Aloha My Scrappy friends!! It’s that part of the month when Clique Kits does their monthly blog hop and design team members and other crafters who get Cliques share some of the things are creating with their monthly kits. The March kit this month is the “Hell Yeah” and is packed with tons of exclusive goodies. I have really been enjoying using this kit which features Studio Calico Seven Paper Goldie designed by Ashley Goldberg. If you are following the Pep Rally Blog Hop then Welcome to my blog.You probably came from Kim’s blog, if after reading my blog post you want to continue the hop there is a list at the end of the post with the whole line up. You will end up at Charity’s blog!!
Here is a quick look at the “Hell Yeah” March Clique Kit.
For the layout I made for the hop I decided to go back and use the circles from the cut file that is available to download with you kit. Each month with your Clique kit, there are free cut files and printables. They are always fun and coordinate with the month’s kit perfectly!! Earlier this month I made a layout with their circle cut file. I had tons of smaller circles leftover, and I really didn’t want to throw them out.
I decided to cover about 2/3 of the layout with these circles. I tried to eyeball them but get them mostly evenly lined up.
For the bottom 1/3 I used the peachy pink stripe from the paper add on. I really hadn’t touched my paper add on and there is some really fun and pretty papers, mostly from Photoplay. They are pretty girly so I knew it would be perfect for a layout about my daughter Leilani.
Many of the 3X4 cut parts have encouraging words or phrases, also perfect for Leilani. I picked the one that said, “With brave wings she flies”. the cut apart/journaling card was in a gorgeous teal color too. a good contrast to the blue in the pattern from the circles up above.
In our kit we also had this really fun gold and silver crape paper. I really wanted to use that. I love all the texture it could give to my layout. I made a fan out of each color twice. I pieced them together in a semi circle. There was a gold and silver piece together. I tucked them one each side of the photo, knowing that I would add some other goodies with them.
I love how it, looks peeking out from under these hand cut flowers!!
I handout some of the floral clusters for embellishments and layered elements on my layout. I tucked them around the crape fans and near the bottom of the 3×4 card. some of the flowers I added pop dots for dimension.
I also cut some of the hearts out of one of the other patterned papers in the kit. These tiny hearts were perfect to mix with the exclusive die cut embellishments. I used one of the journaling tags with the fans.
I used the roller phrase stamp for a fun detail on the background near my clusters. The black ink really pops.
I used the other cut file with marque words for part of my title. I used a darker pink patterned paper so it would add contrast with the circles on the background. I also used some gold glitter thicker words for my title. I wanted more gold on the layout since I had gold with the crape fans.
I finished my title with the black alpha stickers that matched with the Goldie collection from Seven Paper. I love this font, it is just so much fun and the perfect size. I added this under my photo, to flow down the whole layout.
There is my classic layers behind the photo, which is also on pop dots. I finished the layout with Heidi Swapp gold and hot pink Color Shine. I journaled on the back of my layout, since it would have been really hard to see handwritten journaling on the front. Plus I wanted to write something sweet to my daughter. With this being in our family album I figured it would be nice to have some journaling that is hidden, and not everyone would read. Something just for her. Because she is so special, strong and brave. She gives me so many reasons to smile!
Here is a look at my finished layout.
You can also watch the process video I made to go with this layout.
I hope you have been enjoying this blog hop so far. I love seeing all the inspiration that all the crafters share during the pep rally. It always gives me a boost to get up and create something!! I hope you continue on and check out Charity’s blog!!
