Now, on with the show.  Here’s my first project using Simple Stories Daily Grind.  I LOVE making mini albums and this one was super fun to create!  It’s for a friend of mine who just had a baby boy.  The front and back covers  were made using recycled legal pads as my chipboard bases and measure 5″x7″.  I covered each side with some Daily Grind and another wood grain paper from my stash.  You’ll see that added a doily and a few other layers to add some interest to my cover.  I trimmed the doily in half and added on either side of the March journaling card.  I also added a small glassine bag with a shipping tag inserted inside and tied with some navy May Arts burlap string.  I love the little touch of texture the burlap string adds!  Next, check out the felt cloud and other goodies by Studio Calico, wood veneers & flair.

And here’s the inside.  I found the white corrugated 6×6″ pieces at Hobby Lobby and loved them!  Don’t the make awesome mini album pages :)  Of course I added lots of Daily Grind, Studio Calico wood veneers and some sweet Pink Fresh Studio Enamel Drops.  The white squares are where the 4×4″ photos will go when I gift this little mini next week :) 

Did you wonder about the wood veneer card?  Well, that’s also from Studio Calico and so cute!  I lined up the holes I punched for the other pages on punched right through the wood veneer card, just like butter with my WRMK Crop-a-dile tool.  (I love that thing!)  Next, I added the stamped images (from CTMH) with some Memento fade resistant dye inks in brown and black.  Yes, you can actually stamp right onto wood veneers and it looks awesome!  I also colored the wood veneer camera with a Copic marker, but you could use any type of marker for that task.  In the forth picture down, you’ll see the backside of the wood veneer card stamped with various colors.  The green is from CTMH and others are Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade.

 Lot’s more layering here, with a Heidi Swapp flag (Champion), new washi tapes, glassine bag and shipping tags.  The great thing about mini albums is you’ll have a dedicated space for your photos, and you can surround them with little embellishments and stickers.  You can also layer underneath your photos and papers by adding pull out tags for some fun hidden journaling!

Are you a ‘stash’ lover… mustache I mean!  You can join me this Friday on the Clique Kits blog for a fun tutorial on how I created the fun felt mustaches and arrows using my Cricut!!  Here’s a closer look at one them, along with the embossed cameras on my blue Daily Grind banners.  The Amy Tangerine camera embossing folder will be coming to the Clique Kits Store soon, so check back often!!

And here’s the back of my mini!  This Daily Grind card was the perfect ending to this mini album’s back cover, especially since it’s for a baby :)

Clique Kits April 14 018

Ok, one more quick project today!  I used the Summer Simple Set to create this fun layout from our vacation at the beginning of March.  This is a great example on how you can add multiple photos to one 12×12″ layout!  I kept the one in the middle with Brad and our girls at 4×6″, then trimmed the square photos down to 3×3″.  The silly photo of Sari on top is about 5×3″.  The water in the background made is pretty easy of overlap the photos to create this fun collage.  This is another easy  way to solve the ‘too much water in the photo’ problem I always have with pictures of my family in the pool or water in general.

I used lots of foam adhesive for the clouds, which I punched from the Simple Set’s product cover sheet in the packaging.  I added some Basic Grey blue gems and some random yellow enamel dots from my stash.

Here’s closer look at my stitched sun!  I used a bottle of Gesso as my circle template and punched some holes to create my sun!  It took me about 5 minutes to stitch the sun total.

Hazel & Ruby Blog Share!

hazel and ruby blog share

Hey, I’m so happy you made it!  Yay for another Clique Kits blog share!! Weren’t Gia’s projects so inspiring and FAB.  I know, right!  So, if you didn’t make here from Gia’s Blog, no worries.  You can always start from the beginning at our CLIQUE KITS BLOG and hop along on our creative journey today.

This month, we created with Hazel & Ruby’s papers and some goodies Gia sent us CK Girls.  I loved the girly papers overall, but when I pulled out photos to work with I just wasn’t feelin’ it.. ya know, that creative mojo we have inside of us.  So, after walking away {and seriously vacuuming our basement where my scrap shop is} I went back and with a fresh view and starting cutting.  Yes, I starting cutting the papers!  Sometimes, even when I totally love a piece of paper I just can’t find the ‘perfect’ use for it.  And then it sits in my stash, and sits some more.. and well, you know what happens.  You don’t use it!  BLA!!  That’s a paper crime in my book scrappers, so let’s stop it right now.   Just cut it.  That’s how this layout evolved into being the newest member of my 2013 family scrapbook.

The base is a piece of cardstock from my stash, which was perfect with the bits of yellow in the patterns.  I loved the bold zig zags, but loved it more when I fussy cut the zig zags piece along the left side.  After I did that, the rest of the layout fell into place pretty quickly. I also added some texture & interest to my cloud shapes using an embossing folder, to be named soon! (click on each picture in the gallery below the full layout to make them bigger)

Next up, bubbles??  When I looked at this paper with all the small dots in neat rows, all I could think about was bubbles and pictures of our girls in the tub.  So, that’s what a dug out.  Abby is 2 years old now, but these pictures have been printed since she was about 10 months old :)  I can’t be the only one who does this??  Please tell me I’m not…

Again, I used a cardstock base (off-white) then I trimmed that dots paper down to 11×11″ and rounded the corners to keep things…well, round.  Since I already trimmed the pink paper with all the fun arrows down I used that for the next piece of my background.  That’s the beauty of working with a collection all together, everything coordinates.  My long vertical banner is the opposite side of the trimmed 1×12″ dots paper.  One of the Hazel & Ruby pattern paper sheets is full of fun 3×4″ journaling cards. These are super fun to layer and make easy titles for your layouts too.

My favorite page element is the big sequin shaker that sticks out from the bottom of my photos.  I used a 5×7″ glassine bag and dumped in a couple spoonful’s of sequins, a few Studio Calico Wood Veneers and a couple random buttons. I sealed up the folded flap with two sided tape and staples.  Nothing is sneaking out of that sucker lol!  I also used two sided tape to adhere my sequin shaker to my layout and staples along the top since it was a little heavy.

If you know me at all, you know that I adore the negative.  Negative shapes that it!  At the top right you’ll see the wood veneer notecard with clouds layered on top.  Then just below that is the negative of the larger cloud.  I added a few Hazel & Ruby word stickers in the middle, which ended up right on the glassine bag.  Then I added a couple sequins and a Studio Calico wood veneer star using Aileen’s Tacky Glue.

Clique Kits March 014

Here’s a few quick close ups for you.  Check out the sequin shaker and some of the simple layering around my baby girl lovin’ her bath in the kitchen sink.  Don’t all those sequins and buttons floating around in there remind you of bubbles too?!

And for my final layout today, Abby is showing off her attitude! This layout had to be more bold to reflect her personality.  I used a full sheet of Hazel & Ruby for the background, then built it around my sassy little Abby’s photos.  I didn’t add a whole lot of embellishments to this layout.  One I HAD to use was the Freckled Fawn Camera paper clip.  Even though I love the look of the fun shaped paper clips hanging off of paper layering, I wanted the whole camera to be seen.   My solution:  I used a solid green piece from one of the papers and cut a small slit just off center.  Pretty easy!

PinkFresh Studios Blog Share

pinkfresh blog header

Finally!!  This is such an exciting blog share for us Clique Kits gals. As I’m sure you read in yesterday’s CK Designer Spotlight, Kinnari Zaveri, is the owner of PinkFresh Studio and an innovative female business owner.  As soon as we found her, we knew she was a perfect fit in our Clique and our monthly kits.  

Blog share deets: You should have arrived from Lacey’s blog and super cute project, but if not no worries!  You can always start at the beginning at the Clique Kits website and hop your way through.

I’ve been having a blast playing with some fabulous PinkFresh  enamel InstaFrames and Way To Home enamel stickers.  Seeing them on the PinkFresh Studios website doesn’t do them any justice. Here’s a look at what I had to play with.  And yes, there are some goodies missing :)

jody 044

I’ve been keeping up a steady pace in using my stash of papers which is a huge accomplishment for me!  I do love all my new stuff after all :)   I used lots of Dear Lizzy papers in this layout and embellished with some fun cork & corrugated cardboard embellishments that Gia sent me.

jody 047

Who says umbrellas are just for rainy layouts??  Not this girl.  I love trying to find other ways to use embellishments.  For example, the raindrops can easily be turned into some cute flower petals :) (coming in a Locker Room post this Friday) Check out all the fun PinkFresh embellishments & washi tape sprinkled around my layout.

jody 049 jody 052 jody 053

Don’t you just love these enamel arrows and color block wood veneers?  They both add such a super touch of cuteness!  Not to mention these Instaframes…. I must have more colors of them for sure!!  They were the perfect solution to my picture issue, I had too many for one layout and I didn’t want to spread this over two pages.  I was able to trim down my photos without feeling like something was missing or I was taking something away from the photo. The frames allowed me to add focus and some awesome pops of color right where I needed it.  To add just a little more cuteness, I embellished the Instaframes a little too:)

jody 050 jody 051

Well, I’m thinking that you’re lovin’ the PinkFresh embellishments just as much as we do! PinkFresh Studio has put together a FABULOUS prize package for ONE lucky commenter! Comment on each blog during the share, the more you comment on the better your odds!  Oh AND Kinnari is giving a 20% off store coupon code to all our followers!  How sweet is that!!  Just use code CLIQUE20 at your check out.

I have “A Charmed Life” by Simple Stories

Happy Monday… well it is for this Mama!  My life is truly ‘charmed.’  My vacation is officially started and I’ve been busy packing for our Florida/Disney vacation.  Today, I took some extra time for me so I’m sharing two things with you.  First up, a Clique Kits Locker Room post from last Friday. You can go <HERE> to check it out!  You’ll see how I use 6×6 paper to create a 12×12 layout + there’s a short video too :)

I also have another simple, but ’charmed’ layout for you today.  I used the new Simple Stories A Charmed Life.  This line is fabulous for both girls and boys alike.  I know you see some floral.. but the other side is neutral.  Floral|Polka dots, Floral|Ledger and Floral|Solid.  Simple Stories aims to please :)

So for my layout, I chose a photo from when our 7 year old, Sari, was only 6 months old.  Ah,  how time flies!  I used the monochromatic diagonal stripe background and then trimmed three of the journaling cards away from the 12×12 sheet, keeping the three connected.  Next, I trimmed down the yellow polka dot to 6×8″ and the Ledge paper to 6×6″ and placed them as shown below.

jody 031

I adhered that journaling card strip towards the right side of my layout and tucked a couple doily pieces around my papers.  Next I used the scraps left over from my other layout to create some banner shapes.  I popped up those banners with some foam adhesive by 3L Scrapbook Adhesives.  If you’re looking for a fantastic foam adhesive, look no further that this!  I have them in my Etsy shop for under retail, because that’s how much I love them!  I added a simple title with Studio Calico Wood veneer alphas and a couple mini shipping tags for fun.  This it, short, simple and still so sweet!

I’m happy you stopped by today!  Thank for you spending your time with me today.  Now, mark you calendar & set your alarm for this Wednesday.  Check this out!

 See you Wednesday everyone!!

Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste Blog Share!!

Amy Tan Blog share

I have to tell you that I couldn’t be more excited for this Clique Kits blog share today.  We had a blast working with Cut & Paste by Amy Tangerine which was released last summer.  You should have arrived here from Gia Lau, The Painted Crane.  Didn’t she just blow you away!!  If you’re stopping by my blog first today, be sure to visit our Clique Kits blog for details on the awesome PRIZE PACK we have for you and the complete blog share line up today.

Here are my layouts!  Many of you already know me & my girls… lots of pinks and girly fru-fru here!  Amy Tangerine’s Cut & Paste line really made me appreciate the neutral color palette much more, while still scrapbooking about our girls.  I know lots of families who have a mixture of boy and girls or all boys.  I often hear “I love your layouts, but they’re all girly.”  I know, I know….. This was a challenge for me scrappers, but today I think you’ll be amazed at how versatile Cut & Paste really is, along with Amy Tangerine’s other lines too.

One thing you’ll see on this layout is lots of layers using all the different Amy Tangerine papers.  I trimmed a few of them down to about 6×8″ and smaller to create my layers.  Right above my photo of our youngest daughter Abigail, you’ll see an embossed piece of pink card stock.  I wanted to pull just a little bit more pink into the layout so I grabbed a piece of scrap card stock, embossed it with dots and tucked it under my photo.  It’s a great way to use your tools while you’re scrapbooking.  Erica has already done a fabulous job on this in her Geek Lab posts on the Clique Kits Blog!!  Be sure to follow Clique Kits so you don’t miss any of our posts!!

You could totally put a photo of a boy right into this layout with a couple very minor adjustments, such as replacing the pinks with yellow or other neutral color.    Let’s move on to my tag, shall we.  I created my ombre painted tag using these simple shipping tags, white acrylic paint and some spray inks.  For the full tutorial on how I created my ombre tag you can check out my YouTube video HERE.

After I created several of these tags for my video, I still had some left over.  This one was a perfect fit for this layout!  Along with our papers & embellishments for this blog share, Erica also sent us the Amy Tangerine stitching stencil kit!!! EEEK!  So awesome!  Now for this tag, I didn’t use the actual stencil letters, but I did use the cute little paper piercer & foam mat to punch holes in the word HAPPY.  This was very quick and easy to do.  Just for reference, I used about 3 yards of embroidery floss to stitch the word HAPPY.

Feb 2014 233 Feb 2014 209

The next thing I did was add some gold heat embossing to my layout.  I really loved the tiny epoxy stars that Erica sent us and wanted to play them up more.  I dug out (literally out of an unpacked box from moving 18 months ago) my gold embossing powers and went to town.  I added some stars and a little banner using a Dear Lizzy banner stamp.

Feb 2014 206 Feb 2014 207

My next next layout was super fun to create.  I loved this large multi-colored diagonal stripe paper.   This colorful background reminded me of large arrows so I played that up by having the big arrows point to my photos.  

I added spray inks and some cool rub-ons to point towards my photo even more.  I continued to use the arrows and lines in this awesome paper to my advantage.  Can you see how all the lines are pointing and leading your detail-lovin’ eyes into my layout!?     

Feb 2014 169

Below, you get a good look at the stitching in part of my title “SCORE”.  It was very easy to line up the stitching template and quickly punch the little holes.  I used about 1 yard of embroidery floss when stitching my letters.  Also, look just above the die cut “YEAH YEAH YEAH.”  Those arrows were from a fun rub-on that Erica also sent us.

Feb 2014 171

Feb 2014 172

And finally, my pocket page!!  I’ll keep this short and sweet for ya.  I want you to really look at the sides of some of the photos and journaling cards.  You’ll see some little colorful tabs sticking out, which are stickers.  Those little tabs are a little secret of mine and I’m happy to share with you today!  I often time, take a lot of pictures at our girls events… and I mean A LOT!!  I wanted a way to include more of my photos without really doing more layouts since they photos are all of the same event basically.  So, I used various stickers to create little pull tabs on photos that I slipped behind the main photos in my pocket page layout.  Check out how many more pictures are actually in this layout!!

Clique Kits Wildflowers Blog Share

blog share

Welcome to today’s Clique Kits blog share featuring Kaitlin Sheaffer with her fun & fresh Wildflowers paper line with Carta Bella! Clique Kit’s mission is to spotlight the designer behind each paper line, their creative process, what’s on their desk and even what inspired them to design that particular paper line. You can find her Q&A on the Clique Kits blog here, which is the beginning of this wild blog share today. That being said, you may have found your way here from Gia’s blog, The Painted Crane.  If you didn’t, you can check out our Clique Kits Blog HERE  for the line up today & get some awesome FREE printables!!!  Here is our quote this month which led to our challenge to use something “wild”. 

“May your life be like a wildflower…Growing freely in the beauty and joy of each day.”   ~Native American Proverb


The first layout is about us having some backyard adventures in fall of 2012. I was so lucky to snap a couple pics with my phone before Sari and Hannah took off for the little wooden area behind our house to play. First, we stood there all lined up and ready to run, but something caught my attention on the ground. Our shadows! I begged the girls to stay still for 10 seconds and they did, thankfully for me! I snapped that pic just before they took off running while holding hands… just melts my heart. Another fab photo moment caught by a cell phone camera!!

Jan 14 038

My kit contained a cool 12×12” navy blue corrugated cardstock from Fancy Pants Designs.  My wheels were spinning for a while on this one.  The corrugated navy blue felt like a boy page, but we don’t have boys… then it felt like outdoors so I ran with that.  I went with a messy collage type layout with lots of different layers and textures to kind of ‘match’ the outdoors.  I started by painting the corrugated background with silver acrylic paint.  Next I started picking out my embellishment, stickers and of course the awesome exclusive, designer flair designed by Clique Kit graphic designer Lacey Gasper!!!   I also used some mini glassine bags which were actually packaging for some of my embellishments.  Can you spot them??  

So, my advice to you when you get a piece of paper, cardstock or other funky element in a kit that you haven’t used before ask yourself “what does this feel like or remind me of?”  It’s a great way to get your creative juices flowing.

Jan 14 039 Jan 14 040 Jan 14 041

Ok, next up is a must have selfie layout of Sari, Hannah and I just before dropping them off at school a few weeks ago.  It’s been bitter cold here in Wisconsin, hovering around ZERO far too often!  Since our girls are dressed head to toe in their Hello Kitty winter coats, hats, mittens and snow pants I reached for this pink patterned paper with the white ink splash on it.  Pre-misted perfection!  I’m also addicted, slightly, to gold accents.  I used a 6” Gold Foil doily from my Etsy Shop {SpiegelMom’s Scrap Shop} and several of the 6×6” papers to create the photo mat for our selfie picture.  I also had some soft wispy pink feathers, a blue cats eye ink pad and some small die cuts in my kit.  As I was planning my next move, I looked down and saw the ink pad sitting on a journaling card and the blue die cut camera.  Light bulb moment!  I didn’t want to mess up the the front of the camera but loved that the lens was a heart shape.  I used the backside of the camera die cut as an inking mask to add some bright blue hearts floating up the left side of my layout.  I just placed the die cut camera onto the paper, held it in place with my fingers (you could also use washi tape to hold the die cut) and ‘stamped’ the ink pad straight down into the heart cut out.  Look through some of your die cuts and see what shapes you can find inside the actual die cut.  I bet you come up with some cool inking masks!!  I also added some bright fuchsia sequins from my Etsy shop for some added flair.Jan 14 043 Jan 14 044 Jan 14 045 Jan 14 046 Jan 14 048

As for that journaling card, I cut out the feather and added it to the feather stickers in my Wildflowers kit. I also die cut a few more feathers in the bright orchid cardstock (the color of the year also!)  See the looped pink string along the bottom?  To keep that in place, just use some tacky glue (or other clear-drying glue) to tack it down. 

My last layouts are going in my new pocket page style album.  This is my main plan for 2014!  It’s also a great way to involve your kids in the process.  They are ‘family’ albums after all.  I have a couple Project Life kits but I know I’ll be creating my own pocket-style cards too!  You can either leave the edges square like I did, or round the corners for a different look.

Jan 14 050

On this layout,  I was stuck on what to put in two of the pockets, one 3×4” and 4×6”.  Nothing seemed to fit.  So, I created fun little floating embellishment pockets!  I love how they turned out.  I just dumped in some 6mm Silverado Sequins from my Etsy Shop, die cuts, the sparkly heart on a stick and then sewed it shut.  I used my gold thread and a #2 stitch lenth.  I literally just ran it through like your would fabric!  It’s so easy!  I forgot to mention that I added a Glue Dot to each side of the sparkly heart stick because I wanted it to stay upright and not do flips inside the little pocket.  I think it worked out pretty good overall.  OH and how about that fun feather!!  Why not try adding some non-scrapbooking type materials into your pocket.  The possibilities are endless.. ok except for perishable foods and such LOL!

Jan 14 052 Jan 14 053 Jan 14 051

Jan 14 064 Jan 14 065 Jan 14 066 Jan 14 061 Jan 14 067 Jan 14 068

In the photo above, I didn’t want to leave the heart ‘empty’ so I glued the chevron die cut onto the outside of the plastic page protector.  Who says you can’t scrap on the out of those too, right?!

Jan 14 059 Jan 14 061 Jan 14 063
