Hello my Clique Kit friends! It is Ali here today sharing a layout with the Base Kit | Ashville that is currently in the shop. There is a lot of Periwinkle color in this kit and I thought it would be perfect for pictures of my husband and me in the Lavender fields.
There are so many different pretty papers in this collection and I used a lot of them as you can see. I used four different pattern papers and a solid blue that was included in the kit. I decided to hand stitch around the solid blue paper to add some texture to the layout. I used white thread to make it pop a bit. I added foam tape behind the solid paper to give the page a little dimension.
I added a lighter blue piece to the left side of the photos and used my notebook border punch to make it stand out. I used the embellishments from the kit and added them around the photos. I did add a thin piece of foam tape on the back center of the butterfly and pinched her wings so it looks like she is floating right off the page.
There is so much prettiness in this kit. So if you are even thinking about it, I would head over to the shop right now and pick it up before it sells out. Base kit | Asheville (cliquekits.com)
Thanks for joining me today and I can't wait to see what you make!
Love, Ali xo
Hello Everyone, it's Piroska here today with my latest post for Clique International. My task was to scroll on Pinterest and find something inspiring. I've been looking for all kinds of stuff and finally found a beautiful floral garland, which I immediately found great for re-making on paper.
I started with fussy cutting - have I told you lately that I love fussy cutting? It is so relaxing if you have good scissors! You can do it while watching your favourite show, or listening to a podcast. I often do it when I don't have moyo to scrap, but still want to make something at my table.
Have you seen the amazing paper pads for fussy cutting by Mintay Papers in the shop? There are different themed books, they are all 6X8" and full of elements to fussy cut. I chose the Flora Book 2, which was perfect for my floral garland. Here is my layout:
In this booklet you can find 2 different coloured floral elements (2-2 pages of pastell and bright coloured flowers) and 2 pages of leaves. Each design has 4 pieces, so you have plenty to work with ;-)
The pages are double sided, on the back they have some beautiful colours, which you can use as a scrapbook paper.
For my garland I used a twine as a base, I arranged two pieces of them as on the photo from Pinterest, and started to add my fussy-cut floral elements. I glued them with foam tape to add some dimension. I also added leaves to each bouquet.
Arranging the flowers was harder than I first thought :-P but it turned out beautifully. I decided not to mat my photo this time, to keep this layout clean and white. Finally I added a chipboard foam title from the Late Afternoon collection of Amy Tangerine, which you could find in the September Song Kit, which is already sold out.
I hope I could inspire you to make a layout with only fussy-cut elements! Show us if you did ;-)
