Sunday Sketch | Mandie Pierce

This week our scrapbook sketch is a 12" x 12" layout featuring a photo over layers in the upper left corner, offset by heavy journaling with embellishments on the right-hand side. Our card sketch has a stamped patterned background with a center title. And our pocket page sketch features two 3" x 4" title cards with embellishments. Creative Team member Mandie Pierce is joining us this week and sharing her take on the week's scrapbook sketch! Be sure to follow Mandie here at SC to see more of her work and keep up with her.

Our scrapbook sketch comes from Mandie Pierce's Love This Tale layout:

Our card sketch comes from Carson Riutta's Avian Love card:

And our pocket page sketch comes from Juli Maniago's Sunday Magic - Main Kit Only spread:

And here's Mandie's take on our scrapbook sketch:

Hi! Mandie here with the sketch for you. I love working with sketches. The scrapbook sketch this month was based on a layout I had made for the Written in the Stars Kits. I was partial to that layout; so I was excited to get a chance to repeat the design.

This time, I went biggerwith the paper and with the title. I just love those alphas in the Scrapbook Kit! I scaled all of the pattern papers larger. As a result of the larger title and larger papers, I had to move the journaling from the side to under the photo. 

One of my favorite parts of this layout are the little bits tucked here and there on and between the pattern papers.

Now it's your turn! Make a project using one of this week's sketches as a starting point, then share it in the Studio Calico gallery.

    I love how you layered the letters atop one another,takes up less real estate.

    I love the scrapbook sketch and Mandie's layout. I had to move the journaling to accommodate a 9x12 page.

    I picked up this barn stamp set at a recent sale and this card sketch inspired me to use it.

    Fun layout sketch! And a great take on Mandie's sketch by Mandie herself. Both projects inspired my page: https://www.studiocalico.com/galleries/203612-fly-solo
