Did you see that? Did you read it? Middle column. First name. Yep – that’s me, people!
If you’ve known me for a while, you know how I feel about secrets. I don’t like them. If you tell me a secret I will most likely keep it. Most likely. No guarantees. I like to say that God set us all at different volumes and He programmed me to “Loudmouth.” I did a great job keeping this little gem under wraps, though and today I finally get to blab!
I have lots and lots of goals for the new Damask Love, which I’ll be sharing with you soon. One of these goals is to “expand the brand” and reach even more crafty people. You know, so we can induct them into this crazy club. As part of the SC Design Team, I’m hoping to do just that!
Another goal is to challenge myself in developing my crafting design skills. Since Studio Calico is largely a designer paper company, I am excited to combine my clean & simple style with their graphic patterns. My approach for pattern paper is to treat it like stamps – minus the inky mess, so I hope you’ll join me on this journey as I share my strategies for creating contemporary cards and projects with patterned paper.
Each month, you’ll join me here to see sneak peeks and project reveals for the Studio Calico Card Kit. For those who haven’t jumped into the Studio Calico kit club phenomenon, each month SC offers a complete kit of embellishments, cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon and stamps. There is also the option to order “Add On” Kits of more goodies. Each kit is carefully curated to include products that coordinate and make it easy to create polished cards and projects. I think the kits are a great resource for beginner level crafters who don’t want to do the work of selecting all the supplies they might need to make just one card. For more information on the kit clubs, click HERE.
Now for the fun part! First I have a little sneak peek of one of my Studio Calico projects that uses the January Card Kit.
I’ll be sharing more peeks on the Damask Love Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook pages, so be sure to join in! In the meantime, visit the Studio Calico Blog where you’ll find links for each of the team members. You can also head over to the Studio Calico Community for tonights live chat with the new team! Just login and click on “Live Chat”.
Alrighty, that’s it for now, but you should probably come back over here at 10:00am EST for ANOTHER really fun post! See ya later, alligators.
