January 2016 Clique Kits Blog Share

The January 2016 Clique Kits called "Alegria" 
was  so fun to work with! 
I enjoyed the bright happy colors in the Fancy Pants Designs
"Happy Place" collection!

Published in Scrapbook And Cards Today Magazine 10th Birthday Issue Spring 2016  

Layout 3 and 4: I couldn't wait to try making fringe hearts like the new release from Maggie Holmes that debuted at CHA this January. Took the Fancy Pants Designs Happy Place 6x6 paper pad( add-on in the Clique Kits shop)to make the hearts and the main kit 12x12 papers to add to the layout... so fun!

12x12 Layout page 5:Used the exclusive Clique Kits January 2016 Cut Files that came with your kit, to cut the butterflies on my Silhouette, and backed some of them with 6x6 " Happy Place" add-on paper pad. Black patterned paper background, tags, die cuts, feathers, labels and enamel dots all from the kit and add-ons.

Layout 6: Happy Place

Layout 7: GO, used spun sugar distress ink and peach gelato to watercolor the black and white text paper.

 The Clique Kits exclusive January cut files for the rows of butterflies on the left side of the page.
