Weekend Vibes 12×12 Scrapbook Layout | A Cherry on Top Crafts Design Team

Hey friends! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! Today I am up on the A Cherry on Top blog sharing a layout using the Paige Evans Go The Scenic Route collection.  This collection is so fun and colorful and I have seen it used for so many different types of layouts!

I found a cut file from Lacey Ann Designs that I thought would be perfect to go along with the photos. I backed it with a single piece of pattern paper from the Paige Evans Go The Scenic Route collection. I wanted to add the cut file to the page at a diagonal just to switch it up a bit and love how it turned out. I used a piece of white American Crafts White Textured cardstock as my base and trimmed it down to 11.50×11.50 which is usually the size I use when I want to mat it on a piece of pattern paper.

I pulled out both of the Go The Scenic Route ephemera packs and pulled a bunch of the florals and butterflies out to add to my page. I like to add some elements directly on the cut file. I think it brings attention to the large title piece. Popping these elements up on foam adhesive gives lots of dimension to the page. One of my favorite foam adhesives is the black foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L!

I used one of the puffy stickers and layered it on the butterfly adhered to the cut file. The puffy stickers in the Go The Scenic Route collection are so pretty and I just love the soft feel of them! If you have not yet picked up this sticker back you can find it here in the ACOT shop! It is really a great set and can go with so many other different collections. To finish up my layout I matted it on Paper 8 from the collection. I love all the colors in this paper and think it really makes the layout pop. To see the full layout head on over to the A Cherry on Top blog HERE!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have been inspired to use the Paige Evans Go The Scenic Route collection! Have a wonderful day!

This month we are using mood boards as our inspiration.

I pulled inspiration from both boards. I loved the soft pink tones in the first board and falling snow. In the second image I loved the stars so made sure to add some stars on my layout. I went into my stash of products from A Cherry on Top and pulled out some older but just as fabulous stuff! I really loved the pink in the Honey & Spice collection from Heidi Swapp so I used some of it to back a new cut file from Cut To You. I thought the Color Flow paper would be the perfect paper to back all the trees! Using one patter paper to back all the trees at once made it quick and easy to get this file backed!

I also pulled out some of the Crate Paper Snowflake collection which is a beautiful winter collection! There is a specialty paper in this collection that has stars with gold foil on it that I thought would be fun to fussy cut! I used some of these fussy cut stars to back the stars on the trees of my cut file.

I wanted to create something soft for my background so I used some vellum and tore it into strips and adhered down to a piece of white American Crafts Textured Cardstock. I distressed the edges of the vellum with my Tim Holtz scissors and love how it turned out. To add a little extra to the background I used some gold mist to add some splatter to the background.

I pulled out just a few embellishments form the Snowflake collection like these little houses and tucked them in next to the cut file. I added a chipboard tree from the Snowflake collection and some word stickers above my photos! The photos are selfies from my first holiday drink from Starbucks this year! The holiday drinks are always my favorite and it is a new tradition for my daughter and I to go and get one and purchase a new holiday mug!

Thank you so much for hopping with us today! I hope you feel inspired to create with one of the mood boards we shared! If you do create a project using one of the mood boards please tag us on Facebook, Instagram or upload into the Cherry Gallery!  I hope you all have a great week and let me know in the comments if you are Starbucks holiday drink fan!

Good Times | Jillibean Soup

Hello Everyone! Today I am sharing a layout that I created for the Spiegelmom Scraps & Scrappin Happy Studio Instagram Hop! I love both of these ladies and the products they offer in their shops! I was very excited when Jody asked me to join them in this hop!

I pulled out my Good Times cut file that I gave out to my February crop attendees and some Jillibean Soup Garden Harvest collection! The colors in this collection make my heart race. They are just gorgeous and can be used for so many projects! I wanted to document the group at my crop so I printed out one of the photos we took in black and white since we had so many colors going on in the photo. 

We had so much fun at the crop and I am so thankful for all these wonderful creative ladies! I used some American Crafts smooth white cardstock to cut my file and also as my background paper. I pulled out some Catherine Pooler inks in coordinating colors and adding some splashes of color to the white cardstock. I then picked out the patterns of paper that I wanted to back my file with. It is super simple to trace the letters and cut them out to add to the cut file.

I love to add the die cuts tucked into my word cut files like this. The Jillibean Soup Pea Pod Packs are jam packed with beautiful pieces! I also added some tiny black heart sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps and an epoxy heart from Scrappin Happy Studio!

To last thing I did was add one of the washi stickers from Jillibean Soup to the bottom of my page and some fun tabs to the top of my photo. Here is a look at my completed layout!

Clique Kits-Layout Share

Hey Everyone!  I have been super busy over the last few months but feel super blessed to be doing something I love and with some amazing ladies!  Clique Kits has really taken off and we could not be happier!  We will be celebrating our one year anniversary in April and it has been such an exciting year!  If you have not yet been to the Clique Kits site I would love for you to take a moment and have a look around!  Today I wanted to share a layout I created with our February kit.  My scrap time has been reduced a little but I do try to make time to be creative!  Our February kit featured the Serendipity collection from Dear Lizzy and was jam packed with goodness!  I used one of the exclusive cut files for my background and backed the cut hearts with pattern paper from the kit.

Most of the embellishments came from the kit but I did pull some out from my stash like the Pinkfresh Studio pink dots and some wood veneers.  The photo is from my daughters 1st birthday party.  She was totally digging into her cake and having the best time!  She did eat the whole thing and then passed out in her chair!  I had so much fun creating this layout and the cut out hearts were a lot of fun to back with the pattern paper!  I hope you enjoyed my layout today!  Clique Kits has some amazing kits planned for the rest of the year!  You will want to get on the our wait list so you can enjoy a monthly kit delivered to your door!  It is like Christmas every month!  Each kit is carefully planned and packed with so many products including unique indie/homemade items and Clique Kits Exclusives!  We also have a private Facebook group for subscribers but if you are looking for a new kit club or community you can shoot me an email at erica@cliquekits.com and I can get you added to the group!  
Thanks so much for stopping today and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
