Clique kits + The Cut Shoppe Blog Hop













Hi, and welcome to the Clique Kits + The Cut Shoppe Blog Hop!  We have lots of inspiration along the way, so I hope that you are able to stop by each and every blog.

I recently received the wonderful September Study Abroad kit from Clique Kits and couldn't wait to get started.  I combined the kit with some awesome cut files from The Cut Shoppe. 





For my first project, I created a layout about a subject that is very dear to my heart - coffee!


Coffee First



I simply cut the cut files out of white cardstock (heart doodles and coffee first card) and then added watercolors to them before adhering onto my page.  I love the originality and contrast that it brings to my layout.  I love that little coffee cup paperclip included in the kit, So fun!


Here are the files I used:



and my second layout features one of my favorite subjects... my dog Roxy!


Today go...

Once again, I combined the fun kit with cut files from the shop.  I also added some spray mist and droplets to my background to create a fun background for my photo.

I used 3 different cut file sets on this layout:







Next on the hop is the lovely Lee-Anne.
