I really wanted to channel my inner college student with this layout! Somehow all these little sayings and words of encouragement throughout this fabulous kit reminded me of my college dorm bulletin board. I used to cut out things from magazines and put random candid pictures up. Honestly, I still kinda do that now in my office!
Those little bits of Pretty Little Studio word strips caught my eye as little fortune cookie papers. Grouped together they look like I’ve had too much takeout!
I used a lot of those little dot stickers from Fancy Pants Designs as replicas of push pins.
The faux layering of elements is something that my real bulletin board already looks like. Just sticking another saying up on top of another is achieved but adding little bits of patterned paper.
That squirrel was so cute I attached him to a piece of the exclusive journal cards. Random staples on word strips add another level of informality.
By having the top of the 12×12 paper be 2/3rds of the KaiserCraft dot paper, that left the lower 1/3rd plain white. It allowed the journal cards and pics to hang off the edge of the ‘bulletin board’ just as they would have been in my dorm.
It has been a blast being on this team for Clique Kits and I hope to see you around all my social media outlets and blog! Create lively my friends!
