Just Nick/Clique Kits blog hop

Happy Saturday!  Today I'm participating in a fun blog hop between Just Nick Studios and Clique Kits kit club.  If you are following along the hop, you should have landed here from Carolina Schulz's blog.   A $25.00 gift certificate to the clique kits shop will be awarded to one person who comments along the hop.  So, make sure to keep hopping and leave comments to be entered to win!

 
If it's your first time joining me on my blog - welcome, I'm so happy to have you here!  I had so much fun combining the Clique kits Hot Mess kit and exclusive Just Nick files and I'm excited to share the results with you...
 
 
 
The lined heart filled square file was my favorite, of the exclusive designs.  I knew at first glance that it would make the perfect 'memo board' background for my page. The original design was square, but by using the erase and weld functions in the silhouette software, I was able to join two squares atop of one another resulting in a taller design and more surface to my 'memo board'.
 
All of the Maggie Holmes Shine collection ephemera and stickers, included in the Clique Kit were a great companion to this idea and design.  They allowed me to create a pretty collage of elements that I clipped to my background and used to accent my pictures.
 

The wood veneer heart outline, just so happened to fit perfectly atop of one of the diecut hearts, and the various heart stickers included in the kit were a fun and complementary accent.
 

Tags are a natural element on any memo board, and there were certainly many to choose from in this kit.  I also loved that I could clip a couple of the transparent diecut tabs onto the horizontal lines of my diecut background.
 
 
The combination of this kit and the coordinating cut files are a perfect match, wouldn't you agree?  In fact, I've had so much fun with this pairing that I've made two more pages that I'll be sharing on my blog in the coming weeks.  I hope you'll stop back by to see them!
 
Thanks so much for joining me and letting me share my project with you today! Don't forget that A $25.00 gift certificate to the clique kits shop will be awarded to one person who comments along the way.
