Hi there my friends..it’s been a while since I’ve blogged here on my personal site (been busy with Clique Kits projects & blog posts). Thought I’d stop by today, to share my most recent 12×12 layout with you guys.
I recently got the March Clique Kit, named “PLAY” & just couldn’t wait to start creating with it! I had this photo of my son & his best friend sitting on my desk, that I’d been wanting to scrap..so I went for it. I think I literally squealed when I was done, I was sooo happy with the results!! 🙂
Here’s a few close-ups of my page:
I used a combination of Shimelle’s new line, Little By Little (featured in this month’s kit) & a few things from Amy Tangerine’s, On A Whim line. They go so perfectly together & are just stinkin’ ADORABLE! I decided to pull out one of my old Amy Tangerine stitch templates & do some hand-stitching on my page. I really love the look & texture it gives to your layouts.
I thought it would be cool to just add random strips of the paper along the side as a design element. I curled & roughed the edges with my fingers, so it would have a little dimension & texture, without needing to add pop dots. And I couldn’t stop there, I just had to add a few of the cute resin stars that came in the kit, as well.
Here’s another close-up for you:
I used a cute journaling spot from the ephemera pack that came in the kit, to get a few of my thoughts on the layout..their friendship just warms my heart to pieces. I am so grateful for the kind of influence he has had on my son’s life; well actually on mine too! 🙂
Finally, here’s a look at my completed layout:
I will have a YouTube video up on my channel sharing all the lovely products you get in this kit. I would love it if you stopped by for a peak!
Thanks for poppin’ in..I hope I have inspired you to get your “CRAFT ON” and make something memorable today!
