Just a Note

I put the Studio Calico Card Add-on: Spaulding Bowl to good use this month and I thought I'd show you how I whipped up a bunch of quick note cards!
I LOVE the stamps that come with this kit and love even more that you can get the digital stamps and customize them to fit your needs. For these cards, I used the Copper Mountain Card Kit Digital Stamps, white cardstock, some patterned paper from the Spaulding Bowl kit, the ribbon from the kit, and some tape.

I created these cute little 3x4 cards in PSE with the digital stamp brushes- keeping it simple with the sweet glasses and the "just a note" sentiment.
I printed and cut out the 3x4 cards. After adding some patterned paper to the plain white card bases, I added the ribbon to the 3x4 cards and adhered them to the card bases. Finished them off with little bows!
I made these cards (6 total) in less than 20 minutes! Super easy and these will be great to have on hand!



Here are a couple of examples:

I have a few more projects to share featuring the
These kits are available now! Run over and check them out before they're gone! Looks like the Card and Project Life Add-on kits are already sold out!

This card was created with the Copper Mountain Card Kit!
This little whale is so stinkin' cute! I was so glad to see him as a stamp and also with a coordinating die! Such a fun image and such a versatile product! I stamped him with navy ink and added some gold ink accents. I cut him and the water splash out with the awesome dies that come with the kit! I cut the sentiment to change up the layout a bit, too.

This card was created with the Card Add-on kit: Spaulding Bowl!
I love this kraft/white diagonal paper in this kit! I cut the paper into strips and glued them down alternating the diagonal colors. I cut a circle with my Cameo and attached it to the card. The "hello" was cut with my Cameo and colored with Copics. Super easy and I love the ombre effect I got!

I created this one with the Copper Mountain Project Life Kit!
Broke out some of the stamps in this layout- love the circle stamps- so fun! The wood veneer in this kit are really awesome, too- definitely one of my new favorites! They are a really funky font and so fun to work with! I kept this page very clean and simple with some fun little touches here and there.
Here's a close up of that awesome wood veneer alpha- LOVE it!

Some fun exclusive puffy asterisks stickers from Twine and Ink in the kit, too! Love them so much!

It's super easy to customize the wood veneer in the kit with markers! Make them any color you want or leave them the natural wood color!

Veneer and sequins.... love it all....

If you're a subscriber- the kits are available NOW! If you're not a subscriber- the kits will be available at midnight tonight!
This year, I'm contributing for the Card Kit and the Project Life Kit- I've got an awful lot to share with you! I'll be sharing my projects over the next couple of days here on the blog-o, but you can see all of my projects and detailed supply lists in my GALLERY!
Here are a couple of things I've made with these gorgeous kits......
This card was created with the Copper Mountain Card Kit!
I love that sweet little fish stamp and when I saw the "you're my greatest catch" sentiment, I knew I wanted to play on the "many fish in the sea" phrase! I cut a circle with my Cameo, laid the circle over my card base, and stamped the fish in the negative- super quick and fun!
LOVE the woodgrain patterned paper and the gold thread in this kit, too!
This card was created with the Card Add-on kit: Spaulding Bowl!
I fell head over heels for this beautiful book stamp! I stamped the book line with black ink on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Then, I stamped another line of books on kraft cardstock- lining them up with the books I colored.
I chose colors to coordinate with this fabulous patterned paper that came in the kit!

 And how about a Project Life page? I created this one with the Copper Mountain Project Life Kit!
LOVE the bright colors in this kit- fun oranges and blues- so I pulled them together for this page. I used a lot of the bright and colorful cards and embellishments on this page- love mixing the colorful elements with my black and white photos! I also created the 4x6 camera card with the Evalicious Exclusive Digital Stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have fun shopping today!
I'll be back tomorrow with a couple more projects!




Quick and Simple Holiday Tags!

I made these quick and easy holiday tags with the Blue Note Kits from Studio Calico a few weeks ago! I thought I'd share them here in case you need to make some quick holiday tags for your Christmas gifts (I know I need to make some more!).


I used some of the digital cut files from Studio Calico to create these fun tags.  I cut all the tag designs with my Cameo and then backed them with patterns found in the Blue Note Kits.

There are so many digital cut designs available or you can make your own designs using your Silhouette Studio software.
LOTS of great tag options- your Cameo will definitely help you whip up some quick tags for your gifts!

love life: project life catch up


I don't know about you guys, but something about December makes me want to get all caught up in my Project Life album! Haha! I remember sitting with my family on New Year's Eve last year frantically working to finish up our album- and I did it! I don't know if that will happen this year, but I thought I would at least try!
Found these photos stuck on my camera from August and decided to use the Studio Calico Printshop collection to help me get them in the album. LOVE the black and white bold patterns in this collection- and I think they look awesome with these colorful photos!
I used Hashtagged, Dear John, and Criss Cross papers from the collection along with some regular white and black cardstock. I also added some fun Printshop Sequins and Mini Badges!
I had some fun with the Printshop Digital Cut Files, too! The "fave" script word and the bubble border under the bottom photo are from the Printshop Fave Cut Files and the fun oval frame around Sophia's pretty face is from the Printshop Mama Mushroom Cut Files.
LOVE these cut files.... so fun! And perfect for Project Life!
