A Passion for Printables and Cut Files Part III
I am really trying to maximize my kit usage. I LOVE getting kits because it keeps me stocked with fresh products that inspire me. I don't know if I ever would have gotten anything from Pinkfresh Studios on my own, but I LOVE the little wooden bits that have come in the kits and LOVE that washi in the Summer School kit (drooling). And in order to do that, this month I went ahead and 1st printed the printables when they arrived (I wound up printing them fully twice and another sheet of them one additional time). This inspired me to go ahead and create a card which can be viewed on my blog. After printing out the printables I took a look at the pics of the kit contents at the website and decided that I would cut out all the cut files in black cardstock (last month I cut them out of the gold foil in the kit as my first step and I USED a ton of them). After the kit arrived in the mail, I went through some photos that I thought I might want to use and printed them out so I had my photos to hand when the urge and time to scrap came together.
This appears to be magic. In the past I would forget that I had printables and I may or may not decide to haul out a cutting mat for my cut files and it would irk me that I wasn't using everything I was getting as an exclusive. I mean that's the best reason to be a part of the Clique, right?
I went to a comedy show with friends this May and was SO EXCITED to use this awesome kit to scrap the memories of this show. I took a LOT of photos of the performers and printed my favorites. The 12x12 photo is a TERRIBLE phone photo of the four of us who went together and this page came together SO QUICK. I picked out the papers and the embellies seemed to pick themselves out.
I used one of the cut files to make my own stencil and made some chevron arrows to add to the embellishments that came with the kit.
I “Plunged Into Watercolors” with the Summer School Class over at Clique Kits this week and was inspired to play with some watercolors to back one of the cut files from Show and Tell, which I also used with a printable, a bit of patterened paper, an epoxy sticker from Pinkfresh Studios and an exclusive Flair Button from Clique Kits. The photo here, I'm not sure if you can see, is of my ticket stubb, they keep the tickets at the door of this venue (though I was told I could ask for one after the show... I didn't.)
Keep on pursuing your passion for printables and cut files Charity. The Clique Kits gals are so thrilled to see how you use up your kits and stretch them to the max with the digital exclusives!
