Studio Calico's January Kit - County Fair - is now live! Even though December was crazy -it was DECEMBER after all(!), I still made time to make as much as I could with this kit - bc I loved it that much. :)
Took a new approach to accomplishing my scrapping this month >> by spreading everything out on my dining room table and working while the boys played. It was revolutionary for me, as I've really hated being cooped up during the evenings in my office/guestroom lately. This may be the new me when it comes to crafting! ;)
This is what I made with January's Kit....!
..."Berry Sweet E" - This is my "main kit only" page this month - loved the #s stamp and designed my layout around that with list-style journaling. Photo of Ev from earlier in the month. Copper Metallic Zing! used with the stamp (looks fab with kraft c/s!)
..."NYC" - a big old pic from our little NYC trip last sept. and then a photostrip of sorts running across the bottom of the page. I loved so many of the elements of the Photobooth addon and put lots of them to good use here! The photostrip is elevated with foam adhesive on top of the big pic - not sure that translates in my photo of it, but I loved the added dimenion it provided. Note: The stamp used here is part of Ringtoss!
..."Out-takes" - these are just a few of the (what i think are) adorable pics of the boys, that didn't quite qualify as "card-quality", but that i still LOVED, taken during what ended up being our holiday card photoshoot (which =s me randomly deciding one weekday afternoon that the light streaming in through our backyard is TOO fabulous to waste, bartering with E that he could have "no nap" if he cooperated with pics, and repeatedly coercing Noah into giving Evan a "Hug"!)
..."Our Card" - is just that. the front side of our holiday card. I used washi tape to attach it so you can flip to the backside which is our halloween "super" family pic, and says "have a super new year!". That little camera stamp is in Photobooth and is THE.BEST.
..."Thanks" - more bits and pieces! and LOTS of SHINE!!!! :)
..."XO" - The SC mini wood veneer alpha from County Fair is most def something that I'll be hoarding for a while! and the stamps here are PERFECT for valentines projects and cards, and are from Shooting Gallery (the other addon that I worked with this month).
the end. :)
