Yearbook: Highlights of 2016 in one Layout

yearbook

 

Hello there, how are you? Happy New Year Everyone! Caroli here and today I want to share with you this layout that basically summarizes how 2016 was for me.

I must say that  it was such an awesome year!I was blessed with too many good things and I got to learn from the bad ones, I only can be thankful for this year, so I wanted to document my happiness in a layout.

I used the beautiful January Kit HEY SUGAR, which features the awesome product from Crate Paper, Simple Stories and Fancy Pants. This kit is already available for single purchase in the Clique Kits shop here, so if you are thinking about getting it, go hurry before it’s all sold out!

Of course for this projects I used a lot of photos, each one representing something I loved during 2016: being pregnant, the birth of my baby boy, my little girl turning 8 with the greatest party I’ve thrown so far, spending a lot of time the 4 of us at home during winter (my husband was on medical leave and I was on maternity leave, so it was almost like vacations, LOL!), a flawless return to work after almost a year of maternity leave, and being chosen by 2 of my favorite manufacturers for being part of their DT.

Of course there were bad moments and sad times, but I chose to learn from them and just let them go, always looking on the full glass 🙂

I decided to cut the numbers 2016 and fill the negative space with the beautiful golf foil vellum included on the kit. Also, I filled number zero with a circle grid and paper circles.

The gorgeous flower paper by Crate Paper included on the kit was asking to be fussy cut, and so I did. I used some of the flowers to decorate.

Since there were a lot of pics, I barely decorated this page; I used few enamel dots and some puffy hearts by Fancy Pants, love the Joy Parade embellishments ❤

The black Thickers included on the kit made the perfect contrast for all the color in this layout. I love the shade effect of these ones!

I hope you like the idea and concept behind this layout ans try to document your 2016 too. I love using a lot of pics on a single project and think that combining circles and regular photos is such a great way to give variety to the composition, don’t you think?

Have a great day!
XOXO – Caroli

Geek Lab: All About Circles!

geeklab

Hello everybody! Caroli here and today I want to share with you my love for circles. Yes, I do love circles in any size, any design on my layouts, so circle paper punches are one of my fave tools ever.

For this layout I used my good old circle paper punches and manage to make a fun layout filled with lots of circles using our fabulous March kit HELL YEAH!

My idea was to use a lot of circles but keep the clean look and white space on my layout, so I made sure that everything happened on the left side of the page.

I love the combination of black and pastels of Goldie collection featured in this kit. I punched different papers and arranged the circles in combination with some of the diecuts included on the exclusive ephemera set of the kit.

I layered a journal card and a tag from the ephemera behind my pic, and attached everything with a stappler and also using this lovely gold bow-shaped clip, also included on the kit.

For my title I used one circle-shaped label and the alpha by 7 Paper included on the kit. Below it I wrote my journaling. As you can see the pic features my little brother and my baby boy, both are very important men in my life and in this layout I journal about it 🙂

Here is my finished layout, super simple, colorful and fun, totally my style!
