I am so honored to asked to be apart of this amazing kit club again!! These past six months have went so fast but have been amazing. Here is some things about me..

  1. What is your favorite technique to use on your layouts?    This really quite a technique but I love to use paint on my layouts. Without some kind of paint, it just doesn’t feel complete. I don’t even discriminate on the type of paint either 😉 Another technique I love to use is layering. The more layers the better.
  2. Who is your favorite designer?   This is a loaded question!! How can you even pick one or even two?! I will say lately I have really been enjoying watching Ali Brown (an art journal artist), Zinia. If we are talking about scrapbooking designers, I love Amy Tangerine’s heart and enthusiasm. I have met her a few times, and her love for playing with paper and getting creative is just infectious. I also love using Maggie Holmes paper designs. I also love the bright colors and patterns in Paige Evans designs. So dreamy!!
  3. How did you get started scrapbooking?  I started scrapbooking in the winter of 2014. We took a Make-A-Wish for my daughter Leilani. She wanted to be a zookeeper for a day at the San Diego Zoo. I wanted to document the photos from that trip, since it was so special. I wanted her and the other kids to remember those fun moments of our trip.  I was in love with just one stick of glue to paper. Though I really think the chance to play and be creative was just what I needed in that time of our lives. Going through lots of chemo with Leilani, taking pictures and realizing how much of our lives were normal and how much these smiles meant to me. It was just what the doctor prescribed for this momma!! From there I really just have fallen in love with all the amazing things this hobby has to offer.
  4. What do you love the most about creating?   I think coming form my last question to this one, my answer is so simple. I love how when I create and am at my desk, I am not just a mom, a wife, a daughter, a care-giver, a massage therapist, a cook, a maid, a teacher, I am Hannah, just me. I love that creating allows me to be my true me!! I love that I get to be in charge of the stories I want to tell and share for later. I love history and old stuff. I love that I am in control what someone can find out about the world I live in. I also just love to play with pretty paper, embellishments and art supplies, like a little kid.

Here are all the places you can find me on Social Media,

Check out their Instagram accounts and see what they made this month with their July Kits.
Now for the fun part where I get to show you what I made.
I am using the Main July Pool Party Kit. It features Elle’s Studio Live.Laugh.Love Collection. Really Bright and Colorful, I really wanted to highlight that.
Here are some close ups and see all the goodness,
CK Pep Rally July Sneak Peek
I decided that I wanted to use the labels from the branding strip. I color matched them with this stripped pattern paper. I popped them up on dimensional foam to add interest.
IMG_7984
I used plain white card stock so that I could add media on the background and have it work with all the colors from the July Main Kit.
IMG_7985
I used multiple photos on this layout. My photos were also really bright. Using the white background really made all the color pop. This photo of a parrot fish is so cool. These pictures were taken at our local Zoo.
IMG_7987
I created a cut file with my own brush script and scanned it into my computer. It is really easy and really fun. This title is perfect and created specially for this layout. “One Man’s Trash is another’s Art.”
IMG_7988
This trash was taken right from Puget Sound and collected, then sorted and used to create these really cool and huge sculptures of the zoo’s wildlife. See my kid’s standing under the big Puffin. That is my kid’s favorite zoo animal. I used a pen to doodle sketch faux stitching lines outlining the cut file. I also colored around the cut file with different colored markers to match the colors near them.
This blue marker looks really cool with the blue water color peeking from under the photo’s edges.
IMG_7990
I made sure to use puffy stickers and enamel dots in the same color area. I really wanted a look almost similar to how Irit Landgraf gets on her layouts.
IMG_7991
IMG_7993
 I finished off with Black color shine drops to make the color pop more. This layout is one of my favorites this summer. I love how the story and the photos, and the collection really work together to document my own story.
Here is one final look at this layout.
CK Pep Rally One Mans Trash Staged
I have a scrapbooking process video where you can watch me create this layout.

Clique Kits July Challenge

ck-jul17-mainkit_2_orig.jpg

Aloha!!

Today over at the Clique Kits Blog we are sharing the July Challenge. The theme this month is Anything Goes. We are also using up some of our Add On products from the Clique Kits Store.

It is always fun for me to add old stash with my new stuff. It helps me get excited about using all the product I have so I make good use out of it.

This is the layout I made using both the Main Pool Party July Kit featuring the Live Laugh Love Collection by Elle’s Studio and the Traveler’s Notebook Pool Party July Kit featuring Ain’t Life Grand by Pretty Little Studio.

CK Anything Goes Change is in the hair.jpg

This mixed media layout was so fun to make. I mixed my watercolors with my gelatos around many various sized circles to get a really cool look. I used some Shimmerz Dazzlerz and purple acrylic paint with my finger to help add some more pink around the circles. I doodled around each of the circles to make them pop. I also used a stamp set from Pink Fresh Studios that I got as an add on. there are some circle elements as well as some fun phrases.

IMG_7691.jpg

I scattered some of the acrylic Elle’s Studio pieces in the circles. I added a ton of enamel dots, some were from this month’s kit but some were from last month’s kit too.  I wished I could have used the Bella Blvd Stars though too.

IMG_7692.jpg

By adding the acetate paper in the inside the main circle it really added some extra color to this already colorful layout. I really just wanted this layout to be really playful. I am documenting when I colored my hair dark purple last month. I love that I can be really playful with my hair and have a little fun. I love expressing myself through hair colors and things I wear.

IMG_7685.jpg

I used the 4×6 cards for my layers behind the photo. By keeping them really natural it helped my photo really stand out.

IMG_7686.jpg

I added the title in a semi circle around the big circle. I did a play on words with the title. I wrote Change is in the hair instead of Change is in the air. I used the Copper Pink Fresh Studio Alpha’s from the June Kit.

IMG_7690.jpg

Lastly I scattered some die cuts from the main kit. I also added a Maggie Holmes fringe heart near my title. I love the idea of the butterfly transforming like I am transforming my look to fit my personality. These butterflies are so beautiful too.

IMG_7694.jpg

I hope you head over to the Clique Kits Blog and see what the other Design Team Members have made with their Kits and Add ons for the July Challenge. I hope you play along too. You have all month to get your layout or project done and tag us.

Clique Kits: Take Note Thursday

IMG_5787

 

Aloha!! I am taking on frames in Traveler’s Notebook on the Clique Kits Youtube Channel. I am using their June Kit which features the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart Collection. I also am mixing in a bit of the May Traveler’s Notebook Kit with my June Main Kit.

Here are some close up pics of my layout.

CK Take Note Thursday Close up Footer

I filled in some of the frames with pattern paper, I wanted to layer embellishments in them and highlight the embellishments.

IMG_6879

I used both chipboard frames and the die cut frames from the embellishment pack.

IMG_6881

I really love how the June Main kit and the May TN kit work together.

IMG_6884

I loved using the exclusive Printables from the June Main kit inside all the frames.

IMG_6883

I am using a square photo to document. I am working on a Traveler’s Notebook that I started in September 2015, when I was trying to do a TN instead of Project Life to document our month. This photo is showing some watercoloring I was working on to work on my Website logo. I love that tactile why of designing things. Instead of just working digital I wanted to create something with watercolor and then digital alter it to hit in the space I want.

IMG_6882

I love all the layered elements on this page.

Here is a look at the full Traveler’s Notebook Spread:

Silhouette print and Cut Tutorial (You Tube Video)

Aloha!!

I wanted to share with you a Tutorial I am posting to my Youtube Channel on how to use a print and cut. Many scrapbooking kit clubs offer print and cuts or printables. Many times it would be easier to just stick it in your Silhouette Cameo and cut it out instead of having to hand cut it out.

I am using the June Aquarelle Clique Kits Exclusive Traveler’s Notebook Printables.

I also created my own template in Adobo Photoshop as the image outline to use in the Silhouette Studio Software to use the print and cut feature.

You may copy my image to use for the silhouette if you want. Know that you must purchase the printables from Clique Kits in order to use them. You can however make your own images to cut with this template. It has some tags, flags and a 3×4 journalling card space. (You need two images in order to do the print and cut feature in the Silhouette Software.)

Clique Kits Print and Cut outline.png

In order to use this image in the silhouette software it needs to be a PNG file.

Check out my tutorial below:

If you have any questions about the print and cut feature don’t hesitate to ask!!

Look forward to Tutorial on changing a png to a cut file next week!! Later in June I will be sharing a tutorial on creating a brush script title into a cut file as while on the Clique Kits Blog!!

Clique Kits Design Team Layout: Shine Like the Stars

IMG_5787.jpg

Aloha!! I hope your day has been delightful! We have had glorious weather the past couple of weeks here in the Pacific Northwest Area, and we have been taking advantage of it by spending a lot of our time outside. Getting our garden ready, doing some much needed spring yard work done, also just soaking up some of those Vitamin D rays and playing with our puppy.

Today I want to share a layout I made using the June Aquarelle Kit from Clique Kits which features the Cocoa Vanilla Studios Wild at Heart Collection. It’s a gorgeous kit. It’s been really hard to know what to use first because I want to use it all.

I started off by cutting some of the exclusive cut files from this month with some from earlier and past kits.  I also roughly sketch out my own sketch on some lined notebook paper. I do this when I have an idea of how I want the layout to look like. This helps me just into the groove of creating too.IMG_6145

I then used acrylic paint that I watered down and created a background that was ombre, I wanted it to look like a night sky going from black to blue to purple. I splattered some Shimmerz Acritonez in white and Navy to look like stars.

I glued down my cut files and then stitched lines from the top to the layout to the stars. I wanted it to look like the stars were hanging from the sky. I had a small issue with the tension in my thread so I had to compromise and only do a few lines. I then strung some of the May Exclusive Sequins on some string and hung it in one spot. It ended up being a really cool element.

IMG_6178.jpg

I layered some embellishments up at the top so I could cover some of the really loose threads and layered some of the kits exclusive printables. The black tags from the Traveler’s Notebook printable are my favorite.

IMG_6185

I added the middles of the star cut file on pop dots and scattered them around the layout. There were some copper stars on the Alpha from Pink Fresh Studio in the kit and I used those too. This really tied down the concept of a night time starry sky.

IMG_6182.jpg

I also used the Wild at Heart glitter enamel dots around the layout with some of the yellow flower sequins. I was hoping the yellow flowers would look more like stars.

IMG_6181

I simply layered some of the papers behind my 4×6 photo of my kiddos on their first day of school. I kept the layers really simple because there is a lot going on on the layout. Also I realized once I had all the cut files down I almost had no room for the photo at all. OOPs. I hate when I do that too. I really didn’t want a double page spread at all, so I just decided to cover more of the star cut file than I would have liked. In the end it all worked out fine.

IMG_6189.jpg

IMG_6187.jpg

I used some of the April’s kit Elles Studio white alphas with the copper ones from this kit and made a mini title not eh photo itself. I even stitched through the white alphas. I really love how that looks.

IMG_6180.jpg

I wrote the journalling under the photo and kept it nice and simple. Other than it being the first day of school there wasn’t anything more to this photo anyway.

I finished the layout off with some gold and white Heidi Swapp Color Shine. I like the way the gold looks like stars!!

Here is my finished layout.

Clique Kits: Art Studio

Aloha!!! Are you like me and have an iNSD hangover? I didn’t even scrap as much as I wanted to either?! LOL!!  It sure was fun though! My biggest highlight was meeting up with some local Scrap Gals ladies and chatting and doing some scrapping together. There is just something really fun about connecting with people in the flesh who love the things you do. The extrovert in me was jumping up and down knowing I am finding my tribe here in Washington and really connecting to this area.

Here is a pic from this weekend!!

IMG_5391

I can’t wait to get together with the ladies again.

Yesterday I felt the iNSD flow into this week with a blog post I had go live on the Clique Kits Blog. I am using the Sorbet May Kit, which has the Pink Fresh Studio Dream On Collection.

18010946_656661547852017_8949764247707144646_n

Here is a sneak peek of my double page layout for their May Challenge which was to use lots of gold, mixed media and the exclusive sketch and Cut File designed by Design Team Member Maryam.

ck_may17_sketch.png

IMG_5427

I used the cut file with my sketch pens on the Silhouette Cameo, this feature is so much fun!! If you haven’t tried it, you really need too.

I used lots of exclusive printables that are available through the kit club. This month they are designed by Maryam and match the kit really well and super cute!!

There are also are printables for the new Traveler’s Notebook Kit Subscription  that started this May.  When you subscribe to the Main Kit and add the Traveler’s Notebook subscription you get a discount on your shipping price as well. There are options for getting a 6 month subscription or a 3 month subscription with the Traveler’s Notebook Kit and it coordinates with the Main kit as well.

Don’t forget too, if you use my code Hannah10 you can get  10% off the add ons in the store!!

You can also watch my process video for this layout on the Clique Kits Youtube Channel. The layouts I post there, don’t get posted anywhere else. So you may want to subscribe to their Youtube Channel so you will get notifications that I (or any of the other YT design team) posts on the YT Channel.

 

I hope you keep checking on and working on all the Challenges the Design Team posted in the Facebook Group this past iNSD weekend, they are open until the end of the month.  YAY!! Because if you are anything like me, you didn’t get many of them started this weekend anyway. Plus what more fun is there than iNSD lasting throughout the whole month?!! 😉

I hope you have an inspiring week, my scrappy friends!! I will see you around!!

Clique Kits Youtube Channel: Old Meets New Saturday

18010946_656661547852017_8949764247707144646_n

Aloha!! How is everyone doing?! Today has been a lovely day, and I am glad the days are getting nicer and warmer. It almost felt like summer here today.

Today I am sharing with you a layout I made for the Clique Kits Youtube Channel. Saturday is Old meets new theme. I had a tons of my March Play kit (Which showcases Shimelle Little By Little) left, so I decided to mix that with my new Sorbet May Kit.

The bright and spring colors went perfect together. I had fun using some old pictures from last year’s Easter. These images of my son Samuel being goofy like always crack me up. I love how is emotions are so clear on his face. Sometimes I wonder if he ate this way just to get a laugh.

IMG_4854.jpg

I cut up a bunch of the papers from the Sorbet Kit papers and layered them throughout and on the side of the layered photos. I love how each corner and edge stick out.

IMG_4846.jpg

I use lots of the adds ons from the March Play Kit, like the Shimelle wood buttons.

IMG_4852.jpg

Adding diecuts and puffy stickers form the main Sorbet Kit, it really added to the layers.

IMG_4838.jpg

Overall I just wanted a fun layout to mirror my photos.

IMG_4841

Here is the process video from the Clique Kits Youtube Channel.

 

I hope you enjoyed this layout today and are inspired!!

Just Being me is fun

 

Head over to the store to purchases your May Add ons and use my code Hannah10 to get a discount. Also don’t forget about the new Traveler’s Notebook kit to be released in May.
