Studio Calico Countryside

I am loving everything about the new lines from Studio Calico and have challenged myself to actually use them instead of hoarding them like I have a tendancy to do! The Studio Calico challenge at two peas doesn't hurt either...I'm crossing my fingers! Here's a LO I did using the Countryside line, some fabulous wood veneer stars and the incredible Mr. Huey splattered about! Studio Calico and a few details of the house of three multi-colored twine...it's really awesome stuff! Studio Calico Studio Calico Thanks for stopping by!

Candy Shoppe and State Fair

It's spring break here and we are staying as close to home as possible without making mags feel like a recluse. Truth be told, I would rather stay home and clean, and organize and get my craft on...but my 9 year old only knows that all of her friends are out of town and she has no one to play with...it's hard being an only child!

I did get some cleaning and crafting done today...I won't bother with the cleaning details, but I did make a LO using the new State Fair line from Studio Calico and can I just say that it is a little bit of heaven!!

Here's a LO of mags and her best friend meeting across the fence...it happens almost every day during the week when play dates are not allowed

and a close up of how I changed up each of the columns...I cut the scallops with a border punch and then stitched it, I cut out some of the shapes and popped them up, and I cut out and stitched some of the rectangles and then popped them up...lots of fun!

I made a card for a birthday party mags went to yesterday using the parts of the scallops that I cut off and another strip of pp left over from my LO...I put the card on a home made envelope that held the gift card she was giving to her friend.

I also made a LO using my Candy Shoppe kit...I love the yellow in this kit...it just makes me happy! and I love those sweet little heart hands she makes!
