Studio Calico The Underground: Chicken Champ

Hey guys!
Hope you're having a great Monday!
I thought I'd pop in tonight to share another Project Life page that I created using the Studio Calico The Underground Project Life Kit!
Check out this beautiful kit!


Here's what I did with it:

I had some fun photos to play with for this week- we had lots of fun with friends (and CHICKENS!) at the end of August! Haha!

I LOVE this masking tape in the kit! It's absolutely perfect!

I love this little guy so much.... he was so determined to catch and pick up all of the chickens... and a duck!... at a friends house. What a little country boy!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Don't miss these awesome kits!



Studio Calico The Underground Project Life Kit: Digital Stamp Brushes

It's here!
The Studio Calico The Underground Kits are available now! Check them out HERE!

I LOVE these kits! Beautiful fall colors!
Today, I wanted to show you a Project Life page I created using some of the Digital Stamp Brushes from Studio Calico. These Digital Stamp Brushes are a great value! Not only can you use them with photo editing software to create digital scrapbook pages, but you can also create cut files with them using Silhouette Studio! I'm going to show you how I did it!

First, create some 3x4 card cuts. Simply use the rectangle tool to draw a quick rectangle. Then, select the shape and adjust the size to 3x4 using the "Scale" tool.
Next, open the .png files in Silhouette Studio. Click file, open, make sure you have "All Files" selected for "Files of Type," and select the appropriate file you would like to open!
Select the "Trace Window," click "Select Trace Area," and drag an outline around the image. Unclick "High Pass Filter" so the entire shape will be cut out. Then, click "Trace." Delete the original .png file and you'll be left with the cut file!
I add my new cut files to my 3x4 card cuts and I have some fun cards to work with! I can either cut them out with patterned paper or do like I did today- cut them out with white cardstock and add accent patterns to peek through the negatives!

I had so much fun documenting Aden and Austin's first day of school with the Project Life The Underground Kit!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Check out the new KITS!
See you soon!



Studio Calico The Underground Sneaks!

Hope you are all enjoying some nice, cool fall weather! I know we are starting to cool down (in the 70's now!) and it's my favorite time of year!
I'm here today to share some sneaks of The Underground Project Life Kit! This kit will be available for everyone to purchase at midnight EST Sept 27th! If you're a subscriber, be sure to join us for the chat at 11 AM EST!


I fell head over heels for the colors in this kit! Here are a few sneaks of what I made:


So much to love!
I wanted to take a minute to let you guys know that I have taken a step back from card making for now. Because of my new teaching position and the amount of time it commands, I will no longer be contributing on the Card Creative Team.  I am very sad that I had to make this decision. The card kits are always SO inspiring (and the stamp sets have been killing it lately!), but I need to cut back and slim down my responsibilities. I will continue to contribute on the Project Life team, as documenting for my family is something that will always make a priority.
Thanks for all the card love over the past couple of years! I'm sure I'll still make cards when time allows- it was my first introduction to stamping so many years ago!
I hope to see you at the Subscriber Reveal Chat!
Have a great day!
