Clique Cards Spring Edition: All Occasions Cards

Hello there everyone! Today I am sharing some cards I made with the awesome Clique Cards Spring Edition. I love the refreshing color palette of this kit and the tons of stuff packed into it. So here are some cards I have created, which I kept flexible, so I can use them for different occasions.

Here’s the first, “Everything is Awesome”.

When I found out that a good friend was expecting her second child (one she has been waiting for), I was so thrilled and decided that a card was in order, especially one using that gorgeous piece of patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye with all those gold crosses! So loads of confetti, sequins and a gold banner to celebrate the occasion. Love the stamps in the set from Altenew. So much potential! I stamped the word “celebrate” using different tones of inks to create and ombre effect, before outlining the word in gold. While I made it to celebrate a pregnancy, I think it will work well for a birthday or happy event too (just tweak the number accordingly!).

For the next card, I kept it simple. I cut strips of paper and created a 3D bloom before adhering the circular die cut “love” in the middle. I also layered vellum on top of my cardstock to soften the colors.

Finally, to toss things up a little, I made a gift tag. See that rosette? I used the glassine bag found in the packaging to create it. Nothing like upcycling! I think those puffy gold crown and moustache stickers are reminiscent of photo booths that are so popular at parties these days. So on they went, for a touch of fun.

Clique Kits April Pep Rally

PictureSalutations everyone! Thanks for coming by from Carolina’s blog! So excited to be part of Clique Kits’ Pep Rally this month.

Given that Clique Kits is celebrating it’s 1 year Anniversary and the challenge is to scrap about a celebration of any kind, I thought it would be perfect to celebrate my family’s favourite roadtrip when we were living in Australia. We drove from Canberra, all the way to Brisbane, over a period of 3 days and it was super, super fun! WE enjoyed the whole journey with our 2 year old daughter then and was thrilled how from the really cold temperatures of Canberra, we moved slowly to a much more tolerable one in Brisbane.

This picture was taken as one of our rest stops and given that it was winter, the beach was less crowded – the way we like it.

 I found the really cute pineapples to be the perfect accent here, since the Big Pineapple is one of those state icons of Brisbane. See those clouds? I printed this month’s cutfile and decided to use it as a print out to complement the vellum cloud I had there as well.

Love how this month’s kit lends itself so well to all kinds of themes and I hope you are having loads of fun with the kit too. Thanks once again for stopping by. Do head on over to Sandy’s blog next! She is always full of inspiration!
Don’t forget to take part in this month’s challenge too. The prize pack is super attractive!

Clique Kits: Highlight What You Write

Love pocket style pages? I do! I like that it allows me to include numerous photos and gives me the space to journal as much or as little as I wish. For my Clique Kits blog post today, I share the following pages, where I decided to highlight my journaling by literally highlighting them.

On these pages, I recorded our Christmas spent in Sydney with my sister. The colors in Happy Everything are really cheerful and I like how they make my photos so much happier. To further lift the colors and my journaling, I used a yellow marker to color all the words on these pages that I wanted to standout. This definitely added an additional pop of color to these pages. Give it a try!

I enjoyed including the printables from this month on these pages. They make these pages come together real quick! Those circle spots are really all you need to add interest to a photo and I loved how I could caption my pics with those horizontal tags.

Timeless Twine: Macramé Pot Hanger

Hello there on this lovely Thursday! I am on Timeless Twine’s blog today where I share a 3D project. I love how versatile twine is and it lends so well to creating this macramé plant hanger:

I used watermelon sorbet and razzleberry sorbet twine for this project. I searched online for instructions on how to tie those knots (there are so many out there!) and love how these tiny paper cups by Bella Creationz are the perfect size to create a pot for this project.

For the flower pot itself, I wrapped the side with a piece of patterned paper before filling it with loads of gorgeous paper blooms from my stash.

Because I wanted a fuller tassel at the bottom, I created one separately and attached that to the bottom of the pot and my mini macramé pot hanger is completed. I think this makes a lovely gift or just a little something to add some color to a corner.

I hope you are inspired to do a little knot tying today! The products I used are linked below:

Clique Kits: Journaling in the Title

Salutations everyone! Being a stay at home mummy, I often marvel at how much energy little kids have and their amazing imagination to make the ordinary fun. My two little darlings often get into all types on antics together – including making it tough for this mummy to get a good shot of both of them together. So I celebrate when I actually succeed in taking a picture that I like and scrap it! Here’s “Fun, Fun, Fun”, which I created using Clique Kits’ April Kit, “Happy Everything”.

Fun Fun Fun, @colortypes sophie @cliquekits, #cliquekits #scrapbooking#DIY #ckhappyeverything

I thought it would be interesting to journal in the white spaces of the letter ‘F’, ‘U’ and ‘N’ on this page. By so doing, I could continue to embellish the rest of the page as much as I would like, without there being too much text. Also, all the writing in the title itself added texture to the letter.

Also, don’t forget to join in the April Challenge on Clique Kit’s blog. Loads of attractive prizes to be won! Here was my take for this challenge:
