Hello all! Jody here today with two orders of scrappy, fun business!! First up our winners from our last Pep Rally!! This month's Pep Rally challenge was "Captured on Film" where we were challenged to use a viewfinder, film stripe or document something with that overall 'feel'. This month was especially difficult to choose our winner, because our subbies were totally rocking this challenge!! After much deliberation, this month's challenge winner is Danielle de Konink. You can check out her fabulous layout and blog Pics and Cheesecake. Congrats Danielle!!!!
Next up, our comment winner is Lynn Darda with the lovely blog From My Bungalow!!! Thanks so much of hanging out with us Clique Kits girls Lynn! We appreciate the support of our followers and appreciate all your sweet comments on our blogs! You'll each get a $10 credit to our Clique Kits store to start shopping or save it for something bigger! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Plus our 25% off sale is going on through Sunday, August 3rd at midnight!! It's a perfect time to scoop up some goodies with product credit + a sale!! The sale code is AUGUST25.
Next, I'm sharing some fun pocket-style pages using my Project Life page protectors and Simple Stories SN@P cards! These SN@P cards make it so super easy to put a fast layout together. For these layouts I used Simple Stories HER SN@P Cards and added sequins, punched shapes, cork elements (from Clique Into Summer), Simple Stories DIY Clear Photo Stickers and some lovely Studio Calico Alphas (pink, lower right photo). The HER SN@P cards complimented our June Kit, Show and Tell perfectly! If you're interested in picking up Show & Tell, now is the time!! There's only one left in stock! GO HERE :)
You probably recognize the 12x12 layout on the left from this post in June. I had several more photos I wanted to incorporate so I decided to use a pocket page on the opposite side, which worked out perfectly. I love it when a two page spread comes together like this! I feel like I haven't done a two page spread in awhile!
Here are some close ups! One thing I love to do, besides add lots of layers, is to add alpha and phrase stickers right onto my photos! This is a perfect way to utilize that 'white space' in a photo. By white space I'm talking about an area of your photo not occupied by the subject of your photo. For a good example of this, take a look at the photo of my Abby and Hannah in the lower right corner of the pocket page.
Aren't these pocket pages fun! They're very easy also, just add a SN@P Card, layer some punched shapes and you're good to go! If you'd like to learn more about adding more fun things to your pocket pages, like sequins and memorabilia, I'd encourage your to take our Clique Into Summer workshop! It may say "Summer" in the title, but the techniques are good year-round. It's an awesome 12 week, self-paced workshop that covers a wide variety of topics including pocket pages, photography, meaningful journaling, watercolors and more! The workshop itself is actually FREE to our fabulous subscribers and only $15.00 to everyone else. That's jam packed full of creative fun just for YOU! Here's the link ~ CLIQUE INTO SUMMER so you can check it out. (Note, the actual kit is sold out but you can use your stash to work through the entire workshop!)
I have one more quick pocket page to share with you. I created it with all my scraps from my April Kit, Debutante. I had some papers, printables, exclusive Clique kits flair and foam Amy Tangerine Thickers left, so I decided to create a pocket page with them. Here's what I came up with by adding some Studio Calico wood veneers, stickers from my stash and additional sequins.
Thanks so much for spending your time with us today!! I hope my pocket pages inspired you to grab some Simple Stories SN@P cards while they're on sale! That's in addition to our extra 25% off discount with code AUGUST25. The extra 25% off sale only runs through Sunday, August 3rd at midnight friends, so be sure to go grab some goodies. The Simple Stories SN@P cards won't be restocked!! Also, don't forget about our fabulous Design Team call going on now! All the details are HERE!
Happy scrappin' my friends!
