Clique Kits February Pep Rally

Hello!  Welcome to the February Clique Kits Blog Share! You would have come here from Erica's beautiful blog, and if you didn't make sure you start at the Clique Kits blog so you don't miss out on any inspiration.

I'm so excited because today we're sharing projects made with the gorgeous February Clique Kit "Hot Mess" featuring the Shine collection by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper, and of course amazing exclusives designed to coordinate.  

I've been working though this kit very solidly throughout the month, and being on blog duty certainly helped!  I made two layouts for this blog share, and for the first one I wanted to focus on using one of the Just Nick exclusive cut files I hadn't used yet.  My layout is about my sister who visited us in 2012 (she lives in London).  

I still have lots of the zebra ribbon left, so loved adding some to the chipboard tag.

I added the XOXO cut file onto the bottom left corner of my layout.

My second layout is about Brielle on her first birthday, and when I saw the calendar paper I knew I had to use it for this page.  I started with backing some parts of the heart die cut with papers and sequins, and then built my design around the frame photo.

I popped up the chipboard banner on pop dots for extra dimension.

I cut the April card from the 6x6 paper pad, and the pink splatters are the mini Hot Pink Colour Shine I got in my kit.

Of course I had to use the crown for my princess!

 Thanks so much for looking!  Next on your hop is Candace's lovely blog.
