Clique Kits Pep Rally

Hello all and welcome!!  You should have arrived from the lovely Lacey's blog.  What a crazy busy this month has been.  I have to admit, I hate that crazy holiday scramble.  One year, I swear, I'm going to have everything done so I don't feel like a chicken running around with it's head cut off.  Moving on, let me just say I LOVE this kit.  It's one of my all time favorites.  For this month, I did do a two page layout.  It's been so long since I've done one.  I also have a cut file for you to download.  The cut file is only for the Silhouette Studio.  I'm sorry.  I will share the link with you so you can download it.  So without further ado, here you go.

I used the December Mini Kit to create this layout.  I mulled over the metallic world paper for a few days and decided it should have something to do with our family.  I knew I wanted to make the photos polaroid looking.  I made them 3x3 and 2x2 and printed them with a border.  I left about 3/4 inch on the bottom to mimic a polaroid photo.  I also made some photo strips which I printed on my Selphy as well.  I made the large cut file in the Silhouette Studio.  You can download it here.  Here are some closeups for this layout.

I hope I inspired you to take the leap....create a two page layout just for old time's sake. :)  I plan on using the rest of my December Full Kit and Mini Kit on my Project Life Album.  I'm way, way only slightly behind.  The acetate cards are perfect for Project Life.  Anyhow, its time for you to go and see what Alisha has come up with for you today.

Here is the blog list incase you get lost along the way.

Around Here

It's been quite a while since I posted an "Around Here" post.  We've been super busy.  I got swamped with yearbook photos and the holidays.  The thing about taking everyone else's photos is that I don't want to take any of my own.  So, I will be posting mostly cell phone photos...though I did take a few that I liked.

Project Life Week 30

Good morning!  I wanted to share with you my Project Life Week 30 spread.  I am realizing, I am a "little" behind in this project.  I'm going to try my hardest to get caught up because I fully intend to continue it next year as well.  I created this week's spread using the Clique Kits Glam Camp Kit.  It's one of my favorites.  This week showcases our trip to Willow Creek.  It was quite an adventure.  I'm really glad Erik brought his tools along.

Hi there!  It's been a busy month.   Even though I've had the week off this week, I'm still playing catch up on everything.    Anyhow, I realize I haven't posted in a bit, and I have been working on tons of projects.  I'm going to post them here for you today as well as the awesome sales going on at Clique Kits.  So, here goes.  If I've already posted some of them before sorry...

This page is for my Week in the Life.  I wanted to keep it simple.  I created a cutfile for each day of the week.

An 8.5x11 layout.  I love doing those.

Okay, I think that's all I haven't shared.  Now Clique Kits is having an awesome sale on their website until Monday.  Here is a list of the discount codes and sales.

Clique Kits "Homecoming" Pep Rally

Hello ladies!  You should have arrived from Marica's Blog.  What a busy and wonderful month it has been.  I can't believe we are already headed into the holidays, can you?  Today I have a layout to share with you, using the awesome "Homecoming" Kit.

I loved the wood grain paper from Webster's Pages.  I cut all of the Webster's Pages "Special Pages" up.  Those are the 2x2 squares I used to frame my pictures.  I figured, I would use up any left overs with Project Life or other layouts.  This month, I chose to add on  the buttons available in the School Store.  I'm so glad I did.  Almost all of my layouts have buttons on them.  Buttons are so easy to add to any page.  Make sure you check out the buttons and other goodies in the store.  My other favorite from the kit was the wood vaneer embellishments from Freckled Fawn.

Here is a closeup...Yes, the lovely is broken.  It was my fault.  I worked with it anyway.  It was just too cute to toss aside.  Besides, it gives the layout character.  I really love those squares and how real they look.  They worked so well with the photos I took of the boys last summer at the lake.

Please join me later this week, I will be sharing some Project Life Layouts featuring the awesome "Homecoming" Kit as well.  Please, make your way over to Rosann's blog.

If you aren't a subscriber to Clique Kits please do it now.  There is so much awesome goodness coming.  You won't want to miss it.  I promise.  Enjoy the rest of the hop.  And if you're lost, here is an entire list of the blog hoppers:

Mariah---You are here :)
