July 2015 Studio Calico kits called FAIRGROUND are now available for subscribers at Studio Calico! It was so fun to be back for a month :)

DESCRIPTION: I knew I wanted to use a lot of patterned paper (naturally!) and browsed through my box of punches to find the perfect shape. Instead of just one, I chose four circles and went to town punching. Then when I was trying to pick a background, this paper in the FAIRGROUND kit immediately jumped out at me - there are circle sunbursts all over it and magically I had punched just enough circles to go on top! It was meant to be :)

JOURNALING SAYS: Rain or shine, and let's be honest, it's usually rain, we have places to go and things to see so we've learned to pack for rain!

HOW TO: Punch concentric circles from all the papers in the FAIRGROUND main scrapbook kit - one of the papers has 16 different patterns on it so make sure to punch lots of circles from that paper. Adhere them over the sunburst circles printed on one of the papers in the main scrapbook kit. Punch a photo into a circle and add it to the mix. Place letter stickers around the photo for a title. Journal on one of the white circles (or in this case, half circle). Embellish here and there with bits and pieces from the main scrapbook kit. Done!

SUPPLIES: Scrapbook kit: FAIRGROUND by Studio Calico; Cardstock, adhesive: American Crafts; Circle punches: Fiskars

DESCRIPTION: Every month for the past year and a half or so I've had the super fun opportunity to design cut files for Studio Calico! This month I had a background as well as these candy jars and I thought it'd be fun to put them to good use :)

JOURNALING SAYS: Easter morning the bunny had visited and hidden candy-filled eggs all over the living room. You eagerly opened them all up at once and went to town, but of course you only picked out the chocolate!

HOW TO: Use a Silhouette Cameo to cut the candy jars from the multi-patterned Poolside/Crate Paper paper then adhere them on the right side of a kraft layout background. I used a glue dot here and there to attach them so they'd lift off the page a bit to create shadows and dimension. I adhered some of the inner-pieces inside the jars and then filled them all with "candy" - wood buttons, wood veneer lightbulb, asteriscs and dots from a Thickers pack, punched paper circles, and enamel dots - ALL found in the FAIRGROUND scrapbook add-on - perfect right?! Layer papers down the left side and bend up the edges. If you turn over the gold transparency, it's pink(!!) so I cut a strip and then adhered it along with a photo and pink doily. Journal on the white paper and you're done!
