Hello friends! I have a fun mixed media layout to share with you today using some watercolor paints from Shimmerz Paints and stamps from Altenew. And of course, all of the other gorgeous papers and embellishments used are from the September Sundance kit. LOVE this kit. It’s so pretty and it’s perfect for scrapbooking those special outdoors events.

I used a some watercolor paints in the colors of beige, blue and green to draw different paint stroke lines down the page and across the page to create a fun background for my layout. While I was trying to figure out how to incorporate the tiny circle stickers on my layout, I found a button in my stash that was the perfect size for the sticker!

I cut some flowers from the patterned paper to use as a die cut on my layout. I needed some flowers and that blue flower in the patterned is gorgeous!

I splashed some gold paint onto the layout too. I love how much a touch of gold makes this layout pop. Such a fun, happy layout.

The tiny word stickers fit within the sticker banners perfectly! I always like using sticker banners with some kind of sentiment so I made these stickers work for me!

Study Hall: Enjoy

Hello, friends! Maryám here to share with you a closer look of the layout I made for the challenge of this month. If you didn’t see it, the challenge for this month is all about highlighting fun ways to use the plaid washi tape that came in this month’s kit. We also have an optional sketch created by Kristine Davidson. Check out all the details about the challenge here.

 When I got my kit I had no idea of how to use the washi tape but after some hours thinking I decided to put it on a white cardstock and punch some circles and then cut it in half to create some cute garlands for my page. I really liked the result I got.

Here is my final page:

Here are some close-ups:

I hope you liked my page and I can not wait to see what you will create with the washi tape of this month. Don’t forget to join our facebook group to participate in our challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Have a wonderful day.

Mood Board – October 2017

Whoa, it’s September. That is how I feel right now. When did September arrive, I missed it. I hope you are enjoying the journey with your September 2017 kits. If you haven’t received yours as of yet, they have all been shipped and yours should be arriving on  your door step soon.

Tonight I’m going to share the mood board and sneak peeks of our October Kit with you. This kit will get you in that bossy pants kind of mood. So grab your coffee (or wine), phone the girls friends, and get ready to scrapbook. The October 2017 kit is called Girl Tribe.

Alright now that you have seen this inspiring mood board, how about some sneak peek photos? Here are some sneak peeks of our Main October Kit. Subscriptions for our Main Kit & Travelers Notebook Kit will begin with our October kit will open Monday, September 11. Limited amount available so sign-up quickly. We ship internationally.

Okay don’t you just LOVE this kit so far? How about some pictures of our Travelers Notebook Kit?

I’m so excited about this kit and can’t wait to cut it up!

Now, I also want to say I’ve been thinking of all those still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and those in the midst of Hurricane Irma in Florida. My mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and brother-in-law all live just south of Tampa. They are all safe and not in the area as they evacuated. But I hope you all stay safe.

Finally, join us all week for October Sneak peeks with the full reveal on September 20th. Have a great evening.

Clique Agenda – September Spread

clique-agenda

Hello everyone! Enza here to share a planner spread with you today. The colors in the Sundance Kit are perfect to embellish September pages and give you a feel of the upcoming fall season.

CK_Sep17_MainKit-28

The first thing I usually do when I plan my week is write down appointments, activity schedules, and to-do lists. This is a crazy month for us, so the best way to get everything done and get a sense of how busy our week is going to be is to have it all in front of my eyes.

Once that is done, I start adhering die cuts and sticker sentiments to fill out the empty spots. I used several pieces from the Creekside collection ephemera pack and exclusive printables that coordinate perfectly with the rest of the colors in the kit.

I am a sucker for inspiring and encouraging phrases and sentiments, and you can find a few of them across the spread, along with floral pieces in beautiful fall colors.

That is all for today, friends! I hope you enjoyed looking at my planner pages and will feel inspired to use bits and pieces from this month kit to decorate your own spreads. Visit the Clique store for other fun items that are perfect to personalize your planner.

Until next time,

Enza

Study Hall: Simple Card

Hi friends,

Melissa here with you again and I’m sharing my third, out of four, project using the gorgeous September Sundance kit! I hope you are enjoying this kit as much as I did and are creating lots and lots! How can you not with such beautiful product and amazing inspiration from our team? Yay!

Today I’m sharing a relatively easy card to make. I just had fun with this one. No fancy design notes. No frills or extras. I just took it back to basics with this card and had fun. I went to a design that I’ve used many times on my cards… because I love it… and because it’s such a versatile one to boot. Essentially, I create half of the card with patterned paper, a diagonal slope, and minimal embellishing.

Here it is with a few close-ups:

Those florals are so easy to use! I also threw in some of the washi tape from the 1 Canoe 2 collection. While these papers are from the Fancy Pants collection, I wanted to show well all of these collections and kit items go together. Love it!

I did use a few things from my stash. The gold enamel dots are from my stash and I used two stamps that were from past kits or sponsors. You can also find them in the store… I used a set from Latina Crafter and Honey Bee Stamps. They are no longer in the shop but, you can go check out the individual manufacturers to see all the wonderful product they have!

How fun is that acrylic heart? They are included in the kit and so perfect for that finishing touch!

Thanks for joining me today! Until next time…
