Give me Sugar! Layout by guest designer Rachel Lowe:

 

Hello everyone well this is my last share as a guest designer for Clique Kits and it has been such fun!

I have loved working with the stunning Malibu Kit!

And here is my layout titled Give me Sugar! for obvious reasons!

I just adored the CK August exclusive ice cream cut file and just couldn’t resist using it.

I used the ombre striped paper from the main kit papers for the ice cream cut file and then used the sequin mix to finish them off.

I loved the puffy stickers and I have used the quote puffy sticker in keeping with my theme….give me sugar!

I have foamed mounted my photo so I could tuck embellishments under it like the ice cream and popsicle die cuts. The hexagons are from the sticker sheet.

I added the emoji face die cuts, because who isn’t happy eating ice cream!

I have finished my layout off with sewing a border around my page and adding the cut file word Sweet (in white to keep my page soft).

Here are some close up photos for you:

I love scrapping ‘no people’ photos like this, it is important to remember such things as favourite foods, seasons, books etc as they are a sum of us!

Thank you so much for stopping by this month to check out my layouts and I hope they have inspired you in some way!

Yay! Layout by Rachel Lowe:

Today I have my second layout using the gorgeous Malibu Kit and yes I am still swooning!

Despite it being winter here in Australia it is so fun pulling out last summers photos and reminisce!

I totally fell in love with this sun cut file (July 17) and my creative process went from here.

I used a phrase from one of the stickers in the kit (slightly altered as I wanted the word fun instead of good) and cut it with my Silhouette Cameo. I then backed the words with various colour papers from the kit. I added the word FUN using the silver thickers from the kit and an exclamation mark to add texture and visual interest.

I love creating embellishment clusters and I added one on the sun cut file adding the gorgeous exclusive flair and Colour Cast aqua palm leaf.

I then added another cluster at the bottom of my page, all girly things and adding the pretty pink acrylic shell.

I finished my layout off with  sequins and a emoji happy face sticker.

I chose to only attach the centre of the sun the rays would appear to be moving.

I am not a fan of flat layouts so I tend to add elements of different heights or add foam tape to chosen embellishments.

The sequins are just delightful in shapes and colours and adding them randomly to a white background page really adds some sparkle!

Guest Designer Rachel Lowe – Love Summer Layout:

I am so thrilled to be here as a guest designer for Clique Kits all the way from Australia!

When the Malibu kit arrived it was a swoon moment, how beautiful is it!

I have created a 12 x 12 layout today.

I love white on white and so I started with using this wonderful Clique cut file Love, which is the Valentine 2016 cut file.

I knew I wanted the theme of my layout to be Love Summer.

I then chose another Clique cut file which was the August 2016 cut file as it reminded me of a Hibiscus flower.  When I cut this I kept the centres of the leaves and then cut the petals from the patterned paper.

I wanted my Hibiscus cut file to have height so I foam taped the petals and leaves.

Now for the fun part, embellishing! I created a polaroid shaped mat for my photo and added some random machine sewing on it to add texture.

I hand cut the mermaid from the journal card paper and scattered the sequin mix around her.

I created a cluster embellishment to the left of my photo, layering for visual interest.

I added a sticker heart to the top of my page adding a word sticker Summer. Often my title is not prominent on my page but more of a subtle theme that is evident through out my layout.

Here are some close up photos for you:

I love simplicity and pretty, that being my aim of this layout. I hope you agree!
