Happy 2015 everyone!  I’m very excited to share a post on the CK blog today! But first, a big THANK YOU to everyone who ordered our Limited Edition Kit, We Go Together!  We have officially SOLD OUT!  If you weren’t one of the lucky ones who ordered their kit, we have hope!! We do have a very limited amount of products from the kit on sale now in the Clique Kits Store HERE!!  You can literally build your own personal kit, similar to We Go Together right now.

As I’m sure you can tell with all of our Limited Edition Clique Kits, we have been crazy busy behind the scenes preparing a fabulous 2015, for you!   We hope you can feel our excitement because we are just bursting at the seams these days!!  Whew!

Today I’m very happy to be sharing a layout based off a fun sketch I found at the My Scraps & More Sketch Blog.  Here’s the great sketch I worked from.  You can interpret this sketch in so many ways, which is way I loved it.  You can stay very true to the sketch and use smaller photos, maybe 2″x3″ or 4″x5″ or you could use 4″x6″ or even 5″x7″!

As I’m sure you can also see in this sketch, there are some ink splatters and several layers which I just love!  Here we go, my first layout on the Clique Kits blog with the fabulous Tailor Made, featuring Amy Tangerine~Stitched.  I played up those fun layers and added two different kinds of sequins.  I did a little experiment with attaching my sequins this time.  I used my Aileen’s Tacky Glue to attach the 5mm flat silver sequins and small glue dots to attach the aqua ones.  I wanted to see which one was stronger in the end when putting layout to the test in our family album. My scrapbooks are right in our living room and often grabbed of the shelves by our younger girls, ages 3 to 7.  So, we’ll see how these adhesives hold up to them turning the pages about 80 times!!

Study Hall: Playing with Types






I love fonts. I love how each font capture a different mood, a different energy. With word collages being real popular these days, I was inspired to create one about my boy’s love for fruits:

5 Servings, @Colortypes Sophie @ Cliquekits, #cliquekits #scrapbooking #DIY #CKenchantedmeadow


To add a personal touch to the layout, I hand cut the words “EAT” and “HEALTHY” and included my handwriting in some parts of the layout. The ledger puffy stickers from Evalicious were an absolute complement to this college, especially since it the light blue grid design on the fonts make the fonts really pop against the white background.

5 Servings Detail 1

My son was roped in to help complete this layout too. During one of our painting sessions, I got him to do a hand print for me and I like how it provides a visual representation for the no. 5 on this layout.

When creating the “everyday section”, I was delighted that the exact word came as a transparency in my kit. I also decided that those journaling cards from the Echo Park Creative Agenda cut apart paper were too cute not to be included here.

5 Servings Detail 2

After I put all the different font types together, I had fun embellishing with all the amazing ticks and reminders stickers in the kit. And yes, strange but true, the little one actually enjoys eating celery!

And there you have it – a daily health reminder about the importance of eating your fruit and veges! I hope you have fun putting together a college of font types too!



Watt’s Up?

Blog 4


Hello everyone, Marcia here today with some more cards to share with you that I created with the December kit Enchanted Meadow. This week I focused on the light bulb icons and brainstormed card sentiments. Here is what I came up with …

Watt’s Up?
Say Watt?
I Love You a Whole Watt
Be Merry, Be Bright
You’re Brilliant
You Light Up My Life
You Brighten My Day
Your Future is Bright
I Got an Idea… Let’s Be Together.

By layering the project life cards with each other, or with paper scraps I created these. This one will be great as a graduation card …

This one will be perfect to send to one of my kids in college with a care package.

One for my hubby…Using the clip at the top of the card,  I can attach movie tickets or a gift card to a favorite restaurant inside so we can have a date night!

I saved my favorite for last, which would be perfect for any of the guys in my life…



And I still have more light bulbs in my kit to play with! That washi tape I used on my cards is available in the Clique Store by the way.

Share your light bulb sentiments because I would love to hear them.



Create Happiness

Hi everyone, it’s Danielle here with you today sharing another layout with the December Enchanted Meadow kit.

I love the happy bright colors in this kit, so I wanted to work with pictures that make me happy. Having my little niece over always makes me happy anyway, but I might love it even more that we share the love for crafting. Already from the time she was about 2 years old I could have her sitting with me at the table and she could watch me scrapbooking for an hour or two. By the time she was 3 years old I decided to let her join in the fun and let her make her own Disney scrapbook. Every time she comes over, she asks right away if she can work on her book. Two weeks ago I took her downtown and asked her if she wanted to have lunch at McDonalds. Her answer: can’t we just have a sandwich at your house, so I can quickly start working on my scrapbook? What kid would ever say that? She’s a scrapbooker at heart and I love it!

I used the Echo Park papers and embellishments from the Enchanted Meadow kit and added some Evalicious puffy stickers and flair and Basic Grey enamel dots from the Clique Kits store. The background paper is from My Mind’s Eye and came with the kit as well. I love how the black and white pattern makes the other colors pop off the page. The paper also has some black splatters in it and I added a few pink splatters to that.

Sparkle and Shine – Using the stamp set




Hello Clique Kits friends! It’s Marcia here today. I have some cards to share that I created with the Sweet Stamp Shop Sparkle and Shine stamp set that was included in the kit. Since this kit is full of diamond stamps, diamond paper, acrylic diamonds, and even a clique kit exclusive diamond digital cut file, I wanted to brainstorm card ideas (other than wedding which was the first thing that popped into my head). Here are some sentiments I came up with …

“You’re a Gem”

“Congrats on the Shiny New Bling”

“I Think You’re Brilliant”

“You Sparkle & Shine”

“You Rock”

“Rock On”

and my cards using some of these sentiments and the stamps…


On this card I printed the sentiment using my computer and  Microsoft Word software. The font is Lavanderia (one of my favorites) which you can download for free. You can find it here … is another great source for fonts and explains how to install your new font for different operating systems.


and one more…


Can you think of other diamond sentiments? I would love to hear them!



Team Dave



Hello Clique Kits friends! It’s Marcia here today. I wanted to give you some insight into what inspired me for my latest layout. It was this 4×6 journal card from the Echo Park Creative Agenda collection. It reminded me of the musical Rent and that made me think of my brother-in-law Dave who is battling cancer. When you are in a battle for your life, you realize just how precious time is as well as those people we love to spend that time with.


Last Spring, my daughter and I participated in the Minneapolis Bladder Cancer Walk with Dave and lots of friends and family. So I dug out the few pictures I had from the event. Then I looked for a sketch that would work with my photos and journal cards. I found this one at Stuck?! Sketches.

december 1 copy

I don’t always use a sketch, but find they are helpful when you need inspiration. Working with multiple photos in a grid design is not typical for me. Every once in a while its good to try something different though. My next step is deciding on what papers and embellishments to use.


But I wanted the emphasis still to be that journal card, so I used my Silhouette to cut the words out of my background paper. It makes a bold statement. Here is my finished layout…


Enchanted Meadow December Clique Kit.

The Good Morning sun was fussy cut from another journal card. Don’t be afraid to cut into your journal cards like this. One of the add-ons for the kit were these fabulous paper clips from Freckled Fawn and I cannot get enough of them.


I spritzed some Heidi Swapp color shine in tinsel on my camera ephemera and layered some chipboard stickers on top. Using foam adhesive adds dimension, making the layers pop.


I used my computer to add my journaling as I don’t especially like my own handwriting.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope I have inspired you today.


Multiple sized photos


Hi everyone! I’m back again today with a quick and easy tutorial on how to print multiple sized photos for your layouts. Personally, I do not have a printing program to do this so I use Ipiccy. Ipiccy is a free photo software and I use it often to edit my photos. I also use this program to create a collage using my favorite photos so that I can cut the different sized photos out to use on my layout! This programs saves me a great deal of time, ink, money and photo paper! It’s awesome.

Simply go to and click on create collage. Then upload your photos and move them around to your liking, print it and cut the photos out!


Before printing the photo, be sure to select “fit picture to frame” so that your photo collage does not get chopped off at the edges.


And here is my layout. I love the papers in the Enchanted Meadows kit. I can’t get enough of it. There’s so many possibilities with all the patterned paper in this fabulous kit!
