This layout was created from a sketch from Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook 2 class over at Studio Calico. Speaking of Studio Calico...have you seen the peeks for September's kit? I have never purchased one of their kits before and I will be getting this and at least the add on with the butterfly stamps.
Why you say?
Because I have been wanting to purchase a kit for quite some time and this seemed like the month to do it.
AND...the aforementioned butterfly stamps coordinate with the Martha Stewart Butterfly punches. Happiness I tell you. Pure happiness.
This layout was loosely created using Sketch 5 from the class.
I used some older Imaginisce papers to color block my background. I punched a couple of borders using the Fiskars Upper Crest border punch. This is one of my all-time favorite punches.
Yes, I used cloud patterned paper again. Don't judge.
I thought it would be fun to create a border with a bunch of layered tags to run the length of the page. I used tags from Creative Cafe, Little Yellow Bicycle and October Afternoon.
Those Creative Cafe tags? They are 50% off at 2peas. I adore these.
I added some stamping to one of the tags using some Ali Edwards stamps. I simply can't get enough of these stamps. The versatility is amazing.
To complete the visual triangle on the page I added a couple more tags tucked behind one of the photos.
The photo actions I used on these?
All from the Pioneer Woman. You can get yours HERE. I used the Soft & Faded action for my photos.
The color was bad on the originals. Bad camera back in 2002. Or maybe it was just the girl using it had no idea what she was doing? No, it had to be the camera.
