Carpe Diem Blog Share with Clique Kits!

Good Morning my lovelies! I'm so excited that it's time for this month's blog share with Clique Kits! I always look forward to them because we have a lot of really talented crafters in our little Clique and it's always full of inspiration!! If you just happened here and you're not on the hop, you can check it all out starting at the Clique Kits blog, and make sure you leave some love along the way because they're giving away a July Kit to one lucky commenter!!
This month's challenge was an easy one: Anything Goes! 

I managed to get 5 layouts done with this kit and I could probably squeeze in another couple more if I had more time! I have had a lot of fun with July's kit and as I was uploading my pics into Blogger, I realized that 4 out of 5 of my layouts are of my youngest son Linden! I think the colours of this kit are really great for baby layouts. Must be why I've done 4 of them with this kit! LOL!

I had a lot of fun playing with Mixed Media this month too! I'm just in a mood to get really messy lately, which is perfect because we have our Clique into Color kit that I'm playing with next! Stay tuned to see what kind of a mess I can get into with that kit! lol We're also hosting an online crop on August 7th-9th featuring our color kit, so I really hope you can join us for that! We're going to have lots of fun challenges to play along with!

I really did have a great time playing with this month's kit! I can't wait to see what everyone else made! I'm off to hop! Your next stop is the amazing Sandy G! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Everyday Happiness (a Clique Kits Tutorial)

Good Afternoon my Crafty Peeps! Is it hot enough out there for you?! I swear I feel like I might be melting!! Well, maybe I can sweat some weight off or something! HA! 

Anyway I just wanted to pop in here and share another layout I made using the July Clique Kits kit, Carpe Diem! I have been absolutely loving this kit filled with Chickenidy goodness! 

I have a bit of a tutorial up on the Clique Kits blog showing you how I made this title using one of their exclusive kit cut files, so head on over there and check it out! You'll find all the close ups of this layout there too ;)

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for taking the time to comment! I really do appreciate every single one of them!!

New Clique Kits Challenge!!

Good Morning Bloggers!! 

Did you know that every month Clique Kits has an Anything Goes challenge that you can enter up to 3 times with a chance to win an awesome prize from various sponsors?! It's pretty sweet! You don't have to use a Clique Kits kit, but we love it when you do! This month Pink Fresh Studios is sponsoring!! They're giving away a June Embellishment kit! I LOVE those kits!

This is the layout I created for the challenge. There is an optional sketch this month too, but I had already made this layout before we saw the sketch, but, like I said, it's optional! 

I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe for this layout. I really love the hearts all in a circle, and I wanted to do a little bit to the background, so I used 4 different coloured gelatos to outline the hearts on the cardstock and just smudge them in. I really love how it turned out!

We got these really cute acetate cards with gold shapes on them in our kit this month. I cut out the gold arrow and added the word love to start my title. Now that I'm looking at it again, I think I'm going to go back and use a black marker to outline the word Crazy just to make it stand out more. lol

I stitched this project life card onto another one of the gold and acetate squares. I love the way it turned out. 

I also stitched around the layout for some added texture and did my journaling around the stitching too.

I hope you pop over to the Clique Kits blog and play along with the challenge!! 

Thanks for stopping by!
