August Kick Off: Let’s Go to Malibu!


Hi everybody! It’s me, Gia. I know-long time no blog post. That’s why I am thrilled to be back today to celebrate my favorite kit of the year, on a day that just so happens to be my birthday!


Yay! How cute is that flair by Maryam Perez! I love all of the talent and collaboration that go into the design of every single Clique Kit. How about those perfectly coordinated resin scallop shells? And the sequins in this months kit- Erica did an unbelievable job putting that sequin mash together. I am so excited for you ALL to get your kit- whether it is the 12 x 12 paper based main kit or the delightful on-the-go version-the Traveler’s Notebook Kit- this month we are taking you to one of the hippest places. Anywhere in the world is gonna feel like Malibu!


Malibu TN kit

I have just two words right now that sum up this month’s fun twist! Holographic and Neon! It’s a little bit hard to capture the gorgeous holographic highlights in the Pink Paislee Summer Lights collection in the photos- you will see what I mean when you get to hold it your hands!  When I first opened my box, I just wanted to eat it all up. Not to mention the TN Kit contains not one or two, but a WHOLE PACK of Neon gel pens from Kaisercraft. I kid you not this is like a birthday and Christmas all rolled up in one box!


Inspired by the Mood Board!

So the mood board by Lacey Gasper this month kind of jump started my mojo this month. I took one look at that giant scallop shell pool float and I thought to myself- I have to use that “look” on a layout. Take a look!


Yes we have seen a lot of tropical motifs this past year- between flamingoes and palm trees and pineapples (and I am crazy about them all), but this scallop shell in luscious iridescent pinkish-lavender captured my attention as something refreshingly different!


I searched up “seashell” in the Silhouette Design store and loved this one by Totally Jamie

I backed the cut with different papers from the 6×6 paper in the TN kit and stitched around the edges for some texture, finishing it off with some sequins for embellishment! Here are some close ups.

Kinda Wish I Was a Mermaid!

But the next best thing was seeing all of the fun mermaid stuff in the August spotlight collection to scrapbook photos of my darling daughter in her mermaid tail.


This idea for this scalloped cut file was one of those Aha moments between Lacey and I to work with this month’s kits and I fell hard for  this GORGEOUS final design Lacey created! I know I will be cutting it again and again, but for this 8 1/2 x 11 layout I wanted the subtle white on white effect for the texture with bits and pieces of ephemera giving it the feel of water’s waves around an underwater mermaid’s lair.  (Don’t you adore that holographic seahorse?) Grab some puffy mermaid stickers right here while supplies last!


Thanks for being here as part of this community! I can’t wait to see what you create!




Share Your Space – Réka

Hello! It’s Réka, and I’m so excited to share a little tour of my craft space with you today. Beginning of this year I made a little investment and purchased a new desk and a shelf from IKEA. It was a really good choice and I fell in love with them.


Let’s see my desk. It is in our bedroom, opposite to the bed and the reason is why it is here, because that is the place of TV where it sits but when we finish the renewal in the other bedroom, it will be go to there with the bed and I can start to decorate the wall and the whole room finally. I can`t wait it, so exciting to create a new world in the house, which is only my own.

So far only one thing has gone to the wall yet which is my dream catcher and below there is my Silhouette Cameo on the desk. I was waiting a lot for my Cameo and when I look at the dream catcher and its message  „Follow your dream” it always inspiration for me that I am able to reach everything what I want, sometimes it takes so long but it is worth to wait. Believe me.


When I choose my desk I knew these thing must be put on it, so I decided to buy the bigger one and beside I still have a lot of space to create. However sometimes I start to work on the desk and at the end just finish it on the floor.

I love the drawers of the desk. They are so big and able to hide a lot of thing. I often use boxes or baskets to organize the items by category, for example one for enamels or one for flowers. This is a proven method to keep tidy easy.

Between the drawers there is my printer which is one of my favorite tool I often use.


The other one of my favorite thing is the shelve for my craft stuff.


I just decorate it as I want, how mood I am. It is a little gallery. It also contains a lot of boxes and baskets, my cute things and layouts, some old creative books.


I also love the lights and it was the first thing which went to the shelf.



My mother always says If everything has an own place after that I can keep tidy everywhere. I always remember her words.

This is it… “my studio”. I hope you enjoy this post! Thanks for dropping by and have a nice day! Réka
