Studio Calico Blog Hop
Welcome to the Studio Calico blog hop.
We're celebrating State Fair and Countryside being added to the online shop. Most of you have had the opportunity now to purchase it from your local scrapbook store or favorite online retailer, and now we're happy to provide some additional inspiration.
A fun layout I made using an old photo from my trip to Texas before Claire was born. This was the trip my feet swelled so big and never went down....well, they went down about a week after her birth, but it seemed like forEVER.
And, just a quick tutorial for creating those open scalloped circles.
Choose 2 circle punches, one slightly larger than the other.
Punch the smaller first.
Then, turn the larger upside down and center over the window.
To glue, I used the Martha Stewart glue pen and one of the punched circles as a guide.
Circle punches are some of my favorite tools, but one of my favorite items on this layout is the Heart Veneer, which I will give to one of my blog readers. To win, simply leave a comment here letting me know what you call your grandma. Winner will be posted on April 18.
Your next stop....the amazing Celine Navarro.
And if you lose your way, you can always use the designer links to the left on my blog or on the SC blog (to the right).
