Exploring with Clique Kits – Part 3

Hi Everyone! Welcome back fo

r the final installment of Exploring with Clique Kits. I’m not sure if I’m more sad to be finishing up my time as August’s Substitute Teacher or that my gorgeous Glam Camp kit has dwindled down to just a few pieces. I hav

e absolutely loved being part of all the Glam Camp fun and just want to say a huge THANK YOU to the CK Gals for letting me play along.

For my last project, I wanted to add a little CK flair to a major trend in today’s crafting world. Background overlays are very popular so I searched for an overlay in Cricut DesignStudio and found a fun circle overlay. I then went ahead and welded some of the cute hearts from the CK digital files from Glam Camp. Adding the little hearts really helped to personalize it. I went ahead and cut the overlay with my Cricut Explore using plain cardstock and then I embossed it with a gold embossing powder… LOVE how it turned out!

I really wasn’t sure where this project was going when I started and didn’t have a picture in mind, I just started to create. I ended up getting the inspiration to create my first page for my crafty album where I plan to keep all the layouts of pictures from my mommy getaways and scrappy retreats… I went with the title, For the Love of Scrap and used my Explore to cut out the “Love” part of my title… I used a Project Life card which made it such a quick and easy process. Here’s a peek – 

To finish up I sprinkled a few gold sequins and flower embellishment from my Close to My Heart stash. Check them out here…
And here’s the whole layout all together!

Again, I just want thank you all and the CK gals for the opportunity to play along as August’s Substitute Teacher. I hope I’ve inspired you to dig out your die-cutting machines, whether you have a Cricut or a Silhouette… and I hope you start having fun with those wonderful digi-files that come with your kit!

I’ll see you around the Clique!

We love the gold embossing on the background die cut and we especially love the addition of the Clique Kits hearts to the circle lattice design-isn’t that clever?  A beautiful layout for a beautiful photo to document your journey into scrapbooking. Now that you are hooked, we hope you continue on this journey for a long, long time!
