Just Clique Kits Pep Rally- You & Me Everyday with process video

Hello everyone!   I am super excited that I am part of this months "Pep Rally" for Clique Kits!

During the Pep Rally, you will hop along to Clique Kits subscribers and DT blogs to see how different people have used the June Kit, La Dolce Vita.  Look at how gorgeous this kit is:

Today I am sharing with you my THRID page I have made with this kit.  I am lucky to be part of the Just Nick DT, and this month we are collaborating with Clique Kits.  I will put links to my other pages below.

I wanted to pull out the rainbow of colors for this page, and here's what I came up with:

I clustered all my "rainbow" bits on the left of the photo.  I dug through the kit to pull out rainbow papers, sentiment strips, and fussy cut little rainbow bits from one of the patterned papers.

On the right, I stuck to black and white and grey with just a little peek of color on the date banner.

 I decided to leave the acrylic pieces on the photo clear to add some depth and interest without taking away from the photo.

If you would like to watch me create this page, I have a process video here.  I'd love to hear what you think and am always welcoming new subscribers!

If you'd like to check out my other pages with this kit, I have two other process videos as well:

Here is the hop order for today. Be sure to check out the other amazing creations people have made with the kit this month!

Cool Dude! FREE cut file from JustNick

Hi all!  I am super excited to share a page I made with the FREE cut file for June from the JustNick blog!

Here is the image of the file:

And here is the page I created!  I edited the file just a bit by adding another *cut* square around some of the shapes in the file to create more layers to add onto the front of the layout.  

Here's a few close ups to see how I layered some of the pieces:

If you would like to see how I create this page step by step, check out my video here:  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you enjoy the video and your free cut file! Stay scrappy my friends!
