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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

Selfie Delightful – Guest Contributor Kareen Dion

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

Some close-ups : theclique_2theclique_3

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
