Hi sweet Clique friends,
Thanks for joining me today, I'm happy to share with you a lovely mini-album with the gorgeous Sampler Kit Inspired By Estefenia Ruiz Molina.
First of all, I really wanted to create a shaker cover for my album to use the fabulous sequin mix from the kit. Are you like me? Are you a total fan of the wonderful sequin mixes in your Clique Kits?
I created my shaker frame in cardstock using a heart die and then covered my frame with printed paper from the kit.
Layering several layers of cardstock will give you enough thickness to create your shaker box.
The mini-album is a square that measures 5 inches on a side, the edge measures 2 inches wide.
It is composed of 3 notebooks that I created by folding in 2 pieces of printed paper and white cardstocks measuring 4.5 inches high and 9 inches long.
Throughout the album, I used the many die-cuts found in the Sampler Kit Inspired By Estefania Ruiz Molina and added a touch of gold with dies.
As always, there is so much in the Clique Kits that it is always easy to create your own projects.
I used pictures of my last little one (they're almost 9 already!!!) when she was a baby. I turned them into black and white to match the kit colors.
In the middle of each notebook, I added an envelope or pocket that I glued only after I bound the notebook to the mini-album structure.
I couldn't resist another shaker box in the album!
With the die from the Last Call For Rainbows Remix Kit, I created this lovely rainbow. And I have to tell you, I love it!!!
I really like this Sampler Kit Inspired By Estefenia Ruiz Molina. I chose a baby theme but it can be adapted very easily to many other themes.
I hope you like this mini-album.
You can find the Sampler Kit Inspired By Estefania Ruiz Molina and the Remix Kit Last Call For Rainbows available on the Clique Kits website as well as many other wonderful kits.
I can' t wait to see you with new creations.
Have a happy crafty day.
Hugs & kisses from France.
Hi Clique friends!
Today it's my turn again on the Clique blog with a new layout I made, using the gorgeous Happy blooms sampler kit. This kit is so pretty, it makes it so easy to create, I love it!
When I started this layout I didn't have a clue what to create. Usually I have this image in my head, or at least some idea of the direction I want to go, but this time, I was completely blank.
I simply grabbed my kit and started picking bits and pieces.
I started with the photo, the green/teal colors in the kit match the photo really well I think. In the kit are these beautiful journal pieces, containing pockets and envelopes. I grabbed the ones with the right color and started layering behind my photo.
That sticker in the upper right corner is so pretty! I stuck it on the flap of the envelope, but didn't want the edges to stick to the rest of the paper, so I backed the edges with the backing of my adhesive tape.
I did my mixed media with my favourite distress oxide, used a stencil en finished it off with some splattering. I really love how this layout came together.
Hope you like it, thanks so much for visiting the blog and see you next time!
Happy Pride friends! Dana here today sharing a layout celebrating my transgender teen for pride month. We had an amazing day as a family in downtown Columbus, Ohio at the Pride Parade. It is vitally important that vulnerable youth coming of age are met with support from family, friends, and their community. Their life may depend on it!
I used Paper House Productions stickers to embellish the photos on this page. These stickers are similar to the products found in the Voices of Courage Limited Edition Pride Kit. For every kit purchased, Clique international will be donating 100% of the profit to The Trevor Project! The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) young people.
I used patterned papers from the gorgeous Alexandra Renke I Left My Heart Base Kit for this page. I cut out the large letters spelling love to create an oversized title in the center of the page. I used a felt heart, patterned paper, and stickers to build the rest of the title. The Color Dots patterned paper that I used for the base of this page was a fun way to incorporate the entire rainbow.

You know when you have saved some chipboard pieces (I think it was from a package or a box) that were meant to go to trash and you have the right idea to used it in a project?? So… today’s post was it… (haha)
Those two white pieces became this two wall décor pieces easily. First using a brayer and a Dina Wakley acrylic paint I did my background spontaneously. Since my idea was to make a match set I used the same colour palette, match papers and embellishments.
I think this is a kind of a cool project because you can display it in the wall like this or put it in open frames (you just need to remove the frame glass) and you have an inspiration décor for your craft room for instance. Also it’s an awesome gift.
The flowers and the “screws” (I know, at first glance they look real but are rub-ons – all linked below) were my repeated embellishment but I did placed the flowers differently in the projects
Was looking for an inspirational item so I didn’t used any photo, I went with the Prima die cuts and they did a great job because this set has wonderful quotes.
Hope you feel inspired to create yours.

Hey everyone!! Ok, so this year has been about trying new things for me. And I'm still doing that and really liking it. I started my year choosing the word Freedom. Its freedom to create, play and try new things. So this week I tried something I got from clique kits and had never used before, the add-on kit - Pleiades. Its Lindy's magicals and they are amazing!! I had never tried them before, but I am happy that I did now and I can see myself playing with them quite a bit in the future. I also used the Sampler kit - Butterfly Whispers.
There is so much to this kit in the first place, but the fact that it's all so stinking cute!!
I opened up my mixed media journal, or at least what I'm usings as on lol. I added a layer of clear gesso. Once that was dry I pulled out the Magical powders and started to sprinkle them on the right page here and there. When I started this, I thought I was only going to do one page, but that's not how it turned out. I just had to much fun. Once I had the powder sprinkled around, I started to spritz it with my water and the colors came to life!
I used Galactic Teal first, thinking I wanted the page closest to the middle to be dark, but then I started to sprinkle the Martian Magenta around and it was sooooo pretty. I started to sprinkle it on the other page too to see what I could do with it. I like the variations in color across the pages. I played and tilted the book to see it run.
I decided to let that dry a little while I played with fuddy cutting out a few things and going through the embellishment packs that came with the kit. So many things to chose from. But the piece that said what if I fall? What if I fly? really stood out to me in the moment, so I grabbed it and pulled the other things that felt right to me.
After I picked those things I decided that I wanted to add some yellow, because come on, that UFO Yellow in the Lindy's magicals was too good not to be used. I mixed it with a few different mediums so that I could get some opacity to it. I wanted it to sit on top of the other colors. End the end I went with clear gesso and a little bit of white paint and it worked for what I wanted. I grabbed my pallet knife, picked some of the color up with it and scrapped it across my pages in a few places.
Once I let that start to dry I started to add the What if piece where I wanted it and then moved on to the little cuties, butterflies and that bear!! I printed off a few words from my printer to go in fandom spots on my spread. I cut them out and doodled black lines around them. Once I had all those down I decided to pull out some of my paint pens.
I used a few sizes of white paint pens and my gold one too. I kinda went a little crazy with it. lol. I copied some of the shapes from papers in the kit and then added some little dots in clusters and some small line strokes. I chose to outline some of the shapes too.
I actually had so much fun with this. It's a first time thing, but I didn't feel any stress when I was playing with this and it ended up double the size I started out thinking I was going to do lol.
I hope you enjoyed this and it would be great to see what yall are doing with your kits too! Make sure to tag us on Instagram!
Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a layout that I created with the gorgeous Desert Daydream Sampler Kit from Saguaro Paperie. My almost 16-year-old child loves to browse the racks at our local Goodwill shop. They like to buy pieces that they can alter at home with the skills they learned in sewing class. We have learned that it is much easier to start with a piece of clothing than with yards of fabric. Our skill set is limited!
Stripes and florals are my absolute favorite pairing. I cut flowers and leaves from the patterned papers and used them to fill in the space on either side of my photo.
I added 3D star stickers around the fussy cut arrangements to add some dimension to the page.
A quick letter sticker title was the finishing touch on this layout. How fun are the polka dots?!

I also created this double lemonade shaker tag using papers from this kit. In addition to the fun floral prints, there is a fantastic lemon slice pattern that is just perfect for Summer. CLICK HERE for more information on how I created this tag.
Hey y'all! Michelle here and today I'm sharing with you this sweet little tag book I whipped up using the Peaceful Heart paper pack by American Crafts and Anna Griffin 3D Flower Embellishments (these can be found in the True Romance Kit)
Life is moving pretty fast these days so I'm all about quick projects that are beautiful and this was a quick one that was simple without a lot of fuss. The Peaceful Heart paper pack comes with a pattern paper that has tags printed on it. You could use it as is or you could cut out one of the tags and use it as a template. I preferred more of a simple patterned tag without the writing so I could add the words with the other papers so I cut out one of the tags (the one I used for the cover) and used it as my template. Then I cut my additional tags out of the patterned papers in the kit. Since they are all coordinating and double sided, it was all looked great together and coordinated really well.
I inked all the edges of all the tags with some black in to add some depth and interest and keep it from looking so flat. Once all the tags were cut I punched the holes in the top of all of them.
I cut out the square words from another one of the patterned papers to use as the sentiments in the middle of each tag and again I inked the edges of those as well.
Before I added the sentiments, I pulled some shredded brown packing paper that I like to include in my mixed media projects to add some embellishment and texture.
Next I was ready to add the square sentiments to tags pop dots.
as the finishing touch to each tag I added the Anna Griffin 3D flowers with pop dots to give the floral touch to each tag and tie them all together with a bit fo floral softness.
My vision behind this tag book is to not only be a pretty book but to serve as a quick place for me to pull an encouraging card to give a friend as I'm walking out the door so it will dwindle and change over time. Hopefully it will add beauty to other lives and not just sit in my desk drawer.
So that was my tag book and my vision for how I will use it. I hope it has encouraged you today to make something beautiful. Thanks so much for stoping by!
