Hello! Hope you're having a great start to your weekend. Our little one is sick with a tummy bug (we think) so not much fun. Today I'm finally sharing a layout I created with the August Clique Kit "Rio". This may just be my favourite kit yet, its totally gorgeous and features Fancy Pants' "Milly & June" and Cocoa Vanilla Studio's "Life in Colour" collections. I was totally intimidated by it when it arrived and was almost too scared to cut into it!
I decided to challenge myself to not use a cut file, and not do any hand stitching because I've been doing them on nearly every layout lately. I wanted to go back to my original way of scraping but in my current style. I choose a sweet photo of Brielle in Summer wearing her strawberry hat. I just adore this photo!
I love the large flair from the Millie & June collection!
The watercolour script card is from the Cocoa Vanilla studio cut apart pack. And the sweet bow is from the Millie & June collection.
I coloured the wood veneer "love" gold with gold stamping ink.
Here is a photo of the stunning kit.
I also made a process video, which you can watch below or on my YouTube channel here.
Thanks for looking!
