sneak peeks!

I've been such a bad blogger and I plan to change that...although I say that every time and end up posting consistently for a few months, then dropping off the face of the planet for another few. Such is life.

In summation: I'm fine. Claire is great. Greg is up to his usual shenanigans. The cows are great except for the bull who now has a bum hip (which will obviously impair his...ahem...performance, if you know what I mean.

Just a couple sneaks to share with you for the November Studio Calico kit.

This layout, I really love. Be sure to pick up the chalk inks that were new to the shop last month. They work great at re-coloring chipboard. I used Old Road on the letters here.
This layout was made using the main kit only. You can see 3 of the exclusive SC items here. I used mist on the thickers and it turned out so well in person. The white graph pattern acted as a resist and well, it's just so pretty. I especially like them sprayed with clover.

I still have a couple more projects to do with this kit, maybe even a card (gasp!). I better get a move on.

One last thing, the winner of the Field Guide kit is:

Field Guide Blog Hop!

I absolutely loved the FIELD GUIDE kit way more than I thought I would. The subtle colors with pops of kraft, charcoal and black worked so well together. Every layout just fell together so effortlessly (except for the fact that I misspelled a word in the layout below and had to readjust).
Each of the DT members made a layout with only the FIELD GUIDE kit plus a few staple supplies. It's the first layout pictured in each designers' gallery. I added the following items:

Several of the designers have created new layouts plus are blogging more about the layouts that appeared in the FIELD GUIDE gallery. Be sure to visit the SC blog for the complete list.
