studio calico reveal: marks & co

Studio Calico's August kit, Marks & Co, goes live today. The subscriber presale is happening right
now, and the full reveal for everyone will be at midnight EST.  (The links to the add-ons in this post
won't work until then.) 
This month's kit are full of good stuff and some brand new products straight from CHA. The scrapbook
kit has an exclusive Amy Tangerine stitching template, wood veneer alphas in an awesome font, and
glossy asterisks. My favorite thing about this month are the stamps included in the Project Life kit by
Kal Barteski.... seriously..... it makes my heart happy!

Today I'm going to share one of my Project Life spreads during our summer vacation at the beach. 
This layout was made using only the Project Life main kit.

I used Becky Higgins Design A Photo Page Protectors as the base for both pages and added one 
insert to house additional photos.

The photo insert is opened to reveal two more photos. I added text to each of the photos prior 
to printing in photoshop.

The back of the insert holds a 4x6 photo. 

Close up of the left side of the spread. For my title card I used the Hello, Kal Barteski stamp
and the letter stickers to designate the week. 

I also added a few Kal Barteski digital brushes to my photos. I love her style!!

Close up of the second part of the week and the right side of the layout. I enlarge a vertical
photo to a 6x8 and then trimmed it carefully to fit into the 4x6 and two 3x4 spaces. I love them
impact of the larger photo against the smaller photos as well as the comparison in size of my 
husband to my little girls. I chose to use bullet point journaling so I could get all the information 
in right now. I have more in depth journaling that I plan to add in at a later time, but I didn't 
want to feel rushed to get it all in and forget something important.
