SC Inspires Blog Hop

Welcome to the Studio Calico Inspires blog hop!  Today I wanted to take a minute and share with you how SC inspires me.  I also just *might* have an awesome giveaway at the end of this post!

As some of you know, I'm part of the Studio Calico Creative Team.  Specifically, I'm on the Card Team, but my love for SC products don't stop there.  I actually subscribe to the Project Life kits & have for quite some time.  They coordinate perfectly with the Card Kits & allow me to really stretch my supplies and create some fun projects each month.
I would consider myself a "dabbler."  Although I love making cards, I also really enjoy crafting in all aspects.  I love making home decor pieces, gifts, wearable art, etc. out of papercrafting/scrapbooking supplies.  And, although I'm not a traditional (weekly) "Project Lifer", I love using pocket pages to document trips, events, & everyday life with my family.

The Project Life kit is perfect for someone like me because with this kit, you can do it all!  The journaling cards work really well as focal points on greeting cards.  The PL kits also always come with amazing embellishments.  The copper rub-ons in October's kit were just the thing to dress up the bottom of this card.
Sometimes the cards are so amazing that I just pull them from my kits & hang them on my fridge or in my craft room for inspiration.  I found this tiny frame at the dollar store & added one of the 3x4 cards from the Underground PL kit to it.  Voila!  Instant home decor! (Isn't that printed masking tape pure PERFECTION?!?  I want to use it on everything!)
The thing I love most about Studio Calico is that they are always pushing the boundaries to create new & innovative products.  That's what inspires me like none other.  And, I've found that having fresh products each month really helps the creativity flow.

I filled this little jar with fall scented potpourri & applied one of the rub-ons from the PL kit to the front.  And... of course, I can't put that masking tape down.  It's just perfect for everything!
And now... are you ready for some fun?  Let's start with this FREE PRINTABLE that's available for download right now!  Click Here to get yours!

Ashley G Screen Print Tutorial

Do you remember the Ashley Goldberg screen print I mentioned in my previous post? Well... today I had a chance to play with it & I think this little project turned out so cute!

If you've never tried them, it's SUPER easy. It's so easy, in fact, that it only takes ~10 seconds to demonstrate.  Check it out!

I just used some watercolors that I had on hand, but acrylics work great too.  I found this frame at Wal-mart for under $3, so these make very inexpensive gifts (but look like you spent much more on them!)  I hope you give them a try!
