Hello, CK friends! Donna here back with another project using the June kits "Sweet Tea". I created a scrapbook layout mixing stuff from the main and junior kits. I also used the Color Kit as well.
I used a white cardstock as the background. Then I used the 3 acrylic paints in the Color Kit to draw a circle. in the center. This will be the base of the wreath design I will be doing. After creating the circle, I used a couple of brushes to splatter some more paint diluted with water.
I fussy cut the peaches from the Dear Lizzy paper Peachy Keen and mounted them with foam tape following the circle drawing to create a wreath design. I alternated between the colors of the peaches and then tucked in here in there some fussy cut leaves and flowers from the vellum paper.
I placed my photos in the middle of the wreath design and then tucked in some Prima flowers around. I used some pieces from the ephemera pack as well then I've written a short note about the photo using the American Craft pen from a previous CK kit to complete the layout.
I really love how this turned out! The colors and patterns in this month's kit are super sweet!
That's all for today and I hope to see you again in my next post.
Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting!
Hello, CK friends! Donna here to share my first project using the June "Sweet Tea" kits. I used a mixture of items from the the main and junior kits to create today's project which is a spread in one of my TN inserts dedicated for memory keeping.
I used the acrylic paints in this month's Color kit featuring Bad Girls Couture Haute Mess Paints. The colors are amazing and they coordinate with the June kit so perfectly.
I fussy cut some of the flowers from the vellum paper and the Peachy Keen paper. I used a decorative border punch to add a bit of interesting detail to a couple of papers trimmed from the Seek Magic paper.
I stamped around the edges with using a Vicki Boutin stamp and Catherin Pooler orange ink, both from previous CK kits.
That's all from me today and I hope you liked my TN spread. Don't forget to leave a comment if you have any queries.
Thank you so much for dropping by and see you in my next post!
Hi everyone! It's Sue Plumb here again with another of my Ambassador team shares for you. Today's project is a 12x12" mixed media layout I created using the March "Wonderful You" Main Kit and Add On Color Kit.
For this layout I wanted to document some photos of my son from a couple of years ago when he got a new digger for our sandpit. I used the green / blue / yellow tones in the photos to dictate the colour palette for my page.
I started by combining some of the Art-C Sky Blue and Bright Yellow metallic paints from the Add On Color Kit to create the shade of green I wanted, then added a little water to thin it out. I then spritzed my cardstock with a small water spray bottle and used a wet brush to apply the paint to the page; adding extra water where needed to help the paint to spread. This helped achieve the loose, watercolor style look I was after.
Next, I took the Bright Yellow Art-C paint again, but this time I applied it straight from the bottle by drizzling it around my page over the top of the green paint before leaving it to dry.
Once the paint were completely dry, I added a little stamping with some blue ink before I started adding some papery layers. I used a variety of patterned papers from the main kit from Studio Forty and Webster's Pages; cutting them into different sizes and shapes.
I used two Rosie's Studio tags tucked in amongst my layers, tying one with a short piece of ribbon from the kit packaging. I also added a flower that was fussy cut from the Webster's Pages Over the Rainbow paper in the kit. Once all my layers were in place, I added some frayed gauze for added texture before sticking my photos on top.
To embellish my page, I fussy cut the words happy day and smile, along with the large heart from the Webster's Pages Happy Day paper. I then added some torn pieces of a Studio Forty Super You Tape strip sticker and a couple of Rosie's Studio puffy heart stickers. Finally, I added my title using the American Crafts Silver Holographic Thickers and my journaling with a felt pen and I was done!
Thanks so much for stopping by the Clique Kits blog today so I could share this layout with you. I will be back again with another project to share soon.

Hi everyone! I better start by introducing myself - my name is Sue Plumb and I come from the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains in Queensland, Australia where I live with my hubby; our three kids - daughter Brielle aged 10, and twin sons Hunter and Kaden aged 6; and our cat, Genghis.
I began scrapbooking approximately 10 years ago, shortly after the birth of my daughter. Since that time, my work has evolved from a very simplistic paper-based style, to where it is now - which is far more artistic and often incorporates bright colour, mixed media and eclectic elements. I guess you could call me a "box of chocolates" scrapper, because you never know what you're gonna get!
I am currently on several design teams including Australian manufacturers Cocoa Vanilla Studio and Colour Blast; and US manufacturer Viva Las VegaStamps. I am also a design team member for the Scrap the Girls challenge blog.
I am super excited to be sharing my first project as a Clique Kits Ambassador today using the March "Wonderful You" Main Kit and Add On Colour Kit. I have had SO much fun creating with this kit, and can't wait to share all my projects with you this month.
For my first page, I created a 12x12" mixed media layout featuring some photos of one of my sons. These pictures worked perfectly with the super hero themed Studio Forty papers and stickers that were in the kit.
I began my page by creating a layered mat for my photos to sit on. I used various pieces of the Studio Forty patterned papers, along with some of the blue tissue paper that the kit was packaged in.
Amongst my layers I also tucked in a couple of the Pretty Little Studio watercolor tags (tied with twine), and added some torn pieces of the Studio Forty Super You Tape strip stickers.
Once I had all the papery layers in place, it was time for some paint!
I used the gorgeous Art-C Sky Blue metallic paint from the Add On Colour Kit to drizzle over the top of the papers. Because this is a heavy body acrylic paint, it meant that it was able to hold its shape well, and was ideal for adding dimension to my page. The nozzle made it so easy to squeeze the paint out across my page and I absolutely loved the metallic shine too.
Once the paint had dried, I added some black cotton thread on top of my layers before adding my photos on top. I used some scrap cardboard (from a cut up pizza box) to the back of my photos to help pop them up a bit.
For my title I used one of the exclusive Bramble Fox acrylic words combined with some Pretty Little Studio alpha stickers.
I created a small layered cluster at the top of the page for my typed journaling strips (which also helped balance my overall design). I then finished off my layout by adding a few Studio Forty Super You Clear Stickers and some tiny red splatters using the Art-C bright red paint from the Add On Colour Kit. (I simply watered it down until it gave me a thin enough consistency to be able to splatter it with a brush.) And I was done!
Thanks for stopping by the Clique Kits blog today, I will see you again soon with another project!

Jodie here with you today with a classic black, white and gold card set.
One thing I love about a scrapbooking kit is the ability to pull different elements from it to create a totally different mood in your projects for the month. This card set is completely different to the bright and fun travellers notebook layout and the sweet mixed media style travellers notebook spread that I've created with the November Seneca Falls Main Kit already.
The main elements I've pulled from the kit for these cards are the Amy Tangerine Hustle & Heart gold foil die cut specialty paper, the black and white floral paper, and the die cut wreath ephemera piece.
I also pulled some essentials from my stash, some white cardstock, black cardstock and a couple of dies.
For both cards I used the leafy circle cut file that is the special edition free cut file from the Clique Kits collaboration with Spiegelmom Scraps this week as part of my background.
For this card I cut the file in white cardstock on my Silhouette, then trimmed it to the same size as my card. Then I backed each of the leaves with the specialty paper, and adhered it to my card.
The November Clique Kits Colour Kit includes the absolutely gorgeous 'Grateful' stamp set from Avery Elle. To create my sentiment I've stamped the Grateful stamp on white cardstock, curving it a little bit so that it fits into the space left by the wreath once it is layered over the top of it.
I've also created a shaker pocket with some foam tape and sequins from my stash and some packaging from the kit, and layered the wreath from the ephemera pack (which I've turned upside down so it matches my theme for this project) over the top of that. Then I die cut a bow from the specialty paper and adhered it to the top of the wreath with some gold thread, and called this card done!
My second card is really clean and simple, but I love the contrast to it.
This time I used the same leafy circle cut file cut from white cardstock, and trimmed it down to half the card size, on the diagonal. I trimmed the black and white paper to be the other half of that diagonal, and edged it with some scalloped black cardstock.
I stamped the Thankful sentiment from the Avery Elle stamps onto a die cut circle that I popped up on foam tape, and added a few black splatters. I adore these scripty font sentiment stamps from Avery Elle and I can see me using them a lot in my projects. I was really impressed with how crisply they stamp on the page.
I die cut another bow from the specialty gold foil paper, slipped a paper clip over the die cut circle and adhered the bow.
I love the contrast of the black and white with the texture of the cut file and pops of gold in these cards.
Even if you didn't get a chance to check out the collaboration with Clique Kits and Spiegelmom Scraps this week, you can still pop by the Clique Facebook Group and grab this gorgeous free leafy cut file.
