with a stop on the hop for studio calico's new HOME FRONT


welcome to my stop on the studio calico blog hop! i'm so excited to share with you what i've done with the new home front papers, stickers, and fabRips, but first, let me share with you a bit of my home. this is my kitchen. i don't spend as much time here as i probably should, but it is one of my favorite rooms because of my chicken collection. the chickens have followed me from our washington state home, where i had chickens and chef wallpaper. my sister made me the embroidered towels for a christmas gift and i've just added to collection here in colorado. they make me smile every time i see them. i also love my red breadbox and my black pitcher full of cooking utensils.

now, the reason you're here... i have to admit i was a little stumped by this paper at first, not quite sure what to do, but once i started cutting paper, i couldn't get this page done fast enough. it was so much fun to put these lamps together! using the fabRips to make accordion pleated lampshades made me very happy. :) now i'm seeing lots of possibilities with this paper, i just had to make the first cut. i love this layout!



so here's how you win...

LOVE those lampshades - what a great idea!

briscrapper said...

Emily, this won't help you any, but my favourite Christmas music is the new album put out every year by one of our large depart. stores (Myer) featuring Aussie artists singing Christmas songs. All proceeds go to charity. It's must at my Christmas lunch.

Aur0re said...

OMG!!!!! Your layout is wonderful!! One of my favourite!!

In France we listen to "Petit papa Noël" from Tino Rossi....

Preacher'sWife said...

Love Jeff & Sheri Easter's It Feels Like Christmas Again. I don't know if you like the country-bluegrass style, but if you do, it's worth it.

Abby said...

Well, I have too many Christmas faves to say one is my absolute fave, but I sure do love the Mariah Carey Christmas cd. Don't laugh at me though. ;)

Laura Fiore said...

Hi Emily! I can definitely tell you the HEINOUS version of Silent Night I just heard while working in Sephora tonight is NOT my favorite Christmas song!

I'm a sap, but I still love the Vince Gill version of Let There Be Peace on Earth that he sings with his daughter!

serenarepsold said...

So old school, but I love Bing Crosby's "White Christmas." An oldie but a goodie (kind of like myself). Love your lamp border! I love all the vintagey stuff that's so in right now.

Gisou said...

J'aime beaucoup la page et la collection !!!

Denise said...

Ha! I have chickens in my kitchen, too. Go figure. Your layout is wonderful. Love what you did with the lamps. In regard to holiday music, oh boy. My iPod has over 200 holiday songs. It's an obsession. Yesterday I just found Relient K on iTunes. Alternative rocking holiday tunes. Nuttin' for Christmas cracked me up. Weezer's holiday album is fun, too. Check out The Pretenders' 2000 Miles. Finally, you can never go wrong with Frank Sinatra. I love his rendition of We Wish You The Merriest. There's more where that came from. So if you need more, just let me know. ;o)

Petitangelili said...

Oh I try my chance and I files to see your blog

Amy Christine said...

i love your layout! your idea for using those lamps is genius. :]

My favorite holiday song is Fairytale of New York by the Pogues.

Stephanie said...

Love what you did with the lamp shades! My favorite holiday song...I have so many, but it would have to be "I'll have a Blue Christmas without You". Reminds me of my dad when he was in the navy and would have to be gone at Christmas he would send each of us a card, and would end it with this song title.

Mary Jo said...

It's a tie between Silent Night and Bing Crosby's White Christmas!

You had me at the lampshades. Seriously? Your creativity knows no bounds, man.

I also love Josh Grobans holiday album Noel... very pretty.. great for background letter writing session etc.. lol

ArlaMo said...

LOVE the lampshades. Fabulous!

I just ordered some new Christmas music from Kurt Metzger. He was in our Bishopric in MN and is the most amazing musician. Our Sacrament meetings were AWESOME because he would play on almost every song. I so miss that!!

Mia said...

MLE! OMG! That is one gorgeous layout! Love what you did with the lamps!

As far as my fave Christmas songs, I've got a ton but I think the top 2 would have to be Someday at Christmas by the Jackson 5 & Grown Up Christmas List. Love them because they speak of finding peace in this world rather than material things.

sylvie said...

OMG, I love what you did with that lamp paper. As far as Holiday album/artist, I have to admit Christmas songs make my cry, so I don't actually have any that I listen to. The only holiday song album that I have is from Enya.

Mabel said...

My favorite album for the Christmas season is an older Rat Pack Christmas Song, loooooooooooooove it!! =)

Charlie Brown's Christmas and The Nutcracker music instantly gets me in the mood! And...have I ever told you you're brilliant? LOVE the lamp shades!!!!!!

Jennie said...

I am actually really excited for Suugarland's Christmas CD! My favorite Christmas song is Mary Did You Know (favorite singer singing it is Clay Aiken, but the singer doesn't really matter - the meaning of the song is so good!) Hope you enjoy adding to your collection! :)

Those lamps shades are adorable! I love all the traditional songs at Christmas, but for a bit of fun we have really enjoyed the Eddie Bauer Christmas CD collections.! They make us smile everytime!

What a great layout. Love the roosters as well.

If you've never heard Natalie Grant sing, you MUST. She has a Christmas album out too that is superb with her powerful vocals.

Lexi said...

I think my fav Christmas song is "grandma got ran over by a reindeer". My grandma used to sing when I was little and it always made me laugh. :0)

Ann said...

Natalie Merchant singing "Children Go Where I send Thee" has to be my new classic!

I love the John Denver Christmas cd and I love the alphas in this collection! Your layout is so smart, I never would have thought to do that!

mmmgleisner said...

Great idea withthe lampshades - has me thinking how can I lift this idea - My favorite Christmas CD is Mannheim Steamroller - - it gives me energy!!

Steph said...

love those lamps Em!
As for holiday music, I always recommend Barenaked Ladies Christmas CD because it makes me SO happy to bring it out year after year. Plenty of traditional songs, but there are some fun original ones too!

Stubbart Family said...

I have to say my favorite Christmas album is by Celine Dion. Nobody sings Oh Holy Night better than she does (although Josh Groban is a close second)!

LOVE the new line! I have a million ideas in my head on how I can use it!

Paper Dolls said...

My favorite Christmas song is "Mary Did You Know?: written by Mark Lowry. I personally like it sang by Kenny Rogers and Wynona Judd on Kenny Rogers Christmas album from several years ago. I love this collection! It looks like my childhood!
