The One with Studio Calico PARK AVE Sneaks!


Wednesday, November 26, 2014

December 2014 Studio Calico kits called PARK AVE (including the main PARK AVE kit and add ons: RITZ, HELMSLEY, and WALDORF) are almost here - woohoo! Like many people have voiced, purple is not my most favorite color in the entire world, BUT I do have a lot of pictures of Jane wearing purple so I need purpley supplies! This month Studio Calico knocked it out of the park with their color palette which includes a few awesome shades of purple. Check it out:
So here are sneaks of the four layouts I made. I wish I had time to make more, I was super inspired and could have kept going, but I have a LOT of assignments and tasks to complete this month!

ICE CREAM AT VERSAILLES - For my first PARK AVE main kit only layout I used my Silhouette CAMEO and the Park Ave Project Life Extra-stamp-brush-turned-cut-file and watercolored over most of the words.

THANKSGIVING 2013 - My other PARK AVE main kit only layout also was made with the help of my Silhouette CAMEO. I backed the diamond heart shape I designed exclusively for Studio Calico for December with patterned papers. You know the drill, I use this technique ALL.THE.TIME :)

LOVE YOU - On this layout I created a paper-pieced quilt-like background using favorite patterned papers from all of the kits (PARK AVERITZHELMSLEY, and WALDORF) and then embellished with the Heidi Swapp September skies die cuts in the HELMSLEY add on.

1ST PONYTAIL - For this last layout I used almost the entire package of Printed Flowers and Leaves from the Open Book line by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper to make a wreath. These are found in the RITZ add on.
