Clique Kits - September 2014 Blog Share

Hello, welcome to my blog and the September Blog share for Clique Kits. If you are starting here, be sure to head back to the Clique Kits blog and see what we have to share from the beginning!

Did you see we are also offering a FREE cut file for today's blog share?! I just adore the paper airplane that I created for printables and flair, so I turned it into a cut file!

Alright, time to share my project! I am sharing a layout today that I created with a photo I took last week. My boss's wife came by the office last Monday and brought me this sweet treat! A cookie and Vanilla Latte from Starbucks! It was the perfect treat on a Monday morning!

As you see, I really focused on the greens in this kit! I've been waiting for the perfect layout to use that beam paper and this one just fit! I also used the negative of a speech bubble cut file, cut from kraft paper, painted  and stamped "More Coffee Right Now" (stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop).

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Now, it's time for you to see even more inspiration with our September kit!

The Cut Shoppe & Clique Kits Blog Hop

Hello!! You should have arrived here from Danielle's blog! Welcome to the Clique Kits & The Cut Shoppe Blog Hop!

Today's Line up!
Lacey Gasper (You are here)
Gina Lideros (Your Next Stop)

Today I'm going to share pieces of a mini album. This is a works in progress and the whole album will be shared next week at the Clique Kits Blog Share on Wednesday, September 24. But I really wanted to show how I used the die cuts in this album!

Lets start with the cover. I layered on a layer of the chalkboard paint and using a chalkboard bistro marker I wrote the word happenings.
 The inside cover I covered with specialty paper I had in my stash and then layered on top a die cut from the Cut Shoppe! I love the texture and visual interest it gives.
 I also love the notebook doodle hearts from the Cut Shoppe. I cut these out multiple times and used them throughout the album.
 This is one of my favorite journal cards I added to this album! I cut the Today Word Bubble from the Cut Shoppe's - Just Sayin' cut file. I cut this in vellum, placed it on one of my favorite journal cards from the kit and splattered it with white paint.
 This last page I have added those doodle hearts again (Told you I LOVE them!!)
Lets not stop there! We have prizes!! Don't forget to comment on each blog during the hop for a chance to win ONE of TWO great prizes!!
