Happy Holidays!

I hate to say it but Christmas is literally right around the corner! I am almost done my Christmas shopping and everything that I’ve bought so far for Edward is hidden in suit cases in the basement! Go me! So I’m waiting on the last few gifts to arrive by mail… Oh did you think that I was waiting to go out on black Friday to do my shopping? Heck no… not me. Anyways, here’s a little project to help you get your cards completed! I used the Clique Kits holiday card kit. This kit was truly a delight to work with. There’s so much packed into this fabulous kit to help you those holiday cards completed early!

Every year I create my own holiday card using a favorite family photo. Once I create the card on paper, I scan it and order my prints online! Super easy and not that hard on your pocket! My favorite part of the Holiday card kit was the gorgeous “Oh, Deer” paper pad by Fancy Pants. I just love the green, teal and red in the papers. And I especially like the veneer word titles from Creative Embellishments. And if you’re eyeing up that cute little flair sticker with the Christmas tree, it was made exclusively for the holiday kit by Clique Kits. I love me some flair stickers. They are a must for every crafter. I love how this card turned out. The flair sticker and veneer title really helps pull this card together.

Before I leave for today, I am challenging you to create a Christmas card using a family portrait. Have fun and lets get those cards done early!

Clique Cards Holiday Edition: Start With A Sketch

Happy Holidays! This is Tyra and I’m here help you dive right into your Clique Kit Holiday Card Kit! If you have received your holiday kit or follow Clique Kit’s Instagram and Facebook pages lately, you have noticed that the Holiday Card Kit is packed with all sorts of goodness, so much goodness, you may be wondering where to start or how to start creating.

I often have moments like this and I find that I use a few go-to card sketches as my source of inspiration. Sometimes I like the comfort of a sketch that suggests placement of my main card element, sentiment and embellishments.  I usually add my personal touch or alter the sketch to make it my own.  The most important thing to remember is to just start. Enough talking, let’s take a look at what I created:

Here is the sketch, a center design:

And the cards I created:

Here is one more

Again, the sketch just gives me a place to start.  Here is a another go-to sketch that I love to use:

This is the card I created:

And yes, there is one more:

I hope you find these tips useful as you start playing with your kit! I’ll be back later this month to share how I love using cut files with my cards. In the meantime, take care and thanks so much for stopping by the blog!

And now here is a peak into my Clique into the Holidays mini album, my way!  This is just the bare bones start of my December mini album.  I like to get most of my pages cut and put into my album before I start adding much else to it.  I love to stagger the page sizes and shapes throughout. It really make a mini album like this interactive, interesting and sometimes nice and chunky!!
