Studio Calico Blog Blitz!

Good morning everyone! Studio Calico's new releases Abroad, Take Note, and Classic Calico vol.2 are now available at Studio Calico and to celebrate, we've decided to have a blog blitz to share some inspiration using the new collections! You may have gotten here from Dawn's blog, or maybe Studio Calico's blog, but even if you didn't, I hope you stick around. There may be a giveaway involved ;)

Each of the new collections are awesome! For this layout, I knew that Take Note would work perfectly with this photo I snapped of some cherry blossoms in my neighborhood. I'm still waiting for my SC box to arrive, which is stuffed to the brim with new SC goodies ;), but I do have the new papers on hand and that's what I used here.


I adore the lattice design of the b-side of the Pink Pearl paper, and it was begging to be cut out ;) That became the main 'element' of my layout. I also used bits and pieces of Protractor (love the grey!), Spreadsheet, and Think Tank

This layout also has some embellishments from past SC releases, like the exclusive Sassafras/SC butterfly stickers from April's City of Lights kit, chipboard butterflies from Autumn Press and alphas from Memoir.

Now onto the giveaway! SC has generously let each of the DT members give away one collection pack, and since I used Take Note here, I'll be giving away the Take Note collection pack! Love the collection packs...2 sheets each of the 8 patterned papers, and an alpha sticker sheet? Awesome :) To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite item from the new SC releases by Thursday, 11:59PM EST. 

Your next stop is Jen Jockisch, who will have more SC inspiration and another giveaway for you :) If you do get lost at any point in the blog blitz, simply head back to the Studio Calico blog and the designers' links are on the sidebar. Have fun!
