I am so excited to finally share my role in National Scrapbook Day at Studio Calico! I am one of several members who have been asked to host a challenge on the message boards. You can find my challenge here.
My challenge is to scraplift a card or layout. I made a 9×12 layout inspired by Steffi’s beautiful layout, Dreamer. I was drawn to her paper strips sewn onto her project. Her design is simple, yet striking! Here is my layout:
I enjoyed getting to use several of my favorite papers from past Studio Calico kits. I used zigzag stitching and straight stitching to hold them in place and then cut the sprig with my Silhouette cameo and then watercolored it subtly. I typed my journaling onto a tag and added a few details to embellish.
This layout captures our dog, George, in the bluebonnets. I look forward to the bluebonnets in Austin every spring, and this year they were particularly stunning. How are you spending National Scrapbook Day? I hope you will leave a comment below or hop on over to my challenge for a fun scraplifting challenge and chance to win a Studio Calico prize!
