Hi Everyone! I have a layout for you today featuring the Floral Stack cut file. I cut the file in 2 sizes, but only used one of the flowers from the smaller cut.
I spritzed the black cut files with white paint to soften the colour and backed them with watercolour papers.
For the smaller single flower (which I cut off the stack), I painted the watercolour background because I couldn't find the colours I wanted.
The Floral Stack cut file can be found here: http://cliquekits.com/shop/digital/
I love this cut file! I hope this layout will inspire you to try it!
Hey Clique Kits Friends, Rachel here!
Today I have a layout created using the gorgeous Seneca Falls kit and the November sketch by CK. I usually only scrap one photo per layout so this was a good way to get more photos onto my page!
And here is what I created.
How cute is my cat, he will get into every container, box he can find and my new rotten basket for my craft room was no exception! I have followed the sketch pretty much in every detail and no cut files which is unusual for me.
I have used the black corrugated card as my base papered then added white card stock at 11 inches square.
I chose three of the patterned papers from the AT Shine On collection, choosing the colours that went with my photos the best. Once I had layered there I added the larger photo with foam tape. I then added the smaller one which I matted on a square of the wood grain paper and again with foam tape. Adding foam tape to elements means I can tuck embellishments under if I haven't a firm plan for my layout.
I created an embellishment cluster starting under the smallest photo. I added die cuts from the ephemera pack, enamel hearts from the kit and a phrase sentiment.
How cute are the paper clips from the Shine On collection! I added a flower cluster under the larger photo and built my title by adding the Kraft die cut from the pack and then added the 'cute' paper clip. For my journalling, as in the sketch I added phrase stickers and later I will go back and add some hand written journalling.
To finish off I added a splatter of black color shine and used some black/white bakers twin to add to the bottom of my layout (breaking up the white).
I look forward to seeing what you create using the sketch and this months kit so do # CliqueKits or add to The Clique group FB page.nThank you for stopping by today and see you again soon.
Hello Lovelies! It's Theresa here with a pocket page layout for you, using the November 2018 Seneca Falls kit! This kit was filled with Amy Tangerine goodies and her products always inspire me to use them in my pocket pages. Today I am working in my 2013 album and have created a layout for Week 15. Take a look!
Our stories for that week included the bombing at the Boston Marathon, my husband having to take a trip there for a client, and lots of t-ball with the kiddos.
I am loving the gold cut apart sheet, so I used that for my date card. The black alphabet set contrasts beautifully against the gold. There were also some fun icons in that alphabet, so I used some of the arrows to embellish a bit.
It seems hard to believe the Boston bombing was five years ago. At the time my husband had several clients and technicians who lived and worked there, and he was called up to travel there the day after the bombing. We live in NC, so fairly distant, but felt the impact of that tragedy even here, of course. We took the approach that he should go and support his clients and technicians in any way possible, without fear, and that is what he did. He took photos while he was there, which I am so thankful for.
I don't always add current events to my pocket page layouts, but this one impacted us in a way, and I am glad to include it. I took the Boston Strong logo from Google photos and included it as a tribute to what happened, and layered it very simply using some of the die cut ephemera pieces.
We were so happy to have him return home safely. I have also used some of the exclusive designs on my layout, including the 3x4 cards designed by Gia Lau! My second page is all about t-ball.
At the time both Nick and Natalie were taking t-ball at our local YMCA, and, well, Natalie has some stories to tell from her experiences. Because of my own schedule I wasn't able to attend all her games and practices, so I represented her time on the team here. I also told the story of how she showed herself quite the temperamental firecracker: she threw temper tantrums and during one of them she threw another kids' helmet! Ah, team sports are great learning experiences, aren't they?
I have used the gold cut apart sheet once again on this side, to tie that element in. I also used my circle and hexagon punches to add layering pieces. Notice how on the top photo I punched the hexagon and it cut a portion of the design off, so I added puffy hearts to cover that up.
I also repeated the black and white elements on this side by using a bit more of the days of the week strip and the All About It journaling spot. So many fun elements in this layout!
Thank you for joining me today! See you again soon!
Hi friends! I created an autumn layout in my travel notebook using an amazing leaf wreath and stickers Shine On in the November kit.
I cut a wreath in half and pasted it on two pages.
Hello, friends! Today Ksenia is here and I want to share with you my new layout using pieces from May, June and July kits.
I used some stickers, washi tape and die cut.
Hello crafty friends! Rita here again to share a layout I created using the Cut File „Ocean Waves“. I know, I know, you probably all prepare your December Dailys by now. (Me included!) But I HAD to make a layout using this super pretty Cut File, plus I really miss summer and while reminiscing about my last trip to the sea the idea for this layout was born.
I love to play with colors. Thus I made an acrylic paint based background for the Cut File. I used three colors: white, pale and dark blue, mixed them on the paper and added some splashes. After the drying everything came together quite quickly. The Cut File, my photo, some embellishments from my stash and my title. I really like how my layout turned out, and even if the weather and temperature outside don't match. Summer is a state of mind! :-)
Alright, and now off to my christmassy stuff I go… I hope you feel inspired to use a non-seasonal Cut File once in a while… Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!
Hi Everyone! Happy Friday! Here's some inspiration to hopefully get you scrapping over the weekend. I have used the November Leafy Wreath cut file and one of the gorgeous Shine On papers from the November kit.
My wee granddaughter was on holiday in Rarotonga with her family when she found this pretty flower to give Mum. Even though the November cut files and papers are Autumn themed, they still can be perfect for those of us heading into summer.
I cut the Leafy Wreath cut file in two colour ways. The apricot wreath I cut up to give lovely leafy details to my clusters.
I love this Shine On paper in the November kit! It is perfect for fussy cutting and layering up for clusters.
This beautiful and oh so useful Leafy Wreath cut file can be found here: http://cliquekits.com/shop/digital/
Have a great weekend!
Hello Clique Kits friends, Rachel here to share my first layout using the gorgeous Seneca Falls kit!
How pretty are the blues, pinks and small floral prints! I have used the exclusive CK cut file WEEKEND, cutting it in black card stock and then adding pops of pink in the smaller flowers.
I adore this photo of my youngest boy walking on the beach, his blue jump suite matching perfectly with the papers from the kit. I fringe cut three different paper strips, each strip 1/2 inch smaller than the previous. Once I had fringe cut them I then layered over each other. I then adhered the WEEKEND cut file over the top blue paper strip which provided a wonderful contrast.
I fussy cut a camera from the camera paper choosing 'remember' and finishing off tucking a small pink flower under the photo.
I added a journal tag and again I added a black/white floral bunch. I will go back and a wee note and date. I finished my layout off with a border strip, choosing the pretty pink floral one.
And there you have it, one fun layout with a stunning cut file and a gorgeous palette. You could easily scrap lift this layout and it would be a perfect girl themed layout also.
Thank you for taking time to stop by today and I hope you have a wonderful week.
Hello Lovelies! Theresa here with a layout that demonstrates a fun way to incorporate longer journaling into your layouts. I am working with the November Seneca Falls kit. This is the layout I would like to share with you today!
The Seneca Falls kit is filled with tons of goodies from Amy Tangerine, and her products are always good for boy layouts. This corrugated paper inspired me along with kraft paper die cuts in the kit, so I began with that. The black background might be a little overpowering for some, but gesso is our friend. I added two torn strips of patterned papers at the top of the layout, and then covered my background with gesso.
Gesso is like magic in that it will tie different elements together in a layout. Just remember that perfection is not the goal here. Once the background was dry, I added my cut file. This is the Enjoy Life Love Living cut file from May of this year. I used kraft card stock to cut with, and added patterned paper behind some of the letters.
I added my photo and just a few embellishments around the photo. I didn't want to add too much, because there is a lot going on in the layout already, so just a few leaves and the tops of some of the journaling spots I am also using in the layout.
My story I wanted to tell with this layout was a little longer than just one sentence, so I wrote out my journaling onto several of the spots included in the die cut package. The patterned papers at the top of the layout provide an excellent space for the story. My story is of how my son Nick randomly came to me a few weeks ago asking about some place we apparently used to go and get sugar cookies. All he could remember about it was that they were laid out on big platters. We talked a little about it and I remembered that when I was pregnant with his sister, we would go to a bakery in the next town over as a reward for his good behavior. He was three at the time! So we went back to get him his favorite cookies from his favorite bakery.
These stories are exactly why we love scrapbooking so much! I promise, if you are a mom, you are having an impact on your kiddos and they are remembering fondly the traditions and special things you do for them. Keep on being awesome! Here is one more look at my layout for today.
Thank you so much for joining me! I hope this inspired you to use your die cuts and the corrugated card stock in your Seneca Falls kits! See you soon!
Hello friends! Today I am sharing a simple, yet sweet layout using the oh-so-pretty Floral Confetti cut file.
I wanted to use a lot of pink to accent her dress and keep this soft, so I grabbed some Simple Stories and Fancy Pants Designs from my stash which worked wonderfully. A few pops of red and yellow add interest and highlight the photo without being overly powerful.
For a finishing touch, and to add some dimension, I added a few enamel dots and sequins in subtle tones.
