Art Studio: Capturing Life Today

Art Studio

Hi everyone. I have a fun, creative, mixed media layout to share with you using the September Moon Child kit. I’ve been playing with my stamps and spray mists. I saw this sketch on Creative Scrapper’s blog, I immediately wanted to give it a try. Especially since I had a 4×6 photo that I wanted to scrap, but didn’t know what design I wanted to use. Sometimes, it can be tricky scrapping a 4×6 photo onto an 8 1/2″x11″ layout.

I used the arrow stamps by Precious Remembrance to create a fun background for my layout. Isn’t it fun. I love Teal! It’s my favorite color. Also, I had a few scraps left over from the exclusive paper from this month’s kit and decided to use them. Sometimes, when I love a certain paper, I have a hard time throwing away the scraps. So… I hoard them. Hey, there’s no shame in that. Right?!


For fun, I added the big tag in the background that I had from my stash. And I used the polka dot paper that I had from my stash since Cooper is a Dalmatian with very few spots, I decided to add a few spots to the layout. I hand-cut the star and sentimental journaling from patterned paper.

Art Studio: Life a beautiful ride

Blog Image_Art Studio

Happy Monday scrappers! For today’s post, I decided to play with my stamps that I just received from the shop. I selected three ink pads that matched this month’s “La Dolce Vita” kit and pulled out my Precious Remembrance Shop stamps. We might have a few left in the shop if you are interested. These stamps are good quality too.

Since I wanted to scrap a non-kid layout, I decided to snag my sister’s photo from Facebook. Just recently, she and her boyfriend went to the beach for the weekend and I fell in love with this shot. She reminds me a lot of myself. I love her…

I really love how the circle images turned out on this layout. I used a few of the Mushroom Wood Dots from Jillibean Soup and colored them with white ink to make them pop off the page.


Here are a few close-ups:

I used a clear butterfly on my photo. I love how it looks on the photo.




Thanks for stopping by today!



May Clique Kits Pep Rally

Hi everybody. It’s Nicole here, wishing you a fabulous Wednesday! Welcome to the May Pep Rally. This month, we hope to inspire you with the “Northern Lights” kit. I am loving all the Fancy Pants papers, journaling cards and the exclusive die-cuts this month! What do you think? Gorgeous.
For our challenge this month, we challenged everyone to use white space on their projects. I love the look of a layout with lots of white space, but every now and then, I like to mix it up a bit.
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 Northern Lights kit! 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 decided to play with my stamps. I love stamping, but I don’t pull them out enough. However, when I saw the Precious Remembrance stamps, I couldn’t help myself. I was so inspired to create my own background for my layout. I used a few journaling cards and die-cuts to decorate the center of the circles. Believe it or not, this layout was so simple once I stamped my images onto the cardstock.
Supplies: Cardstock: Stampin’Up, Journaling cards: Die-Cuts: Clique Kits, Flair: Tag: Stickers: Fancy Pants Designs, Stamps: Precious Remembrance Shop, Ali Edwards, Ink: Stampin’Up.
Here are a few close-ups.

Art Studio: It’s messy and I love it!


Hi everyone.  I don’t know about you, but I love this gorgeous paper by Fancy Pants Designs. It’s beautiful isn’t it? When I first started pushing papers around, I realized that I didn’t really want to cover this paper up that much. But I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. So, I got out my stamps and Silhouette pens and started doodling and stamping all over the paper to make it more artsy. Have you seen these awesome stamps by Precious Remembrance Shop? I love them and we have some available in the shop!

IT'S MESSY AND I LOVE IT_Fancy Pants Designs_Clique Kits_Nicole Martel_Precious Remembrance shop_stamping

After stamping the arrows and hearts onto the paper, I used a white silhouette pen to fill in the shapes to make them stand out more.


I used the scribble stamp image to make the flowers a little messier. I love it.


A little tip: When using black ink and the image doesn’t turn out clear, use a black marker to fill in the image.


Notice the difference?
