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.

Give me Sugar! Layout by guest designer Rachel Lowe:

 

Hello everyone well this is my last share as a guest designer for Clique Kits and it has been such fun!

I have loved working with the stunning Malibu Kit!

IMG_5903.PNG

And here is my layout titled Give me Sugar! for obvious reasons!

I just adored the CK August exclusive ice cream cut file and just couldn’t resist using it.

I used the ombre striped paper from the main kit papers for the ice cream cut file and then used the sequin mix to finish them off.

I loved the puffy stickers and I have used the quote puffy sticker in keeping with my theme….give me sugar!

I have foamed mounted my photo so I could tuck embellishments under it like the ice cream and popsicle die cuts. The hexagons are from the sticker sheet.

I added the emoji face die cuts, because who isn’t happy eating ice cream!

I have finished my layout off with sewing a border around my page and adding the cut file word Sweet (in white to keep my page soft).

Here are some close up photos for you:

I love scrapping ‘no people’ photos like this, it is important to remember such things as favourite foods, seasons, books etc as they are a sum of us!

Thank you so much for stopping by this month to check out my layouts and I hope they have inspired you in some way!

August Kick Off: Let’s Go to Malibu!

CK_Aug17_Logo-02

Hi everybody! It’s me, Gia. I know-long time no blog post. That’s why I am thrilled to be back today to celebrate my favorite kit of the year, on a day that just so happens to be my birthday!

CK_BlogHeader_Aug17-01

Yay! How cute is that flair by Maryam Perez! I love all of the talent and collaboration that go into the design of every single Clique Kit. How about those perfectly coordinated resin scallop shells? And the sequins in this months kit- Erica did an unbelievable job putting that sequin mash together. I am so excited for you ALL to get your kit- whether it is the 12 x 12 paper based main kit or the delightful on-the-go version-the Traveler’s Notebook Kit- this month we are taking you to one of the hippest places. Anywhere in the world is gonna feel like Malibu!

Malibu TN kit

I have just two words right now that sum up this month’s fun twist! Holographic and Neon! It’s a little bit hard to capture the gorgeous holographic highlights in the Pink Paislee Summer Lights collection in the photos- you will see what I mean when you get to hold it your hands!  When I first opened my box, I just wanted to eat it all up. Not to mention the TN Kit contains not one or two, but a WHOLE PACK of Neon gel pens from Kaisercraft. I kid you not this is like a birthday and Christmas all rolled up in one box!

 

Inspired by the Mood Board!

So the mood board by Lacey Gasper this month kind of jump started my mojo this month. I took one look at that giant scallop shell pool float and I thought to myself- I have to use that “look” on a layout. Take a look!

CK_Aug17-Moodboard-v2

Yes we have seen a lot of tropical motifs this past year- between flamingoes and palm trees and pineapples (and I am crazy about them all), but this scallop shell in luscious iridescent pinkish-lavender captured my attention as something refreshingly different!

I searched up “seashell” in the Silhouette Design store and loved this one by Totally Jamie

I backed the cut with different papers from the 6×6 paper in the TN kit and stitched around the edges for some texture, finishing it off with some sequins for embellishment! Here are some close ups.

Kinda Wish I Was a Mermaid!

But the next best thing was seeing all of the fun mermaid stuff in the August spotlight collection to scrapbook photos of my darling daughter in her mermaid tail.

This idea for this scalloped cut file was one of those Aha moments between Lacey and I to work with this month’s kits and I fell hard for  this GORGEOUS final design Lacey created! I know I will be cutting it again and again, but for this 8 1/2 x 11 layout I wanted the subtle white on white effect for the texture with bits and pieces of ephemera giving it the feel of water’s waves around an underwater mermaid’s lair.  (Don’t you adore that holographic seahorse?) Grab some puffy mermaid stickers right here while supplies last!

Thanks for being here as part of this community! I can’t wait to see what you create!

Art Studio: This is what life is about

Good morning friends. I hope you’re having a great week! Do you ever open up your new kit and get excited, thinking you know just the right photo to use? A photo that maybe you haven’t scrapped yet because you didn’t have any product that might work with the photo or theme of the photo? Well, that’s what happened to me with this kit. I immediately thought of the photo I had from the fair last summer. Edward and Sidney had the best time together and I had one particular photo that captured that moment…

 

I used a variety of patterns for the background of my layout. I added the transparency at the bottom of the layout to cover the wood grain paper. I love how it looks. And to add a little color to the heart pattern, I colored a few hearts with a pink marker to help blend the pattern in with the layout.

I used the green and blue strip paper to make a little collage of embellishments on the right-side of the layout.

Thanks for visiting today!

Yearbook: Grade 1 Memories

Happy Monday friends! Today, I am sharing my first layout using the July Clique Kit. I love this month’s kit. It’s been awhile since I scrapbooked a layout using products from Elle’s Studio. I really like the patterns and die cuts!

A few weeks ago, just  few days before the last day of school, I went through Edward’s book bag. While I was going through his bag, pulling out his recess bag of toys and such, I came across this little booklet he made at school. It was titled, “My End of year Memory Book.” I get excited when I see these little booklets because I get to read what he writes without having to ask him what he learned that day etc.

I don’t know why, but I can never decide where to place my enamel dots! They never look right. Ever. Is it just me or does this happen to you too?!

I used one of the die cut tags as a template for my journaling tag. After I printed my journaling on white cardstock, I covered the typed journaling with a tag and cut around it. Then I did the same with the transparency sheet and layered it on top of the journaling tag with a sticker heart. I really like how it turned out.

Normally, I use the sentiments from my die cut packs for the title, however, for this layout, I wanted to mix it up a bit so I used two different alphas for the title.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Yearbook – Showcase

13708352_10206587466700644_3123589168410663782_o

Hello scrappers! It’s Victoria and I am back with a pocket layout I created using the gorgeous May 2017 Sorbet Kit. This kit features an amazing color story and stunning icons!  I could not wait to put it to good use!

-kit-1_1_orig

I love pocket layouts for two main reasons: I can incorporate a ton of photos and I can tell a robust story. For this layout, I documented my daughter’s recent school showcase, which is an opportunity for students to demonstrate what they have learned during their unit of study. The students created projects based on the intersection of recycling (science), financial literacy (math), poetry (language arts/reading) and artistic careers. I love that I am able to see my daughter apply the concepts she is learning in class!

During the show case, I took a ton of photos. And honestly, there was not one photo I was willing to sacrifice. Ultimately, I paired down my collection to the main photos that told the story I wanted to document. For me, the photos and story always come first and typically serve as a starting point for my layouts. Using a pocket style layout is a great way to showcase multiple photos and to tell a robust story. I like to keep my pocket layouts clean and simple.

For this layout, I am using a Becky Higgins Project Life Pocket Protector (Design F) that features two 4×6 pockets and twenty 3×4 pockets (10 pockets on each side, front and back). I started by trimming some of the pattern papers down to 3×4 pocket cards and incorporating them with a few of the pocket cards that came in the kit. I created the title card using the gold chipboard font stickers by Thickers called “Brush” to spell out the word “Showcase”.  To the title I added a die cut camera and a puffy arrow by Pink Fresh Studio and a 3×4 photo of the front door of my daughter’s classroom.

The remaining cards were embellished using some of the May 2017 Sorbet printables that are available in the Clique Kits Monthly Downloads.  I used a variety of die cuts, most of which are popped up on foam squares for added dimension and a few of the puffy embellishments from the “Dream On” Studio Puffs Stickers by Pink Fresh Studio.

Creating pocket layouts is so much fun and a fantastic way to document a great story with lots of photos!

Happy Scrappin’!
