Yearbook – Let’s Go

Hello! It’s Réka and today I’m sharing my latest layout with you from my yearbook, using the ’Sundance’ Traveler’s Notebook Kit. One of my favorite part of the kit is the embellisment which I really love using.

For my layout I have printed my photo in A4 size on the white cardstock which became the base of it.

I have created one vertical cluster with some embellishments from the top to the bottom, at middle part of my layout. I have used the Let’ s go and hearts die cuts from the Pretty Little Studios: Wish You Were Here collection and some stickers, also  from the same collection which came with the kit. The flowers, which were fussy cut out of one PL card from the main September’s printables also went on my layout. The Journey word was cut the stars green paper from the Pretty Little Studios: Wish You Were Here 4×6 Paper Pack with my cameo.

Finally, I have made a little pocket on the back side of the page and I have put in one tag from the Pretty Little Studio Baggage Claim Shipping Tags package and I can write this day’s story here.

Art Studio – Coffee Cup

ck-art-studio-header

Hello! It’s Réka and today I am sharing with you a very cute, very nice and very lovely way to make your own embelisment for your layout or any other projects and we will be using the gorgeous „Sundance” Traveler’s Notebook Kit.

The first thing you have to know about me that I love coffee latte but I have never taken a picture of it and I have never documented it. But last week I gave up them and I did the previous two things and of course my own hand-made embelisment.

Now let’s see the hand-made embelisment which is a coffee cup. I have choosen the coffee PL card from the February 2017 printables to do this.

I have edited this illustration in the Microsoft Word program and I have printed it twice. Because for firts one I have used white cardstock which became the base of my layout and the other one has been printed  on the copy paper which was the samplet for the coffee cup embelishment.

I have cut the cup out of the copy paper, after that I cut off the different parts and I have chosen the papers from the Pretty Little Studios: Wish You Were Here 4×6 paper pack collection for them and drawn around it and cut it out of and adhered them onto one pieces of white cardstock which cut it around as the shape of the cup. The last steps were to embroider it and add the alphabetic stickers from the previous kits.

The embelisment was done and I put it onto the page and I really love the result.

Finally I have decorated the layout. I have fussy cut flowers out of the flower paper from Pretty Little Studios: Wish You Were Here 4×6 Paper Pack and the hearts were used to create a clusters on the top and the bottom part of the page to make balance. The hello word washi tape was the final touch to complete my layout.

I really love this layout and the layout’s message.

Field Notes | My Personal Journal

CK- Field Notes -traveler notes - header

 

Hello crafty friends!!

Nathalie here with  some new entries on my personal journal -my TN- inspired by the beautiful Aquarelle kits (main and TN).   This month’s TN kit features the beautiful “Wildflower” collection from Kaisercraft, as well as plenty of embellishments, and exclusive printables that make memory keeping so easy and pleasurable.

 

Aquarelle TN

 

Since the weather is finally changing here in Toronto, I am taking advantage of long doggie walks around the Humber River path behind my house.  The papers in the Aquarelle TN kit were perfect to document the beauty of Spring in the city.  Here is a small video on how this page came together:

 

 

It took less than 10 minutes to put this page together.   I picked one of the papers in the kit, and used both sides to cover both pages of the TN ( each page features a side of the paper).

I picked my 3 favorite pictures of the walk, and printed them in a film strip form using Lightroom.  This was then glued to one of the pages of the TN -i chose the one with a less busy pattern on it-.   Pieces from the Aquarelle TN Kit’s die cuts and exclusives were used to decorate the page

The exclusive printables in this month’s Aquarelle TN kit  are perfect to add small details around the page.  In this particular case,  one of the cards houses all the details of my walk around the river path.  Here is the final spread:

The color combination of the papers in the Aquarelle TN Kit was perfect to document all this Spring memories, and it took less than 10 minutes to complete the spread.  It is that easy to work with this kit.

 

If you are a subscriber to both  Main and TN kits, then this month’s pizza box  is going to be a dream for all memory keepers. Since you can easily incorporate bits and pieces from both kits in your projects.    Here is an example of how I combined pieces of both kits to complete the spread of our favorite Mother’s Day portrait, just sit down, and enjoy the video:

 

 

 

We love this picture, and i  wanted it to be prominent on my memory keeping system, so I chose to enlarge the image to fit the entire TN spread.    First i cut the picture in half so that i can easily glue to the TN.

Before gluing the right side of the picture, a small pocket was created behind the picture, so that it can hold a tag  (from the Aquarelle main kit exclusive printables) with all the journal lines about this memory.

To complete embellishing this page, one of the fabric tags, included in the Aquarelle main kit, along with a die cut from the TN kit were glued to the top corner of the left side of the page.  The arrow clip was then used to hold these pieces together,  and a small asterisk from the main kit Alphas complete this cluster.

Finally one of the labels from the Aquarelle TN kit’s exclusive printables was used to add the date and place of the picture.  The copper Pinkfresh Studio alphas was then used to create the title of this page.  Here is the complete spread:

This is by far one of my favorite spreads of the past 2 weeks in my spread.  The texture from the different embellishments from both Aquarelle kits just adds the perfect touches to the picture.  If you haven’t checked the kits, there are still a few available at the Clique store, and you better rush to pick yours.

Remember i am a comment away if you have any questions on how these came together.

 

Thanks for stopping by!
