Under the Stars

I love summer! This is not a secret to those I know and that are close to me! I love summer! When I saw the Simple Stories: Simple Set - Under the Stars, I knew I had to get my hands on it! At first I thought, when would I use this?!? But then I realized we would be spending quite a few weekends out at the lake this year! So it only made sense that this collection was in my stash.

What I LOVE about Simple Sets by Simple Stories?!? It is enough supplies to create a perfect amount of projects without getting bored of the paper line or it your projects looking too similar. The Simple Sets come with (4) double sided pattern paper, (2) 12x12 Journal Card - cut aparts, and (2) 6x12 Sticker sheets.

Now here are two layouts I created with this set. I actually created three,  you can see the third one on the Clique Kits blog - Frozen In Time.

These kits are just so perfect to me! I have a few scraps left that I can whip out another layout or even some cards. And plenty of stickers left over! I highly recommend these Simple Kits!

thanks for joining me today! I hope you have a scrap filled rest of your week!

CLique Kits - July Projects

Thanks for joining me again today. I want to share more projects using Clique Kits July Kit - A Midsummer Nights Dream. You can buy this a la carte in the Clique Kits shop right now! Sign-up for the Kit Club (no minimum month commitment) for  $29.99 (plus shipping). Subscriptions open to international residence!

Okay now for a few projects I created with the July kit!

First layout is of breakfast I was preparing at the lake the other weekend. I love the color of the fruit in the bowls against the island butcher blog and cutting board! I used mainly neutral tones on the layout itself and popped it with yellow!

This layout I used scraps from the kit! Many of the 2x2 insta looking cards (which were on a 12x12 sheet). I layered them with pattern paper and loaded them with photos, stickers, ephemera, die cuts and other little bits & pieces. This project highlights our weekend at the lake the other weekend.

I also made a card with this kit. I used a embossing folder to add some texture to white cardstock and highlighted a die-cut from the July Kit (available in the Clique Kits digi shop).
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you found a little inspiration! Join me tomorrow for a few layouts I created using the Simple Stories - Under the Stars Simple Kit.

Have a scrap happy day!

Clique Kits Blog Share - July 2014

Welcome to my blog! I'm so excited to share a few projects with you today using the July Clique Kits - A Midsummer Nights Dream!! I love the summer feel of this kit and open ended uses for this kit! Today I'm going to share a few projects with you! Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a few more projects using this kit! I got a total of 5 layouts and 2 cards made out of this kit and still have a few leftovers!

Of course Clique Kits LOVES to challenge our clique members so this months challenge is:
The challenge: "Captured on Film"Ideas: using filmstrips, viewfinders, or polaroids on your layout, and/or featuring photos from a play, seeing a play / production or a movie (think sitting in your seats or photo outside with the marquee.  **Remember no photography during a production unless noted it is okay.**
The view finder was my  Film aspect of this layout. I added some die cuts from June, July and Pinkfresh to my layout. And of course highlighted my photo of my husband and puppy sleeping one morning. These two are beyond sweet in the morning. I see how they sleep as I'm usually the first one awake. Spock adores Matt and Matt adores Spock!

I also want to share a card I created with this kit! The Crate Paper Open Road ephemera became a focus on this card. I layered three different ones on this page and added the Echo Park stickers to enhance these lovely cards!!
