A Lovely Mashup {Clique Kits & Just Nick}

Hello friend,

Today I'm sharing a page that showcase two of my favorites. Products from the February Kit  from Clique Kits and adorable cut files from Just Nick Studio. I love it when my favorites come together because the outcome is usually something I adore.

I'm so thankful that my friend Kirsten lets me scrapbook photos of her littles. They are so adorable and she always captures such awesome photos of them. Such as this one. How cute is that little monster???


I love that this kit has so many masculine elements. From the patterns to the cork. It's so perfect to create a boy page! 


So, let's talk about those monsters. How adorable, right? These are from the cut file set called Happy Little Monsters. Perfect!!! I love throwing in a little bit of dimension with my pages so, I chose to mount two of them with pop dots. I think it adds a little bit of whimsy too.


Because this is a boy page and, because this happens to showcase a boy who is very active, I wanted lots of movement. The cork triangles are perfect for this. By placing them in a row, it guides your eye around the page. 


Sometimes, when I sit back and look at a page, I feel like something is missing. And usually a little thing like washy or embellishments like this gold tag work perfect.


Now, here is something fun. I used my Cameo and sketch pens to write out the Dr. Seuss quote below. This is very easy to do. I downloaded a few fonts that were from the Silhouette store that were specifically created for sketch pens. After figuring out the placement, I simply sketched out the words with the pens. I love how it looks like a typewriter!


And there you have it! 

Thanks for swinging by today!
