I’m getting excited about the August Studio Calico kit (Summer of 69) which is due to arrive on the 8th, so I have to get cracking on using up the rest of my Elmwood Park kit. Here’s a layout that I had planned on layering a lot, but it ended up going in another direction:
|This is my 4th layout using the Elmwood Park kit and Monkey Bars add-on (Studio Calico)|

I am trying to use my Cameo a bit more, so I cut that Chevron Balloon (a Studio Calico cut that goes with the Elmwood park kit) out of red, re-cut the letters for “fun” out of blue, then layered it onto a piece of paper bag. It’s so much fun to cut your own embellishments to the size you want, and I love that you can customize your cuts using the Silhouette software.
|Most of the elements on this layout come from the kit|
The grey trim was given to me by Sherry (thanks!!) and I just love all the texture and dimension it adds here. the buttons are October Afternoon, from the kit, and the hexagon shaped sunbursts are leftovers from a previous SC kit. I added some Prima word stickers to them for a bit more interest.
