SCinspires | the underground kit


Happy Monday!  Something new to kick off the week – I’m excited to be participating in Studio Calico’s #SCinspires Bloghop/Giveaway. Today I’m sharing glimpses of this month’s Project Life Kit, The Underground. This kit really speaks to my minimalist aesthetics – I love that black and white is a prevalent color theme. That’s my go to “color” combo because you can work them into any type of spread.  That “sweater weather” card is going to make it’s way onto a PL spread very soon. Or rather, as soon as this So Cal weather decides it wants to act seasonally appropriate. It still feels very much like summer right now and frankly, I’m so ready to bust out the sweaters and boots already. Also, it just doesn’t feel right to drink pumpkin anything when it’s 90 degrees out.

The one thing in this month’s kit that immediately jumped out at me are these copper rub ons by Tina Aszmus of LifeLovePaper. I go bananas over anything Tina makes and hello, copper. I’m obsessed with all things copper at the moment. The tricky part now is finding a photo that will does these rub ons justice.


And now for the super fun part…the giveaway details!
