Hi everyone! I am loving the addition of the digital store at Studio Calico and the silhouette cuts are so fun to use for Project Life. In this tutorial, I'll show you how I used some of the silhouette cuts to put together some quick and simple pre-made journaling cards. You can easily make some pre-made cards too so that you can use them whenever you want for your Project Life! Let's get started.
We were excited to see how Julie (juleshollis) interpreted the sketch for herself, and it looks fabulous!
Here is what Julie had to say about this particular sketch:
I love playing with sketches and approach them as recipe for a project. For this sketch, I really wanted to use a favorite picture. The picture that I chose of my husband and son is vertical, so I decided to turn the sketch sideways. I didn't stray too far away from the sketch in terms of design. I used the November kit - Sock Hop with two papers from Penny Loafers (the red hearts) and from Poodle Skirt (the yellow triangles). My favorite way to make little banner pieces is to fold washi tape in half and then snip the end piece at angle. I love how this sketch helped me create lots of layers.
We love that all of Julie's elements draw your attention to the beautiful photo of her family, and the repetition of the 'flags'...what a great idea to use washi tape!Please check out the rest of Julie's work in her SC Gallery and on her blog.
How will YOU use this sketch? Whether it's a layout, a card or something else, link us up to your project by December 3rd for a chance to win a $5 gift card to the Studio Calico shop. (Please remember, your project must be loaded into our gallery to qualify...and your comment has to link back to it in the SC Gallery)

Hi everyone! It's Geralyn here today, with a spotlight on one of my favorite new items from the Classic Calico V.3 collection, the Sotheby's thickers! They come in classic ledger (my favorite!), charcoal, and the mistable version and they are my current go-to alphas. I love the font and the fact that there are both smaller and larger letters in a set. The different sized alphas are really fun to mix together.
