All of us at Studio Calico would like to wish you a very Happy (inter)National Scrapbook (and Project Life and Card) Day! We are hoping that all types of paper crafters will help celebrate with us. The Scrapbook Team, Project Life Team and Card Team have come up with some fun challenges and the best part is you have a week to participate!
All of the details can be found HERE on the Studio Calico Blog. And the best part is no matter what type of paper crafter you are you can participate in all of the challenges:) Make a card for a challenge by the Scrapbbok Team or a Scrap Page for one of the Card Team challenges, etc. -whatever works for you!
Here are two cards I made for two of the challenges:
Numbers are always a fun element to add to a project and when I saw this challenge I knew it was the perfect opportunity to make a very special card. My youngest daughter will be celebrating her birthday in just a few short days and what 6 year old girl wouldn’t want a sparkly number to mark the occasion? I die cut the number 6 then created a banner for it to hang on using some pattern paper and 2 of the super cute Amy Tan ribbon paper clips (I just removed the clips and used the fabric). I attached it to a PL Journaling card from the Halley’s Comet Add on, and then I couldn’t resist using the Studio Calico Roller Date Stamp to mark this special event. To finish it off I reached into my stash of letters and found these ones from Simple Stories SNAP line were the perfect match. Finally for once I won't be scrambling last minute to make her a birthday card :)
And the second card is for the Card Team Challenge #1 | mask it off
I love having fun with the Studio Calico masks and Mr. Huey’s Mists so I knew this would be a great challenge for me to find a different way to use one of my favourite masks. I started with a plain piece of white card, my V-Pattern Mask, some ink and a brayer. I laid the mask down on the paper and used a little bit of repositionable tape to hold it in place, then inked up my brayer really well and rolled it over the mask. I did this several times and then I removed the masked and lightly brayered a few more times over the paper to add some soft colour and contrast. Once I had my background completed I added some fun elements and stamps from the May Project Life add on Kit – Halley’s Comet.
I do hope you will get the chance to join us and be sure to stop by the Member Gallery -the inspiration there is always amazing!
