Guest Designer Heather Doolittle|| These Happy Moments

Hi everyone! It’s Heather Doolittle back today with another page that I made using the June Aquarelle main scrapbook kit!

I’m such a sucker for floral patterned papers and just HAD to cut out some of the florals from the Wild at Heart papers in the kit this month. Although these florals don’t have definitive edges (they overlap somewhat), I selective trimmed out the pieces that I wanted to use for this layout. I made two focal clusters with the flowers and then made a third focal point with the title. I feel like these three clusters ‘nestle’ the photo, if you know what I mean. 🙂

I totally love these copper alphabet stickers from Pinkfresh Studio. They’re the perfect size for everything! And I love that there are so many in a pack! They will definitely stretch far on your projects.

The little typewritten words are from THIS set of printables. As you can see, I added one to the title as well. They’re so perfect.

I appreciate you stopping by to see what I made with this month’s Aquarelle kit!

Wild at Heart Planner with Evi

Hello Clique Kits lovers!  Evi here, and I have a very floral planner spread using the Wild at Heart collection from Cocoa Vanilla in the June 2017 kit.  I love the rich navy colors mixed with the pinks, magenta, mints and corals in the collection.

I used the cut apart sheet for cutting out the perfect sized rectangle needed to fill the entire space in my MAMBI inserts.  My inserts are from my HAPPY planner 365 but I dislike the disc system and punch holes to put in into my Carpe Diem binder from Simple Stories.

The ephemera die cut pack comes in the kit and I picked out all the lovely florals to add the details to my spread.  I wanted to make sure I featured all the rich colors in this collection on this spread.

The butterflies are also a nice detail in this collection.  I wanted to incorporate the small positive affirmation pieces too.  ‘Dream Big’,  ‘This makes me Happy’, and ‘Memories’ add nice text to the layout.

I added in a few details to my week ahead of time with a pink, blue and aqua colored ink pens.  The rest of the space will be added as the week goes on.  I hope you are inspired by my layout and try a version of your own.

Designer in the Spotlight – Sheryl Banares

Hello everyone!!  I am super excited to introduce you to our  Designer in the Spotlight!  She has been a member of the Clique for sometime now and recently became one of our newest members on our Graphic Design team!  This month she designed the June journal cards that are included in your June Kit and even some of the exclusive cut files!

Our Designer in the Spotlight  has taken some time to answer our fun Q&A to share with all of you today!  Please say hello to Sheryl Banares!

 

 

1. Tell us a little bit about your creative process. I love creating where I feel comfortable at that moment, it can in the kitchen or in the living room even on in bed sometimes (when I’m super lazy). I don’t force myself to think of how to make a layout. I just sit down and start scrapping whenever I feel like it.

2. Where and when are you most creative? I don’t like scrapbooking at night because my lighting is terrible so I mostly scrapbook on daylight. My layouts are often inspired from pinterest, that’s where I like to search for random stuff when Im bored.

3. What are some of your must have supplies? scissors, zig glue pen and double sided tape.

4. Who are some of your influences? I’m a graphic designer so I meet a lot of creative and interesting people that are inspiring me everyday and let’s not forget the amazing scrapbook community we have on Facebook and youtube, there are lots of talented woman that truly inspire me.

5. 3 things people probably do not know about you. – I love korean dramas! (be aware! super addicting once you start) – I’m learning russian, since my fiancee’s family speak mostly russian. – I play the guitar, ukulele and keyboards.

6. Favorite: !

Book- It ends with us by Colleen Hoover !

Movie- Phantom of the opera (2004) and Titanic ! Candy- Coconut chips !

Drink- Coffee!! !

Music- anything 90’s 🙂 !

Color- light blue !

TV Show- anything with action and suspense- NCIS, Criminal minds.

7. Can you share what helps you break out of a creative slump? I love taking a walk, listening to music and riding my bike.

8. How long have you been design and what inspired you to get started. I’ve been scrapbooking for 4 years now. I started scrapbooking when I accidentally saw a process video of someone on Youtube and ever since my world became colourful and scrapbooky (I think I just invented a word)

9. How would you describe your style? My style is very much colourful and heavy embellished, I love taking my time when I’m creating the layouts. I add sometimes mix media and some stitching.

10. Can you share with everyone the places where they can connect with you such as your blog, Instagram and website. Blog- http://www.sherylbanares.com Instagram- https://www.instagram.com/sherylbanares/

11. What are your predictions for the new trends? I think we’ll be seeing more colors that we usually don’t see in scrapbook collection like purple, neon colors and some gold rose foiling, maybe even metallic colors with abstract designs.

Sheryl thank you so much for being our Designer in the Spotlight!!  I am sure our readers are looking forward to more beautiful designs from you!

Thank you for stopping by our blog today!  To get your hands on some of Sheryl designs you can grab a June Clique Kit HERE in the shop or head on over to our Digital Shop and purchase some of her cut files!  Have a wonderful day!

Well hello again!
It’s me!!! Kareen. I’m back with another layout. Yeah!
I, of course, used the Sorbet May kit? Did you fall in love with it?
Not yet? Well, what are you waiting for!

ck-may17-kit-1_1_orig

So, here is my layout!
For the background, I used the Kaisercraft paper from the kit.
It was perfect for watercolor and for a resist effect. cliquekits

Some close ups :
As you can see, I used a lot of embellishments from the kit. I only add flowers. cliquekits_2

I also used a 3″x 4″ card from the 12″x12″ Kaisercraft paper.
I watercolored it the same color of my background.cliquekits_3

I also used the printables that goes with the kit. A good way to embellish your layout!cliquekits_4

And a little extra today…. I made a video!

Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!

Mood Board: June 2017

Happy Sunday everyone! This year is just scooting on by. Can you believe we are sharing the June Mood Board and kit already? For me, June is the start of summer, lake season and warm weather. Living in a northern climate where it is cold majority of the year, I bask in the 3 months that we really “celebrate” summer. I love the sunshine during the day and the birds chirping, I love the evening when you can celebrate with friends on an outdoor patio or bon fire in the back yard or at the lake. I love weekends hanging out with friends and family, going on boat rides, playing yard games and grilling. What are your favorite parts of a warm climate?

We have titled the June Kit: Aquarelle. This kit reminds me of a garden party, floral crowns, and evenings under the stars. What is your favorite part of this mood board?

Of course I can’t leave without sharing some SNEAK PEEKS of both our Main Kit and our Travelers Notebook Kit.

Main Kit Sneak Peeks

Now how about a few sneak peeks of our Travelers Notebook Kit?

  

There you have it. Keep your eyes on our social media for more sneak peeks!! Like last month I will be doing a LIVE Facebook video sharing the kit contents on Wednesday, May 17, June Reveal Day. This month you will not only see the June Main Kit, but I’ll also be sharing the June Travelers Notebook Kit!! Check out our Facebook Page for details on when we will go live (if you miss the live airing, you can always check out the video on our page.)

Also, don’t forget to check out our May Pep Rally on Instagram, Wednesday, May 17.

Have a beautiful Sunday!
