Hey everyone! I am on a gift packaging roll with this month’s Aquarelle kit and today’s post is all about gift tags!

I put together 3 very different tags made with multiple colors and textures for the ultimate eye candy.

I am semi obsessed with the little stitched clothing tags that came in the kit. They add so much interest to the design!!! I also have fun adhering items to my tags using just a small staple. This gives the piece the ability to move around and flow on its own a bit.

And then there’s that canvas star… SO FUN!!!

If you haven’t signed up for a monthly kit subscription yet, be sure to check out all the details here. These kits are such a blast to work with!!

Much love friends. Until next time.

Art Studio | Gift Packaging

art-studio

Hey friends – Stephanie Gold here with you today! I really fell in love with the June kit and I wanted to show you how versatile it really is. So for my Art Studio post today I put together 2 gifts using this month’s Main Kit, Aquarelle, to wrap them.

IMG_4265-imp

For the first package I used a medium white clothing box and wrapped it in the entire 12 x 12 piece of pink ombre pattern paper. I layered a large doily from my stash and the sweet lace die cut in the top left corner. I did a typical present wrap + using natural twine on the entire box and then tied a bow and added a bit of deep purple lace. The tag is made from the cutout library card, a floral frame, and a cutout (and cut up!) sentiment.

Isn’t it so beautiful all finished and wrapped?! And to think it just started as a simple white box.

My next gift started as a small brown kraft jewelry box that I made a wrap around the top using the deep blue floral pattern paper (this might be my favorite paper from this month’s kit!!). I used a smaller doily to add some country flair in the top left corner and did another, slightly different, twine wrap. I put together a mini tag using more of the ephemera and attached it to the gift using a mini clothespin. Ah, I’m obsessed.

Well that’s it for me today!!! Have you ever used your kit to wrap up some gifts?! Let me know if you give it a try!!

Field Notes | Cutfile Cards

field-notes

Hey everyone! I want to share some cards with you today that I actually made a bit ago using an incredible cut file that was free to download with the May Challenge – you can find it here.

IMG_4162-imp

So I actually downsized the cut file a bit so it would fit better on my cards and cut about 3 or 4 different pattern papers from it using the June Kit.

IMG_4163-imp

For this card I adhered the little triangles closely together onto a piece of cardstock and then trimmed it down and used it as it’s own layer when putting my card together.

IMG_4167-imp

And for this card I actually followed the exact format of the cut file and adhered each triangle directly onto my card base in specific places. I love how different both of the card designs ended up! 🙂

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic weekend! 😉

Yearbook | Be Who You Are

blog-image_yearbook

Hey friends! Stephanie Gold here with you today for a Travelers Notebook layout that’s all about you!!

IMG_4155-imp

So how often do you scrap about yourself?? My answer is never, unless I’m directly instructed to haha. I recently turned 30 and in my effort to combat any aging self-consciousness I decided to create a layout all about myself (in a positive way) using a photo I really liked. That last part can be hard but just find one you feel really beautiful in or one that has such a wonderful memory it gives you the warm fuzzies every time you see it. 🙂

IMG_4156-imp

The title of my post came from the quote,

Be who you are, not who the world wants you to be.

Have you seen the GORGEOUS alpha stickers in the new June kit?!!! I. Am. All. Over. Them. They are seriously the best. {Be sure to check out the kit info here!!}

I decided to chop up one of the journal cards which had positive affirmation words and phrases – and use the ones I resonated with to use as my journaling.

IMG_4160-imp

I kept the whole page simple and I love reflecting on it when I get myself into a funk. Being 30 is awesome and a blessing and I need to remember that!! 🙂 Also, don’t forget to check out the latest kit from Clique Kits, the official Travelers Notebook kit!!

Thanks for stopping by with me!! Much love everyone!

Delight | Stephanie

yearbook

Hey friends! Steph here with a fun Yearbook post for you. 🙂 I recently celebrated my 30th birthday and I really wanted to document a trio of silly photos I took with one of my best friends.

IMG_3898-imp

There were so many fun pattern papers in this month’s Jellybean kit that I really wanted to use a bunch of them. I decided to layer strips of some of my favorites and ruffle them a bit for extra texture.

IMG_3900

Since there was so much interest on my page with all of the patterns, I decided to keep my embellishments to a minimum. I journaled on the bottom of my page and created faux “stitches” with black pen marks throughout my page. My title was a simple die cut word from white cardstock that I adhered with staples.

IMG_3901

Such a happy turnout!! This girl is such a blessing and I love that I had the perfect papers to document this fun moment!! Thanks for stopping by! Happy creating!

I’ll Keep You Wild | Stephanie

art-studio

Hey friends! Stephanie Gold here again with an Art Studio post for you.

IMG_3831-imp

To create this layout I started by printing a black and white photo onto computer paper. The reason is so I could have a matte finish as well as be able to write my journaling directly onto the photo.

IMG_3825

I cut my title from Silhouette Studio and left the interior pieces in the “P” “O” and “D.” Then I used one of this month’s cut files from the CK shop to cut out the floral frame. I used scissors to cut it into four main parts so I could reattach it all in more of a rectangular shape.

IMG_3829

I accented my photo with vellum, washi tape, a doily (cut apart), and paint splatters. I really wanted a simple layout so I kept my color scheme at Pink, Black, and White. The quote I used for my photo is from Ariana and it says, “She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. She walked with the universe on her shoulders and made it look like a pair of wings.” I’m obsessed with it… it’s like my heart just erupted into words. 🙂

That’s it for me today! I will see you all again soon! Much love!

Break Rules | Stephanie

IMG_3847-imp

Hey loves! Stephanie Gold here with a Traveler’s Notebook layout made with this month’s Jellybean Kit that’s speaking to my soul right now. 😉

IMG_3848

So I was cracking up as I made this because my hidden journaling was basically all about YOLO… wait… don’t click exit! I swear there’s a point to this haha. Now I am NOT one to use that saying as it sounds ridiculous to me in all honesty however, I find I actually appreciate it’s sentiment in certain terms.

IMG_3850

I want to live my life to it’s fullest and not dull it down just to play it safe. I’m not saying we should all go out there and start base jumping and cliff diving (although if that’s your thing, go for it!), I just want to encourage all of you to get out of your comfort zones and do something you normally wouldn’t for the sake of being courageous, outgoing and adventurous in your goals!

IMG_3852

So go out there today and be a life warrior!! If I can support you, let me know how! Much love all!
