Hello everyone! I’m so excited today to be sharing this fun layout I did, and have included a sketch for you, too!
In a few weeks, I am going to share a bit with you about how I have organized my Clip It Up Main Base to suit my needs. In a nutshell, it sits right next to my desk and holds some of my favorite things. ..you know, the things that you love so much that you hoard them instead of using them? I think a few of you probably know what I mean!
So for my project today, I challenged myself to actually use some of my favorite things from my “Wheel of Fortune”. That’s what I’m calling it. I guess you could look at my Clip It Up as a “Wheel of Fortune” in two ways: 1) I have spent a fortune on scrapbooking supplies and now they are hanging on my Clip it Up where I can USE them, or 2) I am so “fortunate” to have this awesome Clip It Up to store my “riches” on. I’m goin with #2.
I placed my Clip It Up on my floor, and placed my scissors on top as my “pointer” and gave ‘er a whirl (don’t spin too hard!). I know there are probably easier ways to randomly pick products from your Clip It Up, but I was going for the dramatic effect, plus it was fun and I love looking at my fully loaded Clip It Up from this angle!
After I spun three times, I ended up with these three packs of embellishments: some cork accents from Pink Paislee, some stickers from Sassafras, and some felt embellies from American Crafts. I challenged myself to use all three on a layout.
I was inspired by the bright colors of the felt pieces, so I had to do a page about Spring. I used some new papers from American Crafts “Hello Sunshine” line. The orange in the felt sun really picked up the orange of my daughter’s watering can, and the felt flower went along perfect for the theme.
I used some of the smaller stickers from the Sassafras sheet and layered them in clusters with the cork accents from Pink Paislee. The cloud stickers and the phrase sticker are from American Crafts.
I usually draw out a sketch in my notebook, then do my layout, and then convert the sketch to a digital image to share. So here is a sketch for you to jumpstart a layout! And I challenge you to use some of the things that you have on your Clip It Up when you create your page!
Thanks for humoring me and letting me share with you today! I am looking forward to using all my goodies on my Clip It Up and sharing my projects with you over the next couple of months!! And here is just a sneak of a project that I will be working on!
