Sunday Sketch | Kelly Noel

This week our scrapbook sketch is a 9" x 12" layout featuring a centered square photo over a diagonal scattering of hexagon- and heart-shaped embellishments. Our card sketch has an organic stamped pattern on the upper left-hand side of the card with a sentiment in the opposite corner. And our pocket page sketch features a 3" x 4" filler card with journaling strips and a 3" x 4" photo with small embellishments. Creative Team member Kelly Noel is joining us this week and sharing her take on the week's scrapbook sketch! Be sure to follow Kelly here at SC to see more of her work and keep up with her.

Our scrapbook sketch comes from Catherine Davis's You Are My Home layout:

Our card sketch comes from Carson Riutta's Happy Fall Y'all card:

And our pocket page sketch comes from Pam Baldwin's Let's Stay Inside spread:

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

I love working with sketches, it's one of my favorite ways to get started on a page! I fell in love with the scrapbook sketch this week. Catherine always creates the most striking designs, so it was a no brainer to use her sketch. I used the "Northern Lights" Scrapbook Kit and a few pieces of the Arctic add-on kit to create this page. 

I kept the main elements on my page the same as they were in the sketch. The title beneath the photo that was placed right in the center of the page. I scattered snowflakes and epoxy circles instead of the hexagons on Catherine's layout. I love the way this leads your eye across the page.

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. Use the hashtag #SCsketch to make it easier for other members to find! Leave us a link to your project by December 18th in the comments here to be entered to win a $5 gift card to Studio Calico Shop. This week's sketch winner will be announced in the December 23rd Layout of the Week post.

    Needed to get a card made and mailed ASAP. Fairground card kit is always the solution!
