sneak a peek

To say I am thrilled to be the guest designer for Studio Calico next month would be an understatement. I have loved their kits for a long time and bought several months before starting my subscription about a year ago. Love that they provide the latest and greatest in scrapbooking supplies and always have the exclusives that cannot be found elsewhere. The design team does an incredible job creating projects each month getting everyone excited for the kits. Their community is positive and upbeat and if you couldn't tell already, I am honored to be guesting for them. Not to mention, this is probably my favorite kit from them ever. As in I have already completed 5 layouts and know I can probably whip up a few more before the full reveal on the 28th. So here are a few sneaks:

How cute is this banner using the exclusive Thickers by American Crafts:

In other exciting news, I am looking forward to teaching in 2 days with my new mini books and goodies. We put together the kits yesterday and here's what everyone will be getting at Scrapbook Oasis:

The tag won't be stitched (but you'll learn how and do it yourself) and there are some more fun surprises in store. Sign up for the class here.
And if you're near San Diego, I'll be teaching at Paper Tales on Saturday, August 27th. The variation on the kit will be the butterfly kraft stickers instead of the stars. So excited!

If there's enough interest online, the kits may also be available (in a very limited quantity) on my website. Hope you enjoyed the sneaks!
