studio calico summer blog blitz

welcome to day two of our summer blog blitz! you have a chance to win some of the new products earlier before you can buy it, pretty cool I think! :) As you know, I had the opportunity to play with some new Studio Calico goodies, the new Autumn Press line to be exact! Autumn Press is a super versatile line that can be used for Valentine's Day, Christmas, seasonal or everyday projects (works amazingly with countryside as well)- i love it!! I really love the mix of green in this line with the cream, pink and red, be prepared to see a lot more use of this color palette from me. :)
infectious smile
I love Synai's smile, totally melts my heart with her lil' dimple. :) I mixed in some bits from the winter release- cloud rubons and of course mister huey in the new red- overdue and pumpkin spice. The scrap pads are another new favorite, similar to post it notes.  I also embossed the silhouette stamp onto cork paper to add a bit more texture and dimension.

I also made a mini album from the same line, more of an updated version of my lala mini but a home edition. I used black chalkboard paper for the cover so that I could stamp the title, love these stamps from the home sweet home stamp set.
