Hello Clique friends! Valeska here again with another mini album to share with you! You know I really love making mini albums with shakers, don't you?! This time, I prepared a mini album with a cover with four shakers of different sequin colors. This Sampler Kit Work of Heart from Rosie's Studio is so crafty and colorful that I can't resist.
This kit is no longer available in the store but you can find another kit with so many beautiful things like this one and use this project as inspiration.
I prepared this mini album from scratch, using recycled chipboard and papers from the collection. For the binding, I used The Cinch that you can also find here in the store in an incredible kit Book Binding Kit with wires in many colors.
First I prepared the cover and made a small flap on the back cover to place my small bound notebook. Using the stickers and chipboard stickers from the kit, I decorated my pages to later paste my photos.
I also used metal dies to make flowers out of the papers and I used words stickers and lots of puffy hearts.
If you don't know how to use The Cinch, I prepared a super quick video showing what to do after the holes. It's super simple and your project can be super beautiful without much effort.
I hope you enjoyed this inspiration and don't forget to join our Facebook group, publishing your work and still running for store credits.
Hello Clique International friends, here I am with a new layout. I really need colors in my life in this time of the year, so I grabbed Sampler Kit | Happy Blooms | Pinkfresh Studio from my stash and created something with it: it has such amazing pastel colors, but also some more vibrant hints, and it is full of florals and cute embellishments... really what I needed in these foggy days to cheer me up a little bit! I created the background by cutting strips from different patterned papers that I glued on a white Bazzill. Then I cut diagonally to create the right part, that I glued on another Bazzill. With the remaining patterned paper strips I created the left part, gluing it vertically.
The focal point is the picture, that I embellished with a lot of floral die cuts.
Since the background and the embellishments I wanted to use were really colorful, I decided to use a black and white picture.
Whenever I used a butterfly embellishment this is my way to adhere it on the page: I put glue only in the centre and lift up the wings to make it "fly"!
I loved using the Valentine themed kit, Keeley & Roy and created cards, sweet treat box, mini album in a tote bag and a layout of my beautiful fur baby. My dilemma is that I had some beautiful paper strips and embellishments left over but wasn't sure how I could create something with limited supplies work. And here is my answer, a tag layout!
The dark red and cream were perfect for a Kraft base paper. I firstly cut four different sized tags and added machine stitching to each. I created a feature tag, layering it with a smaller tag, adding lace from the kit and stickers in a collage technique. I added this tag with foam tape to create further dimension.
I added my photo (of my oldest and youngest) over the tags with foam tape and then added the last of my stickers from the kit.
With the last larger paper strip I created a feature at the bottom of my 8.5 x 11 inch layout by tearing it and then adding some of the lace and finishing off by machine stitching. I added the last of the die cuts to create an embellishment cluster. Despite limited supplies it is amazing what you can create with so little. I don't think this would have worked on a traditional 12x12 inch layout but for my chosen size it totally works.
Hi sweet Clique friends, It's NenaScrap with you today and I'm so happy to be here and to share with you my new layout with 2 of my favorite kits : the Stitched Together Base kit and the Leaves Turning add-on kit. They are featuring Bungalow Lane by Paige Evans and Peaceful Heart by Jen Hadfield collections.
To give my page a bit of relief, I put a blue printed paper from the Stitched Together kit under my white cardstock and added a machine stitched line around it.
I made a cluster at the bottom of my page with the embellishments of the 2 kits: the flowers and ephemera die-cuts and the epoxy die-cuts from Bungalow Lane collection.
I distressed some pieces of paper and put them under my picture. I love the volume and texture it adds. I again made little embellishment clusters around my photo with die-cuts from the Stitched Together and Leaves Turning kits. To add volume to the flower die-cuts, I gently wrap the petals around a small pencil 😉
Since I wanted my cut file to look like part of the background, I added an extra title with the alphabet stickers from the Stitched Together kit. This title "This Is Us" was the perfect addition to this selfie of my last 3 and I taken during the March 2020 lockdown to wish my little nephew's birthday.
I hope you liked this layout. Remember to participate in our February challenge on the Facebook group, there is a $25 gift certificate to win.
Can you believe it’s almost March?? I get the feeling I’m just slow and time is fast. Which is also the explanation for my latest layout, Snapchat noob… some things just take some time for me to get into. Same with Snapchat hahaha. I used the amazing Fairytale kit and a stencil from the add on kit.
I started with a circle as a template for the stencil. Then fill that circle with distress oxide Mermaid Lagoon. Simply reposition the stencil to fill the entire circle, if you gently blend then it looks like one big stencil!
I love making my own embellishments to go along with the embellishments in the kit. So, this time I used some dies and created those little leaves and stems. I embossed them with matching glittery embossing powder. I love how it turned out!
To create some extra dimension, and to give all a bit of a distressed look, I always roughen up the edges of the embellishment, and here also of the flowers.
I finished it all off with tiny wax seals. Have you seen the gorgeous wax seal sets we have? I'm so in love with wax seals, they give this extra touch and they are original and unique!
I hope you got inspired, and hope to see you again soon!
Hi Clique friends. So… I guess creating layouts is growing on me! Hahaha. Must say this one is on my top 3 of, don´t know if it’s because de flower pattern or else but I really, really, really love the result. Clique kits had share some of the Valentine’s Day digital cuts and as I had treated myself with a Cricut Joy last Christmas decide to use one of those digital cuts.
This was my first choice, then I chose another because I had a different idea but in the end I went for my 1st choice. because the paper had an awesome background I didn´t use any medium or stamps and I decided to remove the flowers from de digital cut and on top of the “o” put some little hearts (leftovers from the “&” ) instead the original draws.
You know I love scrapbook kits but I love even more have the freedom of mixing all the kits elements together into one project. I did that in this project and I will link to you all the kits used.
Flowers are always more (less flowers don´t exist in my vocabulary) so I mixed an acetate sheet full of flowers with my flower pattern paper and embellishes with more flowers. Haha! The black stripe made my project because puts everything together in a very chic way.
In the end I must say that this was an easy layout for me, finally I didn’t had to overthink like I´m used to do every time I create a scrapbook layout .
Hey everyone! I hope you've been able to find some crafty time for yourself. I have managed to do that, even though this layout is pretty simple and the picture is really pretty bad, but I loved the memories that go along with it, so I had to scrap it!
I started with a white background, one cause I like a white background and two, because I had no clue what I was going to do. My crafty juices haven't been flowin to well lol. Anyways..... I really started this layout by going threw my kit and pulling things I liked and wanted to use. Once I had all that pulled out I started with my photo, matting it and adding different layers. A little bit of 3D foam adhesive and making sure there was a place for me to stick a journaling card. (I'm trying to be better about adding my journaling to my layouts).
At this point I had my photo matted and my place for a journaling card, did my journaling and slid my card into where it belonged. Then I realized, well hey now I cant add things to that side of my photo so, I think I need to figure out what the background of my layout is going to look like lol. I decided I was just going to use a few of the papers I had pulled, cut a few strips and add them to the sides of my layout.
I did a wider strip to the left so that my photo could be anchored there, so I knew I wanted something on the right side of the layout too, some kind of cluster. I still had a bundh of the pieces pulled out so I started layering them, found a piece I wanted to add so I fussy cut it out and tucked some of it in as well. I used a little bit of everything here lol, ephemera pieces, puffy stickers, those cute chipboard circles. I finally got it to where I liked it and decided that my photo cluster needed more too.
I tucked more florals to the left of my photo, along with a bit of the piece I fussy cut earlier. But I don't know if you've looked at this kit, but it has tons of sentiment strips and sweet sayings, so I decided that I was going to use a bunch of the ones I had already pulled and put them under my photo. Sticking a flower in there too, a chipboard circle to bring the stripes down there too and that cute little puffy sticker house. That was it. I started this layout all backwards lol, does anyone else do that sometimes? My big thing for this one was making sure I got the story down. I hope you enjoyed this layout and we'd all love to see what you are creating too!
Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a heart shaped mini album that I created using the gorgeous Alexandra Renke I Left My Heart Base Kit. This kit has a fun mix of love themed, floral, and modern designs. I chose to focus on hearts and florals for this piece, but I know I'll be using the rest of this kit in the upcoming months.
I used the Alexandra Renke Folk Heart Die to piece together the design on the album cover. The Jen Hadfield Gold Puffy Stickers from the kit fit perfectly into some of the die-cut shapes and added dimension and shine to the heart.
For embellishments, this kit includes die cut cardstock designs from Alexandra Renke, a coordinating roll of washi tape, Pinkfresh Studio enamel dots, chipboard, and handmade felt heart embellishments. I used a mix of those items on each album page.
I applied stickers over the chipboard designs to add more dimension to the album pages. My daughter was sweet enough to supply me with some snapchat selfies.
I'm a tactile crafter, so this fun mix of embellishments are so fun to touch. I especially love the softness of the handmade felt hearts.
I began by stamping one of the Freda images on to a blank sheet of watercolor paper with some permanent black ink. Next I used the Prima watercolor set and painted the image and allowed it to dry well. I hand tore the edges and inked them with the stamp pad. To give the page a bit of structure I used my Fude Ball pen and drew a rough line around the entire page to give it sort of a frame.
To give it some texture and something sticky to apply the gold leaf on to, I applied some coarse modeling paste. While it was wet I places bits of the gold leaf into it as well as words from the Dina Wakley Collage words. Once that was all dried in place I cut some of the banners from the patterned paper in the Freda kit and stapled them on to the page. I used another sheet of the gingham patterned paper as the background behind it and glued it all down.
I finished it of by stamping the flaming heart on to a scrap piece of water color paper and painted it with the metallic watercolor then glued on the collage word. I added pop dots to it to give it some dimension and added it to the page. I added some extra glue to this piece so it wouldn't go anywhere.
I love the metallic watercolors with the Freda images. Perhaps I'll so some more playing with this combo!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you were inspired to create something beautiful today!
Hello there!Giorgiahere today on the Clique Blog with another layout all about love: I was inspired by our February mood board (check it out on the bottom of this post), that is full of hearts, to make a project that scream LOVE!! I used the beautiful and colorful Sampler Kit | You are my Sunshine | Bella Blvd that contains a looooot of papers, embellishments and even precut shapes and big titles, really useful if you don't have an electronic die cutting machine, like me!
I created the background by cutting many hearts with a metal die: I love how vibrant these patterned papers are! I really am in love with this kit! I glued the hearts only in the centre and I lift up the outside to create dimension. The title is a combination of stamp, stickers and die cuts that compose the sentence "smile & keep looking up, there may be a rainbow; since my daughter is looking up in the picture, I thought it was cute to add a dimensional sticker rainbow to make like she is looking at it!
I backed the precut butterfly with vellum and I added diecuts to embellish.
