Clique Kit DT Blog Hop

Hi Friends. It’s Sandra here, sharing another project life layout! Welcome to the Clique Kits Design Team  blog hop for 2015-2016 . I feel so blessed to be part of such an amazing design team and to work with such an awesome kit. 
I was really inspired by the products in this months kit and creating this layout really flowed for me.
I used some of my favorite colors in this layout so it really came together seamlessly. I really loved using the vellum and gold paper that came in the kit to layer with photos. This Layout really encompasses what makes up the core of who I am and for me, thats all the amazing people I'm surrounded with. 

Hope you enjoyed my Layout and the Blog Hop! If you haven't already be sure and checkout all the other amazing layouts my fellow DT ladies created. 

Here is the complete list for your reference:

Thanksgiving Project life spread 2014

This is the last Layout I created for Project life and I really loved how it turned out! I don't pre-plan my project life spreads so its always so cool to watch them organically come together. I decided to have an insert for this spread because I had extra picture for the month of November which is why I posted the photo above first which is the layout with the insert and the bottom is without the insert. If you wanna see how I created this layout be sure to checkout my YouTube channel which is linked on the side bar or by clicking on the word Youtube < here. 
This is my insert page and I think it turned out really nice considering it was my first time adding an insert. I was scared at first the insert would stand out to much but in the end it really looked cohesive with my layout. I created a shaker card pocket by sewing a pocket closed ( with sequin) and added a cork 3x4 card over the top of it. For the journaling card I just whipped out my type writer and left that card quite simple because I didn't feel it needed anything else. The bottom card is quite simple so with a very small cluster of alpha stickers, star paper clip and studio calico masking tape. Below this picture this insert is the other side of the insert.

" Take Ten " September Sneak Peak

Hey Crafty Peeps!
If  your subscribed to my YouTube channel then you know I'm on "The Studio 29" design team! I'm so excited to share with you guys the sneak peek of their September Kit. I have always loved these kits even before I was on the design team and I know you guys will because you can't beat the quality and price of this amazing kit. 
I love this whole kit but at most of you know my craft addiction of choice is stamps and art supplies so I decided to combine them! If you guys decide to subscribe to this kit then you will get this super cute photo polymer stamp set (which I'm currently obsessing over).

To create the same look I did your gonna need similar items shown in this photo but you could easily substitute the masking take with washi tape or the distress inks with watercolors, color mists etc. I used what I had in my stash so I encourage you to do the same but the one item that you will need is the stamp set itself. For a step by step tutorial be sure to checkout my YouTube channel.

Labor Day challenge!

Hey Crafty Peeps!
I thought in honor of Labor Day I would join in on the challenge over at http://butterflyreflectionsink.blogspot.com/! If you haven't checked out there blog or there store yet then you need to pop on by because they have fun challenges and the store owner Vanessa is so nice! I decide for this challenge I would create a custom project life card with a fall theme since fall is my favorite time of year! I'm really inspired by nature and tree's which pretty much sums up fall for me.
The challenge mood board inspired me to pull out my water color palette since the feathers have that typical water color look to them. and the tree photo as well as the board walk with flip flops inspired me to add some wood grain type design elements!
I water colored the leaves on this card and used various sizes to add dimension and balance. I also went ahead and painted the script in the circle ( That is my own handwriting not a stamp) and I really love that quote. I used a light pink distress ink on the edges of the circles to add a small pop of color. The wood grain background is a Hero arts stamp which I stamped in archival brown ink and I sponged the edges of the card. I love the way this card turned out and cannot wait to use it in my project life album! Hope you guys like ( Now I'm off to drink a spice pumpkin latte).
