Good Morning! I'm happy to be here to share my projects for the summer show at CHA for Studio Calico.
My layout assignment was to use the Calico Collection, the veneer flags, and the chipboard alphas. With those requirements in mind, this is what I came up with:
I love the veneer but it was a challenge for me personally to use the pendants. I guess I don't use pendants as much as oggle them online! ha! I wanted to keep the woodgrain look but wanted to alter them, so tried something different and I LOVE the result. Say hello to the woodgrain stamp from the new Home Sweet Home set being produced by Hero Arts, and some white zing:
I love how they turned out and will definitely be zinging some veneer with a woodgrain stamp again quite soon.
I grounded the pendants on my layout with a touch of color, specifically, Scraps from the Memoir line. I just love this shade of blue.
I snuck in a bit more color with some blues from Memoir as well as some delicious chipboard clouds, and got lucky with plum colored cardstock from my stash.
I also made some cards primary with the Calico line, but I was only able to find images of one of them....
You can still pick up the Addy alpha stickers, so I used them in green on this card.
Here's that card I made for the SC/Hero blog hope using Memoir. Might as well share that again:
That also uses that Home Sweet Home stamp set.
Inspired by cardmaking and the Memoir line and small scale prints and multiple pieces of paper, I wanted to give away the Memoir 6x6 pad:
Pure deliciousness, friends. Pure. This is definitely my favorite line from the CHA Summer release for Studio Calico.
Be sure to check out the other blogs for chances to win more Studio Calico goodness! I'll be drawing a name later this week.
Have a great day! Davinie
