Clique Agenda: June 2017 Monthly Spread

Hello, CK friends!

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

as well as some of the exclusive printables in the kit

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”.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Clique Agenda – Planner Spread Using the Jellybean Kit!

clique-agenda

Hello planner lovers! This is Victoria and I am so excited to share my planner spread using the April 2017 Jellybean Kit. As you all know, CK kits are so versatile and there are a ton of goodies you can use in your kits to create gorgeous planner spreads.

CK_Apr17_Kit4

My spread is inspired by all things spring, which of course is my favorite season! I took advantage of the beautiful floral die cuts by creating layered clusters around my spread.

IMG_4302

To add a bit of sparkle, I used some gold glitter washi tape by Shimelle from American Crafts to accent the top and bottom of this spread. A little sparkle goes a long way!

IMG_4303

I am a sucker for die cut phrases and I happily used three of them to accent my spread and to inspire me as I work through my tasks this week. I also used a few of the floral stickers from the exclusive sticker set, available as an add-on in the CK store.

I’m now ready to add my action items and appointment reminders!

There are so many wonderful ways to accent your planner spreads using CK kits. Give it a try this week! Happy planning!

Clique Agenda – March spread

clique-agenda

Hello, everyone. Enza here with a planner spread featuring the new gorgeous March Play Kit. I love this kit to pieces. It is just beautiful. Such happy colors and fun patterns.

ck-march-kit

I was so inspired by all the goodies in this month’s kit that I decided to make my own dashboard for March.

I knew I wanted to use the Lil’ Bit Lovely patterned paper. I thought the chevron pattern would be cute to create a little pocket. As my base, I used a piece of white cardstock, which I trimmed to fit my Mini Happy Planner (it measures approximately 4.75” x 7”). I then did the same thing with the patterned paper. Since I wanted to cut the chevron paper in half, I first punched holes in it. That gave me an idea of where to cut.

egudor_february24_planner_closeup1

I used some foam dots to give dimension to the beautiful floral piece included in the ephemera pack, and added one of Dr. Seuss’s quotes that I have always loved as my inspiration for the month. I had a hard time choosing the bits and pieces to go in the pocket. They are all so fun!

This is my monthly spread for March.

I like to keep it simple and usually only jot down a few things. The weekly spreads are much busier.

How lovely are these embellishments included in the kit? Don’t forget you can also download the exclusive printables that coordinate perfectly with the main kit.

If you are a planner girl, the Clique store has a whole section where you can find stamps, stickers, monthly pages, washi, anything you need to complete your planner spread.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
