Art Studio: Scrapping your child’s artwork

Good morning everyone. I have been really excited to share this adorable layout with you. Since I am playing in the Art Studio today for Clique Kits, I thought it would be fitting to scrapbook a layout using a scanned copy of a drawing that my five year old did at school. He was asked to draw a picture of his family, but he decided to draw a super hero version of himself and his pet pig, Hamlet. It’s so cute. I LOVE that all of Edward’s drawings are “happy”. He’s always smiling in his art which means that he’s overall, a happy boy.This layout was super easy to create. I simply sprayed some yellow mist onto white cardstock and started layering some pieces of patterned paper and stickers together. I used Ali Edward’s stamps at the bottom to complete the look. Without the stamp, I felt that the layout was just hanging. And I didn’t feel like this layout needed much journaling since the picture speaks for itself. If you like using stamps on your projects, we have some in the Clique Kits Store!

Supplies: Cardstock: My Mind’s Eye, Patterned Paper: Stickers: Crate Paper, Button: Buttons Galore, Stamps: Ali Edwards, Mist: Heidi Swapp.
And here are a few close-ups. I just love all the details on this layout. Everything looks so good together.
Thanks for stopping by today!


Document the Little Moments


Hey everyone Erica here with you today and I hope you are all having a fabulous day!  Today I have a layout to share and the photo I am documenting is not from any special event or any big day in our lives but just a small moment in time I wanted to capture with my youngest son Eli James!  Now from the picture you would think it is just a silly selfie of myself and Eli just hanging out!  Well in a way yes…on this day all 4 of Eli’s older brothers and sister were off to school.  It was just the two of us and Izzy our boxer at home!  Now this is very new to us and we are adjusting to this new schedule.  I of coarse am loving all the one on one time with Eli but he sure does miss his big brother Gavin so much!  Eli and I were out on our steps waiting for the bus to arrive!  He just could not wait for the kids to get home!  I snapped a photo real quick to remember this sweet little moment!


Photographing the big events is something we all do but remember to also get those small moments.  The little bits in time that we will always want to remember like waiting for the bus, taking your little one to get his favorite ice cream and watching it melt all over, holding hands, toys all over the floor, the way your husband sleeps!  These tiny moments that we all just may look over and not think to capture but will one day wish we had photographed it!  Well now is the time!  Get those little moments on film and get them scrapped!


I used the new Dear Lizzy Documentary collection for my layout and the papers are just gorgeous!  You can find a paper pack in the Clique Kits shop along with a few other items from this collection!  I went with  my go to design these days and just layered up a bunch of strips of paper and added my photo!

I also added some embellishments from my stash like the Seven Paper Vellum hearts I picked up in the Clique Kits shop last month, some enamel dots and of coarse some Black Velvet Heidi Swapp Color Shine ink splats to finish it off!  This moment is one I do not want to ever forget and I am so glad I will have it in an album for Eli James and the rest of my babies to look back on.  I hope you enjoyed my layout today and I hope you take some time to capture some little moments in your life!  I would love to see them so please share them by tagging Clique Kits or posting them to our Facebook page!
