Clique Kits August Blog Share

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!

Clique Kits Spring Card Kit

*****Clique Kits April Blog Share CLICK HERE*****
Hello everyone!  I am so excited to be bringing you a layout using the Clique Kits Spring Card kit!  I love this kit and it is just not for card making!  

This kit features the On Trend collection from My Minds Eye designed by the very talented Jen Allyson.  I love that the 6×6 paper pad comes with gold foil papers!  The color combination in this kit is just perfect and mix in a beautiful Altenew stamp set and you are set to create!  This past January I had the privilege of attending CHA 2015.  This was an amazing experience and I tried to get as many photos as possible to document the weekend!  While in the beautiful My Minds Eye booth I had one of my Clique girls snap a photo of me in the booth!  I knew once we had this kit all planned out that this photo would be scrapped using this kit!  I printed my journaling on one of the cardstocks in the kit and kept the layout pretty simple. 
I absolutely love how it came out and I think this one will be hung in my office!  The Spring Card kit is still available in the shop!  These kits are very limited so pick yours up today!  Thanks so much for stopping today and stay tuned for more projects with this amazing kit!
