Hello Everyone! Erica back with you today to share another layout using the January 2018 Rhapsody kits! I am having so much fun creating with both kits! This month the design team was given a challenge to work with one of our cutfiles from 2015! This file is one of my favorites and we are giving this file away FREE this month! Make sure to head on over to the Clique Kits shop to download yours! Here is a look at the cutfile!
I started out by using my scraps from my first layout to back the cutfile. I also used a few other papers from the TN kit and one of the cut apart sheets from the main kit. I pulled some vellum from my stash as well to add to the cut file!
So pretty..right? I just love the colors in this kit! This kit is very very feminine but I wanted to show that you can use for boy layouts as well! Especially little sweet baby boys like our Liam Jay!
Once I had my photo picked out I started adding lots of layers behind the photo. First using scrap pieces and then cutting into more of these beautiful papers! Of coarse adding some vellum from my stash! I just love the look of vellum! I did crinkle up the edges of the papers a little bit to add a little bit of texture!
I really love the alpha that comes in the kit but I wanted to use a different font for this layout. I found the perfect one in our November 2017 kit! You can find it HERE if you are interested! I just love how this alpha flows and just feels softer to me with this layout!
I added Liam's name to the bottom left corner of the photo where I had some white space! I just love how it looks! Once I had his name down I glued down the photo and began embellishing my layout! Since I really want the background to stand out I like to keep the embellishments simple so I added some of the flowers from the main kit and also pulled out the Simple Stories sticker book from the January TN Kit!
I found a 6x12 Cocoa Vanilla Studio sticker sheet in my stash from a past kit and the colors went perfect with this kit! I added a few of these stickers to my layout as well! This came together very quickly once I had the background cutfile backed! Here are some more close ups and the final layout!
We would love for you to use this cutfile along with usthis month! Share what you create on Facebook or Instagram! We would also love for you to join us in The Clique Facebook group! Grab your free file HERE and I hope to see you in the Clique!
