I used the cut file as a background for my pictures and placed it on white cardstock. My page follows the color scheme of pink and turquoise, so I used papers from the Good Vibes | Paper Pack to back the blanks of the butterflies and added color splashes in the same color.
The butterflies are so beautiful that it doesn't take much more to finish your page. I just added some details here and there like this little bird peeking from behind one of the butterflies.
The black title builds a nice contrast to the bright colors and the white cardstock and also suits the dress my daughter is wearing.
All in all, this layout came together quite quickly because the cut file does a lot for the page.
If you want to let these beautiful butterflies stretch their wings on your project as well, just head over to the shop and download the file. It's so fun to use it and I'm sure that I'll have these wings on other projects in future, too.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a sweet layout using the fantastic Herringbone cut file.
I used papers from my stash that are included in the November Seneca Falls kit, as well as others that aren't, and cut them into strips that fit within each piece of the cut file. Next I (somewhat) randomly glued the strips to create an appealing design flow.
Finally, I finished it off with a few simple embellishments that would keep the focus on the photo without taking away from the overall design.
We'd love to see how you use this fun file! Have a wonderful weekend!
Hey Clique Kits Friends, Rachel here! Today I have a layout created using the gorgeous Seneca Falls kit and the November sketch by CK. I usually only scrap one photo per layout so this was a good way to get more photos onto my page!
And here is what I created.
How cute is my cat, he will get into every container, box he can find and my new rotten basket for my craft room was no exception! I have followed the sketch pretty much in every detail and no cut files which is unusual for me.
I have used the black corrugated card as my base papered then added white card stock at 11 inches square.
I chose three of the patterned papers from the AT Shine On collection, choosing the colours that went with my photos the best. Once I had layered there I added the larger photo with foam tape. I then added the smaller one which I matted on a square of the wood grain paper and again with foam tape. Adding foam tape to elements means I can tuck embellishments under if I haven't a firm plan for my layout.
I created an embellishment cluster starting under the smallest photo. I added die cuts from the ephemera pack, enamel hearts from the kit and a phrase sentiment.
How cute are the paper clips from the Shine On collection! I added a flower cluster under the larger photo and built my title by adding the Kraft die cut from the pack and then added the 'cute' paper clip. For my journalling, as in the sketch I added phrase stickers and later I will go back and add some hand written journalling.
To finish off I added a splatter of black color shine and used some black/white bakers twin to add to the bottom of my layout (breaking up the white).
I look forward to seeing what you create using the sketch and this months kit so do # CliqueKits or add to The Clique group FB page.nThank you for stopping by today and see you again soon.
Hello Lovelies! It's Theresa here with a pocket page layout for you, using the November 2018 Seneca Falls kit! This kit was filled with Amy Tangerine goodies and her products always inspire me to use them in my pocket pages. Today I am working in my 2013 album and have created a layout for Week 15. Take a look!
Our stories for that week included the bombing at the Boston Marathon, my husband having to take a trip there for a client, and lots of t-ball with the kiddos.
I am loving the gold cut apart sheet, so I used that for my date card. The black alphabet set contrasts beautifully against the gold. There were also some fun icons in that alphabet, so I used some of the arrows to embellish a bit.
It seems hard to believe the Boston bombing was five years ago. At the time my husband had several clients and technicians who lived and worked there, and he was called up to travel there the day after the bombing. We live in NC, so fairly distant, but felt the impact of that tragedy even here, of course. We took the approach that he should go and support his clients and technicians in any way possible, without fear, and that is what he did. He took photos while he was there, which I am so thankful for.
I don't always add current events to my pocket page layouts, but this one impacted us in a way, and I am glad to include it. I took the Boston Strong logo from Google photos and included it as a tribute to what happened, and layered it very simply using some of the die cut ephemera pieces.
We were so happy to have him return home safely. I have also used some of the exclusive designs on my layout, including the 3x4 cards designed by Gia Lau! My second page is all about t-ball.
At the time both Nick and Natalie were taking t-ball at our local YMCA, and, well, Natalie has some stories to tell from her experiences. Because of my own schedule I wasn't able to attend all her games and practices, so I represented her time on the team here. I also told the story of how she showed herself quite the temperamental firecracker: she threw temper tantrums and during one of them she threw another kids' helmet! Ah, team sports are great learning experiences, aren't they?
I have used the gold cut apart sheet once again on this side, to tie that element in. I also used my circle and hexagon punches to add layering pieces. Notice how on the top photo I punched the hexagon and it cut a portion of the design off, so I added puffy hearts to cover that up.
I also repeated the black and white elements on this side by using a bit more of the days of the week strip and the All About It journaling spot. So many fun elements in this layout!
Thank you for joining me today! See you again soon!
Hello crafty friends! Rita here again to share a layout I created using the Cut File „Ocean Waves“. I know, I know, you probably all prepare your December Dailys by now. (Me included!) But I HAD to make a layout using this super pretty Cut File, plus I really miss summer and while reminiscing about my last trip to the sea the idea for this layout was born.
I love to play with colors. Thus I made an acrylic paint based background for the Cut File. I used three colors: white, pale and dark blue, mixed them on the paper and added some splashes. After the drying everything came together quite quickly. The Cut File, my photo, some embellishments from my stash and my title. I really like how my layout turned out, and even if the weather and temperature outside don't match. Summer is a state of mind! :-)
Alright, and now off to my christmassy stuff I go… I hope you feel inspired to use a non-seasonal Cut File once in a while… Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!
Hi Everyone! Happy Friday! Here's some inspiration to hopefully get you scrapping over the weekend. I have used the November Leafy Wreath cut file and one of the gorgeous Shine On papers from the November kit. My wee granddaughter was on holiday in Rarotonga with her family when she found this pretty flower to give Mum. Even though the November cut files and papers are Autumn themed, they still can be perfect for those of us heading into summer.
I cut the Leafy Wreath cut file in two colour ways. The apricot wreath I cut up to give lovely leafy details to my clusters.
I love this Shine On paper in the November kit! It is perfect for fussy cutting and layering up for clusters.
This beautiful and oh so useful Leafy Wreath cut file can be found here: http://cliquekits.com/shop/digital/
