The Small Things...March 2015 Clique Kits Pep Rally


Welcome to the March 2015 Pep Rally with Clique Kits and featuring the March Kit J'Adore.

This month's challenge:

Add a POP of Neon to your project! This month's kit is filled with beautiful pastels contrasted with black and white. It also mixes and matches BOLD patterns with soft watercolor brush strokes. In my opinion- trendy and genius of our spotlight designer Amanda Rose and the Clique Kits kit design team ! Now it's your turn to show us your interpretation of the challenge to add a pop of neon to a project!  Get inspired by this fun neon sign by Kate Spade, NY.



This past Friday the 13th marked 90 days of marriage for me! (and my DH) So we had some fun with "reviews" for one another, talked about lots of stuff and went out to dinner at the local Cheesecake Factory (I'd never eaten food that wasn't cheesecake there before.) I LOVED using this kit for this layout. (P.S. We both passed our reviews and will be staying married!)



This kit was full of so many lovely bits and papers, I used it to make two layouts about my grandparents here and here. I also made a minibook that I'll be sharing on Thursday this week. I started this layout by coloring the door cut from one of the papers with some neon colored pencils I picked up a while back at my local Paper Source, the nI cut out that neon pink heart from an acetate card in the kit and stapled it to one of the exclusive 3x4 cards. Then layered that over a fantastic black doily (BTW Clique ladies I'd LOVE to have more of these to play with.) I knew I wanted to use a piece of that yellow neon polka dot acetate and I had some other little paper scraps on my table so I started layering. I wanted that lovely wood veneer tag to be a part of my layout... I was kind of going for a grid style layout but it's not quite squared up... oh well I love it anyway. Then I had gotten the Bella Rouge add on paper pack (that's actually where the background paper came from) and I used some of those bits for layering as well. I took some of my favorite phrases off of the Cosmo Cricket and piled them on... LOVE THOSE! Then I added the strip that was at the bottom of the same 3x4 card that says The Small Things to the bottom of the door with my tiny attacher and added the heart lock and key that were listed as add ons and found applicable flair to add. Then I decided it was time to stop. No ink splatters this time, no edging of papers, just stop . I love how it turned out, picture, journalling and some pops of Neon. :)
