Aloha my scrappy friends!!
I had really big plans to join in the Clique Kit Blog Hop today!! I love their blog hop, I love looking through the design team and it’s members and see all the fun layouts everyone created throughout the month with their kit. But.. My kit didn’t come in time. With my moving situation I just didn’t get it in time. I am so excited to see the kit in person and play with it. I am currently still using Clique Kits May Kits to create with.
I thought that I would share at least something with you that I have worked on throughout my time in the hotel. I know I really haven’t shared too much on social media. I am trying to scrap but definitely not doing it as much as I had hoped but, sometimes that’s how summers go right?! You just have to roll with the punches.
The May Clique Kit, was using FancyPants Designs Attwell collection along with some Basic Grey Urban Lux. this collection was super artsy and very colorful.
Here are the two layouts I made so far with that kit.
This first layout I decided to use this cut file I had cut ahead of time to bring with me. I really liked that black and white script paper, and it looks really cool peaking out from those pluses.
This layout is about my kids and a trip they took to the Zoo with some old friends of ours. Even though they are completely different photos at different parts of the Zoo I really wanted to use them together so I could talk about their friendship and not exactly the Zoo. These kids loved playing together and they had something in common, and that was their lives had also been once changed by Leukemia too.
I used lots of layers. and lots of color. It is a little busy but I think it’s fun. I kept some white space open to help counter balance all the color. In the end I choose not to mind that I made a layout with tons of colors that are bold. I really don’t mind switching up styles and colors in my albums.
This second Layout. I kept fairly simple. I layered my papers behind my photo and left bigger areas of the papers showing. I used some circle elements from the die cut pack in the kit. But also cut some other circles from old printables from Clique Kits and from the Fancy Free 6×6 paper that had circles on it.
I used the old Shine Thicker sheet that had the gold glitter shapes on it, for some fun on the page. I loved the puffy stickers too and added those in different areas around the layout.
I really love how this title turned out. Sometimes I really like to take the time to have long and fun titles. The journaling card that said Works Like A Charm sparked the thought to make a cool title. using different fonts for the title also added interest to the title.
I love this photo of My oldest Daughter Leilani and her dad. They have a special relationship, I think mainly because she is the oldest. She is the first child he had, and she captured his heart from the minute she was born. I love when I get a chance to make layouts that share the differences and special points in my kids relationships with me and their dad. Hopefully they will appreciate them later in life too.
I hope you all are having a great scrappy week. I hope you head over to the Clique Kits blog (below is their line up, if you want to check it out and comment along the way for a chance to win a prize!!) and actually check out their blog hop today. There are some amazing layouts being shared.
