Words of Wisdom

Well I've finally done it and used up a whole Studio Calico kit!
You see, when it comes to my kits, I'm a chronic horder.
I store them in their pretty bags, pull them out to do one or
two layouts and back in the bag it goes.
Well this month I did things differently, I created
4 layouts and a card, yeah I have stuff leftover, but
I'm ready to move on and part with what's left over of the kit,
I'm ok with that because I'm happy with what I created.

Danika turned 8 a couple of weeks ago and when I
saw the Amy Tangerine speech bubble paper, I knew
I wanted to use it to showcase randome quotes
that I like to tell Danika. This was also inspired
by Nicole Samuel's DT layout for Studio Calico.

I cut out the inside of the speech bubble using an exacto knife,
printed the quotes on vellum, and glued both parts together,
trimmed the edges and voila, instant speech bubbles with flair.
I just think it's a fun take on some pretty funky pattern paper.

With the scraps of paper, I managed to whip up a quick
fun card for a very awesome friend!

Can you spy something new on this card? If you noticed the
diecut word you are correct!!! My Silhouette Cameo arrived this
past week and I've been having a blast with it!
Happy Mondahy y'all!
