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.

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰ 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:

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!

Field Notes – Punches and Mixed Media

CK- Field Notes -traveler notes - headerHello, Clique fans! Enza here today to share a new Traveler’s Notebook spread. Look at all the fabulous goodies in the July Pool Party Travelers Notebook kit!

ck-jun17-tnkit2_4_orig

I went back to my good ol’ punches again. This is a floral border one from Martha Stewart that I have had in my stash for quite a while. The idea was to create a colorful background using different patterned paper from the Ain’t Life Grand collection featured in the kit.

On the opposite side of the page, I used a mixed media paper from Kaisercraft that came in the May Sorbet kit. After cutting it to fit, I simply colored it with a mini ink blending tool and shades of ink that matched the colors in the papers. One of the sentiments from the collection served as my title, which was placed in the center of the page and backed with some thread for added texture.

I layered the photo with a mix of patterned papers. The journaling, as well as some sentiments, were typed and then cut into strips.

Clique Agenda – My week

Hello, everyone! Enza here and today I’m sharing a planner spread using the gorgeous June Aquarelle kit.
ck-jun17-mainkit-6_1_orig
I love the exclusive printables every month, and the ones included in the June kits are no exception. Fun and colorful, I had to use them in my spread.
egudor_June26_CliqueAgenda
One of the things I always do when it comes to digital items is print multiple copies of my favorites in different sizes. Photoshop is a fantastic tools for this, but I find the Silhouette Studio software much easier to use. I just drag (or copy/paste) the images into a new workspace, duplicate them and modify the size as I like before printing. Easy peasy.
I started by placing the flowers across my spread and creating clusters here and there. I also printed the days of the week strip that comes as a printable with the Traveler’s Notebook kit. I love the font!

Next, the butterflies, which were fussy cut out of a 3×4 exclusive card included in the main kit.

The triangles I added on the sides of both pages give the perfect touch of color. They are also from a 3×4 exclusive card. I adore this cute little tag!

Geek Lab – Favorite

Hello, everyone. Enza here to share a fun layout featuring the awesome May Sorbet kit.
-kit-1_1_orig
Paper punches are a great tool when it comes to give your pages a more unique look. I love using them, but rarely do anymore, as my die-cutting machine does all the work for me πŸ˜‰ It felt like a nice change to take out my big box of punches and think of different ways to use them.
egudor_May13_GeekLab
For my layout today, I picked three circular punches in different sizes (one of them has scalloped edges), and cut out several circles from a variety of patterned papers.
egudor_May13_GeekLab_CloseUp5
egudor_May13_GeekLab_CloseUp6

I then folded them in half, but didn’t glue them together. The idea was to create dimensional petals.Β  I used the colorful buttons in the Pink Fresh Studio Dream On collection for the inside of the flowers and tucked all the folded circles underneath them.
egudor_May13_GeekLab_CloseUp1
The smaller picture fit perfectly in between the flowers. A few layers of patterned papers and ephemera pieces were used to give the photo a more finished look.

egudor_May13_GeekLab_CloseUp2

For my title, I used the β€œFavorite” die cut included in the May Sorbet Kit. Simple and easy, but still bold enough to create some contrast with the rest of the colors.
egudor_May13_GeekLab_CloseUp3
I finished the layout with a couple of fun and colorful strips of washi tape at the bottom of the page and puffy stickers scattered all over the page.

Yearbook – Out Of This World

13708352_10206587466700644_3123589168410663782_o

Hello, Clique friends! I’m back today with a layout featuring the gorgeous May Sorbet Kit. The colors in this kit are absolutely amazing and the exclusives coordinate beautifully with it.

CK Sorbet Kit

The main inspiration for this layout came from one of the background cut files that will be available in the Clique digital store.ck-may17-storecuts-web3_origI initially intended to use the cut file as it is, but then decided to scatter the different size stars around my pictures and layer them to crate a lot of dimension and texture.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_Out Of This World2

Since the patterned paper I chose as my background is very similar in color to the one I used for the stars, I decided to just use pink acrylic paint to create some contrast. I still wanted my layout to have a soft look, so the light colored paint worked perfectly for it.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_CloseUp3

Some of the stars are cut out of vellum. I love the different texture it adds.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_CloseUp1

Once all the stars were positioned as I liked them around my pictures, I started embellishing. I tend to go for a tone-on-tone look most of the times to make the colors stand out more.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_CloseUp4

For my title, I used another exclusive cut file that will be available with the May Sorbet kit.ck-may17-storecuts-web5_origThe Pink Fresh Studio Reverie paper with its gorgeous blue adds the right pop of color the layout needed.

Field Notes – Colorful and fun

field-notes

Hello Clique friends. I’m back today to share a couple of spreads in my traveler’s notebook. The super fun March Play kit was perfect to give my pages lots of color and a happy vibe.

march-kit

For my first spread, I decided to use a couple of pictures of my daughter playing in the snow.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_Spread1

I always start by covering the pages with cardstock, as it makes them thicker and more difficult to tear. I picked white for the left side and patterned paper from the Little by little collection for the right side. I then fussy cut two of the wreaths out of the Clever Little Fox paper to use them as a base for my photos.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_CloseUp2For the opposite side, I went for a tone-on-tone look. Ephemera pieces and stickers match the colors in the background. To bring the spread together I used a branding strip across the bottom of both pages.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_CloseUp1

My second spread took a little bit more time as I decided to add some stitching to it.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_Spread2

One of the patterned papers in the kit has several words in different colors that I absolutely love. I picked the ‘heart’ one, as the color matched my daughter’s shirt in the picture. I glued the letters onto the polka dot patterned paper and stitched around them using the same color thread. The texture it adds is what I was going for. I completed the page with some ephemera pieces.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_CloseUp3

For the right side of the spread, I went for a simple look and only used a few embellishments that matched the colors on the opposite side.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_CloseUp4

I hope you felt inspired today to use the beautiful March Play kit in your traveler’s notebook. The Clique store has a lot of supplies to make your spreads come together quickly and beautifully. I can’t say enough how amazing the kits are each month. They are very versatile and can be used for a variety of projects.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
