Geek Lab: Good Times

Hello, it’s Nicole with another fun summer layout I created using this month’s Clique Kit. Ah, the colors are so pretty! I can’t get enough of this kit. I really like the ice cream motifs in this month’s kit so naturally, I had to use them. Luckily enough, I had a photo to go with my theme too. Love when that happens.

 

I decided to mix a few patterns together for the background. Then I used several chipboard, stickers and die cuts to embellish my layout. This layout came together pretty quickly!

I tucked a few stickers behind the filmstrip die cut to make it pop! And there goes the smiley face again. I can’t get enough of these.

I added a piece of string to the “Good times tag” then adhered it below the photo. Then I added a few more die cuts and stickers behind the photo.

Geek Lab: Beach Boy

Hello friends! I hope you had a great week. I must say, I am loving the colors in this month’s kit. And since I live 4 blocks from the beach, I have a  good amount of beach photos to choose from. I am a big fan of taking candid shots and scrapping them. It’s a good thing because my son does not like it when I take his photos. Sigh

 

I am sharing a layout where I played with  a variety of patterned paper to create a fun background for my layout. I selected a few patterns that I felt, matched the photo perfectly. Once I had the background designed, I added the photo and started adding embellishments.

I decided to add the vacation vibes frame on to the photo to use as a place to add my journaling! I used a slick writer so my ink would not smear. Then I added a few die cuts! LOVE the wave die cut.

I used the chipboard alphas from the July Kit paired with the silver metallic alphas from this month’s kit to create a fun title. Oh, and I had to add the smilies! So cute.

Geek Lab: Me

Hi everybody. Nicole here with a layout I created using goodies from the shop! If you haven’t been to the shop, you might want to take a look. We have some fabulous product marked down! And yes, everything used on this layout is available in the shop, but hurry because they might not be available for long.

For this layout, I decided to use the Pink Paislee “Cest La Vie” paper pack, acetate alphas, stickers and Jillibean Soup’s vellum foil tag.

 

I really like the patterns in the acetate paper that comes in the paper back so I decided to use the vellum tag to cut part of the patterned from the acetate paper to layer on the tag. I must say, it looks so pretty!

I cut several pieces of patterns, sentiments, shapes from the cut-apart paper and acetate to use as die cuts for this layout since I did not have any on hand.

I love patterned paper because the possibilities are endless. You can mix patterns to create a fun background for your layout, cut the paper into a patterned using a Silhouette or cut bits and pieces/sentiments from the patterns to use as die cuts for your layout.

 

Before adhering the acetate embellishments to your layout,, make sure you peel the plastic film off… Let me just say, I did not…

Thanks for visiting today. Be sure to check out the shop today for some great deals!

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!

Geek Lab- April Cut Files

This month’s cut files are super fun to work with!  I used both the floral, and the phrase files on my page below with the April kit, “Jellybean”.

 

 

I loved the lines of these flowers, so I wanted them to stand out. I didn’t back them with paper and cut them from white cardstock so that they would contrast against the colorful background.

The flow of the font of the sripty title goes perfectly with the floral cut file.

The background paper is a gorgeous periwinkle ombre print.  I added some white gesso and pink and seafoam mists which I smooshed on the gesso.

I used the Pink Paislee paper in the kit (paper #14) that has the overlapping circles and cut them out and folded them in half.  I was originally going to make a banner from them, but I decided on just leaving them like little clusters on the page.

I did very little embellishing, only adding a few gold foiled accents and some enamel dots.  I wanted the colors and the cut files to be the star of the page.

 

You can watch my process from start to finish here:

 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Locker Room: Breathe

Hey guys! Maryám here again, and today I’m going to share a simple layout with a big photo, of course, using the December kit (by the way, if you want to get the kit, we have some available at the shop.)

For today’s layout, as I said, I used a big photo as the main element of my page. I wanted to keep that moment when the picture was taken.

I cut two strips of the Pink Paislee Vellum paper included in the kit. I added one on the top and one on the bottom. Then, I chose my title, added my journal, and at the end, I added two cluster of embellishments.

In this cluster I used a cut file like a printable, that I designed for the shop, you can find it here.

Here, as you can see, I stitched around my title with white thread. I love how it looks, because gives a little bit of texture and dimension.

Also, I wanted to show you all of my process doing this layout.

I hope you liked this layout. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I will see you the next month.
