Clique Kits: Guest Designer

Hello and Happy Saturday!!!  Today I am sharing a final layout created with the Clique Kits March: Play Kit and some of the CK exclusive Cut files...

To create this layout I started with my fun faux watercolored background.  This background was created by spritzing old plastic with spray mist and smoothing it onto my white cardstock.  This was then set off to dry.  Next I uses a gray cardstock and one of the patterned papers from the kit to cut the wreath cut file with my Cricut Explore Air 2, and I layered them together facing different ways.  I used the inside of the cut from side B of the same heart patterned paper to fill in the inside.  I LOVE how this turned out, and it was one of my first time using the Clique Kit Cut Files.  After layering some other patterned paper along the bottom half of my page, I added my cuts and used various embellishments from the kit for dimension and to create interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I've inspired you on how to use your Clique Kits!
