What inspired you to design the Wish You Were Here collection?

I wanted to do a travel collection, that include a lot of bright colors and different travel icons. And my biggest inspiration came from the super-cute llama that’s a part of the collection!

Favorite movie – The King & I

Favorite color- Yellow

Favorite book- Anne of Green Gables

Favorite food- Fish/Shrimp Tacos

What are your trend predictions for 2018? Do you think we will still see pineapples and flamingos?

It’s always hard to predict what will show up in the paper crafting world, but I think it would be fun to see some collections that reflect the farmhouse look that is so popular in home decor right now. And I wouldn’t mind, if the pineapples and flamingos stick around, because let’s face it, they are always fun to use!

Thanks for connecting with our readers Ashley!  Shrimp tacos are some of my favorite too! Yum!!  Ashley has also created a fun cut file to share with our readers and a couple spreads in her Travelers Notebook using her Wish You Were Here collection!   This file is perfect to use in your travelers notebook or scrapbook layouts and you can download it HERE for free!

Love that llama die cut and how the cut file is the perfect size for the travelers notebook!!  We would love to see how you use this free cut file so make sure to tag Clique Kits and The Cut Shoppe in your projects!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Make sure to follow the Clique Kits blog and Ashley Horton for more inspiration using the September Sundance Travelers Notebook kit and the Wish You Were Here collection!  Enjoy the rest of your day!

Geek Lab – Free Cut File Fun

Hello Clique Fans!  Erica here with you today to share a layout using some of the July Travelers Notebook kit and a free cut file we offered back in May!  This kit features the Ain’t Life Grand collection from Pretty Little Studio designed by Ashley Horton.  I also printed out the exclusive Travelers Notebook printables sheet that comes free for subscribers!

This cut file was designed by Maryam Perez for our May Challenge and I just love it!  You can grab it for free HERE.  You can also check out our Facebook group The Clique for even more free cut files!  I started out by picking a few papers from the kit and cutting them down to back the cutfile.

I used my Tombow Aqua adhesive to add the cut up papers to my cutfile!  I did not back all of the open spots because I wanted to leave some white spaces!  I love how it turned out!

The photo I am using is of my two youngest boys swimming in their pool!  They love to be in the water and always have so much fun!

Once I backed my photo with a couple layers I added it to my layout and began embellishing my layout!  I used products from the kit and also so Ain’t Life Grand products that I picked up in the Pretty Little Studio shop!  Clique Kits loves to support women in business and small business and PLS is one of our favorites!  Here is a look at my completed layout using the July Travelers Notebook Kit!

Clique Kits has a handful of freebies in the digital shop as well that you should check out!  Using cutfiles for your layouts or cards is a fun way to use up smaller papers and add lots of patterns!  Remember if you use CK files in your projects to tag us on Facebook or Instagram!  We love to see what everyone is creating!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
