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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

Patient Zéro | Magali

I am so so happy to be here to show you my first blog post as a Clique Kits design team member! I hope you will feel inspired by the following layout made with the November Kit Swan Lake.

ck_nov16-kit8

We are used to document the happy and joyful events of our life, but I am fully convinced that sad events have to be lived to enjoy the lucky events even more. Have you ever noticed how your heart explodes when you see someone you love smiling after several days of sickness?

So, please, don’t forget to document the unfortunate moments in your albums… these are also parts of your life and they are a complete part of your story. No need to say a lot, no need to find the perfect words, just write what you need to say truthfully from the heart.

mleluc-november-patientzero

Difficult to find the words? Try to use the computer to write your story (easy to correct and delete parts when necessary), choose the font you prefer and print your text. This way, you just need to cut stripes and add them to your layout.mleluc-november-patientzero2

As you can see, this was not the best day for our oldest son, but no worries, he’s better now! After he developed a relatively rare complication of a streptococcus infection (we did not even know he had been infected), we discovered he was the first case of a family epidemic!mleluc-november-patientzero3mleluc-november-patientzero4

It’s your turn now… find an important, but not so happy, event to document! I am sure you will treasure this memory!

Everyday has a Story

blog-image_yearbook

They say a photo can say a 1000 words.  But that’s only if you are the one who knows the story behind it!  When I am scrapbooking, I often have to write out the full story so that my children (and anyone else who looks through my books) knows what this particular photo means to me.

For this page that I created with the October Kit, Sapphire, I had a bit to say, but didn’t want it to take away from the design of my page.  So I created a little pocket behind my photo to hide my journaling.

 

everyday-story-ck

I added a piece of paper to the back of my page to help hold me journaling tag in place.

everyday-story-2

The tag is one of the exclusive cards in the kit.  I added a little punched strip to the top and a die cut from the PinkFresh Die Cuts pack.  Then I stitched it all together.

 

everyday-story-3

My story is written on the back.

 

everyday-story-4

You can also see one of the October cut files under my photo that I layered with patterned paper, die cuts, and flair!

everyday-story-1

You can watch this entire process here in my video:

 

 

Be sure to tell your story on your pages!!

Hey everyone! I know Yearbook usually revolves a bit around pocket scrapbooking, but instead I want to show you a way that you can use your pocket scrapbooking journal cards to create a standard 12 x 12 layout… with a little twist. 🙂

2016-10-3-2

For the base layout of my page I cut this gorgeous laser cut Amy Tangerine paper for the bottom, and a piece of pink floral paper from the Pinkfresh Studios Indigo Hills collection for the top. The pocket cards were cut out from a page of the Simple Stories Posh collection.

2016-10-3-3

I really wanted to keep this layout super simple and highlight the insanely beautiful die cuts in the bottom paper so I decided to make my journaling hidden. I used the wood veneer clips to create tabs for my two end journal cards to fold, exposing my writing.

Fun right?! I decorated the backs of each card as well so there was never a moment not showing off the beauty in this awesome kit. This picture of my daughter was taken at a Tea Room during one of our special “Girl Days.” It was a very feminine day and I think it deserved a very feminine layout. 🙂 She was happy with how it turned out haha!

So how do you all use your pocket cards other than pocket journaling? Do you throw them on more traditional layouts? Use them on cards? I’d love to hear your ideas and don’t forget to check the kit out in it’s entirety HERE if you aren’t signed up already! 🙂

Much love CK friends! Until next time!
