Crate Paper & Studio Calico & a Giveaway!

So the two big names in scrapbooking goodness teamed up for some exclusive paper in the freshly debuted August kit, Boardwalk...and it is all kinds of pretty--

Walk down the Boardwalk and head out to the beach  - August's main kit has a calming palette of blues and greens, reminiscent of the ocean. In addition to just released products from American Crafts and Pink Paislee, we've packed Boardwalk with exclusives - there are two patterned papers designed by Crate Paper, a Sassafras alphabet in a just for us color, and two papers and an alphabet by Studio Calico that you won't find anywhere else. Dig your toes into the sand and get ready to be inspired!

The alphabet exclusives are awesome! I have already reached for them on other projects and will continue to do so until they are gone. The colors and patterns in the kit are versatile for any occasion you might be wanting to document and of course, we can't forget about the stamp. But really, would you expect anything less than perfection from Studio Calico?
Yea, I didn't think so ;)

Being on the Crate Paper team I was asked to contribute a few layouts created with the kit--you can see those on the Studio Calico blog today.

And now for the fun part--GIVEAWAY TIME! Studio Calico has generously offered to giveaway a $10 gift certificate...all you have to do is comment on my blog. Easy peasey. Maybe tell me what you love about Boardwalk or what you would use your gift certificate on. (The SC store has lots of fun goodies in it!) Or just say HI :) Either way comment and I will draw a random winner on Sunday. Comment away!

  9. Love your "10 things" Page with your son. It will be a nice memory years from now, my children did not always smile for pictures, sometimes it's nice to catch them unaware or grumpy. They make great memories! (especially for scrapbookers)
