On Crafting by Sandy

Studio Calico's February kits really drew me out of my scrapping comfort zone. I enjoyed experimenting with new colour and pattern combinations and even made my own rosette / flower out of the Pink Paislee pinked trim. In my books that deserves a layout.    

My next project shows off some ATCs created at a crop. The photo of an altered drinking glass filled with sweet lemon balm inspired a floral direction for the layout. The design focused on the idea of tabs. I used an actual metal index clip and also created the illusion of tabs using phrase stickers and a journal card.  

Finally a name card with a matching holder. If you love Sassafras' Starters collection, there is an exclusive paper in the main kit that carries on the theme. It's my favourite thing from this month's kit and I couldn't resist using it to make my calling card.   

Tomorrow Jaime will be revealing the new challenge. It's a fun one and I hope you like my take on it.
