Remember happy day

Join Clique Kits this month for another wonderful challenge!
I made a scrapbook layout using the February kit "Hot Mess" featuring Maggie Holmes' Shine collection, to hopefully get you inspired :)

The design process of this page is pretty straight-forward. I flicked some black ink on the background paper first and let it dry. After cutting the heart cut file by Just Nick Studios, I adhered a 6x6 paper from one of the add-on papers you can find in the CK store as well.  Then I used some light pink thread and bundled it up under the heart cut file, really messy bundle.
I just tucked here and there several of the die cut shapes from the ephemera pack. This kit is really jam-packed! You will love all the embellishments included! To make the photo pop a bit from the background, I adhere a slightly thick cardboard under it. Instant "foam tape".
I wrote my journaling stuff in random places and used stickers to decorate some of the spaces


Do check out the CK blog and be sure to join us this month (again if you are always playing along with us) to win a fabulous prize!

Treasure the little details

This post was supposed to go live a few days ago and didn't notice it wasn't posted as scheduled. 
SO here is my second page for Just Nick Studio and very first post on the JNS blog


I used a past limited edition kit by Clique Kits featuring Bella Blvd Just Add Color collection (among other products from different manufacturers too).
I kind of deconstructed the cut file I used here, which is the Heart strings background.


and did a little bit of splattering and spritzing for subtle mixed media effect


 Can't wait to share my next Just Nick Studio project with you all in the next few days.

Sweetheart

It's day 5 of the Graphic 45- Petaloo blog hop today and my layout is up!

I used the Mon Amor collection and some gorgeous flowers by Petaloo

I did a little bit of mixed media on the background using gelatos, watercolors and a bit of paint diluted in water. I stamped some images too, very subtle to not overwhelm the over all design.

I used some metal dies and layered them with the Petaloo flowers. I used the solid/neutral color side of a 6x6 paper for the flowers

here are some more detailed shots of my page

My family

Hi everyone!
I mentioned before that I received some of the Clique Kits' December kit embellishments a bit late (Girl Cave featuring Pink Paislee Memorandum collection). I did a page right after receiving it and got to share it just today. I still have a few papers and lots of the embellishments left! I will whip up some more projects using those leftovers for sure. For today, I want to share this page

"My family"

These photos were taken last year, January 2015. Our very first family photo, decent ones lol!
Here are some close up shots of  the page details
Yikes.. I can't help but notice my face. So white in these photos lol :D



More projects coming soon, I really hope I get to inspire you with them.
Thanks for dropping by!

"Alegria"

This January, Clique kits is featuring "Happy Place" by Fancy Pants Designs

These are the pages I created using the kit

you'll notice that most of these are simpler than the usual pages I create. My designs depend on my mood and how I feel when I look at the papers and or in this case, the kit as a whole. I still like fussy cutting and layering and clustering. But on the simpler side.

I am loving the plain white background lately. If you know me, you now know I also do digital scrapbooking. I tend to lean to this style more often when I create digital pages. But I like how I can create instant masked effect in Photoshop lol! I'd like to do that on paper too, so I am figuring it out with some experiments from time to time.

This last page, I didn't do any mixed media or splattered some ink etc. I just simple layered the papers left on my stash and that's it. Took me longer to edit the photo and fussy cut the floral pattern lol (I edited the photo coz of the green specks on hubby's face. I have a tutorial on that in this blog post.)

Read more about these pages on the Clique kits blog.

Come back here in a couple of days for more "Alegria" inspiring projects from fellow DT members and CK subscribers in our monthly Pep Rally.
