Hello my darling Clique Kits fans! I hope you’re carving out some time in your days to get your scrap on! I’ve been trying to make sure I do something creative every day and it has really helped me keep my mojo going!!
Today I want to share with you a layout I made using the sold out I Am Gold exclusive kit featuring the amazing I Am collection by Simple Stories. I absolutely LOVE this collection! It’s so versatile in that you can create layouts about yourself (which is always good, because your kids are going to want to know more about you too, and not just see a million layouts about them! lol), but it’s also great for making those layouts about our kid’s personalities and anyone else too! Love it!
For this layout I wanted to create a grid showing off my obsession with instagram. I LOVE instagram! I love that you can put fun filters on photos and share them via instagram on facebook too. I’m a bit of a junkie to say the least! lol So I found some of my favorite instagram photos and made them all black and white so they wouldn’t be too busy for the eye, and printed them all out on a contact sheet on my printer. The layout came together really easily! I just arranged the photos in a grid and placed a few little embellishmets here and there and a little stitching and there you have it!
I fussy cut one of the 4×6 cards that had the I am on it for my title and used the small stickers from the sticker sheet for the rest of the title. I love that little heart geotag!
Because there are so many photos, I didn’t want to put too many embellishments on this layout, because I really wanted to focus to be on the pictures. So I just added a few sequins and some mist splatters to give it a little more visual interest and left it at that.
I hand cut the “Insta” part of the title out of patterned paper and popped it up with pop dots to make it stand out more. Then I finished off my title with those fabulous gold hearts and that adorable arrow sticker!
I also wanted to share another layout I made using the last bits of my kit. My son sent me this meme and it inspired this layout:
I knew it would be perfect for this picture of Ethan holding their second place trophy for their hockey tournament a few years ago!
I just got those fabulous Hero Arts Ombre ink pads and I was itching to use them, so I grabbed this Altenew stamp set that came in the kit (it’s also available for purchase in the store separately) and used it to make my background. I also used some Tim Holtz distress ink that I put on a piece of packaging with a little water and smushed it around and dabbed it randomly around my page. I love that technique!
The “awesome” in my title is a Heidi Swapp alphabet from my stash that I colored with the Tim Holtz ink also.
I really love the Altenew Thoughts and Reminders stamp set. It’s got a lot of great sentiments that you can use for your scrapbooking and cards alike! You can use my coupon code SARAH10 to get 10% off this set and anything else in the store if you have a hankering for some shopping! 😉
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
