Yearbook – Remember This

13708352_10206587466700644_3123589168410663782_o

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.

I hope you felt inspired today to keep creating with the beautiful Bee You kit. You can find add-ons and exclusive printables in the Clique store.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

Yearbook: Time

Yearbook

Hello CK friends! Maryám here to share another layout using the February BEE YOU kit. If you want to get this kit, go to the shop now, because we still have a few left.

For today’s layout I used the “sweet as honey” paper, and I cut the hexagons trying to get a kind of diagonal design. I’ve stitched arround some of them and on the others I put some embellishments with 3D foam to give more dimension.

mperez_feb17_time

I tried to do two cluster of the embellishments following the diagonal design, so I made one on the bottom right corner and the other one on the top left corner.

As you can see, I put some butterflies from the rub-ons sheet, a few enamel triangles and some flowers from the ephemera pack and some that I fussy cut from the “Hazel Gingham” paper. Of course all of the supplies are included in the kit.

mperez_feb17_time5

For the title I used my favorite thickers, yes- the gold ones that were included in the kit, and I formed the word “time”. If you already saw the photo of my layout, you’ll know that I used a photo of a big watch. I’ve done this because I want to write my journaling about TIME. This year I will try to focus to do my best for all of the things, and try to balance my school work with scrapbooking, design work and photography.

I hope you liked this layout, and stay tune to the blog to see more inspiration from the others CK Designers.

Geek Lab: Love

GeekLab

Hello Clique friends! Maryám here again to show you a layout made using a cut file of this month, but as you know, I don’t have Silhouette Cameo, so I decided to print the PNG image and then add stitching around the globe. ck-feb17-cuts-web2_orig

This is the result!

mperez_feb17_love

I used my Prima watercolors to paint into the globe, and also I added some flowers and butterflies to give a little bit of interest to my page.

mperez_feb17_love2

For the title I used the beautiful gold stickers that came in the kit, and formed the word love. I’ve chosen that word because I love the photo.

mperez_feb17_love3

In this layout I wanted to try something different with the rub-ons, so I put a couple of them on a piece of acetate and this is how them look. I think they look wonderful. Definitly, I’m going to do it on my next pages.

mperez_feb17_love4

mperez_feb17_love5

The last thing that I want to mention: I added the journaling (wrote by my typewriter) on the left side of the photo.

mperez_feb17_love6

Guys, I hope you liked this page, and if you are subscriber, you have the cut files and printables on the “Monthly Downloads” tab. Don’t forget to use them, because they are awesome!

Thanks for stopping by!

Field Notes: Vacation

field-notes

Hello Everyone! Maryám here with you today to show you two pages of my travelers notebook created with the awesome February kit called Bee You.

mperez_feb17_vaction

For these pages I used a photo that I took with my Instax Mini 8, and what I wanted to document was a day that with my family went to Frutillar wich is a beautiful lake and beach. It was a beautiful day and I captured a lot of photos there.

Here are some close-ups:

On the right side I put my photo and I added some embellishments around it. I put the title with some stickers from the Gratitude TN kit that match perfectly with the kit.

mperez_feb17_vaction2

And on the left side, I used a card from one the papers of the kit and I put it my typewriter to add the journaling of that day. I also put some embellishments and some enamels triangles.

mperez_feb17_vacation3

The butterflies that you see are rub-ons that I’ve put on a piece of white cardstock, then I cut them and I put them around the page.

I hope you liked these pages. Have a wonderful day!

fullsizeoutput_3929

February is here and for the past two weeks we have been absolutely drooling in anticipation of the beautiful Bee You kit featuring the Hazelwood collection from 1Canoe2 and many gorgeous accompanying exclusives! Here are some highlights of what is in store for you when the postman delivers your box! (Not a subscriber yet? Click here and please hurry- there are a limited number of slots left before subscriptions will be sold out-at least temporarily!)

fullsizeoutput_3928

Here is a layout I did using the February Kit, add ons, and the We R Memory Keepers CMYK inks available in the shop right here.

Here are some close-ups.

If you are interested in how I used the inks and a Clique Kits stamp, I made a short video you can find here. The fun stamp I used was still available when I planned this post but has since sold out 😦

As a newbie to the You Tube world, I have only started to post videos, and am still on the learning curve for making and editing them. It is truly amazing though how much you can learn on You Tube!

Did you know that many of the Design Team Members and my own partner in crime, Erica Thompson (Erica Rose Creates) have their own You Tube Channels? They also try to upload their videos with tutorials, unboxings, and fun process videos to the Clique Kits channel. Don’t miss out on all this great, FREE content for your inspiration by subscribing to ALL of these great channels. One of our goals for this Spring is to increase our You Tube presence by providing frequent, quality content for our subscribers and fans to enrich their experience as a papercrafter. If you have a scrapbooking or other crafty You Tube channel we would love for you to share it with us in the comments.

New Product on the way

This is also an exciting time of year since the 2017 Creativation Trade Show just took place and we are anxiously awaiting new releases for you guys to take advantage of being able to add on to your kit boxes.

Here are just some of the brands and collections we fell in love with and hope to have arriving in the warehouse in February and March! Of course, we don’t want to be a spoiler and show you the beautiful products planned for upcoming kits since it would ruin the surprise, but we promise they will be amazing!

New Design Team Additions Announced Soon!

Other news…Clique Kits recently had a design team call to fill some spots being vacated on our design team when this term ends, starting with our April reveal. We are getting ready for the big announcement and reveal of the extremely talented and special ladies who will be joining us soon! Stay tuned and don’t go away…

Traveler Notebooks Shipping Soon!

Those of you lucky enough to get a pre-order in before they were sold out- the latest installment in our series of limited edition traveler notebook kits are getting packed to be shipped as we speak. As promised- they should be shipping in early February!

tngraphic

Traveler’s notebooks have been around in certain circles, but for the first time they have take the mainstream scrapbooking world by storm! We love this particular genre of documenting and memory keeping because it is so freeing. Go ahead and unleash your creativity whether it is mainly journaling, sketching, painting, mixed media, or using it as a daily layout or memory mini book!  There are no specific rules. Make it as clean and simple or as messy as you want. Many people are organizing different types of travelers notebooks for different uses and streamlining a multitude of projects in this manner. You will see Traveler notebook inserts listed as add-ons for future Clique Kits very often! We love how they easily accommodate the same products in the main kit, and even help to use up scraps as well as experiment with tools like stamps and inks, paints, and more. A great way to make sure you kill your kit. We will continue to offer some product suited to those of you who decorate your planners or document and store photos in your planners too. If you are a planner gal, don’t forget to check out the Planner Shop section of the Clique Kits store for some unique goodies.

USPS Raising Prices Again

Clique Kits, like most small businesses relying on the post office to deliver the happy mail, will be negatively affected by the latest price hikes. We are in the process of crunching the numbers to work out any upcoming changes to our shipping costs. We are reluctant to have to adjust subscriptions causing inconvenience for everyone, but may have no choice. Changes may unfortunately also affect the prices for shipping product from the shop, whether as add ons or regular orders. We will be completely transparent about these changes, if and when they happen. If our shipping prices change, we will send an email notification. Please subscribe to the newsletter/blog in order to make sure you are on the mailing list for all news and updates.

Introducing a New Clique Kits Event

Starting in February 2017 (yes, this month) Clique Kits will begin publishing a semi-annual online magazine and Look Book. You have probably seen a fashion look book. It is something like a catalog with photographs showing products as they may be used and presented in a way that inspires. Every 6 months our graphic design team will be working closely with designers to present projects and inspiration to help you get the most from kits during your term as a subscriber. We will feature not only kits, but store products and exclusives. There are many ways for YOU, our subscribers and followers to get involved in The Clique community, and the Look Book will be one more way. Stay tuned for the first ever call for submissions to our next Look Book to be published in August of 2017. The details will soon follow, but this publication will be available to the public and submissions from subscribers and other customers if published will be awarded  product credit and other prizes!

All in all, February is going to be quite a full month. And I didn’t even mention Groundhog Day or Valentine’s Day!  We love seeing all of your layouts with the January Kit and the January add on Valentine’s Day kit. More cute Valentine’s Day products can be found here.

No matter who you are, what color your skin is, what religion you practice, what state or country you live in, please remember that you are now and always will be welcome here. The Clique Kits community will always be welcoming and will promote love, kindness, and understanding. Life is Lovely!

Wander often, wonder always

Hi there scrappy friends,

Zsoka here with you today with my first projects as a guest designer for Clique Kits! I’m super excited and happy to have been asked to contribute this month! Thank you guys for the opportunity!

The February kit, Bee You, is stunning! I feel so lucky that I can guest this month! I love blue and the colors in the Hazelwood collection are just fab! All the love for this kit!

For my first projects I picked out some blue and mint papers. My main design element on the layout is the wonderful CK exclusive cut file. First I tilted and cropped the cut file. I wanted to use different papers for the different words, so I separated Wander and Wonder from the rest. I cut the bigger part from white card stock and backed the two words with different patterned papers. I then cut the remaining two words separately from patterned papers.

I adhered the cut file on my background paper, placing Wander and Wonder in their original position. I hand stitched around these two to add some texture and interest. The flowers I only adhered in the middle and on the edge of the page. I love the dimension this adds.

Then I fussy cut these gorgeous flowers from another patterned paper, with some additional leaves, and adhered them with pop dots on top of my die cut flowers. Some leaves I added under the cut file, just to have different layers and create a more dimensional look.

20170122_150603finalbanner20170122_150606finalbanner20170122_150609finalbanner

I added some layers of tissue paper behind my photo and also tucked a tag and another card behind it. I wrote my journaling on this card. To draw attention to the journaling, I added two enamel shapes. I stamped the date, added some black splatters and done!

20170122_150620finalbanner20170122_150623finalbanner20170122_150636finalbanner

I also created a set of cards using the same color scheme. There’s a lovely cut apart sheet in the kit which I thought would be perfect for some cards! Really simple and quick (well…I myself generally spend more time on simple things because I never really feel like they are quite done ha!). I used some cork pieces, ephemera, enamel shapes, and fussy cut butterflies – all these I had left after creating all my layouts with the kit.
