Geek Lab: You and Me

Hello!!! It’s Donna here and I’m very excited to be back on the CK Design Team!

For my first post and project, I will be sharing a layout using the April 2017 kit, “Jellybean”ck-apr17-kit4_orig

I love the foiled word arts in some of the papers and that’s the first inspiration on this layout.DonnaEspiritu-CliqueKits-April-Jellybean-layout01I didn’t plan to have a monochromatic layout, honestly. I ended up choosing teal/blue with black colors so that’s what I went with.

I fussy cut the words you + me (and later on couldn’t find the “+” cut out so it didn’t make into this layout).

I adhered the floral cut files using gel medium. Then I used watercolors (blue, black) and PITT pencils to color the cut files. I started with the light blue colors first and then mixed the black watercolor later on, creating a grayish blue shade.

I also used watercolors as ink to stamp the word “love”. Scattered it around the layout. The stamp is from Latina Crafter. I scattered the hearts and stars from the foam word stickers by Freckled Fawn. And did the same with the black enamel dots from Freckled Fawn as well.

I have a problem with my printer but good thing I got this 1 photo printed correctly. I didn’t want to just throw the rest away so I used them and layered them like you see here. I also love using layers of messy thread to add a bit of texture

I distressed the edges of the paper in the middle a little bit after cutting about half an inch to make it a little bit smaller. Then I used the blue/green stripe patterned paper as a mat.

That’s all from me today. I hope you liked it!

And see you again tomorrow!

Happy crafting,

Yearbook – Family fun

Blog Image_Yearbook

Hello, it Leeann today and I have a wonderful page to share with you all. I am slowly scrapping our #pearcefamilyadventage from 2014. I am enjoying going through all the photos and remembering our family travels. So many amazing places and time spent together! Some days I wish we were still moving about and exploring this great country. If ever the opportunity comes your way you have to do it!

I created this page using the “La dolce vita” June Kit I love all the tabs and tags in this kits and all the sequins too! I had fun layering them here.  I love using alot more photos on this pages to help tell the story. This is us in Coober Pedy, South Australia. So much to see and do here famous for opals and also mad max movies. Going out to the moonplains and breakaways was so awesome too. I can see how easy it is to get lost out here.  The colour was amazing!

I hope you were inspired to grab out some travels photos and get them all on the page. Created you own background if all the papers weren’t working. This is a great way to get stuck into all the tabs and tags in this kit!

Have fun creating!

Geek Lab – Confetti fun

geeklab

Hello it’s Leeann here today and I have a super fun page to share with you all using the Origins Kit and also the Origins April printables. I wanted to have a wee bit of fun this time round and so I decide that I would use some of my punches that have been sitting around. I have an assortment of shapes and sizes. My idea come from the photo strip of the girls. I decide that it needed to be alot like there personality, a little bit of this and that… crazy/happy!

So lets get started.

First of all I printable this month April origins printables  – three times in three sizes.

CK Geek Lab LP1

 Next I gather an assortment of shaped punches.

Now for the fun part. Punch out as many shapes as you can from the April Origins printables. You can hand cut a few shapes too.

CK Geek Lab LP3

 

Once  you are happy with all your shapes, start by arranging your photos. Next start arranging your punches shapes. Once you are happy with your placement glue in place. Next grab the simple stories clear stickers and adhere in any white spaces.  I added some doodle scribble using a lead pencil. Next I add the enamel hearts from Bella blvd and also a few brads to add that little bit of detail.  To finish this page off I add flicks of black water color and curled the edges of the punched shapes.

Thank you for popping by today and I hope it has inspired you to grab those punches and have a play! Don’t forget those April Origin printables are there too!

Locker Room: Love

Hi Everyone!! It’s Maryám here, and I’m so excited to back to the blog. 🙂 Today I’m going to show a layout that I’ve created using the Limited Edition XOXO kit (you can purchase the kit, here).

cliquekits_xoxokit

The idea for this layout is create a “garland” under the photo, and for this I’m going to use the ephemera pack, stickers, and flairs, of course included in the kit.

mperez_Feb16_lovelayout1

After that, I’m going to put the title with Bella BLVD stickers sheet, and rub-ons from American Crafts, to say “Love friends”.

mperez_Feb16_lovelayout2At the end, I added my journaling, some pink splatters, and black enamel dots around the garland.

That is! You can see the completed creative process here:

 

Thanks so much for read my post. I hope you like the kit and the layout.

See you!

The first step is,  choose the photos and papers, or others materials to work in this layout.

Yearbook – Hello

blog-image_yearbook

Hello, It’s Leeann with you today, I hope you all are well and have been busy crafting after checking out the cliques blog each day. How amazing are all the inspiring projects that pop up. I hope you are in love with this months kit, I am! So today I am sharing this page with you. Today’s focus was all about scrapping more than one photo. I scrap heaps of one photo pages. But sometimes I have lots of pics from a special event or outing. This page  makes my heart happy as it features my family and my beautiful friends from Western Australia. We recently moved state and I just don’t get to see my best friends that I’ve known for a long time! So this is us hanging out in Melbourne seeing the sights. We all had so much to talk about and the kids loved seeing there old school buddies too!

So because I had lots of photos I wanted to be a little more creative with this one and because I am a circle kind of girl I chose to create a circle grid. Before I added my photos and embellishments  I added a splash of color using my watercolour paints. Waited for them to dry and proceeded to back each circle with pattern papers and other embellishments from the Tapestry kit.

 

CK_yearbook_lpearce_nov10_detailA

 

and here are a few detail shots. You will notice I layered lots of the embellishments and sprinkled the mini hearts like confetti. Added some doodling around each circle for extra detail.

So if this is a design you would like to try, it offers the opportunity to scrap lots of photos and some creative journaling spots.

Can’t wait to see your take on this design.

Happy Recording!
