Clique Kits Blog Share: Hazel & Ruby


You should have arrived here from Erica's blog!

Today we are so excited to be working with some awesome Hazel and Ruby products! I received some products for their Chalk it Up line as well as their Gone Typo line. Though the projects I will be sharing today were all completed with Chalk it Up! The creative bug hit and I created two layouts and three cards using these products!

The first layout is of my husband and I, pre-marriage. This picture was taken on our trip to the Twin Cities for our wedding week. I have a whole series of photos for each day (starting at 100) leading up to the wedding. I love how bright and cheerful these papers are. For the background I used Tim Holtz Distress stains, a Heidi Swapp stencil and embossing paste.

This second layout is a of a vacation that my husband and I took in January 2014. We got to spend 4 nights and 5 days at Secrets NOW resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! It was wonderful and a fantastic break from the cold and snow. I love the colorful frames paper. I decided to trim it almost in half and use the frames to highlight my photos as well as some journaling and title.

I also created some cards with these papers! I was really into the water color look when i was creating these first two cards. For the background I used water color paints to create a custom background.

The final card I created is a mini card (3" x 4"). I used Bubbles and Babbles Stickers to create this card. I popped a few up for dimension and stamped the word hello to the lower corner!

I love the contrast and the white space in your first layout!! the watercolors really bring it all together nicely.. oh I love that you folded over some of the paper corners too :) I really like layouts 2's vertical arrangement and how you trimmed out the spaces for your photos.. or maybe trimmed the photos to fit in those frames LOL.. Either way Lacey, I love it all!

I love the energy in these layouts and you gave me some ideas I have to try- like using the paper 'frames' literally as frames (Homer Simpson:Ummm Dope!)You know I am a huge fan of anything watercolor right now- cool how you can use distress stains to get a similar effect. Good to know!Very creative and inspiring stuff here!
