Fairground is the Studio Calico July kit. The prices have increased, the kit costs $34.99 (up by $5), and I also purchased the Carousel embellishment kit for a promotional price of $11.69.
Notes: The only things I loved in the main kit were the yellow paper (the B side of the one with all the squares) and the stamp set. In the add on, I loved the chipboard hearts and the stamp. I liked most of the rest. I disliked the clock acrylic shapes in the add on and the floral transparency in the main -but I love how I ended up using them.
I made 14 layouts with this kit (10 12″x12″, 3 8.5″x11″ and 1 9″x12″), for a total of $46.68, or $3.33/page. I supplemented it with some card stock from my stash, some hybrid papers (printed out from digital), stamps, and the odd embellishment.
Here are the bits and pieces I have left:
Leftovers: a good chunk of the green paper with crosses, most of the flower transparency (not my favorite), a couple of pieces of the yellow dot paper (my favorite this month!), some alpha stickers (hard to make words with what’s left), some chipboard hearts (love them!) and silver foiled perforated words, most of the washi tape strips (am having a hard time using them), a clip, a few acrylic clock shapes and a few animals (I combined the acrylic shapes in the scrapbook and Project Life kits).
Kill my Studio Calico kit is a monthly series I started on my blog to hold myself accountable and use up my kits. My goal is to use up a kit before the next one arrives.
