I love kits and have for some time now so I was very excited to play with the Studio Calico kit for this mini album.
We recently took our family on a cruise to the Bahamas for our Christmas vacation instead of staying home in the cold. I knew as soon as mini month was mentioned that I would turn these photos into an album. And the fact that they are getting scrapped before the next Christmas? That's huge!
I had several photos printed off to wallet sized and decided to go full Studio Calico and use a small journal kit I had in my stash. I used the smaller 5" X 5" embossed album.
When I opened my kit I first fell in love with some of the bolder colors against the more neutrals as well. I had a bit of product in my stash from the March add on kits and included those in making my album too.
I decided to paint over the embossed cover with some brown paint then layered tags (from my stash). I misted the title with Mister Huey Heirloom Blue and liked the way it popped against the other elements. I finished it off with a neutral fabrip on the binding.
I have worked with these Pink Paislee Mistables before and I must say that although I was scared of them at first, I now absolutely love them!
Although I disassembled the inside of the album, I used the graph pages as a base. The tiny Dear Lizzy alphas were perfect for this size of album for small titles and added color.
A big thank you to Studio Calico for generously letting us play with one of their great kits!
