introducing state fair from studio calico

i got to work with the new STUDIO CALICO state fair line for the CHA show this upcoming weekend. it's a very happy and bright collection, one that when i pulled it out of the bag, i wasn't sure i was going to be able to do anything fabulous with. i pushed paper for quite a few hours, questioning my abilities as a designer, but then i started cutting and punching with this 3-in-1 punch (as much as i've been using it lately, i may be making my fiskars' all aflutter butterfly punch jealous) and when i was done, i had two layouts i absolutely love, one for the booth at CHA and one for today's blog hop. it's kind of like a magic trick, not sure how, but studio calico always nails it with their designs, making my pages so pretty and lovely. 


for this layout, i worked with bits of the papers tickets please, guess your weight, sideshow, and step right up. i also used the label stickers in blue and the state fair line, as well as the new cardstock alpha stickers called addy in green. but my favorite part of this layout ended up being the red rub-on alphabet. so i'm giving a set away, in red! and just because i can, i'm adding the green graph rub-on butterflies. they make me happy too. check out all the great new products (including the 10 new matching mister hueys!) in the online catalog.







for my CHA booth layout, i got to feature the days of week rub-ons. i scattered them down the side of the page, using the same color blue swiss dot bazzill as the blue rubs, the tone on tone is sooooooo pretty! i also used some wooden buttons and added eyelets to each one (a bit tricky, but with the crop-a-dile, i was able to get the hang of it quickly.) i then just scattered stars, circles, and bits of paper throughout for a casual look.







please leave a comment and make sure you head over to jen's blog to see her layout and what she's chosen as 
her giveaway. tell her i said hi! if you get lost, you can always head over to the studio calico blog for links, or i've got everyone listed on the left side of my blog as well.
have fun on the rest of the hop!
