only you

While at CHA last week I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely April and her husband Greg of Studio Calico fame.  Not only do they run an AMAZING kit club but they have now branched out into the world of manufacturing their own collections.  Their first collection Home Front debuted this past November and their second collection Anthology debuted at CHA.  Both are fabulous.  I love that they are not too themed and not too feminine with just the right amount of graphic appeal for a gal like me.  LOVE them!

April was a doll and gave me some goodies to play with so play I did and here's what I came up with ...

 

I pulled out some older photos of Darian for this one - I think he's just about 3 years old here.  And I scrapped in 8.5 x 11.  Again.  This is the third layout I've done in the last week in this size.  Not sure why but I'm just loving this size layout lately.  It's fun to be able to switch it up between 8.5 x 11 and 12x12 I think.  One thing I never do is limit myself with the size of a layout just because my albums are more 12x12, etc.  Sometimes things just look better on a smaller scale.  At least I think so.  LOL


There are lots of fun stickers with this collection like the postage label, light bulb, and the tiny bit of green houndstooth scallop border that you see above.  I love to just layer stickers and pop them up with some dimensional adhesive.  And the Sass flower is actually from one of the Studio Calico January kits - don't remember if it was in the main or one of the add ons.  The colors were perfect with this collection.



There are some really fabulous letter stickers with this collection as well.  You can see the printed type stickers above.  They also have letter stickers in the same peacock blue that you see in the Typo Thickers from American Crafts but I just opted for the Thickers for a bit more dimension.  Also the green number circle you see is actually one of the journaling cards from the collection that I simply punched with one of my circle punches.  And a cute little heart punched from some yellow houndstooth paper and zig zag stitched down the middle finishes off my title work.

Thanks for stopping by!  :)
