This is seriously the highlight of my year. I am so geeked to finally share that I am a part of the 2013 Studio Calico Project Life Creative Team.

I can hardly believe that my name is amongst all of this talent. Check out the list!
If you were not aware, Becky Higgins, the mastermind behind Project Life, made several big announcements a couple months ago. One of them was that she was teaming up with Studio Calico to create a monthly Project Life kit.

Studio Calico asked if I'd be interested in joining their team, I screamed said YES + now I can finally talk about it!

If you aren't familiar with how the Studio Calico kit club works, each month on the 13th at midnight, they show some sneak peeks of next month's kits - a scrapbook kit, a card kit, several add-ons and now, the Project Life kit. Tonight is sneak night for the January kits and this is a little glimpse of what I did with the very first Project Life kit.
Fun, right? You can see more sneaks of all of the January kits here.

The full contents of the kit will be revealed and available for purchase on the 28th and you can get more info about subscribing to get your very own Project Life kit each month here. Of course, with most new things come a lot of questions. I know I had a ton. Here is a fantastic thread on the Studio Calico message board that answers those questions about the new PL kit.

And with that, Happy Friday to you! If you are new to my blog, hello + welcome! I am so happy you are here! If you'd like to see a little bit more of me, my scrapbooking style, and the projects I've been working on lately, you can see my 2012 Project Life posts here, including a round-up post I wrote earlier this week. I run a small Etsy shop, prompt, full of Project Life inspired stamps. I've also been working on my December Daily album and you can see my progress so far here. And last but not least, you can always see what I'm up to on Twitter + Instagram. I'm nicolereaves pretty much everywhere.

Have a great weekend!
