Soak Up The Sun | Yearbook

Hellooooo! Steph here again with another Travelers Notebook project for you!! Have you signed up for this kit yet?? Because it’s amazing!! CLICK HERE for more info on it. 😉

IMG_4661

For this layout I balanced both pages with strips of pattern paper at the top and bottom. Keeping the colors light and airy, I chose a color scheme that worked well with my black and white photo and was available within my kit. I think this blue distressed woodgrain pattern paper may be my favorite. 🙂

IMG_4663

I used the left side of my layout for journaling and kept it simple so it didn’t get too busy. Then my photograph and title went on the right page.

I loved this giant phrase die cut!! So cute!!

I hope you are all enjoying your summers!! Have you created with the Travelers Notebook kit yet? How do you like it??

Field Notes – Fun in the sun

ck-field-notes-traveler-notes-header

Hello! Here Réka is today with you, and I have traveler’s notebook spreads to share, featuring the gorgeous ‘POOL PARTY’ Traveler’s Notebook Kit!

ck-jun17-tnkit2_4_orig

When I got my Kit I thought a lot how to use the insert, maybe to organize my days as a planner or to write my favorite recipe on it but finally I have decided that I will be document our summer stories.

1-1

The ‘Fun in the sun’ cute file is perfect for every summer stories so I have cut it out of the pink paper with arrows pattern from Pretty Little Studio: Ain’t Life Grand – 4 x 6 Paper collection and adhered them onto my page. After I have used my favorite pink thread and I have embroidered them around. When you use a thin paper for the embroidery base like this you need to be careful, don’t let the paper tear and if you don’t push hard the needle, you can get lazier stitch as me now and yes, I really love it.

3

Next, the flowers, which were fussy cut out of a Pretty Little Studio: Ain’t Life Grand – 4 x 6 flowers pattern Paper and I have made some clusters on my pages. I love these flowers and every piece is hoard.

Some mists, words, the gorgeous pink camera ephemera and the cute ‘Ice cream’ clip went on my spread. You can find more clips in the shop here and remember you can use the code SHOP to get 30% off your total purchase.

This page is the summary page so I have printed the title of the first story on the vellum paper and adhered on it. I will fill in the blank page continuously with the next stories` titles which we will be collecting this summer.

2

Now, let’s see the next page.

4-4

For the left side I added my photo which was layered some paper and on the other side I have used the Hello card from the Pretty Little Studio: Ain’t Life Grand – 3 x 4 Cards collection. I have also used some beautiful flowers and the words stickers and the always title, which arrived with the kit.

5

Behind the Hello card I have put one tag from the June printable collection and I have written the funny story on it. I have attached with a white thread and made a little bow from it. Some mists and some enamels were the finishing touches to complete my spread.

6

I hope you enjoy my traveler’s notebook spreads and collect the summer stories. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful crafty day! Réka

Field Notes – Punches and Mixed Media

CK- Field Notes -traveler notes - headerHello, Clique fans! Enza here today to share a new Traveler’s Notebook spread. Look at all the fabulous goodies in the July Pool Party Travelers Notebook kit!

ck-jun17-tnkit2_4_orig

I went back to my good ol’ punches again. This is a floral border one from Martha Stewart that I have had in my stash for quite a while. The idea was to create a colorful background using different patterned paper from the Ain’t Life Grand collection featured in the kit.

egudor_July2nd_FieldNotes

egudor_July2nd_FieldNotes_CloseUp1

On the opposite side of the page, I used a mixed media paper from Kaisercraft that came in the May Sorbet kit. After cutting it to fit, I simply colored it with a mini ink blending tool and shades of ink that matched the colors in the papers. One of the sentiments from the collection served as my title, which was placed in the center of the page and backed with some thread for added texture.

egudor_July2nd_FieldNotes_CloseUp5

I layered the photo with a mix of patterned papers. The journaling, as well as some sentiments, were typed and then cut into strips.

Field Notes – MY PERSONAL JOURNAL

CK- Field Notes -traveler notes - header

Hello Clique Kits friends!

Nathalie here with a new entry to my personal journal (aka my TN) using pieces from the beautiful “Aquarelle” kit, and a few other goodies from the Clique Kits Store.

sneak1

Most of you know that I keep a personal journal, which i use as my Project Life/ daily documenter method.  Though there is days that only writing appears on the page, there are those other times when you  need to include pictures.  I have kept a journal for a long time, so i am always trying to come up with new ideas for my entries – “Life is all about variety”-.  Here is one of the entries from a few weeks ago  after attending a 65th birthday party for a very good close friend of the family!

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-2

Our friend Martha loves flowers, so i set to create  a background for the page using the  Daisy  Layering Stamp from Altenew -which i picked from the Clique Store-.   For these flowers, I pulled a few archival inks, as well as some Hampton Arts inks from my stash, and stamped the flowers on a lightweight watercolor paper cut to the size of my TN page.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-3

I tried my best to leave the center of the stamped page clear, so  the eye is drawn to the center of the page.  For this page, I pulled more goodies from the Clique Store -you should really check all the goodies available for sale at the store- in this case i am using Pink Paislee’s C’est La Vie Acetate letters, and the clear stickers to create the title of this page.  I paired them with some of the Aquarelle TN kit exclusive printables, and a piece of the branding  strip of the Wild at Heart collection papers.   I just love how the black in the title pops from the page.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-4

Before gluing the page down to the TN, I cut a piece of vellum to fit the TN size, leaving about 3/4 in extra along the short side of the piece -the vellum measured 8×5 in for this spread-.  I marked with a bone folder the extra space of the vellum.  Before attaching it to the TN, i stitched one of the cards included in the Aquarelle TN kit, and added my sentiment.  Then glued the extra flap from the vellum piece to the TN, and added the stamped page on top of the vellum flap glued to the page.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-6

Before completely stitching the  card to the vellum, i added one of the stamped images – i created some extra flowers, and fussy cut them- , some of the large flower sequin from the May kit releases, and a few gold flower sequin from my stash.  I just love that little shaker pocket, and surprise as you turn the page.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-7

I took so many pictures of the celebration that day, but wanted to keep the focus of the page on Martha and her family ( we are very close friends of the entire familly), so I created a film strip of some of the pictures, layered a bit of the tissue paper that the kits come wrapped with, and glued it to the center of a piece of copy paper cut to the TN size.  Here, all the rest of the fussy cut flowers were used to frame the picture strip.  I pulled one of the fabric labels from the Aquarelle kit  – i was lucky to receive the “Birthday Wishes” in my kit-, and one of the copper asterisks from the Alpha set.

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_ JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-5

All Clique Kits are always loaded with lots of goodies that make their way to my stash, so i pulled some of the stickers from the Love Always kit  -which sold out-, and added them to one of the clusters of this page.  I love how this spread came together (sorry no video this time!),  the beautiful stamped flowers worked perfect to document this lovely lady on her 65th birthday.

There are so many products available at the Clique Store that have been carefully curated to match all the kits, so stop by to check most of the products used in this spread, and many more for some beautiful upcoming kits.  As always I am a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.

See you all soon!

Field Notes: Beautiful

Hey friends! It’s Maryám here and today I’m going to share with you a traveler’s notebook spread using the beautiful June 2017 printables designed by Sheryl Banares, and also some stuff from the shop.

On the right side of the spread I created a cluster of embellishments, and over the tags I put my journaling that I previously wrote with my typewriter.

Here are some details:

To embellish the cluster I added some butterflies, enamel dots, puffy stickers and some rubber shapes.

On the other side I put a big photo with a flower and tiny word from the printables on the top.

I had already used the photo of my spread in another layout, but I decided to print it again in a bigger version because I like that photo so much!

I hope you liked my project and don’t forget to use the AMAZING printables of this month, and don’t forget to check our shop to see more fun stuff.

Have a wonderful day!

Field Notes | My Personal Journal

CK- Field Notes -traveler notes - header

 

Hello crafty friends!!

Nathalie here with  some new entries on my personal journal -my TN- inspired by the beautiful Aquarelle kits (main and TN).   This month’s TN kit features the beautiful “Wildflower” collection from Kaisercraft, as well as plenty of embellishments, and exclusive printables that make memory keeping so easy and pleasurable.

 

Aquarelle TN

 

Since the weather is finally changing here in Toronto, I am taking advantage of long doggie walks around the Humber River path behind my house.  The papers in the Aquarelle TN kit were perfect to document the beauty of Spring in the city.  Here is a small video on how this page came together:

 

 

It took less than 10 minutes to put this page together.   I picked one of the papers in the kit, and used both sides to cover both pages of the TN ( each page features a side of the paper).

 

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-4

 

I picked my 3 favorite pictures of the walk, and printed them in a film strip form using Lightroom.  This was then glued to one of the pages of the TN -i chose the one with a less busy pattern on it-.   Pieces from the Aquarelle TN Kit’s die cuts and exclusives were used to decorate the page

 

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-3

 

The exclusive printables in this month’s Aquarelle TN kit  are perfect to add small details around the page.  In this particular case,  one of the cards houses all the details of my walk around the river path.  Here is the final spread:

 

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-2

 

The color combination of the papers in the Aquarelle TN Kit was perfect to document all this Spring memories, and it took less than 10 minutes to complete the spread.  It is that easy to work with this kit.

 

If you are a subscriber to both  Main and TN kits, then this month’s pizza box  is going to be a dream for all memory keepers. Since you can easily incorporate bits and pieces from both kits in your projects.    Here is an example of how I combined pieces of both kits to complete the spread of our favorite Mother’s Day portrait, just sit down, and enjoy the video:

 

 

 

We love this picture, and i  wanted it to be prominent on my memory keeping system, so I chose to enlarge the image to fit the entire TN spread.    First i cut the picture in half so that i can easily glue to the TN.

 

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-11

 

 

Before gluing the right side of the picture, a small pocket was created behind the picture, so that it can hold a tag  (from the Aquarelle main kit exclusive printables) with all the journal lines about this memory.

 

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-10

 

To complete embellishing this page, one of the fabric tags, included in the Aquarelle main kit, along with a die cut from the TN kit were glued to the top corner of the left side of the page.  The arrow clip was then used to hold these pieces together,  and a small asterisk from the main kit Alphas complete this cluster.

 

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-9

 

 

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-8

 

Finally one of the labels from the Aquarelle TN kit’s exclusive printables was used to add the date and place of the picture.  The copper Pinkfresh Studio alphas was then used to create the title of this page.  Here is the complete spread:

 

CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-7

 

This is by far one of my favorite spreads of the past 2 weeks in my spread.  The texture from the different embellishments from both Aquarelle kits just adds the perfect touches to the picture.  If you haven’t checked the kits, there are still a few available at the Clique store, and you better rush to pick yours.

Remember i am a comment away if you have any questions on how these came together.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Field Notes – My Personal Journal

CK- Field Notes -traveler notes - header

Hello Clique Friends!

Nathalie here bringing you a few entries of my personal journal created using the beautiful ( it is truly a gorgeous!)  Aquarelle main kit.  This month’s kit features  Cocoa Vanilla’s “Wild at Heart” collection which is full of florals, watercolor motives, and lots of beautiful designs.  If you haven’t checked the Aquarelle kit, yet, then you better run to the Clique Store to pick the few available for sale.

 

sneak1

 

Did you know that there is a large library of cut files and printables available for purchase at the Clique Store?  I happen to visit the store, and combined the  printables from the September 2015 kit with the the Aquarelle kit to create a spread about this year’s NSD. Here is  a small video on how the page came together:

 

 

The picture (of the day) was enlarged to fit into one of the pages of the TN (4.25×8.25 in).  After gluing it to the page, I added a few pieces (Pinksfresh Studio Alphas, and CK printables)  of the Aquarelle kit to the picture.

 

CK_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL 1_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017-2

 

Since the picture has plenty of white space at the bottom, it was the perfect spot to add a few lines about the day’s experience.

 

CK_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL 1_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017-3

 

To balance the page, the large sentiment card in the September 2015 exclusive printables was machine sewn to a piece of white copy paper -cut to the TN’s page size- .

sept. 2015

 

One of the  small tabs was then glued to the card to complete the page, and stamp the date.  Here is the final spread:

 

CK_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL 1_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017

 

The next entry in my personal journal uses the Double Dot paper included in the Aquarelle kit, along with some of the exclusive printables, and Pinkfresh Studio’s Nico stamp ( unfortunately, this stamp has sold out in the  Clique store).   Here is a detailed video on how the spread came together:

 

 

This spread was so easy to create.  First, I found the center point of the TN page, and used it to cut a large triangle (that will cover the other page of the TN) out of the patterned paper.

 

CK_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017-5

 

The title for this spread was created on the paper covered page using a combination of  stamps (Pinkfresh Studio’s Nico alpha, and Simple Stories Faith roller stamp), and the Pinkfresh Studio alphas included in the kit.

 

CK_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL 1_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017-4

 

A few simple exclusive printables was all that was needed to complete this page, and balance the large triangle on the spread.  After a few lines of journal, and a  few more sentiments added with the roller stamp in  Faded Jeans ink -Distress Oxides- , the page was completed.   Here is the final spread:

 

CK_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL 1_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017-7

 

Both pages were created in a really small amount of time (between 10-15 minutes), and I love the different looks, I was able to achieve with the Aquarelle kit, and the CK printables.  

Remember to visit the Clique Store to check all the exclusive printables, cut files, and most materials used in this pages.  You can use the DT codes to receive a discount at checkout.  As always, I am a comment away if you have any questions on how this came together.

 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Yearbook | Be Who You Are

blog-image_yearbook

Hey friends! Stephanie Gold here with you today for a Travelers Notebook layout that’s all about you!!

IMG_4155-imp

So how often do you scrap about yourself?? My answer is never, unless I’m directly instructed to haha. I recently turned 30 and in my effort to combat any aging self-consciousness I decided to create a layout all about myself (in a positive way) using a photo I really liked. That last part can be hard but just find one you feel really beautiful in or one that has such a wonderful memory it gives you the warm fuzzies every time you see it. 🙂

IMG_4156-imp

The title of my post came from the quote,

Be who you are, not who the world wants you to be.

Have you seen the GORGEOUS alpha stickers in the new June kit?!!! I. Am. All. Over. Them. They are seriously the best. {Be sure to check out the kit info here!!}

I decided to chop up one of the journal cards which had positive affirmation words and phrases – and use the ones I resonated with to use as my journaling.

IMG_4160-imp

I kept the whole page simple and I love reflecting on it when I get myself into a funk. Being 30 is awesome and a blessing and I need to remember that!! 🙂 Also, don’t forget to check out the latest kit from Clique Kits, the official Travelers Notebook kit!!

Thanks for stopping by with me!! Much love everyone!

Xo, Stephanie
