Hello, friends! Maryám here to share with you a closer look of the layout I made for the challenge of this month. If you didn’t see it, the challenge for this month is all about highlighting fun ways to use the plaid washi tape that came in this month’s kit. We also have an optional sketch created by Kristine Davidson. Check out all the details about the challenge here.
When I got my kit I had no idea of how to use the washi tape but after some hours thinking I decided to put it on a white cardstock and punch some circles and then cut it in half to create some cute garlands for my page. I really liked the result I got.
Here is my final page:
Here are some close-ups:
I hope you liked my page and I can not wait to see what you will create with the washi tape of this month. Don’t forget to join our facebook group to participate in our challenge.
Hello, Friends! Maryám here to share my last project using the beautiful Malibu 2017 kit. I still have a lot pieces from the kit, so I’m going to continue making more layouts with my kit. For today’s project, I’m going to show you how to make a shaker card.
I love shaker cards, and when I saw the beautiful sequin mix that came with the kit, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to do it.
Here is the card I made:
Here are some close-ups of the card: Don’t you think the sequins look perfect?
Here is the process video of my card. So, if you want to learn how to make a shaker card, please watch the video:
I hope you liked my project. If you have any question, please put them down below.
Hey, dear friends! So happy to be back with you today. For today’s project, I’m going to be using my traveler’s notebook + my main kit, but you can also use the Traveler’s Notebook kit of this month.
I created two-page spread project. On the left side, I put the photo, the journaling, and some really cute embellishments from the ephemera pack. I also added some sequins from the exclusive mix and a few holographic stars.
On the right side, I covered the page with the pattern paper N° 3 and on the bottom part, I added a label from the printables of this month + a holographic sun.
Here are a few close-ups:
I hope you liked this project, and don’t forget to follow us on social media to be the first in seeing the new stuff coming up to our shop. See you tomorrow.
Hello, friends! Maryám here again to share another layout made using the Malibu kit 2017. For the main element of my layout, I used an old cut file from CK and I cut it on the paper N°8 with my Silhouette Cameo, and then I added some hand-stitching to it.
Here is the result: What I’ve done basically was add a bunch of embellishments around the wreath, then put my photo, the journaling and at the end add some watercolor splatters. You will see the haul of the process in the video at the end of the post.
Here are some close-ups:
Here is the process video. If you have any questions just let me know.
Hello CK friends! Today I’m going to share a layout using the beautiful Agust 2017 Malibu kit. This month we have a lot of digital exclusives, and of course, I had to use them!
Here is my layout: I used the beautiful scallop cut file as my background and I backed it with the paper N° 10. After that, I put my photo, I created two clusters of embellishments around my photo, adhered my title and the journaling and at the end, I added some splatters and some sequins.
Here are some close-ups:
I hope you liked my layout. If you have any questions about my page, just let me know in the comments below.
One of the things I love about the monthly kits is their exclusive cut files and printables. You can find all of them here.
For my layout, I used one of this month’s exclusives. The Floral Crown cut file.
Before showing my layout, I want to share how I “weed” through cut files especially intricate ones like the Floral Crown cut file.
I use a spatula like the one in the image to lift each cut carefully. I find this very helpful especially when I use a new mat (it’s super sticky compared to mats that have been used several times already).
I love how my layout turned out with the cut file and fussy cut flowers and butterflies. The watercolor effect in the Wild at Heart collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio is just beautiful!
I lined up the series of photos in the middle and I used scraps of thin cardboard to add a bit of height to them. I also added some messy threads under the photos.
This rubber charm is just so pretty!
That’s all from me today!
I hope you liked my project today and don’t forget to check out more cut files and printables in the store!
Hope you all are getting lots of inspiration from all the beautiful projects created with the beautiful Aquarelle Kit. This month’s kit is gorgeous, and it features the beautiful “Wild at Heart” collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. You want to get your hands on this kit!
I was drawn to all the watercolor floral designs from the collection, and knew that i would be fussy cutting a large number of them for one of my projects. For this layout, I chose to document one of the many pictures of our Mother’s Day weekend by creating a large shaker element, and framing it with flowers and exclusive printables from this month’s Aquarelle main kit. So sit down, and enjoy the video on how this layout came together:
I chose a large picture with lots of negative space for this layout. First I created a shaker element, by stitching together a circle of light pink/coral cardstock, a same size vellum circle, and the outline of the circle (made of white cardstock) together. Before closing the shaker element, a bit of the Sorbet Kit sequin mix was added to the inside of the pocket, especially the large flowers in the sequin mix.
The Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s “Artisan” paper serves as the base for this layout. A little bit of white acrylic paint behind the shaker element helps bring out the colors in the sequin and the flowers that frame the picture.
To frame the picture, and the shaker element, floral designs were cut from the “Patchwork”, “Luscious”, “Memento” papers (all included in the main Aquarelle Kit), and then glued behind the pocket circle and the large picture.
The Pinkfresh Studio Alphas included in the Aquarelle kit are so easy to incorporate to all types of projects. Since there is a large white space in the picture, the title was glued straight on the picture right at the larger floral cluster. A small fussy cut butterfly from the “Mariposa” paper completes the title. After adding the journal lines, a few gold ink splatters complete this project. Here is the final layout:
Don’t you just love all the colorful florals in this month’s Aquarelle kit? Oh, I am in love with this kit ( and I think, tears were shed when I fussy cut the papers, they are just too beautiful!!). Remember there is only a few kits left for sale at the Clique Store, so run to the store to get one of the kits.
I am always a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.
Happy Sunday everyone! This year is just scooting on by. Can you believe we are sharing the June Mood Board and kit already? For me, June is the start of summer, lake season and warm weather. Living in a northern climate where it is cold majority of the year, I bask in the 3 months that we really “celebrate” summer. I love the sunshine during the day and the birds chirping, I love the evening when you can celebrate with friends on an outdoor patio or bon fire in the back yard or at the lake. I love weekends hanging out with friends and family, going on boat rides, playing yard games and grilling. What are your favorite parts of a warm climate?
We have titled the June Kit: Aquarelle. This kit reminds me of a garden party, floral crowns, and evenings under the stars. What is your favorite part of this mood board?
Of course I can’t leave without sharing some SNEAK PEEKS of both our Main Kit and our Travelers Notebook Kit.

Hello Everyone! Here is Réka again. Today, I’m sharing my projects using the beautiful Sorbet Main Kit. My favorite parts of this kit are the puffy stickers, the die cuts, the buttons, the papers … All right, OK, well… the truth is I love the whole kit.
Do you know that every Clique Kit contains exclusive digital printables, don’t you? This month Maryám designed the wonderful printables which you can find here. This time I’ve printed it on the vellum paper and I really love the outcome. This idea comes from Gia.
Now let us see my layout! I’ve chosen a photo about my homemade cupcake and I wanted to document this memory because it was the first time when I’ve used carrots for cupcakes and the result was really delicious. The cupcake is my favorite type of cake that’s why I’ve decided to put FAVORITE word on my layout, from Pretty Little Studio, this arrived with the kit together. I ’ve also used some puffy stickers and die cuts from Pinkfresh Studio. Additionally, some pieces of the vellum printable, enamels and labels and one button also have gone to my layout.At the end, I’ve added some yellow mists and my layout is done.
My first thought was to put the recipe of the carrot cupcake below the photo, but it was to long. And at that moment a new idea just came to mind, I would put this layout in my yearbook so I’ve started to create the second page for the receipt.
Firstly, I’ve printed the recipe of the carrot cupcake on the white cardstock. The recipe is in Hungarian which is my native language. Then I’ve added some pieces of the same patterned paper which was the base of the other layout and a few stickers, enamels and yellow mists. For the title I’ve used the alphabet stamps set from Latina Crafter who is the sponsor of this month’s challenge. You can find more information about the monthly challenge here. Both of two pages I was stitching a little bit with yellow thread which is my favorite technic on the layout. Let’s see the next page.
Here are some close-ups.
Finally here are the two pages together.
Hopefully, I managed to inspire you to document your favorite recipe. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful crafty day. See you next month.
Hello friends! Maryám here again to share another layout using the April 2017 kit. If you want to get this kit, just click here, we still have a few left.
For this layout, the first thing that I did was cut a cut file on my Silhouette Cameo. Then I took my watercolors and I used the “packaging” tecnique to do some big watercolor splatters of pink and yellow color.
After that, it’s time to do the funniest part, yes! Embellish the page. I put some flowers, stamped a instax camera from an Altenew stamp that I got from the shop, added some enamel shapes and some stickers from Freckled Fawn.
And for the cut file, I backed it with one of the project life cards that I designed for the kit, with vellum paper, and also with one of the Paige Evans paper.
Here is the result:
Here are some close-ups:
For the title I used one of the words from Freckled Fawn, and the white alpha from Elle’s Studio, but as you can see it’s not white, that’s because I painted it with a gold pen from one of our previous Traveler’s Notebook kit.
I hope you liked this layout. If you have any questions about this project just let me a comment below. Thanks for stopping by!
