Studio Calico curates beautiful kits each month. However, when I had a monthly subscription, I never used up all the papers and embellishments before wanting other stuff. I also ended up buying A LOT of extra stuff — I literally have every Mr. Huey’s color — so that I wouldn’t have to spring for shipping. Eventually I had to cancel my monthly subscription.
But I still love the style they promote and their products. After seeing the pink ombre washi tape in an Amy Tan spread, I knew I had to have it. First, I tried finding the roll but apparently, some of Studio Calico’s stuff is limited edition and most people who were selling, were offering one or two yards for 4 bucks. I bit the bullet and bought the whole Outer Banks kit. In a testament to how much I love this washi tape, I also paid for shipping. Ridiculous but TOTALLY worth it. I’ve basically added it all over the place today. For example:
I have tons of washi and I think it’s fair to say that this one is my absolute favorite. I’m looking at my craft desk as I’m typing this… I have to pair this washi with some turquoise grosgrain ribbon. It’ll be amazing!
Other product I’m loving is the “Kraft” edition kit for Project Life. Project Life came out at some select Michael’s on Friday. The Kraft edition has been sold out online for weeks now so I was thrilled that I could get one at Michael’s and use a 40% coupon. I also really like the Midnight edition but between the two, the Kraft edition is more in sync with the rest of my current book. I’ve been doing Project Life since last September making my own cards. This set really makes it a lot easier to fill out a spread but I really enjoy creating unique cards for every event. They’ll be awesome though for books I make as gifts or vacation books.
On a completely different tangent, I picked up a pound of Angelcots this morning at Trader Joes. I have already eaten four of them. They’re AMAZING! I love Sundays!
