@ New Orleans Jazzfest
I used products from my September Studio Calico kit to make this layout. I first misted the base patterned paper with white Mister Huey where I wanted to do all of my layering. I cut apart our initials as well as the arrow from the very cool Jenni Bowlin stencil page and backed it with some patterned paper. I used the map piece of paper that has where I live in Arkansas poking out at the top above the photo. I used a couple of diecuts that I had previously cut from my Silhouette Cameo (the yellow bursts) and actually got some of my punches out and used them - my first punch ever, the Martha Stewart butterfly, the heart punched from the aqua cardstock, and even a border punch which I used on the red patterned paper. I also added some SC wooden veneer asterisks which I have been hoarding since I don't have very many left and they don't make them anymore. When I first got my kit this month, I didn't think I'd like the Amy Tangerine vinyl letters, but once I started using them I found they were the perfect size for my titles and a great font and I've just about used them all up!
You just never know until you try something if they are really your style or not!! That's what I love about Studio Calico kits - I get things that I normally wouldn't purchase myself and I use them because they coordinate so well with everything else in the kits and more often than not I like them!
Thanks so much for looking!! Have a great day!! :)
