The second sketch for Studio Calico’s Sketchbook 4 is FABULOUS!!
One of the designer’s layouts used buttons and tin pins rather than circled paper or diecut circles. I LOVE that idea! And I can’t wait to try it.
But, I decided to start simple first.
I just love this paper from October Afternoon! And yes, my layout is bright and busy.
But that is exactly like the little girl in the pictures. Bright, happy and extremely busy!
I used Paisley for the phrase cut at a width of 4″. Don’t you just love the ability to cut things to the perfect size? It makes life SO easy!

I trimed some additional circles from my scraps to add and continue the circle theme.

Now as soon as I catch up on ALL the other sketches I will be back with the button version of this one.
Have I mentioned I am LOVING this class?
Yes, they do!
And Hartly LOVES hers! In fact she LOVES all shoes and HAS to put them on first thing in the morning, but that is a story for another time.
I enjoyed Studio Calico’s Stretch Your Kit and Happly Litte Moments classes so much, I quickly signed up for Kelly Purkey’s Sketchbook 4 class. And it is fantastic!
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday we are given a new sketch and 4 designers’s take on it including a card. I always find it amazing how we all can start with the same basic items, but we make it our very own.
So, here is my take on Sketch One~
April’s Studio Calico kit City of Lights contents: Sassafras paper, Crate Paper’s Pretty Party Papercloth paper, BoBunny Khaki Double Dot paper, Green cardstock, twine, Crate Paper Pretty Party Brads, Sassafrass Die Cut Stikers, tags
