Way back when... (all the way in January! ha!) I was lucky enough to work with Studio Calico's newest lines - Abroad & Classic Calico 2 - to create a bunch of pages for display in their booth at the CHA Winter show...
And partly due to the craziness of that time for me (and the amount of work that I was balancing on my plate), I never got around to sharing them on the blog. So what better time than now. :)
The collections (along with Take Note!) JUST ARRIVED in stores, and are sure to sell quickly - I grabbed extras of my favorites already. ;)
Here they are...
...Click Click is lots and LOTS of new Abroad. The background aqua building print paper is the B-Side of the Locals Paper from the line - my personal FAVORITE. The pic (that my sister took of her cutie daughter, Ellie) was perfect with the new wood veneer cameras - which should be avail soon!
And the "click" title was cut with my silhouette (using the font "Japan") from the Frequency paper in the Classic Calico 2 line.
...Happy Girl - another cutie Ellie pic (I used her a LOT for these projects!!!). The bold background print is the B-side of the Destination Paper. I cut lots of little scrap strips from the papers with banner tails at the end and then tucked them under my photo & machine stitched wiht a zigzag stitch.
The woodgrain butterfly stickers were the perfect accent here (layered on top of both punched & chipboard butterflys), and the aqua polka at the bottom is the B-side of Departure, also another fave from the line!
...Hello Sunshine (yep, Ellie AGAIN!). ;) I just LOVE this pic. It's one of my favorites ever of her. So I made it BIG. ;) And added a strip of my VERY VERY FAVORITE NUMBER PAPER above the photo - You may have noticed this paper has popped up already in my Project Life spreads - and it no doubt will MANY more times, bc i love it that much. :) ha.
...You Shine. The background "burst-of-rays" paper here that the design was inspired by, is the Frequency paper from Classic Calico 2. I cut my photo into a circle and then added "rays" of other prints from the Classic Calico 2 line to follow the "rays" already on the background paper.
Punched stars and wood veneer stars "shine" along my rays... and I mixed in an aqua colored thread when I did some machine stitching on this page - usually forget to swap out my thread color, and always end up liking the look when I do! :)
...(and finally!) Sail Away - a favorite pic from Eric & my "no-kids" vacay last summer to St John! We didn't really "sail away", we definitely "flew away", but I couldn't get that song out of my head for some reason (?!) while I was making this, so I just ran with it! ;)
