It's that time again for the reveal of the newest Studio Calico kits! As usual there are LOTS of things to love and I will share my faves with you here!
>> SHINE | Supplies Used <<
The wood veneer piece is from the Pip Add On Kit. You can use thread to fill in the stitch holes or you can skip that step and emboss it with gold glitter embossing powder! Or you could do both! That would look fabulous!
>> LOVELY DAY | Supplies Used <<
I was in LOVE with the book paper, the wood veneer piece and the cork leaves from this kit, so I built the page in a way that allowed me to layer all of that and showcase it at the same time.
>> YAY!! | Supplies Used <<
On this layout I was wanting more of the yellow color from the Yay! badge. So I pulled out my water brush and watercolors (linked above) and painted the large heart onto the background paper. I kept going over it until I had it thick enough and dark enough. Once it was dry and I had the rest of the layout complete, I added the dots and caption right onto the painted heart with a My Favorite Pen.
>> REMEMBER THIS | Supplies Used <<
QUICK TIP >> The two large circles here are from the digital printables (linked above). You will want to open the .png files up individually and then resize them. You can open them in Photoshop to make them bigger or you can simply open the .png files into preview and change the size when you print by changing the scale to something larger than 100%. I just kept changing the percentage until I felt like it was as big as I wanted.
>> JUST A NOTE card | Supplies Used <<
I added a piece of book paper to the background on this card and then layered vellum over the top of it to make it more subtle. The punched circle pieces were the leftovers from this other card I made using the same supplies. It's a great way to use your scraps!!
You can see the three other cards I made here in my gallery, along with supply lists for those as well!
Let me know if you have any questions about my projects this month!
Happy Reveal Day!!
