Field Guide Blog Hop! - comments are now closed.


Hello Hello!  Thanks for stopping by!  If you've landed here, you either got lucky, or you heard we're having a blog hop with Studio Calico.  Each month I get a box of delicious goodies delivered, and do my best to create projects I enjoy and hope that I inspire others with ideas for their projects when the kits arrive.  This last month, one of the things we decided to try was to create projects using the main kit only.  Normally I get my kit and the add-ons I purchase, and toss them all together, as the often play well together.  It was fun to play with one package at a time, and create a layout using just the main kit.  There's also paper, embellishments, and an alphabet too, so you really don't need more than that.

This is what the Field Guide kit looked like:


Delicious exclusive patterns from Studio Calico, a stamp set, and the chipboard butterflies from Sassafras for Studio Calico are FABULOUS.  I don't know what it is about them, but they are fabulous.

This is the layout I created with the main kit this month (if you didn't get a chance to check out my projects at reveal):





My hubby and I recently celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary, so I wanted a simple layout with a lot of journaling.  We took advantage of a friend's wedding to dash out of town for the weekend, so I included a photo of us just before the ceremony with my iPhone and the Instagram ap. 

The journaling was made with my "new" old typewriter.  I. am. in. love.  I'm definitely including more typewritten journaling on my projects. 

The butterflies for this project were fun.  On another layout I created with this kit, I used clipart from the computer, trimmed it out and used it on my layout.  With these butterflies, however, I used the new butterfly masks manufactured by Studio Calico, and some Clay mist.  I misted the butteflies, then hand stittched them before trimming them out.

I hand stitched them first as I was close to the edge of the shape, and didn't want the paper to tear as I was sewing.  I stitched around the edge of the masked image.  After the butterflies were trimmed out i splattered some dewey just for fun.  I stitched the shapes before adhering them to the layout because I wanted more dimension, and the wee bit of lift that the thread on the back of the shape allowed was the perfect amount.

I was inspired by the Sassafras butterflies to use this shape, so I had to include some of the chipboard pieces on my layout as well.

I REALLY like the Basic Grey alphas that were in the main kit.  I adore the font and used them for a few of my projects this month.  I also like that there were shipping tags.  My vote is to have a couple in every kit!

I used most of the papers in this main kit for my projects this month.  And I'm so excited.  We like to have giveaways when we do blog hops, and the giveaway this month is VERY generous.  If you haven't had a chance to check out Studio Calico kits, and like the looks of this one, each Design Team member is going to be GIVING it away!  woot!  (check out my sidebar for links). 

If you would like a chance at the Field Guide kit, leave a comment here! (if you already subscribe and are the winner, you could gift it to a friend or have twice as many butteflies.  woot!).  Leave a comment and I'll draw for a winner and announce it on Monday. 

My question?  Do you have a pumpkin patch where you live, and have you or are you plannin to go?  We have plans to head to http://www.pumpkinco.com/ tomorrow I think (although I hear they are charging for the petting zoo now.  boo).  i LOVe a good pumpkin patch though, so I'm excited.  This one has a big corn maze, and the theme this year is Star Wars.  Fun times.

Have a great weekend!  Davinie

  27. Great page. I love the layered butterflies. Also, thanks for the tip about stitching things before sticking to a layout for extra dimension, I'd not thought about that!

    We have farms we can visit nearby but we don't do pumpkins quite as enthusiastically here (england) so there won't be huge amounts of them - wish there was! x

    ReplyDelete
  28. No..... no pumpkin patches where I live here in Australia.... and not the right season either *LOL*
    Beautiful layouts as always!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Happy anniversary :) Love your layout, the journaling written with your typewriter is awesome!

    And I love that you've made a lettersize layout, I love those!

    We don't have a pumpkin patch near our house, so we just buy our pumpkins in the grocery store :)

    Have a happy weekend!

    Since I don't have little ones no pumpkin patches for us anymore (grown kids just don't make the time for those kind of things) but our farmers market has great selection of pumpkins very inexpensive so i can still stock up. I have fond memories of all you can carry patch when I was a kid... we would load my dad down to a point where it was comical he was a pro with the balancing act and often dropped a few after the check out lol

  170. Love all the butterflies - and congrats to you and your hubby on your 11 years. :)
    Pumpkin patch: no, we don't really have one closeby. Years ago, when my kids were toddlers, we would trek out to this place that had a small train, barn, hayride...I think they hosted company picnics. They gave out pumpkins with every child admission, so I guess that counts as a pumpkin patch. Sometimes I really miss those toddler days!

  177. I'm sure we will hit the pumpkin patch this year. It is a great photo op with my little kids. Last year my youngest wasn't walking yet, so we will have to go this year. Thanks for the chance to win this kit!
