34th street is live at studio calico! and on top of that, three of the four add-ons are still available - including one of my personal faves, penn station. the open me stamp has been added to my gift wrap plans for this christmas - how cute will it be stamped on a big tag, or even right on to plain wrapping paper?? and speaking of tags.. studio calico is now stocking a big range of colors and sizes - i picked up a bunch for wrapping + pages.
wish i'd been able to do more with this kit, but with our trip to chicago, i just ran out of time. i'm going to add my leftover bits and pieces to my december daily stash.
oh good // 34th street : because, really, what makes a quiet afternoon better than finding a whistle?? ;) when i started this layout, it was all on the triangle paper as a background. and it just wasn't working for me. i ended up cuttig the page in half, right above the title. i then rebuilt the top half on the tone on tone chevron. and then realized it was only 10.25in tall instead of 11. OOPS. so i added the last strip at the top. so the whole page is a bit frankenstein-ed together, but i love the end result. ;)
open me // 34th street + penn station + little bits from herald square and murray hill : i am in LOVE with this stamp from penn station. i think it will be perfect for hidden journaling both for project life and pages, but for this page, it was a great fit for a title. i stamped it in black ink and then painted each letter with a different color of mister huey. i also used the boxes background behind it - stamped in pale aqua. this background has a lot of fun possibilities, too - i'd like to see it w/ different squares filled in with color, or with them cut out and backed with patterned paper! once i had my title and photo in place, i filled in the rest of the page with stickers from the midway label sheet. quick and easy!
hello wonderful day // 34th street + murray hill + herald square + kris kringle : the die cut frames in the murray hill addon are too cool - i love the mix of colors and patterns and words! i stacked two of them to make part of my title, and then added leters from the 12x12 sticker sheet to finish it off. they also made a perfect spot for me to add some stamped tabs and embellishments.
let it snow // 34th street + kris kringle + herald square + murray hill + penn station : kris kringle was my favorite add-on this month - love the wintery and christmasy bits! we just got out first dusting of snow, so i used a lot of those bits on my page. for the title, i wrote out the word snow on my ipad in the paper 53 app, and then brought it into silhouette studio on my laptop and traced it.
happy tuesday!! my sorta stuffy nose has turned into a full blown miserable cold.. BOO. if you need me, i'll be on the couch with lots of kleenex and water.
