studio calico camelot kit giveaway!


i have this girlfriend who's the most giving person i know. every time i am in her town & we share coffee together, she always has a little something for me. last week was her birthday & she's expecting a little one soon. when studio calico contacted me about creating some pretties with their newest card kit, i was just plain giddy. i knew exactly who i wanted to make something for.


when the package arrived with the camelot card kit, my mind began spinning with creative ideas. it was such a surprise to open up this package filled to the brim with papers & accessories in citrus, peaches, yellows & robin's egg blue. 


i am a total newbie to card making & paper stuff in general so i stuck with what i know best - gifts & packaging. i sewed some of my scrap fabric to the bottom of little kraft shipping tags. i then began adding on little pretties from the card kit. those stamps are amazing. with the clear acrylic block, you can create unique stamps. once you're finished, you just place them back on the adhesive sheet. it's easy peasy & fun. why have i not ever used these stamps before?! mind blown. 


above are the tags i made using card stock, buttons & blue bubbles from the kit. now i have plenty of tags (& tons of supplies leftover!) to decorate little handmade gifts to friends & family. 


studio calico was generous enough to offer a card kit to one lucky natalie creates reader! 

all you have to do is leave a comment with your email address & how you would use your kit. i will choose a winner this friday, may 2nd. 

happy making!
love,
natalie

Your tags much the sentiment; everything about them is happy. Thank you for a chance to win a card kit. I'd love to play with those stamps making some spectacular paper birthday cakes to send out to family.

Diane Bright said...

I have the perfect idea!
I have missed my son so much since he got married and moved interstate and he has been missing us as well!
So I plan to send him a "Pass the Parcel" with little messages and gifts to open each day to bring us closer together in memories and thoughts!
I was wondering how to label every layer and by making little tags he can then staple them together at the end to keep!
Thankyou so much for your creative ideas!
