Today I have a simple and sweet mixed media layout to share using the November 2018 Clique Color Kit. You can watch how I made the background and also how I put together the layout in two short videos on the Clique Kits You Tube channel here and here.
As a scrapbooker who frequently uses mixed media on my layouts I am so thrilled that Clique Kits is now providing this option as an add on to the monthly kits. You can pick up this month’s kit right here.

This is a Halloween layout using the Halloween sampler kit from my Etsy shop. A sampler kit is like a bag of swag from a variety of collections that work well together and are an economical way to supplement your stash with theme supplies without breaking the bank or ending up with way more than you need. The Halloween papers are from Paperhouse productions and American Crafts products. The common theme is plaids combined with bold and modern black and white Halloween patterns. My favorite is the cut apart journaling cards from Pebbles Midnight Haunting. The kit also includes paper and ephemera from the brand new Pebbles collection Spooky Boo.
Here you can see how I used the spider web doilies in the kit as you would use a cut file! This was kind of a time saving hack for this layout if I’m being honest!
Here are some more closeups:
I had so much fun putting together some of my recent Halloween faves and I hope you have a blast celebrating Halloween!
To create this look I used gelato water soluble pigment crayons with a waterbrush to get a watercolor wash effect. Then I used a fringe scissors on strips of paper from the Paige Evans Pick Me Up 6×6 patterned paper pad and stitched them down vertically. This layout was the perfect place for the mini weaving embellishment from the Clique Kits February release. If you would like to pick one up, use my code to save 10% GIA10
I am really glad that I finally have a layout about one of my happy places in life- my comfy bed. Have you made any layouts about your home sweet home?
Aloha! Today I am sharing a layout posted a while back on the Clique Kits blog during the month of November 2017. The November Cornucopia Main and Traveler’s Notebook kits are both so beautiful and honestly two of my favorite kits last year. These kits feature two different collections- the Illustrated Faith Gratitude Documented collection and the Pretty Little Studios Tales and Dreams collection-both complement and blend beautifully together! There are also some elements from the Pebbles Girl Squad collection that are just too cute!
I decided to treat one lucky friend to one of these past Clique Kits (Cornucopia) because lately it is hard to come by a la carte kit listings (since subscriptions have been selling out!) and I think it is important to see with your own eyes just how beautiful these kits are! To enter to win a kit on me, please follow my blog and Instagram and also like and follow Clique Kits! Leave me a comment that you have done so. The winner will be selected one week from today, on March 13, 2018.
Just showing this 8 1/2 x 11 layout that I posted on the Clique Kits monthly kickoff post today. This layout features a hand stamped background that I previously made in this process video using an art stamp from the Clique Kits store and the We R Memory Keepers CMYK inks.
This layout gets away from my recent pattern of doing backgrounds with a lot of white space. In fact, quite the opposite it is full of pattern, color, and layering with a tremendous amount of texture from stitching and the different textures in the art stamps. The outcome does reflect the happy and carefree mood of the layout titled “Life is Lovely”
I also used some chipboard, an embellishment that I have gotten away from using! Is there something you have been doing recently that is outside your comfort zone? I found that it really challenged me to be more creative.
Now take a peek at the beautiful February 2017 Clique Kit Bee You. You can purchase one here and/or subscribe today for a 3 or 6 month subscription which would begin in March.
Isn’t it gorgeous? Thanks for stopping by!
