Another batch of handmade goodness :D

I thought I should update with a little something 
these few weeks is going to be really busy
with all the tests and exam coming in 
But here goes, some layouts I have done over the last holidays
These layouts are done using the studio calico handmade kit

BY the way, I have updated my gallery at studio calico
You can take a look HERE
and like or comment as you wish :)
Comments are welcome , here there everywhere!

*photos are taken before i write the journalling , some privacy hehe *

Mcguigan is a Winery in Adelaide 
which i visit during may
They produce de-alcoholized wine which i find interested
This layout is done following the sketches by Shimelle Laine

The colourful chevrons are stamped with 
exclusive studio calico stamps

hidden "unglam" photo inside!


Love the chevrons so much that i thought i make a bunch
this layout is on Whispering Wall 
same trip to Adelaide
Love the photo

Little flower i made using studio calico Fab-rip

Here's another fab-rip (fabric )


Ok, i'm officially crazy over the chevron stamp
Now trying them on a sheet of 12x12 kraft cardstock
a more muted tone, but i still love how it looks like :)

A close up
You see, I love twines, 
they are great to add a little touch to every project you're doing
doesnt add bulk, but it does change alot
imagine the layout without the twines
missing a whole lot!


trying a little something different and simple
using my new ek- success cheese punch
to do some decoration with confetti

Another way to use the fabric is to layer it under the photo
fold it a little, make it looks like a section of a curtain on the window


Love this layout
I used this awesome maya roads words stamp 
love the font

some close ups
i did some misting too :)

haha not forgetting the chevron
see that tone - on - tone chevron peeking in the right hand corner ?
still loving chevron


and last but not least!
I was thinking what can i do with this bright pink die cut paper
and i thought i muted it down alittle 

more flowers

flowers :)

and flowers! haha

Wow, that's alot of layouts from one kit
that's how fun a kit can be.
you can make your own kit and scrap lots of photos at once
or buy a kit from various kit clubs like studio calico and many others
I love studio calico's kit so far 
and there are more to discover too :)
If you haven try a kit, give it a try 
it might not be for everyone
but it can be really fun and therapeutic 
sitting down with everything and not having to worry of what to match :)
Because they all matches!

That's all for now and till next time!
