November Pep Rally

pr-image

This month Clique Kits is trying something new as part of our monthly celebration of our current kit creations and the reveal of the next month’s kit. While we really loved the idea of a monthly blog share, we realized that today’s paper crafters are trending toward  Instant gratification such as Instagram for inspiration! Like everything new, we expect to run into some snags along the way. But basically how it works is very simple.

Subscribers are  eligible to earn free product credits for participating in the Pep Rally via Instagram. Participation is a very relaxed commitment on a month by month basis. Simply email marketing@cliquekits.com by the 15th of the month to have your credits recorded. Subscribers may earn 5 credits (1 credit=$1) for each month they participate. If you end up not participating- we  lash you with wet noodles. (Kidding.) We simply skip over your points that month. Credits are cumulative as long as you are still a subscriber! Sound good so far?

What do you do once you sign up? This is really straightforward too. We hope this step by step instruction covers what you do,  who is eligible to win a prize, and what the prizes are.

Step 1: Take pictures of projects you created using the monthly kit (please use a minimum of 80% kit and add on products so that the inspiration provided for the Clique is kit-focused.) You can do this anytime during the month- but be sure your photos post before 10 am CST on  Pep Rally Day.

Step 2: On or before Pep Rally day, join the event on Facebook and Instagram by sharing on Facebook with your friends and tagging them on Instagram letting them know that each name tagged is entered to win a free kit!

Step 3: Use the Instagram search tool with the keywords specified in the Hashtags and enjoy the eye candy! Leave some love for all your friends!

Step 4: Tune in to Clique Kits for announcements of the monthly Pep Rally participant winner selected to win an additional $10 product credit to spend in the Clique Kits store!

And without further ado, here are the hashtags.  The first 3 are the same every month. The last two will obviously change each month.

Designer in the Spotlight – Jill Yegerlehner

promcommittee

Jill Yegerlehner_Family Photo

1. Tell us a little bit about your creative process and what inspires you?

My creative process starts with pulling together a board of design elements, colors, patterns and any “seasonal” items. In most collections we have a “focus” page and this is usually the first page in the collection and is the “focus” of the collection. Recently we’ve been pulling in many different elements, kind of making it a “hodgepodge” of designs. Just about everything inspires me – clothing, fabrics, home décor, my kids, print ads, publications, other designers, paint colors and so much more. I probably spend a little too much time on Pinterest.

2. Where and when are you most creative?

Hmm, good question – I have to be “on” or “creative” most of the time. We work on a lot of product that does not come to fruition so we’re always coming up with new concepts. I work best in the evenings when things are quiet and I’m not being bombarded with distractions.

3. What are some of your must have supplies?

I love cardstock that matches our key Jillibean colors (we always use the same colors throughout our collections so you can mix and match), my Cutterbee scissors, Tombow adhesive, 3L foam squares are a must for me (I use them on every project), my Silhouette Cameo and a good paper trimmer. When I’m making wood projects – I always use vinyl stencils, Jillibean Happy Hues paints and make up sponges.

4. Have you always had a love for design?

I have. I love it. I love interior design, product design, retail fixture design… I just love it all.

5. 3 things people probably do not know about you. Ok..

1. I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania and graduated with 52 people. 2. I’ve bicycled across thestate of Iowa. 3. I have a Biology degree and was a food scientist prior to starting Jillibean Soup.

6. Favorite:
• Book – 50 Shades… just kidding! To Kill a
Mockingbird
• Movie – Silence of the Lambs (I know, creepy) or the
Hangover
• Candy – Chocolate all the way
• Drink – Diet Pepsi (it’s my vice)
• Music – Adele, JT, Pentatonix, Coldplay and many
Christian artists as well
• Color – Yellow, Apple Green or Aqua
• TV Show – Dancing with the Stars – the girls and I
watch it together

7. Out of all the collections you have created so far which is your favorite?

It’s too hard to choose! I love one of our latest collections – Hardy Hodgepodge which was just released for the fall.

8. Can you share how Jillibean Soup came about and where the name came from?

Your question about always loving design ties into this…I have always loved design and wanted to somehow get into this industry.  I’m not a graphic designer but I direct every piece of product we do. I researched and researched how I could break into the industry. Our first collections were actually printed on kraft paper to set us aside from everyone else. Jillibean Soup was actually not the first name of the company. “Jill’s Attic” was. One day I came across a product that was trademarked “Jill’s Attic”. I had to sit down and make a list of new names after that. I picked my top 6 and sent them to my friends/family to see which one they liked. Every single one of them came back with “Jillibean Soup”. It has allowed us to do some fun marketing with the “soup” part.

9. Who are some of your influences?

God, my husband, my girls, our design team, Pinterest, HGTV just to name a few

10. Any hints on what is to come Jillibean Soup?

It may involve “planning”.. hint, hint. 🙂

Jill thank you so much for being our Designer in the Spotlight!!  We can not wait to see some planner Jilllibean Soup products!  Thank you everyone for stopping by the blog today!  Not only did Jill share a little bit about herself with us today she also has a fabulous prize for one lucky reader!
