Sweet Valley Studio Calico reveal!

It’s reveal time!!! This time I grabbed a lot of stamps and Project Life cards in beautiful PL boxes design by Studio Calico! I ordered ‚Valley High’ Scrapbook Main Kit, ‚Vally High’ Project Life Main Kit, ‚Matthew’ scrapbook add-on1, ‚Jennifer’ scrapbook add-on2, ‚Molly’ scrapbook add-on3 and ‚You & Me’ Stamp Set PL add-on. You can also buy ‚Valley High’ Card Kit, ‚Corey’ card add-on and ‚Winona’ PL add-on.

Here are my projects for this month. Starting from my favourite: ‚My BIG adventure’

Big Adventure

I made this layout with my son and we are totally in love with such work together! I prepared a base and combined a simple composition with some rays and awesome transparent PL card from the Project Life Main Kit. You can also find a new great emebellishment – transparent, acrylic airplane (I love it!). When all main elements were sticked to the background my sweet Jaś start drawing these cute little airplanes and clouds above the main composition. Next we both added some cuted printable speechbubbles and other embellishments: buttons, sequins, washi tape and of course his favourites – stamps.

real life

This is truly adorable – I love this picture! When I received this month’s kits I was sure that I will use this photo on the layout. I use lovely backround and combine some layers in the centre of my project. You can find here some printables, stickers, buttons, brads, sequins and other embellishments. I adore these palette. Such colours make me smile everyday 🙂

there is

This is my Main Kit Only ‚Valley High’ layout combined only with a piece of papers and amazing corck letters from the Scrapbook kit. I covered this alphabet using gesso and construck a kind of texture in the background. A texture with a meaning, with a sentence: „There is something good in every day”. I also cuted a word ‚HELLO’ from the exclusive paper and some printables. The rest is just only a few watercolour and mist splashes and pencil doodles…

I like being alone

This is truth – I like being alone with myself, sometimes I think that I like it too much… but everybody have such moments when best companion is just a fresh air, blue sky and singing birds. I adore such moments amoung the nature. This is very feminine page, with a lot of pale, pastel colours and flowers. This fake palette helps me to keep the mood of my personality here. You won’t find a lot of elements here and difficult composition. Everything is simple and really not complicated – the same as these moments spent with nature.

you are not lost

I tried to be as much masculine as I can – that’s why I chose black & white palette with a pops of yellow neon (from mini Mister Huey’s mists). I created a lot of circle layers from stamps, cuted printables, stickers, SC labels, brads and splashes. I coloured white alphas in a ‚lost’ word using yellow neon mist and it looks gorgeous. I think that you can colour these letter with any colour you want! This is fantastic! I also stamped a margin using one of the ledger stamps from the Valley High kits.

NEON is for summer!

Hi everybody, this is my day on entreARTistes and I am so happy that we can meet >>> THERE!!!  When the weather is hot and all pastel, springly colours are gone the necessity of vibrant palette is growing. I decided to show you how you can use the neon, trendy shades on your layouts. I collected some bright yellows, pinks and cyans from various Studio Calico collections, and prepared a simple white cardstock as a base of my project.

Aujourd’hui, je suis votre hôte sur le blog Actu d’entreARTistes et ravie d’être là avec vous! Alors que l’Eté arrive tout doucement et que les couleurs pastels font doucement place aux couleurs flashys, j’avais envid de m’amuser avec des couleurs Neon, très à la mode ces temps-ci. J’ai donc choisi de m’amsuser avec les Mr Huey Neon de Studio Calico et j’ai préparé cette page pour vous!

Dear Lizzy Vellum…

Let’s get rest a little bit with all these ‘media’ topics :)  Make a little break and talk about vellum. In the latest ‘Lucky Charm‘ line we have a few different patterns and colours printed on the vellum. I think it’s not obvious for all of us how to use them, so I decided to show you one of the possibilities of using ‘Lucky Charm’ vellum on your page.



For today’s layout I choose a vellum with green chevron pattern. I really adore this colour so I choose a white background to bring out the awesomeness of this product.  cut a square piece of vellum and create a few rays – this will be my backround. Because the pattern is rather bold we have to suit the rest of a composition to this element.



I used only tiny emebellishments, rub-ons and stickers here. The only major part of a composition is a topic with this adorable Eiffla Tower used instead of the letter ‘A’. It’s all about the colour of Paris in April – spring in Tuileries Gardens is really beautiful! A lot of luscious green and pink blooking trees, awww! Amazing landscape. I just tried to grab a little bit of that mood…


It’s all for today. I am so curious what is your idea for using patterned vellum on the layout! To be true – I wrote this article in the end of February or in the begining of March – I don’t remember, so it’s possible that some information can be outdated, so sorry. For sure we have a warm summer not the begining of spring – but even that I adore these photos. Paris is always a good idea for sure! Have a nice day.


Summer break…

… no, not yet 🙂 I am still waiting for my vacation. But I still have a lot of pictures from the previous summer breaks spent at the seaside, and Studio Calico Atlantic‚ collection is a dreamy line to use it here! So I made another project using ‚Atlantic‚ (and not only) goodies.
