‚Cirque’ senak peeks and a bunch of offers…

I’m back with a lot of informations directly from the Studio Calico club kit, shop, etc… and of course – with some new sneak peeks! Hmmm… where to start… maybe with sneaks? I know that this is your favourite part, so let’s do this. Last two days I was playing with my CT box full of ‚Cirque‚ goodies. Oh-my-lord! I am in love with them! It was so fun! I made three layout and a mini album and I still have lots of ideas so if time will let me – I won’t hesitate to use them!

Starting with the [main kit only] project… and next the mix with add-ons. The sneaks of mini album will be published in a special post on the ‚Sneak Peeks‚ message board at Studio Calico >>> HERE, soon.

Oh… I would like to show you the whole layouts right now! I can’t wait… I am really happy with them 🙂 The goodies from the kits made them, they just made my projects. If you want to check out more sneak peek photos please move >>> HERE.
An important information for this month is, that…

 Ok, now – February exclusive offer for subscribbersCool Copper‚ vellum paper pad!!! This 4×4 paper pad is just one reason we’re crazy about copper! We’ve added the lovely metallic hue to this perfect companion to your crafting. Each vellum page stands out with bold, stylish patterns you’ll love.

sneak offer

This exclusive offer is for subscribers only and will ship with your monthly subscription order with no additional shipping fees, no matter where you are! Available for a limited time while supplies last. This item qualifies for free shipping on its own. The cost of the Cool Copper Vellum Paper Pad will not count towards the free shipping threshold with the other items in your cart.

The second offer for subscribers (this offer is open for subscribers now, but it will be available soon for all of us, during reveal night). Not a subscriber? Join us for exclusive discounts and promotions. So what’s the deal? The preorder of new albums: 9×12 and 6×8!!!


I have to say that the Woodgrain 9×12 album stole my heart… Some important answers on your questions coppied directly from the Studio Calico blog…

Will the new albums bundle with kits? No, we want to get these out the door to you sooner than bundling with February’s kits!Albums are scheduled to arrive by the end of next week and we will ship albums out upon their arrival. The albums and shipping charge per album are as follows:

  • Domestic shipping for the 9×12 Album – $29.99 ($31.99 for leather)+ $4 per album shipping fee
  • International shipping for 9×12 Album – $29.99 ($31.99 for leather) + $9 per album shipping fee
  • Domestic 6×8 Handbook – $19.99 + $4 per album shipping fee
  • International 6×8 Handbook – $19.99 + $9 per album shipping fee

Is there a quantity limit to purchase? Nope! Pre-order as many as you ‚d like! Just remember, there will be a small shipping fee for each album ordered.

Will these work like typical preorders? Yep! To preorder pages, just click on the preorder button, and that automatically completes your order (your card will be charged for the album, but the shipping fee will be applied to your order when they actually ship)! If for example you would like five albums, you will just need to click preorder (for the albums you want) 5 separate times, and 5 separate orders are then placed. So if you click it only once, an order is automatically created, so keep this in mind while you’re shopping for your albums.

Of course we shouldn’t forget about page protectors for the albums and handbooks. Multi-pack page protectors ship FREE with your album preorder! As a result of Studio Calico awesome customer inquiries, they decided to put up the multipack of the page protectors (individuals will be available for sale during the Reveal period) with album preorder. SC wanted to put more of them up for sale, but simply didn’t have time and we wanted to be assured of the exact count. The 9×12 multipack will be available here and the 6×8 multipack available here.

And the very last thing for today. New subscriber great offer! If you read all these previous exclusive offers for subscribers only and you are NOT a Studio Calico subscribber yet, but now you WANT to be a subscribber – this paragraph is just made for YOU 🙂


Start a NEW subscription for only $5!!! What a great deal!!! BTW – if you still don’t have your ‚Far, far away‚ kit it can be the best offer ever for you. On my blog you can find some inspirations made with these kits. I also published From start to finish‚ tutorial made with scrapbook main kit and in a few days I will post a second tutorial made with ‚Far, far Away’ add-ons! (which are still available by the way… if you can please think about ‚Magic Carpet‚ – one of my favourites with THREE silk screens inside!).


‚Park Ave.’ sneak peeks.

It will be an extraordinary December at Studio Calico. You won’t find any typical, christmassy supplies, no ‚very merry’ colours and any ‚holly jolly’  things, oh… ok, maybe some, somewhere in the add-ons. Instead of them there are lots of juicy colours, vivid embellishments and flowers! So excited!

Here are some of my sneaks. If you are interested in other creative team peeks check out the official Studio Calico sneak peek site >>>> HERE.

November sneak afternoon.

I can finally share some sneaks with you guys, I know that it’s late but you are curious anyway, aren’t you? November ‚Walden’ kits continue this outstanding autumn feeling which we could observe at Studio Calico during last months. Shades are little bit different, there are more pastel tones than in previous kits, some favourite leaves and my favourite – exclusive embellishments, plenty of exclusive embellishments!

November mood board

[all the photos and pictures are coming from my Pinterest boards]

My subjective view on these kits looks like this mood board (I definitely used too much orange, but I think it looks nice, even if you won’t find so many orange shades in ‚Walden’). For me November will be the month of art-journaling becasue of amazing Paint.Plan.Play classes leading by Ashley Goldberg with such remarkable contributor like Katie Licht. It will be the month of story telling as well! Shanna’s Gratitude|Documented class and the long-awaited Celine’s Mini Book ones will add a story-teller feeling to the next month’s projects. I tried to incorporate all of these things to my layoutsand here are the first sneaks made with ‚Walden’ scrapbook main kit:

and this little sneak based on ‚Concord‚ scapbook add-on combined especially for Celine’s mini book classes with some characteristic elements from her own projects. Great mix of exclusives and brand new Crate Paper products – definitelly my fav. this month!

Don’t forget about this month’s offers for subscribers and new Studio Calico fans! Everything you can find >>> HERE. Off to work. See ya!


‚Underground’ sneaks!

We are oficically welcome fall with October ‚Underground’ Studio Calico kits. This is serious – I stuck among  the autumnal photographs I made previous years. I had to use something old because in Poland we still have a summer weather and I really wanted to create something seasonal this time.

Starting with my monthly subjective mood board (once again – all the pictures are coming from my Pinterest boards).

Octobrrrr mood board

I felt so inspired by these autumn colours that my wish was to create something with lots of fall leaves, gold and dark green shades… it’s only few days till reveal so I won;t be writing a lot about it now. I just past few sneaks – all of them are in the autumn mood, but I also made something typical summerish.

One more thing – this month’s exclusive offer for SC subscribers is really fab! I’ve already preordered these transparent cards and waiting for them impantiently 🙂


Clearly, this is just what you’ve been looking for. We all need is a little more adventure in our lives, and this paper pad full of bright gold and bold white graphics on transparent sheets suits our fancy. The beautiful, large gold and white lettering paired with unique contrasting graphic designs in this Clearly Awesome Transparency Pad make for the perfect combination, and its 4×6″ size makes it a worthwhile choice for most any project. We hope you agree that it’s the obvious choice to add that extra touch of luxury to your projects. Craft in style. And stay golden.


Start the party before the ‚Sandlot’ reveal!

It’s almost reveal over at Studio Calico so that means – that we can start shopping!!! This is an amazing opportunity to minimalize the shipping costs. As an international subscriber I have to care about that and I am so grateful that I can combine my shopping with kits few 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 🙂

+     +     +

Month by month I’m preparing set of my favourite products. In August we have some fabulous stamp sets in the kits and add-ons so once again it would be nice to enrich our collection of embossing powders. As you already know this time I created few layouts and mini album as well (with amazing ‚JET’ scrapbook add-on combined by Marcy). Thinking about mini album – this set of stamps and craft dies, precision markers and tiny 4×4 album are just made for August – you will see.

august selection

1. So first of all – We R Memory Keepers 4×4 album – it’s soooo cute and tiny! Perfect for all road travels, vacation or just to collect Instagram memories from the summer party. Absolutely ‚must have’ in my opinion. Now you can find this treasure in 5 colours at the SC shop! Don’t wait any longer!

2. Craft dies & Stamp set – TABS designed by Marcy Penner – keep tabs on your favorite projects with this Tab Stamp and Die set!!! Perfect for mini album, ideal for PL scrappers and finally – great arranger for your workspace.

3. Project Life Black journaling pens – I can’t imagine any mini book, or PL spread or even scrapbook page without a piece of journaling – these thin markers are the best. You should have such base set in your drawer, always.

4. Craft Die FRIEND – it looks awesome. That’s all 🙂 I just feel that I need it to my mini projects and to feel the tiny WAMK 4×4 album, so I share this inspiration with you now. Decision is yours.

5. Collection of new ZINK embossing powder shades – the selection of my choice for August.

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).

Few times in this post I mentioned about Marcy Penner – well it will be definitely her month at Studio Calico. This amazing, inspiring and one of the kindest person in our creative team prepared for you many things – amoung them – new class WORKSPACE.



  • 8 lessons that will walk you through the process of assessing your space & storage, your stash, and how you use it so that you can organize (and maintain) your workspace in a way that works for you.
  • Bonus lessons sharing ideas for finding vintage pieces for storage, repurposed and recycled storage ideas, creating an inspiration board, starting fresh in a new space, and identifying & tackling your „hot spot” problem areas.
  • A class message board where you can interact with your teachers, and get encouragement and support from the teachers and your fellow students as you go through the process of perfecting your workspace.

2 Workspace Wednesday

This is my ‚workspace’ – as you can see there isn’t a lot of place… this is also my badroom and dining room and I HATE that I have to clean up everything just after I finish my work. But I have no choice. I usually don’t remember where I put something what is needed immediately, to be true – there is always a ‚creative mess’ in my drawers and on the shelves. That’s why the WORKSPACE classes by Marcy is a great opportunity for me to learn how to keep these tiny stash in the proper order. If you also have such problems in your craftroom this is something for you and you can’t missed it for sure.

Workspace is enrolling now through July 31st at 11:59pm EST. It’s only few days till the end of registation! The first lesson will be posted on Monday, August 4th, and there will be a new lesson posted each Monday and Thursday in August.


‚Penny Arcade’ sneak peek time!

I just came back from my short vacation and opened Studio Calico box filled with July kits! It tooks me one day to create all my ‚Penny Arcade‚ pages and it was sooooooo fun! When I saw all these goodies I couldn’t resist – I had to start. I printed my new photos from the the seaside (right – vacation were short, but I made few hundred photos there ahahha) and combine some projects. Today I want to share some of my sneaks with you.

July mood board

[all these photos ar coming from my Pinterest boards]

For a good begining – my traditional subjective mood board. Once again the main topics are: summer, vacation, outdoors, sweet colours and fresh fruits. I include some of Ashley Goldberg’s patterns in this inspirational board because in this month’s kits you will find pretty much of her designs!


This is my [main kit only] sneak made with Ashley’s designs – this is one of my favourites papers in July! If you want to know Ashley better, you can find her in many places these days. From Urban Outfitters to her shop on Etsy. Check out these places to wait even more impantiently for the kits than usually!


Penny Arcade‚ kits and add-ons are full of great embellishments. Really – this month is fullfill with fabulous stickers and exclusives. I have to mention about amazing stamps as well – btw, the world map stamp designed by Amy Tangerine is divine and so inspiring!

+     +     +

Month by month during sneak night, Studio Calico prepare an exclusive, special offer for their subbscribers (I am a Project Life subscriber and I am always in love with these promotions). In July all the subbers have an opportunity to preorder this fabulous set of mini mists!


Achieve your favorite Sunkissed self when you visit Mr. Huey’s Oceanfront. The local Banana Stand carries Guacamole and Guava that are simply to die for, we promise you won’t be disappointed here!

This exclusive offer is for subscribers only and will ship with your monthly subscription order with no additional shipping fees, no matter where you are! Available for a limited time while supplies last. This item qualifies for free shipping on its own. The cost of the mini kit will not count towards the free shipping threshold with the other items in your cart.

I already used these mists to paint and draw some fancy things on my July’s projects! I use them as a custom liquid watercolours and like vibrant inks – I love to use various nibs to draw. I encourage you to order these fabulous colours to fullfill your artistic drawer!

+     +     +


Coming back to the traditional, vacation palette in marine mood – probably one of my favourites. ‚Penny Arcade’ also include some of such items! Oh my! How I love the July kits!!! I could write about them during all day! Yep, I know – it’s not the point to write about it, it’s better to make more pages ahahha, promise! I will make more than four this month! You have my word.

+     +     +

Usually I prepare a set of my favourite things just before the reveal, but now I want to be sure that all of these supplies are available in Studio Calico shop. I find them so great for this month. I’m sure they will be a great addition to your July’s kits 🙂

July's favourites

I chose some things which I find inspiring and handy for vacation time. I was thinking about ‚Penny Arcade’ kits and travel journals – I love making mini books with my summer photos!

1. I think that these two craft dies: ‚hello‚ and ‚hooray‚ will be great for summer projects. You can cut some samples at home and take them for your travel. Great addition to the projects.

2. Fruits – of course! Summer without yummy fruits doesn’t count! South of Market Printed Chipboards are fabulous!

3. Marine trend – classy. Among Color Theory line we find lots of navy/red/white supplies. I chose marine set of Color Theory Ink Pads and set of Mini Alphas.

4. Quick Stick – this handy tool is ‚must have’ for travel! Need a tool that allows for easy handling of hard to pick up, small pieces? With the this tool use one end to poke out or place items and use the other to effortlessly pick pieces up.

5. Alpha Stamp Set – this is the latest Studio Calico BOMB! I love these letters, I love the idea of various sizes and classy fonts. Great for summer and any other season of the year (I already see my 2o14 December Daily with them!).

6. And last SC shop items from studio selections – Open Road 12×12 Chipboard shapes! Pay tribute to your favorite road trip, vacation or weekend getaway with this Open Road chipboard set! You will be inspired to explore the 66 for another weekend trip after working with this one!  – this is an official description of this product, but I totally agree with it 🙂 My summer album will be fill with these tiny, gorgeous goodies.

+     +     +

So – these are my this month’s faves and some sneaks. I will be posting other sneaks on my Instagram and at Studio Calico. See you there guys!
