I’ve killed the Film Club kit from Studio Calico, and not a moment too soon because I’m definitely ready to move on to something else. Mind you, I still don’t have my new kit, but I’m really hoping it will show up today.
The video includes the kill-a-kit portion, a layout share, and my very first giveaway! I’m giving away every single product from the Film Club kits that I didn’t touch this month (and there were plenty!). Everything shown in the photo below will be heading out to one of you lovely people:
All you have to do is pop over to YouTube and tell me in the comments there what your favorite item is from the photo above. Let me know what you’d be most excited to receive, and I will choose a winner at random and announce the name Sunday afternoon.
We all complain so much about being busy – and frankly, the complaining makes a ton of sense. We’re all overbooked, overworked, over-everything.
But in scrapbooking, busyiness just means using a bunch of product on a single layout. So much nicer than the real-life, sweating-bullets, pulling-your-hair-out kind of busyness, right?
This is the last layout I’ll be creating with the Film Club kits from Studio Calico, so my goal when sitting down to scrap was to use up a bunch of product and have a lot of fun doing it. I think I accomplished both objectives!
I have to start by saying that this layout is definitely my favourite layout I’ve created with the Film Club kit from Studio Calico so far.
I was feeling a little uninspired by the kit as a whole, especially with my Project Life spreads. You might have noticed that I didn’t even post a Project Life spread this week. I just wasn’t very happy with the way it turned out, I didn’t think it was worth sharing. (If you’re curious, I will be showing it, briefly, in my Kill-a-Kit video in the next couple of weeks.)
So I wasn’t exactly feeling motivated to create a layout with this kit, until I bribed myself to return to my scrapping desk with the promise of using as many of the techniques and supplies I love on one layout. Continue Reading
This week’s Project Life spread is all about going back to basics. I pulled out a whole bunch of my favourite techniques, including perhaps my favourite of all: lots and lots of handwriting directly on photos at every opportunity.
(If you haven’t seen my recommendation on the best pens to use to do this, check it out here.)
I’ve been having trouble uploading photos to my blog, so for the time being I’m going to keep this post brief. For lots of details about the stories I’m telling and the techniques I’m using, watch the full process video here.
I’ve got plenty of close-up photos at the end of the video if you’re interested in those.
Thanks for watching, and have an awesome weekend! Oh, and if you’re in North America, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! 🙂
