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!

Lacey Gasper (You are here)
Gina Lideros (Your Next Stop)

Today I'm going to share pieces of a mini album. This is a works in progress and the whole album will be shared next week at the Clique Kits Blog Share on Wednesday, September 24. But I really wanted to show how I used the die cuts in this album!

Lets start with the cover. I layered on a layer of the chalkboard paint and using a chalkboard bistro marker I wrote the word happenings.
 The inside cover I covered with specialty paper I had in my stash and then layered on top a die cut from the Cut Shoppe! I love the texture and visual interest it gives.
 I also love the notebook doodle hearts from the Cut Shoppe. I cut these out multiple times and used them throughout the album.
 This is one of my favorite journal cards I added to this album! I cut the Today Word Bubble from the Cut Shoppe's - Just Sayin' cut file. I cut this in vellum, placed it on one of my favorite journal cards from the kit and splattered it with white paint.
 This last page I have added those doodle hearts again (Told you I LOVE them!!)
Lets not stop there! We have prizes!! Don't forget to comment on each blog during the hop for a chance to win ONE of TWO great prizes!!

Clique Kits Blog Share - August 2014


Welcome to the August Blog Share for Clique Kits! This months kit is called Glam Camp. If you love what you see, there are a few kits available in our shop a la carte! Clique Kits also has a few subscriber slots open. Join us before they are sold out :)

Now onto the challenge and my projects for the blog share.

August Challenge: "Wild and Free"

My first layout features a photo of myself. I cut out the phrase "wild & free" from the August printables. The background was a little bold for what I wanted for this layout, so I brushed white acrylic paint, watered down, on the background. I also LOVE the large flowers on MME: Ashbury Heights - Garden. So I cut a few out and placed on my layout.

 Close up of a group of flowers and the photo.
 The second layout is of my puppy at the lakes. I used a kraft paper background and added die cuts to the lower portion that were cut in kraft. I love the texture it adds without drawing too much attention away from the photos and the rest of the layout.

Finally, I created a birthday card using this kit! I love this sign die cut (available in the Clique Kits digi store). I cut it out in kraft paper and the sign and grass in pattern paper, which I stamped on. The sign pole I placed a stencil on top and rubbed on some brown ink. I love the burnt texture it gave.

Thanks for joining us today. Here is the line up for today's blog share! Next up, please visit Student of the Month (Guest Designer), Katie's blog!

Under the Stars

I love summer! This is not a secret to those I know and that are close to me! I love summer! When I saw the Simple Stories: Simple Set - Under the Stars, I knew I had to get my hands on it! At first I thought, when would I use this?!? But then I realized we would be spending quite a few weekends out at the lake this year! So it only made sense that this collection was in my stash.

What I LOVE about Simple Sets by Simple Stories?!? It is enough supplies to create a perfect amount of projects without getting bored of the paper line or it your projects looking too similar. The Simple Sets come with (4) double sided pattern paper, (2) 12x12 Journal Card - cut aparts, and (2) 6x12 Sticker sheets.

Now here are two layouts I created with this set. I actually created three,  you can see the third one on the Clique Kits blog - Frozen In Time.


These kits are just so perfect to me! I have a few scraps left that I can whip out another layout or even some cards. And plenty of stickers left over! I highly recommend these Simple Kits!

thanks for joining me today! I hope you have a scrap filled rest of your week!

CLique Kits - July Projects

Hello,
Thanks for joining me again today. I want to share more projects using Clique Kits July Kit - A Midsummer Nights Dream. You can buy this a la carte in the Clique Kits shop right now! Sign-up for the Kit Club (no minimum month commitment) for  $29.99 (plus shipping). Subscriptions open to international residence!

Okay now for a few projects I created with the July kit!

First layout is of breakfast I was preparing at the lake the other weekend. I love the color of the fruit in the bowls against the island butcher blog and cutting board! I used mainly neutral tones on the layout itself and popped it with yellow!

This layout I used scraps from the kit! Many of the 2x2 insta looking cards (which were on a 12x12 sheet). I layered them with pattern paper and loaded them with photos, stickers, ephemera, die cuts and other little bits & pieces. This project highlights our weekend at the lake the other weekend.

I also made a card with this kit. I used a embossing folder to add some texture to white cardstock and highlighted a die-cut from the July Kit (available in the Clique Kits digi shop).
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you found a little inspiration! Join me tomorrow for a few layouts I created using the Simple Stories - Under the Stars Simple Kit.

Have a scrap happy day!

Clique Kits Blog Share - July 2014

Welcome to my blog! I'm so excited to share a few projects with you today using the July Clique Kits - A Midsummer Nights Dream!! I love the summer feel of this kit and open ended uses for this kit! Today I'm going to share a few projects with you! Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a few more projects using this kit! I got a total of 5 layouts and 2 cards made out of this kit and still have a few leftovers!

Of course Clique Kits LOVES to challenge our clique members so this months challenge is:
The challenge: "Captured on Film"Ideas: using filmstrips, viewfinders, or polaroids on your layout, and/or featuring photos from a play, seeing a play / production or a movie (think sitting in your seats or photo outside with the marquee.  **Remember no photography during a production unless noted it is okay.**
The view finder was my  Film aspect of this layout. I added some die cuts from June, July and Pinkfresh to my layout. And of course highlighted my photo of my husband and puppy sleeping one morning. These two are beyond sweet in the morning. I see how they sleep as I'm usually the first one awake. Spock adores Matt and Matt adores Spock!

I also want to share a card I created with this kit! The Crate Paper Open Road ephemera became a focus on this card. I layered three different ones on this page and added the Echo Park stickers to enhance these lovely cards!!
