My first-ever Studio Calico Project Life Kit arrived this week. Talk about happiness being delivered to your door!
The Cirque Project Life Kit by Studio Calico is fun and daring yet lovely in every way. With this being my first kit subscription, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Once you see and feel something, you “know”. Oh Cirque, be still my beating heart.
I activated my Studio Calico Project Life Kit subscription last week Thursday, and it was at my door on Monday! That little package turned a blah Monday around in a hurry. I have never subscribed to a kit company before. I’ve thought about it many times, but I was too afraid to commit. With that being said, based on rave reviews of Studio Calico kits by fellow scrapbookers I was moved to take the plunge. Not to mention that their website is nothing short of dreamy. I love it when a website lures me in and keeps me coming back for more.
What I Love About Studio Calico and Why I Chose To Subscribe
While there are certainly many reasons to love Studio Calico Kits, these are my top 5:
- They offer three main kits each month: a Scrapbook kit, a Card kit and a Project Life kit.
- Their kits have an amazing array of products-every single one of them!
- Their kits are unique, fresh, modern with a vintage twist, and inspiring.
- They offer the option to purchase kits as a one-time only or via monthly subscription.
- They offer irresistible add-on kits to stretch the creativity of the three main kits. Genius!
I decided to subscribe to the Studio Calico Project Life Kit because I love the idea of someone else doing the hard part—selecting and coordinating the products. For $19.99 (plus S&H), I get an insanely creative kit filled with Project Life Journaling Cards and oodles of Embellishments. Do you have any idea how long it would take me to: 1) find all of this stuff in my local craft store and, 2) have the time and energy left to coordinate the stuff into something as productive as a Studio Calico Kit? Just the thought of that makes $19.99 a steal for me!
Bringing My Cirque Project Kit To Life
I had to wait a whole three days to put my Cirque Kit to a Project Life spread. By Wednesday, I could resist no more. With the entire lot of kit goodies spread out on my crafting table, I was ready. It was finally time to add photos and bring my Cirque Project Life Kit to life. Bonjour Cirque Goodness!
After completing these two pages, I still have more than enough supplies left to create with. There are a number of cards in Cirque that have to do with February so I put these cards to the side with the intention of taking specific February photos to use with them.
Here’s the bonus: The February-themed cards in the Cirque kit that I did not use in these two layouts acted as a prompt for me to document something amazing from the future February which just happens to include a weekender to the windy city this weekend!
In summary, Cirque met and exceeded my expectations in terms of creativity and quality of products. I am even more excited about my monthly subscription after receiving the Cirque Kit. I cannot wait to receive Odyssey. The Studio Calico Sneak Peeks are such teasers!
Until next time,
