This month, get to know Studio Calico member Marivi Fernandez (marivi). Marivi hails from Spain, where she and her husband reside with their dog. Learn more about about Marivi below!
Hi! I am Marivi. I live in Donosti (Guipuzcoa) a beautiful city in northern Spain. I live with my husband Jacky and my dog Atticus. I have always loved everything about art, but a few years ago I found myself immersed in photography and scrapbooking, which is relazing and fun for me. I discovered scrapbooking a few years ago ... 2011, I think, and I have not been able to stop. This year, I started off with the Documenter kit, and will continue with it, but perhaps with a smaller format, because this year I want to start with my planner.
SC Member since:
I’ve been a member since 2012, but my first scrapbook kit was the December 2014 Blue Note kit.
All-time favorite past kit or collection:
It's hard because I love every kit, but I have enjoyed the Lisse Street and Park Avenue kits probably the most!
What do you do when your kit comes?
I don’t open it until I'm completely calm and relaxed! For me, it is a surprise to discover all the goodies. After I open the kit, I put everything back as it was and start to think about what I’ll do and what sorts of photos I should take. Then, all of the fun begins!
What's your go to technique?
I love to use my sewing machine and incorporate ink splashes into my layout.

Where do you go when your mojo is low?
Of course, I use the Creative Team and member galleries, but Pinterest is an indispensable gallery, full of inspiration for all!
