1st stop


eta: And the winner of the new label stickers is.................
Robin said...

love the cowlick title and those little cows all over--cute!

Robin, please send me an email april@studiocalico.com to claim your prize.

Welcome to the first stop along the Studio Calico CHA Winter 2011 Blog Hop. We're going in alphabetical order from one designer to the next and I happen to be first. In school, I was April Alexander and was always second behind my sister, Amber until Neely Abell came along and bumped me to third place. That name always put me in the front of the class in assigned seating, the front of the line to the bathroom, and first to the cafeteria. Served me well for lots of years.

Too long of a story for this blog hop. One of my favorite products in our release is these label stickers. Yes, they're simple, but versatile and I get to give away a set of all 3 colors to one lucky winner. Just read through this post and comment at the end and go to the next person on the hop for a chance to win another product. Fun, huh?

I used the cream and blue version of these stickers on the Cowlick layout below.

I also used several papers from the Countryside release, a border punch (which is back in stock!) a white gel pen, black pen, and some of the More Color from January's kit. The colors just worked so well with this release.

On my next layout, I used one of my favorite papers from Countryside (that red gingham) along with the State Fair papers.

I was so happy with the way this SUPER CLAIRE layout turned out. Don't you love it when an idea in your head works out on paper?

The journaling reads:
Fighting frowns and general crankiness one grin at a time. Super Claire comes equipped with goos, coos, and winks to combat the worst of scenarios. Warning: spit-up has been known to accompany some crime-fighting situations and poo occurs almost hourly so a change in super-suit is almost always needed. No batteries necessary. Stays charged all night.
Now on to the next stop, my friend in France: Celine Navarro.

If you lose your place along the way, you can always go back to the Studio Calico blog and click on the designers' links in the side bar.

Don't forget to leave a comment here. Say anything you'd like for a chance to win those label stickers. Comments will be closed on Wednesday 12:00am EST and a winner announced shortly thereafter.

Oh how i LOVE that "cowlick" picture. I actually told my boys that the reason they have cowlicks are because they got too close to our fence when they were little and a cow licked them. And that Ella doesn't have one because we don't raise cattle anymore. :0) Ha!
