The One with the Studio Calico Camelot Layout & Video

Thursday, May 22, 2014

I have a layout featuring the Studio Calico May CAMELOT kits with a start-to-finish how to video up on the Studio Calico blog today! And I'm sharing it here as well :)

Description: For this layout I wanted to create a sunburst look to go along with being outside in the warm sunshine, relaxing at a pool. I love using patterned papers so I used as many as I could from the May kits to create a pieced background.

Journaling says: The first time you ever put your feetsies in a pool was at Indio, CA with our good friends the Bybees. You were pretty indifferent to the experience so we stayed in the water for a bit and then you took a nap :)

How to: Punch four 1" squares from each patterned papers in the Camelot kits (CAMELOTEXCALIBURGUINEVEREMERLIN by Studio Calico) then fold two opposite corners of each square to the middle. Trace a small bowl or round object on the center of a robin's egg blue cardstock layout. Adhere the patterned paper pieces in circles around the middle. Stitch straight lines down each row of papers to emphasize the sunburst. Embellish the paper pieces with buttons, sequins, and epoxy flower stickers. Create a title around the top left and bottom right corners.  Die cut a frame from white cardstock, trim it in half, and adhere the halves by the titlework. Journal in the die cut circles. Drop white spray mist around the journaling. There are a few more things and there, all of which you can see in this start-to-finish how to video:
