Hello Clique Kit crafty friends!!! I am super excited to be a part of the Clique International Team. I created a scrapbook layout using pattern papers from the awesome Seasonal Kit | Cape May (cliquekits.com) that is currently on sale in the shop.
I normally use white cardstock as my base page; but the flower paper "Summer Lovin'" from Simple Stories was too gorgeous not to use. I wanted to add some texture to my page; so I distressed the edges. I used the Heidi Swapp Distresser tool from my stash to achieve it. I love how it makes some of the paper curl and other tear slightly.
I wanted the vibrant yellow statements on the paper "Simply Summer" from Fancy Pants to be the focus. I tend to always add staples somewhere on my layouts too. I added American Craft Thickers for my title from Sampler Kit | Heidi Swapp's Sunchaser (cliquekits.com) and used a star over the "i".
Instead of just matting the photo, I made a pendant to place the photo of my husband and I. I distressed the edges as well. All of the ephemera used was given dimension by adding one or two foam dots to them. The flower ephemera is from Jen Hadfield "Grateful Heart". You can find the flowers in the Add-on Kit | It's Easy being Green (cliquekits.com).
I hope you enjoyed my scrapbook layout!! Head over to the Clique International (cliquekits.com) shop and check out all of the items there.
Hello friends, Theresa here with another fun travel layout using the December Rainbow kit! Back in 2015 we took a weekend trip to Savannah and St. Simons Island, so I was inspired to create a layout for my son Nick's album. Here is my layout.
I began my layout with the best part, the photos, which I printed at 3 inches square with white borders. In my head I was thinking two photos with paper strips behind it, so I pulled out what I had from the kit. Papers, ephemera, everything. I pulled two paints I had, Spun Sugar and Mowed Lawn from Tim Holtz, and splattered a bit of them onto the black and white patterned paper.
Once I had my background dried, I laid out my photos and gathered some of the ephemera pieces from the Fancy Pants pack. I chose favorites that expanded the color palette of the layout. The title word Adventure stood out to me, so I began to add to that for my entire title. It needed a home base to stand out against, so the patterned paper strips came in handy here. I've used the alphabet Thickers in the kit to finish out the title, and popped the word Adventure up using pop dots.
Once the title was down, everything else was just gravy on top! I adhered all the fun bits and pieces that I love and that were able to be tucked in behind photos, around the title, anywhere that needed a little pop of color. Each piece that I added tells a part of this story: it was a road trip that we took at the spur of the moment (hence the Just Wingin' It die cut), we drove down in the car (hence the car die cut!) and just did whatever we felt like doing, and we discovered some really awesome things along the way.
Besides the ephemera I also have journaling, both stamped and hand written. I used the labels in the kit from Pretty Little Studio to add my hand written words. This place on St. Simon's Island, GA is home to the famous Lighthouse that Eugenia Price has written about in her historical novels. If you're looking for interesting reads about the south, look her up. Our kids had so much fun touring the grounds and climbing to the top of the lighthouse. My stamped sentiment is from the One Canoe Two rotary stamp and my date stamp is an old one from Target I've had for a few years now. Here is one last look at my layout.
Thank you so much for following along with me today on this fun adventure on St. Simons Island! See you again soon!
Hello, Réka here. First of all ... happy 2018 to all! I hope your New Years Eve celebrations were fantastic and you have a lot of new goals which you would like to reach in 2018 and I hope it contains lots of crafty time.
Today I have a new scrapbook layout to share with you that was really quick and easy to put together.
When I saw the gorgeous ephemera pack from Cocoa Vanilla: Bohemian Dream collection I knew I would like to use them for this photo.
The first thing I did was drop some mists using my Prima Watercolor palette onto the white cardstock. You don’t forget to can find some Prima Watercolor paint refills in the shop and remember you can use my code Reka10 to get 10% off your total purchase.
Than I have created one cluster under the photo and there is the other one on the top of my layout.
I love using different material on may layout, so I have made one bow from the Dear Lizzy: Ribbon and placed it under the photo.
When it was ready I have chosen the Cocoa Vanilla: Bohemian Dream - Gypsy Heart paper and added it to my layout.
In the end I added white machine stitching around my page.
And done! I really like how it turned out.
I hope you are inspired to create a quick layout using these stunning ephemeras. Thanks for joining me today. Réka
