January Clique Kit Layout

img_9458

Aloha! Today I am sharing a layout I made using the January Clique Kit called Hey, Sugar! This kit is still available to purchase here and is perfect for the month of love! I am one of those kind of corny girls who uses Valentine’s Day as a common theme pretty much all year long. I mean, when is it the wrong time to express love? Definitely check out all of the contents of this beautiful kit! And while you are there, many other fun Valentine’s Day products are available in the Clique Kits shop! And now for some close up views.

Clique into Summer: Hawaii Faves

 

IMG_6203

I used the Clique Kits Limited Edition Summer Kit to create a fun mini album which serves as a pictorial guide book to all of my favorite scenic and cultural sites on Oahu. We frequently have visitors who naturally want to take in all of the beauty and culture in Hawaii-so what better way to get my “extra” photos into an album I can keep on display for them to peruse! Most of these photos were taken during day trips, hikes, and other events but never made it onto a layout of that particular event or trip.

Here are some of the specs of this album! It is approximately 4 x 6 in dimensions, perfect for holding my 4 x 6 photos and designed to resemble a camera with a twist! This album features a zebra pattern cover. My cover also features a peek -a -boo wooden hand-marbled heart. Throughout the album I repeated the design of white gesso backgrounds, crab washi tape, and full page photos. Both of the cover items (zebra and marbled heart) are on clearance in the Clique Kits shop! The rest of this album was made very simply from the Clique Into Summer 2016 kit which features the Simple Stories collection You Are Here. It is perfect for my Hawaii Album! I hope you enjoy the flip through my mini album.

This month I used the Origins kit and one of the best selling add ons- the Maya Road steel geometric heart die – to create the major elements of this layout. First I used the die as intended to cut some of those lovely hearts from the Simple Stories Life in Color patterned paper. I also used the die as a template to cut two heart shapes from the Bella Blvd acetate paper in the kit and I used my WeRMemoryKeepers Fuse tool to adhere them into a pocket which I stuffed with sequins.

I was super excited about how this embellishment turned out! (sequins from Clique kits and Pinkfresh Studios). I used one of the mist colors that coordinates with the Origins kit (Diet Cola)  along with some watercolor paint to create a mixed media background for my layout.

These Prima watercolors have been flying off the shelves in the Clique Kits shop. They are so convenient in the adorable little metal box and the colors are so vibrant! I cannot wait until more colors are available!

I loved the mirror acrylic laser cut piece that was a CK exclusive in the April kit. It would make any layout extra special. And the Bella enamel hearts went perfectly with my yellow and greyscale color scheme on this layout! They really added a pop of happiness!

I finished my background with some Kelly Purkey stamps from my stash. I have found that where I used to sew, the fuse has become my new timesaver, for better or worse. Sigh.

I know you will enjoy the rest of the hop! Please leave comments for chances to win an April Kit, (or choice of prize of equivalent  value if you are already a subscriber), spread the word and invite all your friends- the more the merrier! Have a happy, happy day!

Tuesday’s Topic: A Quick Sketch Challenge

Sunday morning just for fun Erica posted a sketch challenge in the Clique Facebook group for subscribers and fans over at Clique Kits. I had two b&w photos I was planning to scrap anyway so I was up for the challenge and felt inspired by the sketch right away!

Using my April Clique Kit Origins plus a few simple additions from the Pinkfresh Studios Felicity collection die cut pieces and some washi tape from my stash (and from MAMBI Happy Planner collections) I was done with the layout in less than 20 minutes.  I really love the wood veneer title piece that was in this kit from Fancy Pants Designs and the little coffee cup was perfect for the photos of us on a lazy weekend morning having our morning coffee. Here are a couple of other views.

If you would like to join the fun and are not already a member of The Clique simply request an invite to the group or email for an invite to info@cliquekits.com or erica@cliquekits.com.
