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. 🙂

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!!

Yearbook: Smile

Hello!

Donna here today to share my second project using the June Kit “Aquarelle”.

s254461307115203172_p1805_i1_w1200

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).DSC_6535

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!

I hope you liked my project today and don’t forget to check out more cut files and printables in the store!

Happy crafting,

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!

Yearbook – Out Of This World

13708352_10206587466700644_3123589168410663782_o

Hello, Clique friends! I’m back today with a layout featuring the gorgeous May Sorbet Kit. The colors in this kit are absolutely amazing and the exclusives coordinate beautifully with it.

CK Sorbet Kit

The main inspiration for this layout came from one of the background cut files that will be available in the Clique digital store.ck-may17-storecuts-web3_origI initially intended to use the cut file as it is, but then decided to scatter the different size stars around my pictures and layer them to crate a lot of dimension and texture.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_Out Of This World2

Since the patterned paper I chose as my background is very similar in color to the one I used for the stars, I decided to just use pink acrylic paint to create some contrast. I still wanted my layout to have a soft look, so the light colored paint worked perfectly for it.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_CloseUp3

Some of the stars are cut out of vellum. I love the different texture it adds.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_CloseUp1

Once all the stars were positioned as I liked them around my pictures, I started embellishing. I tend to go for a tone-on-tone look most of the times to make the colors stand out more.

egudor_April20_Yearbook_CloseUp4

For my title, I used another exclusive cut file that will be available with the May Sorbet kit.ck-may17-storecuts-web5_origThe Pink Fresh Studio Reverie paper with its gorgeous blue adds the right pop of color the layout needed.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

Delight | Stephanie

yearbook

Hey friends! Steph here with a fun Yearbook post for you. 🙂 I recently celebrated my 30th birthday and I really wanted to document a trio of silly photos I took with one of my best friends.

IMG_3898-imp

There were so many fun pattern papers in this month’s Jellybean kit that I really wanted to use a bunch of them. I decided to layer strips of some of my favorites and ruffle them a bit for extra texture.

IMG_3900

Since there was so much interest on my page with all of the patterns, I decided to keep my embellishments to a minimum. I journaled on the bottom of my page and created faux “stitches” with black pen marks throughout my page. My title was a simple die cut word from white cardstock that I adhered with staples.

IMG_3901

Such a happy turnout!! This girl is such a blessing and I love that I had the perfect papers to document this fun moment!! Thanks for stopping by! Happy creating!

Yearbook | Trio

yearbook

Hello!

Today, I am very happy to show you a new layout made with the Play Kit (March kit), that you can buy in the store here. I am totally in love with the bold colours of this kit and I am sure you are too. Don’t forget you can even add some products matching this kit offered in the store.

I love the different die cuts from Shimelle! They add a funny touch to any layout.
And some of them allow to add beautiful journaling spots to your layout. I’ve decided to show you how to use one of them to create an original journaling.

As you can see, I’ve used the little blue typewriter to highlight my journaling. I’ve written my journaling with the computer using the Traveling Typewriter font. It’s important to write the journaling on a narrow piece of paper, as this is the detail that creates the wow effect.

As you may already know, The Cut Shoppe is our sponsor for the March challenge, and I’ve decided to use a cut file for this occasion. Look at the effect on the background! Love that!

I also love the Play kit because it can be used for lots of different colour combos. Mine is yellow, navy blue and blue. It was mainly chosen because I used the Bear Hug Paper from the Little by Little Collection of Shimelle.

As I only used the right part, it gave me the colour direction of this layout.

Here is a better look on some parts of my layout. Enjoy!

And I have to say I am a little bit sad today, because this is my last blog post on the Clique Kits blog, as I have to leave the team for personal reasons. I want to thank you all the team, Erica, Nicole and Gia for this wonderful experience over the last month!
As the CK kits are full of products, I have lots of products left from past kits, so be sure you will see some other layouts from me made with them!

Have a wonderful day!

Delight

yearbook

Here I am today, to share a layout I’ve made using the wonderful Hey Sugar January Kit.
Even if I have three boys, this kit is one of my favourite so far… so many fun embellishment and I love the bright colours! These colours are perfect for happy moments with my sons!
And I have quite a few of them to document!

magalileluc_january_delight

As the journaling says, this photo was taken last year.
After the school, I went to a park with my older son to take some pictures of him. He’s not always happy when I do that, but this day, he was so delighted to do that!
We spend a wonderful time together, playing under the tree, finding new angles to take beautiful photos. And he literally played with the camera.

magalileluc_january_deligh3

This is really a very nice memory for me, and I had to document it.
It was Spring and we were surrounded by beautiful colours and flowers.
I created this environment by cutting the Crate Paper flower paper.
I’ve used them to create a border under my photos
to separate the journaling and the photos.

After placing my photos over the black and white paper, I’ve stitched (with my sewing machine) a white frame to highlight the pictures. I love how delicate it is!
