I was honored to be asked to design some projects for Studio Calico's booth at CHA and even more excited when I found out I'd be using products from their new Memoir line. Um, teal + orange + green? Yes, please! And here are the projects I created:
I couldn't decide which of the fabulous papers to use first, so this page incorporates several of the patterns (and the woodgrain is a stamp from the My Happy set.) I cut them out with my trusty circle cutter and topped them with various embellishments from the line like chipboard buttons, flowers, and clouds. I also used a few stamped images - the herringbone border, the hearts, and the "love" sentiment - as embellishments, too.
The "1" tag is layered over two other tags to form the streamers of the ribbon. And how perfect are these shades of teal and green for a swimming page?!
My last project was a simple card using the circle and bird stamps from the My Happy set. I also used the Herringbone 4x6 background with charcoal ink to create a base for my colored circles. The chipboard flowers layered over the coordinating pattern paper add a subtle bit of texture and dimension:
And now for the REALLY exciting part....to celebrate the release of their new lines, Studio Calico is giving away my choice of product to one of my readers. I've chosen the My Happy stamp set because it's so versatile - I used it in all three projects above! If you'd like to win a set of your very own, just comment on this post (and please make sure to sign in with an email where I can contact you!) I'll keep comments open until Wednesday morning, at which time I'll post the winner.**
And be sure to stop by the Studio Calico blog for a list of other designers who will be participating in the blog blitz - you won't want to miss seeing some of the other fabulous projects that were in the CHA booth!
**Studio Calico will be shipping the stamps directly to the winner. Because it's a brand new product, The My Happy stamp set might not be in stock for immediate shipment, but will be mailed to the winner as soon as they become available!
