How are you doing? I hope everyone is doing great and that you stay healthy and at home. For today I want to show you a new project I made using the Paperinky collections which I like a lot! I have combined both collections that were in the Clique Kits shop, Metropolis and Milkmedia and I have made a Midori.
To make the covers of the midori I have used a cardboard and then some cloth I had at home left from other projects that I made. I joined them and sewed, and then made a hole on each side of the spine to add the elastics later for the pages on the inside.
For the inside pages, I have used mostly the papers of Metropolis and added a couple of pages of Milkmedia. Then I also used the paper of the Project Life cards and cut them to add them on the inside of the midori as some extra decorations.
I have also used in some pages watercolor paper to add diferent details, and some washi tape stripe that I had from Altenew that I adore! I added some extra decorations with Studio Forty stickers and some enamel dots. Here you can see more pages.
As the moment we are living now is not the best to travel we can always use these midoris or traveler's notebooks to document our life at home or during lockdowns that we may have in our correspondent countries. I hope you like the idea and the project!!
Stay at home safe and healthy! I hope you like the project and I will be back soon with new things to show! Take care.
Lots of love,
Hi there Clique friends! Giorgia here today to share with you three layouts made with the baby girl themed kit available in the shop, Kaia: I wanted to show you how many projects you can make with just one kit and a few more other papers - and even after doing these layouts I still have plenty of materials left!
For the first layout I cut paper strips from different patterned papers to create the background: I machine stitched them to a lovely soft pink hearts paper.
The lovely paper clip with lace is included in the kit!
Since my Baby Bella was dressed up in a bunny costume, I added this sweet 3D bunny sticker: I love the dimension that 3D stickers give to any project!
For the next layout I used the same paper for the background, I trimmed a white cardstock slightly smaller and sewed it on top.
I created a background with a stencil and Distress Oxide.
With a die cutting machine I cut several hearts from white cardstock and glued them down.
Die cuts can be found in this kit.
The last layout is a scraplift of a page by my team mate Raechelle; I immediately felt in love with the design with patterned papers squares in the border of the page and I wanted to recreate it in my own way.
Paper doilies are included in the kit, along with a package of sequins: I love the fact that in many Clique kits you can find sequins, because they are one of my favorite little touch to add at the end of a project.
I added some butterflies: when you make a layout, repetition of elements is important to create an eye catching page, so, when you want to add one kind of embellishment or one kind of shape, try to add 2 or 3 of the same kind, instead!
I used different kind of butterflies: stamped, die cut and chipboard to add variety.
I used these products from the shop:
Have a good day!
Ciao, a presto.
Hello friends! It's Smitha here today, and I'm in the mood of doing some mixed media art. I decided to alter the cover of this mini album and I'll show you how!
I'm using the Vicki Boutin Molding paste. This is a smooth paste that is great to add subtle white on white texture and use along with stencils.
To create an even layer or pattern and texture, place your stencil onto the album cover. Center the stencil. If you need to, you can also tape down the stencil. Then, using a palette knife or an old credit card smear the paste all over the stencil and spread evenly.
Make sure to clean off your stencil immediately after. I added the pattern to the top 4/5th of the album cover and love how it looks already. I then added some paper, and embellishments from the Daydreamer kit and love how the title is bold yet simple.
I love adding paper die cuts and mixing it with the molding paste to create such subtle texture and pattern.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial friends! Thanks for stopping by today :)
Welcome to Cliquekits blog today!
It's Josefine here sharing a new layout with you. The theme is "Let's Go"
I use the beautiful base kit " A simpler Life" this kit is a perfect match for my photo's from Paris.
I love Paris this beautiful city feels like home! I love the architecture, the people, food and the special restaurants with all there coziness...
I start with the background of my layout. I stamped two stains with the distress oxide (peeled paint) with my clear stamp on the white cardstock. I also make some spletters with the distress oxide using my brush. I let it dry and start building the flowers. For the pink flowers, I use a 1 inch punch and punched 11 circles out from the soft pink cardstock.
I fold these circles in half and slide them together into a circle. 1 circle I use as a center and put the flower that I create in the middle to keep all the petals to each other. I gently unfold the petals to create more of a 3D effect. With the Cricut maker I cut an Eifel Tower and place it along with the paper flower die-cuts on my layout. I punch four circles out of the vellum with my 1 inch punch and glue the sides together and place them between the die-cuts. I also choose for three different Alpha's for my title.
When I'm done decorating the layout I'll make some more splatters with white gesso and black acrylic ink. I hope you got some great ideas and have fun folding the flowers!
Have a lovely day and love to see you next time on Cliquekits blog!
