Geek Lab: Loco Squad


IMG_4498 copia

hello everyone! Elisabetta here today to show you one of my favorite layouts that I’ve created lately 🙂


I love this month’s printables, especially the labels and the circles, so I decided to create a layout that was all about the LABELS! 🙂


I cut them and placed them on the left side of the page with the picture and then I embellished the page using stickers, diecuts, alphas and tag that we got in the kit!


how cute is this aqua flair? 🙂


I love all the bright colors of the kit! they look great with my photo, that was taken back in March, as I was spending Easter holidays with my mom at our beach house. “Loco Squad” is the name of one of our favorite restaurants there, we love how they cook 😀


don’t forget to download your monthly printables and cut files, I’m sure you’ll have a lot of fun with them! I really hope that you feel inspired to create beautiful layouts, thank you for stopping by, I’ll see you soon :*




Geek Lab: Digital Stamps on pictures from your phone!


If you are a Clique Kit’s subscriber did you know you get extra access online in your account that is FREE???!!!!!!

There are cut and printable files designed specifically for each kit!  I use them frequently but not the way you think.  This blog post I will teach you how to add digital stamps using CK printable files, RIGHT ON YOUR PHONE!

I use my phone to take, edit and print all my pictures! Every single picture for the past 5 years has been taken using my phone and I can assure you it probably will be that way for another 5 years.

Here is my final layout!  We will be adding the ‘flawless’ stamp with the tutorial

You’ll need:

a smart phone (Android OR Apple)

Download ‘Dropbox’

Download ‘Picsart’ (on android AND apple)

Let’s get started!

  • sign into your CK account on your phone. Go to Header the Clique, then Monthly Downloads

  • Since we are working on January it’s there for me.  Most likely you’ll have December’s there but It really doesn’t matter.  The process is the same and in the same place every month. Click ‘download file’

  • once it is downloaded – click on the file it should ask you to unzip for you .

  • Upload all the files to a Dropbox.  I usually put each month in it’s own folder and then at the years end, I put it in a year folder.

  • Open Picsart, and open the picture you would like to add a digital stamp to.

  • Click Add Photo

  • Pick the digital stamp you’d like to use from the Drobox icon

  • This is the one I have chosen. Notice all the files are .png.  That means that the background they are made on is invisible and therefore the perfect match with layering with a photo.

  • Move it around on the screen when you’d like it, change it’s size or opacity and viola!  You have a digital stamp on a picture.  Don’t forget to save it then print away!!!

  • One last thing that I do every month is to print out a sheet with a picture of each of the files I have downloaded.  That way I see what digital journal cards, script, stamps or elements are in my personal electronic file folders! For more information about that, visit this blog post 🙂


This app does not shrink the size of the .png no matter how large so it won’t be fuzzy. Digital stamps always turn out so crisp when you print the picture!

Hope you use those freebies from Clique Kits often!




Using the Printables in the Kit


Hello everyone!  It’s Marcia here today in the Geek Lab and I’m very excited to be on the Clique Kits blog sharing a layout I created with our fabulous October kit, Masquerade Ball!  I just love all the colors and patterns in the Second City paper collection by Basic Grey. I also love the digital Print and Cut files that were included in the kit. These are tangibles you can use over and over again even after your kit papers are gone.

I thought I would focus on triangles in this layout about a favorite place we like to go to eat with my daughter when we visit her at college. It is just off the campus where she attends school in Minneapolis. Now because I hate my writing, I prefer to journal on my layouts using my computer. So I used one of the printables from the kit to create a journaling spot. I did this with Adobe Photoshop Elements. Here’s how…

and here is my layout…


Repeating shapes throughout gives my layout a cohesive feel. It pulls everything together. Here are some close-ups…





So lets see you use those Print and Cut files. We would love for you to share them with us.
