Hello Clique Kits Friends!!
Nathalie back with you today! We are still unpacking our bags after a month long vacation in Ecuador. The 5 week break from scrapbooking was hard for me (as i do it on a regular -almost daily- basis), but space was limited on the bags. So instead i opted to bring with me my personal journal (aka TN), lots of stamps, watercolor palettes, stickers, and a pieces of the many different past Clique Kits. Today i want to share with you some of the entries created while on vacation.
Every time there are small pieces of paper left from any particular kit, i tend to trim them to fit into my TN, and store them back in the kit’s bag so i can always use it with the coordinated embellishments. This is the case for one of the entries of my journal. I had prepped the pages, before hand, by gluing the last piece of the “Pint Size Fun” paper from Shimelle’s Little by Little collection featured in the PLAY kit to one of the TN’s pages.
I took all the alphas, and embellishments from the PLAY kit with me, so it was easy to add the details to the page while on the air. To create the title, I simply aligned the alphas to the bottom of the page, and added a few die cuts to balance the spread.
One of the best things I packed for the trip was the HP Sprocket (best travelling photo printer!!!), so i was able to obtain prints on the spot, and use them on my TN. For this picture, I layered the exclusive printables from the PLAY kit behind the picture, and added embellishments in a small cluster. The Altenew stamp (which i picked up at the Clique Kits Store) came in handy to add the small detail on the picture. The sentiment was typed with my grandfather’s type writer -which he has happily handed down to me, and is now living on my desk!!!!- Here is final layout:
Love the final look of this page! It is clean and simple, and was an ease to put together (though the sentiment came together upon arrival in Ecuador).
This next entry was created with the Clique Kits Spring Card kit (which I picked up on one of the Store sales), and a large photo .
After enlarging the picture to fit into a letter size page, I trimmed it and glued it to the TN spread (Yes, I packed photo paper with me, and used my cousin’s printer!). I picked a photo with lots of white space on it, so i can easily embellish onto the picture.
All the MME embellishments included in the Spring Card kit happen to match the colors of some of the exclusive printables in the POOL PARTY TN kit (which i purchase to take with me on the trip!) so it was easy to combine them to create clusters at the corners of the picture. This spread was all about the picture, so a little embellishing went a long way. Here is the final spread:
What can I say!. Love how easy this came together with a few pieces from some past Clique Kits. Sometimes it pays to rework your paper scraps into new projects, as well as to mix pieces from different kits to come with a new one that fits your needs. If you would like to check these kits remember some of them are still available at the Clique Kits Store (take advantage of the July sale happening at the moment!!). All the kits are beautiful and oh so versatile!.
I will be back to show you more of the entries of my travel journals, but remember you can always contact me with any questions you might have on how this came together.
See you all soon!
