what inspires you? a Studio Calico blog hop...PLUS a HUGE GIVEAWAY!

Autumn is my very favorite season...

After months filled with swimming pools, crazy kids in and out of the house all day, hot days, humid evenings, and weeks filled with one thing or another I look forward to the fall...

...opening every window in the house and letting the cool breezes air out a home closed up and air-conditioned for most of the summer...

...warm sweaters, knit hats & comfy socks...

...comfort food and family dinners that don't need to be rushed...

...and all of the beautiful & brilliant colors of nature.

Even though the earth (in our hemisphere) is shutting down and preparing itself to hibernate, there is such amazing inspiration to be found at this time of year.

I am so inspired by the smells of spice & cinnamon, the crunching of leaves, the yellows & browns & oranges and the early onset of darkness (more time to create!).

And I'm ALWAYS inspired by Studio Calico. The kits, the digital items, the galleries, the members on the message boards...they all come together to make for one crazy inspiration-filled place to hang out.

The current kits, The Underground, are some of the best SC has ever put together...and they are filled with products that make me want to drop everything and make stuff.

SC has recently started adding screens (with which to make screenprints) to their kits. "What's this?" you ask "A screen?" Yep. And they are awesome...let me show you.

This "make magic" screen (from Hello Forever) comes in the October Main Scrapbook Kit...

I LOVE this sentiment. It inspires me to go out and live...to create the life I want for my family...to make magic for us...

And now, to celebrate all of the inspiration that can be found during this beautiful season, Studio Calico wants to know what inspires YOU!

OK...so here's how the giveaway will work...(there are 2 parts...)

Prizes first:

Prizes for the giveaway will be determined by how many times the hashtag #scinspires is shared...here's a short list of prizes so you can get idea of how this goes:


...and that list will GROW & GROW & GROW as the number of shares increases! What?!?!?! ACK! so cool...

Now...how do you enter this crazy-awesome giveaway?

Easy peasy.

All you have to do is download this printable from the Studio Calico shop...that's it. No strings. Just download. And you're entered.

Winners will be chosen from all of the people who download the printable. I know...sounds too easy, right? You get the printable PLUS you're entered to win? I'm telling you...that's all you need to do.

  22. Love fall but also from the Midwest, and really don't like what comes after!! That said, I do like the fall to do more crafting. SC is helping with that by offering such great product, designers, and classes. Christmas is just around the corner...card and tag making, too many projects ...not enough time! brinkleyboy
