Hello Hello! I'm so happy to be joining you today for the Locker Room post here at Clique Kits!
Show of hands...Who gets a deer in the headlights look when they create the first one or two layouts with a brand new kit? And...who here is a boy mom like me and needs a way to make a more feminine kit work for our boys?? If you answered yes to either question..I've got some tips and tricks that I use to help you out!
The Rhapsody kit initially looks like a pretty girly kit...but wait, don't dismiss it right away...let's look closer... there is some lovely royal blue and aqua shades, lots of cute birds and phrases...perfect for a story about a little boy and his dog....and if this is only your first or second layout with this kit..I say go with a limited color scheme...in my case I pulled all the blues and greens and greys from the kits along with some black and white pieces and made a pretty pile of goodies that weren't too overwhelming but still left me plenty to play with...
I wanted to keep my layout clean so I borrowed a fun hidden journaling idea from a good scrappy friend and added some hidden journaling.....
And some lovely gold splatters to set off my title were the perfect finishing touch....
Here is a process video that includes some more tips and how I created my layout start to finish.
Thank you so much for popping in to say hello!
Have A Lovely Day!
