Fun in the Sun!

3

The Fun in the Sun cut file was provided with the Clique Kits July Kits: Regatta. I have been doing a lot of white backgrounds lately and almost always start with a white cardstock base when designing a layout but this time I challenged myself to try a different approach! The red white and blue naturally work together and I just had to use some of the super playful die cut embellishments from the Fancy Pants Designs Poolside ephemera.  How cute are those swimming girls!

A smaller amount of green and pink accents balanced the french nautical palette in the background.

Last but not least I really love the flair in the kit this month designed by Cecily Moore! Her style is modern and fun and she has been an amazing addition to the Clique Kits graphic design team this term. The Clique Kits exclusives add a unique touch to every kit! I love to see what everyone in The Clique does with them, don’t you?

Adventure! Clique Kits July Main Kit Regatta

7

Hi lovely scrapbooking friends! I have another layout to share today using the amazing, inspiring Clique Kits July Main kit! The papers in this kit from Fancy Pants Designs Poolside collection and the Kesi-Art papers coordinate so well. That is the beauty of a curated kit subscription– the job of finding supplies that work together is done for you giving you more time to enjoy the design process!

This is another cut file I used my Scan N Cut machine to create. I love how the kit papers look backing this cut. Here is a close up!

The first thing my daughter did on her visit home from the mainland was jump in the water! She is living and going to college in a place without the ocean nearby and she misses the endless summer and lifestyle of living in paradise! I would be more than thrilled if she moves back to Hawaii once she finishes her degree. I have so many photos of beachy fun and am definitely getting close to killing my July kit with them! Thanks for visiting today!

Clique Kits July 2018 Main Kit

6

Here is the first of a series of layouts to come using my Clique Kits July Main Kit: Regatta.

ACS_0298

I started with a sketch I had of a dragonfly, which I scanned in to my new toy the Brother Scan N Cut 2 machine. I then created a repeating design in the machine, which I cut from 12 x 12 white cardstock and then layered on some mixed media. To create a variegated blue splatter design I started with some Tim Holtz distress oxide ink from the shop, followed by some ink sprays in different shades of bright blue.  When I was happy with my dragonflies, I bent the wings up a bit to give them some dimension when adhered only down the mid section.

The rest of the layout came together really quickly with one piece of Kesi Art patterned paper, one card cut from the Carta Bella cut apart paper, and one rubber piece  and several chipboard pieces (Freckled Fawn) from the kit.

And there you have a very fast and easy mixed media layout! I hope you enjoyed this layout and stay tuned for lots more to come using the Regatta kits and more!
