This month I used the Origins kit and one of the best selling add ons- the Maya Road steel geometric heart die – to create the major elements of this layout. First I used the die as intended to cut some of those lovely hearts from the Simple Stories Life in Color patterned paper. I also used the die as a template to cut two heart shapes from the Bella Blvd acetate paper in the kit and I used my WeRMemoryKeepers Fuse tool to adhere them into a pocket which I stuffed with sequins.
I was super excited about how this embellishment turned out! (sequins from Clique kits and Pinkfresh Studios). I used one of the mist colors that coordinates with the Origins kit (Diet Cola) along with some watercolor paint to create a mixed media background for my layout.
These Prima watercolors have been flying off the shelves in the Clique Kits shop. They are so convenient in the adorable little metal box and the colors are so vibrant! I cannot wait until more colors are available!
I loved the mirror acrylic laser cut piece that was a CK exclusive in the April kit. It would make any layout extra special. And the Bella enamel hearts went perfectly with my yellow and greyscale color scheme on this layout! They really added a pop of happiness!
I finished my background with some Kelly Purkey stamps from my stash. I have found that where I used to sew, the fuse has become my new timesaver, for better or worse. Sigh.
I know you will enjoy the rest of the hop! Please leave comments for chances to win an April Kit, (or choice of prize of equivalent value if you are already a subscriber), spread the word and invite all your friends- the more the merrier! Have a happy, happy day!
