Study Hall: Let’s Get Dazzled!

Hello friends!

Melissa here with you today and I’m sharing a card using the June Aquarelle Kit. For this card, I wanted to highlight the awesome Shimmerz Dazzlers you can get as an add-on from the shop. This stuff is so much fun! It’s, essentially, modeling paste that already has the color and lovely sheen to it.

I googled some ideas on how to use it. I loved what I found and definitely wanted to translate it to the smaller scale of a card. Here is the full photo:

I just love how the Dazzlers give this card a little “oomph” for the background.

What I did was super simple – I used a mask that I had in my stash and smoothed the dazzlers over it with a palette knife. I was careful to not leave it took think but still have enough dimension. I also love the messy look in which it seems as if I scraped off some of the Dazzlers off.

It didn’t take long to dry so, I was able to complete this card rather quickly. At least, quickly when I think of how long modeling paste can normally take to dry!

While it was drying, I begin to layer the top part of my card. I used bits and pieces from the patterned paper, the vellum and die cuts. I even broke out the sewing machine and added a little bit of stitching.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

I hope you enjoyed this card today. And, I hope you get a chance to go dig around in the shop for add-ons. While June is winding down, I know many of you are just now digging in to those June kits. Don’t forget to use up the scraps to make a few fun cards, too!

I’ll be back next week with another card and the fabulous Dazzlers!!!

Hello  everybody! I am sharing my very first layout using the July Clique Kit. I love the pretty papers and embellishments in this kit. And I really like the Pretty Little Studio paper, flair and transparency. Fun kit! The colors make me so happy.

I tried to keep this layout simple by adding some yellow and blue Shimmerz mists in the background. I added a 1/4″ border around the edge of the white cardstock using a ruler and a black pen. And because I couldn’t get enough of the pretty transparency, I cut the “always” image out using scissors and added a puffy sticker on top of the transparency and adhered it to the bottom of the layout.

I cut the flowers from the Pretty Little Studio cut-apart paper and used a foam square to make the middle of the flower pop off the page. The leaves are actually Altenew stamps!

 

I used the transparency to cover one of the die cut tags above the photos. And I tucked strips of paper “branding strips” slightly behind the photos.

We hope you love this month’s kit as much as we do! Thanks for visiting today.

Field Notes-Enjoy the Little Things

CK- Field Notes -traveler notes - header

Hello friends!  Candace here with you today to share a quick travelers notebook spread.  I love documenting little everyday moments in my notebook.  Today’s moment captured and documented was my little guy going to preschool. To document this I used the new traveler’s notebook kit along with a few papers and embellishments from the main kit.

To start the spread I punched three, 3 inch circles out of various patterned papers in the kit. I chose papers that were light in feel and theme to match my photo.

For my photo stack I layered papers & embellishments from the kit.  I wanted the left side of the spread to feel very organic, like the papers and embellishments just fell on the paper.

For the right side I wanted a more organized feel.  I continued the circle theme with my embellishments, over lapping a few of the circles.  I added a large “R” from my stash to represent my son’s initial.

To tie the right and left sides of the spread together I repeated the acrylic white stars across the spread.

Such a cute and meaningful layout!  I love how it came together and the moment captured and now documented.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Give mixing styles a try on your next travelers notebook spread.  Try mixing an organic and organized style all on one spread!  Have fun!

Hello friends! Maryám here to share a new project using the digital exclusives files of this month. If you are a subscriber you can find them here, or if you are not a subscriber you can them here.

As you can see on the right side of the spread I put my photo, the title and some embelllishments, but on the left side of the spread I decided to create a kind of a pattern paper using the flowers printables of this month.

Here is a quick tutorial of how I did the pattern paper:

1.You have to open a new file on photoshop with the size of your travelers notebook’s page.

2. Now, you have to go to “file” and then click on “place”, in that way you will can add the png elements that were included on the printables folder.3. Once you have the flowers right on the file, you are going to duplicate the layers over and over again. In that way you will create your own pattern.

4. If your pattern it’s done, save it, and send it to print!

Here are some close-ups and some extra details:

The camera is from a chipboard sheet from the beautiful Oasis collection, and the leaves are rubber shapes from Pinkfresh Studio.

I hope you liked my pages and if you have any questions, please put them in the comments below.

Have a wonderful day!

Clique Agenda: June 2017 Monthly Spread

Hello, CK friends!

Donna here sharing my last post for this month of June using the Aquarelle kit.

ck-jun17-mainkit-6_1_orig

as well as some of the exclusive printables in the kit

ck-jun17-cliqueprints-web3_3_orig

First, let me show you one of the tricks I learned along the way. I’m sure I am did not come up with this original idea but I will share it anyway. I use a template as you see in the image, to cut the tiny little squares in my monthly spread.

It’s not really perfect but the difference is not that noticeable, so it’ll do. First, I measured one of the squares and used this tag (it’s quite sturdy so it can be used over and over again) as a template.

Use a pencil (so you can erase afterward) and trace around the area you want to cut. I keep this template nearby so it’s ready when I need it.

Here is how I decorated my monthly spread for June using the kit. (Note: stamp used from my stash and not included in the kit).
