We currently have the Autumn Day collection in the Clique Kits shop and once it arrived I could not wait to dive in and start creating!  Fall is my favorite time of the year and I love the colors, images and patterns in this collection!  I took a photo last fall when the leaves were just starting to fall!  I was at the park scouting out areas to shoot some upcoming family photos and feeling very grateful and blessed.  I wanted to capture a photo of my feet on the ground to remember this moment in time.


The paper I pulled for my background was perfect to add some watercolors in matching colors!  Of coarse I used the packaging technique and also added some ink spatters!

Adding lots of layers is what I love so the Autumn Day 6×6 paper pad was perfect for this!  I also pulled in some items from previous add ons like the wood veneer leaves, gold enamel dots and hearts!


I love the element sticker and alpha sheet that you can pick up in the Clique Kits shop!  The alpha sheet includes 3 different size alphas in different colors and fonts!


This collection has been selling very well in the shop and I can not wait to see what everyone creates with it!  I think some great fall cards are next on my to do list with this collection!  Now as of right now we do not have the Dear Santa collection in the shop….but stay tuned because you may be seeing it very soon in something special;)  Head on over to the shop and check out the full collection of Autumn Day and please make sure to check them out on Facebook!  I hope you all enjoyed my layout today and enjoy the rest of your day!

Eli and Izzy-Best Freinds


Hey everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!  Today I have a layout to share with you using the September 2015 kit Capture!  This kit features the Hello Lovely collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.  I love the colors in this kit and even if there seem to be a lot of pink and floral in this kit please do not think you can not pull off some great “boy” layouts.  I thought this kit would be perfect to document some photos I have of my youngest son Eli and our boxer Izzy.  We have only had Izzy for a couple months but she has fit into our family so well!  Eli and Izzy have become the best of friends and are always together!  Check out the story of how we got Izzy HERE!  Izzy loves her Eli and Eli loves his Izzy!  Every morning when Eli wakes up she gets right up with him and gives him a lot of kisses!  It amazes me the bond that the two of them have after only 2 months!  I want Eli to always remember his Izzy girl so all these layouts of the two of them will go into a book just for him!  The layout I am sharing today is of the two of them looking out our front  window something they do often!


I wanted to add a little girly touch to the layout since Izzy is a female boxer so I added a small touch of the floral black and white paper in the kit and this fabulous bit of black crepe paper that also comes in the kit!  I ruffled it up and stitched it to my layers with some gold thread!  I love the texture and interest in adds to my layout!  I love crepe paper and it is going to be fun to use up what I have left with my next layouts!

IMG_1303I did some stamping with the September Add on stamp from Precious Remembrance.  I am so in love with this stamp set and I think it goes perfect with this kit!  If you did not pick this one up yet you must add it to your cart!!



I finished off my layout with some black ink splatters and adding a few elements from the Elle’s Studio products that are also available in the shop!


Remember that subscribers can have add on products shipped for free with their kits each month!  If you have yet to check out all the September Adds or New Products available in the shop now is the time to do it!  Products are limited so once they are gone they are gone for good.  I hope you enjoyed my layout today and it feels really good to be creating again!  I love to scrap and finding time to create has been a struggle for me lately!  You all have been so inspiring in the Clique Kits Facebook group and I thank you all for sharing your projects and inspiration in the group!  It has really helped me get my grove back!
