There's lots to be excited about with January's Studio Calico kit.
  • The stamp set in the main kit are one of my favorite ever! Very versatile and I must say they'll probably be my most used ones yet.
  • A new Studio Calico sticker sheet just for has me swooning.
  • The colors of the kit. I'm loving them. Lots of new items from Basic Grey, American Crafts, My Mind's Eye....mmmmmmmmmm plus the yellow and light gray from the SC exclusives. yummy. I could gobble this kit right up!
  • The SC papers in the main kit, I could marry. I'm picturing me and them sitting in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G. The herringbone was a request by Lisa, but the gray/white was purely inspiration from Creature Comforts, one of my favorite design blogs.
Okay, now to the sneaks so you can decide which add-ons you want:

This is from the COLONEL MUSTARD add-on. I used almost the entire pack of the doily Hambly rub-ons on this page. They're so much prettier in person than on this photo. Trust me on that.

Oh and there's a sneak of the stamp set in this add-on.....I can see this one being used quite a bit.

All the items from this photo are from the main kit, WHODUNIT. This is one of my favorite layouts of all time. I'm so proud of myself using those straight pins.....oh, and do you see one of the stickers that I've been swooning over? A camera!!!!

Another photo from the same layout, shows off my favorite piece of paper in this kit. I have a feeling that it's a favorite amongst the design team, too because when I solicited sneak photos, all but one used this piece of paper. Definitely plan on getting the SC patterned paper add-on in January. Definitely.

All items below are from IN THE BILLIARD ROOM. I used the alphabet sheet as a mask. Punched out all those pesky wooden letters (pesky but beautiful). I also used variegated thread from Kimberly. I never would have been brave enough to buy it on my's kind of risky for my practical self, but I love the look of it on this layout!

And a peek at some wooden letters that were so difficult to get my hands on. Better snag this add-on if you want them, because they likely won't appear ever again in a kit.

I'm off for now, but will be back tomorrow with a Typical Greg Moment you won't want to miss. It's a doozie.
