Logging in from our beautiful beach house on Gasparilla Island where I'm here on vacation with my twin Amy + all our G'Rilla friends. I wanted to join in the Reveal Party! Studio Calico's June kit is on sale now and I hope you'll run and grab one... I really LOVED these kits. (I'm a broken record, yes.) I had more time at home this month than I usually do and enjoyed playing this month.
Here's what I made with the Main, Add-on #1, Add-on #2, and Add-on #3 this month:
Year Two was inspired by this image that I found on Tumblr a few weeks ago... I loved the idea of flowers and circles and beads on a black background.
I just added punched flowers and favorite photos from my second year in NYC. I had almost purchased those House of Three black number brads a couple months ago at Archivers but they were so pricey. It made me giddy that they showed up in Add-On #2!
Sunday at the Brooklyn Flea was also inspired by something I'd found on Tumblr. I loved this image of colors and tried to replicate it using patterned papers and photos. I did some masking + misting with punched circles, the alpha from Add-on #1, and Mister Huey's Barnwood.
Aren't the colors just pretty pretty? I used a lot of the Sassafras stickers from Add-on #1 along with Smash papers.
I am now obsessed with this film strip stamp... so many good uses for it! These photos are my VooDoo Donuts ones so I wanted a happy little layout to go with them. I stamped the film strip in a row and then trimmed it out. The naked American Crafts Thickers from the main were sprayed with Mister Huey's Schoolhouse.
This is the last layout I made, I just wanted to do one that was fun. I had been texting with Amy - who made the "smile" tags for the Main Kit - and told her that I loved the tag so much that I wanted to hoard it (which is my habit when things are just too cool to use.) Needless to say, she told me to stop being silly and USE IT!
I like the idea of using photos on cards, so I added a couple when making a card for Megan. I only used Add-on #3 and it came together really easily. The film strip stamp is back again, this time in white Zing.
