Art Studio: Let’s Be Lazy

Good morning everyone! I am back with another mixed media layout. For this layout, I decided to play with a variety of embellishments and printables using the April Clique Kit! I used the Pink Paislee and Bella Blvd. papers for my base. Then I printed this month’s printables on white cardstock and hand-cut the images using a pair of scissors. Once I had the squares adhered and my photo mat adhered to the bottom of the grid, I splashed some mist on to the layout. Once dry, I added the embellishments and photos.

I just love the pretty colors in this month’s kit. And the printables from this month’s kit really compliments the kit so well. The circles at the top was a last-minute decision. I love this patterned paper from Paige Evan’s collection and knew that if I didn’t use the left-over scraps from this paper, it would go in the trash… so I hand-cut them and added them at the top of the layout to create a fun border for the layout. I used one of the Clique Kits exclusive journaling cards to hand-write my journaling.

Thanks so much for visiting today! Have a wonderful weekend!

Create Beautiful Art- Geek Lab

 

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing a page I made with the new April kit, “Jellybean”!   It is absolutely gorgeous and full of amazing, bright colors. For our Geek Lab, I am going to be using cut files, AND using the exclusive PRINTABLE that comes with the kit!

There were two particular things that inspired me for this page:  a piece of the exclusive flair that says “she’s crafty”, and a piece of the Bella Blvd “Make Your Mark” paper with lots of colorful paint strokes.

I had a photo of my daughter watching a Bob Ross video on YouTube and painting, so I thought these items would be a great way to highlight this photo.

I began by cutting out some large paint stroke shapes from a digital cut file and also the word “Art”.  I planned on backing these areas with the bright paint stroke paper.

 

I used a dry, 1″ paintbrush to stroke some areas of dark paint and over my title area and for some journaling areas.

I framed my photo with a cut file frame to make it look like a picture frame and hung it with some twine and a brad from my stash.

I embellished with cut outs from the exclusive printable that includes phrases and lots of tags and other elements.  There were also quite a few Bella Blvd bits that had sayings relating to making art and creating, so I had to add those in!

 

Finally, I added some stitching and doodled some stars.

 

You can watch my entire process here:

 

Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget about the printables that come with the kit!

Hi everyone. I have a fun layout to share with you using the January Clique Kit. There is a lot of pink in this kit so I figured this month was the perfect month to start creating layouts for my sister using her engagement photos before she starts throwing hints at me. I am surprised she hasn’t asked me yet. LOL. I decided to use Just Nick’s digital cut file for my title. I love this cut file.

For this layout, I used the “Love” cut file from Just Nick’s Shop. You can purchase it here! I love scrapping in a grid. It’s super easy to do and it’s so much fun decorating the squares with bits and pieces of embellishments found in my stash or kit. 🙂

I stamped the 04/29 on the back of a scrap piece of paper and created my own little banner so that I could use the “2017” flair. That is the date these two little love birds are getting married.

I love the little word label printables that came with the Clique Kits. They make great fillers for just about any project. I can always find a good use for them.

Geek Lab: Life is an adventure

geeklab

Hello everyone! 🙂 It’s Maryám here to share another project with the raskog kit. Today I’ve decided to use the printables of this month to create a layout.

When I saw this paper immediately I thought in the printables. So, I’ve opened Photoshop and I’ve changed the size. I’ve also added a little bit of journaling and I’ve printed them.

This was my result!

Here are some details.

Printables to Planners

geeklab

This months Clique Kits printables are pretty darn crazy cute!  With the boxes, flags and phrases, I thought it would be cute to use them in my planner since they match this week’s spread.

Yes, I could have just printed the pdf on sticky paper, but I wanted to customize them to EXACTLY fit the boxes in my planner. For this week, I used my Erin Condren Life planner with the vertical boxes edition. I’ll show you how to resize them and also make custom stickers below.

I imported all the .png’s into my Cricuit design space and added them all to my canvas for resizing.

Each box is 1.5 inches wide and 1.9 inches in height so I used the edit function to unlock the proportions and type in the dimentions.

I also made some layer sticker sets to print off as is as well.  Like scrapbooking, layers of stickers to add dimension is always a great way to be creative with your layout.

The best part is that the program is that it fits them on a page for me in such a way as to maximize each sheet of paper. It will print the page first and then it will be ready to kiss cut. Load the print out, turn your dial to custom to choose sticker paper, and it’s all ready to go!

Have I told you how much fun (and cheaper) it is to make your own stickers?!

The program bleeds each picture so the cutter cuts just inside the designs box.

Brilliant!

Now it’s time to have some fun!

See how lovely they fit in those boxes!? Perfection!!

BTW I used bleeds from the designs and cut them out, like where it says “Hello June’. Then I add those to my planner as well!  Adds a little extra highlighted box fun!

On the other side of the coil. I’m off to a good start!  It looks a little bare right now, but if you follow me on Instagram, I’ll show you each day this week how I’m filling it in and adding more stickers as well!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

XOXOXO
