Our Creative Teams have fallen in love with the Studio Calico digital stamps, printables and templates as a way to stretch their kits even futher. For this challenge, they want you to try a digital element or two on your next project. And to make it even easier, we've even got a free printable for you right here.
Catherine Davis | I used the Planetarium Spring Snaps Digital Layout Template in the 6x12 size to make an insert for my album. Love how inserts can really focus on a specific event or theme. For the back of my template, I used the heart and text elements from the template again to anchor my journaling and added a strip of patterned paper.
Shanna Noel | It was natural for me to sign up for the digital challenge. I love all the ways you can use digital elements in your pages, but brushes are my favorite. I love taking an element on your page (for me it was the salmon color in the paper clip) and matching it to the brush you want to use. I simply added a brush from the Planetarium kits to the photo to tie the colors all together a bit, plus can you really have too much of that adorable stamp? No, I didn't think so either!! :) I can't wait to see what you guys do with this challenge, I am always so inspired by you!
Deb Duty | I created this layout with the soft blues and yellow found in the Planetarium kits. The arrow that says "the little things" is from the printables that are available to go with the kits this month. It was the perfect addition to the cluster of elements near the photo of my son as a tiny baby many years ago!
Lucy Abrams | I love using digital products, and I love to alter them too. For my card, I used the Cross Pattern and Cut Out People stamps from the Project Life Digital set, and a sentiment from the Paislee Press Digital set. First, I altered the Cross Pattern brush to pink, then stamped it repeatedly to create a fun patterned paper background. Then I added a row of Cut Out People, and finally, the cute sentiment. After printing, I added some stitching and a cork arrow sticker to give the card a bit more dimension and texture.
