Pretty Paper Studio: 30 Days of Creativity - Day 1 | Collection

Hello!
This month of August, Pretty Paper Studio will do a "30 Days of Creativity" once again. A prompt is given everyday and it's up to you how to interpret that word "creatively". Check out Pretty Paper Studio's INSTAGRAM account for the Design Team's take on the daily prompts.


This is my take for Day 1 | Collection:


I used a project kit from the "Take Me Away" collection by Pink Paislee.
The layout design is not my original idea. I saw how this kit was used and that's where I got the inspiration to use multiple, itty bitty photos. I have several random unused photos of my daughter and I thought this layout design is perfect for those.

First, I traced the shape of the letters with a wider opening than the others on post-it notes.


Place the photo where you want it and cover it with the post-it note.
I left a bit of space around when I cut the photos
Then back the other words with patterned papers (from the Take Me Away 12x12 paper pad collection) and acetate cards (also included in the kit). Notice I left the post-it notes on the photos. This is because I will use some watercolors later on and the post-it notes will protect them from unwanted splatters.

I used all the embellishments in the kit as well as some Dear Lizzy buttons to decorate my page

To spread the watercolor, use a piece of plastic to do so. The effect is awesome. Then flicker some for a nice splatter effect. 

Here are more close up shots of my layout
Use the foam dots (also in the kit) to add a bit of height to some of the embellishments


I love the addition of these colorful buttons


That's all from me today!

Clique Kits: July Pep Rally


Hello!
It's that time of the month for another Pep Rally!
Refer to my Instagram (IG) account to hop along with the rest of the participants!

This month, design team members and CK subscribers will feature projects created with the July kit "Pool Party"
I also used one of the exclusive store cut files
And here is my page

After cutting the hot air balloon cut file with my Silhouette Cameo, I traced the inner pieces on different patterned papers. I used dimensional foam tape to add a bit of height
I used watercolor paper for the clouds. I colored with watercolors and after the clouds dried, I stitched around with different crochet threads.
I fussy cut some panda bears, flowers and also made a few rolled paper flowers as addition to my embellishments

I enjoyed creating this page and I hope I get to inspire you to create with the July kit and its exclusive cut files!

Clique Kits: Summer Crush

For July, it is "ANYTHING GOES" so you can create anything you want.
This is my take using the Pool Party kit

Those pandas are so cute my daughter loved them so much. I fussy cut a lot and gave her a few to play with. To add a bit of texture, I splattered different shades of watercolors onto the background. 
I also used several of the exclusive July 2017 TN printables
Check out more about the challenge by reading this blog post.
