Rainy Day Fun – GD Lisa Lahiff

2 Comments

Hi!  I am so excited to be here on the Clique Kit Blog!!!  My name is Lisa Lahiff and I will be guest designing for the month of March, thanks to the amazing Clique Kit Team for having me!  When I opened my beautifully wrapped March Kit “Play” I squealed with delight.  This kit is packed with one of my favorite new lines called Little by Little by Shimelle.   When I saw the rain drop patterned paper I instantly knew what photos I had to document first…

The vellum black numbers were perfect for drawing attention to my photos, and to help them stand out more from the busy background I used a white gel pen to add dashed lines outlining each one.

The striped rainbow patterned paper created the perfect lines to help keep my thickers straight.  And the clouds found in the Little by Little Die Cut Shapes package played off of my title too!  With a few sequins I was able to create my own rain fun.

Geek Lab: Enjoy

geeklab

Hi everyone. I have a fun layout to share with you today using the Printables from the January kit. For the past few months, I’ve been printing the printables and cutting them before I dig into my kit so I don’t forget to use them. These printables are great embellishment fillers.  My favorites include the tags and banners.

I didn’t plan on making this layout so busy…It was supposed to be simple, but I wanted to use some of my embellishments in my stash that I haven’t used in a while and once I started adding stuff, I couldn’t stop. I stapled the banners at the top right-side of my photo then added the flair. I plucked one of the heart enamels from the button to add to the center of my flair. The little heart puffy stickers are so cute…  I added them to the center flowers at the top of the layout.

I cut the number two from the Bella Blvd. that came in the December kit to add as an embellishment with the “laugh” word label from the printables. I used scissors to make the label smaller than I cut the little “v” to make it look like a banner.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I inspired you to use those printables that comes with your kit this month!

Yearbook: Trolls

blog-image_yearbook

Hi all. This month, I made it a goal of mine to scrapbook a layout using the printables that came with the December kit. I ALWAYS forget to use these because I forget to print them out and then when I do think about them, my kit is almost gone. So, this month, I printed them off first before I even received the kit.

dsc_4267

Initially, I was going to prep this page for the December kit, but once I started applying the printables and photos, I needed things like washi tape, enamel dots, puffy stickers… all items that I’ve been hoarding from the Clique Kit shop. 🙂 I like being a hoarder of supplies because you never know what you might need until you actually need it. So don’t forget the Clique Kit shop because we have a great variety of products available to be shipped with you kit each month.

I cut the Movie Night Hexagon in half and then moved them around the bottom of the photo collage until I was happy with the placement. I always save my tickets from when I go to the movies. Rather than keeping the tickets in my wallet, I decided to use it on my layout.

I really don’t know what got into me… I just couldn’t stop adding stuff to this layout.  I am just glad that some of this stuff is finally getting used.

Thanks for visiting today. I hope to see lots of projects using the printables from the December kit. Lacey did a fabulous job on them!

June Clique Kit Blog Share

Hi everybody. It’s Nicole here, wishing you a fabulous Wednesday! Welcome to the June Pep Rally. This month, we hope to inspire you with the “La Dolce Vita” kit. I am loving all the Elle’s Studio and Jillibean Soup goodies. What an awesome combination, don’t ya think? I especially love all the embellishments in this kit. YUM.
For our challenge this month, we went with anything goes, but challenged our design team to include journaling on their projects.
The Pep Rally, for those of you who are new to the Clique, is our monthly subscriber and design team blog share typically held the third week of the month and participants earn product credits-yes, free stuff to do what you love-who can beat that? It’s out with the old, in with the new time at Clique Kits when we (hopefully) have all killed our kit from the previous month and have lots to show off, and we start to chat and hype the excitement for the coming month’s kit. In other words, we party! We don’t leave out our guests-there is always a prize for a hopper who comments on each post and likes and shares on social media! Just leave a new comment for each like and share for a separate entry in the random drawing for this month’s prize. One lucky person will win this month’s La Dolce Vita! Get the word out and have your friends join our Pep Rally because they might end up with this gorgeous kit at their doorsteps!
Here’s today’s line up:

Feel free to hop in any order, if you get lost, you can always come back here to find your place. This month, I decided to add a little Shimmerz to my project using a circle stencil. Since I ran out of patterned paper I decided to punch circles from the exclusive cards. Doesn’t this layout look so neat? I love it!

Locker Room – Project Life spread step by step

Hi! It’s Justt here and today I would like to show you my way of creating a Project Life spread with June Kit. I knew from the very beginning it will be veeery colorful! Ok, let’s go. 🙂

DSC_0033

Firt of all, I place the photos on the page protector. I usually put two small photos in the two small pockets and between them there’s a journaling card or two and sometimes a title card if there’s one journaling card.

DSC_0034

Then I try to match cards with small papers – I try to limit colors and this time it will be white, pink, grey and some red.

DSC_0037DSC_0038

Then of course… I change everything (look photo above) 😀 I don’t like having the same colors one under another (as it was above – a gray title card with “love” in the small pocket and a white card with gray stripes in the big pocket under it) so I had to rearrange it somehow. 🙂

DSC_0039

All right, the cards are covered. Now the best part – embellishments!

DSC_0041

Some cut-outs and a roller stamp! I love it. 🙂

DSC_0042DSC_0045

And this is how the whole page looks like. 🙂 It’s quite messy I must admit, but I really like it! Hope you like it too, tell me in comments what you think!

Little moments

geeklab

Hello everyone!

Happy Saturday to you all! I have another page to share today, something simpler than what I usually create 😀

I was inspired by this patterned paper in the kit. I saw in my mind lots of “framed” photos. You know, like a wall of pictures of sort. And I envisioned the photos in black and white to make them stand out. So this is what I came up with.

Donna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-05I used the negative of the butterfly cut files as stencil. Then after it has dried, I used my PITT pencils and Gelatos to color them

Donna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-05a

I drew the strings using a waterproof black pen… they look like strings, right? hehe! 😀
(oohhh look at those cheeky cheeks!!! I miss this stage..sigh… ).

I used my butterfly border puncher…to add more butterflies, of course.

Donna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-05bDoodled little dots to accentuate the freehand cut scalloped borders

That’s it for me today, simplest page I made so far using this month’s kit “La Dolce Vita”

Donna here with another page using the June Kit “La Dolce Vita” featuring Elle’s Studio Little moments

CK_Jun16-kit4For my page, I used one of the awesome exclusive cut files Just Nick Studio created for this month’s kit.

Donna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-04I just simply love that the colors and patterns all mesh together so beautifully.

I thought of mixing some black and white elements so I cut out some of the word arts from one of the patterned papers.Donna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-04aI just scattered the embellishments around the photoDonna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-04bwrote a little bit of journaling using a waterproof black penDonna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-04cHere is a video tutorial I prepared so you can watch how I created this layout

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!

“la dolce vita”

GeekLab: a trip to remember

Hello all! It’s Justt here 🙂 Those of you who are subscribers of Clique Kits kits have probably already seen wonderful printables from June “La Dolce Vita” kit! They’re as pretty as all Elle’s Studio cut outs and die-cuts! So here you’ve got a layout (in rather unusual size for me! I was inspired by our wonderful DT girls 😀 ) with those pretty printables.

DSC_4912

Even though this size is quite small for me (yeah, it’s really hard when you make only 30×30 layouts!) but I really loved making it!

DSC_4914

What’s more, those printables perfectly fit the whole kit. Ahhh, and those acrylic words! ♥

DSC_4916

I’m a girl who looooves cut some small pieces from papers etc. This butterfly had been also cut out from the bigger printable 🙂

DSC_4917

The photo was taken this weekend when we had something like a really, reaaaally small CHA in Poland 😀 it was super fun!

I hope you like it! I used June Kit

Hugs!

Love of my life

blog-image_locker-room

Hello! Donna here to share a page I created using the June Kit “La Dolce Vita” featuring Elle’s Studio Little Moments.

CK_Jun16-kit4

This kit is super beautiful! I was inspired by the butterflies and soft pastel colors in this kit. I played around that inspiration and this is the result.

Donna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-03

Gelatos and watercolors are my favorite ingredients to my pages/projects lately, so you will see a lot of those to more projects. For this page, I created a subtle colorful background. And added little bits of texture around the page.

Donna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-03b

Here are more detailed shots. The heart shape was a last minute addition. I was looking at the page and thought it still need something. I used a yellow PITT pencil to lightly draw the heart shape.

Donna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-03c

Then I used a black waterproof pen to write along the lines of the heart shape, “Love of my life”.Donna-Espiritu---La-Dolce-Vita-June-2016---Elle's-Studio---layout-03d

And here is the process video for this layout so you can see how I created it.
Enjoy watching!
