Hello everyone!  Erica here to bring you some fabulous cards from a couple of our favorite card makers!  These two ladies were hand picked by Clique Kits Co Founders because for one they are amazing designers and for two they are past Memory Works ladies just like us!  Katie Skiff & Kelly Holbrook are amazing and when we released our Spring card kit we knew we had to get one of the kits to each of them!  Since April is our anniversary month and we all about going back to our “Orgins” we wanted to bring in some past Memory Works girls to spotlight!  First up we have Katie Skiff!  Katie is talented card maker and you can find her on YouTube here!

Hi there, I’m Katie Skiff and I’m excited to be joining you on the Clique Blog today!  Thank to you the fun ladies here for the chance to play around with their new Spring Card Kit!  I was so excited when I saw all the GOLD!!
I pulled everything out, and the first thing to catch my eye was the cute lil Flair that said You Did It!  I thought that would make for a perfect addition to a Graduation Card.  As I dug deeper, I came across the Gold numbers in the die cut pack, and I wanted to use the envelope/bag on the card to slip in a gift card or some money for the graduate.
It all came together nicely after that.  I added the bag to the front of the aqua cardstock, and added another die cut piece before I tied on the ribbon.  I popped up the gold numbers and added the flair.  This really was very simple, but with all the colors and pops of gold it really stands out!
I do have a special graduate in mind for this cute card!

Thanks again for the opportunity to play and I look forward to sharing more with you this month!

One of my favorite things to do is to cut notches for little details to poke out. Here, I used a tab which serves a dual purpose, because it also accents my sentiment on the inside of the card.

I knew that I wanted to include the big flower die cut on the front of my card in a unique way. So, I decided to make the inside of the card part of the design. I included a tag, so there would still be a clear spot to sign it.

So much inspiration from these two ladies!  I love how they used the Spring Card kit and now want to dig into mine!  To grab a kit of your own please head on over to the Clique Kits shop and check them out HERE!  Thanks so much Kelly and Katie for sharing with us today!
