Clique Kits September Pep Rally

pr-image

 

 

Welcome! Please join us today for the September Instagram share. We hope to inspired you with a variety of projects using the September Sundance kit. Here’s how this works; it’s very simple.

Subscribers are eligible to earn free product credits for participating in the Pep Rally via Instagram. Participation is a very relaxed commitment on a month by month basis. Simply email marketing@cliquekits.com by the 15th of the month to have your credits recorded. Subscribers may earn 5 credits (1 credit=$1) for each month they participate. If you end up not participating- we lash you with wet noodles. (Kidding.) We simply skip over your points that month. Credits are cumulative as long as you are still a subscriber! Sound good so far?

What do you do once you sign up? This is really straightforward too. We hope this step by step instruction covers what you do, who is eligible to win a prize, and what the prizes are.

Step 1: Take pictures of projects you created using the monthly kit (please use a minimum of 80% kit and add on products so that the inspiration provided for the Clique is kit-focused.) You can do this anytime during the month- but be sure your photos post before 10 am CST on Pep Rally Day.

Step 2: On or before Pep Rally day, join the event on Facebook and Instagram by sharing on Facebook with your friends and tagging them on Instagram letting them know that each name tagged is entered to win a gift certificate to spend in the CK shop!

Step 3: Use the Instagram search tool with the keywords specified in the Hashtags and enjoy the eye candy! Leave some love for all your friends!

Step 4: Tune in to Clique Kits for announcements of the monthly Pep Rally participant winner selected to win an additional $10 product credit to spend in the Clique Kits store!

And without further ado, here are the hashtags. The first 3 are the same every month. The last two will obviously change each month.

Hi everyone. I’ve been waiting since May to scrapbook these adorable alpacas. The Sundance kit was perfect for these photos. I love the patterns in this collection and decided to use a variety of patterns for the background of my layout. I love patterned paper…

 

One of my favorite types of die cuts is frames. I love creating a collage of photos to print them on a smaller scale to use on my layout. This tip works perfectly for printing small photos just small enough to fit within the frames.

I layered the frames side by side then used a few die cuts, acrylic and stickers to decorate the frames.

Since I ran out of space to actually hand-journal on this layout, I used the sticker words to help share my story!

Thanks for visiting today!

Hello friends! I have a fun mixed media layout to share with you today using some watercolor paints from Shimmerz Paints and stamps from Altenew. And of course, all of the other gorgeous papers and embellishments used are from the September Sundance kit. LOVE this kit. It’s so pretty and it’s perfect for scrapbooking those special outdoors events.

I used a some watercolor paints in the colors of beige, blue and green to draw different paint stroke lines down the page and across the page to create a fun background for my layout. While I was trying to figure out how to incorporate the tiny circle stickers on my layout, I found a button in my stash that was the perfect size for the sticker!

I cut some flowers from the patterned paper to use as a die cut on my layout. I needed some flowers and that blue flower in the patterned is gorgeous!

I splashed some gold paint onto the layout too. I love how much a touch of gold makes this layout pop. Such a fun, happy layout.

The tiny word stickers fit within the sticker banners perfectly! I always like using sticker banners with some kind of sentiment so I made these stickers work for me!

Yearbook – 6 Kits

13708352_10206587466700644_3123589168410663782_o

Hello! Here Réka is today with you, and I have a layout with multiple pictures to share, featuring the gorgeous ’Sundance’ Traveler’s Notebook Kit.

I think I am not the only one who takes a photo of your own kit. On this layout I have documented my last 6 kits which have arrived to me.

Let’s see my layout.

0-0

Firstly, I have created one rosette using the Bon Voyage 4×6 Paper from Pretty Little Studios: Wish You Were Here Collection and I added the Clique Kits sticker on it and this was the title of my layout. After I have put the photos around the rosette and I have also embroidered them around. For the photos I have adhere the month words from the January 2016 printable.

6

I have cut some stripes of fringe patterned paper and I also used my fringe scissors to add more texture to it and finally I sewed then at the top and the bottom part of my layout with my sewing machine.

4

The last step was to add some embellishment from the ’Stop Here’ and the ’On the Go Word’ Stickers. I have fussy cut the leaves from the September’s printables. I really love these colors of these leaves as you may know from my previous post.

I love seeing this 6 kits together.

Hopefully, I managed to inspire you to using multiple pictures on your page. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! See you next time. Réka

Designer in the Spotlight-Ashley Horton

Hello Clique Fans!  Erica here with you today to bring you our Designer in the Spotlight!  Our September Travelers Notebook kit features the Wish You Were Here collection designed by the super talented Ashley Horton!

We are so excited to have Ashley as our Designer in the Spotlight!  You can find Ashley’s collections at Pretty Little Studio and also her fabulous cut files and digital products at The Cut Shoppe!  You can check out Ashley’s blog HERE for a ton of inspiration!

 

 

We want to thank Ashley for taking the time out of her busy day to share a little bit about herself with us!  So grab your drink of choice, curl up in your favorite place and say HELLO to the fabulous Ashley Horton!

What are 3 of your must have tools?

Silhouette Cameo, sewing machine and tape runner

Who are some of your favorite designers?

Paige Evans, Flora Farkas and Zsoka Marko

What inspired you to design the Wish You Were Here collection?

I wanted to do a travel collection, that include a lot of bright colors and different travel icons. And my biggest inspiration came from the super-cute llama that’s a part of the collection!

Favorite movie – The King & I

Favorite color- Yellow

Favorite book- Anne of Green Gables

Favorite food- Fish/Shrimp Tacos

What are your trend predictions for 2018? Do you think we will still see pineapples and flamingos?

It’s always hard to predict what will show up in the paper crafting world, but I think it would be fun to see some collections that reflect the farmhouse look that is so popular in home decor right now. And I wouldn’t mind, if the pineapples and flamingos stick around, because let’s face it, they are always fun to use!

Thanks for connecting with our readers Ashley!  Shrimp tacos are some of my favorite too! Yum!!  Ashley has also created a fun cut file to share with our readers and a couple spreads in her Travelers Notebook using her Wish You Were Here collection!   This file is perfect to use in your travelers notebook or scrapbook layouts and you can download it HERE for free!

Love that llama die cut and how the cut file is the perfect size for the travelers notebook!!  We would love to see how you use this free cut file so make sure to tag Clique Kits and The Cut Shoppe in your projects!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Make sure to follow the Clique Kits blog and Ashley Horton for more inspiration using the September Sundance Travelers Notebook kit and the Wish You Were Here collection!  Enjoy the rest of your day!

Yearbook – Let’s Go

Hello! It’s Réka and today I’m sharing my latest layout with you from my yearbook, using the ’Sundance’ Traveler’s Notebook Kit. One of my favorite part of the kit is the embellisment which I really love using.

ck-sep17-tnkit-9_1_orig

For my layout I have printed my photo in A4 size on the white cardstock which became the base of it.

I have created one vertical cluster with some embellishments from the top to the bottom, at middle part of my layout. I have used the Let’ s go and hearts die cuts from the Pretty Little Studios: Wish You Were Here collection and some stickers, also  from the same collection which came with the kit. The flowers, which were fussy cut out of one PL card from the main September’s printables also went on my layout. The Journey word was cut the stars green paper from the Pretty Little Studios: Wish You Were Here 4×6 Paper Pack with my cameo.

Finally, I have made a little pocket on the back side of the page and I have put in one tag from the Pretty Little Studio Baggage Claim Shipping Tags package and I can write this day’s story here.

I love using the hidden comment on my layout and now I am doing this.
