Ummm yeah, so you are probably wondering what is up with the title of this post? And no I am not going to New York although that would be fun;) Studio Calico's reveal is just a few days away and the Main Kit for December is called Park Ave.
I of course got to play with the Main Card Kit and three of the stamp set add ons, plus this month they are offering an additional 6x6 Patterned Paper Pad! So happy for this and I know a lot of you were asking for it.
Here's a little look at the Main Park Ave. Card Kit.
The above three cards were created using just the main Card Kit. I used several of the Color Theory Inks when creating this month and I really found that Purple Rain, Lime Light, Lemon Zest, and Glass Slipper worked really well with the Park Ave. colour scheme. Of course black ink is a must and while I love my Onyx Black Versafine ink I have become quite found of the Color Theroy Inky Black. I love how black the ink is and it works great for detail stamping, like sentiments and words.
Okay I will say this now and probably again ;), I don't think it gets much cuter then this Animal stamp set and matching dies. Totally adorable! I used the Color Theory Inks here too and I love how saturated the images are. I also used Versamark and Black Glitter ZING embossing powder on the hanging banner sentiment that you can see a peek of in the top left corner.Glitter goes with everything,right?!
Now speaking of cute and fun stamp sets-this set is just perfect for the crazy little monkeys in my life! I can't totally see making Valentines with my youngest using this set. I am forever calling her a little monkey because she is so mischievious:) For this card I added a pop of colour by using several little strips of patterened Paper from the Dots and Stripes 6x6 paper pad.
This is just a peek at the Park Ave Card Kit. And I of course am looking forward to the reveal of both the Park Ave. Project Life and Scrapbook Kits.
I have big plans for staying ontop of scrapping this coming year, well who am I kidding, I will never be "caught up" and that's okay. I am have accepted that some weeks I may take a zillion pictures and others maybe one, but as long as I embrace the stories that go along with them and doucument those moments, I am fine with it;)
One of the reasons I love getting my PL kit so much is that it makes putting those stories in an album so much easier. It comes with all the pieces I need to doucument my month and they are perfectly coordinated. As I have mentioned before I can easily get carried away with wanting and buying so much paper crafting supplies that it gets overwhelming and I end up not doing anything. I think that's why I love having some one else expertly put together cards, papers and embellishments that are not only coordinated but also on trend; it satifies my need for new and current products.
