Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a set of unholiday cards. I created this set of 12 cards using the amazing Goddesses of the Zodiac Modern Documenter Kit, which includes a set of 24 3x4 pocket cards, 2 cards of each zodiac goddess, with original artwork in collaboration with Scarlet Bouthiette. Each goddess of the zodiac is depicted in a periwinkle galaxy and features aspects representing many different cultures from ancient mythologies. If you're looking for the perfect card to create to send to your bestie or a family member who needs some lifting up, this kit is for you!
I kept the design of this card simple, but interesting, with a double z fold design. Once I decided on the design, I was able to create 12 cards in a couple of hours. In addition to the Goddesses Kit, I also used the 10th Anniversary Clique Chromatics Kit, which coordinates perfectly with the color palette of the zodiac cards and cut-apart sentiment tags from the Paper Rose Studios Rainbow Poppies Sampler Kit.
If you'd like to make a z fold card, cut a card base from cardstock to measure 4 1/4 x 11 inches and then score at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches (Teal cardstock in the photo above). Next, cut a second color of cardstock to measure 3 1/2 x 10 inches and score at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches (Purple cardstock in the photo above). Finally, cut two patterned paper and/or cardstock panels to measure 2 1/2 x 3 inches (Polka Dot and White Cardstock in the photo above). Secure the top edge of the longer purple cardstock fold to the smaller fold of the teal cardstock. Secure the smaller purple cardstock fold to the larger teal cardstock fold. Folding the card front down as if you are closing it and lining up the bottom purple fold over the bottom teal base will ensure that the card is properly lined up to close flat. When flat, the card measures a standard 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches.
The Goddesses of the Zodiac Kit includes 6 full size spa series ink pads from Catherine Pooler and the 10th Anniversary Kit includes a periwinkle pen. These products help take the guess work out of finding that perfect shade of ink to stamp or write a personal message on the inside of each card. Gia thinks of everything!
Here are some of the other cards I created with these kits. I stuck to the same design but switched up the order of the cardstock colors. CLICK HERE to see all 12 zodiac cards included in the kit.

Happy weekend friends! I've been itching to use the Cream Collection from A.B. Studio and I finally found some time last night to play! If you like the shabby chic look, but aren't a fan of including a lot of mixed media on your projects, A.B. Studio has some fantastic papers! And you can really make a layout pop with just a few embellishments, stamping and a photo!
I snapped this photo this week while I was cleaning... I happened to look over and saw Toby, completely relaxed, dozing by the window. So I quietly grabbed my phone to take a picture. :)
I included a great deal of layering on this layout. To begin, I cut the plus printed paper to measure 8 1/2x11 and the other paper was cut to measure 8x10 1/2. I mounted them together and then tore the butterflies from another piece of paper to use as a mat for the photo.
I colored the butterflies with alcohol markers and stamped the two pumpkins onto a piece of paper using ink from Catherine Pooler and then fussy cut them out. One of the pumpkins were mounted next to the other using a foam square to add dimension. We have a variety of Catherine Pooler's inks in the shop, grab them while they last because these are my FAVORITE go to inks.
Since a few of the embellishments have green in them, I decided that I needed to pull a little bit more green into the layout so after thinking about it, I grabbed a fine tip watercolor brush and my ink and painted the circles with ink. I did NOT use water... I just needed the brush. :) This technique is super simple and effective!
I cut the tag from the cut-apart sheet and punched a hole through the top so I could tie a piece of lace through the hole. It added just the right touch.
The butterflies were fussy cut from the cut-apart sheet and then stapled together. Then I added the floral embellishment to the center using a foam square. This flower is part of the Alchemy Kit...there are lots of gorgeous embellishments in this kit!
More fussy cutting and layering was added to the bottom of the photo to pull this together.
The chipboard and puffy heart embellishments are from my stash. What do you think? Isn't this lovely. It's a bit too girly for me, but I still love it. :) Thanks so much for visiting today! There's a sale going on...so grab some new paper goodies and get scrapping!
Hello Everyone, it's Piroska here today with my latest post for Clique International. So incredible it is already July! For today's post I brought the next spread of my Storyline Chapters insert where I record our Spring break at the Lake Balaton. I use the dotted one for these memories, it is plain and works perfectly for such memories.
First I chose 3 photos for this spread. On the left side I only wanted to use one, on the right the two selfies.
For the left side I cut out two cards from the Fun in the Sun paper of the Sunkissed collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio. You can find all those pretty papers and embellishments in the Sunkissed Sampler Kit and Sunkissed Modern Documenter Kit.
I arranged the cards and the photo, and addes my journalling in one of the rectangles. I added some clear stickers from the Sunkissed Modern Documenter Kit, some phrase stickers from the Sunkissed Sampler Kit.
I also stamped a rainbow with the Storyline Chapters stamp set which you can find in the Storyline Chapters Grey Starter Kit.
On the right side I had a horisontal photo, by wich I repeated the arrangement from the left side. I cut out a 3x3 card from the 6x8 Sunkissed paper pad, and added some clear stickers from the Sunkissed Modern Documenter Kit, a die cut and a phrase sticker from the Sunkissed Sampler Kit.
I added the rainbow stripe from the Fun in the Sun paper under the photo.
On the bottom I added my last photo and stamped my title with the same colours, the rainbow paper stripe has. It was easy to copy with the awesome catherine Pooler inks! I used the colours Cummerbund, Catching Rays, Pucker Up and Rouge.
I also added some clear stickers from the Sunkissed Modern Dosumenter Kit.
I hope I could inspire you to use these Storyline Chapters inserts for documenting your story.
Go to the shop and buy some Catherine Pooler ink pads too ;-)
