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.

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!

Clique Agenda: June 2017 Monthly Spread

Hello, CK friends!

Donna here sharing my last post for this month of June using the Aquarelle kit.

ck-jun17-mainkit-6_1_orig

as well as some of the exclusive printables in the kit

ck-jun17-cliqueprints-web3_3_orig

First, let me show you one of the tricks I learned along the way. I’m sure I am did not come up with this original idea but I will share it anyway. I use a template as you see in the image, to cut the tiny little squares in my monthly spread.

It’s not really perfect but the difference is not that noticeable, so it’ll do. First, I measured one of the squares and used this tag (it’s quite sturdy so it can be used over and over again) as a template.

Use a pencil (so you can erase afterward) and trace around the area you want to cut. I keep this template nearby so it’s ready when I need it.

Here is how I decorated my monthly spread for June using the kit. (Note: stamp used from my stash and not included in the kit).

Clique Agenda: Hello June

Hello!

It’s Donna here for my first project this month using the June 2017 kit, “Aquarelle”.

18518139_669756356542536_377928656810574045_o

Today, I’m gonna be sharing a spread in my A5 planner. I use this planner mostly for DT/CT stuff and a little bit of memory keeping. I like to use the small cards to write my daughter’s daily shenanigans.

DONNAESPIRITU-AQUARELLE-PLANNER01_1

I usually keep everything pretty simple so I have plenty of space for writing down stuff. I like that this month’s printables has a mini-calendar as well as cute flowers and circle elements.

DONNAESPIRITU-AQUARELLE-PLANNER01e

 

I used the vellum paper in the kit to decorate the bottom part of the pages like I usually do with washi tape. I fussy cut the butterflies from one of the papers and lined them up as seen in the image.

Here is an after-the-pen photo… after I ruined it with my handwriting… ha!

DONNAESPIRITU-AQUARELLE-PLANNER01D

The Hello weekend tag is a last minute addition. This is also included in this month’s printables.

I just love this month’s kit and I can’t wait to show you more projects in the coming days. There’s a few more Aquarelle kit available in the Clique store so hurry up before it disappears!

That’s all from me today!
Happy crafting,

Clique Agenda: September Planner Page

Happy Monday scrappers! I’ve just spend the past hour searching through my purse for my notes and  reminder cards for upcoming dental appointments for the month of September. If I don’t write them down, I will forget. My memory isn’t as good as it used to be. LOL

This month, after I finished creating the layouts I wanted to make using the June Kit, I decided to use the leftover scraps and die cuts to embellish my planner page for September.

I used adhesive to adhere two cards back-to-back from Clique Kit’s exclusives to add to my planner page. The “You Don’t Have To Be Perfect To Be Amazing” sentiment inspires me! Love it. I used gluedots to adhere the “She Belongs With Wildflowers” sentiment to the other card with the words. A girl can never have too many inspiring quotes in their planners to get them through their days.


Each month, not only do I write down dental and doctor appointments, but I also include things such as water plants, laundry, clean the kitchen etc. to keep me on track.

If you’re looking for a few fillers for your planners, check out the Clique Kits Shop, we have a variety of embellishments to help you get your plans started!

Thanks for visiting today,

Clique Agenda – Happy May

clique-agenda

Hello Everyone! Here is Réka and I’m so excited because it’s my first post as a member of CK Design Team. Today I ’m sharing with you how I orgazine my months in my homemade planner. The basis of my planner is a simple ring album which I’ve covered with fabric and I’ve decorated the front page with a lot of elements from the April Kit. Have a look at it.

1.kép

I’ve decorated the inside of my planner with the gorgeous May Main Kit.

ck-may17-kit-1_1_orig

 

The left side of the inside page is covered with one piece of paper from Pinkfresh Studio. Afterwards I’ve made a few pocket from fabric on which I’ll put the different elements of the kit. I’ve added puffy stickers and buttons. The paper clips from Freckled Fawn are perfect to use in the planner.

My monthly page always contains one inspiring sentence. For the May I’ve chosen one spot varnish sentimets card from Kaisercraft, which firstly I’ve painted and after I’ve used my inks. It was so interesting where the paint and ink met on the card. I’ve put this card on the vellum tape wrapping paper, and finally I’ve added them on the white cardstock. I’ve sewed around every piece with my sewing machine. For the title I’ve used the alphabet stamps set from Latina Crafter who is the sponsor of this month’s challenge. You can find more information about the monthly challenge here. You also can see this stamps set on my next pages. This page is complete with the happy puffy sticker.

2

Now let’s see the back side of the previous page. I’ve chosen one illustration from the May Kit exclusive printable which designed by Maryam. I’ve printed it on the vellum paper. This idea comes from Gia. When my printed vellum paper was done I’ve just started to put a card on it when my eyes have stopped on the „Neverland is my home” sentence from the Pinkfresh Studio – Reverie paper. Unfortunately it was too small, but I’ve written the same sentence with my stamp, cutting and I’ve glued them to the paper. When I’ve attached them I’ve covered it with overhead folien, but I’ve sewed only its three sides and the left side was let open so I’ve got one pocket for the bills, cards and other things which belong to the month.

3

Every montly important data, events, goals and dreams go to the other page. I’ve used one sheet water-colored paper on which I’ve sewed and painted the columns and I’ve written the titles of the columns with my handwritting and added some puffy stickers.

4

The next double pages show my montly spread for May. These pages were edited in the Microsoft Word and then printed. I’ve added a few vellum tape and die cuts. Now, the only thing to do is to organise our schedule of May, plans, meetings, tasks.

5

Next time I will show you how I organize my week and I will also share other parts of my planner with you. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful crafty day! See you soon!

Clique Agenda: April planner spread

Hi! Donna here for the third time in a row this week and I hope you’re not yet tired of me. For today, I am sharing how I setup my first two weeks of April using the Jellybean kit. I used my A5 Prima planner which is my planner for all my design team stuff.

DonnaEspiritu-CliqueKits-April-Jellybean-Planner01e

I started by coloring the alpha stickers with watercolor. This is pretty fun to do, just color the letters you want to use so it’s not that messy. Let it dry first before unsticking the alpha stickers so it won’t tear.

DonnaEspiritu-CliqueKits-April-Jellybean-Planneralpha

Then I cut a strip of patterned paper and adhered to the inner edges of the insert where you cut the holes. I also used watercolor to add some colors to one of the doilies I used in my spread.

DonnaEspiritu-CliqueKits-April-Jellybean-Planner01c

 

I turned one of the flairs into paper clip as well as one of the flowers in the pack

I also made use of the journal cards as you here in the image below.

DonnaEspiritu-CliqueKits-April-Jellybean-Planner01b

Notice the stamped words? Since I don’t have a nice pink ink available, I used watercolor instead. (The little one decided she likes to turn the poor stamp into teeny tiny pieces.. RIP to my one and only pink ink lol!). Just a bit of water, almost dry brushing watercolor onto the word in the stamp (like coffee and love) and gently stamp on to the surface. The stamps I used were by Latina Crafter.
