August Kick Off: Let’s Go to Malibu!


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!


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! ย 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!


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 ย 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. ย (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!

Hello dear friends!! Stephanie Gold here and I am feeling super special because I get to show you a project today using the brand new, Travelers Notebook Kits!! If you haven’t seen them yet or want to subscribe, CLICK HERE because this kit is filled with notebook goodness!! ๐Ÿ™‚


This month’s kit is loaded with sunshine, beaches, popsicles… basically anything that reminds you of summer! I had this adorable photo of my two littles super happy while eating their homemade popsicles, I knew it was the perfect picture to document with this kit.


I used the insanely adorable and neon gel pens (included!!) to create little faux “stitches” around certain parts of my page.


And these stickers! Eek! They are see through and amazing.


Worth mentioning as well is this stitched popsicle. So. Many. Heart Eyes.

Alright everyone! Thank you so much for having me and I hope to see you all again soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Xo, Stephanie

I took this photo back in June at the beach here in Italy and I decided to cut in in a circle using my BigShot. I don’t know why but I cut my pictures in this shape a lot lately!


I wanted to use a lot of patterned papers so I cut some triangles around the photo and I backed them with the papers. ๐Ÿ™‚



I love the puffy stickers that we got in the kit and the sequins too!


I really hope that you will like the layout and that you’ll feel inspired to create!! love, Elsabetta.

Hello everyone! It’s Elisabetta here today to show you a new layout with the August Kit ๐Ÿ™‚ I took this selfie with a friend in Naples this spring and I wanted to add a Neapolitan touch to it!

Naples is very famous, among other things, also for its music, so I decided to include the lyrics of a Neapolitan song in the layout! ๐Ÿ™‚

Schermata 2016-07-14 alle 16.26.21

I simply taped the lyrics on my computer and printed them on my white paper and that’s it! I used the font “American Typewriter” because I really like how it looks ๐Ÿ™‚


I just added a few embellishments and that’s it! I really like how the lyrics look on the page and I like the fact that you immediatly understand where this picture was taken (at least if you’re italian :P)




Mood Board – August 2016

Prom Committee

Happy Sunday everyone! Can you believe it is already the middle of July and time to share the August Mood Board? This mood board has me dreaming of summer nights; those nights when you are sitting outside taking in the world and listening to the sounds around you and realizing (if you live in a 4 season climate,ย like I do) that fall and winter will be here before I’m readyย and to just live in the now.

The August kit is named Rio. As you know the summer Olympics take place in August in Rio de Janeiro. There are so many things I love about the Olympics. I LOVE the opening ceremony, swimming, beach volleyball, gymnastics, diving, synchronized swimming, track & field…oh the list could go on. I also love how this ties into Clique Kits (okay, maybe not the sports aspect), but the fact that we have subscribers all over the world. We come together and celebrate, document and share our lives little moments.


Alright, enough babbling. Here is the August Mood Board.


Now time for some SNEAK peeks of our August kit! I just adore these and can’t wait to show you the whole kit!




Have an amazing Sunday everyone.
