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.

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

Hello!

It’s me again! And so thrilled to be here.
Today, I present you a funny layout. I say funny, because the picture you
see on the layout, it’s my daughter. I was browsing the photos on my cellphone and
I found this one. I laughed when I saw it, what a cutie pie.

Of course, I used the Sorbet May Kit!!ck-may17-kit-1_1_orig

And here is my layout :
I used the kaisercraft paper and watercolor them. Then, I cut them a little bit to
have them smaller and use it as quotes for my layout.
I also used the alphabet thickers, puffy stickers, washi tape and a flair.theclique_1

Thanks for stopping  by
and see you next time!

April Challenge by Evi

Hello Scrappy friends!  Today I this colorful layout for the April Challenge.  I was challenged to use a lovely stamp available in the shop that reads “May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short.”  A feeling I am sure we have all felt from time to time.  I decided to create my own background paper with it and heat embossed it repeatedly on white card stock paper.  I used black embossing powder cause I wanted to add color and I wanted the embossing to add a resist to my mixed media.

I then took a few colors of blues and aqua colors of inexpensive acrylic paint and add water to have a light wash of color. I did horizontal stripes.  I cut down my paper to be an 11×11 inch square and matted it on a piece of patterned paper from the April 2017 kit from Bella Blvd.

 

 

I then continued to use the elements of the kit to continue scrapping this wonderful photo of my mom and me in our WICKED leggings.  I am a new consultant for LuLaRoe and I am all about the leggings these days, so when we saw leggings being sold we immediately bought two pairs.

I used the cut apart sheet for the added blue element on the page and love what it read, ‘something tells me Im going to cherish you forever.’  I then added the last pieces of die cuts and my last two flairs from the April add on.  The colorful hearts were punched out of the scraps of paper from a previous layout I made this month.

I think I put the stamp to good use.  Think outside the box when it comes to your stamps and create a wonderful background for your next layout.

Till next time,

Evi

Field Notes – Colorful and fun

field-notes

Hello Clique friends. I’m back today to share a couple of spreads in my traveler’s notebook. The super fun March Play kit was perfect to give my pages lots of color and a happy vibe.

For my first spread, I decided to use a couple of pictures of my daughter playing in the snow.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_Spread1

I always start by covering the pages with cardstock, as it makes them thicker and more difficult to tear. I picked white for the left side and patterned paper from the Little by little collection for the right side. I then fussy cut two of the wreaths out of the Clever Little Fox paper to use them as a base for my photos.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_CloseUp2For the opposite side, I went for a tone-on-tone look. Ephemera pieces and stickers match the colors in the background. To bring the spread together I used a branding strip across the bottom of both pages.

My second spread took a little bit more time as I decided to add some stitching to it.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_Spread2

One of the patterned papers in the kit has several words in different colors that I absolutely love. I picked the ‘heart’ one, as the color matched my daughter’s shirt in the picture. I glued the letters onto the polka dot patterned paper and stitched around them using the same color thread. The texture it adds is what I was going for. I completed the page with some ephemera pieces.

For the right side of the spread, I went for a simple look and only used a few embellishments that matched the colors on the opposite side.

I hope you felt inspired today to use the beautiful March Play kit in your traveler’s notebook. The Clique store has a lot of supplies to make your spreads come together quickly and beautifully. I can’t say enough how amazing the kits are each month. They are very versatile and can be used for a variety of projects.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

Hi Clique Kits fans,

I am very happy to be here with you today, to show you a fun way to customize the wood embellishment (one + one = us), that you can find in the March kit (Play kit)
available in the shop.

As you can see, I’ve tried to create the same effect than in the letters from the kit.
I’ve painted half the letters with a new product from Aladine: the Izink 3D Texture Paste.
magalileluc_march_geeklab2
It’s a kind of light coloured texture paste, very easy to apply.
To obtain this effect, I’ve used washi tape as masking tape. I did not have any more masking tape, but that may be better to use masking tape than you favorite washi tape, except if you want to leave the washi on the letters.
magalileluc_march_geeklab3
Then, I’ve applied my texture paste directly on the wood with my finger. The best is to follow the lines of the wood, and the embellishment is perfect for that.
Let the texture paste dry at least 10 minutes. Then take off the washi tape and enjoy!
magalileluc_march_geeklab4
I absolutely love the result!!

Then, this wood embellishment can be used in your layout.
Here are some close ups for you to see the details.

Have a great day and don’t hesitate if you have some questions.
