Geek Lab: Favorite

Hello friends! Maryám here to share a new project using the digital exclusives files of this month. If you are a subscriber you can find them here, or if you are not a subscriber you can them here.

As you can see on the right side of the spread I put my photo, the title and some embelllishments, but on the left side of the spread I decided to create a kind of a pattern paper using the flowers printables of this month.

Here is a quick tutorial of how I did the pattern paper:

1.You have to open a new file on photoshop with the size of your travelers notebook’s page.

2. Now, you have to go to “file” and then click on “place”, in that way you will can add the png elements that were included on the printables folder.3. Once you have the flowers right on the file, you are going to duplicate the layers over and over again. In that way you will create your own pattern.

4. If your pattern it’s done, save it, and send it to print!

Here are some close-ups and some extra details:

The camera is from a chipboard sheet from the beautiful Oasis collection, and the leaves are rubber shapes from Pinkfresh Studio.

I hope you liked my pages and if you have any questions, please put them in the comments below.

Have a wonderful day!

Clique Agenda: June 2017 Monthly Spread

Hello, CK friends!

Donna here sharing my last post for this month of June using the Aquarelle kit.

ck-jun17-mainkit-6_1_orig

as well as some of the exclusive printables in the kit

ck-jun17-cliqueprints-web3_3_orig

First, let me show you one of the tricks I learned along the way. I’m sure I am did not come up with this original idea but I will share it anyway. I use a template as you see in the image, to cut the tiny little squares in my monthly spread.

It’s not really perfect but the difference is not that noticeable, so it’ll do. First, I measured one of the squares and used this tag (it’s quite sturdy so it can be used over and over again) as a template.

Use a pencil (so you can erase afterward) and trace around the area you want to cut. I keep this template nearby so it’s ready when I need it.

Here is how I decorated my monthly spread for June using the kit. (Note: stamp used from my stash and not included in the kit).

Field Notes – MY PERSONAL JOURNAL

CK- Field Notes -traveler notes - header

Hello Clique Kits friends!

Nathalie here with a new entry to my personal journal (aka my TN) using pieces from the beautiful “Aquarelle” kit, and a few other goodies from the Clique Kits Store.

sneak1

Most of you know that I keep a personal journal, which i use as my Project Life/ daily documenter method.  Though there is days that only writing appears on the page, there are those other times when you  need to include pictures.  I have kept a journal for a long time, so i am always trying to come up with new ideas for my entries – “Life is all about variety”-.  Here is one of the entries from a few weeks ago  after attending a 65th birthday party for a very good close friend of the family!

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-2

Our friend Martha loves flowers, so i set to create  a background for the page using the  Daisy  Layering Stamp from Altenew -which i picked from the Clique Store-.   For these flowers, I pulled a few archival inks, as well as some Hampton Arts inks from my stash, and stamped the flowers on a lightweight watercolor paper cut to the size of my TN page.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-3

I tried my best to leave the center of the stamped page clear, so  the eye is drawn to the center of the page.  For this page, I pulled more goodies from the Clique Store -you should really check all the goodies available for sale at the store- in this case i am using Pink Paislee’s C’est La Vie Acetate letters, and the clear stickers to create the title of this page.  I paired them with some of the Aquarelle TN kit exclusive printables, and a piece of the branding  strip of the Wild at Heart collection papers.   I just love how the black in the title pops from the page.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-4

Before gluing the page down to the TN, I cut a piece of vellum to fit the TN size, leaving about 3/4 in extra along the short side of the piece -the vellum measured 8×5 in for this spread-.  I marked with a bone folder the extra space of the vellum.  Before attaching it to the TN, i stitched one of the cards included in the Aquarelle TN kit, and added my sentiment.  Then glued the extra flap from the vellum piece to the TN, and added the stamped page on top of the vellum flap glued to the page.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-6

Before completely stitching the  card to the vellum, i added one of the stamped images – i created some extra flowers, and fussy cut them- , some of the large flower sequin from the May kit releases, and a few gold flower sequin from my stash.  I just love that little shaker pocket, and surprise as you turn the page.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-7

I took so many pictures of the celebration that day, but wanted to keep the focus of the page on Martha and her family ( we are very close friends of the entire familly), so I created a film strip of some of the pictures, layered a bit of the tissue paper that the kits come wrapped with, and glued it to the center of a piece of copy paper cut to the TN size.  Here, all the rest of the fussy cut flowers were used to frame the picture strip.  I pulled one of the fabric labels from the Aquarelle kit  – i was lucky to receive the “Birthday Wishes” in my kit-, and one of the copper asterisks from the Alpha set.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-5

All Clique Kits are always loaded with lots of goodies that make their way to my stash, so i pulled some of the stickers from the Love Always kit  -which sold out-, and added them to one of the clusters of this page.  I love how this spread came together (sorry no video this time!),  the beautiful stamped flowers worked perfect to document this lovely lady on her 65th birthday.

There are so many products available at the Clique Store that have been carefully curated to match all the kits, so stop by to check most of the products used in this spread, and many more for some beautiful upcoming kits.  As always I am a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.

See you all soon!

Geek Lab: Don’t give up

Hello CK friends! Maryám here to share a card using the June 2017 printables and some Clique Cuts that I designed this month for the shop.

For the base of the card I used white neenah cardstock. The cut file was cut with my Silhouette Cameo and I backed it up with a paper from Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection.

On the center of the card I put two flowers from the printable sheet that I fussy cut with my scissors. As a title I used a word that says “don’t give up” and at the end I added some enamel dots.

Here are some close-ups to see more details:

 

I hope you liked my card and I can’t wait to see what you will create using the CK exclusives of this month.

Have a wonderful day friends!

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. 🙂

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!
