Wonderful You.....A Sketch Challenge at Studio Calico

I was asked by Studio Calico to participate in their Sunday Sketch this past weekend for their blog and I was thrilled to take part! They offer two sketches each week - one a card and one a layout - and I chose the layout sketch.

I used the new Studio Calico Atlantic line (I purchased the whole entire line when I won the $100 gift card from SC during National Scrapbook Day! Hee!). I just love their new line and thought it would be perfect to use with a photo I took of my dd this past summer down on the coast. We were in the Ocean Springs harbor in front of some beautiful sailboats on a gorgeous sunny day. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the title out of some American Crafts POW glitter paper and I made some cute flags using some arrows and banner pieces from the vellum collection. In the original layout, Nicole Samuels had hand sewn across some chevrons. I cut some chevron paper into pieces and then I machine stitched in between the cut pieces instead. I also used the little anchor punch for some accents on the journal labels - I think that is just a darling punch!!

I hope you try out the sketch on the Studio Calico blog - you have a chance to win a gift card if you do! :)


  1. LOVED this LO when I saw it! Great take on the sketch!

  2. This is gorgeous Valerie. I love the blue & gold!

  3. All the patterns and colors of this collection are so awesome. I like how you put it all together for this layout.

  4. What a cool photo of Danielle - I like the arrows as flags :)
