I am happy to be a guest designer on Clique Kits today! and i am loving all of your pages too! so much inspiration here ♥
this month’s kit just screams summer! just having got back from our family trip to idaho, i knew that our pictures from the lake would be perfect to use with the kit.
“Sand & Sunshine”
aren’t the gold alphabet stickers awesome?! and the gold pineapple washi tape and vellum worked so good with my photos ♥ i love to mix and match different embellishments for my titles.
made a mini pennant banner out of paper scraps and then used my sewing machine to stitch it on to my page.
a favorite tip to share that I do frequently is when you are trimming that edge piece with the bar code, save those scraps! because they make great border strips on your pages! i also like to run the edge of my paper with some scissors for that distressed look.
i love layering embellishments, and that pink flamingo ♥
“Hello there PARADISE”
this fabulous gold pineapple washi tape makes great borders…and I LOVE the mini polka dots in the background!
this paper was perfect for my title, just added the “paradise” embellishment!
and I love to cut out words out of paper, these were a good fit!
typed my journaling on the computer, and then printed on cardstock. I usually go for the printed look, but I have been better lately at using my own handwriting, it makes your pages more personable. and sewing! I just love adding little stitches here and there to my pages, thread is inexpensive and you can pick up a lot of colors to coordinate with your layouts.
“YOU & ME”
this was actually the first page I worked on using the Ambrosia Kit. I really wanted to use this picture, since we just celebrated 14 years of marriage, say what?!
and again I paired the little journaling card “look on the bright side” with “life is good” and went along with the rest of my journaling. just little things can make a great impact on a page.
