So the January 2013 kit from Studio Calico - Block Party - was a great one. This was the first month I got the Project Life kit in addition to the main kit, and I loved them both. They coordinate perfectly, so I used the supplies interchangeably. To see the Project Life layouts I created with this kit, see this post.
First up, I used the Block Party kit plus my Kiwi Lane designer templates to create this layout.
Since I just used one of the sides of the borders for the layout, I just turned the papers over and used the other sides to create this next layout.
I'm loving the look of the not-quite-completely white background. I might have to start rotating that in with the kraft backgrounds I've been using so much of lately.
I'm also loving these Elf Thickers in Natural. They go with everything. Must find more.
Lastly, I was inspired by one of Shimelle's classes to create a layout with a background of punched circles. A great way to use up scraps. I love how it turned out - I'll definitely be scrap-lifting this again.
Between these three layouts and the Project Life spreads I did this month, I used up 90% of the kit. The rest went into my Project Life bin to intermingle with my other supplies for future spreads. Only about a week until the next Studio Calico kits come out. Can't wait!
