Hello Clique friends,
Happy New Year to you all! May 2017 be full of love, peace and blessings.
Today, i wanted to share with you a new layout created with this month’s “Hey, Sugar” kit. Isn’t it lovely? All the beautiful papers and embelishments are so fun to work with, but there is also a set of cut files that is included with each kit. One of this month’s cut files features an image of a donut; once i saw the cut file, I knew that it would work perfect for what i had in mind.
I started by printing the image of the donut, using the Silhouette software, in my printer. I used a pencil to transfer onto trace paper the image of the donut. Using the Prima watercolor palettes, i created a few circles on watercolor paper to look like the dough of a donut.
Using the trace paper image as a guide, the watercolor circles were cut to obtain the donut shape. At the same time, I isolated the icing image of the donut, on the Silhouette software, and cut it from some of the papers in the kit, as well as the Heart Day 6×6 pad (this month’s kit add on) available at the Clique Store.
Once i had the “donut icing” cut outs, i glued the pieces together, and added a bit of hand stitching to secure the pieces, and add texture to the donut shapes. Putting the page together after that was so simple, and fun!
The donuts were attached to the page using adhesive foam (in different thickness), so that they create dimension on the page. All the sprinkles in the donuts are the part of the Joy Parade (from Fancy Pants) puffy stickers included in the kit, I simply cut the triangles to create the sprinkles for the donuts. I created a photo strip of my nephew eating only the sprinkles of a donut, and nestled it amongst the donuts. This month’s exclusive printables were perfect to create little clusters along the photo strip.
For the title, I used the circumference of the donut to create a playful design with the Crate Paper’s Heart Day Alphas included in the kit, and one of the word stickers (from the Joy Parade collection) also included in the “Hey, Sugar” kit. I love the color combination, and the retro vibe it adds to the page. To finish the project, I simply added my journal lines along the circumference of the donuts, and added the date to the project. Here is the complete project:
I love when i can bring my ideas into a reality, and this is the case with this layout. It was all possible using this month’s “Hey, Sugar” kit. This is a must have, even if lots of pink is not your thing!.
