Despite the fact that I haven’t had much interest in scrapbooking lately, these Studio Calico kits were just too good to let sit in a box and wait for my mojo to make a comeback! Somehow I managed to eke out a few layouts using the July and August kits, as you can see here:

Midway. Made using the Mind the Gap kit, my new “Right/Wrong” stamp from Border’s clearance (RIP Borders), a ticket, Washi tape, and a binder clip.

California Comes to Utah. More Mind the Gap, Washi tapes, a Smash journaling card, tickets, and journaling post-its also from Border’s clearance sale.

Park City. Mind the Gap, Washi tapes, and another journaling post-it. I also used one of my favorite techniques: incorporating paper strips and packaging into my layouts. Barcodes are fun! Wheeeee!

Strawberry Days. Made with the Boardwalk kit, more packaging and paper strips (LOVE BasicGrey’s floral packaging!), Washi tape, Mr. Huey spray in Bluegrass, a Studio Calico pink map sticker, and folded kraft paper (which was what the kit was packaged in – recycle, reuse, reduce!). Oh, and of course I used my typewriter, which seems to be a little out of alignment, but I think that’s part of the fun!

Weekending with Mom. More of the Boardwalk kit, red and white tissue paper from Anthro, a doily, Washi tapes, stickers from October Afternoon and Studio Calico, white Maya Mist, a Smash journaling card, a vintage flashcard, and a little kraft flower I made using the Cuttlebug.
Plus One. And finally, more of the Boardwalk kit (which by the way, is my favorite kit so far!), Washi tapes, OA stickers, a glassine envelope, Maya Mist in white, a ticket, and…an XO card from my new Etsy shop! I only listed one thing so far, but I have lots of “inventory” to add once I get around to taking photos and listing. So excited to be back in the Etsy game! Also, this was probably the worst way to introduce my new shop since nobody actually “reads” blogs, but it’s past my bedtime and I’m no longer thinking clearly! Hence the run-on sentence! HA!
