Clique Kits Geek Lab December Daily 2016 Day 10

CK_DT17-headshots-Hannah

Aloha!!

I am full into the swing of December Daily. I am so inspired by all the holiday products and feelings!! I have made the choice to embrace this mojo and just scrap holiday stuff when I feel inspired.

Today I am sharing with you the process video I made to go along with the Geek Lab blog post I wrote up last week.

Here is the link for the process video on the Clique Kits Youtube Channel:


I loved using the exclusive printables from the Clique Into the Holidays Workshop taught by Lacey.  There is so much included with this workshop on top of all the inspiration as well. Be sure to check that out. I am also using the Clique Into the Holidays 2017 kit to put together this pocket page spread.

This is Day 10 from my 2016 album. There were a few pictures that I wanted to use with a little bit of journalling.

Don’t forget to use my code Hannah10 and you can get 10% this worksop and all the Holiday Add ons in to the Clique Store.

Here is look at my spread,

Clique Kits

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,

Day 2/100: Dog Days of Summer

Aloha!!

This week has been super hot, especially for here. Today it was in the low 90s and muggy, and hazy and gross. No clouds, all sun. It is HOT. all we want to do is stay inside, close the blinds and stay cool in the AC.

Even the dog!!

I mean look at this pup. She is so spoiled. cuddling on the couch next to me as I edit photos and work on editing a process video while watching Top Chef.

Meanwhile, the cat.

Thinks my craft room, is her palace.

What you may not know is my craft room is a really a screened in porch, and is a tad bit warm today because of the heat. It is semi cooled from the house, but on a day like today, when the sun is blasting in, it has gotten really hot by the afternoon. I literacy had to pick up her big fat butt and make her get inside where the AC is. She is the Queen of the house.

I love these spoiled rotten animals though.  They really have made this house our home. They make sitting on the couch watching Hulu, nice and relaxing with the purr of contentment.

So even though it’s too hot to scrap in my scrap room at my desk, and I am chilling at the dining room table tonight to feed my creative nature. My story is about the little things that can turn your day around.

Watching my puppy jump through the cool water sprinkler as I water my dying lawn. Hearing my kids make dinosaur sounds from downstairs where their playroom is.

It’s the little things that make our days perfect.

I love the little moments.

 

 

Also here is a fun little sneak peek of what I was creating today!!

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.

Have an excellent day and enjoy the rest of the week my scrappy friends!!

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.

Change is in the hair Footer .jpg

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:
