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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Yearbook – Moments

yearbook

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!

Enza

Study Hall: Amazing 2016

@amytangerine @echopark @stampinup @cliquekits @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff, #cliquekits #studyhall #tailormade #amytangerine #projectlife #layout #cktailormade #sequin #creativeagenda #card #enamelstickers #stampinup

Hello Clique Friends!

Melissa here with you today and I’m sharing a page that is highlighting my Top 10 moments of 2016. I’m using the gorgeous January kit… oh my lands I love this kit!

So, before I show you the page, I just have to say I really enjoyed the whole process of making this page. I found that going through my Instagram feed was the best way to remember all the fabulous memories of 2016. For me, it was a great year! Full of blessings. Full of new adventures. Full of amazing friends and opportunities. Every year has it’s hardships but, the blessings outweighed those and I’m so thankful!

Truth be told, I had a very difficult time narrowing it down to 10 things but, that seems to be the magic number. And I feel like any more and it would just crowd the page. Once I finally decided on the 10 moments, I printed out my photos super small. I wanted to create a partial collage with lots of journaling. So, here is the finished product…

I kind of like the “authentic scrapbook page” feel of this. What I mean by that is, after glancing through the old scrapbooks my grandmother kept, everything was usually just placed together in a collage type manner. Sometimes little memorabilia was tucked behind photos and such. While I didn’t add that, I did use the embellishments from the kit to help add texture, color and interest to the layout. I just really love the look of a collage. All my memories connected and placed together.

I had to think of a way to add a title. My pages always need a title. And since I had a vision to place my journaling all on the right side, I thought of doing something sideways to visually split the design areas up. Those title words from Fancy Pants work perfect! Add in the thickers to create the year and, it’s perfect!

amazing2016c

When I make layouts, I love to journal. I like to talk so, it would make sense I’d have a lot to say on a written page, as well. Ha! I decided to get a little fancy (not really) with my journaling by sometimes printing and sometimes writing in cursive or my half print/half cursive type handwriting. That was one of my favorite things to see in my Grandma’s scrapbook – her handwriting.

Here is a little collage with a few more close-ups of my page:

 

Thank you so much for joining me today!

Grab your January Hey Sugar kit HERE. I hope you find time to document all your favorite memories from 2016!
