SC Inspires Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Hello everyone! thank you for dropping by my blog! i am so glad to be part of this blog hop by studio calico! to chase away the monday blues, you will be happy to know that studio calico is launching a new giveaway - #scinspires. we'll love to get everyone sharing this hashtag and talk about how studio calico inspires you! 

i'll start the ball rolling here! the main reason why i was first drawn to studio calico was because i love the idea of beautifully coordinated kits that arrives at my doorstep every month! for a short period of time, i use to love working with collections but after i while i find myself trying to mix different collections. this was definitely time consuming as it's not an easy task to mix and match items that are not made to be coordinated! so one day i found studio calico while researching on the silhouette cameo and i was pleasantly surprised how perfect the kits would be for me! no more time used to coordinate as someone professional has already done it for me!

i also love the mix of items that are included in the kits, some of them i would never have picked up if i saw them in the store so this kinda challenge me to try out something new! not forgetting the exclusive items studio calico comes up with for the kits, papers and embellishments i cannot get anywhere else! for example, the silkscreen in the latest scrapbook main kit - the underground



i'm pretty sure i would not have tried if it wasn't in my box and here's why!

1. i wouldn't think that a silk screen can be used for scrapbooking

2. i'm usually not so comfortable with using big elements on my layout. i love small embellishments and the design of the silk screen is rather big for me. 

3. i am usually more drawn to circle and heart shapes so diamond elements are also new for me.

however, having said all these, this lovely silkscreen was in my box and after seeing what the some of the members (i love the members gallery at sc!) and creative team did with the silk screen last month, i felt inspired to give it a try! 



and now i'm hooked to silk screens! ha! thanks sc for coming up with such an awesome product! love the different ways i can colour it (you can try mist, acrylic paint, gelatos...) and how easy is it to use and it adds that artistic touch to my layouts! can't wait to see more in future kits! 

ok, now that you know how studio calico has inspired me, it's your turn to share! here are the details of this giveaway and how you can play along!
