SC Inspires Blog Hop

Welcome to the Studio Calico Inspires blog hop!  Today I wanted to take a minute and share with you how SC inspires me.  I also just *might* have an awesome giveaway at the end of this post!

As some of you know, I'm part of the Studio Calico Creative Team.  Specifically, I'm on the Card Team, but my love for SC products don't stop there.  I actually subscribe to the Project Life kits & have for quite some time.  They coordinate perfectly with the Card Kits & allow me to really stretch my supplies and create some fun projects each month.
I would consider myself a "dabbler."  Although I love making cards, I also really enjoy crafting in all aspects.  I love making home decor pieces, gifts, wearable art, etc. out of papercrafting/scrapbooking supplies.  And, although I'm not a traditional (weekly) "Project Lifer", I love using pocket pages to document trips, events, & everyday life with my family.

The Project Life kit is perfect for someone like me because with this kit, you can do it all!  The journaling cards work really well as focal points on greeting cards.  The PL kits also always come with amazing embellishments.  The copper rub-ons in October's kit were just the thing to dress up the bottom of this card.
Sometimes the cards are so amazing that I just pull them from my kits & hang them on my fridge or in my craft room for inspiration.  I found this tiny frame at the dollar store & added one of the 3x4 cards from the Underground PL kit to it.  Voila!  Instant home decor! (Isn't that printed masking tape pure PERFECTION?!?  I want to use it on everything!)
The thing I love most about Studio Calico is that they are always pushing the boundaries to create new & innovative products.  That's what inspires me like none other.  And, I've found that having fresh products each month really helps the creativity flow.

I filled this little jar with fall scented potpourri & applied one of the rub-ons from the PL kit to the front.  And... of course, I can't put that masking tape down.  It's just perfect for everything!
And now... are you ready for some fun?  Let's start with this FREE PRINTABLE that's available for download right now!  Click Here to get yours!

  17. I guess every season has something wonderful for me. I love spring when the trees blossom, I love summer for the warmth it gives, fall for the beautiful colors (and some days I just enjoy hanging by the fireplace and crafting or reading a book) and I love the winter for the beautiful serene scenes you get with the snow (eventhough I just wished you could stay at home when there's snow and the roads are slippery ;)).
