December Guest Designer | Studio Calico

Earlier this year when we were talking about working together on a December Daily kit April from Studio Calico asked me if I'd like to be a guest designer for their December kits.

Sounded fun to me.

Here's a look at three layouts I put together with the main kit and a few things from a couple of the add-on kits.

A 2-page 8.5x11 layout about me and my weekend adventure to Portland a couple weekends ago.

The first page is a full-photo with some small tags and such I picked up over the weekend stapled along the bottom. "Hello right now" are chipboard/letter stickers attached onto the back of a coaster from one of the restaurants. Underneath the coaster title is a sheet from a Smash journal book and one of those great little wood flags from My Mind's Eye. The white pen I used around the outside is a Sharpie Poster Paint pen.

The Smash journal book and the wood flags are both available in the Printer's Drawer kit.

One about Simon and his sparkle. The great sparkly chipboard letter stickers are part of the Snow Cone kit. The word sticker phrases are from Cosmo Cricket and are included with the main kit.

And one about Anna and how she is so much her own person. Love those Ormolu number tags and the custom American Crafts chipboard letter stickers (called "Ali") which are both included in the main kit. I also love that stamp used on the top row of tags - it's included in the Snow Cone kit.

I have to say, I loved making these layouts. I'm hoping to incorporate making more layouts into my routine in 2012.

    hi Ali. I know this really isn't the appropriate time or place, but it has been a long long time since I've regually read your blogs etc. I think I read something about a sad ending to your marriage? If this is true, my heart goes out to you. Such a beautiful family....and still are :) Anna has grown so much! :)
