December Clique Kits Pep Rally


Hi everybody. It’s Nicole here, wishing you a fabulous Wednesday! Welcome to the December Pep Rally. This month, we hope to inspire you with the “Girl Cave” kit. This kit is chocked full of goodies from Pink Paislee, My Mind’s Eye, Maya Road, Jillibean Soup, American Crafts, Bella Blvd., Becky Higgins Project Life and Pretty Little Studio! Everything coordinates so perfectly in this kit and there’s a little something for everyone. Whether you scrap girls or boys, this kit will work for you! We hope you love it as much as we do.
For our challenge this month, we went with an “Anything Goes” theme.
The Pep Rally, for those of you who are new to the Clique, is our monthly subscriber and design team blog share typically held the third week of the month and participants earn product credits-yes, free stuff to do what you love-who can beat that? It’s out with the old, in with the new time at Clique Kits when we (hopefully) have all killed our kit from the previous month and have lots to show off, and we start to chat and hype the excitement for the coming month’s kit. In other words, we party! We don’t leave out our guests-there is always a prize for a hopper who comments on each post and likes and shares on social media! Just leave a new comment for each like and share for a separate entry in the random drawing for this month’s prize. One lucky person will win this month’s Capture kit that is sold out! Get the word out and have your friends join our Pep Rally because they might end up with this gorgeous kit at their doorsteps!
Here’s today’s line up:

Feel free to hop in any order, if you get lost, you can always come back here to find your place. This month, I felt like playing with layers. I also played with one of the cut files and cards. This layout seemed to take me forever to complete. I just kept adding embellishments and felt like it was missing something. Eventually, I decided to just stop and let it be! Ever have one of those layouts?
And here’s another quick and easy layout I did.
Now, hop along and see what our design team and subscribers have been working on. Don’t forget to check out the gallery on the website landing page featuring our Varsity Team (design team) projects using the December kit and check out the Monthly Kit page for all the details about next month’s amazing Clique Kit “Alegria”. Take care!


Yearbook: the end!


Since yearbook is about documenting and preserving memories, for today’s layout I thought about using a photo that was captured on a very special day that I want to remember forever!

IMG_3670 copiaIt was the day of my last exam at the university. After the exam, I took a picture of the little book where professors write our grades and I sent it to my friends. It’s not a great picture, but I wanted to scrap it anyway so that I will never forget that moment. 🙂


I love the paper that I used as background. I usually work with white backgrounds, but this is a very pretty and soft paper!


I didn’t need much journaling, just a few words to remember the date and the subject!


Those glasses were perfect for a school themed layout! I don’t wear glasses but they just seemed the right choice for this page!!


I really hope that you will feel inspired to create something beautiful with your kit! have a lovely day scrappy friends. 🙂



Our happy journey



Hello everyone! Donna here and I’m back for today’s post using the awesome Dream Quest kit for June.

One of the things I love about Clique Kits is it’s unique and always up to date with the trend. What makes it unique for me are the printable and cut files included when you purchase a kit. How awesome is that, right?

Let me show you my layout


I played with the papers by cutting and stacking them up as seen. I added some paper twines to my usual messy threads this time.


I made use of the wooden Maya Road embellishment and adhered the arrow on top of it, instant dimension.


Another shot from a different angle


I kind of created two sections here in my layout. I placed the cut out word arts and printable at the left edge side vertically and again clustered/layered the little bits on top each other as seen. The cute white and gold flair gave it a nice touch.

That’s it for now, see you again in a few days for another post using Dream Quest.

Happy crafting!



Guest Designer: Kate Kennedy


Hey y’all, my name is Kate Kennedy (kraftinkate to the youtubers) and I am so excited to be the May Guest Designer for Clique Kits. When I received my kit back in March, I was stoked to see all the Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine. The papers are so fun and colorful and just what I needed to jump start my excitement for the upcoming summer months.

This is the first layout I made with the kit and I have to say I had a bit of a hard time cutting into the awesome papers. So, I pushed them aside, and pulled out that awesome pineapple stamp that is available in the store. I had visions of gold embossed pineapples as background so I set forth creating one. I embossed several pineapples with gold detail embossing powder then fussy cut them all out. Now, I am Not a fan of the fussy cut … at all, and although it looks like it might be tedious to cut, it really didn’t take long at all.

Once I had them all arranged the rest of the layout pretty much fell in place. I added some layers behind my photo and a few of the epoxy embellishments and really let the pineapples be the main embellishments. The photo is of a plaque in our pool that I thought was really neat. Can you tell I am super pumped for summer? 🙂

Here are some photos of the layout and be sure to check out the process video below for more details.

Happy Craft & Hobby Mega Show weekend everyone!  Jody is here on the blog today while Gia, Lacey and Erica and super busy ‘working’ at CHA!! I have to say it sure doesn’t feel like ‘work’ when we totally love what we are doing!!  This has been an amazing year for us for sure!

I am completely in love with our January Kit Tailor Made.  What’s not to love, right?!  Amy Tangerine, Chic Tags, May Arts Ribbon, plus our January Challenge Sponsor Creative Embellishments!!  Here’s my latest layout created with Tailor Made.

Here are some close ups for you!  As you can see, the triangles are white in my layout.  They came a plain brown color but I really wanted them to have a softer look.  I decided to heat emboss them with Ranger White Embossing Power to achieve this look.  It’s very easy to do! All you need to do is to press the chipboard pieces into your Versamark ink pad to get them nice and sticky.  Then, just shake some embossing power of your choice over the pieces and heat set them!

In the photo below you get a much closer look at the little finishing touches I added along the right side of my photo.  I fussy cut a bunch of the little hearts from the super sweet Amy Tangerine paper with all the little watercolor hearts inside the Polaroids.  I also added some teal ink to a few fabulous little Heidi Swapp resist die cuts.  I still wanted to add a little soft sparkle on this layout so I added some 10 mm Moonshine sequins and silver triangle sequins which are not in the kit.  The little photo negative acetate piece is from Tim Holtz (from my stash.)

Blog Image_YearbookHi, all. It’s Aliza here, sharing a little story with you today.

I’m going all the way back to Thanksgiving for this one. And, though this is a story about my family, I have a feeling that everyone here has their own version of this story to tell. When families gets together, there are conversations and topics that get repeated over and over again. Perhaps they are family stories that get told often. Or, as in my case, at least once during a family get together, the conversation turns to politics. Luckily, these family members mostly agree, so the discussion is all about what the powers that be should do to solve some of the world’s problems.

this is the part footerI love the little moment that this photo and layout capture. I love that after focusing on many small moments of the holiday, I was able to step back and see the big picture; ?The picture of a family together year after year, chatting, joking, and sharing our opinions. Even if we heard them all before.

What conversations get repeated at your home?
