This style is not usually seen in many of Iris' pages. Being a designer that is more keen to whimsical and romantic pages, working with Studio Calico papers were initially difficult for her. The beauty of these kinds of papers however - subdued prints with bright colours, is that it allows the photos to shine!
One other great thing with Studio Calico according to Iris is that it is easy to mix and match the different lines to make one unique look. This page uses mostly State Fair papers with with element taken from previous lines as well.

Here is another layout from Iris Uy using the older lines of Studio Calico .
Kathie loves the subdued palette of Studio Calico’s Countryside collection. It’s colourful and yet restrained which makes it extremely versatile. Kathie layered a combination of patterned papers from the collection onto a kraft cardstock background for a colourful yet masculine page. The rub-on clouds and birdies add a playful feel to the page, and team nicely with BasicGrey Hopscotch bloomers and a brightly painted Twiddleybitz whimsy bird friend.
Nicole Samuels, USA, has used the Countryside collection for this next page. Nicole used the die-cut paper from the collection as the backdrop to her page. The subtle woodgrain effect adds a touch of interest to what would otherwise be a plain cardstock background.
Nicole says she used several different sized circle and scalloped-circle punches to make the flowers from the Wildflower patterned paper sheet in the collection. The flowers look fabulous dressed up with jewels and pearls. Thanks for sharing your page with our readers, Nicole.
