I thought I'd share a little behind the scenes story on how I ended up designing my first patterned paper for Studio Calico. It started with those mini badges you see in the kit. SC had emailed me a few months ago, requesting that I design some badges for this December kit. They had specifically wanted a floral image for one of the badges, so I obliged and chose a photograph I had taken in Paris.
SC asked to see the original photograph and they liked it so much that they wanted to use it as a black & white patterned paper for the Park Ave kit. I was definitely excited! I know that 'photographs as patterned paper' isn't everyone's cup of tea, so with the opportunity to design the B-side for this paper as well, I kept it graphic and clean with a simple block grid pattern. So for those of you who aren't fans of photographs as patterned papers, hopefully you'll like the B-side instead.
Seeing the In a Creative Bubble brand on actual, physical products never gets old. Whenever I get my SC kits and I know that something I've designed is included in them, I always look for that item first to see how my designs turned out in real life. So very thankful for these opportunities!
