Project Life : Studio Calico Marks & Co August Kits

The August kits are now available at Studio Calico, and they are gorgeous! 

Here is the project life main kit.  You can purchase it here.

I also used the Scrapbook Main Kit. You can find it here.

And the Woolf Add On here.

And the Project Life Steinbeck Add On here.

And here are the layouts I made with these kits:

Project Life Week 29 using the Main Kit only. How gorgeous are those Kal Barteski stamps? I love them!

And I put together one beach insert from our beach trip a few weeks ago.  I also love that Cork alpha in the kits. I wish I had a lot more of it, it's such a great size and such a versatile color that I could see myself using it on most layouts. I also did a lot of stitching on this insert.  Who knew that stitching on paper would be so therapeutic?

A Peek Inside my Craft Room : Project Life Organization

I recently did a pretty complete overhaul of my craft space.  I painted an old cabinet that I have had forever, and rearranged almost everything.  Here's the end result.  I still have a few things that I would like to do, including get a new table that's not a folding table, buy some curtains, and hang some art or pictures on the wall.

I've tried to label the pictures showing what I store in each space if it's not readily apparent. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to leave me a comment and I'll get those answered.

Studio Calico Handbook using Thataway : Walt Disney World

I had the opportunity to work with the new and awesome Studio Calico Thataway line.  It's great for travel albums, and will be available in August.

I used the collection to put together a few handbook pages of our Disney World trip this past April.

You can check out the Studio Calico blog post here.  And you can find the collection here.

And here are a few of the pages I made:

Craft Room Reorganization: Project Life Organization

I bit the bullet the week of the Fourth of July and completely reorganized my craft room.  I pained an old cabinet that I'd had for years, banished the toys to the other side of the room, and reorganized pretty much everything.  Here's a peek at what it looks like now (ignore the junk in the foyer, I haven't had time to tackle that quite yet).

More pictures coming soon.

Project Life: Studio Calico Valley High

I loved working with the SC Valley High kits this month.  Look how gorgeous the main kit is. 

You can purchase the July kits here.

I also used these:

Jennifer: with the oh so fabulous ikat stamp.  I've never been a big stamper, but SC is converting me with these awesome stamps.

 Corey:  I LOVE the papers in this add-on. Aren't they awesome?


And this fabulous Project Life Stamp Set designed by the one and only Lilli Niclass.  I love everything she does. 

I also picked up more grid cards, which can be used for a variety of things. You can find them here.

Here are my layouts with the kits:
