Hey y’all, my name is Kate Kennedy (kraftinkate to the youtubers) and I am so excited to be the May Guest Designer for Clique Kits. When I received my kit back in March, I was stoked to see all the Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine. The papers are so fun and colorful and just what I needed to jump start my excitement for the upcoming summer months.
This is the first layout I made with the kit and I have to say I had a bit of a hard time cutting into the awesome papers. So, I pushed them aside, and pulled out that awesome pineapple stamp that is available in the store. I had visions of gold embossed pineapples as background so I set forth creating one. I embossed several pineapples with gold detail embossing powder then fussy cut them all out. Now, I am Not a fan of the fussy cut … at all, and although it looks like it might be tedious to cut, it really didn’t take long at all.
Once I had them all arranged the rest of the layout pretty much fell in place. I added some layers behind my photo and a few of the epoxy embellishments and really let the pineapples be the main embellishments. The photo is of a plaque in our pool that I thought was really neat. Can you tell I am super pumped for summer? 🙂
Here are some photos of the layout and be sure to check out the process video below for more details.
Can’t wait to see what you all do with the May kit, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the video.

oh, what a neat idea with the embossing powder! It looks great!! I tried embossing a few years ago, but never really got into it. I might have to give it another try!
