Studio Calico Penny Arcade

Today's the day that Studio Calico's Penny Arcade kits go live. Pretty sure you'll love this one!

Some of my favorite things this month...wood veneers + postage stamps in the scrapbook kit. The entire Spun Sugar add-on (washi tape circle stickers!! I die). The incredibly cool Maggie + Charlotte coordinating stamp sets. The wood veneer shapes + puffy gold asterisks stickers in High Striker. And the cutest fruits ever in the Churros stamp + die combo.

I could go on and on about what I love, but seriously, this kit is another fun one to play with! Here are my projects this month:

BARCELONA | Penny Arcade Scrapbook Kit 
We spent two weeks in Spain, and by the end of the trip our photos totalled to be close to 4,500. Eek. I knew I had to get scrappin' and get a bunch of them on a page, so I made this double-page spread. The right side is a quick grid and the left highlights one of my favorite photos. I used my Cameo to cut out 'Barcelona', as well as the cute cloud die-cut I designed this month. I used the cloud stencil in the scrapbook kit as my guide for handstitching a couple of extra clouds as well!

This one was a lot of fun to make. I wanted to mix things up and use some circle on my page, so I combined patterned papers from the main kit and my printables. I used a couple handy circle punches as well as my Cameo so I could get lots of different sized circles. I LOVE the cities paper in the main kit and had to include a bit at the bottom that's 'peeking' through! 

One of my current favorite photos of my nephew :) I had fun using some of my printables, bits of papers, and the washi tape circle stickers from Spun Sugar. The gold star rub-ons are from Skeeball

This one is personally my favorite layout this month! I wanted to have fun with the incredibly cool washi tape circle stickers in Spun Sugar, so I punched out a bunch of 1" circles and stuck the stickers on them. Then I lined them up to create a circle grid. I cut the die-cut cloud with my Cameo, and added some handstitching detail to finish it off. This layout features one of my favorite photos I took in Hong Kong :)

As for my Project Life spread for this month, I went back to mid-May to document the couple of days I spent in Hong Kong. I took a bunch of really great aerial view photographs (from sky100, which I'll blog about later), and I decided to blow up a favorite one as a full size 12x12 for the left page. I used a design F page protector for the right side and managed to document some of my favorite details from the trip :) I might add an insert as well for memorabilia, since I don't plan on making a mini-book for this trip.

Happy reveal day! Don't forget the Brighton Pier Bundle is still available and if you're a subscriber, anything you buy in the shop will be bundled with the kit shipping until the end of the month!
