Locker Room with Evi // Happy Home

Hello Scrappy Peeps! And a Happy 4th of July!! Its Evi here for Locker Room Tuesday.  For todays post I am playing with the wonderful May kit which is still available for your scrapping pleasure in the Clique Kit store.  This kit featured the Pink Fresh Studio Dream On collection with these soft pastel color range.  I wanted to challenge myself to use a tool I rarely grab for, my punches.

I had parts of this kit left since I did use most of it last month.  I have circle punches in a variety of sizes in my stash, so I punched out 2″ , 1.5″ and 1″ circles and rings with all the patterned paper I had left over.

I used my Scotch Tachy glue to adhere all these circles in a diagonal arrangement for my layout.

I used the puffy stickers and alphas in the kit for my title and a few more bits around the photo of my family to finish off the layout.  Thank you for joining me and if you did not get this kit they are still available in the shop.

I have a process video below to watch this layout unfold.

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!

Geek Lab: Punch it out!

Hey everyone and happy Thursday!  I hope you all had a chance to check out the June Instagram Share that started yesterday!  We have enjoyed seeing all the beautiful projects that you are sharing with your kits!  We do still have a couple kits left in the shop along with some of our new Travelers Notebook kits!  You can check them out HERE in the shop!

Today I am working with the May 2017 kit and have a quick and easy layout to share with you!  I am a little behind in using up my kits so before I dig into June I want to kill my May kit!

I also pulled out my May travelers notebook kit that goes perfectly with the main kit!

I am loving circles on layouts so I pulled out my punches and went to work punching our the pretty papers in the May kit!

In the end I only used one size punch and placed them on a 8.5×11 piece of white cardstock!  I love the blue in this kit and since I do have 4 boys it is just perfect for some of their photos!  I printed my photo in black and white and added a few layers behind it!  The photo is of our youngest son combing his brothers hair with a DINGLEHOPPER(fork)!  He had recently just watched The Little Mermaid and was doing everyone’s hair with his new dinglehopper!  To cute not to photograph and document!

Once I had all my circles placed on my paper I added my photo and a square that I cut out from one of the papers that says…Just Being me is Fun!  I pulled out the word stickers in the Travelers Notebook kit and added a couple under my photo.  The puffy stickers in the May kit are perfect little embellishments and I added some to the circles on my page!  I just love all the little bits and pieces in each kit!

Using punches is a good way to use up smaller pieces of paper you have left over in a kit!  Makes for a quick, easy and fun layout!  Here is a look at my final layout using the May 2017 kit!

I challenge you to pull out your punches and create a layout or a card!  Any kind of punch it does not have to be circles!  Post your projects in The Clique Facebook group , our Facebook Page or the Clique Kits Instagram with the hashtag #CKPUNCHITOUT  (a clique kit is not required to join in on the fun)  I think our punches get over looked sometimes and they are a great tool to use!

The Clique Kits May 2017 kit is available in the shop now and you can grab the May Travelers Notebook as well!

Art Studio: Favorite

 

Hello  everybody! I am sharing my very first layout using the July Clique Kit. I love the pretty papers and embellishments in this kit. And I really like the Pretty Little Studio paper, flair and transparency. Fun kit! The colors make me so happy.

I tried to keep this layout simple by adding some yellow and blue Shimmerz mists in the background. I added a 1/4″ border around the edge of the white cardstock using a ruler and a black pen. And because I couldn’t get enough of the pretty transparency, I cut the “always” image out using scissors and added a puffy sticker on top of the transparency and adhered it to the bottom of the layout.

I cut the flowers from the Pretty Little Studio cut-apart paper and used a foam square to make the middle of the flower pop off the page. The leaves are actually Altenew stamps!

 

I used the transparency to cover one of the die cut tags above the photos. And I tucked strips of paper “branding strips” slightly behind the photos.

We hope you love this month’s kit as much as we do! Thanks for visiting today.

Clique Agenda: June 2017 Monthly Spread

Hello, CK friends!

Donna here sharing my last post for this month of June using the Aquarelle kit.

ck-jun17-mainkit-6_1_orig

as well as some of the exclusive printables in the kit

ck-jun17-cliqueprints-web3_3_orig

First, let me show you one of the tricks I learned along the way. I’m sure I am did not come up with this original idea but I will share it anyway. I use a template as you see in the image, to cut the tiny little squares in my monthly spread.

It’s not really perfect but the difference is not that noticeable, so it’ll do. First, I measured one of the squares and used this tag (it’s quite sturdy so it can be used over and over again) as a template.

Use a pencil (so you can erase afterward) and trace around the area you want to cut. I keep this template nearby so it’s ready when I need it.

Here is how I decorated my monthly spread for June using the kit. (Note: stamp used from my stash and not included in the kit).

Geek Lab: Me

Hi everybody. Nicole here with a layout I created using goodies from the shop! If you haven’t been to the shop, you might want to take a look. We have some fabulous product marked down! And yes, everything used on this layout is available in the shop, but hurry because they might not be available for long.

For this layout, I decided to use the Pink Paislee “Cest La Vie” paper pack, acetate alphas, stickers and Jillibean Soup’s vellum foil tag.

 

I really like the patterns in the acetate paper that comes in the paper back so I decided to use the vellum tag to cut part of the patterned from the acetate paper to layer on the tag. I must say, it looks so pretty!

I cut several pieces of patterns, sentiments, shapes from the cut-apart paper and acetate to use as die cuts for this layout since I did not have any on hand.

I love patterned paper because the possibilities are endless. You can mix patterns to create a fun background for your layout, cut the paper into a patterned using a Silhouette or cut bits and pieces/sentiments from the patterns to use as die cuts for your layout.

 

Before adhering the acetate embellishments to your layout,, make sure you peel the plastic film off… Let me just say, I did not…

Thanks for visiting today. Be sure to check out the shop today for some great deals!
