Clique Kits 2017 DT

Welcome to the Clique Kits Blog Hop!

Today we are doing a blog hop to introduce all the new team members! I am so excited and honored to have been asked back for a 2nd term on the team!

Before I share my page, here is a little "get to know me" questionnaire that all the team members are answering:

1. What's your favorite color?  GREEN
2. What's your favorite song right now? "My Name is Human" by the Highly Suspect

3. Who inspires you? People who stand up for themselves; strong women; people who take time to enjoy the little things; people doing good things for others. Scrappy wise, I just love to look through Pinterest and find layouts that speak to particular artist, but I do love Paige Evans and Missy Whidden!

4. Favorite Book? Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse

5. Favortie Movie? LOTR Trilogy!

6.Favorite snack? Ice Cream or anything Chocolate and Peanut Butter!

7. What is your favorite food? SUSHI!

8. Where would you like to visit someday? Hawaii or New Zealand 

9. Who got you into scrapbooking? I started scrapbooking kinda on my own at first, but then got into Close To My Heart thanks to Heather Leopard.  Then I discovered the online world of scrapbooking and I was hooked from there.

10. How many years have you been scrapbooking?  About 12, but serious (ok, obsessed) for about 8-9 years

11. Favorite Manufacturer?  I gotta say Crate Paper.  I just love everything they make!  But I love American Crafts and Pink Paislee, too!

So now that you know a little about me, let me share my page with you!

I began by pulling out a whole bunch of old Clique Kits kits from the past few months and randomly pulling papers and embellishments to match my photo.  I usually start a page with a plan (a sketch that I've made or cut file I want to use), but I went into this one with no plan at all!

I painted with some gelatos on my background to give a nice bright yellow color. I did some stitching to highlight my shapes and added some mist splatters.

I added some fussy cut paint streaks from a piece of patterned paper and some doilies that came from a pre-cut die cut sheet from Amy Tangerine.

I layered my photo with some papers and lots of chipboard shapes from Crate Paper "Gather" collection.

You can watch my whole process here, and I would love it if you would take a moment to subscribe to my YouTube channel!

Creative Scrappers and Spieglmom Scraps Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone!

Creative Scrappers is hosting a BLOG HOP today in conjunction with sketch 301 and our sponsor Spiegelmom Scraps. I hope you can take a few minutes from your busy day and join us!

Here is the awesome sketch that Kristine designed:

I used up a whole bunch of things from my stash as well as some NEW goodies from SpiegelMom Scraps for this fall page.  We take a fall trip every year to the Adirondacks and rent a cabin.  This year it was absolutely gorgeous!!!  We stayed in a cabin called "The Bear's Den".

These beautiful chipboard leaves are from Pebbles, and I stitched over them with orange thread.  The flair is from Cuts2Luv on Etsy, and of course some gorgeous sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.

Another embellie cluster with my journaling stuck on tags.  These glassine envelopes are from SMS, too!

Finally, another cluster around my title, with some cork arrows from SMS and a chipboard title from Basic Grey.

If you want to check out how I made this page from start to finish, you can see my process video here:

Clique Kits Blog Share-2016-2017 DT

Welcome to the Clique Kits Blog Share featuring the new CK design team for 2016-2017!
All the super talented ladies on the team have created some gorgeous projects with products from the Clique Kits store.  

I used some of the Posh line from Simple Stories, with a few bits of Millie & June from Fancy Pants.  This photo is of my kiddos enjoying a cool treat during our day at the NYS Fair.

 I wan going to cut this chevron paper just to ruffle the edges a bit, but I love how the pieces looked flipped over, so I went with that...

These heart clips are SUPER cute, and I added a layer of Mixed Media sheets (from my Therm O Web stash) to add a softness behind the photo.

A few puffy stickers from Fancy Pants layered with papers from Posh.

And finally, a piece of flair from my stash with some arrows that help draw your eye to the photo.

If you would like to see how I created this page from start to finish, you can see my process video here:

Here is the order of the blog share.  Please be sure to leave everyone some love!
