Field Notes – My Personal Journal

CK- Field Notes -traveler notes - header

Hello Clique Friends!

Nathalie here bringing you a few entries of my personal journal created using the beautiful ( it is truly a gorgeous!)  Aquarelle main kit.  This month’s kit features  Cocoa Vanilla’s “Wild at Heart” collection which is full of florals, watercolor motives, and lots of beautiful designs.  If you haven’t checked the Aquarelle kit, yet, then you better run to the Clique Store to pick the few available for sale.

Did you know that there is a large library of cut files and printables available for purchase at the Clique Store?  I happen to visit the store, and combined the  printables from the September 2015 kit with the the Aquarelle kit to create a spread about this year’s NSD. Here is  a small video on how the page came together:

 

 

The picture (of the day) was enlarged to fit into one of the pages of the TN (4.25×8.25 in).  After gluing it to the page, I added a few pieces (Pinksfresh Studio Alphas, and CK printables)  of the Aquarelle kit to the picture.

Since the picture has plenty of white space at the bottom, it was the perfect spot to add a few lines about the day’s experience.

To balance the page, the large sentiment card in the September 2015 exclusive printables was machine sewn to a piece of white copy paper -cut to the TN’s page size- .

One of the  small tabs was then glued to the card to complete the page, and stamp the date.  Here is the final spread:

The next entry in my personal journal uses the Double Dot paper included in the Aquarelle kit, along with some of the exclusive printables, and Pinkfresh Studio’s Nico stamp ( unfortunately, this stamp has sold out in the  Clique store).   Here is a detailed video on how the spread came together:

 

 

This spread was so easy to create.  First, I found the center point of the TN page, and used it to cut a large triangle (that will cover the other page of the TN) out of the patterned paper.

The title for this spread was created on the paper covered page using a combination of  stamps (Pinkfresh Studio’s Nico alpha, and Simple Stories Faith roller stamp), and the Pinkfresh Studio alphas included in the kit.

A few simple exclusive printables was all that was needed to complete this page, and balance the large triangle on the spread.  After a few lines of journal, and a  few more sentiments added with the roller stamp in  Faded Jeans ink -Distress Oxides- , the page was completed.   Here is the final spread:

Both pages were created in a really small amount of time (between 10-15 minutes), and I love the different looks, I was able to achieve with the Aquarelle kit, and the CK printables.  

Remember to visit the Clique Store to check all the exclusive printables, cut files, and most materials used in this pages.  You can use the DT codes to receive a discount at checkout.  As always, I am a comment away if you have any questions on how this came together.

 

Thanks for stopping by today!
