For those of you who are new to Project Life, you may be wondering what Studio Calico has to do with Project Life. If you’re already in-the-know, you can ignore the rest of this post.  : )


We have a partnership with kit experts Studio Calico to offer a monthly Project Life kit subscription delivering inspiration right to your door. The kits contain a variety of beautiful journaling cards, stamps, and embellishments allowing you to make your spreads as simple or as intricate as you like. This is especially great for those who love to get a little creative with their scrapbooking because the kits come with some really fun add-on items.

Each month Studio Calico acts as your personal shopper by curating the supplies you need to do your spreads each month. Don’t worry about getting overwhelmed with a ton of product piling up. Studio Calico sends you just the amounts you need. Each kit contains perfectly coordinating items from the industry’s leading designers and suppliers. Many of the items in a Project Life kit are exclusive and cannot be found anywhere else. It’s not uncommon to see an exclusive stamp set by brands like Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, Tim & Beck, Life. Love. Paper., Hello Forever and more! If you see something you like, be sure to grab it up quickly because often they sell out within hours of being released on Reveal Night.

Need inspiration? Studio Calico’s Creative Team (separate from our Creative Team) works hard each month to bring you inspiring spreads showing you just some of the possibilities with each kit. Each team member has her own style and level of complexity in her projects. Love journaling? You’ll love seeing the stories Ali Edwards is telling in her gallery each month. Are colors and clean design more your speed? Amy Tan always impresses in how she uses her beautiful photography with bold colors to preserve the moments.

    I am very new to this , my first time actually using the kits. I love the idea of a kit and can’t wait to get it, the only thing I am hesitant about is the deer that seems to a
    Pear everywhere. I would have absolutely no use for that, don’t hunt, don’t eat deer but they seem to be all over NJ….I hope there is not too much focus on the deer in this kit , crossing my fingers lol

      I thought the same thing! We do have deer in the part of Australia where I live, but it is rare to see them. Perhaps I could put a red nose on the card and scrap some of my recent Christmas photos ;)

    I’m so glad you posted about this!! I’m new to Project Life, just receiving my first album, pages, and core kit for Christmas this year. I’ve been seeing stuff about Studio Calico, but I never understood how they fit together. Thank you for spelling it out!! :)

    I have just ordered this, I hope it doesn’t take to long to get across the big pond…lol

    I’ve been coveting these kits for a long time and finally subscribed. I agree though…what is WITH deer being everywhere? And owls and mustaches. Trends I don’t understand and won’t use. I see them everywhere so someone obviously likes them, I guess.

  6. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something. I believe that you simply can do with a few percent to pressure the message home a bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
