Hi everyone! Nicole here and today, I'm sharing with you my final project for Clique Kits.
I want to start off this post by thanking Gia for this wonderful opportunity and for believing in me that I can create projects to inspire you! Over the past three months, I've met so many new people and have learned so much and I hope it all continues to grow! What a sweet experience this was...definitely one I'll never forget! ~Thanks Gia from the bottom of my heart!!
With that being said, I've created a "sweet" layout to share with all of you today featuring the June Sweet Tea kits! Here's a look at my completed layout...
I just adore the strawberries in this kit! The papers, ephemera, puffy stickers and even the watermelon! There were a lot of smaller embellishments, but I wanted to create two large strawberries to use as a focal point for this layout. After drawing and cutting out the basic shape, I drew in the seeds and fussy cut out some leaves and small white flowers. To accent the leaves, I used two of the yellow flowers included in the kit.
I found two pieces of the ephemera that fit this photo perfectly! "be human to the fullest" and "Best Human." This picture is of my "brother," Odie. He's literally the funniest dog I've ever known! I have him trained to sit on the chair at our dining room table nicely without begging and if he listens, I give him fruit. On this day, he tried watermelon for the first time and I couldn't hold him back. I thought his ear was so stinkin' cute and when I snapped the photo, his tongue was in a funny spot!
For an extra hand made touch, I added the bee to the top right of the layout and then hand stitched a line to simulate him flying.
Lastly, I added some of the watermelon from the kit and one from my stash to the bottom left of the page and added my date.
Thanks so much for joining me today and every post for the last three months!
I hope you will follow me on Instagram @colebys1981 for more projects and inspiration!
Thank you again Gia and best of luck, many thanks and lots of love!!
Hello scrappy friends! Nicole here and today I'm sharing a super fun layout if you love to stitch! I'm using the May main kit only for this layout...let's get started!
I loved the moons and stars included in this months kit, however there really wasn't a "moon" paper to coordinate. I took the paper with all of the stars on it and cut a moon into it, sewing a pink layer behind it.
I added my title around the left side of the moon to give that side of my layout a bit more visual weight.
I added my photo and layers along with an embellishment cluster to the left of my photo. I used the black string in the May kit for the stitching, on the tag and as added texture on my button.
Thanks so much for joining me today! I can't wait to see what you create with the May kits!
