The One with Studio Calico CIRQUE Sneaks!

Monday, January 26, 2015

I've only skipped one month of contributing to the Studio Calico kits gallery, but it seemed like an eternity and I was having some SERIOUS withdrawals! Therefore I was super excited to be asked to contribute to the February 2015 CIRQUE kits. Got my fix, haha! That is until next time :) In addition to the main CIRQUE scrapbook kit there are a few add ons called FLYING TRAPEZE, HIGH WIRE, and RINGMASTER. Since February is the month of love it's only fitting that there's a lot of pink (yay!) but there are also plenty of blues and greens, oranges and yellows, so really you can pick and choose whatever colors fit your fancy to scrap your photos.
Here are sneaks of the four layouts I made!

I LOVE THIS GIRL - I was inspired by a heart cross stitch pattern, but instead of using thread I used patterned papers from the CIRQUE main kit only.

- There are some jumbo black die cut letters by in the CIRQUE main scrapbook kit. Black is a tough color for me to use when scrapbooking for some reason. Note to self to figure that one out and overcome that challenge. So instead I traced the letters onto patterned papers and cut them out to make a custom background title.

I LOVE YOUR SMILE - I had the opportunity to design some more exclusive cut files for Studio Calico including this heart background! I die cut the hearts using my Silhouette CAMEO and then backed them with papers from all of the kits: CIRQUEFLYING TRAPEZEHIGH WIRE, and RINGMASTER.

BE KIND... AND LOVE - For this last layout I fell in love with the Noah alpha stamp and spent a couple hours stamping a long title onto patterned papers from all of the kits (CIRQUEFLYING TRAPEZEHIGH WIRE, and RINGMASTER) and cut them out by hand. I also had fun layering some of the printables for February.

  1. Wow! And how long did it take you to cut that long title out? I LOVE these sneaks! The cross stitch pattern is bursting with color, great photo of your loves (in the "O"), and of course love the hearts and watercolors.
