BBB :: bonus bluish bbb…

Reveal day has come and gone but there’s still plenty goodies in the shop along with some BRAND NEW items. Did you score everything you hoped at the March reveal? These kits were full of my favourites goodies and I’d love for you to have an opportunity to play with them as well. It’s those tiny things that get me so excited each month when my box arriving on my doorstep :)

Today I share with you my bonus project made with ‘Office Hours’ blues and one card from my printable journal cards set (I mentioned about them in THIS POST just before the reveal).

life goes on

I know, this is sooooooo BLUish! I know! But I found an excuse in this photo… it’s also bluish, so… is it enough to won’t be judge?

life goes 1

‘Office Hours’ :: reveal

MAR-Reveal_Page_header

I had been playing with my ‘Office Hours’ kits since they arrived on my doorstep and I must say… they’re kinda awesome. A perfect colour scheme. This is exactly what I need to get out of this winter mood. I needed a punch of vibrant shades like this amazing green in various hues – so… vernal!

Main_SB_-_All

OK starting from the [main kit only] projects, the first one (and probably my favourite this month):

spring

I mixed few different techniques here: embossing, stamping, watercolouring. I cuted out the flowers and use my own way of scripted – made with my latest favourite tool – nib. I was so scared when I started playing with this palette, I felt uncomfortable and doubfully amoung those green mixed in a huge contrast with reds… but finally when I finished I was satisfied with the results.

Be frelessly authentic

Next layout made only with the main Scrapbook kit… okkkk… it was very dangerous experiment. I used a photo ful of vibrant colours, huge contrasts, with my beloved roommate on it… and I added flowers to that. You have to admit that it was risky (I won’t mention about the gold elements from the paper and vibrant green foam letters).  I have to say that this is not my ‘best project ever’, but believe me, this is not that bad as it could be. The effect is good enough to won’t be ashame (I hope so).

+     +     +

OFFICE HOURS ADDONS

Now next projects made with ‘Office Hours‘ kit mix with this month’s add-ons:

TO DO, ROLODEX and COFFEE BREAK.

hello Batman

‘I’m not saying… I’m Batman, I’m just saying no one has ever seen me and Batman in a room together’ …should I said something more? :) I LOVE this wooden paper with little ‘+’! This is so… warm! and gold hues suit perfect to it!

waiting for spring

The meaning of this project is: ‘While waiting for Spring…’ This time I definitely lost my sense of harmony and I entered at an inconvenient way of dangerous combinations of colours… and this is the result – it’s not a defeat but I find it ‘cheaper’ than my other works. It was not my day for sure – sorry. I had been struggling with this ‘cloud’ paper since I opened the box and now I would like to blame this pattern for this disappointing effect – can I?! Please… at least until I will visit our Creative Team gallery and see how fabulous things my friends done with this piece of dreamy paper.

+     +     +

Main kits and add-on kits are available for purchase at 12:00 am EST on 02/28/2014.
Remember, the links to purchase the Scrapbook, Card, or Project Life kits will not work until this time.\

Printable present for you.

I prepraed a printable present for you which is related to the Studio Calico march kits! The colours in ‘Office Hours‘ have stolen my heart, especially the green and blue combo which is probably one of my favourites. I decided to create few journal cards for you, using my watercolour skills. I know that almost all of you love watercolours, so I thought that such little gift just before the reveal would be a nice idea (am I right? please let me know am I right!). This is the photo of my tiny gift:

AM printable cards

I had so much fun creating them! If you want to download them (for personal use only) you just have to click>>> HERE<<<. I hope you will have a lot of fun with these cards. Remember – you can use them in various ways. They can be the perfect addition to your layouts, Project Life® spreads, cards (I mean, is there ever too much PL® cards?! Nope, I didn’t think so either) or any other project really… need I say more?

I’m not good at writing, so it will be better to share the first layout I made using my printable items (in the upcoming days I will publish more projects, also PL® spreads – not mine – so stay tuned, I won’t leave you without an inspiration!)

It's because of you

I decided to stuck in a pastel palette. The shades suit to the ‘Office Hours’ kits but I chose only the most subtle combinations. On this page I used only green cards, one of them was embellished with a brad and letter stickers:

it's 3

All of these embellishments and letters are coming from the previous Studio Calico kits or they are available in the shop, amoung the items from the latest Studio Calico lines: ESSENTIALS, LEMON LUSH and COLOR THEORY.

it's 4

Are you going to make anything with my journal cards? If yes, please share your ideas with me and link your project in the comments below! I will enjoy EVERY SINGLE creation. So, what do you say, are you IN?!

+     +     +

It’s almost reveal over at Studio Calico so that means I can start shopping!!! This is an amazing opportunity to minimalize the shipping costs. As an international member I have to care about that and I am so grateful that I can combine my shopping with kits 12 hours before the subscriber pre-sale (or 24 hours before reveal time if you are not a subscriber). It doesn’t matter if you an international or not, this offer is great for all of us :)

I prepared a subjective list of my favourites items from the SC shop which I find perfect to work with ‘Office Hours’ kits. Be sure to put them into your bascket before the reveal to make sure that you will get your favourite goodies before they will be sell out! I picked up these ,which I used during my latest work or which I find great especially for the March kits combo:

March

1. brand NEW Mr. Huey’s watercolour set – I love it! These watercolours are perfect for crafting. The colour is not such transparent as usually in a professional watercolour media but thanks to this it’s more useful for scrapbooking. The colours are nice and vibrant.

2.Transparent Watercolour Papers – these are my totally favourite. I could use them all the time. If someone would ask me, if I could only choose one watercolour media and use them to the end of my life – I would say: ‘I choose Peerless Watercolour Papers’.

3. Whole range of Color Theory items – especially in blue and green shades. All depends on you. You can choose: die inks, buttons, sequins, enamel dots, alphabets, papers – or you can buy ALL of them at once :)

4. Essentials stars & other details – I am in love in details! I always feel that I need all of them, in every colour (not brown, I hate this colour). You can choose which of them are your favourites: stars, geotags, enamel dots, clips, alphabets, fancy hearts or tiny cameras.

5. and ‘must have’ tool – great, professional scissors. This time I chose Non Stick Snips by Tim Holtz. They are perfect – especially when you have to cut those little flowers…

If some of these items are already ‘sold out’ (what is quite possible), remember that you can click a ‘notify me’ button to get the ASAP information when they will be restock. Another important information – if they will be restock during the first week AFTER reveal you also have a chance to combine the shippings (I love this) :)

+     +     +

So, coming back to the poit of this post. I hope you like my little [download] gift. I would love for you to stop by and check it out :)

Thank you guys!

Enjoy and see you tomorrow at the pre-sale!!!

‘Office Hours’ senaks and exclusive offer.

This is one of these exciting days when I can share with you a piece of secret. Two days ago I received new Studio Calico ‘Office Hours’ kits and it took me only a few hours to create four layouts! I was so inspired by the palette of this month’s main. I combine a subjective mood board to help you realize what colours will be most important in March :)

March mood board

I think that this combo is sooooo refreshing, I can almost smell the upcoming spring! My layouts will be also very springly in their mood… Today I will show you just two peaks of my two [Main Kit Only] projects – you will see what will appear soon in the Studio Calico shop!

spring 1

I am in love with these flowers!!! Yep, I put them everywhere!!!

Lindsey Letters :: monogram tutorial

As I mentioned you earlier, in my latest reveal post I had a pleasure to work with one of the newest letterpress plates – Lindsey Letters Letterpress plate & Craft Die set – Monogram Alpha (includes 1 plate with 27 designs and 1 matching die-cut).

DSC02506

I prepared an easy DIY tutorial :: handmade letterpressed Birthday Calendar. I will write you the step by step way how to create such b-day cards at home.

DSC02504

First of all we have to start with letterpress. I prepared twelve white cardboard pieces and sticked a piece of watercolour paper on them. Next I used different monogram letters to mark every single month in a year (J for January, F for February, etc.). The letterpressed effect is clearly visible (sorry if you don’t see it very good at the pictures).

DSC02513

When all letterpress monograms are totally dry (remember that this oil-based ink need a few minutes to get dry), we can start using watercolours. I used Peerless Watercolour Papers to cover the surface. First – I made a kind of palette to check out the shades of each colour. Next I was ready to paint.

DSC02518

Becasue letterpress inks are waterproof I could cover the letterpress area as well without any concerns. I you don’t have peerless watercolour papers at home you can use any other watercolour media like: custom watercolours, mists, woodless crayons, liquid inks, etc…

DSC02526

I painted all twelve cards and now I’m waiting till they will be completely dry…

DSC02528

Now – stamping part. I took one of the older Studio Calico exclusive stamps – daily grid. I stamped every card using black Archival ink pad.

DSC02536

I used my Precision Pen to write some imporatnt b-days and name’s days. Birthday cards are ready :) You can leave this part blank and give this blank cards set as a present. They will be actual for every year :)

I wish a great begining of this week. I know – nobody loves Mondays, but… give it a try, smile and start these seven days of a new week with joy :) XoXo

I forgot to add one more ‘Sugar Rush’ layout yesterday. I made it with ‘Sugar Rush’ scrapbook main kit and few supplies from the add-ons and printables – of course :) I was inspired by this amazing picture of my sleeping baby when he was really cute and my older layout (I love this composition so I re-used it once again).

sweet dreams

Once again in these reveal I painted some tiny flowers using Peerless Watercolour Papers. If you have any questions about this project please leave your comments below this post – it will be easier for me to answer and more people will get the message.

‘Sugar Rush’ reveal!!!

FEB-Reveal_Page_header

Don’t kid ourselves, February is not the prettiest month in a year… I don’t like it at all, but… Studio Calico February kits will make this month a special time! Sugar Rush kits are one of my favourites ever! There are so many beautiful pattern papers great for the LO background and to embellish the page, some of them are coming form he latest SC lines like ‘Lemon Lush‘, ‘Essentials‘ and ‘Wanderlust‘. Embellishments are soooooo delicious! I can’t wait, I have to share with you my projects. At the begining – tow main kit only layouts.

early days funny faces

I printed some of my favourites photos from the early days of my son’s life. At these photos above Jaś was only two week old (or even less). I compose two of them with the scraps of various pattern papers and exclusive kraft tags. I added pieces of sunburst washi tape and of course – my very favourite – printable labels and other designs.

funny1

When I combined then all together in a few layers I spread a little bit of gesso here and there on the paper (it was not a custom cardstock or watercolour paper, but B side of one of the patterned papers fom the min kit) and after everything was dry I started to paint watercolour ‘clouds’ and tiny, red flowers.

funny5

The inspiration came from the bedroom linen which were full of such lovely flowers. I used some stamps as well. I multiple the circles (use only first two circles from the whole stamp) and between them I made stiching ‘x’  – this is how I get those ‘xoxo’ words.

+     +     +

pink

I am in love with various shades of pink this month. I like to mix it with red and white… If you want to enrich your drawer with more PINK goodies click the photo above! I hope you will find something interesting. I already click ‘notify me’ button for a few times. I just feel that I need some of these pink beauties from ‘Essentials’ lines and not only.

+     +     +

smiles begin with you

The second Main Kit Only layout is totally different. The composition is much easier and there one, main element one this project – brush scripted ‘you & me’ words. February will be the month of Life|Scripted classes prepared by Kal Barteski. I adore her amazing style and I was so curious is it possible for me to compose such strong, bold element into my page. Well – I tried and I think thae result is not that bad :) It’s not perfect at all, I think we will all need a lot of practice to use these bamboo brushes and black paints to get simmilar effects to Kal (and probably we will never catch up the ‘top of this mountaint’), but it’s really great fun and one more, interesting techinique which can enrigh out scrapbooking projects. You still have two days to sign in to this class so… think about it :)

smiles3

Even if the title is really bold and huge it was still empty on my page. I was so tired and had no idea what to add to this project. Then my son remind me that one day I let him add some scribbles – the effect was amazing (I love this layout till nowadays), so I didn’t think much. I gave him a pencil, I took the second one and we started to draw funny doodles all over the main element.

+     +     +

be brave

This page was inspired by few things: lemons (they are coming from ‘Lemon Lush‘ line and amazing, totally FREE printables!) and this lovely stamp from one of the add-ons: ‘When life gives you lemons‘. Well – when I saw these everything was clear for me. The title had to be: ‘Be Brave’, becasue you know – then life really gives you lemons you have two options: you can get depressed or handle it and be brave! I chose the second option because it’s more optimistic :)

be brave4

I was so in love with all gold details in the scrapbook kit and add-ons! Especially in those gold-foil leaves… I found few places to stick amaizing gold pressed vellum and adorable stars from ‘Essentials’ line. And those gold foil ‘Lemon Lush‘ letters?! OMG! They are so inspiring!

+     +     +

yellow

If you are in love in YELLOW as much as I am I encourage you to visite this place to find more yellow beauties!!! Bring more sun into your projects! I definitely NEED more sun, I hate this winter, snowless weather now :/

+     +     +

be cool

And my last ‘Sugar Rush’ layout for today – ‘Be cOOl’ :) Ultra feminine, clear in colour but bold in the contrasts. Simple composition let me leave this page as clear as it possible. It’s not often happen to me to leave the project without watercolour areas (well – I made a few tine splashes, but it doeasn’t count ).

be cool1

I hope you like the projects and that you are ready to buy your own choices! These are the kits I used to complete my works.

When life bring you… embossing powder :)

It will be my first project where I used embossing technique. I was introduce to this topic many years ago and never tried. Why?! oh why I was waiting for so long to try?!! OK – this afternoon I decided to try to mix my favourite watercolour technique with the new one (new for me) – hot embossing. I prepared a step by step tutorial how I was working with these media. I had so much fun! Let’s start…

DSC02574

First of all I create a simple base of the project using new Studio Calico lines: ‘Lemon Lush‘ and ‘Wanderlust‘ (if you can’t find them in the shop, be sure to click a ‘notify me‘ button to be sure, that you will be inform when they will be in stock).

DSC02579

I collected some acrylic stamps which are coming from the older Studio Calico kits, clear embossing ink pad, white ZING embossing powder, Peerless Watercolour Papers , Ecolines and other ‘must have’ supplies.

DSC02580

I combined a half of the layout and the second part will be the topic of my today’s tutorial. I chose a few stamps in floral and flower shapes and created a simple composition with them – just next to the edge of the layered papers

DSC02582

I sticked them to the small acrylic block and than I stamped them using clear embossing ink (it was not very easy to find the shapes becasue they were really invisible).

DSC02583

Then I covered these invisible stamped shapes with a white embossing powder…

DSC02584

Next I took out the excess of the powder (I put it back to the jar)…

DSC02585

And I got such result (I hope it’s visible enough on the picture)…

DSC02588

I used a heat gun to make the marks pemanent and waterproof (yes, I know that all of you already know how to emboss, but there are some people like me who don;t know a lot about this technique) :)

DSC02589

I added more stamps, more leaves and flowers and repeated the pattern. It was the end of embossed part :) I had a lot fun making this! and I’m sure I will use it once again and again in my other projects!

DSC02596

Now – the funny part – watercolouring! I was showing and writting step by step instructions about how to use watercolour many times – so this time I will leave these pictures without any comment. If you have any questions you can ask me in the comments below.

DSC02599

I used Peerless Wartercolours Transparent Papers and liquid inks – Ecolines. This time I mixed more colours than usually… You can find here green, blue, yellow, orange, pink… Yep, I made a kind of mess this time and I really love it! It’s so refreshing! :)

DSC02601

When paitnted part was completely dry I made some random floral stamps  using various colours of chalk inks – just to add a kind of dimmension to this part. And it was the end of my work. Super fun, not super easy, but I’m sure that everybody can try to do something simmilar.

sweet as s'mores

I hope you will find a while during the upcoming weekend to try this mixed-media technique. I hope you will enjoy playing with these fabulous things as much as I had.
