Best of 2013 Minibook using Crate Paper and Studio Calico

I bought this adorable clipboard mini-album from Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper around this time last year.  I finally had the chance to use it for my Best of 2013 mini.  To keep a consistency to the pages, I chose to print all the images in a square ratio in black and white and go from there.  I used a lot of paper and embellishments from Maggie's Line as well as some items from Studio Calico and October Afternoon.

I really love this album, and I had a blast making it!

Here's the cover:

And some of my favorite pages:



Some of my favorite supplies:  Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper Frames, Papers, Ephemera Pack, Tag Sheet, Cardstock Sticker Sheet, Alpha Sticker Sheet, and Studio Calico Vellum Embellishments, Journal Cards, and alphas from their Print Shop Line.

I have really loved Studio Calico's recent collaborations with script artist Kal Barteski.  The stamps, the script cards, and the cut files....it's all simply gorgeous.  The good news is that Kal will be teaching the February class at Studio Calico. How awesome is THAT!  You can sign up here.

Here's more information about the class:

Project Life Week 48 : Studio Calico Copper Mountain

Week 48 was Halloween week. It was a yucky rainy Halloween here, so I didn't have many pictures from that day.

I used the gorgeous Copper Mountain Project Life Kit for this layout. The colors and embellishments in the kit are really versatile this month, and this month is definitely one of my favorites of all time.  I also used some of the digital printables this month as well.  You can find those here and here and the digital templates I used here.
