february's kits are live at studio calico - say hello to FRONT ROW. here's what i made with this month's kits :
no coats // as soon as i saw this skyline stamp, i knew i had to print out some of our chicago pics. i stamped it here in hero arts charcoal, my new favorite gray. and then promptly dropped the inkpad on the paper. thankfully, the damage was minimal (see that faint gray line?), so i decided to roll with it.
i really really really love the basic grey ticket-y paper - most of the elements on this page were cut from that. i used the vellum to add a confetti pocket, and then finished the page with some of the enamel dots from the main. (kits used - front row scrapbook kit)
show & tell // i love these photos of sam showing off his first show & tell of the school year, but there is a LOT of dark blue going on in them! to counter that, i used mostly neutrals on my page, with a few pops of bright color. the accents add just enough color to draw your eye around the page, and the neutrals make sure the photos really pop. (kits used - front row scrapbook kit + popcorn + matinee + junior mints + big screen)
to the moon & back // i LOVE this card from the project life kit. i came THIS close to just framing it, to be honest. it took a lot for me to commit it to a SB page, but it really fit with this photo, so i went for it. i kept the rest of the page pretty simple - i didn't want to overshadow the card and photo.

PL week 33 - august 11-17 // i still haven't figured out what album i want to use for my 2013 PL, so i keep coming back to filling in 2012 rather than moving forward. must change that soon. BUT. i've decided that there's definitely something to be said for recording hot august days while i'm freezing my tush off in january! (kits used - front row project life kit)
