SCinspires | the underground kit

October 13, 2014 |  by  |  giveaway  |  104 Comments


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!

I’m giving away one October Project Life Kit (The Underground)! Just leave a comment here by October 31, 2014, 11:59PM EST. A winner will be chosen at random and announced here shortly after the contest ends. But wait, there’s more!

I am so excited to share that On My Desk, the scrapbook collection I designed for Gossamer Blue, is now available for purchase! My team just got their kits in the mail last week. I asked them to snap a few images of their stash and this is what they sent in.

It’s still a bit surreal to see everything in print!

I love this dreamcatcher that Carly made using the gold vellum and wood veneer pieces. Project details are posted on Carly’s blog.

Look for more projects in the coming weeks featuring the kit from creative team members Kelly Schmidt, Jamaica Edgell, Carly Robertson, Caylee Grey and Amy Martin.

Happy weekending friends!  It’s going to be a low key one for us – watching the USC football game saturday night and going to a birthday party on Sunday.  What are your plans for the weekend?

Caylee here. Sup.

I am not a scrap hoarder. But I hoarded this acrylic album from my fellow Paislee Press CT member, Jamaica. I was so intimidated by its awesomeness that I felt like nothing that I could put in would be worthy. I eventually realised that I did have something that matched the level of awesome. My husband. With pink being just as manly as any other colours nowadays, I took the opportunity to mix the “her” part of the His & Hers kit, and the very manly Hey There Handsome kit. As always, I kept things super simple.

I’ve got a thing for coffee. A good morning always begins with a cup of freshly brewed coffee. I know, it’s not everyone’s thing. There’s also bits and pieces in the kit devoted to tea drinkers. Good Morning is the newest collection in my shop and it’s on sale thru October, 5, 2014!




There’s also a special 50% OFF listing for presslisters, check the newsletter that went out yesterday for details!

new in the shop | 2015 calendar kits & sm(art) mouth 2

September 26, 2014 |  by  |  product releases + news  |  1 Comment


Lots of new products in the shop this week so let’s get right to it!  I originally planned to release the 2015 Calendars next month but after getting lots of “when will they be available?” requests from customers, I moved “get 2015 Calendars ready” to the top of my to do list. Three 2015 Calendar sets are now available, with more to come (like the 3×4 Calendar Cards)  next month.

2015 Calendar Kit – 4×6 and 5×7 layered templates


2015 Poster Calendar Kit (16×20 Inches)

2015 Poster Calendar Kit (20×30)

This extra large 20×30 Poster Board format is a personal favorite!  In years past, I’ve used it to showcase my daughter’s artwork. This one from 2012 is still up in her room. When the year is up, just cut off the Calendar portion. I do have plans of making new posters featuring more recent artwork soon.


2015 Calendar Kit Bundle – Purchase all three and save even more! This weekend only, this set is 40% OFF!

Also, presslisters save an additional 10% OFF any 2015 Calendar Order. Be on the lookout for the coupon code in the latest Presslist newsletter that went out yesterday! If you’re not a subscriber, you can sign up HERE to take advantage of the extra subscriber savings this weekend.


The Calendars are available in two different formats: Sunday – Saturday (US) or Monday – Sunday (International). Your order does not include both, just the ONE format you select!

This dropdown window is at the bottom of each 2015 Calendar listing. Select your desired format (Sunday – Saturday or Monday – Sunday) by scrolling down to the dropdown window at the bottom of each 2015 Calendar listing.



Also new this week is a collaboration between myself and Peppermint of One Little Bird. Sm(art) Mouth No. 2 is a cheeky little package of sassy word art. No one does snarky as well as Peppermint, she makes me laugh all day long. Working on this set with her was SO fun. This set is 20% OFF thru the weekend!
