Student of the Month-Alicia King

student-of-the-month

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.

Hello everyone!  Erica here with you today to introduce you to another August Student of the Month!  If you missed our first Student of the Month please CLICK HERE to say hello to Amanda!  I am so excited to introduce you all to Alicia King from the Polka Dot Barn!  I came across Alicia’s Etsy shop back in January when we were planning our March 2015 kit J’Adore!  She had the cutest carnival tickets that I knew would be the perfect little touch in our kits!  You will find all kinds of cute, vintage and unique items in her shop!

I used to daydream back in high school of all the cool things i could be making if i wasn’t sitting in class! now i have all the time in the world and i’m making use of it! i love to create and build things, design and dream. i do a little of everything from scrapbooking to sewing, painting, and reclaiming old things…
all with my four little rascals by my side and the support of my loving husband.
i love design and color, i love to mix and match everything from my artwork to decorating my home. it’s hard to say what my exact “style” is…but when you see it, you just know it’s ME! i don’t follow rules, just my heart. i love anything vintage, industrial, modern, rustic, country…
but what i love most is to mix it all TOGETHER!
