Video: Studio Calico + Shadow Inks… and Kit Giveaway

Hey there, fellow addicted stampers.

I just wanted to share a video I did for Studio Calico. I used their awesome March kits, along with Hero Arts Soft Shadow Inks and Mid-Tone Shadow Inks. Here is the video…

Here is the layout. A giant photo of pregnant me in the water. Boy do I wish I was there now.

The Shadow Inks work great with lots of SC kits. Similar colors.

And, of course, this cardmaker needed to make a card…

Lovely products in those kits, I tell ya!

And as often happens, most of these kits are all sold out already. You gotta move fast! But sweet Kelly Purkey said that I could give away one of the kits for Maggie Holme’s upcoming class, Happy Little Moments. (Sign up quick for the class – the last day you can do so is tomorrow.) Here is a bit about the class…

Join Maggie Holmes in our Calico Classroom March self-paced class. Life is full of happy little moments that we often don’t scrapbook. This altered book is the perfect place to tuck them in along with a few sentiments and beautiful hand picked embellishments. Maggie will walk you through the creation process and show you some fun techniques for making a magical and unique album.


Just leave a comment here for a chance to win a sold out Happy Little Moments Class Kit. Do so by Wednesday at 11:59pmEST.

Good luck. See you tomorrow!

  41. Lovely! Thanks for a chance to win!

  42. Hey Jennifer,

    First, I would also love to be there on that beach!

    We were lucky enough to charter a boat in the BVIs a few years back and had a great time. So beautiful!

    I love your layout and will be pinning it for inspiration as I work on my BVI pages.

    I have to say I was shocked when you said you were using “Satan’s Crystals!” I had to replay the video and look at the packaging to make sure I heard correctly. Oh, “Say It In Crystals,” not Satan’s Crystals! lol Note to self: get hearing checked.

    I noted that you have a hard time lining things up. I have the same issue. I discovered that I am much better at it when I stand than when I sit. Perhaps give that a try? I’ll be dragging out my T-Ruler more!

    Anyway, sorry for the long post!

    Loved your layout – thanks for sharing the tips and techniques.


  43. Sue D
