Hello and happy Monday!  It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today.  Did you follow along on the Just Nick/Clique kits blog hop over the weekend?  If you missed it, you'll definitely want to check it out for loads of inspiration and a chance at the giveaway! Check out this post here for a link to all of the participating blogs.

For this team up each designer used the Hot Mess kit from Clique kits and these exclusive Just Nick cut files....

This pairing was a perfect match!  In fact, I found the contents of the kit and the exclusive files so inspiring that I made several projects with them, two of which I get to share with you today! Here is the page I shared during the hop...

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'. 

It's hard to tell from the photos, but I actually cut the file four times, and adhered each atop of the other to create more dimension and a sturdier appearance 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.

My next page features the heart banner design.  I enlarged the file to approximately 7.75"x1.5", eliminating the bannered edges and opting for a straight finished edge.  I cut out five of the designs to cover a large majority of the background on my page, and slightly overlapped them on top of each other and underneath my photo.

The open hearts provided the perfect canvas for filling in with bits of pattern and color from the Crate Shine collection.  I even filled a couple of the hearts with the sequins included in the kit, for a little added detail and shine.

I used several of the stickers and a wood veneer piece to further accent and decorate my design.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  We hope you'll let us know how this team up has inspired you!
