Working My Studio Calico Kit {July}


As it neared the time for the reveal of Studio Calico's July kits, I found myself much more excited than the previous two months of my subscription. I adored the papers that were selected in all of the kits, though I wasn't very keen on any of the embellishments aside from the cork Thickers.

As I finally got underway to scrapbook photos from my parent's 50th wedding anniversary, I pulled together the papers from the main scrapbook kit, the Maggie Holmes Flea Market ephemera pack, bits from my Freckled Fawn kit, and some gold Thickers.



I have been wanting to practice my sewing, and so stitched on almost every layout. I've also been admiring confetti shakers, and since I have a hard time using frames, I thought combining the two would be perfect.



I'm pleased with how the layouts turned out, but as I worked on them, I gave a lot of thought to my creative process and style. I have been much more liberal with embellishments than ever before, and there are some new techniques I've been trying, but it all got me wondering. Do I try too many different techniques and use too many different items to have a style, or is that my style? I know it doesn't matter deep down, because I love creating, it just got me thinking is all.
