Geek Lab: Adventure Card

Hi friends,

Melissa here with you today and it’s a bittersweet post! This is my last one… not just for this current kit but also for my term as a design team member. I have absolutely loved my time here with Clique Kits but, I had to make the decision. I love designing and teaching and empowering other creative types but, it’s time to take a break from DT’s and focus on me and what I want to do. I’m looking forward to no deadlines and such. But, I will say, this team will be one I will miss. I hope you know that Clique Kits has a GREAT things here. Beautiful kits (will always be my favorite), amazing inspiration (I’m excited to see what the next team does) and a fun community (have you joined us on Facebook yet?)

For my last card with you all, I wanted to, once again, show you a card using the gorgeous cut files that are exclusive to the CK kits. I loved the fall leaves square but, was more drawn to the individual leaves. In my head, I pictured utilizing the circle stickers and then embellishing with the leaves. It turned out better than I even thought. I hope you like it too. Here is the finished card a few close ups:


I also used the little asterisk shaped cut files that were part of that square. I actually like the texture they bring with the tone on tone of the white cardstock. I was equally excited when I realized you can see them in the photo too!


How cute do those leaves look??? They really add the perfect amount of texture and help the card have a bit of interest. Those stickers are fabulous but, when in a pinch for that “one more thing”, cut files are the best!

I decided to hand write the first part of the sentiment on to one of the stickers. I just could not find the right alpha in my stash or anywhere else so, handwriting it is. Thankfully, I do like my handwriting!


Thanks for joining me here today!

The past year has definitely been an adventure I have enjoyed and I’m also looking forward to moving on! See you around!



Yearbook: Reach for the sky.


Hi Everyone! Réka here today to share a 8,5”x11” layout I created with this month’s „POOL PARTY” Traveler’s Notebook Kit.


Here’s what I came up with…


When I saw the very pretty blue paper from Pretty Little Studio: Ain’t Life Grand – 4 x 6 Paper collection I knew I would like to use for my next page and my pigeon’s picture is perfect for it.

I’ve edited the ’Reach for the sky’ title with the Silhouette Studio program and after I’ve cut it out of the white cardstock and I’ve backed it up the blue paper.


I’ve also added some word stickers from Pretty Little Studio: Ain’t Life Grand collection. I really loved to use these cute word stickers which it have completed my main title. When it was ready I’ve also splattered some green watercolour with my brush on the page.


The fussy cut flowers and the enamel dots were used to create a little clusters on the left and the right side of the photo.


I wanted to make my page excited a bit in that way I made the photo flipable and one more photo was added on the page.


I’ve decorated it with some element from the September’s printable file.


Some machine stitching and the date were the finishing touches to complete my layout.


I hope you enjoy my layout and thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful crafty day! See you soon! Réka



Locker Room: Naples


Hello everybody! Elisabetta here to show you the first layout I made with the gorgeous August Kit. 🙂

This picture was taken in Naples, one of the most beautiful italian cities! I went there with my friend Francesca in April. It rained almost all weekend (the picture was taken in one of the rare moments when the sun was shining) but we enjoyed it anyway. 🙂


The thing that I love the most about this layout are those gorgeous flowers that I cut from a paper that’s included in the kit. I absolutely adore every kind of flowered paper and I find it so relaxing to cut the flowers and use them as embellishments on my pages. 🙂


Another great thing about the kit are the Fancy Pants bows!! I adore them 😀 this gold is just perfection, isn’t it?


I can’t wait to see what you’re going to create with this kit, I’m having so much fun with it at the moment!! I’ll see you tomorrow with another post, thank you for looking. 🙂



Yearbook: Birthday


Hello everyone. 🙂 Elisabetta here to show you a new layout!! As soon as I saw the cut apart paper with the 4×4 squares on it, that’s part of the kit, I knew that I wanted to cut them in order to create a grid layout!

I wanted this page to be simple and not too busy. I added just a few embellishments.


Wood veneers are one of my favorite items this month. I used them all and they are perfect for every page! I bet you’re loving them too. 🙂

There are a lot of fun texts on the 4×4 cut parts and they are perfect for every occasion. You can use them on a grid layout as I did, or in an Instagram album that you can find in the shop!

I hope I’ve inspired you to use this paper in a fun way! Have a great day scrappy friends 🙂

Oh happy, happy first day of December!!  For many of us, holiday traditions are in full swing beginning today; Elf on the Shelf, 12 Days of Christmas, Advent, an annual Christmas tree hunt or just a good ‘ol fashion countdown to Christmas with your family!!  This season also brings us what has come to be known as the December Daily, which always seemed daunting and overwhelming to me.  It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong.  I just cannot see myself documenting something for everyday.  So instead, Clique Kits has created their kit this year, Clique into the Holidays!!  This kit is truly, December your way and I love it!!  Here are some pages from my Clique into the Holidays mini album where I’ll be adding photos of us trimming the tree, baking cookies, pulling goodies out of our Advent Calendar, reading Christmas stories and more!  Here are a few close ups of the kit itself.

And here are some of my Clique into the Holidays album pages!  One thing I love to do in my mini albums is to vary my pages sizes and shapes to add lots of visual interest and texture.  Doing this really makes a mini album interesting, interactive and chunky!  The chunkier the better when it comes to mini albums, I say.

Falling leaves

Hi everyone! Nicole here with my very first Clique Kits post. Ah, what a fabulous kit we have here this month. I love the rich colors in the Masquerade Ball kit featuring lots of Basic Grey goodies. When I first saw the kit, I immediately thought of those fun fall photos that I took last year.This month, I chose to play in the “Locker Room”. I spent more hours than I can count in the Locker Room trying to determine what fun technique I could experiment with so when I looked over in the corner of the locker room and spotted a pile of die cuts and stickers scattered on the floor, I though, oh no. Who let that kid in here?I picked those babies up and put them on my desk and started scrapping. Really, it’s no surprise that I would reach for the die cuts because they are one my favorite embellishments aside from flairs stickers. Did I mention that I LOVE die cuts?  I use them on the majority of my layouts because they are great for filling in empty spaces. Sometimes, I’ll look at a layout and think it’s missing something and I’ll pull out my pop dots and die cuts and go to town.

Before I began, I knew that I wanted to scrap a few different photos so the first thing I did was cut two patterned papers into 8 1/2″x11″ and 7 1/2″x10″ rectangles. Then I matted the smaller rectangle to the larger rectangle. After this, I cut the “life is good” die cut card from the patterned paper.

Then, I had a hard time deciding on a layout design that would fit all three photos without feeling too cluttered. So I simply moved the photos around the page to get some ideas. Once I was pleased with the arrangement, I adhered the photos to the paper.

Using transparencies can be tricky, but they don’t have to be. I simply staple my transparency die cuts right onto the layout.

I created this cute little embellishment simply by combining a leaf die cut, transparency die and a flair sticker. Love!
Since I didn’t want to use the entire die cut shape for my layout, I simply cut the journaling block out and adhered it to my layout once I completed my journaling. I tend to cut die cuts often to make them work for my project that I’m working with.
And sometimes, I will use a pop dot to make my stickers pop off the page. It’s a great way to add dimension to any projects while at the same time, eliminating that “flat” look. Most of the time, I wait until the very last minute to lay down my stickers because once they are on the layout, you can’t take them off.
And here is my final layout. I have to admit, I just love it to pieces. What can I say, fall is my favorite season of the year!
