Homespun Documenter – Main Kit Only

I have tons of pages to share made with the Homespun kits from Studio Calico. But truly.. the Documenter kit and add ons were all so good!! I had purposefully held back in documenting my January, and was able to get caught up easily with all these new products. Today, I am sharing what I made with the Documenter main kit only.

This kit stretches pretty far!

I loved all the pink in the kit, but since I know not everyone is a fan, I decided to avoid pink in this main kit spread, so I chose teal and red as my main colors, with some black.

The silver foil on the card I used for the title is so pretty! I did some creative use of the alphabet letters – since there was only one “w”, I used the “n”s instead.

I used those pretty kraft labels with silver foil accents throughout the spread as a cohesive accent.

I love how the gray rubber word pops against this red card! Oh and a PSA – use staples to attach these rubber pieces, it looks like glue dots have a messy reaction, while staples work great.

I loved the card that said “good times”, but it had a bit too much white space, so I cut out the circle and layered it on top of the woodgrain card, and added my journaling around it. I also used the hang from the stamp set to turn the circle into a framed piece.

There is a lovely set of kraft labels with silver foil in the kit, and I decided to use the leftover backing as a background for this card. Since I like to use up my scraps, I backed it with a couple of pieces I had left over from cutting some cards. I love how it turned out!

The rubber pieces in the kit are adorable as is, but you can stretch them even further by using them as a stencil. Here, I used some Studio Calico mist to spray over the word in red.

I loved the “boss” card in the kit, but it was too black for my taste, so I just cut out the sentiment and layered it on top of another card. I also cut apart the black card and layered it on top of the other one.

The silkscreen that comes in the kit is so much fun! Seriously.. so pretty! I used it a few times here with black paint – it’s so easy to customize your cards! As part of the kit, you can also pick a color of paint out of three options. Here, I used black to stick to my color scheme.

The stamp set is really cute and versatile – I used it throughout the spread, and here as well.

Homespun Documenter Kit, Add-Ons and Dies

This is my third Project Life spread with the Homespun release from Studio Calico, and probably my favorite of the three. 🙂

For this spread I used the Documenter main kit, the Pocket add on, the “on the menu” stamp, the Easter cards, one of the card dies, and the 6×6 paper pad. Oh and I did some foiling with the Minc too! 🙂

I spent all the week at home recuperating from my surgery (see prior week here) so all the photos are from around the house.

And of course, lots of food photos – love food! 🙂

This was the week I made my firsts experiments with foiling, and I was so giddy about it that I had to document that in my album.

The Easter cards were perfect to document my love for bunnies! 🙂 I have a few things around the house that I happened to photograph that week. And the wood veneer letters from the Pocket add on are gorgeous!

I used the polka dot die on a piece of foiled card stock. The die is 2″x3″ and fit snugly in the pocket – there are three more of these card making dies in the Homespun releases and I think they work great for Project Life! You can check the other ones out here: stripes, zig zag and plus signs.

I used the puffy stickers from the Pocket add on and the “on the menu” stamp here and throughout this spread.
