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!


Art Studio: LOVE


Hi everyone. I LOVE Amy Tangerine’s “Finder’s Keeper’s” collection. The patterns and colors are so HAPPY. I just love it. I’ve had this collection on my desk for a few weeks, waiting for the right photo to show up so I could scrap it with this gorgeous collection.

I had my sister snap this photo of the three of us on Thanksgiving. Initially, Edward was in a Minecrafts sweatshirt and pants, but mom bribed Edward with M&M’s if he’d change for the picture. She has been bribing him with M&M’s since he was old enough to eat. HAHA. How come bribes work from grandma, but not me?

If you love this collection as much as I do, feel free to visit the Clique Kit’s Shop. There are a few left for purchase. Click here. I am a sucker for die cuts and tags so naturally, I used several pieces on this layout. Once I was finished with the layout, I realized that I wanted a blue background, rather than a yellow so I changed it. Also, I wanted a different color thicker so I painted mine! I decided to keep the paint a little light so that it would show a little white for a distressed look.
