Hi there scrappy friends,
Zsoka here with you today with my first projects as a guest designer for Clique Kits! I’m super excited and happy to have been asked to contribute this month! Thank you guys for the opportunity!
The February kit, Bee You, is stunning! I feel so lucky that I can guest this month! I love blue and the colors in the Hazelwood collection are just fab! All the love for this kit!
For my first projects I picked out some blue and mint papers. My main design element on the layout is the wonderful CK exclusive cut file. First I tilted and cropped the cut file. I wanted to use different papers for the different words, so I separated Wander and Wonder from the rest. I cut the bigger part from white card stock and backed the two words with different patterned papers. I then cut the remaining two words separately from patterned papers.
I adhered the cut file on my background paper, placing Wander and Wonder in their original position. I hand stitched around these two to add some texture and interest. The flowers I only adhered in the middle and on the edge of the page. I love the dimension this adds.
Then I fussy cut these gorgeous flowers from another patterned paper, with some additional leaves, and adhered them with pop dots on top of my die cut flowers. Some leaves I added under the cut file, just to have different layers and create a more dimensional look.
I added some layers of tissue paper behind my photo and also tucked a tag and another card behind it. I wrote my journaling on this card. To draw attention to the journaling, I added two enamel shapes. I stamped the date, added some black splatters and done!
I also created a set of cards using the same color scheme. There’s a lovely cut apart sheet in the kit which I thought would be perfect for some cards! Really simple and quick (well…I myself generally spend more time on simple things because I never really feel like they are quite done ha!). I used some cork pieces, ephemera, enamel shapes, and fussy cut butterflies – all these I had left after creating all my layouts with the kit.
I hope you enjoyed my first projects and I could inspire you in one way or another! Thank you for stopping by today!
