Studio Calico Blog Blitz!


At Studio Calico, we're so excited to bring you 3 new collections:

These products have just begun shipping and they've been so fun to play with....even having to scrap propped up laying down in bed :)


Supplies: Take Note 6x6" Pad; Abroad 6x6" Pad, Calico2 6x6" Pad, POW glitter paper (powder & caramel), vellum, Stepping Stone Alphabet Stamps, Weathervane Ink Pad, Staz-on Jet Black Ink Pad, Precision Pen -03.

I cut strips of vellum, glitter paper, and the patterned papers from Take Note & Abroad 6x6" pads, lined them up down the edge of my paper and adhered them with my glue pen, only in the center of the strip. Next, I punched holes with a circle punch and exacto knife for the center one, and backed it with subtle tone-on-tone papers from the Calico2 6x6" pad.

After adding stamping, journaling, and photos, I escaped bedrest for 2 minutes to stitch these down.


Hope you enjoy the blog blitz!
Next stop is Celine.

If you get lost along the way, you can always go back to the SC blog for the complete list.

Don't forget to leave a comment here. I'm giving away my favorite 6x6" pad from the Take Note Collection.
