Clique Kits - September challenge

Hi everyone! Did you see Clique Kits is having monthly challenges now? They will be revealed every first Saturday of the month. This month Pinkfresh Studio is sponsoring and if you join in, there's a chance for you to win a Pinkfresh Studio goodie bag worth $25!

You can find Pinkfresh Studio products very often in the Clique Kits, so I took out my September Study Abroad kit and made a layout for this challenge. Of course I also added in some of The Cut Shoppe cut files that were designed for this kit.


I used the Pinkfresh Studio enamel frames, washi tape, wood veneer arrows and geo tags.


Now it's your turn, we can't wait to see what you'll create for this challenge. You can link up your project overhere at Clique Kits

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

DT The Cut Shoppe - The Wonder of It All

I have a new layout to share today for The Cut Shoppe. This time I used the Borderlines Too and Around The World cut files. All papers and embellishments are from the Dear Lizzy  Day Dreamer collection.

I picked one of my favorite pictures from our Canyon road trip last year. We cycled along the south rim of the Grand Canyon, which was a 21 mile ride. Even though it was a tough ride with all the elevation, I would totally do it again! It was the most amazing bike ride ever.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Clique Kits - Leaving on a jet plane

Today I'm sharing my first layout created with the Clique Kits Study Abroad September kit. Clique Kits is teaming up this month with The Cut Shoppe and this is one awesome combination. Ashley designed some fabulous cut files that go perfectly with this month's kit.

I love the strong blue colors in this picture I took during a flight and they worked so well with the papers in the kit. These papers are from Studio Tekturek, which was a new company for me. I loved playing with the bright colors and wonderful designs!

The This Way background and Here There Everywhere cut files are from The Cut Shoppe, designed for this kit. And don't you just love this yellow alpha from Jillibean Soup? It's available in the Clique Kits School Store where you can find extra matching-to-your-kit goodies each month.





Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

My fave beaches

Hi everyone! When I started scrapbooking, back in 2004, all my layouts were double pages. I simply thought that it looked prettier in my albums. All of a sudden there was a turning point and I never ever made a double pager again. Last week I thought it was fun to try a double pager again and oh boy, I was struggling with it. It was so hard to come up with a design and I forgot how much work it was.

Luckily there are always some awesome cut files from The Cut Shoppe that come to the rescue! So I went for the Centered Chevrons cut file to create my backgrounds and this was a good opportunity to use up my scraps from the Basic Grey Highline collection. I also added two buttons from A Flair for Buttons. I think in the end my double pager turned out fine, but it's not very likely you will see another double pager by me again soon ;-)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
