Hello and welcome back for another month of Kill My Studio Calico Kit! This is the 8th installment of this series, and in total I have made a whopping (103) layouts. Yay me!
This month I got the Studio Calico scrapbook main kit, Savannah ($34.99 -but I bought it on sale for $17, stamp excluded).
Notes: at first glance I didn’t love the kit papers as much as other ones, because of the softer colors; my favorite is the floral black and white paper that is on the back of the red gingham one. I love the puffy alpha stickers, the enamel dots, and the stickers.
Kill my Studio Calico kit is a monthly series I started on my blog to hold myself accountable and use up my kits. You can subscribe to the Studio Calico Scrapbook kit here.
I made 9 layouts (3 12″x12″, 2 8.5″x11″) and a mini book, for a total of $17, or $1.7/page (counting the album as a single page). I supplemented the kit with some embellishments from the Project Life and Planner kits, plus some items from my stash (stamps, washi tape, white cardstock, and the odd embellishment). Here’s a roundup of all the pages I made:
And here is what I have left:
Leftovers: I am hoarding the last piece of the floral paper that I love. 🙂 I didn’t use the pink cardstock – I have a hard time with that color for a background.
And here is what I made with the kit. This month, I used a bit more stuff from my stash than I normally do. Here’s a roundup of all the projects I made:
And here they are, one by one.
The sewing of the paper ended up being a bit wonky, but I went with it.
This page is to document my latest obsession: washi tapes! These are all tapes I purchased recently from Amazon, and I laid them out to see what they looked like (you can see them here). Since they looked so pretty all together, I decided to make a page about this obsession of mine. 🙂 Here are the links to the washi tapes I bought in case you are interested. 🙂 I also used some more of the puffy stickers by Crate Paper, along with some past stamps from the Project Life kits.
This one is probably my favorite photo ever of my mom and me, and I paired it with my favorite paper from this kit. I also used some embellishments from the Savannah Documenter kit here.
The sticker sheet included in the kit goes a long way! I used it to build a frame for my photo on this page.
I also made a mini book in traveler’s notebook format using the papers from this kit.
See more pages from this album, including a video walk through, here.
The houses are an old stamp (from the Daily Grind add on) – they were just perfect for these photos.
The washi tape is from the Savannah planner kit (love!), the stamps are from the Annette add on, and the embellishments are from the Finch add on.
This is my favorite page made with the Savannah kit. I chose a few snapshots representing a few things we did this month, turned them black&white, and paired them with my favorite paper of this kit. The “making” title came about because I was trying to spell out words with the leftover alpha letters, and this worked. 🙂 The heart stickers are from the Savannah Project Life kit, while the cork embellishments are from my stash.
And that’s it for this month. If you have any questions, please leave a comment and let me know!
