The One with Studio Calico OFFICE HOURS Layouts


Thursday, February 27, 2014

It's the 27th! It's reveal day at Studio Calico! Woooo to the hooooo! 
I don't know how they do it, but every month the kits get better and better. So much so that I made 5 layouts instead of the usual 4 this month :) I'll share them in the order that I created them:

YOU ARE by Paige Evans

Description: I had so much fun designing this "YOU ARE" exclusive Studio Calico cut file background!
Of course I had to use it on one of my layouts :) I used only the To Do add on kit to create this entire layout.

Journaling says: I like to think about the day we met - January 22nd 2004. It's been ten years since that fateful day in our shared Art History class! Can you believe all that has happened since then? 2 kids, dental school, moving across the world... The best is yet to come! I love you!

How to: Die cut the "You Are" background from white cardstock, trim off the edges, then adhere it on a cloud patterned paper background. Arrange embellishments in a heart on the center of the layout and sew a heart over to keep everything in place. Add more embellishments like badges, enamel dots, and sequins to the heart. Layer a photo over vellum die cuts and add a Thickers title on the right.

HAPPY SPRING by Paige Evans

Description: I sure do love using my Silhouette Cameo to make layouts! I enlarged the flower stamp cut file to make the background on this layout.

Journaling says: Spring comes early in sunny SoCal :)

How to: Die cut a large sunburst flower from scrap cardstock then use the petals as templates to cut them from patterned paper; arrange the papers on a blue cardstock layout. Sew several circles around the middle of the flower to keep all the papers in place. Layer a tag and two photos on the middle then stamp the date and journal at the bottom of the tag. Stitch the wood veneer buttons with yellow floss and add them to the center of the flower. Place blue foam Thickers and a watercolor paper "SPRING" die cut around the photos. Add trios of colored enamel dots on the paper petals. Drop white spray mist over the top left and bottom right corners.

LITTLE RAD DUDE by Paige Evans

Description: Another cut file layout! What can I say? :) I multiplied the "+" sign into staggered rows to create a custom background.

Journaling says: Fox - you've always been such a fun kid - always up for adventures and wanting to try new things. You have a zest for life and we love that and you!

How to: Die cut plus signs from the top portion of a gray cardstock layout then back each "+" with patterned paper. Adhere three photos across the bottom of the layout. Make a paper banner, top it with foam Thickers and a watercolor paper word, then adhere it over the bottom of the photos. Journal below the title. Stitch wood veneer buttons with different colors of floss and stick them around the layout in a visual triangle. Add enamel dots and foam sticker shapes to the centers of some of the plus signs. Drop black spray mist over the top left and bottom right corners.

WHAT'S WRONG DARLINGS? by Paige Evans

Description: I'll never tire of paper weaving! This tim I tried with with super thin pieces of paper to change things up a bit.

Journaling says: For some reason unbeknownst to me both of you were so super sad before church! Usually you're such happy campers! But I understand we all have our moments. I love you!

How to: Trim all the papers from all of the Office Hours and add on kits into 1/8" strips then weave them; adhere the weaving onto a white cardstock background. Layer die cut doilies, a shipping tag, photo, and vellum shapes on the left side. Add word stickers, chipboard letters, a gold word sticker, chevron border sticker, mini heart trio sticker, chipboard stars, and more over the doilies. Stamp the date below the photo. Drop black spray mist over the top left and bottom right sides. Journal on the top left and bottom right sides.

THINKING OF YOU JUST BECAUSE by Paige Evans

Description: After spending lots of time on each of the above layouts, I wanted to create a layout in 15 minutes of less. I combined to cut files into one to create this large sentiment die cut! It's so pretty it just had to backed with floral paper. And I was excited to scrap these pictures of my and Chris at Romeo and Juliet's balcony in Verona, Italy!

Journaling says: It was so fun and surreal to stand at Juliet's balcony with my very own Romeo :)

How to: Die cut a large sentiment down the middle of a woodgrain paper layout. Back the die cut with floral paper. Adhere a photo on the left and right edges and embellish with vellum pinked circles, acetate butterflies, flower stickers, jewels, enamel dots, sequins, stamped butterflies, a hearts border sticker, and more as shown. Add mini alphabet stickers and a gold chipboard geotag under the left photo and journal below them. Drop white spray mist over the top left and bottom right corners.
