Clique Kits October Blog Share

Hello everyone and welcome to the October Blog share!  You should have arrived from Gia’s blog but if you did not please CLICK HERE to start the share from the beginning!  This month our kit featured the lovely Happy Things collection by Pinkfresh Studio!  We love anything Pinkfresh and Kinnari is always coming out with new, unique and fresh products!  We just had to use this collection in a kit!  In addition we had some fun exclusives designed by our very own Lacey Gasper!  Can you say adorable!  The cactus flair and macaroon images in the exclusives are my favorite!  We also came out with our very first stamp sets this month!  They are now available in the CK shop so pick yours up today before they are gone!  Remember you can use the 10% off code available from any varsity team member!

Today I am sharing a layout I created with an older cut file avilable in the CK shop!  You can purchase this for only $1.99 and it comes with 3 designs!  This background is one of my favorites and it is so fun to back these cut files with pattern paper from the kits! 
I did keep the embellishing very light because I wanted the background and photo to stand out!  A simple title of #love with some foam Dear Lizzy Thickers from the Clique Kits shop and the layout was complete!  Adding pattern paper to the back of these cut files does take a little time but it so worth the end result!  I just love how this turned out and hope to see you create something fun with your cut files!  We have a great digital store with fun cut files and printables!  These are great to help stretch your kits!

I hope you enjoyed my layout today!  We have a fantastic hop for you today and we hope you leave today filled with inspiration!  If you are not yet part of our Facebook group we would love to have you!  Just CLICK HERE and join for a community filled with fun, laughs, inspiration and the most amazing crafters!  Your next stop on the blog share is Leeann!  Remember to leave some love along the way for your chance to win an October Kit!

Clique Kits-Layout Share

Hey Everyone!  I have been super busy over the last few months but feel super blessed to be doing something I love and with some amazing ladies!  Clique Kits has really taken off and we could not be happier!  We will be celebrating our one year anniversary in April and it has been such an exciting year!  If you have not yet been to the Clique Kits site I would love for you to take a moment and have a look around!  Today I wanted to share a layout I created with our February kit.  My scrap time has been reduced a little but I do try to make time to be creative!  Our February kit featured the Serendipity collection from Dear Lizzy and was jam packed with goodness!  I used one of the exclusive cut files for my background and backed the cut hearts with pattern paper from the kit.

Most of the embellishments came from the kit but I did pull some out from my stash like the Pinkfresh Studio pink dots and some wood veneers.  The photo is from my daughters 1st birthday party.  She was totally digging into her cake and having the best time!  She did eat the whole thing and then passed out in her chair!  I had so much fun creating this layout and the cut out hearts were a lot of fun to back with the pattern paper!  I hope you enjoyed my layout today!  Clique Kits has some amazing kits planned for the rest of the year!  You will want to get on the our wait list so you can enjoy a monthly kit delivered to your door!  It is like Christmas every month!  Each kit is carefully planned and packed with so many products including unique indie/homemade items and Clique Kits Exclusives!  We also have a private Facebook group for subscribers but if you are looking for a new kit club or community you can shoot me an email at erica@cliquekits.com and I can get you added to the group!  
Thanks so much for stopping today and I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Clique Kits February Blog Share and Giveaway

Hello!  Welcome to the Clique Kits February blog share and giveaway!  You should have arrived from the Clique Kits blog but if you were just stopping for a visit you can start this blog share from the beginning HERE.  This month our kit featured the beautiful Serendipity collection from Elizabeth Kartchner also know as Dear Lizzy.  We featured Elizabeth this month and you can read the Q&A with her HERE.

I had a great time creating with this kit and today I have two layouts to share with you today using the February kit.

This first layout is documenting my daughters school photo.  I do not normally document these school photos but her outfit matched perfectly with this kit!  Plus I always end up with a ton of the wallet sized photos so I might as well put them in her scrapbook!  I love the simple and clean look of this layout.

My second layout is a 8.5×11 layout and this size layout has become my favorite!  The photo is an instax of Michael and I at the bowling alley.  He is my best friend and I would be lost without him!  I used one of the exclusive Clique Kits cut files to fill the top of my layout and added a few embellishments around the hearts.  I kept the embellishing and layers to a minimum and I just love how it turned out!

Remember to leave comments along the way to increase your chances of winning a February kit!  Your next stop along the way is Jody and the whole blog share line up is listed below!  Today is also reveal day of our March 2015 kit J’adore!  We would love to have you in The Clique so subscribe today and get $5.00 off your first add-on order!  Subscriptions are limited so act fast!  Enjoy the rest of the blog share and enjoy your day!

Let’s Scrap

Can you believe August is almost over!  This is my last month as Design Team Member over at Let’s Scrap and my last sketch and layout to share with you as a DT Member!  I will definitely continue to use their amazing sketches and share them with you all on my blog from time to time!  If you have not already joined their fabulous community please head on over and join!  You will not regret it!  This week our sketch is sponsored by Scrapbook Studio.

To be entered into this weeks draw you must post your layout/card no later than September 3, 2013 at 11:59 pm (by the main page clock).  Here is a look at this weeks Let’s Scrap sketch!

I used the right side of this weeks sketch as my inspiration and came up with this layout of my fancy little wild child!

You can see that I only used one photo because like I have said before scrapping one photo is just my kind of layout.  I did not follow this weeks sketch exactly but I used it for my inspiration and turned into my own.  I loved the placement of the large photo so I did use that and I really like the large title on the side and  I just turned mine in a different direction than what the sketch shows.  I love this Instagram of my daughter that I took last week.  She had just had her hair curled by my friends daughter and they put a little light make-up on her and gave her a pair of their sunglasses!  She is such a tomboy but she still loves to dress up and look a little fancy from time to time!  She is growing up way to fast for this mama!  I used some Maggie Holmes that I had left over and a few bits and pieces of different things that were on my desk, stamps from Paper Wings Productions, and of coarse my favorite Thickers!  I thank you so much for stopping and I enjoy reading all of your comments!  Thanks so much for all the bloggy love!!  Have a Fancy day!!
