studio calico | blog blitz









happy happy monday! I hope you had a joyous Easter weekend. I am still enjoying my four day weekend with family but also excited to participate in the Studio Calico Blog Blitz today. This new release is one of my favorites of all time, seriously.  I love mixing all three of the collections together.

The layout below is made with  papers from the new collections Take Note and Classic Calico Collection v.2.  I am a bit obsessed with  Newsprint V. 2 from Classic Calico Collection v.2 and the anywhere thickers from the Abroad Collection.  Also love the smaller 6x6 paper pads to use for framing photos, love the smaller scale of  my favorite papers!
never-evah!

products used: Mister Huey's Ink- Passport; Pen; Abroad Alpha Stickers; Take Note Adhesive Badges; Hey Y'all Stamp; Hero Arts Wet Cement Shadow Ink; Take Note Collection (Think Tank)

Here is the fun news, I have a Take Note Collection Pack as a giveaway for you today. To enter just leave me a comment on this post sharing something positive about your day or weekend. This giveaway will end on Thursday, April 11th 7PM EST.






































For a complete list of the design team and more chances to win the new collections check out the Studio Calico blog.
