Happy Thursday Clique Kits fans! Erica here with you today and I am so happy you have joined me today and I can not wait to share my layout with you! This week I am having so much fun with the July kit featuring Allison Kreft! Her Capture Life collection is full great pattern papers that are hip and fresh. The camera icons and bokeh add so much fun to this collection! I knew I wanted to use the Bokeh Teal paper as a background so I was excited to get started! Now I have said this many of times but in case this is your first time here at our blog I will say again, my scrap time is very limited! With 5 children ages 15-1 and 3 of them in sports I am one busy stay at home mom! I do create late at night most of the time but I still want things to be quick and simple for me! I am always pinning inspiration on pinterest or sketching my next layout in my notebook but when I saw the current sketch from Life.Paper.Scrapbook that our subbie Danielle posted I knew I had to use it with July Kit! Here is a look at the sketch.
Sketches are my tools to help me get my creative juices flowing and to create a nice layout in a small amount of time! I love this sketch and i used the 6 blocks as tiny layouts and just had fun with each block! I also pulled out the Pinkfresh Studio exclusive kit that I just received to add a few of the fun elements and stamps from this kit! It is no secret that the Clique Kits girls love all things Pinkfresh Studio! Here is my completed layout!
I also used some of the July add-on items in my layout! The Studio Calico wood enamel dots are beautiful and I think go great with this collection. You will also see I used the Echo Park View Finder Die as my circle elements in the corners. I used some vellum cardstock to die cut them and I love the look! These two add-on items are still available in the Clique Kits shop right now under July School Store! I hope you enjoyed my layout using the current sketch from Life.Paper.Scrapbook! If you have never visited their site please take a moment and do so. Our fabulous Clique Kits member Danielle is on the Design Team over there and she does amazing work with the sketches and challenges! I would love to see you create something using this sketch and our July Clique Kit! You can share with us on Facebook or upload to our Flickr Gallery!
