Clique Into Color Layout #2

This was inspired by a sketch created by Clique Kits design team member Kat Benjamin... and I really went to town with paint and watercolors. That heart print was originally black and white but I used my cheapo set of watercolors to change that, the other scraps are cut from papers in the kit as well, and the background I painted with the Jillibean Soup paint that was included with the kit.


Mine doesn't match the sketch exactly but I really LoVE how this layout came out! It's very wrinkly with all the wet media, but that's ok, it'll flatten out in my album over time, it was really hard to photograph without losing the edges... so I cropped weirdly. 

Thanks for looking!

Clique into Color Layouts

Clique Kits had a fantastic Facebook Crop where they posted challenges... they even sold out of their kit that they created just for the event. Everyone is welcome to participate and you have until August 24th to upload your layouts.

The first one I completed was mostly inspired by everyone's work, it didn't really fit any of the challenges:


I was able to snag one of the kits for the event, it featured papers from Bella Blvd and Echo Park. I added a set of Gelatos from the Clique Store to go with and some of those AWESOME Bella Blvd Bows and stickers. That heart was from one of the exclusive cards that came with the kit, it was just white and black, I Gelatoed it to look Ombre... I also colored the background with some Gelatos.  I really love how this turned out and can't wait to share my other layout... look for it on Tuesday 8/18!

Planner Process Video and Stuff

So I've really been enjoying using my current Clique Kit for my planner... who knew??? I have been really inspired watching the RESET girl videos over at the youtube land and she has helped me out with my problems stamping on my planner pages... just add pretty paper on top. Wish I could be that smart on my own. I was trying things like Gesso and then getting sad because it wasn't working out just right. I may still have to print my own pages... but this is working for me right now.

More Ambrosia Planning

SERIOUSLY loving this kit in my planner, I have the opposite page sorted and I'm going to try and film it this weekend. I finished my finals this week, so I hope to have more crafty filmy time the next few weeks!!! Wish me luck! Clique Kits is having an online crop this weekend so check out their Facebook Group and play along with the challenges!

Here is my latest page, using mostly the Ambrosia kit from Clique Kits and a few bits from my stash.

Ambrosia Planning

So I just got my Clique Kits August Kit... Ambrosia. It's finals time for me (ugh, still so many to go) and I really wanted to cut into this yummy kit! So I did some work in my planner. I'm finally FINALLY starting to get some results I'm happier with. Thanks to inspiration from the Reset Girl I have learned if I want to stamp in my planner, I just need to slap some paper down inside!


The page on the left is getting there, but the page on the right I LOVE!! I am staying somewhere that isn't my house this week, and I forgot to bring my paper trimmer, but I love how it turned out anyway!

I made a process video for the right hand page, but I got a phone call while filming and just discovered that :( so no video for the page. Sorry.



And a haul video to show off my kit!

Birthday with the Carpe Diem Kit

I still have a lot of this kit left on my desk, and I needed a "quick" birthday card. So utilized some scrap strips from my last layout, made a messy background with my favorite Mama Elephant Doily stamp on a white cardbase using Charcoal Mid-Tone Ink by Hero Arts.

I used the tiny attacher to attach my strips to one another and 3L adhesive foam to attach the strips to my card. The letter stickers are from Jillibean Soup.

I think it turned out pretty cute!

Encouragement

Sometimes you need a card to kind of substitute for a hug, and let someone know they are doing great, and you are there for them. I found the perfect supplies in my July Clique Kit:
