Clique Kits January Kit Algeria

Hi friends! Today I am over on The Clique Kit blog sharing a layout I created using the new January kit Algeria featuring Fancy Pants collection Happy Place. You can visit the blog here or you can head over to the shop here and pick up a beautiful kit!

For this layout I wanted to keep the design pretty simple. I think that sometimes it is just as difficult to edit embellishments and papers out of a layout as it is to add them in. I love this photo of my little guy and I wanted the photo to really be the focal point and central focus of the layout. I felt that if I added too many embellishments it would take away from, and distract from the photo.

***Side note: For Christmas I received the photo editing program Rad Lab. I used Rad Lab to edit this photo in Photoshop and seriously…this program is AMAZING!!! You can check out their website here. I will share how to use this program in an upcoming Geek Lab. You will love it!***

Back to the layout… For the background I used white card stock and added a simple white line of stitching on the diagonal eye line of the paper to keep the eye moving on the diagonal. I placed my simple photo stack close to the center of the page and added some simple embellishments from the kit to frame the photo. To finish off the layout I added some enamel hearts and some ink splatters again along the diagonal to stay in the theme of the layout.

Here is a look at the final layout…


And a few close ups…



Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a beautiful day!
