NSD 2015 with Studio Calico

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!

  1. Yay, congratulations! The LO looks really great and I just love your stitching. I didn’t get much time to play for NSD but still hope to do your challenge even if it is too late 🙂
