Hello Clique Fans! Erica here with you today to share a layout I created using the February 2018 Atacama kits! We are currently sold out of subscriptions but we do have some great products from this kit and collection available in theClique Kits shop! For this layout I used a sketch for inspiration and I followed it pretty closely!
I started by picking the papers I wanted to use to go along with my photo. I decided to use black white and pink color combo! I took advantage of the boarder stripes that come on the 12x12 papers!
I also pulled a black and white polka dot paper from my stash to use on my layout! The photo I am using is of our daughter Alyssa so I thought this color combo was perfect! I pulled out my favorite stamp set from Precious Remembrance shop called Happy Art to add a messy boarder around my photo! Some of this does get covered up but I love how it looks!
I was able to pull in some of my items from my January kit as well and use in this layout! I do this a lot with my kits and it help to get all my products used up and it does stretch the life of my kits! The Vicki Boutin frame pack and ephemera packs had some black and white florals as well as some black and white ones! They were perfect for this layout! I like to cut them in half and tuck them behind my layers. You can find these frame & ephemera packs HERE in the Clique Kits shop! The one think I love about these packs is they are so full and colorful! They can go with so many collections!
Using fun texture stamps is a great way to get a mixed media look without getting messy! We have a new Kesi Art Stamp set in the shop that would be perfect if you are just getting started with mixed media or if you love mixed media look but do not want to get messy! You can check it out HERE! Here is a look at my completed layout!
You can check out my process on the CK YouTube channel HERE! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to get a little....or a lot messy and have some fun with your stamps!
Hello Friends! Maryám here with you today to share a layout using our January Kits. I mixed both kits but almost all of the embellishments are from the Traveler’s Notebook Kit.
I’m going to tell you the truth, I had no idea what to do for this assignment. I wanted to use the Vicky Boutin stuff and I had a lot of ideas in my mind but they weren’t good enough for me. I took a break and then when I came back to my desk I decided that I wanted to play with some mix media stuff. I used some of the memory dex cards as stencils and I also used my Prima Watercolors. I created a background but I didn’t like the result. Then, like a week after, my mind had new ideas and finally, I created a design that I liked.
For this layout I’m using some circles that I punched from the background I made as the main element of the design. I also added some sequins and a few embellishments but nothing too big because I wanted to keep my photo and the journaling as the main focus of the layout. In the end, I stamped with the roller stamp some cute phrases that I liked.
Here are some close-ups:
That’s is for today! I hope you liked this layout. Let me know if you have any questions.
Until next Time.
Happy Monday! Do you ever experiment with different sizes of layouts to go in your albums? I know that I am not always a 12x12 girl myself. I love to add different sizes, pocket pages, and even interactive elements to my pages to increase the interest and keep things fresh. Today, I'm creating an 8.5x11 layout and I am grabbing one of my favorite go-to tools: my hexagon punch!
I started with all of the beautiful paper and ephemera from the main kit. There were so many useable patterned and shapes to choose from that I just grabbed a little of everything. I used my hexagon punch to create a whole bunch of punched shapes and then laid them out on my page.
One of my favorite little tips for a layout like this is to choose a couple of places to reverse your punch. Instead of laying the punched out shape on top of the layout, I used my punch to removed a piece of the background paper, added a little dimension foam, and placed the patterned paper behind it. Not only does this create some extra interest and dimension, but its a great home for some ephemera--in this case--flair badges.
Then, it was just a matter of adding some layers behind my photo and my title which I grabbed from my personal stash of Good Vibes goodies. This was a simple layout but I just love the result. Here is the video that goes along with it if you are interested in checking that out.
Pull out those punches today and see what fun things you can create! I would love to see what you come up with so make sure to tag me in any project you make.
I know you are so excited as I am about the February Main Kit which is called Atacama. This kit is amazing and contains lots of gorgeous elements.
The good news is my kit is on the way and I hopefully it arrives soon.
So today I am sharing with you my January album ’s cover featuring the Cocoa Vanilla Studio-Bohemian Dream collection from January 2018 Main Kit.
I have always wanted to try the patchwork technique with paper but I have never done. I would have liked to use the cutter machine more often in 2017, but I didn’t do it. I decided to change in 2018. So for today’s project I created a patchwork background. I used Beautiful Mess paper by Cocoa Vanilla Studio, I cut out some 1x1,5 inch pieces and glued them onto the white cardstock. I also added zigzag machine stitching. The result is just amazing.
2018 year’s color is lilac and this is the reason why I chose this cute lilac bird for the cover decoration. I also used my cutting machine and I edited the word ‘January’ with the Silhouette Cameo program. I cut it out from the same paper which I used for the cover and I also used white cardstock at the back. Some splashes were the finishing touches to complete the cover.
For the back side of my January album I used the same patchwork technique.
The interesting part of the back cover is the “hey” die cut word from the Vicki Boutin- All the good Things pack. I used Altenew Golden Peach embossing powder from my stash and added a new look for it. I absolutely love the result. I used this word and created a little message for myself around it.
I hope you are inspired to create some cute album covers. Thanks for joining me today.
