Sweet Friend


Hello there & welcome back!  I’m so glad you are joining us on our member blog share for the 2016 October Clique Kit, Sapphire.  I just love what all of these talented ladies have come up with using this kit.  It’s amazing all the different styles we all have, but are so exceptionally gorgeous in their own way.

Here’s the line-up for today’s blog hop.  Next on the hop is Sara Mishler.  Hopefully you can stop by & give each of them some encouragement:


Here’s a few close-ups of my layout using the 2016 October Clique Kits, Sapphire:



This layout is to document a special day I had recently with my friend Holly, whom I’ve known most of my life.  I wanted to make sure I put the story and photos in my scrapbook while it was still fresh in my memory.  I don’t know about you, but I tend to like the pages I scrap right after the event has occurred, as apposed to waiting several years, and then trying to remember my feelings of the day.


I know I have said this before, but I really do love this kit!  The colors are just beautiful and the Kit is jammed packed with so many wonderful goodies.  I find it makes it so easy to complete gorgeous layouts with very little effort because the kits are so well put together.


I really didn’t have a plan when I started this layout except that I knew I wanted to use the soft pink floral paper from Pink Fresh Studio as my background & some of the exclusive cards that come in the kit.  Of course, I had to add some of the Indigo Hills ephemera & wooden clips to my project to make it complete.  I simply love how it turned out!


Make sure you play along & leave a comment on each of the blogs for a chance to win one of these BEAUTIFUL kits!! 🙂

Thank you for stopping by today and I will be back again real soon.  Hope you will stop by the Clique Kits shop and check out this beautiful kit, along with some other amazing products sold in the Clique store.  Don’t forget to use my code, Danni10, to save 10% off!

You’re Fantastic

Hello & welcome to the Clique Kits blog share of our 2016-2017 new design team.  I am beyond thrilled to be part of such an incredible group of creators!!  I feel so blessed because I’ve admired so many of them for years…still have to pinch myself to believe my work is being featured along with theirs!

Today I am working with the Fabulous, Here Comes The Sun line, by Pretty Little Studio.  Isn’t it just dreamy?!



I just love working with this line so much..its so soft & airy, with pops of bright colors.  The 8×8 papers were perfect for making lots of layers behind my photos.  I really like the look of the acrylic pieces from the line..such an adorable embellishment to add to any layout or card.  I also decided to get out my Cuttlebug & do some die-cutting.  I finished it off by adding some sequins from my stash & a couple of the rubber charms from Cute Girl, Crate Paper.

Here’s a look at my finished page:
