Seriously, the Studio Calico Reveal is one of my very favorite days...and I get to relive it every.single.month!
This month I went a little crazy with my reveal shopping. Well, actually, if I'm being honest...I go a little crazy every month...so forget that "this month" part.
Wanna see all the cool stuff I got?
Wanderlust Wood Veneer Squares 2. EVERY SINGLE Color Theory Ink Pad 3. White Gel Pen 4. Wanderlust Vellum Journal Cards 5. Ink ID Labels 6. Color Theory Mini Alphas 7. Office Hourse 4x6 Paper Pad
Aaaacccckkk! I can't wait to get my box! I think I'm most excited about those ink pads...I never really used to do much stamping on my projects, but now I stamp on almost every single one.
And...the dork in me CAN'T WAIT to label my ink pads with those ink ID labels! GAH!
How about you? Did you scoop any new goodies up this month?

I was working on my Project Life the other day and realized I really didn't have enough "month" cards to use for my weekly title cards.
So I figured I would make some. I wanted them to be fun, but also cool. And unique, but fairly easy to create.
So I grabbed a bunch of my letterpress plates and got to work...and oh.my.gosh. I am in LOVE!
I used black ink only for these cards, but I'm thinking next time (because there WILL be a next time) I'm going to try some multi-color cards...what?!?! yep. I'm doin' it.
When I was done letterpress-ing my designs I added some embellishments to my cards to make them extra unique. I especially love the pin dots with the oval from the "Petite" Printing Plate Set...aren't those polkas the absolute coolest?
I'll tell ya...that "Scholastic" font is class-y! And, seriously, the black? I just love how these cards look so clean and bright and bold...
And, because I round the corners on all of my PL & Albums Made Easy pages, I can't live without my Corner Chomper...2 different cuts, one tool...love. And something I've just started using, but now have by my side every crafting moment - my Stylus. It really acts as my fingers when my actual fingers are too inked-up, misted-up, glued-up, yucked-up to work with things I don't want to get dirty...plus, it works great as a scorer, embosser and paper-placer...
I really love my new cards...I mean, they so rock. And I made a bunch so that I don't have to make new ones each week.
Really...the more I use my Letterpress, the more I love it. And the easier it gets. Now I just want to Letterpress everything...everything.
