Clique Kits November Blog Share


Hello!  I'm so excited to be joining in on the blog share this month, and you would have arrived from the very talented LeeAnn's blog! I love the Tapestry Kit so much, it featured We R Memory Keepers Wildflowers collection, and I also got some of the Pink Paislee Cedar Lane add-ons.  I'm still creating with this kit, but today I wanted to share two layouts.  

The first layout is one that I made in an effort to just go with the flow, but also scrap quickly.  I knew I wanted to scrap this photo of Azaria and I, and I also knew I wanted to use the "love" card and the "notes" cut apart.  So my layout just flowed from there!  I also did something shocking, and used the butterfly paper as my frame!!!  I gutted out the middle first!


My title was built very easily with the Dear Lizzy puffy thickers incorporating the card.  I used a knife to cut out part of the black circle, then tucked my photo under.


I loved adding machine stitching, a doily from my stash, feathers that I cut out and sprayed with Colour Shine, and of course stickers.


My second layout features Sam during his first week of school ever (in 2012).  I recently printed this photo of him in the Autumn leaves, and decided to make a layout using the Cedar Lane products.  I used two leave dies and my Cuttlebug, and I love that they are embossed too. The gold elements don't seem to photograph very well, but the "Love You" is gold print on acetate.


I cut the leaves from the Cedar Lane 6x6 paper pad, and I made sure I choose a majority of simple patterns.  Sam loves that I tucked the fox in there too!  


The gold elements don't seem to photograph very well, but the "Love You" is gold print on acetate.  


I videoed these layouts too, so will have process videos up on my YouTube channel very soon :)
