I was so excited when Clique called me from the wait list and said I could start getting subscriptions. I really like Clique Kits. They come with great papers and embellishments. I especially love the custom made flair and custom 3 x 4 and 4 x 6 cards. They are beautiful.
I was totally in love with the May Kit. I loved the mix of watercolors with the craft paper. It is called Carnival and is centered around Amy Tangerine's Rise and Shine Collection. I love getting kits because you can get so many of the bits and pieces that sell out so fast on other sites.
When I first get my kits, I like to take everything out of the packaging. If it's in the package, I'm much less likely to use it. Everything comes out of the package and I get everything all ready to go.
I also cut the cut-apart sheet into pieces, so they are easy to use and throw on a page.
Since this kit came with some paint. My thoughts immediately went to painting some of these craft pages. I knew the paint would look great on the craft paper.
I added paint to all three of these pages. I really loved the paint in the little triangles. It really made that page really POP.
I used the triangle page on this great page from my birthday last month. I also added the balloon watercolor card, which is exclusive to Clique Kits. Then I added some fun embellishments and bits and pieces. I'm so happy with how the bright colors really go with the fun feel of a great birthday party.
Happy Birthday Mom.
Next I was totally drawn to all the bright colors to make a fun summery layout. This layout is all about having ice cream with Grandma. It was a fun simple moment I wanted to document. I love how the layout is so bright and happy.

Next, I used some blues and craft paper to document my daughter making bread with her grandpa. I love how the blue and white help it to fee airy and light while the craft paper grounds it.
Lastly, I made a Paige Evans inspired page. I love how she mixes together so many different patterns and bright colors. I used all my bits and pieces to do some hand cut letters. This was time consuming, but kind of relaxing. It was a little tricky to get all the letter to look right, but it's a very forgiving technic. You want the letters to look handmade. Then I added some fun embellishments to tie the page together.
I'll Love You Forever
I can't wait for the next Clique Kit!
