Yearbook with Evi// Electric Love

Hello scrappy peeps!  I am so excited to have the ability to play with the Pink Paislee Summer Lights collection that is featured in the August 2017 kit.  For today’s Yearbook spread, I documented a weekend with family and friends.

The holographic elements in this collection are my favorite.  Once I figured out the photos it was easy to use some of the cut apart elements.

I used the stickers on the outside of the page protector from the 6×12 sheet.  I like doing this to add some interest to my pocket pages.  This months kit also comes with 5 dimensional sea shells that are so amazing but did not use them on this layout but I wanted to include them in the photos.

I did my journaling with a metallic silver pen to go with the holographic elements used in the layout.

I am 23 weeks pregnant here so I like watching my bump grow.  My scrappy friend, Katty Miranda also came by to say hello that day.  I am grateful to live in Florida so photos of palm trees are always needed to document summer.

Hope you have some inspiration for your next pocket page layout.  Enjoy your scrapping.

Give me Sugar! Layout by guest designer Rachel Lowe:

 

Hello everyone well this is my last share as a guest designer for Clique Kits and it has been such fun!

I have loved working with the stunning Malibu Kit!

IMG_5903.PNG

And here is my layout titled Give me Sugar! for obvious reasons!

I just adored the CK August exclusive ice cream cut file and just couldn’t resist using it.

I used the ombre striped paper from the main kit papers for the ice cream cut file and then used the sequin mix to finish them off.

I loved the puffy stickers and I have used the quote puffy sticker in keeping with my theme….give me sugar!

I have foamed mounted my photo so I could tuck embellishments under it like the ice cream and popsicle die cuts. The hexagons are from the sticker sheet.

I added the emoji face die cuts, because who isn’t happy eating ice cream!

I have finished my layout off with sewing a border around my page and adding the cut file word Sweet (in white to keep my page soft).

Here are some close up photos for you:

I love scrapping ‘no people’ photos like this, it is important to remember such things as favourite foods, seasons, books etc as they are a sum of us!

Thank you so much for stopping by this month to check out my layouts and I hope they have inspired you in some way!

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

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!

Guest Designer Rachel Lowe – Love Summer Layout:

I am so thrilled to be here as a guest designer for Clique Kits all the way from Australia!

When the Malibu kit arrived it was a swoon moment, how beautiful is it!

KIT2

I have created a 12 x 12 layout today.

IMG_5889.JPG

I love white on white and so I started with using this wonderful Clique cut file Love, which is the Valentine 2016 cut file.

I knew I wanted the theme of my layout to be Love Summer.

I then chose another Clique cut file which was the August 2016 cut file as it reminded me of a Hibiscus flower.  When I cut this I kept the centres of the leaves and then cut the petals from the patterned paper.

I wanted my Hibiscus cut file to have height so I foam taped the petals and leaves.

Now for the fun part, embellishing! I created a polaroid shaped mat for my photo and added some random machine sewing on it to add texture.

I hand cut the mermaid from the journal card paper and scattered the sequin mix around her.

I created a cluster embellishment to the left of my photo, layering for visual interest.

I added a sticker heart to the top of my page adding a word sticker Summer. Often my title is not prominent on my page but more of a subtle theme that is evident through out my layout.

Here are some close up photos for you:

I love simplicity and pretty, that being my aim of this layout. I hope you agree!

Thank you for joining me today and I will see you again soon.

Mood Board – August 2017

EEKS!!! Yes, I’m screaming because I’m SO EXCITED about the August kit! Today I’m going to share with you the August Kit Mood Board and of course some SNEAK PEEKS!!!! I hope you love this kit as much as I do! Lets first start with our kit name. We have titled our August 2017 Kit: Malibu!! I feel like this name is a PERFECT fit for the kit and it’s contents.

If you love that logo, WAIT till you see the Mood Board! I love putting mood boards together. This was one of may favorite things to do in design school and I love doing it for my clients as well. It’s a great process to really find the feel of a project. So creating mood boards for Clique Kits is one of my favorite things to do. This mood board came together so easily. I had so many images it was hard to choose what to use. So I hope you find this board as inspiring as I do!

Do you have ANY clue yet what paper line we may be featuring in our August 2017 Kit? If you don’t yet, maybe these sneak peek images will help you out!!
