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!

Paper Wings Productions December Challenge


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.
Snowman Love

Sparkle

Typed Wishes
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!  To pick up a Limited Edition Clique Kits card kit head on over to the Clique Kits shop here and enter promo code CKSANTAHOLIDAY to receive 40% off!
