Project Life 2012 | Week Fifty-One (Studio Calico January Project Life Kit)

Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Fifty-One.

I’m excited to share my first spread using Studio Calico’s new Project Life monthly kit. This month is called Block Party. Please note: the Project Life kits are currently wait-listed.

I used the long red arrow from the December Daily stamp set.

Open Me and Arrow stamps are from the Studio Calico Penn Station kit. Also used my Outline Banners (Tis The Season) on the top right photo.

    Did you stamp right on the photo Ali? Or is it on a transparency? Have loved your PL this year. I have done it since 2009 and never regretted the move…

      I stamped right on the photo using Staz On ink.

    Your PL pages are always so great, Ali! Thanks for continuing to share your life and art with us. Did you use some sort of tiny (mint green) alpha sticker on these journal cards: THERE WAS SNOW and “wed”? I love those!

      Those were part of the Studio Calico kit – made by Basic Grey (I think that color was exclusive to the kit). Basic Grey has other small letter stickers like that which you can check out here:

    Are you going to use other PL édition (like seafoam) or only the SC kit every month? Just curious And taking advise for myself :)

      Ali said…

      I’ll be using Seafoam as my primary kit and then doing at least one spread per month that just includes things from the Studio Calico kit.

    Im so glad you’re using the Studio Calico stuff. I love everything you do and have been a SC kit member for years so am looking forward to the PL kit. I only wish the first one could’ve come before the year started. I’m dying to get started. Can’t wait to follow your pages with these kits.

    Hi Ali!! I love you pages and am so excited! I will be doing PL for the first time this year!
    I am wondering if you can help me?
    Is there a template that either you have designed or someone else that corresponds with Becky’s different style page protectors? (Like style A and style F etc.) I’m looking for a 12X12 template where I can place my photos in the same as the page protectors so I can visualize what I need to print for the week. Does that make sence? Haha! I hope so. Thanks for the help!!

    We are so lucky that you share with us, thank you. A good reminder that letter stickers fit on journaling cards. And I’m intrigued by the open me stamp. It’s a very cool idea. I love where stamps are taking PL.

    Hi! Can I find Studio Calico’s monthly kit as a digital version? I live in Europe and ordering the actual kit comes pretty expensive. Love how it looks, would like to buy it in digital form!
