Wonderful Winter

study-hall

Hello & welcome back…Dani here today to share my December Daily pages 3 & 4 with you.  Today I wanted to feature the 2016 Clique Into The Holidays kit.  I literally squealed with joy when I first opened this kit!  It has got to be one of my all-time favorite kits EVER!! 🙂

letitsnow-fullkit

I cut a few tabs, labels & frames out with my Cuttlebug..yes I know its old school, but I still love using it!  Using your diecut machines & Silhouette with the coordinating papers really adds to the over-all cohesiveness of your project.

I just love all the exclusive cards that come in this kit..especially the adorable bunny rabbit with his scarf & snow cap.  Speaking of cards, I wanted to mention we have a few exclusive Holiday card kits left in the store, grab one today.

Here’s a few more close-ups of my spread using the 2016 Clique Into The Holidays kit:

To finish off my spread I decided to add a smaller pocket page in between the 2 pages.  I had these in my stash and they are designed by Simple Stories.  It was so FUN to pull out my Fuse tool & make a shaker pocket, using some of the Snow & Cocoa ephemera, wood veneers, pom poms & sequins that come in the kit.  I love how it came out & the different size pages really adds a unique touch I think, as well.

Are you doing a December Daily or special Christmas project/s this year?  We would love for you to share them with us on Facebook &/or Instagram.  We simply LOVE seeing what you do with our products & kits…your creativity always exceeds our expectations!!

If you would like to stop by my YouTube channel, I will have the process video up later today.  You can also check out Days 1 & 2 of my December Daily while you’re there. 🙂

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will stop by Clique Kits & check out these amazing products & MORE!!

Merry Christmas! XO~Danni

Holiday Gift Card Bags

Blog Image_Locker Room

Hello friends!  Candace here with you today to share a  fun holiday project using the Clique into December kit.  I adore this kit!  It is jam packed with so many breathtaking goodies from the Snow and Cocoa collection from Crate Paper.  This kit is now sold out in the shop but don’t worry you can take this same idea and use any paper and embellishments from your stash.

This quick holiday project is created to hold little gift cards with a personal touch.  I started by using a bag cut file from the Silhouette store and cut out the small bags from the adorable patterned paper.  With quick, easy directions I assembled the bags and then had fun embellishing!

On the first bag I layered a few tags and added the cute puffy reindeer.  For the second bag I layered a tag with a die cut snowflake from the ephemera pack and a wood veneer.

The third bag is may favorite!  On this bag I wanted to use the little puff balls that came in the kit.  I used multi media glue in matte and adhered the puffs to twine and tied the bag off with a cute tag.  For the last bag I layered a few snowflakes and another little ball for a simple and cute bag.

This was such a fun project to create and now all my gift cards will have a nice handcrafted bag to sit in!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a beautiful day!

Clique Holiday Album Cover & Tag

2016-dd-cover-and-tag-1

 

Hello my dears! Previously I have shown you the inside cover of my December Album as well as many of the inside pages, but today I will show you the outside cover of my album and a little tag I made with the Clique Into the Holidays Kit as well.

2016-dd-cover-and-tag-2

First up, I layered a few pieces of ephemera and one of the chipboard stickers together and punched a hole in each (some had holes already). I added a few stickers and wrapped them all together using seam binding. I desperately wanted to add those poof balls to this tag so I ended up sewing them together using gold thread and then wrapping the excess gold thread around the seam binding to add some extra gold in there. Aren’t those little poofs so cute??!

2016-dd-cover-and-tag-3

Now typically people don’t decorate the covers of Traveler’s Notebooks but I REALLY wanted to decorate mine haha. So I did! There aren’t really rules, am I right?

2016-dd-cover-and-tag-4

Now I actually created this cover a LONGGGG time ago and I can honestly say it’s been totally fine!! Nothing has fallen off, ripped, broken… it’s been stacked and in a shelf and opened and closed a ton of times and it’s good!! And I love it. 🙂  The Clique into the Holidays kit is now sold out but we have a lot of holiday add ons still in the shop and we also have the Clique Cards holiday edition you can pick up HERE!

Thank you all for stopping by! I can’t wait for December to start so I can work the magic on this little guy!! Yay!! Much love all!

More of My Clique December Album

Hey everyone! I’m back to show you a little more of my prepped pages for my December Traveler’s Notebook. In my last post I showed you the inside cover and the first 3 pages of my album. Today I’m going to give you sneaks of a few more of my pages.

2016-dd-page-4

Above is page 4! Again, my goal is to keep things simple for now and just give myself a bit of inspiration and somewhere to start so when December rolls along, I won’t feel overwhelmed. The “Oh Deer” chipboard is from one of the Add-Ons in the Clique Kits Store.

2016-dd-page-5

Page 5! I’m really having fun with the transparencies in the ephemera set. Normally I shy away from them because they baffle me for some reason haha, but I really can’t wait to add more of these once I have photos ready to go!

2016-dd-page-6

How incredible are the pattern papers from the Snow & Cocoa collection?! I am obsessed. And the colors aren’t traditional but they are SO DANG CUTE!!!! This is page 6 🙂

2016-dd-page-7

And finally page 7! Another transparency (the snowflake) that I topped the bear tag with and a small and simple sentiment builder at the bottom of the next page.

Using a Traveler’s Notebook this year has been such a blessing for me. The small pages and not feeling obligated to fill pockets (I am not a pocket scrapbooker so I am not used to it!) has really freed my mind when creating. I found this to be a great tip to others who look at me with boggle eyes when I show them some of my past DD. Do what works for you! And don’t stop until you find exactly what that is! Because there is so much fun to be had and memories to be beautifully documented if you can only find what works for YOU. 🙂

Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful week my friends!

Yearbook: Double Pocket Page Layout

blog-image_yearbook

Hello Clique Friends!! Leigh here, to share a Pocket Page Layout from my main album! Love these exclusive cards from the Clique Into December Kit!!  All the cards below, except the white 3×4 cards, are from this kit!

Lodynski_Dec2015_ProjectLife

These cards were so easy to work with! They coordinate perfectly with the Pinkfresh Studio embellishments from this kit. So I just added my photos and printed some journaling on the title card for a super quick layout!

LOdynski_Dec15_ProjectLifeSneak2

I have a little video tutorial for you, showing you how to create the pocket page window card above. I got the idea because I wanted to highlight the acrylic embellishments in this kit.

LOdynski_Dec15_ProjectLifeSneakFor this quick pocket card, you can add a die cut and stitch on one of the die cut phrases included in the Pinkfresh Studio Card Stock Die Cut pack.

Super clean and simple!

 

Watch the short, three minute tutorial in the above You-tube video!

 

Thank you for joining us today!

Let’s go!

lockerroom

Hello everybody! Nicole here. This year, I’ve decided to switch things up a bit and give Project Life another go. I tried last spring and failed miserably. I’ve decided to stick with a 6″x8″ sized album to keep it simple. After completing my first double page spread, I’m thinking I need to go a little bigger, but time will tell.

If you haven’t seen the March kit yet, you’re in for a treat. There are lots of fun embellishments in this kit. I especially love the tiny text word strips and the acrylic shapes. Fun stuff! Oh and a girl can never have too many transparencies. I went to town with my embellishments for my first project life spread of the year. I thought they were perfect for the layout I had in mind.

I love the “Believe in yourself” word strip. It went perfectly for the theme of my project life spread. The acrylic numbers and transparency alphas really helps make a statement. Wouldn’t you agree.

I decided to punch a star shape from patterned paper and added it to my transparency frame. Love the look!

If you haven’t given project life a try, why not challenge yourself this year to give it a try. I am determined to stick with it this year! Thanks for stopping by today!

Click Into The Holidays: My December Journal

Happy Holidays! It’s Tyra here and I’m delighted to share a peek inside my journal featuring the oh so perfect  Clique into the Holidays Kit.  I am happy to report that my journal making this year has been a success. What made the difference for me this year?

  • A new smartphone (and ample space to take pictures)
  • A wireless compact photo printer (e.g. Canon Selphy), which allowed me to print directly from my phone
  • Last but not least, the super affordable Clique Kits Holiday Kit, including the well coordinated papers and embellishments, along with an ample supply of pocket style journal cards!

So, let’s get to the journal!

I used a 6 x 8 binder:

Tyra Babington Clique Kits December Journal Feature

 

I created a few journal cards of my own, but kept it simple.   Knowing that I’m using a pocket style journal, I precut a lot of paper to a 3 x 4 or 6 x 8 size and used my tiny stapler to make everything come together. The holidays are super busy, so this journal needed to be quick and easy or it wasn’t going to happen at all.

Tyra Babington Journal Cards

Here are a few of my journal pages! Literally everything came together fast as I simply remembered to snap a photo everyday during the month of December. I also added my children’s school projects, church and event programs, weather forecasts, and receipts for special purchases.

Tyra Babington December Journal 3 Tyra Babington December Journal 2 Tyra Babington December Journal 1

I’m soo happy with the progress I’ve made.  I’m soo happy I was able to capture December my way.  Just remember the next time you decide to assemble a journal, it’s really about the memories.  Keep the journaling part easy. Clique Kits help make that process so much easier.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!  Take care, Tyra.

Yearbook – Holiday memories

yearbook2

 

Hi everyone, Danielle here with you today! With Christmas around the corner, it is the most busy time of the year. I wanted to be ahead of things and already fixed a quick and easy mini album, so when Christmas is over I just need to add my pics. I used my Clique into the Holidays kit for this album.

You probably noticed the glassine bags in each kit, that hold the embellishments. I’ve been keeping some of the big ones and used them to make my mini album. You start folding them in half. Then you make holes on the folded line for the binding. With twine you bind your album like shown in the last picture.

Holiday memories mini album, @Danielle de Konink, @Cliquekits, #cliquekits #scrapbooking #DIY #CliqueintotheHolidays

I used the bigger Kaisercraft journaling cards for the front cover and every other page of the album. You need to crop them a little and round the corners again to make them fit. I used gold embossing powder with a variety of stamps throughout the album. All other pages where the photos will be placed, are embellished with a variety of papers and embellishments from the Clique into the Holidays kit.

Because the pages of the album are not very big, I will use instax pictures for this album. When the pictures are added, I will embellish the pages a little more where needed.

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you all a wonderful Christmas!

Oh happy, happy first day of December!!  For many of us, holiday traditions are in full swing beginning today; Elf on the Shelf, 12 Days of Christmas, Advent, an annual Christmas tree hunt or just a good ‘ol fashion countdown to Christmas with your family!!  This season also brings us what has come to be known as the December Daily, which always seemed daunting and overwhelming to me.  It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong.  I just cannot see myself documenting something for everyday.  So instead, Clique Kits has created their kit this year, Clique into the Holidays!!  This kit is truly, December your way and I love it!!  Here are some pages from my Clique into the Holidays mini album where I’ll be adding photos of us trimming the tree, baking cookies, pulling goodies out of our Advent Calendar, reading Christmas stories and more!  Here are a few close ups of the kit itself.

And here are some of my Clique into the Holidays album pages!  One thing I love to do in my mini albums is to vary my pages sizes and shapes to add lots of visual interest and texture.  Doing this really makes a mini album interesting, interactive and chunky!  The chunkier the better when it comes to mini albums, I say.
