Mixed Media Monday On Youtube: Playing along with the April Challenge

Aloha My Scrappy Friends!! It’s Hannah with you today. I am using the April “Jelly Bean” Kit to make this Pocket Page Spread today.


This pocket Page Spread I made for the April Challenge using Latina Crafter Stamps. I had a small almost 3X4 size alpha stamp. It is the perfect size for Pocket Page cards or smaller titles. From the minute I saw the stamp I know this was how I would use it. Let me tell you, it was fun, I had a hard time not using this stamp on every card in my spread.

CK Challenge PL

For my pocket page spread, I am doing it monthly. This means for me, I just think about filling pockets. I don’t worry about having two protectors per week. This means that some protectors have two or three days and some have more. This all depends on what is going on in my week. This time period I am documenting is March 1 and 2nd 2017. I am using Design A and then I add a 6X12 protector to go with the one side of the Design A. There was a lot going on at the beginning of the month and I also like to make sure I have enough journaling for my pictures.

I also like to really pretty cards in my pockets especially when I use a kit on my spreads. Using a kit helps keep my selections limited which I really need. I will way overdo it. This year I am really working on keeping it simple to make sure I focus on the stories and photos that happen throughout the month.

Even though I am using a kit, I still love to infuse me into the kit I am using. This April “Jelly Bean” Kit is so colorful it really inspired me to get creative. Mixed Media allows me to play and add to my kits and infuse me into my spreads. The amazing thing is you don’t have to do much with your mixed media to make it special to you.

I started off by printing off the exclusive printables from the April Kit. These printables are designed and coordinate perfectly with each kit.  I used this as my starting off point and what also inspired me.

I used white cardstock, cut into 3X4 size cards. I decided not to use Gesso to prime my cards, I knew I would try to stamp as well, I wanted my drying time to be shorter. I also wasn’t sure how this stamp would stamp on gesso, would it smudge? I didn’t want to take that chance. I knew I was going to keep my cards simple too. This often helps me decide whether priming the cards is necessary.

I chose to use watercolors. On one card I just spread the top with an orange color. I added small tiny flowers on both ends of the orange paint. These flowers were similar to the ones in the collection. When paint dried I used a black dye ink and stamped the word Joy in the middle.


I cut the card down and backed it on the Bella Blvd Daily Details Paper. With my journaling, a roller date stamped on and a puffy sticker, this card is so cute and matches my spread.

I also mixed the exclusive designed pocket page cards in my spread as well. I loved this card with the hearts at the top.  It had the right amount of space to journal about the Blog Hop we had on March 1st.  I added some Freckled Fawn Enamel Dots next to the hearts for a little extra something and left the card alone.


I have found with my pocket pages less is more.

For my other mixed media card I added half circles with watercolor on the bottom half of the card. I used the exclusive printable as inspiration. There was a similar card but I wanted to change up the colors and make them match more of what I had used. This is the cool thing about mixed media. You can tweak and alter your kit and make it work for you.


I Used Joy again with my Latina Crafter Stamp. I stamped once in full ink and then continue stamping until the ink was all gone. This ombre look looks really cool on the different color paint.

After I finished the card I outlined it with my black pen and added this card with an image of a text message I had with a friend. This is a fun way to add conversations and interactions with family and friends without having a major picture.


Throughout my spread I added lots of stamped words with my new Latina Crafter Stamp.  Seriously it was so much fun.  Added with this Freckled Fawn Foam word and some exclusive printables my coffee photo is really fun. It makes a simple photo and gives it some piazza.


I also used the Stamp on my Photo that I had a longer story/journaling on in my pocket page spread. This is why I used a 6X12 protector. It took a bit to figure out the arrangement on the page but it was fun designing on a different size layout. I printed my journaling from my laptop in a funky typewriter font. this allowed me to add more journaling than I could write out. I also was wanting to use journaling I had right from my FB acct, which is a simple copy and paste for journaling. I had already wrote the words earlier, sometimes there really is no need to re write the journaling.


I keep the 6X12 layout simple, with some epoxy sticker add ons and some printables.

So Many Colors to Choose


Hi, everyone. It’s Aliza here again, sharing a layout with the gorgeous Rio kit. In the first layout that I shared, I picked out the various the black, white,  and pink patterned paper and elements from the kit.  I threw in some specks of gold, too. This time, however, I focused on the bright blues, greens, and orange elements. (Of course, I always like to throw in a bit of black and white.)


While I used small bits of paper, the majority of this layout is made by layering up the Clique Kits exclusive journaling cards and printables. This layout came together super fast, since all the colors coordinated perfectly.

I would also love to add that this kit would be entirely worth it, just for those Fancy Pants Designs alphas! The color, the whimsical font, and the puffy texture are  are simply wonderful.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone! Elisabetta here to show you another layout created with the May kit!


I found an old Polaroid at home back in January and I’m OBSESSED with it! I only took a few pictures so far and I love the vintage look that they have. as I mentioned some posts ago, I spent Easter holidays with my mom at our beach house and, even if it was very very cold, we still decided to take some walks by the seaside. this Polaroid was taken there; I love it! 😀


this 4×6 exclusive card was perfect for my picture (and I adored the quote)!


tags must be one of my favorite pieces from the kit! they are so versatile and the colors are vibrant and bright, I think I used them on every layout 😀


I can’t wait to take some Polaroids, I’ve seen a lot of beautiful Pinterest projects using Polaroids!


thank you so much for stopping by today, I’ll see you very soon! 🙂



Yearbook: Roma


IMG_4508 copia

Hello everyone! Elisabetta here to show you a pocket page I made to document a very special night in Rome: me and my friend Francesca went to a concert back in February where all of the biggest italian artists sang.  It was a big event and we were lucky to have the tickets! We really enjoyed it and we had so much fun!


I took some pictures and even if they are dark I still wanted to include them in a pocket page to document the night! The colors of the May kit are perfect for this page. 🙂


I used the exclusive cards, stickers, alphas, flairs and diecuts! I love the big 4×6 journaling card: journaling is a big part (for me) when I include a pocket page in my album! I had a lot of things to say about this night and that card had just the perfect space. 🙂


I love this little embellishment that I created using a diecut, two stickers and an enamel dot. 😉


I really hope that you enjoyed this post, I’l see you very soon. 🙂



Study Hall: Using cards on a layout!



Hi eveyone! Elisabetta here today to show you a layout created with the beautiful March Kit! I always love the 3×4, 4×6 and 4×4 cards that are included in the kits and I try to find ways to include them in regular layouts. 🙂


I love to place the cards on the layouts so that it kinda looks like a mood board. This way I can add a lot of embellishments all over the page and have a lot of fun! 🙂


What do you think of this page design? How do you use the cards included in the kits?

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great day. 🙂




Yearbook: Double Pocket Page Layout


Hello Clique Friends!! Leigh here, to share a Pocket Page Layout from my main album! Love these exclusive cards from the Clique Into December Kit!!  All the cards below, except the white 3×4 cards, are from this kit!


These cards were so easy to work with! They coordinate perfectly with the Pinkfresh Studio embellishments from this kit. So I just added my photos and printed some journaling on the title card for a super quick layout!


I have a little video tutorial for you, showing you how to create the pocket page window card above. I got the idea because I wanted to highlight the acrylic embellishments in this kit.

LOdynski_Dec15_ProjectLifeSneakFor this quick pocket card, you can add a die cut and stitch on one of the die cut phrases included in the Pinkfresh Studio Card Stock Die Cut pack.

Super clean and simple!


Watch the short, three minute tutorial in the above You-tube video!


Thank you for joining us today!
