Our challenge this month was to create a project inspired by our fabulous November Mood Board!  There’s so much inspiration here, I almost didn’t know where to start…..

@cliquekits @jodyspiegelhoff @17turtles @spiegelmomscraps @gossamerblue @lemonowl, #lemonowl #diecut #lemonowl #onmydesk #onmydesk #spiegelmomscraps #17turtles #sequins #heidiswapp

…. so I started with the fabulous 17 Turtles die cuts which were specially designed for this kit!!  Juliana Michael’s is the fabulous designer behind these amazing cut files!  Check out how I used them in my layouts!  In the layout below I even used the negatives from the die cuts!!  I also added in a little Shimelle & My Minds Eye from our shop!!  The ‘smile’ and flowers are from 17 Turtles!!  So awesome!

And for #2!!  I added in the “Get Happy” Gossamer Blue December Mini Kit which is available starting today!!  So, grab them while they’re in stock.. there’s only a limited quality available!

I did some fussy cutting, as you can see, and I just loved how it turned out!! As much as I love chalkboard papers, sometimes I struggle with how to use them.  So cutting around the flowers was my solution this time.  After choosing this fun pink polka dot paper for my background, I needed to balance out that black and white flower, so that’s when I chose to add in the Gossamer Blue mini kit!!  Perfect combination!

Here is one of the first cards I created with my Clique Cards Kit!!  I just love this kit and how many embellishment options I have when creating!!  This was a very fast and easy card to create.  To start out, I cut a piece of the green Bazzil cardstock in half the long way and folded it to create my 5.5″ by 4.25″ card base.  Next I just trimmed this super cute tree paper down to 5.25 by 4″ and adhered it to the front of my card with my favorite foam adhesive from 3L Scrapbook Adhesives, found here. Then, I sprinkled a few fun sequins from the Clique Card kit into my mini glassine bag and sealed with a small strip of 3L Scrapbook Adhesives taper runner before I wrapped the mini bag with some fabulous Twinery Shimmer twine.  Then I just adhered it to the front of my card.  I chose this fun holiday tag from the assortment of Fancy Pants Designs tags from their super cute Oh Deer collection and let the string fall randomly.  To add some sparkle, I used a glue dot to adhere the 15mm snowflake sequin right on top of the Fancy Pants tag.  For a finishing touch of gold I added a Pink Fresh Studio gold puffy sticker along the bottom and TA-DA!! Done!

Clique Kits Blog Share ~ Masquerade Ball!

@cliquekits @spiegelmomscraps, #cliquekits #blogshare #masqueradeball #OctoberKit #scrapbookkit #papercraft #layout #card #diy

 

Hello everyone!  You should have arrived here from Gia’s blog where I’m sure you totally adored her project!  If you’re joining me here first, you can find the entire line-up on the Clique Kits Blog HERE!

This month’s challenge was based off of this quote 

I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers–L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Isn’t that beautiful! The challenge for this month is create a project about or tell everyone what you’re grateful to live a world where there are Octobers!  In our home, Octobers are filled with kids soccer games, Packers football games on Sundays, warm comfort foots, time with our family and lots of holiday prep!!   All of which I’m very blessed to have in my life!  

Now for today, I created two layouts for this Pep Rally with my Masquerade Ball kit and some of the add-ons from the Clique Kits store.  My extra products outside my kit include the fabulous Basic Grey Second City Feathers {designed by the one and only Kelly Purkey}, Simple Stories Frankie and Friends Enamel Dots,  Jillibean Soup Yam Yellow Beanboard and the Fair Trade Silk Strips of Recycled Sari Cloth.

Here’s my first layout!  I pulled out Hannah’s 4K picture from her first day.  It’s amazing how much she’s changed in only two days!!  One of my favorite elements is the Fair Trade Sari Cloth I used to create a circular flower embellishment to balance out the other two circles on my layout.  I did this by using a white cardstock circle as the base and stapling the Sari Cloth to the center first.  Then, I began twisting the Sari Cloth around in a loose circle, outward from the center while tacking it down with a few random staples with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.  It’s a pretty each technique to do actually.  Grab some Sari Strips and try it out!! You can also made some cute handmade flowers for headbands or barrettes using a metal or plastic base and hot glue!!

The other two circles were made with one of the Second City stickers and plain white cardstock circle topped with the fun Jillibean Yam Yellow Beanboard.  I just love this Jillibean alphas!  They totally rock and there a ton of them in one package!!

For my next layout I started with a sheet of yellow textured cardstock from American Crafts and then chose the very bold Second City paper with all those fun houses!!  I pulled a few of our Disney photos from Epcot in March and I just love these photos of our little girls playing these awesome bongos!  I used lots of the fabulous Second City stickers and those funky feathers and the Simple Stories Frankie and Friends enamel dots.  I also used the thin sticker frame and added it right onto Abby’s picture… it really POPS off the page!

These Second City feathers and just fabulous!  You can bend them up and really make them 3 dimensional.  The package contains a variety of sizes in cardstock and vellum ~ Score!!  I also added foam adhesive and popped up a few of the ephemera pieces and stickers.

In order to be daring this month I really had to push myself. This month was full of my own challenges; kids starting school, schedule changes, kids activities, working overtime, family members getting sick both at home at far away, collaborating on new things and finding making time to create. My daring (and creative) moments this month definitely came when I made time to create. Ten minutes here, fifteen minutes there, changing laundry over and then running downstairs before someone notices I’m gone for five minutes LOL. Oh yes, I did that this month!
So, to celebrate my daring creative moments I made a mini album and literally used up over scrap of my September Study Abroad Kit!! Seriously, I have nothing left and I couldn’t be happier! I’m only showing a couple pages of my mini today to keep it short and sweet. My mini is pretty simple this time around but once I add my photos and top them off with a few other little embellishments, it will be just right.

Onto my prep-work and layout for today!! (P.S. I’ll have another layout on the Clique Kits Blog this Friday with more The Cut Shoppe goodness!!)  I started with a few extra supplies, pictured below.  Then cut these fabulous cut files using my Neenah white card stock.  Next, I sprayed them with my Studio Calico Heirloom Blue Mr. Huey’s and let them air dry.  I just love this color!! While the die cuts were drying, I created a fun green watercolor by mixing the Heirloom Blue with Sunshine and about a teaspoon of water.  I played with the colors on my card stock base… just a little so the card stock didn’t get too wet.  I could have used a watercolor paper here, but just decided to use my Neenah.  I also splattered some ink right onto my background using the same colors.

Next, I built my layout on top of my watercolor background.  I added some fun clouds by stamping right onto my background with the fabulous chalkboard paint included in the Clique Kits Study Abroad kit!!  I used an Amy Tangerine stamp and masked off the sun-part of the stamp for all but one of the paint-stamped images on my layout.  Then I used the the Heirloom Blue Mr. Huey’s mixed with a little bit of water and painted inside my clouds.  I love how they really pop off my page!
