Happy Sunday! Today I'm sharing a layout using the August sketch and my August kits.
I stuck to the sketch pretty closely with just a few slight adjustments. For the long section of patterned paper, I used paper 10.840X from the main kit. I loved the soft waves of color and cut it so that most of that section was included in the strip I would be using on my layout. I then glued the paper to a piece of card stock in the same position as in the sketch. For this layout, I glued it to a piece of card stock from my stash, the color being Juneberry by Bazzill.
Because I love hand stitching and the detail it brings to a project, I stitched along the darkest lines of the waves in matching colors of embroidery thread from my stash. I used only 3 of the 6 strands of thread to keep the delicacy of the lines in the paper.
After the stitching was complete, I added the two embellishment clusters as indicated the sketch however I switched the sides in which they are located. My clusters were made with mostly the ephemera pack and the printables in the main kit however a few pieces were brought in from the August TN kit.
The only other minor change I made was to move my pictures to the right of the patterned paper strip as I didn't want to cover up the gorgeous patterned paper and my hand stitching! The finishing touch was adding some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine.
I love the way this layout turned out and I hope you have enjoyed it. Have a fabulous week!
Hello Clique Kits friends! I am so loving my August Meadow kit, especially the Alexandra Renke papers.
The Tulips Wreath paper had to be fussy cut, once I had done this I cut it in half. I then took the Baby's Breath Rose paper and cut a four inch strip off the top so I could use the remaining paper which I attached to a off white 12x12 cardstock.
I used foam tape to attach my fussy cut wreath to the top of my layout. This photo of my daughter was perfect for this layout, as I didn't want the background in the photo I cut her silhouette out which contrast wonderfully against the off white cardstock and tucked in the centre of the wreath.
I really didn't want to over do this layout as I didn't want to lose visual impact by it being too 'busy'. Firstly I added the two beautiful watercolour dragonfly die cuts, both attached with foam tape to create a 3D effect.
I fussy cut the beautiful butterflies from the paper in the kit and arranged these around the wreath and again with foam tape.
I added two of the material covered hearts, picking the purple and yellow to blend in with the wreath. I added some word sentiments from the die cut pack and placed around the outer of my wreath.
Finally I created my title, using one of the Heidi Swapp stickers (Today) and the stunning exclusive FLY flair.
I finished my layout off with a light splatter of black color shine.
Simple but stunning, with these papers it was easy!
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope my layout has inspired you in some way!
See you again soon!
Hello everybody. Today I show you a page in my mini album. Every month I try to capture my little and big Memories in a Mini. Unfortunately, I can not do it every month, but I try. The focus of the product is the Stencil, included in the Main Kit.
I thought that was a great Inspiration. I often wanted to use a stencil on an Acetate. And I like it. First I applied the acrylic paint and then the golden glitter. I had to do it twice because I did not dry it long enough.
I have also painted these sweet butterflies with acrylic paint. I placed the photo in the middle and decorated it. With the Acetate paper on the side it makes a great effect.
I did not make the left side expensive, because the paper is so great. A few butterflies and the weekend Acatet word from Heidi Swapp.
I hope you enjoy it. Have a nice and creative day.

Hello! It's Heather Doolittle here with a layout to share!
This week is all about that awesome splashy stencil that is included in this month's scrapbook kit. I thought it would look awesome with some texture paste smeared through it, so that's just what I did! I recently bought some white metallic modeling paste and was dying to use it! Once I had placed down my patterned papers and knew where my photo was going on my page, I used the stencil and smeared some paste through the design with a silicone spatula type brush. I love that it added some white-on-white texture behind the photo. In real life, that paste is kinda shiny and oh-so-pretty.
In addition to that awesome stencil, I love the colors in the Meadow kit this month! There are so many artistic textures and I LOVE IT. Gia and Lacey did an AMAZING job on designing the cute cut-apart and diecuts, and I loved using some of those on my page!
How have you used stencils on your projects? This modeling paste thing is new to me, but I LOVE the texture it gives! I will definitely be doing it again soon!
Hi friends, Theresa here with a mixed medial layout for you. Our product focus this month is the incredible stencil that was included in the August Meadow kit from Alexandra Renke. I absolutely love stencils and made a beeline for my modeling paste and a photo to get started.
To begin my layout, I cut down one of the patterned papers to layer onto the pink paper as a border. I mixed my modeling paste with black acrylic paint and placed a few of the ink splatters around my page. They are placed strategically: at the top of the page, to the right side, and also to the left side of where my photo will be placed. I already have in my head how I want the layout to look and placed the stencils accordingly.
Once I have the black splatters where I want them, I added my title. My title is taken from a Lauren Daigle song called You Say, which I am absolutely playing on repeat right now. Once I had my title in place, I added journaling across the page on the opposite side.
My photo is placed along the right hand side and I added a few of the exclusive die cut ephemera that were included in the kit. The beautiful watercolor florals and butterflies add an amazing depth of color that this layout definitely needed. I have clustered three groupings around my photo.
I wanted to use the stencil again, so I added another layer of modeling paste, and this time I added some Prima Art Alchemy Sparks paint in Fairy Wings to the mix. You can absolutely add most any acrylic paint to your modeling paste to thicken it a bit and make it work with your stencil!
For this layout I wanted to add journaling but notice how I have covered it mostly using my photo and ephemera. Sometimes I like writing just for the sake of getting thoughts onto paper, and then covering them up just to put peace on it. This is a wonderful way to use mixed media as a form of processing thoughts that you know probably aren't permanent. The plus is that you get to make something pretty as well! Here is another look at the full layout.
Have you been inspired to use the stencil? We would love to see, so be sure to share and tag us! Thank you for joining me today!
Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a layout using the August Meadow Main kit that utilizes a stencil. I wanted to tell a story about working on our home that we purchased as a fixer-upper and ended up breaking a pane of glass. The stained glass store cut file was perfect as it reminded me of shattered glass and I decided to use the Splashes stencil by Alexandra Renke that came in the main kit.
I started by placing the stencil which is 6"x6" in each of the four corners of paper 10.542 from the kit and applied Distress Oxide inks through the it. The colors of ink I used for this layout were Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, and Blueprint Sketch. I thought this would add some more interest to the layout and I love the way it turned out. I then cut out the stained glass cut file at size 11.5"x11.5" on the paper I had stenciled on.
I took the cut file and attached to a piece of card stock with wash tape and then glued all of the pieces of the negative cut file to the card stock. In this layout, I used Bubblegum by Bazzil. This left a strip of bare card stock around the outer edge of the page so I did a zig zag stitch in gold thread on my sewing machine to add a subtle border.
Next I utilized the 6"x6" patterned papers from the TN kit to add multiple layers to the back of my photo and added a couple of the phrase stickers from Heidi Swapp included in the kit as well.
Lastly, I adhered the clear alpha stickers from the kit by Love and Lemon to a white piece of card stock before cutting them out and adding to the page for my title. I also hand wrote my journaling on strips of white card stock before gluing them below my photo.
I love how the final layout came together and hope this has inspired you to create with a stencil either from the kit or from your stash. Have a great rest of your weekend!
Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a scrapbook layout. I created using the July Regatta kits.
I captured a moment of fun for my kids in the pool. A photo where they are together photographed at an angle of 90 degrees specifically for the layout. And just added two circle pictures with the faces of the girls.
I added a very cool Regatta kit with watercolors, sequins from the June kit, overlay and stamps.
Hello Clique Kits friends! I am sure you will be loving the August Meadow Kit as much as I do. Today I have a layout with a mixed media focus. I am a clean scrapper but as soon as I saw the Alexandra Renke Tubes of Paint paper I was inspired get out my water colour paints!
And here is what I created.
I started of by fussy cutting the paint tubes. I then chose my title/theme for my layout using a cut file (I love play on words!). I arranged the cut file title in a way that I could place my photo and embellishments, I also re sized the words for visual interest.
I then got messy by painting a piece of water color paper to back my title. I chose colours that would tie in with my layout, but I went messy and added black splatters. It certainly has made my title stand out.
I then added my fussy cut paint tubes, adding water color paint so it appears the paint is coming out of the tubes. I rolled some of the paint tubes so it appears they have been used.
I used the green water color square from the printed cut a part included in the kit. I then foam taped my photo to add height. I love this photo of my daughter, the happiness on he face before the worries and complications of the teenage years hit and hence my title of my layout.
I finished off by adding some of the poppies from the die cut pack (which are totally gorgeous) and the material covered heart flair. A splatter of black paint and there you have it!
I had fun creating this layout, even for a scrapper who tends to shy away from mixed media. Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful creative week x
Hello there! It’s Heather Doolittle here with a traveler’s notebook spread that I created using this month’s Meadow kit!
When I received this kit, my mind got to working thinking of how I was going to use all of the awesome items in the kit!
I wanted to do something different with the wooden butterflies. I thought of painting them (I love that look!), but I had decided on making a traveler’s notebook spread for my story focus and I like keeping those pages pretty flat. So, I decided to use the butterflies as stamps! All I did was use my ATG to glue them temporarily to a clear stamp block, ink them up, stamp on my page, and then took the shapes off when I was complete! The butterflies were colored yellow when I was done stamping, so that would be fun to use on a future project!
To add some more interest, I fussycut some butterflies out of one of the patterned papers and added a few to the stamped area of the spread. I think the yellow-on-yellow looks beautiful! I also added some gold mist splatters to the page. I need some shine! :)
After finishing the focal point of the page (the butterflies), I added my photo, journaling, and a couple of embellishments and called it done! I love that I have this story about my beautiful peonies documented now!
Thanks for stopping by today! See you next time! :)
