Aloha!! It's Hannah here with you today. Can you believe it's almost December already!! I admit I am trying to hurry and finish my last year's December Daily. It was the first year I didn't finish it. I am determined to get as much done before December starts so I can then focus on this year's December Daily.
Today I am using the Clique Kits Clique Into the Holidays Kit. This kit is perfect for documenting those precious December Memories.
I am currently working on Day 7 in my December Daily album. I am using a 4 ring album I bought in the Clique Store last year. I bought it in the spring and saved it. for many of the pockets I used the journaling 3X4 cards from the pattern papers. They are so cute. If you have little kids or love cute cuddly animals this is perfect. The 7th last year was so cold, the temperature dipped below freezing which is odd for where I live.
I used the tag and a Brr die cut to add my date on the page. In this album I am not using all the same numbers which makes it easy to use numbers that match the papers I am using for that day.
I love how by layering a few pieces you have made a homemade journaling card that matches your whole spread. Even when mixing different types of products.
I mixed patterns and used the border strips to add interest and tie the papers together. I love the hint of gold on the date sticker. I used a gold journaling pen on the other card so there was more gold throughout the spread. I really think when using pockets it helps tie them together when you use similar elements on other pockets.
I layered patterned paper and the border strip under my photo. I only added a few similar stickers and die cuts to give the photo breathing room.
I really like to keep my December Daily spread fairly simple. There are so many pages that it really doesn't need much. Like adding a brrr sticker to my weather app photo. also using a photo like this it tells the story of the day but also gives me insight for the rest of the week.
I really love the way this gold pen adds some pizzazz to my card without adding a lot of bulk.
Here is a look at the rest of my spread. Nice and simple but it still has lots of texture and color. By using my Clique into the Holidays Kit it really made it easy to put together this spread.
You could also add the Clique into the Holidays printables in your album for simple fun and easy cards. You could even add your journaling in Photoshop before printing them off.
I hope you all make sure you share your holiday scrapping in our Facebook Group. This could also give you some extra ideas for things to do in your own holiday album or layouts.
Have an Inspired Day!!!
Happy Tuesday! This year I'm hosting a Holiday Workshop for Clique Kits. I'm really excited and motivated to get a Holiday Album completed this year (probably for the first time ever). If you have issues completing your Holiday Albums, this workshop is for you! We have a great group of scrapbookers that are ready to motivate, create, and share!
Today, I want to share a piece of that workshop (be sure to browse to the bottom for a giveaway...for workshop attendees).
Unexpectedly, my favorite paper in the Clique into Holidays Kit 2017 is this frame design paper. It is the paper I used on my opening page and the first paper I ran out of in the kit. For this 4" x 6" piece I decided to add stamps from various stamp sets to each of the frames.
I looked through my stash of holiday stamps and found some that I loved and that would work in these rectangles.
I used a variety of different designs to fill the squares. I'm attaching the "gansta wrappa" piece to the center of this card and I felt like that was TOO much black and white. So I added color to this 4" x 6" piece using Zig Real Brush Markers.
I framed the "gansta wrappa" 2" x 2" piece with gold paper and popped it up on this 4" x 6" background. I love being able to take a printed paper and making it my own!
Alright! I now have a giveaway for one lucky Clique Kits: Holiday Workshop Attendee. To qualify, register for the Holiday Workshop by 11:59pm CST on November 26th. You will win this prize package of Bella Blvd papers, embellishments, and a 4" x 4" album (I apologize, this is open to USA residence only).

So, I had a dilemma this month. I have 5 beautiful girls to scrapbook, including pictures I took with them wearing pink and black. Study Abroad is definitely NOT pink lol!! What's a girl to do right?! Well, I decided to scrapbook out of order..... again. I actually do this all the time because lets face it, not all my current pictures will coordinate with what Clique Kit I'm working with right now. So, I created a quick pocket page layout with a couple photos of Sari from Kindergarten that I hadn't done. (It had to be quick this week my friends... all three of my little girls have yucky bronchitis right now!! BLA!!) These two pictures were outtakes and ones I didn't scrap. No reason really, other than Sari was making some silly faces. I guess that made these photos perfect for this month! I created my layout with my Project Life page protectors. I added a few of our Clique Kits exclusive printables, along with filling a big pocket with some fabulous Clique Kit Study Abroad sequins and Pink Fresh Studio color block wood veneers. Short and sweet today CK friends!!

We are just wrapping up Summer School this week and the Clique Kits girls are already thinking about what lies ahead. That's because we are so excited to share the news about the not one but TWO special limited edition kits we are sharing with the Clique this holiday season.
This time of year is so busy and filled with memory making, we want to be sure our subscribers and friends are well prepared to scrap and craft the holidays away. We are going to make it really easy and inexpensive for you to get your holiday inspiration delivered to your front door! Just like every monthly Clique Kit, our two limited edition holiday kits will be chock full of the products you love. Designer collections, must have embellishments, and all of the little extras that make Clique Kits unique and special- all affordable and a special value for our subscribers especially!
So, without further ado, meet the very first Clique Cards Holiday Edition…
Even though we are naming it Clique Cards, this kit is perfect for holiday cards, tags, stationery, and party decorations and even pocket page or traditional scrapbooking layouts. Oh! Deer was just released this summer by Fancy Pants Designs and features a beautiful, fresh and modern take on the traditional Christmas colors adding in a pop of aqua blue and a little pink for fun. Of course, while the patterned paper will be from a full 6 x 6 pad and scaled for cards, there is no reason you would have to use this kit just for cards. But we know from our in house card expert who designed this kit, Erica Thompson, that card makers are going to just LOVE it!
Clique Kits wants you to get your hands on this kit when you can maximize use of it all season long just as soon as the products become available from the manufacturers. So DON'T WAIT for the full kit reveal to order as it may be too late by then!
Price Only $24.99
Subscribers save $5 off the kit price to pre-order and have Clique Cards shipped with the October kit at no extra shipping charge!
Next up we have another AMAZING limited edition kit which will be shipping with the November Kits in time for you to use it for your December Daily, holiday mini, project life spreads, or traditional scrapbook layouts. This kit leaves December documenting up to YOU to do it YOUR WAY! Meet the first annual Clique into the Holidays...
Unlike our monthly kits, which spotlight a designer, Clique into the Holidays will be all about providing variety and an array of products from numerous companies and designers. It is a sampler of holiday favorites! In fact, all four Clique Kits girls selected their favorite new products and painstakingly crafted a beautiful, perfectly coordinated kit we know will be thoroughly usable for any purpose and a variety of styles! For those of you who love how our kits coordinate, this kit will be no different. Of course there will be exclusive products like flair, unique and hand made items, and the digital products that extend the kit beyond your expectations. There will also be add ons in the school store with seasonal products all fall/winter long. We can't wait to share with you all the new inventory we are ordering as it becomes available in stock from most of the major manufacturers who are shipping over the next two months.
