Studio Calico Sunday Sketch

I was so excited a couple of weeks ago when Nicole Harper at Studio Calico invited me to do a layout for their Sunday Sketch today. She sent me the sketches and off I went to create a layout.

Credits: Studio Calico Block Party scrapbook kit; Darling Dear Vellum die cut shapes; Simon Says Stamp "Just A Love Note" clear stamp set; Simple Stories letter stickers; Evalicious badge button, tags, labels, rubber stamps; Freckled Fawn washi tapes; The Twinery Caribbean twine; One Little Bird Designs digital kits

As strange as it sounds, I had never used a sketch to do a paper layout before! I’ve used Photoshop templates a-plenty for digital layouts, and even created and sold them for a couple of years. But this was new territory! :)

This is the sketch I used. I took the basic structure and flipped it upside down.


The big arrow circle, envelopes, and the adorable luggage are all One Little Bird digital elements I printed out and cut. The airplane and potty people circles (and the I ♥ banner) are Evalicious stamps. The circle stamps were exactly 1” and I punched them out with a circle punch!

More Evalicious and One Little Bird goodies.


I adore the Typeset alphabet stickers from Simple Stories Sn@p line. I cut out the “anywhere” with my Silhouette and machine stitched it to the layout. Another stitch across the top of the border and I was done!
