TGI - Saturday!! Oh yes, Jody is back on the blog with a layout filled with lots of embellishments from this fabulous Show and Tell Clique Kit! First of all, I was totally enamored with the Heidi Swapp paper right away. Who can resist a big heart and all those fun words nestled inside?! Not this girl :) I just printed a bunch of my Instagram photos and decided to make our Sari the centerpiece of this layout. I matted her 4x4" photo with the light grey wood grain from Simple Stories DIY Boutique and added another layer under that as well, this time the Simple Stories black and white herringbone.
I added lots of texture and dimension to this layout as you can see. One of my favorite elements is the May Arts chevron twill from our kit! I carefully lined up the twill ribbon under my photo and slowly ran my sewing machine as I folded the twill over... and over again. There's no glue or adhesive used, just my sewing machine and some patience! I shared a picture on Instagram a couple days ago of this work in progress. We'd love to connect with you on Instagram so here's our page RIGHT HERE! You can also follow me (Jody), Gia, Lacey and Erica to see how we document our everyday lives and tie it all into Clique Kits! Ok, now here are some more close-ups!
Despite all the layers and smaller pieces in this layout, it actually came together pretty quickly for me. I cut apart many of the Clique Kits Spelling Bee words, phrases and little designs created by our own Lacey Gasper and added them through my layout with my favorite foam adhesive, along with these super fun Simple Stories stickers (like NEWS FLASH above). I also incorporated some lovey 8mm pink sequins, some ticket stickers from my stash and the stunning black and white arrow washi tape from our April Kit Debutante, which is on sale right now in the Clique Kits Store!
