Hello, Clique friends! I’m so excited to be back today to share a new layout created with the gorgeous May Sorbet kit. I know I always describe the kits as gorgeous, but they truly are. From the featured collections to the exclusives, everything is so inspiring and fun.
One of the things I have recently re-discovered is stamping. I used to stamp on my layouts and cards all the time. Then I stopped for a while, trying new techniques and such. I had forgotten how fun and versatile stamps are. For my layout today I was inspired by the Delight paper in the Pink Fresh Studio Dream On collection. All those little circles in different colors gave me the idea for my background.
I used an Altenew stamp set from my stash, but the same result can be achieved with any other stamp or die cut shape. There is a lot to choose from in the Clique store 😉 I tried to use colors that coordinated well with the collection.
To repeat the motif across the page, I used a 3” circle punch to cut my pictures, which I adhered down using a piece of foam sheet.
Next, embellishments. I knew I wanted to keep the layout light and airy and only scatter little die cuts and puffy stickers here and there for extra color.
The sequin mix that comes as an add-on item this month is so pretty! Such a beautiful mix of colors and shapes!
The butterfly shaped sequins are also from the Clique store. I absolutely love them!
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you felt inspired to create your own background with stamps. Check out the Clique Kits store for all your crafty needs and to grab the May Sorbet kit and add-ons.
Until next time.
Hello, Clique friends! I’m back today with a layout featuring the gorgeous May Sorbet Kit. The colors in this kit are absolutely amazing and the exclusives coordinate beautifully with it.
The main inspiration for this layout came from one of the background cut files that will be available in the Clique digital store.I initially intended to use the cut file as it is, but then decided to scatter the different size stars around my pictures and layer them to crate a lot of dimension and texture.
Since the patterned paper I chose as my background is very similar in color to the one I used for the stars, I decided to just use pink acrylic paint to create some contrast. I still wanted my layout to have a soft look, so the light colored paint worked perfectly for it.
Some of the stars are cut out of vellum. I love the different texture it adds.
Once all the stars were positioned as I liked them around my pictures, I started embellishing. I tend to go for a tone-on-tone look most of the times to make the colors stand out more.
For my title, I used another exclusive cut file that will be available with the May Sorbet kit.The Pink Fresh Studio Reverie paper with its gorgeous blue adds the right pop of color the layout needed.
I hope you felt inspired today. If you are not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are beautiful. The exclusives are always so unique! You will not regret it! Visit the Clique Kits store for details 🙂

I was so inspired by all the goodies in this month’s kit that I decided to make my own dashboard for March.
I knew I wanted to use the Lil’ Bit Lovely patterned paper. I thought the chevron pattern would be cute to create a little pocket. As my base, I used a piece of white cardstock, which I trimmed to fit my Mini Happy Planner (it measures approximately 4.75” x 7”). I then did the same thing with the patterned paper. Since I wanted to cut the chevron paper in half, I first punched holes in it. That gave me an idea of where to cut.
I used some foam dots to give dimension to the beautiful floral piece included in the ephemera pack, and added one of Dr. Seuss’s quotes that I have always loved as my inspiration for the month. I had a hard time choosing the bits and pieces to go in the pocket. They are all so fun!
This is my monthly spread for March.
I like to keep it simple and usually only jot down a few things. The weekly spreads are much busier.
How lovely are these embellishments included in the kit? Don’t forget you can also download the exclusive printables that coordinate perfectly with the main kit.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
Hello, Clique friends! Enza here with a new layout created with the gorgeous February Bee You kit. I absolutely love the Hazelwood collection featured in the kit. Colors and patterns are very versatile and fun.
For this layout I wanted to focus on the story, on my girls, on their different personalities and similarities. I wanted my page to be soft, very feminine and sweet. I used the Lazy Daisy patterned paper as my background. The mint green color is delicate and dreamy.
The whole layout was actually built around the pretty journaling card from the cut apart sheet. It kind of determined the tone of the whole page. I started building my layers with two white doilies disposed in a diagonal. Then, I used different patterned papers to back my pictures and created more dimension by adding foam tape underneath them. The 3×4 card with the purple camera and the Remember This sentiment added the perfect pop of color.
I also fussy cut the beautiful white flowers from the Hazel Gingham patterned paper and disposed them here and there around the pictures. I had to have at least one butterfly on my layout, of course! I am totally in love with them!
A few more stickers and embellishments, as well as two strips of patterned papers along the left side of the page, finished the layout.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
Hello, Clique friends. Enza back today to share a new layout featuring the gorgeous Hey, Sugar January kit.
I’m excited to show you how I put together my top ten moments of 2016. By looking at my layouts, you have probably noticed I’m not a multi-photo scrapbooker. One or two pictures at the most, unless it is a series of pictures, is way enough for me. To be honest, I struggled a little bit with this one, but I love a good challenge and am very happy with the result.
The past year was a very good year, both personally and professionally. We had our rough times, like anybody else, but I feel blessed for everything life has brought us.
Here is the layout:
I used a cut file I have had in my stash for a long time and thought it was perfect to document all the sweet moments we experienced. Film strips are a lot of fun to use. They remind me of the good old times. They remind me of my childhood. Such a nostalgic feeling! I used the Simple Stories Happy Together patterned paper to cut the circle and the Crate Paper My Love one to back it.
I also passed some thread through the holes of the circle to add more texture to the page.
The embellishments in this month’s kit are so adorable. The wooden buttons and the gold tiny hearts are just perfect. I used some of the exclusive printables to create several layers behind my flowers and give more dimension to the clusters.
As always, black splatters and enamel dots finished the layout.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my process and felt inspired to use your January kit to document your top moments of 2016. I can’t say enough how beautiful these kits are. So many goodies to work with. Exclusive products, add-ons, digital elements and cut files.
Until next time. Have a great day!
Hello everyone! I’m back today to share a new layout featuring the gorgeous Hey, Sugar January kit. I love everything pink, so you can imagine how happy I was when I received my awesome box of goodies.
I always try to include different elements on my projects, so to achieve as much texture and dimension as possible. The idea for this layout came from one of the fun cut files available with the January kit.
The cut file on its own is very versatile. So many possibilities! You can use it as it is on top of some patterned paper or vellum, you can use different patterned papers to back each section, you can even cut out the individual elements to create your own background.
The first thing I did was use the Crate Paper Heart You Gold foil heart vellum to back some of the sections and the Crate Paper Lovely patterned paper to back others. I also included some stitching to add an extra element of interest.
Once my cut file was ready, I prepared the background paper that I wanted to use as my base. The packaging technique is the simplest way you can add some mixed media to your pages. I used pink and gold mist to match the colors in the kit.
Next, I worked on my layers.
I used both side of the Happy Hearts patterned paper to back my picture. The bottom layer is just some mint tissue paper I had in my stash. I think it makes the photo stand out more. The fussy cut flowers come from the Crate Paper Adore You patterned paper, while the black enamel hearts are from Bella Blvd. I love the contrast between all the pink and the black accents on the page.
The embellishments included in the kit are so cute! I also love the Fancy Pants Joy Parade Sentiments Puffy Stickers. They are perfect for any type of project.
That is it, my friends! I hope you enjoyed reading about my process and feel inspired to use the January cut file to add some fun elements to your layouts.
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great day!
