Hello, Clique friends. Today I’m bringing a new layout created with the gorgeous September Sundance kit.

CK_Sep17_MainKit-24

My goal for this page was to include multiple pictures. Although I tend to make one-photo layouts, sometimes I feel like that is not enough to document a story or capture the little details. Here you can see my oldest daughter playing the ukulele. I love how focused and passionate she gets every time she plays. Nothing can distract her! Those three pictures needed to go together on one page 🙂 I reduced their size to measure about six inches in length all together. It was like working with one 4×6” photo.

I started by fussy cutting several flowers from one of the 1Canoe2 patterned papers that came in the kit. I was planning on having a white background and wanted to include pops of color and dimension by adding those cut outs here and there. To bring in more interest, I decided to use a cut file from my stash to cover a little more than half of the page. I love the tone-on-tone look. It is subtle but definitely noticeable.

I adhered the three pictures together on layers of card stock and popped them up with some foam. The leaves and additional flowers you see on the right-hand side were fussy cut from another paper in the kit. I like how the pink brings in an extra element of color. It also created the perfect spot for the acrylic words and heart. Enamel dots finished the layout.

I hope this has inspired you to get creative with your kit and include multiple photos on your pages. This kit is absolutely lovely and very versatile. Get yours before it’s gone!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

Yearbook – Let’s Go

Hello! It’s Réka and today I’m sharing my latest layout with you from my yearbook, using the ’Sundance’ Traveler’s Notebook Kit. One of my favorite part of the kit is the embellisment which I really love using.

ck-sep17-tnkit-9_1_orig

For my layout I have printed my photo in A4 size on the white cardstock which became the base of it.

I have created one vertical cluster with some embellishments from the top to the bottom, at middle part of my layout. I have used the Let’ s go and hearts die cuts from the Pretty Little Studios: Wish You Were Here collection and some stickers, also  from the same collection which came with the kit. The flowers, which were fussy cut out of one PL card from the main September’s printables also went on my layout. The Journey word was cut the stars green paper from the Pretty Little Studios: Wish You Were Here 4×6 Paper Pack with my cameo.

Finally, I have made a little pocket on the back side of the page and I have put in one tag from the Pretty Little Studio Baggage Claim Shipping Tags package and I can write this day’s story here.

I love using the hidden comment on my layout and now I am doing this.

Yearbook: Summer Fun

Hi! It’s Donna here sharing another layout using the August “Malibu” kit, exclusive cut files and printables.

20121311_10209396396442132_5681943947058556093_o

I always get stumped when it comes to scrapbooking multiple photos in a layout. How do I make it work without making it too crowded? How can I make the design interesting?

Then an idea occurred to me while staring at this.

Create a folding mini-album! It’s not a unique idea and has been used several times but it’s fun so why not do it once in a while.

 

I used a piece of 12×12 cardstock and folded 4 times. The width and height depend on the sizes of your photos. I adhered in place the last fold/panel.

I used foam tapes to create a space so I can insert another photo underneath.

Fun and interesting way to add multiple photos in a single spread.

I also made this tassel so the mini-album will stay folded.

That’s all from me today! I hope you like my project as much as I do! ❤

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??

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.

s254461307115203172_p1804_i8_w640

Before showing my layout, I want to share how I “weed” through cut files especially intricate ones like the Floral Crown cut file.

DSC_6534

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!

DONNAESPIRITU-AQUARELLE-LAYOUT01

 

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!

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.
