Let’s Hold Hands Always

student of the month

Hello everyone!  Erica here with you today to bring you one of our guest contributors!  Renee Aslette has been working with our Limited Edition Valentine Kit and we are so excited to share what she has created!  First lets get to know Renee a little better!

What is your favorite tool?

My favorite tool at the moment would have to be the We R Memory Keepers Typeset Typewriter. I love it! I got it for Christmas from my husband and I use it all the time.

Who is your favorite designer/paper company?

My favourite designer/paper company would have to be Cocoa Vanilla Studios. I love the colors, the embellishments and there has not been a release that I haven’t loved.

Where do you find inspiration?

My inspiration is usually my two boys, Jackson and Lucas. I love to create layouts using their photo’s. I do like to create by having a whole collection on my desk and I just go from there.

When you scrap do you listen to music, watch tv or need complete quiet?

I am very fortunate to have a scrap room in the house. I have Pandora on my computer and I always listen to music while I am creating. One Direction is one of the channels I created on my Pandora Station but don’t tell anyone!

How long have you been scrapping and one thing you love about it?

I have been scrapbooking for approximately 9 years. I love the people I get to meet and connect with along the way. I love that I can just create for me. I find it to be my little piece of heaven. I feel a bit lost if I haven’t done anything for a couple of weeks.

Thanks Renee for sharing a little bit about yourself with us!  Now lets get to the beautiful project for today!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!!

I am so excited to be a Guest Contributor with you this month.

I was very fortunate to be designing with The January Kit – Hey Sugar and the Limited Edition Valentine’s Kit which has since Sold Out.

This is a layout I created by using various patterned papers from the Kit and just having some fun with them. Cutting and tearing to create this layout.

Here are some close-ups:

How awesome is this brush letter sticker title from Crate Paper. As soon as I had seen that title in the kit, I knew exactly which photo I would use.

img_4172

I cut strips of paper from the January Kit – Hey Sugar.  The gold hearts are from the same kit, it was the specialty vellum.  I fussy cut the hearts out to use one their own. The crosses were from the Puffy Stickers from the Fancy Pants – Joy Parade Collection.

I cut thin strips of paper from the kit and layered them to create the effect across the page.

I just love the puffy stickers!!

My journaling says, “I remember my mum and dad holding hands.  I loved seeing it.  Now I get to hold your hands anytime I like.”

The photo is from our wedding day.

Thank you so much for stopping by to get to know me a little better.

I have loved being a part of the Clique Kits Team for the month.

ck_coordt_headshots-1617_v-copy-16

What is your Favorite tool? Cutter Bee Scissors, Sewing Machine,

Who is your favorite designer/paper company?  Crate Paper

Where do you find inspiration?  Challenges – They are a great jumping point for creativity. I usually have the TV on while scrapping but can’t watch anything that demands my attention.

When you scrap do you listen to music, watch tv or need complete quiet? I usually have the TV on while scrapping but can’t watch anything that demands my attention.

How long have you been scrapping and what is one thing you love about it? Since 2001. One thing I love about it: The creative path it led me down and the connection with like-minded people around the world.

Sherry thank you for sharing a little bit about yourself with us today!  Now lets get to Sherry’s first project using the February Bee You kit!  Grab your coffee, tea, soda or water and get ready to be inspired!

Hello, friends! Sherry here and I’m thrilled to be a guest designer this month! My layout started with a sweet photo of my daughter and her friend, dressed up for a school dance. The pink, black, and white color combination of the gorgeous Hazelwood floral papers were the perfect match for the photo.

Although I adore the over-sized floral paper, I knew it would overpower my layout. I fussy cut several of the flowers and added french knots to add dimension and a pop of black.

img_3502

To mat the photo I mixed a couple of pieces from the cut apart sheet of patterned paper.

img_3503

I needed smaller scale leaves on the perimeter of the layout, so I fussy cut a few from the cut apart sheet. img_3510

For the title, I used a stamp from my stash and the gorgeous Thickers that came in the kit.

img_3532

To pull some soft pink to the top of the layout, I machine-stitched around the edge and layered some ephemera for the cluster at the top.

I’ve loved working with this beautiful kit! Thanks for joining us on the blog today!

Hey everyone, Tiffani here with another layout made with the Hello Sugar January Kit.
ck_jan17_kit
Mixed media supplies are by far my favorite to work with. You have so many options on creating backgrounds and your own personal touches. For this layout I started with white watercolor paper. I prepped my page with gesso and then once that dried I used Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. To blend I used water and my fingers. On top of that I decided to do a brick wall using Rangers Texture Paste.

I love all the papers in this months kit. These are 3 of my favorite patterns. I love the torn paper look so I added that to one of the edges of each paper. The pictures I chose for this layout are of my 2 closest friends. They have been there for me through some of the hardest moments in my past year.

I adore all of the embellishments in this months kit. The vinyl stickers and thickers work so well together. I added some twine to the little xoxo tag and added 3 hearts to signify each one of ours.

10 Minute Layout

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

Hey Clique Fans!  Erica here with you today and I am so excited to be bringing your a layout with the beautiful January 2017 kit!  It has been a very long time since I have sat down at my desk to do some scrapbooking and it felt really good!  I pulled out my January kit and the Limited Editon Valentine kit and sat down!

ck_jan17_kit

At first I will admit I had no idea what to do!  It has been so long my creative mojo was just lost!  I ended up pulling out a sketch and trying that out for a bit but then realized I was just not liking how my layout was turning out!  So I pulled out a fresh new white piece of cardstock and do what I do best!  Just cutting strips and adhering then down!  No sketch.. just sticking things down and having fun!

6d5a7287

After my 3 strips of paper were adhered down on the left side everything else just fell into place!  Working with the kits makes it so easy to scrap and scrap fast!  Everything in the kit is picked and meant to all go together beautifully so no time is needed digging in my stash!  I even used some of the pretty tissue paper that we package up our kits in!  I think it adds some nice texture to the layout and who does not like polka dots!

6d5a7290

The Limited Edition Valentine kit is a perfect partner with the January kit!  It is a of coarse Valentine themed but there are plenty of elements in the kit than can be used for non Valentine projects!  We only have a couple left in the shop so now is the time to grab one before they are gone!  Everything on my layout came from the kits except for the gold glitter Loved word!

6d5a7284

The photo I scrapped is of me getting snuggles from Eli James and Izzy.  You can not really see Izzy in the photo but she is tucked in behind me very close!  You can see a bit of her ear poking out and Eli James was fast asleep cuddled in my arm!  I tried to get more of his face in the photo but I did not want to move to much and have them move!

6d5a7291

I love the end result of my layout and knowing that it only took 10 minutes is even better!  Make sure to check out  my blog tomorrow for another layout using these kits and a December cut file!

Clique Kits Design Contributor -Jill Keller

 

@cliquekits, #cliquekits #promcommittee #DIY #ckdesignteam #designteam #scrapbook #card #inspiration #octoberkit #masqueradeball

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday!  Today I am here to introduce you to our December Design Contributor Jill Keller!  Jill will be sharing this month using the December 2016 kit bringing you tons of inspritation!  Jill is a full time mommy and we are sure you have seen her work from places like Pretty Little Studio, The Cut Shoppe and Gossamer Blue!  Her work will inspire you and we can not wait to share what she is doing with the December kit!  But until then we will get to know Jill a little bit and also have a look at what she created with her October Clique Kit!

ck_coordt_headshots-1617_v-copy-13

First how about we get to know a little bit about Jill!  She has taken the time to answer a few fun questions for us!

What is your favorite tool?

Definitely my Silhouette! But I have a deep love for my little piercing tool when I do hand-stitching.

Who is your favorite designer/paper company?

There are so many talented designers and paper companies! I adore PinkFresh Studios and Fancy Pants Designs right now, I can always use their products on a page.

Where do you find inspiration?

I look to my peers! I follow a ton of great scrappers on Instagram and I also follow all the kit clubs, so definitely Instagram for inspiration.

When you scrap do you listen to music, watch tv or need complete quiet?

Does listening to my 4 yr old talk count? hahaha! My kiddo talks non-stop! She has a tiny table in my craft room and is in there with my while I create. Otherwise, silence. Sometimes I’ll pull up something from iTunes but that’s rare.

How long have you been scrapping and one thing you love about it?

I started scrapping years ago, but didn’t get into it seriously until after my wedding in 2008. I started being active online sharing my work about 5 years ago.  1 Thing I love: the process of creating. I wish I were one of those scrappers who is about preserving memories and sharing the story, but it’s truly about making stuff for me. I love looking at products and seeing how they can be put together and then finding a photo that fits the creation. Yes, I am a backwards scrapper, haha!

Jill thank you so much for shaing a little bit about your love for this craft with us!  For even more about Jill and more projects and inspriation please head on over to her blog HERE!  Jill has also been busy creating with the October Clique Kit that is avaiable now in the Clique Kits shop HERE.  Here are some of her beautiful projects!
