Hello Clique Family! Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day. I am here to share some inspiration to get your love day photos scrapped using some fun Valentine theme cut files!
Today I'm sharing a 12x12 layout featuring an exclusive cut file I designed for the Clique Facebook group Valentine's Day cut file giveaway! If you're not a part of the group, be sure you head over and join in on the fun! The cut file used today, along with several others, are available now in the shop as free .png's to cut on any machine! The link is down below!
I recently got my hands on some of the gorgeous new Doodlebug Love Notes collection and I am swooning over it! When I saw the globe and two love birds, this idea came to me and I totally ran with it! I do have to say, it was probably one of the quickest layouts I've ever put together. Before I even started, I knew that I wanted the cut file to be the largest element on the page. I did some stash busting and found a black chalkboard paper, then coincidentally found the background paper with all of the smaller black hearts. It was PERFECT! I cut my heart cut file on my Silhouette Cameo 4, then laid it on my background. It got lost a little because there was so much going on, so I used my white gesso to smudge a heart right where my cut file would be. After drying, I glued my cut file into place and began embellishing.
I started with my photo first. I knew I wanted to use this specific photo and I knew I wanted to use the globe with the title "My World." For me, it's easier to start with what I know I want first, then embellish around it.
I spent some time fussy cutting papers from Doodlebug for added leaves and flowers. I also decided to stick the word "world" on white cardstock and fussy cut around it so it stood out a bit more.
Since my photo cluster was on the bottom right of my page, I added another cluster in the top left to balance the layout out. I used a few die cuts and also two layered bird stickers with some enamel dots and thread to finish off this cluster.
Lastly, since do everything in odd numbers, I added another small cluster of flowers and enamel dots. This seemed to bring the whole layout together. After everything was adhered and in place, I added some black splatters and my journaling along one of the lines on the heart.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to head on over to grab this cut file along with all of the others!

Hello everyone, Lacey here! I'm so excited to launch Clique Kits with 3 other amazing women; Gia, Jody and Erica! We have been working behind the scenes putting together the company, ideas, and our passion for paper crafting to share with fellow friends, old and new, in the industry and hope to inspire you all!
Clique Kits is a kit club coming this Spring. We will be offering fantastic products from the scrapbook industry in our kits as well as some exclusive embellishments and printables. More information on how to become a kit member and kit content information will be coming soon.
Since I mentioned printables, why not start with sharing a printable I designed! This year I decided to start a Project Life album or what I am calling A Year in My Life. I'm not sure if I'll be completing weekly pages or monthly pages, perhaps both! I want it to work with my schedule, photos, moments and not feel overwhelmed or discouraged if I don't get weekly layouts completed. In addition to the album I wanted title pages, so us gals at Clique Kits thought it would be fun to offer you, our new fans, a freebie printable of calendar cards! I have designed them in two sizes, 3" x 4" and 4" x 6" to fit your album needs. Use these in your own, A Year in My Life album, scrapbook layouts, cards and other crafting creations! Share how you use these cards on our Facebook page!
