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. ūüôā

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!

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

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

Thanks for stopping  by
and see you next time!

So here is my first layout I want to show you!!!
(Ok, I’m nervous now! hihi)

I used two patterned-paper of the kit.  I love to play with the dimension of the paper. I gave it an angle and work with it. Also the die-cuts and puffy stickers, the
buttons from the kit and the sequins. I added some flowers and leaves.

Guest Contributor – Angie Pond

Happy Monday everyone!!  We have been so thankful this month to have our April Guest Contributor Angie Pond sharing so much inspiration with us!  Today I have another layout Angie created using the April kit!  Make sure to follow Angie on her blog to see more of her fabulous work!  Now lets get into her layout using the April kit and the fabulous printables designed by Creative Director Gia Lau!

For the April challenge, I drew inspiration from the different blocks of paper that are shown in the sketch. I used many of the beautiful papers from the Jelly Bean kit and treated each block of patterned paper almost like it’s own little layout.
I used one of the exclusive cut files under my photo. I cut it on white card stock and painted it with watercolors. Then I simply cut it apart and used it as an additional layer under the cute photo of my nephew on his first Easter. 
Most of the embellishments on my layout are from the printable files that come with the kit each month. I adore that cute bunny and I even used the “Happy Easter” printable as my title.
The flags in the upper left block of my layout are from the printables as well and they make a great addition along with my journaling.
In the section where my title is, I hand cut a few clouds and used that printable doily shape almost like a sun. The pink cloud comes from one of the Bella Blvd. clips that came in the kit. I simply cut the clip part off and adhered it to my layout.
I did some stamping on the block with the pink polka dots. I used just some black ink and a circle outline stamp to add some more interest to the paper. I pair the word labels and the circles from the exclusive printables with a few enamel dots from the kit to complete that section of the layout.
Thank you Angie for another awesome project using the April 2017 Kit!! ¬† I love all the details in your page and love how you used the exclusives!! ¬†Here is a look at Angie’s completed layout!
Thank you all so much for stopping by today!  Please remember to leave Angie some love down below!  We still have a few April kits left in the shop right now and we also have a great kit sale going on!!  Have a wonderful day!

Rainy Day Fun – GD Lisa Lahiff

Hi! ¬†I am so excited to be here on the Clique Kit Blog!!! ¬†My name is Lisa Lahiff and I will be guest designing for the month of March, thanks to the amazing Clique Kit Team for having me! ¬†When I opened my beautifully wrapped March Kit “Play” I squealed with delight. ¬†This kit is packed with one of my favorite new lines called Little by Little by Shimelle. ¬† When I saw the rain drop patterned paper I instantly knew what photos I had to document first…

The vellum black numbers were perfect for drawing attention to my photos, and to help them stand out more from the busy background I used a white gel pen to add dashed lines outlining each one.

The striped rainbow patterned paper created the perfect lines to help keep my thickers straight.  And the clouds found in the Little by Little Die Cut Shapes package played off of my title too!  With a few sequins I was able to create my own rain fun.

Let’s Hold Hands Always

student of the month

Hello everyone!  Erica here with you today to bring you one of our guest contributors!  Renee Aslette has been working with our Limited Edition Valentine Kit and we are so excited to share what she has created!  First lets get to know Renee a little better!

What is your favorite tool?

My favorite tool at the moment would have to be the We R Memory Keepers Typeset Typewriter. I love it! I got it for Christmas from my husband and I use it all the time.

Who is your favorite designer/paper company?

My favourite designer/paper company would have to be Cocoa Vanilla Studios. I love the colors, the embellishments and there has not been a release that I haven’t loved.

Where do you find inspiration?

My inspiration is usually my two boys, Jackson and Lucas. I love to create layouts using their photo’s. I do like to create by having a whole collection on my desk and I just go from there.

When you scrap do you listen to music, watch tv or need complete quiet?

I am very fortunate to have a scrap room in the house. I have Pandora on my computer and I always listen to music while I am creating. One Direction is one of the channels I created on my Pandora Station but don’t tell anyone!

How long have you been scrapping and one thing you love about it?

I have been scrapbooking for approximately 9 years. I love the people I get to meet and connect with along the way. I love that I can just create for me. I find it to be my little piece of heaven. I feel a bit lost if I haven’t done anything for a couple of weeks.

Thanks Renee for sharing a little bit about yourself with us!  Now lets get to the beautiful project for today!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!!

I am so excited to be a Guest Contributor with you this month.

I was very fortunate to be designing with The January Kit – Hey Sugar and the Limited Edition Valentine’s Kit which has since Sold Out.

This is a layout I created by using various patterned papers from the Kit and just having some fun with them. Cutting and tearing to create this layout.

Here are some close-ups:

How awesome is this brush letter sticker title from Crate Paper. As soon as I had seen that title in the kit, I knew exactly which photo I would use.

img_4172

I cut strips of paper from the January Kit РHey Sugar.  The gold hearts are from the same kit, it was the specialty vellum.  I fussy cut the hearts out to use one their own. The crosses were from the Puffy Stickers from the Fancy Pants РJoy Parade Collection.

I cut thin strips of paper from the kit and layered them to create the effect across the page.

I just love the puffy stickers!!

My journaling says, “I remember my mum and dad holding hands.¬† I loved seeing it.¬† Now I get to hold your hands anytime I like.”

The photo is from our wedding day.

Thank you so much for stopping by to get to know me a little better.

I have loved being a part of the Clique Kits Team for the month.
