Studio Calico SONNET Layouts

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Happy to be contributing to the Studio Calico November kits! This month is called SONNET and all of the kits are simply stunning. Here are the two layouts I made for the Creative Team Gallery:

DESCRIPTION: This layout was inspired by the rainbow hearts paper in the Sonnet scrapbook kit! I saw them, fell in love with them, then fussy cut them.

JOURNALING SAYS: We are so incredibly proud of you for finishing three years of pre-school! Bring on kindergarten! You are so smart and love to learn and ask questions and you're already such a great reader! But most of all you love to color which warms our artsy hearts.

HOW TO: Fussy cut all the hearts. Cut a heart from scrap cardstock and use it as a template to draw three hearts on a white cardstock background. Fill in the big hearts with the colored hearts then hand stitch around them using white floss to help define the edges. Place a small photo in each heart layered on a die cut and embellished with more die cuts. Add "seriously cheers" transparency words on the left and journal above.

SUPPLIES: Scrapbook kit: Sonnet by Studio Calico; Floss: DMC; Pen, adhesive: American Crafts

DESCRIPTION: I used the cards from the Documenter kit as patterned paper since I don't really do "Project Life" - this here blog is my "Project Life" :)

JOURNALING SAYS: Lately you've been saying things that just don't make any sense whatsoever! For example: "I can't know how!" "I didn't do nutthing!" "Where are we going when we sleep?" "What happens if you put a teapot on your head?" "Stop coffeeing me!" Where are you learning these funny phrases? Probably YouTube :) Love you silly sweet Jan!

HOW TO: Punch speech bubbles from the Documenter cards and then adhere them to a pink cardstock background. Make room for a photo and layer it over a floral transparency. Add a letter sticker to each speech bubble and add fussy cut flowers, die cuts, stickers, star die cuts, and puffy heart stickers to the mix. Journal with a pencil at the top.

SUPPLIES: Scrapbook and Documenter kits: Sonnet by Studio Calico; Pencil: Bic; Adhesive: American Crafts
