Studio Calico Blog Hop

it's monday! hope you had a great weekend and is all ready to start a new brand week!  today some of the sc girls and myself are up for a blog hop to share studio calico's current subscription promotion and our top 5 must haves! it's my first blog hop so i'm excited to be part of it. you should have arrived here from nicole's blog! welcome!

Lilin Fang <-- you are here!

i have been scrapping for about 2 years and playing with studio calico kits is my favourite way to scrap. my first studio calico kit is roller pink from october 2012 which means i have been a subscriber with sc for almost 1.5 years! studio calico puts together beautiful papers and embellishments that coordinate so well. this saves me a lot of time selecting products to work with since i can just create my projects with whatever is available in the kit. and i love the exclusive papers, embellishment and beautiful stamps that i cannot get from anywhere else. i also like the idea of a happy mail coming my way every month! the thought that i will have new products to play with next month also kinda reduces my tendency to hoard and encourages me to scrap more! :P

If you would like to subscribe to one of studio calico's kits, you will be happy to know that studio calico is currently having an awesome promotion! start a new subscription with march's office hours kit and receive a gift card free!!! here are the details...

also here are my top 5 faves from the studio calico shop to help you with your gift card :))

1. color theory ink - yellow - i have been stamping with black until i tried these inks! it's difficult for me to choose a favourite color here, but its amazing how brilliant this yellow looks even on white paper. click here to see all 12 colors.

2. color theory sequins - 24 karat - just like the enamel dots, sequins are a must! my favourite are these gold sequins. there are lots of colors available too but gold is an absolute must! click here to see the entire range.

3. color theory enamel dots - red - i have a craze for enamel dots. i use them in almost all my projects! my favourite are the red dots. click here to see all the colors!

4. bamboo paint brush - i have been using this brush for all my painting ever since i got them. love the soft bristles and how smooth it is to paint with this brush.

5. medium glassine bags - these glassine bags are great for layering on layouts or are perfect as envelopes for cards or small gifts.
