Clique Kits – Field Notes: Punches and Mixed Media

Hello, Clique fans! I’m here today to share a new Traveler’s Notebook spread for Clique Kits. Look at all the fabulous goodies in the July Pool Party Travelers Notebook kit!

I went back to my good ol’ punches again. This is a floral border one from Martha Stewart that I have had in my stash for quite a while. The idea was to create a colorful background using different patterned paper from the Ain’t Life Grand collection featured in the kit.

On the opposite side of the page, I used a mixed media paper from Kaisercraft that came in the May Sorbet kit. After cutting it to fit, I simply colored it with a mini ink blending tool and shades of ink that matched the colors in the papers. One of the sentiments from the collection served as my title, which was placed in the center of the page and backed with some thread for added texture.

I layered the photo with a mix of patterned papers. The journaling, as well as some sentiments, were typed and then cut into strips.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you felt inspired to use the July Pool Party Travelers Notebook Kit on your pages and maybe give your punches a try 😉

Have a lovely day!

The Cut Shoppe – Happy Days

Hello there! Enza here to share a new layout featuring the Get around cut file and the beautiful Ain’t Life Grand collection designed by Ashley for Pretty Little Studio.

I wanted to use multiple patterned papers from the collection, so the wheel design worked perfectly for it. I enlarged the cut file to the desired dimensions and started backing it up with some of my favorite papers. Once the background was ready, I adhered it to white cardstock with a piece of foam sheet.

As I wanted my photo to stand out a little more, I decided to print it in black and white and created a frame around it with some die cut flowers.

Next, the clusters. Clouds and hearts in the prettiest colors!

I finished the layout with lots of enamel dots that matched the colors in the papers.

Cut files are an amazing way to incorporate different patterns and colors in one page. Visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy store for this and other inspiring designs.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
