Hello Clique Kit friends and fans!! I’m Angie Pond and I’m thrilled to be the guest designer for the month of April!
I was so excited to see all of the beautiful products in the Jellybean kit. The kit has such pretty papers from Bella Blvd. and Pink Paislee, some amazing exclusive pocket cards as well as some great embellishments.
I was also so excited to be able to play with the cut files that Clique Kits offers. Subscribers to the kit get access to exclusive cut files and printables and then there are other cut files that can be purchased in the Clique Kits shop.
I decided to use the cut file “Moment Captured” as my title. This is a cut file that will be available for purchase in the Clique Kits store in April. I cut the file on my Silhouette using some white American Crafts card stock from my stash. I backed the word “captured” using the beautiful vellum from the kit. I inked the edges of the cut file and outlined it in black as well.
I chose the blue polka dot patterned paper from Bella Blvd. as my background paper. That paper is called “Believe.” The pictures I used on this layout are of my sweet nephew, so I wanted to try to pull out the more masculine papers and embellishments. I wanted to add some more interest to that background paper so I decided to use a circle stamp and some black ink to add a few more circles.
The green paper that I used to mount my photos on is called “Magnifique” and it’s from Bella Blvd. as well. That beautiful gold foiled card is from the Bella Blvd. cut apart sheet called “Daily Details.” That gold foiling is just amazing and it’s scattered throughout this kit in the papers and embellishments. I used the b side of that “Magnifique” paper and a Fiskars scallop punch to create the scalloped border that runs under my photo area. I inked and outlined all the papers (except background paper) on this layout using black ink. Above my photos I used the paper aptly named “Make Time.” I love the repeating sentiment in the various colors and we should always make time for the things we love! Having small strips of those colorful papers above and below the pictures helps to tie the layout all together!
The circles under my title and in the bottom right were cut using the b side of the “Make Time” paper from Bella Blvd.
For the “XOXO” strip located on the bottom embellishment cluster, I simply used one of the cut apart cards and just trimmed one strip off. The polka dot heart is from the Bella Blvd. embellishments that come in the kit. I added a foam heart and some enamel dots from Freckled Fawn to complete that embellishment cluster.
I nestled in another embellishment cluster under the top of the t in my title, using a gold foiled heart, a foam heart and some more enamel dots.
My third embellishment cluster is located to the bottom left of my title. Once again using some more of the wonderful embellishments from the kit. I added gold and black splatters in each area as well.
I love the clips that come in the kit and wanted to use one of them. Honestly, I struggle with using clips even though they are so adorable. I decided to tuck the clip under my photo instead of actually clipping it to the photo. There really are so many possibilities and ways to use these embellishments.
I hope this layout will inspire you to use the wonderful Jellybean kit and those amazing cut files to document your memories.
