Geek Lab: Good Times

Hello, it’s Nicole with another fun summer layout I created using this month’s Clique Kit. Ah, the colors are so pretty! I can’t get enough of this kit. I really like the ice cream motifs in this month’s kit so naturally, I had to use them. Luckily enough, I had a photo to go with my theme too. Love when that happens.

 

I decided to mix a few patterns together for the background. Then I used several chipboard, stickers and die cuts to embellish my layout. This layout came together pretty quickly!

I tucked a few stickers behind the filmstrip die cut to make it pop! And there goes the smiley face again. I can’t get enough of these.

I added a piece of string to the “Good times tag” then adhered it below the photo. Then I added a few more die cuts and stickers behind the photo.

A few more close-ups:

Thank you for visiting today!

Geek Lab: Beach Boy

Hello friends! I hope you had a great week. I must say, I am loving the colors in this month’s kit. And since I live 4 blocks from the beach, I have a  good amount of beach photos to choose from. I am a big fan of taking candid shots and scrapping them. It’s a good thing because my son does not like it when I take his photos. Sigh

 

I am sharing a layout where I played with  a variety of patterned paper to create a fun background for my layout. I selected a few patterns that I felt, matched the photo perfectly. Once I had the background designed, I added the photo and started adding embellishments.

I decided to add the vacation vibes frame on to the photo to use as a place to add my journaling! I used a slick writer so my ink would not smear. Then I added a few die cuts! LOVE the wave die cut.

I used the chipboard alphas from the July Kit paired with the silver metallic alphas from this month’s kit to create a fun title. Oh, and I had to add the smilies! So cute.

Thank you for visiting today!

Clique Agenda: Let’s make plans

Hi everybody. I am sharing a planner page spread I created. Since I already decorated my summer months pages in my planner, I decided to use this month’s kit to decorate my October pages and added a few plans while I was at it. At first, I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off… but it totally works.

The adhesive patterned sheet in this month’s kit fit perfectly in the MAMBI planner squares. I simply cut a few out using scissors and added them straight on to the page.

I love the gorgeous mermaid so I had to include her on the spread.

I left plenty of room in the left margin so I can include notes etc.

What do you think? Are you a planner girl? I’d love to see your planner pages using this month’s kit! Post them to your Instagram or another social media account and tag us! If you’re looking for other embellishments to add to your planners, check out our shop!

Have a wonderful day,

-Nicole

Field Notes – Fun in the sun

ck-field-notes-traveler-notes-header

Hello! Here Réka is today with you, and I have traveler’s notebook spreads to share, featuring the gorgeous ‘POOL PARTY’ Traveler’s Notebook Kit!

ck-jun17-tnkit2_4_orig

When I got my Kit I thought a lot how to use the insert, maybe to organize my days as a planner or to write my favorite recipe on it but finally I have decided that I will be document our summer stories.

1-1

The ‘Fun in the sun’ cute file is perfect for every summer stories so I have cut it out of the pink paper with arrows pattern from Pretty Little Studio: Ain’t Life Grand – 4 x 6 Paper collection and adhered them onto my page. After I have used my favorite pink thread and I have embroidered them around. When you use a thin paper for the embroidery base like this you need to be careful, don’t let the paper tear and if you don’t push hard the needle, you can get lazier stitch as me now and yes, I really love it.

3

Next, the flowers, which were fussy cut out of a Pretty Little Studio: Ain’t Life Grand – 4 x 6 flowers pattern Paper and I have made some clusters on my pages. I love these flowers and every piece is hoard.

Some mists, words, the gorgeous pink camera ephemera and the cute ‘Ice cream’ clip went on my spread. You can find more clips in the shop here and remember you can use the code SHOP to get 30% off your total purchase.

This page is the summary page so I have printed the title of the first story on the vellum paper and adhered on it. I will fill in the blank page continuously with the next stories` titles which we will be collecting this summer.

Now, let’s see the next page.

4-4

For the left side I added my photo which was layered some paper and on the other side I have used the Hello card from the Pretty Little Studio: Ain’t Life Grand – 3 x 4 Cards collection. I have also used some beautiful flowers and the words stickers and the always title, which arrived with the kit.

5

Behind the Hello card I have put one tag from the June printable collection and I have written the funny story on it. I have attached with a white thread and made a little bow from it. Some mists and some enamels were the finishing touches to complete my spread.

I hope you enjoy my traveler’s notebook spreads and collect the summer stories. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful crafty day! Réka

Locker Room – Mini Album

CK- Locker Room - header
Hello everyone! Enza here with a mini album to share with you today using the beautiful July Pool Party Travelers Notebook kit.

ck-jun17-tnkit2_4_orig

The idea for my mini was to have a 2017 album with only one picture per month. I do this a lot. I use the same concept for my TN. I think it’s fun to look at random pictures and get a feel of how our life is/was during that given year. You will also notice there is no journaling. The reason for it is that I usually include the full stories in our Project Life albums. Sometimes I just want to look at pictures and pretty papers 🙂
egudor_July17_LockerRoom_Cover
The 4×6 cards from the Ain’t Life Grand collection included in the kit are just the right size. I started by cutting a few tag shapes from different patterned papers and adhered them back to back. I love how thick the papers are. There is no need to add extra cardstock in between the layers to make your pages stronger, which saves time and money 😉 Once all my pages were ready, I embellished them with a variety of elements. A mix of ephemera pieces, exclusive cut files and printables from the Clique store, and some stitching added that layered, unique look I love.

Here is the front:

Here is the back:

The alpha stickers I used were included in the June Aquarelle kit. The copper color coordinates perfectly with the Pool Party TN kit.

Some of the cut files were modified to fit the tag shape. Same idea was used for a couple of pictures, as well as the 3×4 cards that come in the kit. I just adhered them back to back, cut the top corners, and punched a hole to fit the other tags.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my process and will maybe use your Traveler’s Notebook kit to make a fun and colorful mini album.

Until next time. Have a lovely day!
