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

Hey everyone! So glad you could join us for the Clique Kits August Blog Share! This month we featured the fabulous and fruity Citrus Bliss collection from Pink Paislee! Now who does not love pineapples right!? Rebecca Cross sure hit this collection out of the park because it is so on trend! Speaking of Rebecca Cross….if you have not yet read the Designer in the Spotlight post featuring Rebecca please head on over and check it out after the hop HERE!
You should have arrived from GIA’S blog but if you did not you can start the blog share from the beginning by CLICKING HERE! Now this month’s kit was so much to fun to create with! It was however hard for me to cut into this beautiful paper at first! That first cut is always the hardest for me! But once the hard part was over my layouts all fell together nicely! That is one of the best things about these kits! Everything coordinates so beautifully it makes creating so easy! This month we also had so many amazing add ons! For my layout I wanted to highlight some of the August Add ons still available in the shop so lets have a look at my layout shall we!! The photo I am documenting is of my birthday dinner and of coarse for desert I had to have my favorite…Pineapple Upside Down cake!! I was thrilled to see this on the dessert menu for a change and I could have ordered two pieces!
To create my layout I started with the awesome Pink Paislee pineapple embossing folder
! I am so in LOVE with this embossing folder
! Adding texture is so easy with this great folder! I embossed 6 white pieces of cardstock for my layout and then adhered them to my paper. I added some stitching for some added interest to my page and then adhered the piece to a 12×12 pattern paper from the kit! Of coarse I did cut out the center of this paper to use on other layouts! Simple little trick to help stretch out that paper!
I also added some fun mist and watercolors to my paper! The Clique kits store
has a variety of paints and mists to add pops of color to your projects! And if acrylic paint
is all you have then add a small dab of paint and mix with lots of water and spatter on with a paint brush or use the packaging technique! Super fun to help add that messing watercolor look to your page! I also added some fun ephemera pieces
around my photo that came in the kit! You can never have enough ephemera!
For my title I did not use the alphas in the kit I pulled out my June kit alphas from My Minds Eye! I love these alphas and I like that these alphas matched my gold thread just a little bit better than the August kit alphas! If you did not get our June kit you can pick these fabulous alphas up in the shop HERE!
And no layout is complete without some fabulous and fresh flair and a little stamping! This flair was designed by Clique Kits very own Lacey Gasper! We have limited quantities of the Clique Kits Summer Flair
so grab some today before they are gone! These have been so popular we actually made another batch because of all the request from our customers! Love Love Love them! I also added in some stamping using the new Dear Lizzy roller date stamp
! The XOXO was a cute little touch to the layout in some aqua ink! The CK shop now has some of the new Documentary collection from Dear Lizzy in the shop
! I hope you enjoyed my layout today! Make sure to check out the Clique Kits store for new products! Our September kit Capture also goes live today and and there is a ton of new product you do not want to miss! Your next stop on the hop is Sophie
! Enjoy your day!

Hello!! Wow it has been a long time since I have posted to my blog! I really miss it! My life has been crazy busy over the last few months. I wanted to pop in quick and share a layout I created with the August 2014 Clique Kit! This kit features the Citrus Bliss collection from Pink Paislee and is filled with yummy embellishments! I also picked up a few extra add ons from the Clique Kits shop!
My layout came together pretty quickly after making the dreadful first cut! I always have the hardest time cutting into the beautiful paper! After trying to decide what papers I wanted to use I just decided to cut most of them into layering pieces and leaving a few of them whole. This made it very easy to just start layering behind my photo! I also applied some ink and mist to my white background using the packaging technique. I love how this all came together and it is one of my favorites! The photo was from a few weeks ago when I attended the CHA Paper Arts + show in Schaumburg IL. I met up with one of my friends and enjoyed this fabulous drink served in a pineapple! I knew this photo would be perfect with this kit! Here is a look at my completed layout!
Now I hope you all agree with me on how fabulous that drink looks! The presentation of it was fabulous! I hope you enjoyed my layout today and I hope to be posting to my blog more often! School will be starting soon so I will have some free time during the nap time hours of my youngest to get some crafting done! I hope you all enjoy your day!
Welcome to Clique Kits May blog share! You should have arrived from the Clique Kits
blog but if you were just stopping for a visit please click HERE
to start the hop from the beginning! Our May kit Carnival featured the Rise & Shine collection from the one and only Amy Tangerine.
I was able to meet Amy Tangerine at the winter CHA show and of coarse I had to get a photo with her and Jack! Today I am sharing the layout I created using the May kit and this very special photo!
I decided on a 8.5×11 layout since I was using only one Instax photo. I am really loving this size of layouts! I kept it very simple and clean and I do love how it turned out! This one will be hung up in my craft space for sure! Amy is one of my all time favorite designers and I fall in love with everything she comes out with! Meeting her this year was a highlight for me for sure!
Thanks so much for stopping today and I hope you enjoyed my layout using the May 2015 kit! Your next stop is Lacey! Please remember to comment along the way for your chance to win your own Carnival kit! Share on Facebook for a extra chance to win!

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 email@example.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!
Welcome to the Clique Kits December Blog Share. You should have arrived from Jody’s blog but if you were just stopping for a visit you can start from the beginning HERE. This month our kit features the beautiful collection from Heidi Swapp September Skies!
I am in love with this kit and the Heidi Swapp
collection because it can be used for both feminine and masculine projects. With 4 boys and 1 girl I need a good mixture of both papers! Heidi included some great pieces in this collection that are perfect for both! I love that this kit included a stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop
and the sequin stamps are fabulous!! Here is a look at the layout I created using the December 2014 Enchanted Meadow kit
I used the current sketch from Creative Scrappers
as inspiration to get my layout going. I love all their sketches and vising their site is so inspiring!
The photo I used for this layout is of myself and my oldest son. It was his Sophomore year Homecoming dance and I was beyond thrilled to see him all dressed up with a smile on his face! We may not always agree on everything but this boy of mine has changed my life in more ways than he will ever know. For this layout I did add some pink and floral along with a good punch of navy. I love how it turned out and even he loved it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Your next stop along the way is Lacey

I am back with another challenge from Paper Wings Productions! This will be the very last challenge over at Paper Wings Productions so I hope you all join in this month! We are looking to shake things up in the new year so stay tuned! This months challenge is to create any holiday project or to use red and green in your project! I created a holiday card using a few stamp sets from the Paper Wings Productions shop.
I started with a white wood grain cardstock as my card base. I took at piece of red cardstock that came in my Limited Edition Clique Kits Holiday Card kit and cut it down to 4 x 5.25 and then used VersaMark ink to stamp one of the star burst images from the Sparkle stamp set all over the red cardstock. I die cut a banner shape and then stamped one of the adorable snowmen from the Snowman Love stamp set. The scarf and bow are also included in this stamp set and I think they are the perfect finishing touches on my snowman! Here is a look at my finished card.
Thank you so much for stopping today! I hope you will join us this month and link up your holiday projects for a chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate to the Paper Wings Productions shop!
