Geek Lab: Me

Hi everybody. Nicole here with a layout I created using goodies from the shop! If you haven’t been to the shop, you might want to take a look. We have some fabulous product marked down! And yes, everything used on this layout is available in the shop, but hurry because they might not be available for long.

For this layout, I decided to use the Pink Paislee “Cest La Vie” paper pack, acetate alphas, stickers and Jillibean Soup’s vellum foil tag.

 

I really like the patterns in the acetate paper that comes in the paper back so I decided to use the vellum tag to cut part of the patterned from the acetate paper to layer on the tag. I must say, it looks so pretty!

I cut several pieces of patterns, sentiments, shapes from the cut-apart paper and acetate to use as die cuts for this layout since I did not have any on hand.

I love patterned paper because the possibilities are endless. You can mix patterns to create a fun background for your layout, cut the paper into a patterned using a Silhouette or cut bits and pieces/sentiments from the patterns to use as die cuts for your layout.

 

Before adhering the acetate embellishments to your layout,, make sure you peel the plastic film off… Let me just say, I did not…

Thanks for visiting today. Be sure to check out the shop today for some great deals!

Study Hall — MY GIRLS

Hello Clique Kits fans!!

Hope you all are getting lots of inspiration from all the beautiful projects created with the beautiful Aquarelle Kit.   This month’s  kit is gorgeous, and it features the beautiful “Wild at Heart” collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.   You want to get your hands on this kit!

I was drawn to all the watercolor floral designs from the collection, and knew that i would be fussy cutting a large number of them for one of my projects.   For this layout, I  chose to document one of the many pictures of our Mother’s Day weekend by creating a large shaker element, and framing it with flowers and exclusive printables from this month’s Aquarelle main kit.  So sit down, and enjoy the video on how this layout came together:

 

 

 

I chose a large picture with lots of negative space for this layout.   First I created  a shaker element, by stitching together a circle of light pink/coral cardstock, a same size vellum circle, and the outline of the circle (made of white cardstock) together.   Before closing the shaker element, a bit of the Sorbet Kit sequin mix was added to the inside of the  pocket, especially the large flowers in the sequin mix.

The Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s “Artisan” paper serves as the base for this layout.   A little bit of white acrylic paint behind the shaker element helps bring out the colors in the sequin and the flowers that frame the picture.

To frame the picture, and the shaker element, floral designs were cut from the “Patchwork”, “Luscious”, “Memento” papers (all included in the main Aquarelle Kit), and then glued behind the pocket circle and the large picture.

I took advantage of the many exclusive printables included in the  Aquarelle kit, as well as the “Fussy Cuts” page to add small clusters around the picture.

The Pinkfresh Studio Alphas included in the Aquarelle kit are so easy to incorporate to all types of projects.  Since there is a large white space in the picture, the title was glued straight on the picture right at the larger floral cluster.  A small fussy cut butterfly from the “Mariposa” paper completes the title.   After adding the journal lines, a few gold ink splatters complete this project.  Here is the final layout:

Don’t you just love all the colorful florals in this month’s Aquarelle kit?  Oh, I am in love with this kit ( and I think, tears were shed when I fussy cut the papers, they are just too beautiful!!).  Remember there is only a few kits left for sale at the Clique Store, so run to the store to get one of the kits.

I am always a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.

 

See you all soon!!

Yearbook – Favorite Cupcake

13708352_10206587466700644_3123589168410663782_o

Hello Everyone! Here is Réka again. Today, I’m sharing my projects using the beautiful Sorbet Main Kit. My favorite parts of this kit are the puffy stickers, the die cuts, the buttons, the papers … All right, OK, well… the truth is I love the whole kit.

ck-may17-kit-1_1_orig

Do you know that every Clique Kit contains exclusive digital printables, don’t you? This month Maryám designed the wonderful printables which you can find here. This time I’ve printed it on the vellum paper and I really love the outcome. This idea comes from Gia.

Now let us see my layout! I’ve chosen a photo about my homemade cupcake and I wanted to document this memory because it was the first time when I’ve used carrots for cupcakes and the result was really delicious. The cupcake is my favorite type of cake that’s why I’ve decided to put FAVORITE word on my layout, from Pretty Little Studio, this arrived with the kit together. I ’ve also used some puffy stickers and die cuts from Pinkfresh Studio. Additionally, some pieces of the vellum printable, enamels and labels and one button also have gone to my layout.At the end, I’ve added some yellow mists and my layout is done.

My first thought was to put the recipe of the carrot cupcake below the photo, but it was to long. And at that moment a new idea just came to mind, I would put this layout in my yearbook so I’ve started to create the second page for the receipt.

Firstly, I’ve printed the recipe of the carrot cupcake on the white cardstock. The recipe is in Hungarian which is my native language. Then I’ve added some pieces of the same patterned paper which was the base of the other layout and a few stickers, enamels and yellow mists. For the title I’ve used the alphabet stamps set from Latina Crafter who is the sponsor of this month’s challenge. You can find more information about the monthly challenge here. Both of two pages I was stitching a little bit with yellow thread which is my favorite technic on the layout. Let’s see the next page.

Here are some close-ups.

Finally here are the two pages together.

Hopefully, I managed to inspire you to document your favorite recipe. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful crafty day. See you next month.

Art Studio: Amazing view

Hello friends! Maryám here again to share another layout using the April 2017 kit. If you want to get this kit, just click here, we still have a few left.

For this layout, the first thing that I did was cut a cut file on my Silhouette Cameo. Then I took my watercolors and I used the “packaging” tecnique to do some big watercolor splatters of pink and yellow color.

After that, it’s time to do the funniest part, yes! Embellish the page. I put some flowers, stamped a instax camera from an Altenew stamp that I got from the shop, added some enamel shapes and some stickers from Freckled Fawn.

And for the cut file, I backed it with one of the project life cards that I designed for the kit, with vellum paper, and also with one of the Paige Evans paper.

Here is the result:

Here are some close-ups:

For the title I used one of the words from Freckled Fawn, and the white alpha from Elle’s Studio, but as you can see it’s not white, that’s because I painted it with a gold pen from one of our previous Traveler’s Notebook kit.

I hope you liked this layout. If you have any questions about this project just let me a comment below. Thanks for stopping by!

Yearbook: Beautiful

Hey CK friends! I’m here to share my third project made using the beautiful April 2017 Jellybean Kit. For today’s layout I wanted to document a photo with flowers, so I thought in the flower’s paper that came in the kit.

What I’ve done was fussy cut some of the flowers, and put them on the left side of my page. Then, around the flowers I created a cluster of embellishments, including enamel shapes, some leaves cuts, etc.

Here are some close-ups:

My title for this layout was “beautiful”. I chose it because the flowers of the photo are just beautiful. I don’t like so much to take flowers photos but I this one just stole my heart.

The journaling is about where I took the photo and how much I love that place.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. And don’t forget to document those simple things or moments that we have in our lives.

Happy Sunday!

Geek Lab: Better Together

Hello Friends! I’m so happy to be back here at the Clique Kits blog. First of all I’m going to do a quick question, Did you see the cut files of this month? If you already saw them, I know you will think the same than me, they are just beautiful, especially the flowers cut file. I just couldn’t resist myself, so I created a layout using that cut file. Now, I’m going to show you the result of it.

 

For backing the flowers I used one of the Paige’s papers that came in the kit, and for the other strips I used the same paper, but back side of it.

I also used some of the stamps from the sponsor of the month Latina Crafter. They have a lot of beautiful stamps (in english and spanish), you should check their shop.

Here are some close-ups to see the details a bit better.

I hope you liked this layout, and if you have a Silhouette Cameo or any other cutting machine, you should use this cut file.

See you soon guys!

Geek Lab: Love

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.

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