Hello everyone, Marcia here today with some more cards to share with you that I created with the December kit Enchanted Meadow. This week I focused on the light bulb icons and brainstormed card sentiments. Here is what I came up with …
I Love You a Whole Watt
Be Merry, Be Bright
You Light Up My Life
You Brighten My Day
Your Future is Bright
I Got an Idea… Let’s Be Together.
By layering the project life cards with each other, or with paper scraps I created these. This one will be great as a graduation card …
This one will be perfect to send to one of my kids in college with a care package.
One for my hubby…Using the clip at the top of the card, I can attach movie tickets or a gift card to a favorite restaurant inside so we can have a date night!
I saved my favorite for last, which would be perfect for any of the guys in my life…
And I still have more light bulbs in my kit to play with! That washi tape I used on my cards is available in the Clique Store by the way.
Share your light bulb sentiments because I would love to hear them.
Hello Clique Kits friends! It’s Marcia here today. I have some cards to share that I created with the Sweet Stamp Shop Sparkle and Shine stamp set that was included in the kit. Since this kit is full of diamond stamps, diamond paper, acrylic diamonds, and even a clique kit exclusive diamond digital cut file, I wanted to brainstorm card ideas (other than wedding which was the first thing that popped into my head). Here are some sentiments I came up with …
“You’re a Gem”
“Congrats on the Shiny New Bling”
“I Think You’re Brilliant”
“You Sparkle & Shine”
and my cards using some of these sentiments and the stamps…
On this card I printed the sentiment using my computer and Microsoft Word software. The font is Lavanderia (one of my favorites) which you can download for free. You can find it here … thefonty.com. dafont.com is another great source for fonts and explains how to install your new font for different operating systems.
and one more…
Can you think of other diamond sentiments? I would love to hear them!
Hello Clique Kits friends! It’s Marcia here today. I wanted to give you some insight into what inspired me for my latest layout. It was this 4×6 journal card from the Echo Park Creative Agenda collection. It reminded me of the musical Rent and that made me think of my brother-in-law Dave who is battling cancer. When you are in a battle for your life, you realize just how precious time is as well as those people we love to spend that time with.
Last Spring, my daughter and I participated in the Minneapolis Bladder Cancer Walk with Dave and lots of friends and family. So I dug out the few pictures I had from the event. Then I looked for a sketch that would work with my photos and journal cards. I found this one at Stuck?! Sketches.
I don’t always use a sketch, but find they are helpful when you need inspiration. Working with multiple photos in a grid design is not typical for me. Every once in a while its good to try something different though. My next step is deciding on what papers and embellishments to use.
But I wanted the emphasis still to be that journal card, so I used my Silhouette to cut the words out of my background paper. It makes a bold statement. Here is my finished layout…
Enchanted Meadow December Clique Kit.
The Good Morning sun was fussy cut from another journal card. Don’t be afraid to cut into your journal cards like this. One of the add-ons for the kit were these fabulous paper clips from Freckled Fawn and I cannot get enough of them.
I spritzed some Heidi Swapp color shine in tinsel on my camera ephemera and layered some chipboard stickers on top. Using foam adhesive adds dimension, making the layers pop.
I used my computer to add my journaling as I don’t especially like my own handwriting.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope I have inspired you today.
Hello Clique Kits friends! It’s Marcia here today in Study Hall and I am very excited to be on the Clique Kits blog today sharing a layout I created with our fabulous December kit, Enchanted Meadow! I just love all the colors and patterns in the September Skies paper collection by Heidi Swapp. I also love the exclusive digital cut files that were included in the kit. Since my daughter just got married I thought this kit would be perfect to document some of those memories.
#HeidiSwapp #SeptemberSkies #EnchantedMeadow #Layout
I combined two of the cut files for my title, cutting one from a glitter adhesive cardstock and the other from black cardstock. I added a little bit of pattern paper to fill the negative space to keep the background from being too distracting. These cut files may appear in the Clique Kits digital store. Keep your eye out if you are interested.
I spritzed some Rose Heidi Swapp Color Shine on my resist flower from the Ephemera pack. Then painted on some Peach Color Shine to give my flower some dimension.
One of the December add ons were these awesome paper clips from Freckled Fawn. I just had to have them. LOVE!
Thanks for stopping by.
