Field Notes: First Day

Hello, friends! I am here to share with you my last project as a design team member for Clique Kits. I have had a blast this past year. I have loved being on the Design Team and working with such amazing people. Thank you everyone for giving me this opportunity.

My traveler’s notebook spread today is all about my son’s first day of school. I can’t stop saying how much I love the colors in the September Sundance kit!

I wanted to use lots of different patterns and colors, so I decided to use a star craft die to obtain multiple shapes in different sizes. I then placed them in a diagonal across the two pages, making sure to overlap them and create some texture and dimension.

The Freckled Fawn Puffy Alpha Stickers are the perfect addition to any project. I love their size and how they complement the design without being overwhelming.

I finished the spread with some sentiments from the 1Canoe2 sticker sheets and Fancy Pants Designs Puffy stickers.

Field Notes-My Lovely Life

ck-field-notes-traveler-notes-header

Hello again!  Candace back with you today to share my last layout at a design team member for Clique Kits.  I have seriously loved every minute being a part of this amazing team and company ran by some pretty kick butt ladies.  A big huge heart felt thank you to Erica, Gia, Lacey and Nicole!  The last two years have been nothing short of wonderful.  I have learned so much from these ladies and grown not only as a designer but as a person.  Thank you to Gia for always being a cheerleader and making me feel special!  Thank you to Lacey for working so hard on all the digital and other goodies and even letting me help out a few times!  Thank you to Nicole for keeping the team and me moving, creating and motivated.  Thank you to Erica for…well…everything!  Erica is not only the sweetest person to work for, but super talented, has taught me SO much and given me opportunities that have pushed me to learn and grow.  Thank you a million times over for two amazing years!  I hope to work with you ladies again soon!

Now for my final spread…

I love the long road paper in the kit this month and knew that I had to use it on one of my projects. I centered the road on the left side of my traveler’s notebook to act as a full page photo or focal point.

I adhered the title to the top of the paper in a vertical line to keep the design elements moving in the same direction as the photo.

On the left side of the spread I adhered a cute photo of my boys that almost fit the width of the paper.  I wanted to again keep all the design elements vertical.  To help with this, I added an enamel arrow pointing down towards the photo.  This keeps the eye moving vertically down the spread.

Lastly, I took one of the die cut pieces from the kit and ran it through my typewriter. After adding just a bit of journaling I adhered it under the photo.  I used colors similar to the left side to tie the two sides together.

I love the words and the photos in this little spread and I know that it will be one of those spreads that I will look at often.  Such cute boys!

Thanks for stopping by today!  You can check out the goodies I used for this layout in the shop here.  Have a beautiful day!

Field Notes: A first look at my September TN

ck-field-notes-traveler-notes-header

Hello Clique fans! It’s Enza, and today I’m here to share a couple of spreads in my Travelers Notebook featuring the gorgeous Sundance Main Kit.
CK_Sep17_MainKit-24
Fall season is upon us and this kit is perfect to document it. Since the month has just started, the first thing I want to share is how I embellished the opening pages of my insert.
egudor_September3_FieldNotes
The patterned paper on the left-hand side is part of my cover. I made my own inserts a while ago and this just happened to match the colors in the kit perfectly. I used one of the exclusive Fall words cut files for the month, which I cut out of white card stock and tinted with a mini ink blending tool and Distress Inks from my stash.
ck-sep17-kitcuts-web2_origI placed it vertically along the left side of the page and added the word “memories” from the Freckled Fawn Puffy Alpha Stickers below it. I kept the embellishments to a minimum, just a few 1Canoe2 ephemera pieces and enamel dots.
egudor_September3_FieldNotes_CloseUp5
For the right side, I mainly used the exclusive printables that come with the kit this month. They are so gorgeous! Love them all!
egudor_September3_FieldNotes_CloseUp3
egudor_September3_FieldNotes_CloseUp4
I also created my first spread for this month.
egudor_September3_FieldNotes2
I used some of the Fancy Pants Dream Big patterned papers to cover both pages and adhered two strips of a different color along the spine to create some separation. The cut file peeking out of the photo is one of the older Clique Cuts that can be found in the digital store.
egudor_September3_FieldNotes_CloseUp1
A few stickers, die cuts and the Fancy Pants Puffy Sticker sentiment finished one side of the spread, while my journaling, which I typed and cut into strips, completed the other side.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you felt inspired to use the Sundance Kit for your September memories.
Have a lovely day!

Field Notes: Summer Vibes

Hey, dear friends! So happy to be back with you today. For today’s project, I’m going to be using my traveler’s notebook + my main kit, but you can also use the Traveler’s Notebook kit of this month.

I created two-page spread project. On the left side, I put the photo, the journaling, and some really cute embellishments from the ephemera pack. I also added some sequins from the exclusive mix and a few holographic stars.

On the right side, I covered the page with the pattern paper N° 3 and on the bottom part, I added a label from the printables of this month + a holographic sun.

Here are a few close-ups:

I hope you liked this project, and don’t forget to follow us on social media to be the first in seeing the new stuff coming up to our shop. See you tomorrow.

Yearbook | MY SUMMER JOURNAL

Hello everyone!

I am back today with my final post using the beautiful and super colorful MALIBU TN kit.  If you haven’t checked the kit completely, then just click here -to be taken to the Clique Kits website-, and you could see the entire kit and add ons.

Malibu TN kit

I have kept a journal/diary since i was a small kid.  Through the years the format has changed, but I fell in love with TNs a few years back, and used them as my form of memory keeping/Project Life.   So I thought, I will share with you how i have incorporated the Malibu TN kit to some of my daily TN entries.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-3

We are babysitting my littles for the summer, so I had to snap a picture of the kids and my daughter as they enjoy some summer movie fun.   I converted it to b/w so that it can easily fit into the spread without clashing with the colors in the papers.  Next, I cut one of the papers from the Pink Paislee’s Summer Lights collection to about a 1/2in taller than the picture.  I cut the paper so that it could easily fit into the 2 pages of the spread, and then added my picture at the end of the paper.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-4

To balance the page, I cut some of the leftover pieces from the papers in the MALIBU kit (i am down to scraps of papers after all this projects!), and created banners. They all were attached to the top of the page, above the picture, in a cluster with a little piece of washi tape from my stash.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-2

The typed journal lines balanced the spread, and a few embellishments made from the  papers, stickers, and exclusive printables from this month’s Malibu kit complete this page.  So simple and quick to put together.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-5

Next,  i used this striped paper from the Summer Lights collection (featured in this month’s Malibu TN kit) as it reminded me of a beach towel.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-7

This time, I used the entire 6×6 paper sheet to cover the center of the 2 page TN spread. I cut the paper so that it fit on both pages, and glued a picture of the 2 girls to the top corner of the paper.  I added a small piece of another paper to mat the picture, and make sure it pops from the busy background. a few fussy cut images from the CK Exclusive printables, and the papers  along with the swim suit chipboard sticker is all that was needed to  frame the picture.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-8

I used my editing software to enlarge some of this month’s exclusive printables.   In this particular page, I chose to add my sentiment inside the hexagon.  I am loving the alphas from last month’s POOL PARTY kit.  The color matched this month’s kit also.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-6

Here is the final layout.   I love how easy it came together, and all the color in the page -even in the journal lines… the neon pens included in the kit will steal your heart, too!  I hope you all are ready to use the MALIBU KITS to document your summer adventures.  There are a few available at the Clique Store, so make sure you can get your hands on one of them… You will love it!

Remember to leave me a comment if you have questions on how this came together, or just to say hi!

Take care!

Hey friends! Stephanie Gold here and I have a fun travelers notebook layout for you today. First of all… I swear I say this every time but, have you seen the new travelers notebook kits yet?!! Because they are the. best. I adore them.

IMG_4688-imp

Everything in this kit makes me swoon. I sincerely adore the bright yellow alpha stickers and the ephemera and the insanely cool rubbery, see through stickers… I mean… it’s all just gorgeous.

IMG_4689-imp

So the picture I really wanted to document here was from a trip to Maine we took for a few weeks this summer. This is my hubby and I enjoying the summer time and each others company and we just had such a blast together on this trip (kids were there too just not in the pic ;).

IMG_4691-imp

I hope you enjoyed this layout and I can’t wait to see what you have been making with this kit!! Thank you all so much for stopping by!

Field Notes | My Travel Journal

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today to share with you a few of the entries of my journals created with this month’s MALIBU TN kit.   The colors of the papers from the Pink Paislee’s Summer Light collection are dreamy, and perfect to document all those vacation, and every day moments.

Malibu TN kit

As you all know, our family took a long vacation to Ecuador, which means there are plenty of memories to document.  Though i brought some supplies with me,  and actually managed to document a large number of our adventures, there were those days, that only got sketched in hopes to finish the page once i  got to all my supplies.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL

This is how one of the planned pages of my travel journal looked like  down in Ecuador.   As you can see I penciled all the story on the right of the page, and actually used the Imaginisce stamp (available at the Clique Store for $1!) to add some hot air balloons to the other page of the tn -most of this pictures were taken on the Gondola ride and up on the mountain at 4100m above sea level, so the air balloons fit the mood-.  Since there were so many pictures taken, i wanted to create a collage for this post, which meant that it will have to be finished on my return home.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-5

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-3

Upon receiving the MALIBU TN kit, i fell in love with one of the papers -since it had this soft blue stripes on it-, as it reminded me of the sky’s color.  First i stamped the image at few times on white paper, cut them, and set them apart for a bit.  Then using some watercolor, I created a blue background on top of the stamped images, and glued the newly created images on top  (this cover all the smudge color inside the air balloons).  Next I pulled some of the cloud chipboard stickers from the MALIBU main kit and attached them here and there.  The title was then created using the Pebbles alphas from the POOL PARTY kit.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-6

My idea to create the collage changed as the  paper was added to the other side of the TN. Instead, i opted to use LR to create picture strips which were glued to a piece of vellum cut to fit inside the TN.   I folded about 1/4 in on the long side of the vellum so that it could be glued to the tn.  A few CK exclusive printables were then added to the strips to bring some interest to the pictures.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-7

Since the papers in the MALIBU TN kit are 6x6in, and my TN’s length is of about 8.25in, i had to be crafty to complete the page – i cut some small strips, and added them in the middle of the page.  To hide the seam, the journal of this outing was then wrote on plain copy paper with one of the Prima Neon pens, included in this month’s TN kit,  and then trimmed, and attached to the center of the page.  I really like how easy it was to incorporate the MALIBU kit into my Travel Journal, but it was a pleasant surprise to see how versatile the kit is when documenting every day moments.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-8

I love how versatile all CK kits are, but i want to show you how easy it was to document the aftermath of  my vacation on my Personal Journal.  Since the house was a mess from unpacking all the bags, I opted to convert the picture to black and white.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-11

Next I matted the picture with a piece of one of the papers from the MALIBU TN kit, and glued it to the TN insert included in the kit.  I fussy cut some of the words, and images from the Pink Paislee papers, as well as the CK exclusives to create the cluster on this page.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-10

Though unpacking is never pleasant, i chose to add cheeriness to this memory by combining the tissue paper (that the kits come wrapped with) with this month’s printables, and alphas included in the kit.   The color combo matches that of the picture, and brings the spread all together.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_AUGUST2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-9

AS you can see this month’s MALIBU TN kit is not only gorgeous but versatile, too.   It can easily be used to scrap all those special summer/vacation memories, as well as those simple every day moments.  Remember there is still a few TN subscriptions available, so take some time to visit the Clique Kits website to check all the kits and exclusives.

I am a comment away if you have any questions on how these came together.
See you all soon!
