Hello crafty friends! Rita here to share a layout I created using the Cut File „Meadow“.
I love the cute design of the twigs and leaves. They are very suitable for a fall layout, don't you think? For my layout I used Pink Paislee's „Auburn Lane“ Paper No.1 and cut it apart. On the background I used some acrylic paint and stitched a rectangular frame for my photo and the journaling card.
The cardstock that I used for the Die Cuts had some pink acrylic on it. I love the brigthness of the color in comparison to the sober pastels. Befor the Cutting I added color on one half of the cardstock and left the other half white. Oh, and of course I let it dry first. Later on I mixed the colored and white Die Cuts on the layout to help emphasize and support the main elements inside the stitched frame. I really like how it turned out.
I hope this layout inspires you to add some color to your own Die Cuts. Thanks so much for stopping by!
I everyone, this is Daniela and I'm super exited to show you my first layout as a member of the brand-new Cut Team today. I grabbed the Summer - July 2016 cut file from the shop and used it several times for my page.
I created a background with liquid color on white cardstock because I wanted the words "summer" to appear on bright colors. I cut the words from the same kind of cardstock I used as a background, this was the elements go together quite well.
I also arranged little drops around the cut words and placed some bits and pieces on top of the word, this way the page becomes more dimension.
I backened the cut words with patterned paper and used diffenernt colors and designes in summerly colors. Using cut files gives you the opportunity to create titles in your own style and colors, that's so great about working with these. Who doesn't know the experience about not finding the perfect alphas in your stash. That is a problem that can easily be solved by using cut files along with paper.
All in all, I used the word Summer four times on my layout, but each of them is filled differently. I even left one of them blank as a part of my big title, which is "Favorite Summer Outfit". I used different puffy alphas on top of the word summer and I really like the effect.
I really like how this page turned out and can't wait to use more files. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have great day!
Hello everyone! Today I have a layout using the gorgeous October Gather kit. This layout is all about family.
I totally love the houses in this collection and this layout evolved from creating an embellishment cluster of the houses. I fussy cut 2 of the houses from the paper and the pink one is a die cut from the ephemera pack. I layered them and added foam tape to create a 3D effect. I then cut 'made with love' from the journal card paper. I added some machine stitching under this for texture. I then added the super cute rabbits to each side. I finished this cluster off with some of the sticker hearts.
The chipboard alphas in the kit are beautiful! I knew I wanted a large title but only wanted my word Gathered to be a focus, so I typed the smaller words. and finished off with a gold foil heart sticker.
My photo is a 4x6 inch photo but I cut it down so it fitted in with my layout design. I used the dark green paper to mat and then added a paper strip to the bottom (from the journal paper) and some die cut florals tucked under.
I loved how this layout turned out! Thank you stopping by today and I will see you again soon with more creations using the gorgeous Gather kit.
Hello crafty friends! I'm Rita and today I get to share my very first layout for Clique Kits with you. I'm part of the new Cut File Design Team, so my focus lies on the Digitals. For this Traveler's Notebook layout I chose the „I'm Doing This For Me“ Cut File. When I saw this big, bold title, I instantly had an idea. It couldn't be more perfect for a „celebrating my hobby“-layout.
I used a light purple colored cardstock for the Cut File, because it perfectly suits the soft pastels of the „This Is Us“ Digital Collection from which I used the baby blue colored wreath and some cute ephemera pieces and labels.
I'm a huge fan of mixed media. In fact I hardly remember having a layout without some watercolors splashes or acrylic paint on it. So of course I had to make a little light blue background for my photo, which by the way shows some pictures from my Instagram feed where I document my papercrafting hobby. To create some dimension, I layered, in addition to the wreath and the „black hearts“ paper, some vellum and tissue paper. Some heart puffy stickers, theme-fitting stamps and a handwritten quote give my layout the final touch.
I hope this layout inspires you to make your own „celebrating my hobby“-layout. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hello Lovelies! Theresa here with a Mixed Media Layout to share with you. I am working with the October Gather kit, which is filled with so much beautiful Pink Paislee products. Here is my layout for today.
I had a really beautiful photo of our daughter Emberlynn from 2013, playing on the playground. I loved the pop of pink in her shirt, and was also inspired by the outdoorsy feel of the photo. So I gathered a few supplies, such as a butterfly stencil, some paints and spray mists, and started.
I sprayed the card stock with Heidi Swapp Color Shine using the stencil to mask off just the butterflies. The stencil is also from Heidi Swapp. At first I was going to use the Distress Paint only on the butterflies as well, but the mister I was using was a bit sprinkly, so I sprinkled the darker color all around the page. In the end it was a happy accident, because I really love the way those splatters show!
Once the background was dry, I began layering the page. I was envisioning a window box with flowers inside, and her photo peeking from behind the flowers. The Clique Kits Shop has the Flower Field Cut File available so I cut that from two different patterned papers. First I adhered them along the bottom of the layout, and then I just kind of went crazy with them!
I also tucked some of the die cut embellishments within the flowers, and layered the photo on a few layers of patterned paper. To carry in the feeling of the window, I added the wood grain to the top and bottom of the layout as well.
You can see how pretty those paint splatters are just peeking out from behind all the layers! Here is one more look at my layout.
Thank you so much for joining me today! Have you been using your Gather Kit? We would love to see, so please share with us and use #cliquekits. See you again soon!
