Hello! It's Heather Doolittle here with you to share a fun spread that I recently made in my traveler's notebook!
I am SO loving documenting little life stories in my TN. I have a notebook for documenting our summer adventures going camping and lake-ing and this is a spread in that. I wanted to tell the story of how I finally got up on the wakeboard this year! I've been working each summer trying to get it, and I can finally get up and ride around the lake! (If you aren't familiar, a wakeboard is basically like a snowboard for water.) This was definitely a historical moment for me!
I love using a patterned paper on one side of my spread and leaving the grid base paper on the other side so I can write my journaling straight onto the page. I thought the sunshine paper in the Regatta kit was perfect for a lake-themed page!
I loved the palm and fern leaf diecuts (they're probably my favorite pieces of the diecut pack!), so I knew I had to sprinkle them across the page. I love a diagonal design! I filled in the gaps of the diagonal eye line with some puffy stickers and other little diecuts from the kit. I even peeled all but the top layer of chipboard from the "you did it" phrase and used some wet glue to stick it down. I thought that was just too perfect not to use on this page!
I love using white alphabet letters because you can color them in with whatever color you like! I used a black sharpie this time.
Have you tried out documenting in a traveler's notebook yet? Although I used the scrapbook kit on this spread, Clique Kits also offers a traveler's notebook subscription to help get you started creating!
I have a mixed media layout to share with you today as well as a process video showing all the tips and tricks I used....First up lets take a look at all the fun details on my layout!
I loved using my Regatta kits to create this fun, summery layout about Bubbles...bubbles scream summer!
Have A Lovely Day!

Hello Lovelies, Theresa here today to share a layout using mixed media! I love putting paint to paper, so today I grabbed my Gelatos, the Hello Sunshine Cut File, and my Regatta kit to have some fun!
My first steps, before I even really knew what I wanted my layout to look like, was to cut the Cut File and gather my supplies. For this layout I used Bazzill card stock called African Daisy, Faber Castell Gelatos in Tangerine, Mango, Butterscotch, and Lemon, my photo and all the goodies in the Regatta kit!
One of my favorite ways to use die cut files from the Silhouette is to trace them onto my background paper and use those as paint guides. This is the perfect cut file to paint a sunset by, so I lightly traced the lines I needed. I applied color using the Gelatos in an alternating pattern around the circle. There is enough color on the page that I only needed to color inside the lines from the cut file, and then I used water and a wide paint brush to bring the color out onto the rest of the page. You can always adjust how vibrant the colors are by adding more water, and then a little tip: use a paper towel roll to absorb the excess water from your page once you are done.
Once the colors were down and the paper was dry, then I could add the patterned paper below and layer all the fun embellishments onto the page. I layered several of the patterned papers behind the cut file, which set the tone for colors that would be repeated around the page. I am loving the reds, navy, and light blues in this kit!
My photo is one of our boys, Nick and Addison, from a trip we took to Savannah in 2013. It is so hard to believe this was already five years ago! I was completely inspired by the wood grain patterned paper as a sort of boardwalk on the page, so I layered the acrylic flip flops on top and then built an embellishment cluster from that.
I love using a variety of textures and materials in my embellishment clusters, and this kit has just the right mix of acrylic, cardstock, chipboard, rubber, and even the tiny felt bow. Oh yes, I put a red felt bow on a boy layout and it is adorable. Notice how I have used the flip flops as a directional element on the page: they lead your eye right up the page, and the splashes continue that direction up and around the sun.
For my journaling, I placed it directly underneath the photo and wrote it directly onto the woodgrain paper. Again, the flip flops create an easy place to put the words, and this page becomes asymetrical. Photo + words on one side lower, cut file + paint on the opposite side top. This is a page design that I repeat over and over again. I encourage you to try it!
To repeat these awesome colors on the page again, I layered the photo on top of a few of the patterned papers. The photo needed a little something to help it pop off the background, so I began with the type, and then a tiny bit of red polka dot. Whenever I layer papers like this I use my regular scissors and start with the photo, cut around it, and then add pieces underneath that. Also, the red again balances with the red I used behind the cut file.
What a fun kit to work with, and such a fun result. Thank you for joining me today! Are you using your Regatta kit too? Please be sure to share with us, we would love to see!
Hello there! It's Heather Doolittle here with a layout that I created using some mixed media along with this month's Regatta kit! I think this layout gives this kit a whole different 'look,' so I hope you'll check it out!
I didn't really have any ideas to use mixed media other than playing around with some paint. So, I took out some different acrylics and started layering them on a scrap piece of white cardstock! In general, I let each color of paint dry before adding another color-- I didn't want the colors to get muddy. I used an old gift card to smear the paint around. I wanted to use some stencils in with the smears, but I have lost my stencils since we have moved last fall and can't find them! Waah!
One of my favorite layers is the pen scribbling layers. All I do is write some sentences in really loopy and messy handwriting. I try not to make it legible. :) After I scribbled some words down, I added some more paint layers on top.
After I finished all of the painty layers and they dried, I used a circle punch and punched out some circles from the "patterned paper" I just made! After I placed the circles onto the layout, I stitched some of them down with my sewing machine.
I love that woodgrain patterned paper that is included in the scrapbook kit this month! I think I have used up most of that paper on just my few projects this month! I think the gray texture really goes with the paint colors I chose.
I'm really happy with how this page turned out-- whenever you want to try some mixed media, but don't feel too inspired, just try smearing some paint around on a scrap piece of paper and then punch out some shapes from it!
Thanks for joining me today!

Welcome to sketch week CK friends! I love a good sketch and this one certainly is. I have stayed true to the sketch wanting to incorporate the fab free June rainbow cut file.
And here is my take on the sketch and it is all about sweet summer!
I started of by paper backing my rainbow and then machine stitching it. Before attaching to my page I lightly splattered my white base paper with black color shine. One I centred my rainbow I added my photo (of me admiring the view of my new sea side town recently located to). I then chose one of the gorgeous floral die cuts and attached with foam tape slightly over my matted photo. I then tucked under the flower die cut a sticker sentiment sticker from the kit. I finished this feature off by adding this gorgeous exclusive CK flair.
Of course I had add one of the beautiful butterflies with some scattered sequins from the kit.
I have added another CK cut file from the June kit but I cut the tropical floral bunch down so I had two of the flowers and leaves only. I paper backed them in yellow so they really stood out against the blues in the rainbow.
I created my title using the sparkle alphas and added some journalling under it. I finished off by adding some more of the sequins and a light splattering of black color shine. And there you have it, one summer inspired layout made easy with the wonderful sketch and June Horizon Kit.
Thank you for stopping by today and having a look. I hope you are enjoying your June Horizon Kit as much as I am!
Hello everyone! Today Ksenia here, and I want to share with you a layout with the second amazing June Sketch.
I using the April Winter Park Kit and May Riga Kit. For the layout I used paper by Pinkfreshstudio. First cut out the frame, and then cut out the hearts. I used two kits of alphabets for the title.
Hello Lovelies, Theresa here! Today I am sharing a layout I created using the June sketch as my inspiration. Have a look at the layout I made, and then I will share how I made it.
This is the June sketch. Notice how I have mirrored the sketch, as the people in my photo are walking towards the right of the layout.
My photo for this layout is from my daughter Natalie's fifth grade graduation from elementary school, so this is definitely a celebratory layout! I was inspired by the transparency in the June Horizons kit, so I layered it over white card stock. The key with transparencies is how to attach them to your layout, and in this layout I have used the We R Memory Keepers staple board.
Our sketch called for layering the photo on top of other patterned papers, so I cut several pieces from the Horizons kit. Notice how I have pulled the navy, as that is one of the colors in Natalie's dress. I also cut some of the floral die cuts from Bella Blvd. to form tags. Those colorful papers and tags provide a great contrasting background for the glitter alphabet!
I have kept my journaling very simple, only the who, what, when, and where written on a shipping tag. I also added just a few tiny puffy hearts from Pinkfresh Studio The Mix.
The sketch called for a rainbow effect coming from the photo, and of course there are many different ways to achieve that. I chose these felt flowers to cascade across the layout. They are from Freckled Fawn and I had to have them when I saw them in the shop here! They are so fun and colorful, and I used every last one.
One last little detail is the tag I added to the top right corner. This was another opportunity to attach the transparency to the page in a clever and pretty way. The word strips also make for nice journaling: Natalie and I always say I Love You More to each other so it seems very apropos to include that here!
This was definitely a fun layout to create and I have loved sharing it with you today! Thank you for joining me! Have you been using your Horizons kit this month? We would love to see, be sure to post on Instagram and tag us!
