Art Studio: Mac Love Layout



Hello everyone! Leigh here, to bring you a “sweet” layout about our current favorite sweet treats, macarons!

What’s your favorite sweet treat? It was so fun to make this layout about our family’s fave, and I used the Faber Castell Whipped Spackle and Pink Gumball Ranger Paint Dabber from the Clique Kits Store, to resemble frosting.


Love these Pinkfresh Studio papers!


You can cut the exclusive cut files for October on standard office supply transparency film to create your own stencil to use over and over again. I label mine with washi tape and back with black card stock for added durability, and to make them easier to see!


Use a palette knife to spread your Whipped Spackle on like frosting!


Add the Pink Gumball paint, it’s really easy with this dabber topped paint.


Use a craft knife or paper trimmer to trim out 3 inch by 3 inch patterned card stock diamonds as desired.


I printed my photos out at 2.75 inches so I could back them with a 3 inch vellum piece.


Cut out your cut-a-parts and add your favorite embellies from the October kit, and have fun!


This layout was made with the Clique Kits exclusive cut files, Faber Castell Whipped Spackle, Pink Gumball Ranger Paint Dabber available in the Clique Kits Store, and the October Funfetti Kit! Thank you for joining us here today!
