Hi Everyone! Lisa here with you today and I thought for the blog post today, I would share with you what I have been creating with the July Clique Kit (Carpe Diem.) I even have a video to share with you. I started out with the gorgeous wood grain pattern paper from the collection. This has to be my favorite paper and I would seriously hoard it. I love wood grain though. And the only thing that would make it better would be if they made it scratch and sniff.
The next thing I did was try to find a picture that I wanted to scrapbook. I have made it a challenge to myself to pull out some older pictures to scrapbook, so I pulled out an older picture of my son when he went to a petting zoo.
I looked through the papers I had left and the music paper jumped out at me. I feel like sometimes music paper could be related to being “girly” but i decided to give it a go. I added some layers of pattern paper behind the photo to add a bit more interest to the picture and to help guide you eye to it.
I then cut out some pieces from the cut apart sheet like the days of the week strip and the “Today” border. I added the wood vernier “This & That” piece, flair badge, and enamel key to a cluster on the bottom right side of the picture.
I then cut down the arrow transparency. This was just to get rid of the excess plastic. I then found some old frames in my stash as well as some other sticker and chipboard pieces. I added those to another cluster on the left side of the photo. I did this just so I could balance out all of the embellishments that were on the right side of the picture.
After the last final touches and journaling the page is complete. I hope you enjoyed today’s post, please watch the video to see it all come together. Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see more projects using the July Carpe Diem Kit! Have A great rest of your day!
