Hello everyone! This is Anna.
Hi friends! Dana here today sharing the envelope advent calendar that I created using the amazing Miracle on 34th Street Seasonal Kit. The Miracle on 34th Street is a HUGE seasonal base kit with a Mid-Century Modern vibe featuring the full Cookies for Kringle 12 x 12 paper collection by Fancy Pants Designs as well as some favorites from Simple Stories Mix & Mingle. The re-order of this kit, it already sold out once, began shipping last week, so if you haven't picked up this kit don't wait much longer!
The base of this project is a re-purposed Halloween countdown book that I purchased from Amazon. I used patterned papers from the kit and washi tape from my stash to cover the front and back covers. I embellished the bottom of the front cover with puffy letter stickers and a die-cut tag.
The real magic happens when the book is opened to reveal 25 embellished envelopes made from the patterned papers from the kit. Rather than create a December Daily album like I've done for the past several years, I decided to simplify things with a numbered envelope design.
I used both the front and back sides of every piece of patterned paper in the kit and I love the festive mix of prints! The envelopes are ready for whatever I want to tuck inside, like photos, memorabilia, and notes about the day.
The only item shown here that is not included in the kit are the round numbers. I punched them from a piece of patterned paper from my stash. I have quite of bit of patterned paper leftover after creating these envelopes and a ton of embellishments. This kit is packed with enough seasonal goodies to make several projects!

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a festive scrapbook layout using the Pretty Little Studio Frosty & Friends Seasonal Kit. My oldest child dressed up as Rudolph for their holiday A Capella performance and this paper collection was absolutely perfect for documenting that occasion. The fun mix of patterned papers and the chipboard and die-cut reindeer embellishments made for a super fun project!
I used the die-cut tags from the kit to create a layered base for my photo. Once the tags were secured to the page, I added die-cut and sticker sentiments and a twine bow.
I used Distress Markers to color the chipboard reindeer and trees.
I decorated the areas surrounding the chipboard embellishments with die-cut hearts and stars and some handwritten journaling.
Thanks for stopping by today! If you like memory keeping with vintage inspired prints and images, check out the Pretty Little Studio products in the Clique Store.

Hello scrappy Friends!
Nicole here and today I'm sharing a peek inside my Document December album using the beautiful Christmas Cheer collection from Pretty Little Studio and also the super cute puffy Bella Blvd alphas from the shop!
I have always documented December in some way. Over the years, I've done it daily in a mini album, used a single 3x4 card in my main project life album to document each day, and many other ways. This year, I've been focusing on my stories more and decided to migrate this project into its own three ring binder. This isn't a fancy binder, in fact, I picked it up in the school supply section at Walmart. It's been perfect for this project allowing me to let my pages get chunky and this is one of those pages!
I fell in love with the paper that looked like a quilt in this collection and it gave me the idea to sew my own quilt page. I sewed literally every piece of paper to the page and LOVE the texture it adds! Two of the octagons I sewed straight to the page. The other four I made flip ups to add my photos and journaling under neath. Top right octagon I decorated with a cute house and tree ephemera. The bottom left I used for my page title...Comfort and Joy.
For the flip ups, I decorated those with the tree ephemera from the kit and used the really cute phrase stickers. I love these phrase stickers in this collection. They are a lot smaller than the normal size and so perfect for smaller photos and layouts!
Under the flip ups, I adhered my photo the the page itself and added my journaling and a couple flags from the same PLS collection to the top.
In my layout, I talk about what comfort has meant for me this year. Normally, comfort would be nights by the fire, visiting family, large family meals around the table and so much more. This year, comfort has been so different. It still has been relaxing by our fires, but its also been about remembering who I am, where I have come from...my family roots. It's been about laughing and being a kid again...watching cartoons, having popcorn and hot cocoa. It's been about kindness in other people that put smiles on my face in some of my worst moments. It's been about finding comfort around me in a time that has been very emotional, painful and yet joyful all at the same time.
This year has be devastating for all of us. I hope that each of you find your peace, comfort and joy in what surrounds you this holiday season!
I hope that each of you have a very safe and Happy Holidays!
Hello Everyone, it's Piroska here today with my latest post for Clique International. I hope you are all doing well! Have you seen the new goodies at the Clique Kits shop? A lot of Christmas collections have arrived, just choose one and start creating your December Daily, or document your previous memories! ;-)
For my December Daily I chose the Tree Album Kit, it contains a beautiful album from Mintopia Studio, assorted pocket pages, a coordinating embossing folder and die cut album pages. What I love the most, is that the binder is huge! You can add as many photos as you want :-D
I started to set-up my album. I love the beautiful colours of the Muérdago collection of Mintopia! The pocket pages make it easier to design your album and the More Mistletoe Add-On Kit is perfect to start making cards.
Let me show you some examples.
The first advent is on the 29th November, and although it's not in December yet, I love to start my album with our wreath. I stamped the letters with Muérdago Stamp Set from Mintopia, which you can find in the Mistletoe Stamp and Die-Set.
I also used The Mistletoe Kit from the Seasonal Series, which contains the 6x8 patterned paper pad, die cut ephemera pack, vellum ephemera pack, 6 x 12 stickers sheet ( 2 sticks) and sequins.
I love how many great embellishments this collection has! Two packages of die cuts :-D You can make many many cards with them. ;-)
You can also find a great die among the Mintopia goodies. You can make great impact with the 3D Star Dies.
Don't forget to put the Mistletoe Trims Add-On Kit in your cart, you can decorate your album and cards with these beautiful ribbons, shaker stickers, felt stars, and a Feliz Navidad acrylic!
At designing your cards, you can do anything you want. For this one I used a cut file of CUT to YOU.
You can use some other dies, like I did with these Mintopia dies:
Or just been play with the pocket. I may make some shaker pockets later as I fill the album with our December memories.
I hope I could inspire you to use the Mistletoe collections kits this year! ;-)
I am going to show you some more pages of my album as I start to fill it with photos. Until then, happy scrapping! ;-)

Aloha!! It's December 2017 and I am still working on December Daily 2016, haha. To streamline my process I am using the Clique Into the Holidays Kit for the pages I still need to put together. Into the end it will be a patch work album of combined collections and products. Focusing on majority of what work I have leftover with one kit, has really helped cut down the time picking and choosing products, making pages come together quickly.
Here is a look at the December Daily spread I put together for 2016, Day 17. I used the exclusive printables Lacey designed for the CK Holiday Workshop.
I decided to make a big shaker 6X8 pocket with a photo of some Oreo peppermint bark I made and the sequins from the kit.
The Sweater Weather papers are so much fun to fussy cut the images out of to help embellish. I used the houses, trees and snow capped mountains to build a day embellishment cluster. I added some twine for texture and layered circles from the patterned paper.
I kept the pocket cards simple and used the Sweater Weather stickers and enamels to embellish them . I backed most of them with the patterned paper from the kit.
Here are some of the filler cards I used with Lacey's Holiday Workshop Printables. On some of the cards I used the holiday themed Honey Bee Stamp Set with some Altenew ink.
You Can watch my process video down below!! I hope enjoy it and are inspired to use your Clique Into the Holidays Kit.

Aloha!! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I was busy hanging out with my family and scrapping. I am working hard trying to work on my December Daily from last year. I want to have most of it finished before I start this year's album. One way that I am doing is sticking to one kit as much as possible and using printables. Lacey has designed some really amazing exclusive printables for the Clique Into the Holidays workshop. These really help add to my album pages and I love that I can add them into Photoshop and type my journalling right on the card or edit them to fit my album. Let's take a look at a few simple things I did to my Day 10 and using the printables.
My Day 10 consists of One 6x6 sized photo on a piece of 6x8 patterned paper and 2 6x8 page protectors that have 2 3x4 at the top and 1 6x4 photo at the bottom. I had a total of 4 photos for my day. I wanted to make sure I included journaling and filler day card.
I took one of the exclusive printable cards and added it to Photoshop. I loved the coffee cup and the color scheme, but i wanted to change the bottom line of words to match my spread. In Photoshop it was really easy to highlight the bottom line of text and cover it in another layer with the same color as the background. I then added a new text block back over the same spot and added the wording I wanted. I color matched the original text and changed the text color to match. Bingo, it looks like it matches and by adding layers in Photoshop I can easily go back to the original version when I want to use that.
Before changing the coffee cup card I printed off all the exclusive printables on a cover stock paper on my at home printer. By batch printing them, I have a bunch of cards all ready to go to add to my spreads as I need them.
I love the way my day card turned out by trimming down the December Card and backing it on a striking red patterned paper. I added silver glitter washi tape to the middle of the card then layered on top of that a circle of patterned papered a lab tag punched out from the printable sheet. By adding a sticker and a handmade bow with bakers twine, I had the perfect little spot to add number tile stickers that look like they came from a game. It matched the pictures from my day too.
To help tie in the the big picture with the pockets I added another cluster of layered washi tape, patterned paper and a label from the same printable paper. I added more numbers to the die cut just in case I needed it. This penguin from the Sweater Wether Collection is so cute and matches the penguin on my holiday mug. I also added some red sequins for some extra pops of color.
I love this heart pattern from the printables, it works so well with my photo too. The one thing about game or get together's are that the photos tend to have so may different colors in them. I could have made the photo black and white and then it would match any color scheme I use. So using this pattern really keeps the page alive and joyous. by adding a christmasy patterned paper behind the hearts it gives a nod to the holiday season but doesn't scream Christmas. This get together with our friends is a something that we plan monthly so it isn't necessarily a christmas story but a story of our lives even when it is the holidays. I think it's important in my holiday albums to note and journal about he relationships we have and what that means to us.
I kept the card simple and added a tag and a label sticker. By adding ribbon to the tag I am bringing more red in to the spread.
My drink photo was very festive so I embellished that a bit more. By adding silver washi tape, a sticker, gold alpha's and more red sequins. I tried to get the cluster to mimic the drinks. It makes it fun and fills that need for things to match.
I had a whole 3x4 card for journalling which was plenty. If I had needed more space to journal I would have close one of the printables and added it to Photoshop and added a text black on the card and added journalling that way. By printing out journaling you can make the words smaller and get more on the card. also it can look really nice and neat especially if you use a really cool font.
Thanks for joining me today!! By on the look out this week on the Clique Kits Youtube Channel for the Process video for this spread. I will share the video in the Clique Facebook when it is live.
Be sure if you purchase the Clique into the Holidays Class that you share with everyone how your holiday documenting is going. We love to see your work!! Use the hashtag #cliquekits and #click_connect_create.
Have an inspired week!!
