October is here! In just a few days the gorgeous and fun October Girl Tribe Kits will be on their way out to subscribers. If there are any a la carte kits available for purchase you can find them here and here. Do you love the Shimelle Glitter Girl collection, or what? Yes, there is a lot of pink, and a lot of sparkle...a bit girly I know. Hence the name for our kits this month...Girl Tribe. This kit contains literally a rainbow of color and is bright and bold to the max. At Clique Kits we don't always go all out girly glam, but when we do, we do it in a BIG WAY! Embrace it sisters!
For today's kickoff I wanted to focus on my favorite patterned paper in the kit. I love typography and lettering in itself as art! I know that a lot of people see a paper with letters and think of using them to spell a title or fussy cutting them to use in journaling. I decided to go in a different direction and try using the letters as a design element. At first I thought of cutting the squares out and creating a grid design. But as I cut and piled up the squares a happy accident occurred! I liked the way they looked in a random heap behind my photo.
I had some scraps from the gold foiled vellum in the kit and some of the papers I used in other projects which I used to create my origami style hearts and a fun kite embellishment using some twine that was actually part of the kit packaging.
And now for the news about what's ahead this October!
On Saturday, October 7th, Clique Kits will be celebrating World Card Making Day in The Clique. You do not need to be a subscriber to join the Facebook group and you do not need a Clique Cards: Holiday Edition '17 to join the fun. We decided to get a jump on creating Christmas cards for this event though since we all know how fast the holiday season flies! We would love to have you play along with the hourly challenges and hope you find some inspiration for your own card making day.
