Clique Kits: May 2015 Blog Share

Welcome!! So glad you are joining us today for our May Blog Share! I enjoyed working with this kit. The colors and patterns are really universal! Today, I will be sharing two layouts I created.

Rent A Family
Matt & I get the opportunity from time to time to "watch" our dancers. This past weekend at a dance competition, we had two of our dancers spend the night and we drove them down to the dance competition. We called ourselves a "Rent a Family". I would "rent" anyone of our dancers. They are all well behaved and keep us entertained with their wacky personalities.

My second layout, I decided to play with color. I'm still new at using Gelato's, but decided to play around with them. I think using a lots of color works with this kit as the papers have so many colors threaded through. I also highlighted this journal card that was included in the kit. I love all the colors and the water color look.

Thanks for joining us today! Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win this awesome May Kit: Carnival!

Clique Kits: April Blog Share

I can't believe ONE year ago we launched our first kit! Here we are a year later with sold out subscriptions and a wait list. It really is awesome to be apart of this company to help put together fantastic kits to help you all document your memories.

The challenge:  Celebration Month!
Show us a celebration of any kind for this month's Pep Rally- it could be a birthday, anniversary, wedding, reunion, or just an everyday party...you can either show us in a layout, make a card for any celebration, or  show us how you use your supplies for party decor-the sky's the limit!

My first layout is my "Celebration" Layout! The photo was from last 4th of July and Spock was playing outside with my nephews.
I was REALLY busy with this kit. I even have projects completed that I haven't even photographed yet.

Here is layout #2. I love my puppy (can you tell). This is one of him sleeping one afternoon.

Layout #3 is about me.  It is very rare that I wear my glasses and to take a picture is even more rare. But it is part of me and why not celebrate it. I also played around with water colors on this layout.

Layout #4 is again of my puppy. This picture was taking when we took a trip out to the lake last summer. He loves looking out the window in the truck.

I'll be sharing more April projects and Clique Kit: Spring Cards on my Instagram and Creative Facebook page in the next week or so. So, please follow to check out more!

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!

The challenge:  February is the month of love, which of course means gifts of sweet treats all around!

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.

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!!

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.
