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 6x6 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!

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 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 March Blog Share

Welcome to the Clique Kits March Blog Share!  If you have arrived from the Clique Kits blog then you are in the right spot!  This month we are sharing projects created with the March 2015 Clique Kit J'adodre.
This months kit features the beautiful Love Notes collection by We R Memory Keepers designed by Amanda Rose Zampelli.  Amanda was one of our March Designers in the Spotlight and you can read her full Q&A HERE.  

This months challenge was to add a pop of neon to our projects which was pretty simple with the We R Memory Keepers Clearly Bold additions to the kit!  I created two layouts to share today using this months kit.  For my first layout I also pulled out the Kesi Art Geometric Heart Die that is available in the Clique Kits Shop and cut out  a bunch of hearts from the beautiful paper in this kit!  This die cuts so nice and is one of my new favorite dies!

I added a few embellishments to some of the hearts  and added some black ink drops around the page and that was it.  I love how it turned out and I love the look of the die cut hearts!  My next layout is documenting my best friend and I.  The photo was taken about 4 years ago on my birthday and we were out celebrating!  We have always been party girls so I wanted to document this wild night we had!  The Clique Kits exclusive flair was the perfect wild touch to the layout and the bold patterns match our style perfectly!

Not only do we have the fabulous blog share we are also revealing our April 2015 kit!  Take a look at Happy Everything!

Stop by the Clique Kits shop to see what new products have been added this month!

Thanks so much for stopping today and I hope you enjoyed my layouts.  Remember to comment along the way and on the Clique Kits blog for your chance to win!  Share our blog share on any social media for an extra chance to win.  Please let a separate comment on the Clique Kits blog for each social media share!  Your next stop on the blog is Lacey!

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 8.5x11 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!

Clique Kits December Blog Share

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!  Make sure to comment along the way and let us know on the Clique Kits blog that you finished the hop for your chance to win the December kit!  Share our blog hop on your Facebook or any other social media and get an extra chance to win!  Just leave an additional comment on the Clique Kits blog!

Today I have a holiday card to share with you that I created using the Sacred Geometry2 and Holiday Clear stamp sets from the Paper Wings Productions shop.  I stamped one of the images from the Sacred Geometry2  stamp set with some VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I cut it down to a strip and adhered to the edge of my card.  I stamped the sentiment in some red ink and then added some die cut gold snowflakes.  
The Paper Wings Productions shop has a great selection of holiday stamps and the script words are some of my favorites!  They stamp out beautifully and can be used in so many ways!  I want to thank you all so much for joining us today for our December blog hop and giveaway!  We hope you have enjoyed all our projects along the way.  Make sure to head back to the Paper Wings blog and let us know you have completed the hop for your chance to win a gift certificate to the shop!
