Field Notes-Dear Ryder

field-notes

Hello again CK friends!  Candace here to share another traveler’s notebook spread.  I love the small format of traveler’s notebooks and the ability to quickly put together a beautiful spread.

My little guy is completely obsessed with Snapchat right now.  He constantly asks if he can see my phone and play.  I love to hear his little laugh as sees his picture change.  I knew I wanted to document this fun little tradition right now.

I started with the insert that comes in the new travelers notebook kit.  I love the white pages!  I thought it would be fun to use the word strips from Pinkfresh Studio to write a letter to Ryder about how much I love this time with him.

On the left side of the spread I inserted the word strips between sentences from my typewriter.  For the right side of the spread I layered the photo on top of the grey circle paper from the Pinkfresh Studio 6×6 paper pad.

To add the final touches to the spread I added a few puffy stickers with bunched up thread underneath for texture and interest. I love the soft colors that play off the cute picture.

On your next spread try adding embellishments or word strips between your journaling for a fun new technique!  You can check out the new travelers notebook kit, or our beautiful scrapbook kit here.

Thanks again for stopping by!  Go make some beautiful memories!

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.

And some close ups :
I love watercolor, I think I use it on every layout. It gave a little extra to the layout.

Geek Lab-U & I

Blog Image_Geek Lab

Hello friends!  Candace here to share a little Geek Lab with you.  Today I am going to show you how easy it is to place your journaling in the perfect spot on the base of your layout.

For the base of my layout I started with a plain white 8.5×11 piece of card stock.  I was inspired by a layout by Ali Edwards where she created a large title in the middle of the page with journaling to the right side and circles framing the bottom of the page.

I used various circle punches to punch out 3 inch and 2 inch circle photos of my hubby and I along with various papers from this months kit.  Without adhering the circles down I laid out the spread and embellishments to get a good idea of exactly where my title and journaling would go.

After the spread was completely laid out I measured where I wanted the title and journaling to fit.  Next, I opened a new 8.5 x 11 canvas in Photoshop.  I made sure that the rulers were visible by clicking the dropdown menu “View”.

Next, again under the “view” drop down menu I selected “New Guide”.  I created one horizontal guide 1.5inches down from the top and one vertical guide 4.25inches over from the left.

Screenshot 2017-04-21 14.14.53.png

I created a text box and slid it right into the corner of the box the grid created.  By keeping my journaling within the bounds of the grid I knew that my journaling would not interfere with the title or any of my photos and embellishments.

I printed out the journaling on the base of my layout then transferred the title, photos and embelishments.

It is just that easy to add your journaling into the perfect spot on your spreads!  Check out the close ups of how the layout came together.

Yearbook – Out Of This World

13708352_10206587466700644_3123589168410663782_o

Hello, Clique friends! I’m back today with a layout featuring the gorgeous May Sorbet Kit. The colors in this kit are absolutely amazing and the exclusives coordinate beautifully with it.

CK Sorbet Kit

The main inspiration for this layout came from one of the background cut files that will be available in the Clique digital store.ck-may17-storecuts-web3_origI initially intended to use the cut file as it is, but then decided to scatter the different size stars around my pictures and layer them to crate a lot of dimension and texture.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_Out Of This World2

Since the patterned paper I chose as my background is very similar in color to the one I used for the stars, I decided to just use pink acrylic paint to create some contrast. I still wanted my layout to have a soft look, so the light colored paint worked perfectly for it.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_CloseUp3

Some of the stars are cut out of vellum. I love the different texture it adds.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_CloseUp1

Once all the stars were positioned as I liked them around my pictures, I started embellishing. I tend to go for a tone-on-tone look most of the times to make the colors stand out more.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_CloseUp4

For my title, I used another exclusive cut file that will be available with the May Sorbet kit.ck-may17-storecuts-web5_origThe Pink Fresh Studio Reverie paper with its gorgeous blue adds the right pop of color the layout needed.

Mood Board – May 2017

1 Comment

Happy Sunday and happy Easter everyone! Today I’m here to share with you the May Mood Board. There have been so many awesome things going on at Clique Kits including a NEW Travelers Notebook Subscription Kit! We have a very limited amount to this kit subscription so head over and subscribe today before they are sold out.

The Travelers Notebook kit has a similar feel to the main kit, but includes completely different products. So if you subscribe to both the Main Kit & Travelers Notebook Kit you will receive two different kits, that can easily coordinate with each other.

The May Kits are titled Sorbet. The colors of the kit and overall feel just reminded us of Sorbet. We do have a few subscription openings for the main kit, so head over and subscribe today!

Don’t you just love the feel of this?! How about some sneak peeks of the Main Kit?

Of course I want to share some of the images of our Travelers Notebook Kit as well.

This year I personally began scrapbook in a Travelers Notebook. It fits my lifestyle better as it is quicker for me because of the smaller format and because it’s just me, my husband and our two dogs, we often don’t have super exciting things for me to scrapbook. The travelers notebook though seems perfect for the little day to day things that happen. It has also helped me focus no journaling more.

The Travelers Notebook Kit works for more then those who document that way. It is also perfect for the card maker, mini albums, Project Life, and even scrapbook layouts. So don’t think it is limited to Travelers Notebooks.

Spring Sale

Don’t forget we have a spring sale going on right now! Get a warehouse box of 3 past Kits (from 2016) for $65 including shipping! We also have an Embellishment Grab Bag for $20. The supplies is limited, so run over to our shop to pick yours up today!

Reveal Week

Join us on Wednesday for the full May Kit reveal. I will be on Facebook Live on Wednesday showing the kit in person! So keep your eyes on our Facebook page to check out the kit and the exclusive digital products.

April Instagram Share

Wednesday we will also have our April Instagram Share where you can check out projects using our April 2017 Kit! Comment on the Instagram posts for a chance to win a gift card to our shop.

Thank you for joining me today. Have a beautiful day.

yearbook

Hey friends! Steph here with a fun Yearbook post for you. 🙂 I recently celebrated my 30th birthday and I really wanted to document a trio of silly photos I took with one of my best friends.

IMG_3898-imp

There were so many fun pattern papers in this month’s Jellybean kit that I really wanted to use a bunch of them. I decided to layer strips of some of my favorites and ruffle them a bit for extra texture.

IMG_3900

Since there was so much interest on my page with all of the patterns, I decided to keep my embellishments to a minimum. I journaled on the bottom of my page and created faux “stitches” with black pen marks throughout my page. My title was a simple die cut word from white cardstock that I adhered with staples.

Such a happy turnout!! This girl is such a blessing and I love that I had the perfect papers to document this fun moment!! Thanks for stopping by! Happy creating!

Xo, Stephanie
