Hi everyone! It's Sue Plumb here again to share my final Ambassador project using the March "Wonderful You" Main Kit. I have had so much fun creating with this kit and sharing my work with you. For my final piece, I have a 12x12" layout featuring my gorgeous daughter, who loves nothing more than drawing in her sketch book (even when we go to the park!)
I started this page with the polka dot print Cool / Kaboom paper by Studio Forty as my base, cutting a piece from the large chevron print Fast / Dreamy to layer over the top.
I used a paper doily, along with some blue tissue paper from the kit packaging as a mat to define my focal area; then mounted my photo on some cardboard (cut from a pizza box) to pop it up from the layers below.
I framed around my photo using a number of floral pieces that were fussy cut from the Webster's Pages Over the Rainbow paper and complimented them with a few floral pieces of Rosie's Studio acetate ephemera. I also added two tags (one Rosie's Studio, one Pretty Little Studio), which I tied with some frayed twine.
I added some messy white cotton thread on top of each of the floral clusters for soft texture; and then used the Rosie's Studio the simple things make me happy acetate piece as my title. Alongside that I added a small Rosie's Studio puffy heart sticker.
That's all from me. I have so enjoyed my time with Clique Kits - a big thank you to Gia and the rest of the CK team for having me on board and giving me the opportunity to share my work with you!

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.
In the meantime, you can find me on my social media channels here:
Hello Friends! Maryám here with you today to share a new project made with the March 2019 Wonderful You Kit from Clique Kits. For today's post, I created a very simple Traveler's Notebook spread. From one of the Webster's pages paper I fussy cut flowers and put them at the top of the left page and the bottom of the right page. I also added some of the green plaid patterned paper on both sides, the photo on the right side, and the title and journaling on the other side.
What I'm documenting in this project, it's a photo of an apple juice from Starbucks. It may seem silly for you, but I love documenting my everyday stories because simple things are the best. You can learn more about the story of the photo on my journaling.
Here are some close-ups:
I hope you liked this project! Let me know if you have any questions.
Have an awesome Thursday!
Hello, lovelies! Donna here with a new scrapbook layout using the September "Farmhouse" Main kit. This kit is just beautiful, I so love it.
There's still a couple of kits left so hurry and go to the store to grab it!
Here is the layout I made for today. It's really simple but I love how it turned out
I cut the "thankful" cut file several times and adhered it together so i has depth even without foam tape. I used one of the papers in the kit to mat the stenciled/color splattered white cardstock. I also cut a couple of strips of paper to create vertical edge borders.
Embellished the layout with a mixture of fussy cut and ephemera die cuts.
I love the combination of colors in this kit, super pretty
I hope my project inspired you to create something today!
Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting!
Hello Lovelies, Theresa here today sharing a layout I created following the September sketch! I love a great sketch for how easy it helps pull a layout together, and this month's sketch works beautifully with the September Farmhouse kit.
This is the layout I will be sharing with you today! I was loving the pinks and greens this month, and I have used the black and white as lovely neutrals as well.
One of my favorite things about using sketches is that you can re-imagine any of the elements in any way you wish. In this layout, for example, I made one of the background patterned papers my mixed media element instead of paper. I took my Prima Art Alchemy paints plus a really wide, dry paint brush, and painted simple strokes onto my background.
Then, once my background was fully dry, I began adding the other papers and elements to complete the layout. I chose patterned papers that contrast against each other, so the black polka dot contrasts against the pink and white background, and another tiny bit of pink and white on top of that.
I have used some bits of ribbon from my stash as a little embellishment on the side, and it gave me an opportunity to include one of the little gold pin included in the kit!
I probably have my photos a bit larger than the sketch shows, so my title is going above the left photo. I have used one of the kraft tags, and also layered a few more word strips on top of that to incorporate a bit more color to the tag.
My photos for this layout are from my daughter's 11th birthday so I definitely wanted a feminine feel to this layout. The floral die cuts in this kit are perfect, so I have layered them over and under this photo. They repeat the pinks in the layout and also lead your eye down and around the page. Here is one more look at this fun, happy page.
Have you been working with this month's sketch and kit? We would love to see, so be sure to share and tag us. Use #cliquekits. Thank you for joining me today!
Hello Lovelies, it's Theresa here to share more ideas for our Product Focus. This week we are creating layered embellishments which are just awesome for using supplies and getting layouts completed. I am going to create four assymetrical embellishments using elements from the September Farmhouse kit, plus one layout.
To begin with, I chose a photo of our son Addison that I had taken recently for back to school. Addison is our oldest, going into tenth grade this year, and the wood grain, green, and yellow in this kit suit his photo well. I laid down a layer of gesso and some paint splatters onto my page, just to break up the wood grain and lighten my layout a bit.
My photo is vertical, so I knew I wanted an assymetrical layout with photo on one side. I grabbed a few extra things from around my desk and started laying some elements around the page, and realized I could do several assymetrical layered embellishments inspired by this one layout.
We will come back to the layout, but let's create these embellishments first! These are the items I used to create these strips:
These are the four embellishment strips laid out for you to see. I created each one to be oriented in a different direction and the idea is for the strips to border on the edge of a photo or on the edge of your patterned paper. I love this idea because once they are all done I can create four different layouts!
Each strip began with the patterned paper or marketing strip from the papers in the kit. They are the home base for the embellishment cluster and everything else grew from there. For the cluster above, I added the punched starbursts underneath the strips, a leaf and banner die cut, and word art. The word art is adhered using pop dots to add dimension. I also wrapped a bit of twine around my fingers and adhered that underneath all the layers as well.
For the next cluster, I again began with the patterned papers and a doily. This one is a vertical orientation, so I added a die cut arrow, a leaf, and some word art. Using the doily on this one gives a great home base for the horizontal word art so it doesn't look out of place. Instead of using chipboard I used one of the flair buttons included in the kit! Again the twine adds more texture to the piece.
My third embellishment starts with patterned papers and a doily, and this time I have added a banner, the ribbon, and a chipboard piece. This one has a horizontal orientation and the photo could go above on the layout, or the cluster could go at the top of the page.
For my layout, I chose to use a vertical cluster. This one uses two strips of patterned paper and three shaped labels punched from the yellow patterned paper. I also added a leaf, heart, and banner from the die cuts, plus a chipboard embellishment. Notice the banner overlaps the photo a bit, and the arrow on the heart points inward toward the photo. Again twine peaking out from underneath it all adds more dimension and ties all these elements in with the background.
Of course my layout also need a title and journaling, which was so easy to add. I used the Pinkfresh Studio alphabet in the kit and repeated the vertical direction on this layout. Everything on this layout leads your eye upwards! Here is another look at the full layout.
The best part about having this layout done is knowing that I can easily create three more layouts using these embellishment clusters! How about you? Have you been creating with your Farmhouse kit this month? We would love to see, so be sure to share with us on social media and use #cliquekits.
