Hello Hello! I am so excited to announce that I will be a Guest Designer for Precious Remembrance Stamp Shop! They have a new stamp releasing in February and I can not wait to share what I have created! But until then you can check out my intro post their blog HERE! Remember to leave a little love behind and check out the fabulous stamps that are in their shop too! I have loved Precious Remembrance stamps for awhile now and I remember the first time I was on their online shop! I could not wait to get the stamps in my hands and start creating! Clique Kits started carrying them in the shop and they flew off the shelves every time we stocked them! Here are a few of the projects I have created using a few of their stamps! These first three projects use the Happy Art stamp set which is my favorite set from them and you can find it in the Clique Kits Shop HERE!! Purchase this stamp set this week and get 20% off by using the code HAPPYART at checkout!
The next layouts use Positive Thoughts Stamp set!
and one last layout using the New Day Stamp Set!
Stay tuned for upcoming projects using the new Precious Remembrance Stamp Shop! Be sure to visit them on Facebook and Instagram too! Thanks so much for stopping today!!
Today I have a layout to share that I created using the October 2016 Clique Kit that features Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills! This kit also has some beautiful papers from Simple Stories Posh collection and a fun mix of embellishments that include Clique Kits exclusives!
I am also using a beautiful cutfile from 17Turtles designed by Juliana Michaels that you can pick up for free on her website! Make sure to check out her other cutfiles too!
Juliana has a great blog post on this cut file that you can check out HERE with great tutorial on using the cutfile to cut out your pattern paper pieces to back the file! It has to much faster than tracing and cuting it out by hand like I did!
I cut my file out with some white cardstock from My Minds Eye that I picked up in the Clique Kits shop! I love this cardstock and has become a must in my stash!
Embellishments I did keep pretty light so the background took the main focus but I did add some of the ephemera pieces from the October kit and some white thread from my stash!
The little moments acrylic piece is from Color Cast Designs and was included in the June 2016 Clique Kit that you can check out and pick up HERE! I have been hoarding this piece forever and I think this was the perfect layout to finally use it on! Here is a look at my final layout! I just love how it tured out!
You can check out my process video on my YouTube channel and get a little story behind the photo HERE! Thank you so much for stopping my blog today! Let me know what you think of my layout today by leaving me a comment down below!
Hey Everyone! Wow! It has been a very long time since I have posted to my blog!! This will change in 2017! I will be blogging more, sharing more videos and just creating more! Enjoying what I love to do and documenting every moment of our lives! I wanted to pop in quick today and let you know I have a new layout up on the Clique Kits blog using the beauitful January 2017 kit! Clique Kits also has a very limited Valentine kit that is the perfect partner to the January kit!

Hello Hello and welcome to the Clique Kits August Blog Share and September Kit reveal! I am so excited that you are all joining us today and we hope that you leave the hop feeling inspired and ready to create!
If this is your first blog share with Clique Kits then let me give you a little run down on what it is all about! Each month the Design Team and any subscibers that want to join in share projects made with the current kit! Kinda like a pep rally for the big event and that big event being the reveal of our next kit! It is a great way to share what we have all been creating with the kit and inspire others who have yet to crack open that kit! For me it is something I look forward to each month! We spend so much time and pour our hearts into each kit and makes me happy to see our subscibers projects and memories documented! If you are not yet a subscriber we would love to have you join us! Only a few spots open beginning with out September kits which is one of my favorites!! CLICK HERE to subscribe or to purchase a la carte then CLICK HERE!
Now onto my project for today!! I had so much fun with the August kit! You can gran one for yourself HERE in the shop! I wanted to pull out an old cutfile that is one of my favorites from May 2015!
I backed some of the circles with pattern paper from the kit and also from the 6×6 paper pad that was an add on for August! I love picking up the 6×6 pads because they are perfect for backing cut files like this!
The photo I am documenting is of our daughter on her first day of school! She is our only daugher and boy is she a busy girl! She keeps us on our toes that is for sure! She is not much for the color pink so I was surprised when she picked this pink shirt to wear on the first day! Of coarse I need to highlight that pink by cutting the file out in pink!
I added some buttons from the fabulous May Flaum 28 Lilac Lane collection! I have had these in my stash since the CHA show and I am so happy to use them on this layout! Here is a look at my final layout!
For your chance to win an August kit of your own make sure to comment along the way! The more comments you leave the more chances you have to win! Your next stop in the hop is Kat! We hope you enjoy the hop and have a wonderful day! For a look at the beautiful September kit please check it out down below!!

I have had such a great time being the Guest Designer for Pretty Little Studio! The Here Comes the Sun collection was so fun to work with and I still have a lot of product and projects to share so stay tuned! Today I want to share two more layouts using this awesome collection designed by Marie-Pierre Capistran! This first layout I used The Hello Hearts cut file from The Cut Shoppe!
I just love the colors in this collection and fun backing this cut file with the beautiful papers! The photo is of my little Eli and my niece. I love the how light and airy this layout turned out!
My next layout used the Addicted to Love cut file from The Cut Shoppe and I just love this cut file!! I backed some of the file with pattern paper from the Here Comes the Sun collection and added some black cardstock behind some of the tiny hearts.
I just love the die cuts in the Here Comes the Sun collection so I added some around my photo and backed my photo with lots of paper scraps from backing the cut file! Here is a look at the final layout and a few more close ups!
You can pick up the Here Comes the Sun 6×6 paper pads in the Clique Kits shop or you can grab them and more of the collection HERE at Pretty Little Studio! I have also picked a few of my favorite products from Pretty Little Studio and you have a chance to win them HERE!
