Aye Calypso!


The Calypso paper pack has a total of 12 patterned papers, so these pages use far more patterned paper and fewer sheets of cardstock. Two of the pages are cut apart cards in 4×6 and 3×4 sizes. I loved using these on the layouts as titles and journaling blocks. Additionally, I’ve used the fun Calypso washi tape with pineapples and flamingos as well as trendy pink and white and striped sequins on these pages.

I’ve added extra sheets of White and Canary cardstock, along with thin cuts and stamped images from the Tickled Pink stamp sets on these pages.

Come join me Saturday or Sunday, May 28th and 29th to have fun creating these layouts!
Cost: $25 for 8 pages

The kit can also be ordered to go so that you may assemble the pages at home if you are unable to join a workshop. Contact me to arrange pick up or the postage amount. RSVP by January 14th so that I may order materials for you….
