For the first time since it's release, our new Card Kit is finally available for single purchases and new subscriptions! To celebrate, we put this kit into the hands of four very talented card makers - Mel Blackburn, Patricia Roebuck, Katie Ehmann and Julie Campbell. We hope you'll love what they've made with it as much as we did!
Hello everyone! I’m Mel Blackburn and I’m so very excited to be sharing the cards I created with the November card kit! A little bit about me, I’m a SAHM to 3 beautiful girls. I started crafting when my oldest was born, 8 years ago and I’m so very grateful for discovering this hobby. Along the way I’ve met some amazing people, who I now call friends, I’ve also had various opportunities which have helped me become the scrapbooker / card maker that I am today. I love to play with paper, it satisfies two needs; one of which is to preserve memories for my family, the other is to do something crafty and play with pretty papers and embellishments, a crafty girl couldn’t ask for better! I’m so honored to have been asked to create with the November kit. I love the 6x6 paper pad, the small prints of the paper is perfect for cards. Of course the wonderful greeting stamp is ultra versatile and the embellishments are the perfect addition to any cards. I was so impressed with this kit, once I started playing with it I just couldn’t stop, I’ll be sharing the remainder of my cards on my blog. http://melblackburn.blogspot.ca/ Thank you again Studio Calico, this has been so much fun!
I really thought once we adopted our daughter, I wouldn't have time to scrap, but I have found that I love the hobby so much, that I make the time to scrap. I live in south Louisiana, near New Orleans, married for 22 years, and our 4-year old keeps us young. Besides scrapping and playing with my daughter, I enjoy reading and watching shows with the hubby; and am obsessed with Pinkberry, Starbucks, and Mexican Food. Before being a full-time Mom, I worked at a large insurance company for 20 years.
Trendy, Classy, and Pretty...that’s how I felt as I worked with this beautiful kit. The embellishments were the perfect amount, unique, hard to find items, along with an assortment of vintage style buttons. I could have made a few more cards from the kit, the stamp set alone could have you making several designs. And the 6x6 specialty pad was just gorgeous, and I think it was my favorite...the patterns and the colors made the cards come together quickly. Thank you so much Studio Calico, for the opportunity to play with this gorgeous kit!
I was thrilled when I found out that Studio Calico was expanding to include Card Kits & subscribed to the kit right away. I’ve loved each of the kits & the November kit was no exception. The scaled-down patterned paper is perfect for smaller projects like cards & Project Life & the stamp sets are top notch. The embellishments in this kit are so trendy & fun! Thank you so much for the opportunity to work with such a great kit!
Please join me in thanking Mel, Patricia, Katie and Julie for joining us on the Studio Calico blog today!!
