Picture worth a thousand words -- featuring Clique Kits :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share two layouts I made recently for 2 challenges :)



I won a May Clique Kit and couldn't wait to dig into it! I made a total of 6 layouts and 6 cards with the kit!! It was full of Amy Tangerine's "Rise & Shine" papers and embellishments!!  :)


Here is my layout :)








I used the Kraft doilies from the Clique Kit as stencils on my page :)






And here is Kraft+'s inspiration for their challenge :)





And here is Let's Capture Our Memories sketch I used :)





And my second layout is again for the Kraft+ challenge :) 

I used the doilies from the Clique Kit in my first layout as stencils ... then I finished painting them fully yellow and used them on this page! :) 









Again ... here is Kraft+'s challenge inspiration :)






Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  8. Super cool layouts! I love that you think outside the box. My guess is that 99.999% of Grand Canyon layouts actually have a photo of the canyon and you've gone a different route - twice!

  18. What fun and playful layouts, Julie! Loving your photos, and I think these adorable kraft prints are so perfect to match the outdoorsy nature theme here. And the pops of yellow are super fun! Such a creative idea to use the doilies as a stencil first, and then as a painted accent last. Love these!
