Clique Kits – Geek Lab – Favorite

Hello, everyone. I’m back to share a fun layout featuring the awesome Clique Kits May Sorbet kit.
Paper punches are a great tool when it comes to give your pages a more unique look. I love using them, but rarely do anymore, as my die-cutting machine does all the work for me πŸ˜‰ It felt like a nice change to take out my big box of punches and think of different ways to use them.
For my layout today, I picked three circular punches in different sizes (one of them has scalloped edges), and cut out several circles from a variety of patterned papers.
I then folded them in half, but didn’t glue them together. The idea was to create dimensional petals.Β  I used the colorful buttons in the Pink Fresh Studio Dream On collection for the inside of the flowers and tucked all the folded circles underneath them.
The smaller picture fit perfectly in between the flowers. A few layers of patterned papers and ephemera pieces were used to give the photo a more finished look.

For my title, I used the β€œFavorite” die cut included in the May Sorbet Kit. Simple and easy, but still bold enough to create some contrast with the rest of the colors.
I finished the layout with a couple of fun and colorful strips of washi tape at the bottom of the page and puffy stickers scattered all over the page.
Thank you for stopping by. Don’t forget to visit the Clique store for all your crafty needs. We also have a few challenges going on in the Clique Facebook group. You have until May 31st to play along for a chance to win a gift certificate to the store.

The Cut Shoppe – Boys Rule

Β Hello friends! I’m back today with a new boy layout for The Cut Shoppe. I used one of the cut files included in the Boys Rule set and the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day collection.

I wanted the cut file to be my title and take up most of the page, so I enlarged it as much as possible and backed it with a mix of patterned papers from the collection. I opted for a diagonal design which, in my opinion, is always a fun way to add interest to a layout.

I adhered the title down with foam tape to give it dimension and layered my picture with several patterned papers and tags. I love this photo of my son. It just shows how hard it can be to take a picture of him lately πŸ˜‰

I finished the layout with some fussy cut embellishments, wood veneer stars and enamel dots.

That’s it, friends. A fun and easy page that came together in no time. Check out this awesome cut file set in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
