Homespun Documenter - Main Kit Only

I have tons of pages to share made with the Homespun kits from Studio Calico. But truly.. the Documenter kit and add ons were all so good!! I had purposefully held back in documenting my January, and was able to get caught up easily with all these new products. Today, I am sharing what I made with the Documenter main kit only.


This kit stretches pretty far!


I loved all the pink in the kit, but since I know not everyone is a fan, I decided to avoid pink in this main kit spread, so I chose teal and red as my main colors, with some black.


The silver foil on the card I used for the title is so pretty! I did some creative use of the alphabet letters - since there was only one "w", I used the "n"s instead.


I used those pretty kraft labels with silver foil accents throughout the spread as a cohesive accent.


I love how the gray rubber word pops against this red card! Oh and a PSA - use staples to attach these rubber pieces, it looks like glue dots have a messy reaction, while staples work great.


I loved the card that said "good times", but it had a bit too much white space, so I cut out the circle and layered it on top of the woodgrain card, and added my journaling around it. I also used the hang from the stamp set to turn the circle into a framed piece.


There is a lovely set of kraft labels with silver foil in the kit, and I decided to use the leftover backing as a background for this card. Since I like to use up my scraps, I backed it with a couple of pieces I had left over from cutting some cards. I love how it turned out!


The rubber pieces in the kit are adorable as is, but you can stretch them even further by using them as a stencil. Here, I used some Studio Calico mist to spray over the word in red.


I loved the "boss" card in the kit, but it was too black for my taste, so I just cut out the sentiment and layered it on top of another card. I also cut apart the black card and layered it on top of the other one.


The silkscreen that comes in the kit is so much fun! Seriously.. so pretty! I used it a few times here with black paint - it's so easy to customize your cards! As part of the kit, you can also pick a color of paint out of three options. Here, I used black to stick to my color scheme.


The stamp set is really cute and versatile - I used it throughout the spread, and here as well.

I love how you've used this kit, particularly the use of the leftover backing with the silver accents and the 'good times' circle on the wood grain! A really eye catching and creative spread, thanks for sharing! I can't wait to receive my kit! Hope you're having a great weekend!
