Hi Everyone. Lisa here. I’m so excited to be the Guest Designer for the month of July. I was completely over them moon when Clique Kits asked me. I have been a subscriber to the club for a few months now and love everything about it.
How about I tell you a little bit about me. I live in Alberta, Canada and I am a mom to 2 older children. I have been Scrapbooking since about 2007 but I didn’t start making process videos until 2008/09. I have made so many friends through YouTube and Facebook that are involved in this scrapbooking community and I feel so fortunate to be involved with these super creative and wonderful people.
The collection for the month of July is 365 from Chickaniddy. Oh my goodness, can I tell you, this kit is beautiful. Perfect for the bright summer months. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it so I could play and create.I did get the extra addons to play with. Look at those alphas. They just make me happy. I have a box opening you can watch HERE to see everything in the main kit as well as all the extras I got.
Whenever I get a kit, I always look at the collection and see if the paper tells me what to do with it. I know that sounds funny but sometimes you just see a piece of paper or an embellishment and it screams at you, “I would look amazing if you did this!!” I know it sounds crazy, but I have been told I am. So I just go with it. Lol I feel like the first page is always the hardest to make. You have this kit and looks beautiful and then you have to take your paper trimmer to it. I swear the first paper screams when you cut into it. But then once you get the first page over with it gets much easier. My first page was no different. I was so scared to ruin my first page. I call it the first pancake rule. You know how when you make pancakes, sometimes the first pancake doesn’t turn out. That’s usually what happens to me. But this time, my first pancake turned out amazing. I thinks it’s my favorite page so far.
