March 2015 Blog Share

Happy March!! Thank you for joining us today for the Clique Kits Blog share! I just ADORE the March kit! I couldn't WAIT to break into it and scrapbook! Of course, every month Clique Kits likes to challenge their blog participants. So here is the March Challenge.

March Challenge Add a Pop of Neon to your Project. 

I did just that with my first layout! Using the background diecut, I cut this out in kraft paper and than painted it with hot pink paint. I love the black and & white brush stroke paper, so I placed that die cut on top of this paper. It really added the pop I wanted!

The picture on this layout is of my dad & I right before he walked me down the aisle. I used a Pinkfresh Studio epoxy frame (from last April or June kit - I can't recall which one) to frame the picture and layered various embellishments from the kit! I also used the AlteNew origami stamp set to stamp the butterfly (now sold out, but we have another awesome AlteNew stamp Painted Flowers).
Supplies used: Clique Kits (March Kit 2015 - sold out); Clique Kits: March Cut File; AlteNew: Origami Stamp Set.

My second layout is of my puppy, Spock. This also has pops of neon against the very simple background. I used the really awesome transparencies to pop against the simple neutral background. These pictures were from last summer. My little pup loves big sticks and running around the backyard. This kit was perfect to highlight his spunky side.
Supplies: Clique Kits: March 2015 Kit; WRMK: Clearly Bold - Wood Stickers (from my stash)

I've had so much fun with this kit and still have so much more to use; which I can't WAIT to use up!

Of course we have a PRIZE giveaway today, so don't forget to leave a comment on my blog and all blog along the hop! A winner will be chosen out of all the comments, so the more blogs you comment on the better your odds are! Hopefully today is your Lucky day!

For the FULL line-up, go to the Clique Kits Blog.
You should have arrived from Erica's Blog.
Your next stop the card guru herself, Tyra! Can't wait to see what she has put together this month!

Thank you for joining us this month!!

Bonus points if you too celebrate Galentine's Day with your BFF's!

I have created a layout with two of my favorites; my husband, Matt and our puppy Spock. So as for as something sweet, that puppy of ours would be my something sweet.

Clique Kits - January Pep Rally


Happy January! Welcome to the Clique Kits Pep Rally. You should have arrived here from Jody's blog.

January Challenge
In the true spirit of Tailor Made, we want to see something sewn, stitched, embroidered, quilted, knitted, or crocheted on your project this month!  

Obviously one of my favorite subjects is my puppy. And I adore this picture of him, getting up close to the camera (since he is typically camera shy). I stitched the wood piece that was included in the kit to add some texture and a little love to the layout!

I made a Flipagram on how I put my layout together! Enjoy!


Your next stop is SARAH'S BLOG!!

Thanks for joining us today. And don't forget to leave a comment on each blog on the Pep Rally for your chance to win a prize from Clique Kits! Also, don't forget to check out the February kit. There are a limited amount of subscriptions left, so don't delay!

Have a scrap happy day!!

Holiday Cards - Post 2

Sometimes I get so busy I don't have a lot of time to create. That is why I love creating cards. They let me be creative, I can completed one in a short amount of time and feel like I accomplished something. Today I want to share with you some of the cards I created with the Clique Kits - Clique Cards: Holiday Edition Kit.

Card 1: I used a bunch of stamps, include something that were included in the kit and this set from Kaisercrafts and of course a bunch from my own stash to stamp this cards background. I layered on top some ribbon from the kit, the flair from the kit and I die cut the frame.

 I love this deer from the Dear Lizzy die cut Clique Kits had available (it was so popular it sold out).
 How about this darling deer?!? and that stamps! Both available inside the Clique Cards: Holiday Edition kit!






I still have lots of extras left from this kit and I hope to create more holiday projects with it. There is still one kit available in the Clique Kits shop. Get it before it's gone! I did create 11 cards with this kit and have one more card base left and LOTS of extras.

Thanks for stopping by today!

This month I created a mini album using the Heidi Swapp: September Skies - Daybook (there are still a few left in the shop). I love all the unique page sizes and pieces in this album!

My mini album is called: 30 Days of Happiness. I'm not one to create a December daily or really follow a day to day album. But not being restricted to the holidays or a strict theme, I think I got htis! Though I have not filled my pictures it. I've decorated pages of my album and it is ready for journaling and for me to print pictures.
Here is the cover. I love the pink, grey and navy in this kit!










There you have it! Now it's time for me to fill this baby with some of my favorite current pictures!

Clique Kits November Blog Share: Homecoming

Hello! Welcome to the November Pep Rally! Hope you have enjoyed some fabulous projects already on the tour. You should have arrived here from Erica's Blog. I love the creative talent she shares!

The November Pep Rally Challenge: Be inspired by the November Kit Mood Board! Show or tell the Clique what inspired your technique, layout, card, or other project using the November Kit Homecoming. 

I was inspired by the black and white imagery of this mood board for my layout.
This is a picture of my puppy and I. I played up the yellow, black, white and gray papers in the kit, as well as the embellishments. This year I've found my self really drawn to neutral layouts with pops of color. This is also the first 8 1/2" x 11" layout I've done in years.

I also paired the kit items with past kit items and an add on. I used the wood veneer arrow by PinkFresh Studios from the October kit and "Love This" is a die cut we offered as an add-on for this kit (sold out). I love how I can continue using items from kit to kit!!

Now it's time to hop over to Marcia's blog! If you are starting here, be sure to head back to the Clique Kits blog and start from the beginning.

Clique Kits - October 2014 Blog Share


Welcome to today's SUPER sized blog share! So much excitement is happening at Clique Kits with the introduction of our design team this month! Well enough talk, LETS get started!!

The challenge:  Tell us or show us in a project why YOU are glad to live in a world where there are Octobers!

I'm going to share a few projects today, starting with a layout. I layered a bunch of items on this layout, including the strips at the bottom of the 12 x 12 papers. I highlighted a photo from my recent trip to Las Vegas with some close friends and family.

Next up, I created two cards with this kit.  This first card, "Hello There", plays up the purples in the kit. I used a variety of the purple papers and embellishments to create this card.

This second card was created with scraps, and a stamp set by Sweet Stamp Shop. It is a mini card and the with final fold measures 3" x 4". Inside I stamped the word please.

Finally, I used the two little bags in the kit to create treat bags. One is everyday themed, while the other is Halloween themed.

For this second bag I used a Tim Holtz stencil and Tim Holtz distress inks to create the background pattern. The border at top is part of a strip from the bottom of the 12 x 12 paper and the stamp set is an old set from Pink Paislee. A great way to feature a tag on a card or layout! Or even slip into a pocket protector for those project life albums.

And our Design Team is joining us and our fabulous subscribers today!! Enjoy!

Clique Kits - September 2014 Blog Share


Hello, welcome to my blog and the September Blog share for Clique Kits. If you are starting here, be sure to head back to the Clique Kits blog and see what we have to share from the beginning!

Did you see we are also offering a FREE cut file for today's blog share?! I just adore the paper airplane that I created for printables and flair, so I turned it into a cut file!


Alright, time to share my project! I am sharing a layout today that I created with a photo I took last week. My boss's wife came by the office last Monday and brought me this sweet treat! A cookie and Vanilla Latte from Starbucks! It was the perfect treat on a Monday morning!

As you see, I really focused on the greens in this kit! I've been waiting for the perfect layout to use that beam paper and this one just fit! I also used the negative of a speech bubble cut file, cut from kraft paper, painted  and stamped "More Coffee Right Now" (stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop).

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Now, it's time for you to see even more inspiration with our September kit!
