Studio Calico Blog Blitz - CLOSED



Happy Monday!  How was your Easter?  We had our 6th Annual Easter function at my house.  I love how it has turned into a family reunion of sorts.  It's really the only time of year I see some of the family on my side, so what started as a way to introduce people to Miss Payton Jayne has turned into a fun annual event.  I'm already thinking of which home improvement projects Steve has to be finished with by the time we do this again next year.  ha!

I'm welcoming you to the blog today for the Studio Calico Blog Blitz.  Have you had a chance to check out the new collections from Studio Calico, Take Note, Abroad, and Calico v.2? 

If you are following the hop you probably came from Celine's blog. 

I used a little of the new and a little of the old for this layout I made after our recent camping trip.

Layout:

I've been seeing this design all over the place on Pinterest, with these arrows/flags. It's very popular in home decor, so it's cool it's made it's way to paper projects.

To create them is very simple.  Trim a square.  I made mine 2x2.  Then trim the square on the diagonal, creating two triangular shapes.  I did both of these with my paper trimmer.  After that, take your scissors, and hand cut inside the triangle to cut the various widths, layer, and adhere.  I didn't use any adhesive save my sewing machine so I could bend some of them up to make it more dimensional. 


I adore this woodgrain.  I especially adore this woodgrain layered with Vanilla, rather than the other way around. It's a really lifelike woodgrain. 

Giving it away:
In honor of the Executive, which is the name of this woodgrain print in the Take Note Collection, I'm excited to be able to give it away.  Leave a comment on this post if you'd like to try out the Take Note Collection:


There's two sheets of each print in the Collection Pack along with a sticker sheet.  Not too shabby and look at all the fun prints! 


Next stop is Dawn's blog.  If you get lost, though, you can always head back to the SC blog and catch up.  Each designer is giving away a Collection pack of their choice. 

Have a great Monday!  I will be posting a winner on Thursday.  Davinie
