Clique Kits – My TN – Colorful and Fun

Hello Clique friends. I’m back today to share a couple of spreads in my traveler’s notebook. The super fun March Play kit was perfect to give my pages lots of color and a happy vibe.

For my first spread, I decided to use a couple of pictures of my daughter playing in the snow.

I always start by covering the pages with cardstock, as it makes them thicker and more difficult to tear. I picked white for the left side and patterned paper from the Little by little collection for the right side. I then fussy cut two of the wreaths out of the Clever Little Fox paper to use them as a base for my photos.

For the opposite side, I went for a tone-on-tone look. Ephemera pieces and stickers match the colors in the background. To bring the spread together I used a branding strip across the bottom of both pages.

My second spread took a little bit more time as I decided to add some stitching to it.

One of the patterned papers in the kit has several words in different colors that I absolutely love. I picked the ‘heart’ one, as the color matched my daughter’s shirt in the picture. I glued the letters onto the polka dot patterned paper and stitched around them using the same color thread. The texture it adds is what I was going for. I completed the page with some ephemera pieces.

For the right side of the spread, I went for a simple look and only used a few embellishments that matched the colors on the opposite side.

I hope you felt inspired today to use the beautiful March Play kit in your traveler’s notebook. The Clique store has a lot of supplies to make your spreads come together quickly and beautifully. I can’t say enough how amazing the kits are each month. They are very versatile and can be used for a variety of projects.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

Clique Kits – My Traveler’s Notebook

Hello everyone! Enza here with you today to share a spread in my traveler’s notebook using the gorgeous Hey, Sugar January kit.

I love to be able to scrapbook on a smaller scale from time to time. It is easier and lot faster. When I first started using a traveler’s notebook, I was a little uncertain on what I wanted to focus on. I knew I didn’t want to use it as a journal or a diary. As I create full page layouts and Project Life spreads for our albums, I didn’t see the point in replicating the same idea in a smaller format. That said, I still wanted to tell our story in it. I decided to pick one picture (and only one) every month, and jot down some thoughts about it.

This picture was taken back in November, when we spent a fun day downtown Seattle playing tourists. I love the expression on our daughter’s face. It tells so much about her personality. Sweet, smart, and a little mischievous 😉

Since the pages in my traveler’s notebook are an off-white color, the first thing I did was cut out some white cardstock to cover them up with. I then fussy cut some flowers out of the Crate Paper Adore You 12×12 patterned paper and disposed them in a diagonal across the two pages.

I love the bits and pieces that come with this collection. Tags, hearts, acetate pieces are perfect to embellish your pages. I also added some of the exclusive January printables available to subscribers.

The little pocket was created by hand-stitching a card that came in the ephemera pack to a piece of patterned paper from the 6×6 paper pad (add-on for this month), while for my journaling tag I used the fun Crate Paper Lovely 12×12 patterned paper.

A few more embellishments completed the spread.
