Hello Clique friends, Valeska here again with you sharing a new layout for the blog. You know that I love to use stitching on my projects, and this is one example. I used the Sampler Kit Happy Blooms from Pinkfresh Studio .
On a white cardstock, I made a mixed media background with a yellow distress oxide. I stitched two pieces of different patterned papers on the left of my layout and then I placed my photos and decorations on the right side.
I also stitched a photo frame and other card near my photos. I placed the frame on the top of one of my photos and the card I put under the envelope.
I really love to use flowers on my layouts and these flowers die cuts are so fabulous. If you want to buy more, you can find it separately from the kit, and you can feel at ease using them.
This kit is full amazing details, it includes a wide variety of the embellishments in the collection. Like puffy stickers and alphabets stickers.
I hope you like it and get inspired to create beautiful projects with this wonderful kit available at Clique Kits store. Thank you for stopping by!
Hey everyone! Suzanne here, and if you know me, you know that I am not a fan of sketches. However, when I saw this sketch over on Pinterest, I immediately knew that I wanted to give it a go! I also had the perfect kit in mind to use for the sketch as well-the "Me Time" kit!
The Me Time kit comes with the most gorgeous printed watercolor papers so it wasn't hard to bring colors and patterns to the white background.
The ephemera pack that comes with the kit had the most perfect florals for this particular sketch. I originally thought I would go with the black and white ones, but found that these worked perfectly to add an additional pop of color to the page.
I pulled the title from an older kit, but the colors are complimentary and well just goes with my ladybug's big smile.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for more inspiration!
Happy Friday! I love it when I can use a color photo that looks great on the layout...especially with a lot of color! I love the photo with the hand mural...and I really did not want to change it to black and white to make it work for my layout. Sometimes, it can't be helped... but I happened to have some papers from Vick Boutin and it's perfect!
I used papers and embellishments from Vicki's Color Study Collection to complete this fun, colorful and lively layout. The products were given to me from Clique International and there may be a few embellishments left in the shop... click here to grab it! This gorgeous collection flew off the shelf. It's that pretty and awesome...
I love the color wheel paper, but I had to cut it down to make it work for me since this layout isn't 12x12. I decided to cut it in half and use it as a fun border. I created the tag using Elle's Studio's metal Nesting Tag Die! Metal dies come in handy for when you are looking for a particular embellishment you do not have... simply make it using some patterned paper. Elle's Studio has some really great metal dies. Check them out here!
Seriously, these embellishments!! And those gorgeous flowers! I added the gems to the flowers to make them sparkle. I used foam squares to mount down some of the stickers to add dimension. I do not like my layouts looking "flat." So when I'm using a lot of die cuts and stickers, I use foam squares and they work great!
I layered the flowers onto a floral die cut using foam squares. I could use a few more of these babies! They were hard to use because I love them so much.
I used some die cut labels at the bottom to help tell my story along with a tiny bit of journaling. I added some black watercolor ink platters and scribbled some ink here and there just for fun.
What do you think? What collections have you been using lately? I want to hear... leave a comment! Thanks for visiting today! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Happy September! It is Ali here with you today being inspired by Vicki Boutin's new collection, Color Study. If you haven't purchased it yet, I advise you to rush to the shop and buy whatever is left. You will want two of everything if you are like me!
This picture was taken of me in Las Vegas at the Seven Magic Mountains. I went there with two friends to run the Rock and Roll Half Marathon. We made a little detour to check out these bright fun boulders and love how bright the colors are in this photo. You can also notice the shadows of the other people checking out the exhibit. I was holding on to this picture for the last couple years because I was waiting for the perfect paper and embellishments to match these boulders. Well it was worth the wait! I am in love and inspired with Vicki's new collection.
I used two of her packaging inserts to create that rainbow burst coming out of the photo. I glued one of them flat to the mixed media background and cut the other package insert apart. I used foam tape to pop some of the colors off the page. I also used white stitching rub ons to add a little more texture to the rainbow burst. I love how all that color is radiating right off this page.
I completed the layout with stickers and ephemera from this collection. I hope this inspires you to add some color to your layouts.
Hello crafty friends! Rita here with a new layout using all beautiful goodies from the Clique International shop. I will link all the products (and similar kits) below, so you can check them out for yourself. I used the Watermelon Sugar Modern Documenter Kit and the Lazy Days paper pack to make this layout. I also made a sketch with Procreate for you, so you can easily make your own version. It's a simple but lovely composition and works for one or multiple photos.
As you can see on the sketch the photo is "framed" with different patterned papers. To make the layout more interesting I included a horizontal line, made with a stencil and structure paste. You can also use watercolor, acrylic paint, vellum etc. I chose a black and white photo to make the colors of all the papers and frames pop.
I used a stencil by Maggie Holmes from the "Garden Party" collection (from the sold out Versailles Kit) and only applied the structure paste on both sides (and not behind the photo!), so it wouldn't get too bulky.
Another detail I really like are the white enamel stickers on the borders of the patterned paper which correspond harmonically to the white background.
I hope you like my layout and sketch and feel inspired to make your own version of it. Don't forget to tag us on social media if you share your work. We always love to see what you create. Thanks so much for stopping by today and happy crafting!
Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a scrapbook layout that I created with the last of my Prima Marketing Nature Lover Kit. I was down to a handful of patterned paper scraps and some embellishments. The only full sheet of patterned paper I had was the black and gold foiled paper. This paper is absolutely gorgeous, but black backgrounds are not in my design wheelhouse. To help tone down the dark paper, I placed the Heidi Swapp Carefree Specialty Paper over top.
The beautiful foiled design peeks though the die-cut sections of the paper for just the right amount of black for contrast. This photo of my nieces and nephews was taken on my nephew's Bar Mitzvah and I thought that using the rainbow specialty paper upside down made the cutouts look more like menorahs. There aren't any rules in scrapbooking and I frequently use paper in different orientations for a more unique design.
I brought in more gold both under the photo with matting, and on top with a gold glittered heart.
The Swiss Dot Rayon Seam Binding added some whimsy to my design and also helped to cover the seam of the pieced together pieces of striped patterned paper.
The rub-ons and chipboard embellishments from this kit were just perfect to document my hike through a nearby forest. The rub-ons are thick enough to easily apply over photos and die-cut embellishments. If you're looking to stretch the life of the kits in your stash be sure to visit the New In and Bestsellers Section of the Clique Shop.
Happy Monday my crafty friends.. Sanjana here with my latest post for the Clique Kits Design Team. This layout was a bit challenging for me as I had to recreate a sketch which is very rare for me to do so. But luckily I found this beautiful sketch by Lisa Truesdell in the Studio Calico website. I recreated the sketch using the beautiful Obed Marshall “Buenos Dias” collection by American Crafts and loved the way it turned out. Here are some close ups of my layout.
And please don't forget to check out the process video for this layout linked below.. Thank You so much for stopping by.
Good morning friends! Nicole here with a cute mini album I created for my sister. Just recently, she had family pictures taken for my nephew, Henry's 2nd birthday celebration. As soon as she posted these photos, I snagged them and I knew immediately what papers I would use! I've been hoarding Heidi Swapp's patterned papers from the Carefree Collection for awhile now. We still have a few papers left in the shop!
To begin, I cut two pieces of Jen Hadfield's specialty paper (transparency) to measure 4x4 to use as the front and back of the album cover. Next, I cut several pieces of patterned paper to measure 4x4. I used metal border dies and tags to create borders and a tag from the scraps. I fussy cut the butterflies from Amy Tangerine's paper to use as embellishments.
Once I had all of my papers cut and my selection of embellishments, I started embellishing the pages. As you can see...you do not need a lot of embellishments to create a beautiful mini. Sometimes, all you need is pretty papers and some stickers!
I used a Cinch to bind the album together. It's easier if you bind the album first before embellishing. That is what I did. When binding, the important thing to remember is to add the back page to the front of all of your pages so that once the album is binded, it holds the wire in the back nicely when you flip the first page to the back.
Here are a few close-ups of the embellishments. Super simple, but beautiful! I used foam squares to add dimension. It makes such a big difference when layering embellishments.
Do you enjoy making mini albums? I must admit, I don't make them as much as I used to...but I am working on changing that! Thank you so much for visiting today.
Hi Clique friends. Tânia here today with you! Today’s prompt is Let’s get sketchy and guess what?? Am a bit terrible to get sketchy hahaha.
I guess my creativity freeze when need to make something based in another something. Never know if I should go literal or make a free interpretation. So, today I decided to shake it all up for a bit. Hope that´s ok.
Picked up this sketch from Pagemaps.com (http://www.pagemaps.com/jul21-pagemaps) and my first idea was to create an art journal page but then had so limited space for all the elements that decided to cut a scrapbook paper into the sketch measurements (8,5” x 11” ) and make a layout. This is the sketch I chose.
The truth is… It took me longer than I was expecting but I did it and am thrilled that I accomplished a creative challenge. Also, I’m very proud with the result.
I decided to use some papers from Vintage Artistry- Lilac kit that I've used before. This kit was just wonderful and had so much beautiful things that need to make a few projects with it. I love explore the same kit for different projects (who said that we need to use everthing into just one project. hahaha). To avoid monochromatic, added to it some new colours using some elements from a Mintay Papers tag book. (since the products that I have in this project are out of stock I left below some links with beautiful suggestions tho).
The sewing stiches give an extra boost to this layout. Don´t you agree?
Hope you feel inspired to explore the same kit in different ways and projects.
Hey everyone, it's Kate here and today I'll be sharing a fun project that happened quite by accident. I was doing some quick guestroom redecoration and bought some new picture frames months ago and unfortunately, if you know me, I am quite clumsy. Fast forward to this week, I opened the bag with the frames and I see broken the glass! Rather than be wasteful, I decided to do an altered "glassless" project.
I'm still clinging onto summer for at least another month, I'm all about hot temps and water! I was drawn to all the fabulous light, beachy and airy feels of the Lazy Days Paper Pack and couldn't wait to use it!
I took all the glass off and basically treated the open frames like you would a Travelers notebook or mini scrapbook page, trimming my papers down to 4 x 6, mounting a photo and then decorating the papers and also decorating the actual photos with Studio Forty Lazy Days goodies- chipboard elements, clear enamel dots, frames and also their awesome clear stickers from our Watermelon Sugar Modern Documenter Add-On - available in the shop! I think these clear (transparent) Studio Forty stickers are my new crush-they are fantastic quality, so versatile and just added the finishing touches to the designs!
As you can see, I did one of each kid and I just love how bright and cheery they are! You can't even tell that there's no glass (unless you are extremely closeup lol) so I hope you are inspired to make lemonade out of lemons. I also hope I inspired you to use your scrapbook supplies to jazz up easy home decor projects.
