I'd like to share my favorite layout and a few comments on my year of Studio Calico kits. I will do 6 of them today, and 6 of them later in the week as not to overwhelm you.
I got the Ray gun add-on. Kit killed after 13 layouts. My favorite part was the yellow Pebbles candy dot buttons. It was hard to pick a fave layout since my style has changed a lot since. This one is the most me! I really feel that I would have made so much more of this fantastic kit if I had recieved it later.
Mind the Gap
I got the Boogie Board and Sandcastle add-ons. This is the kit that has suited me the least. It was too tu-toned for me. It was completely blue/green all across. My favorite products from the kit is the above PP and the Basic Grey brads in the Main.
This kit was so me it's as if I picked it out myself. I loved it! And the amazing Amy Tan was guest DT. I got the Debate Team add-on and add-on PP. I missed out on Thespians, which still bothers me. But I got some of the product in it elsewhere, plus I just found the stamp for sale at the lovely Caz Hancock's blog. Yay! I have made 17 layouts with this kit, and it's nowhere near killed. That extra add-on PP... I should have learned not to order that again. Getting the full add-on kit is much easier to work with than just paper.
Another amazing kit, that still remains one of my favorites. I got the Meadow Lark and Almanac add-ons. Almanac had no PP but the Amy Tangerine mini book. Loved it! I have so much awesomeness left in this kit, I should really go back and work with it. I've made 10 layouts and part of the mini and when buying 2 add-ons that really isn't enough!
Just a few weeks ago I made Layout of the week at the SC blog with a layout from this kit. Myself I like the above layout better. Those exclusive limegreen letterstickers are my fave part of the kit. Although there was SOOOO much amazing product in Handmade. The exclusive Amy Tangerine leaves and really all the alphas. I got the Tatting add-on. I've made 11 layouts and it's hanging on by a thread. There's probably enough product left to make a few cards. This is another kit that's still in my Top 5 of the year. And it's still available!
Okay! That was my first six kits. Come back for more tomorrow!
