Designer in the Spotlight-Ashley Horton

Hello Clique Fans!  Erica here with you today to bring you our Designer in the Spotlight!  Our September Travelers Notebook kit features the Wish You Were Here collection designed by the super talented Ashley Horton!

We are so excited to have Ashley as our Designer in the Spotlight!  You can find Ashley’s collections at Pretty Little Studio and also her fabulous cut files and digital products at The Cut Shoppe!  You can check out Ashley’s blog HERE for a ton of inspiration!

 

 

We want to thank Ashley for taking the time out of her busy day to share a little bit about herself with us!  So grab your drink of choice, curl up in your favorite place and say HELLO to the fabulous Ashley Horton!

What are 3 of your must have tools?

Silhouette Cameo, sewing machine and tape runner

Who are some of your favorite designers?

Paige Evans, Flora Farkas and Zsoka Marko

What inspired you to design the Wish You Were Here collection?

I wanted to do a travel collection, that include a lot of bright colors and different travel icons. And my biggest inspiration came from the super-cute llama that’s a part of the collection!

Favorite movie – The King & I

Favorite color- Yellow

Favorite book- Anne of Green Gables

Favorite food- Fish/Shrimp Tacos

What are your trend predictions for 2018? Do you think we will still see pineapples and flamingos?

It’s always hard to predict what will show up in the paper crafting world, but I think it would be fun to see some collections that reflect the farmhouse look that is so popular in home decor right now. And I wouldn’t mind, if the pineapples and flamingos stick around, because let’s face it, they are always fun to use!

Thanks for connecting with our readers Ashley!  Shrimp tacos are some of my favorite too! Yum!!  Ashley has also created a fun cut file to share with our readers and a couple spreads in her Travelers Notebook using her Wish You Were Here collection!   This file is perfect to use in your travelers notebook or scrapbook layouts and you can download it HERE for free!

Love that llama die cut and how the cut file is the perfect size for the travelers notebook!!  We would love to see how you use this free cut file so make sure to tag Clique Kits and The Cut Shoppe in your projects!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Make sure to follow the Clique Kits blog and Ashley Horton for more inspiration using the September Sundance Travelers Notebook kit and the Wish You Were Here collection!  Enjoy the rest of your day!

Geek Lab – Free Cut File Fun

Hello Clique Fans!  Erica here with you today to share a layout using some of the July Travelers Notebook kit and a free cut file we offered back in May!  This kit features the Ain’t Life Grand collection from Pretty Little Studio designed by Ashley Horton.  I also printed out the exclusive Travelers Notebook printables sheet that comes free for subscribers!

This cut file was designed by Maryam Perez for our May Challenge and I just love it!  You can grab it for free HERE.  You can also check out our Facebook group The Clique for even more free cut files!  I started out by picking a few papers from the kit and cutting them down to back the cutfile.

I used my Tombow Aqua adhesive to add the cut up papers to my cutfile!  I did not back all of the open spots because I wanted to leave some white spaces!  I love how it turned out!

The photo I am using is of my two youngest boys swimming in their pool!  They love to be in the water and always have so much fun!

Once I backed my photo with a couple layers I added it to my layout and began embellishing my layout!  I used products from the kit and also so Ain’t Life Grand products that I picked up in the Pretty Little Studio shop!  Clique Kits loves to support women in business and small business and PLS is one of our favorites!  Here is a look at my completed layout using the July Travelers Notebook Kit!

Clique Kits has a handful of freebies in the digital shop as well that you should check out!  Using cutfiles for your layouts or cards is a fun way to use up smaller papers and add lots of patterns!  Remember if you use CK files in your projects to tag us on Facebook or Instagram!  We love to see what everyone is creating!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Field Notes – Snapchat Fun

Hey everyone!  Erica here with you today to bring you another spread in my June Travelers Notebook!  Today I am using up some of my March 2017 Clique Kit that featured the Shimelle Little by Little collection!  You can grab this kit in the shop HERE!  Remember you can use the code SHOP to get 30% off your total purchase!

I started out by trimming one of the papers in the kit!  It has tiny black hearts all over and I just love it to pieces!

I only ended up using one piece of paper and leaving the left side white and adding a boarder strip from the 6×12 sticker sheet.

The sticker sheet is no longer available in the shop but you can pick up these super cute enamel shapes and we also have the Shimelle wood buttons that are perfect for all projects!

The two photos I am using both have Snapchat filters on them and my youngest boy just loves to play around with these filters!  He loves the ones that have voice changers!

I added a just a couple layers behind my photos and then glued them down to my notebook and began some simple embellishing!  I just love how quick and easy it is to document using the Travelers Notebook!  Plus it is a good way to use up left over pieces from your kits!

I used a couple stickers from this Shimelle sticker book to add to my spread!  I love these little sticker books!  They are such a great value!  So many fun stickers and 2 alpha sticker sheets!

For the left side I decided to add my jounaling using my WRMK Typeset Typewriter!  I typed it out on some vellum instead of white paper!  I saw Audrey do this in on of our process videos and I really love how it looks on vellum!  You can check out her video HERE!

Once I had my journaling typed out I cut them into strips and ran them through my Xyron sticker maker!  One of my favorite things on my desk!  I added them to my notebook on the left hand side of my spread and added a typewriter sticker from the sticker book!

Here is a look at my completed spread using the March 2017 Clique Kit!  I love how simple and sweet it turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  Don’t forget we still have our 30% off sale going on right now!  Perfect time to stock up on some goodies!  We also have a Sale section in the shop that is already marked done so double savings if you use the coupon code!  Have a great rest of your day!

Field Notes – Summer Fun

Hello Clique Fans!  Erica here with you today to share a spread in my Travelers Notebook!  I just love this way of documenting and I am seeing it pop up more and more!  Did you know that Clique Kits now has a Travelers Notebook kit that compliments our Main Kit so nice!  You can read more on subscribing HERE!

Today I will be using a past Travelers Notebook kit that featured Crate Paper Oasis collection!  Perfect for summer documenting!

Now this kit is sold out but we do have bits and pieces of this kit and collection in the Clique Kits shop!  The products I used that you can pick up are the exclusive journal cards, ephemera and the Maggie Holmes sticker sheet!

I am also am using one of the CK exclusive TN inserts from the July kit!  You can grab one HERE in the shop!

I started out by adding a few pieces of pattern paper to my spread!  Each TN kit comes with beautiful pattern papers!  The photos I am using our from our day trip to the lake to swim!  It was so hot out and the water felt so good!  The kids had a blast and it was the first time they used their Pegasus float!  The float is massive but they had a lot of fun on it!

I added one of the exclusive journal cards to the right side of my spread and used my WRMK Typeset Typewriter to add some photo details!  I also added one of the label stickers from the Maggie Holmes sticker sheet and one of the Oasis puffy stickers!  You can grab these super cute puffies in the CK shop HERE!

The left side I added a couple more photos and added some journaling strips I made using the WRMK Typewriter!  I love using this to add my journaling!

I also added an ephemera piece from the exclusive ephemera pack, a puffy sticker from the Oasis collection and kept the layers behind my photo simple!  Using the Travelers Notebooks is a quick and easy way to document your memories!  I find I have less products and using more of them which makes me and my desk very happy!  Here is a look at my completed spread!

Stay tuned for my TN spreads from me as I finish up my June album!  If you have not yet tried using a travelers notebook I highly recommend it!  They are so handy and perfect for on the go documenting!!  You can check out all our Travelers Notebook goods in the CK Shop HERE!   If you are currently using one I would love to see your spreads!!  Tag us on Facebook or Instagram!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have a great weekend!!
