Studio Calico June Kit- Galileo

This fun Studio Calico Kit had an amazing mix of black and white with bright colors. What's better then that? It's probably been my favorite kit all year. I only got the Project Life Kit this month and adored it. The Studio Calico Project Life Kit is the best. I have gotten it for almost 2 years now! Isn't that nuts? You can also use this kit for planners, scrapbook pages and so much more. I devour it every month. 


This is my favorite layout I made with this kit. I wanted this Project Life spread to be all about color. I was documenting the last days of school and start of summer and we were so excited about it. I love the neon colors, it fit this week perfectly. 

Here's a closer look at each page.

My daughter has a cute shirt that says, "Party like a Pineapple" and it kind of became our theme for the summer. She has it on in the top right picture above. I had to high light it on a fun card. We are so excited for summer!

I also really wanted to show that you can use the Project Life Kit to make regular layouts as well. I loved the ice cream cone cards and wanted to display them on a fun summery page. I also used the 4 x 6 paper pack to add some layering on the right. 

Sweet Summer Time

This is a pretty Project Life spread I did using some of the black and white cards from the kit. I also aded in a pop of pink from my Heidi Swapp Favorite Things Project Life Core Kit that I bought to use for the whole year. I add some of it in here and there through out my layout to help it feel cohesive. This layout is from the week of mother's day. We got a ton of snow. It was crazy. 

Happy Mother's Day

These were some of my favorite cards from the kit. Aren't then stunning? 

I used one for a title card here, and was so happy they had more in the 4 x 6 paper pad. I love getting all the patterns in that pad. It's awesome. 

Here's one more Project Life Spread of some of our fun summer memories. We played basketball, painted, and kept it real by partying like a pineapple! ;)


How's your summer been? 

Fun Kid's Art Day

Today's summer art project was as simple as it was fun! Simply buy a bunch of sponges and cut out shapes. Then dip in paint and create beautiful pictures. We brain stormed some different ideas for pictures and the kids were really creative in how to put shapes together to make pictures. This is a great project to put your kids creativity to the test. 

 For paper we used small poster boards I found at the grocery store. I liked that the poster boards were thicker and could take the paint. You could also get the regular size poster boards and cut them in half. 

They used paint brushes as well as sponges for a few pages.

This one is a boat pulling a tube, since we went boating this summer. 

These ones are house and flowers

Aren't they all so beautiful and fun? Grab some sponges and paint and have fun!
