scrapbook layout: just us

This morning I checked out the Sunday Sketch on the Studio Calico blog, and I instantly fell in love with the layout sketch and the awesome layout it was based on by Elizabeth Kartchner. Now you have to understand that I am a very slow scrapper... like a whole day just to think about what I want to make, then a while picking out the photos, and then actually putting it together? Hours and hours. But I was so inspired by this layout I immediately grabbed some photos that I had printed earlier and got to work. The whole layout took me about an hour! And I got to play with the new Underground scrapbook kit which I absolutely love!! So here's my take on the sketch and Elizabeth's layout.

The stamp originally said "just go" but since my layout isn't really about going anywhere, I used washi tape to cover "go". Then I covered everything but "us" and stamped again. Just be sure to remove the washi before stamping because ink will transfer from the washi onto your project.

Sketches or scraplifting are the way to go when you want to speed up the process! Studio Calico publishes sketches every Sunday. If you create something with any of the sketches, be sure to link your project in the Studio Calico gallery to the Sunday blog post for a chance to win a $5 gift card!
