Studio Calico: Inspires | Giveaways + Freebies Too!

This is going to be one lulu of a day, but you’re not going to want to miss a thing. So sit back with your favorite beverage and enjoy!

I have to say that Studio Calico has got to be my all-time favorite places to go for inspiration.

hands down.

They have the magic touch for bringing products together to create gorgeous kits each month. And then with their own products they make?


I only have a handful of blogs that I check each day and this is one of them. So when they asked me if I wanted to participate in a blog hop? Welllll, you bet your sweet bippy I wanted to!

Their fresh style and their creatively talented designers (product+page) make me go ahhhhh every time I see something new. They inspire me greatly.

A few months ago I bought these Color Theory sequins that were absolutely delightful! I put them into a clear divided container and looking at them makes me happy. How can it not?


( There’s a little Teresa Collins mixed in there–the four at the left in the center. )


That is just one little grouping of happiness right there. Makes me smile every time I open my drawer…obviously I leave it on top of all my other goodies because it’s just too darn pretty not to see each time it’s opened.

Studio Calico is a company that’s got it goin’ on.

They inspire me–literally–every day.

And I love the ledger paper and map and book paper in their latest monthly kit, The Underground. Have you seen it? If, not here’s a peek.

And don’t even get me started on those little wooden letters.


Okay, so that’s all awesome, right? Now how would you like some freebies? I think that’s a rhetorical question, because who doesn’t want something for free? :)

Freebie #1:

Check out this amazing artwork from Studio Calico!  It’s yours with just a click of a button HERE.


Freebie #2:

With this blog hop, Studio Calico also inspired me to create this freebie for y’all. Cut files and PNG.


To download this–forever free–click HERE.

I think I could just gush and gush about these guys all day. And I’m off to a good start, right? ;)

Well, just when you thought the day couldn’t get any better, I have TWO giveaways to tell you about!


Giveaway #1


Studio Calico is giving away over $1,400 in prizes drawn from the people who download that printable. The prizes get bigger and bigger the more uses of the #scinspires hashtag. So the key to sweetening the pot is to use this hashtag and talk about what inspires you!

Studio Calico will add up all the uses and update everyone their blog every Friday on how they are progressing. Here’s a short list. But it will grow as the shares grows:

100 shares of #scinspires = 1 Month Free Sub 
200 shares of #scinspires = 2 Months Free Sub (additional month continues every 100 shares)
1,200 shares of #scinspires = 12 Month Free Sub 
1,300 shares of #scinspires = Entrance into Cameo Basics 
1,500 shares of #scinspires = $100 Free Digital Downloads 
2,000 shares of #scinspires = Silhouette Portrait 
2,500 shares of #scinspires = 25 lucky winners will receive a free month WITH a Gold WRMK album!

To be entered to win: 
Studio Calico will select winners from the folks who download the printable. So be sure to use the links here to do just that.

Also be sure to share all the ways that Studio Calico inspires you on Instagram using the hashtag #SCInspires, because the more hashtags there are, the more they’ll give away…and we all want more.  ;)

Contest ends 10/31/14 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time.
