Clique Kits-You Do You

 

Hello again friends!  I am over on the Clique Kits blog today to sharing a travelers notebook spread using the breathtaking February kit.  In case you haven’t seen the kit yet here is a peek at all the goodies in the kit.  You can check out the kit and the extras in the shop here.

For my spread I knew I wanted to use the “you do you” acrylic piece as the focal point and theme to drive my spread.  With all the light and whimsical colors in the kit I knew that creating a spread doing a little personal reflection would be perfect.

For the right side of my spread I paired the acrylic piece with a photo of me from January.  To add a little more color to the acrylic piece I backed it with a few different papers from the kit.  I simply glued down the acrylic to the paper then used sharp, fine tip scissors to cut around the acrylic.

For the left side of the spread I needed to create a home for my journaling.  To create the pocket for my tags I stitched down an embossed piece of vellum on three sides.  I tucked a few tags from the kit along with a few tags I created from coordinating patterned paper.

To add a little light embellishment I added a flower from the die cut pack and a little gold tab on the edge of the journaling pocket.

I love the final spread!  I think it is so important to take the time to include yourself in your scrapbooking.  Years from now I know I will love reading about my thoughts and feelings at this point in my life.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Don’t forget to share you travelers notebook spreads with us in The Clique group on Facebook!  We love to see all your creations.

And don’t forget…You Do You!
