Guest Designer: Clique Kits September 2015 “These Moments”

I love being a part of the “clique”…the Clique Kits that is! As I mentioned here, I am the September 2015 Guest designer for the Clique Kits scrapbooking club. And here is my first submission for the Clique Kit Blog!


When I received the Captured Kit, I couldn’t wait to make a layout! This kit included papers and embellishments from Cocoa Vanilla and Seven Paper.

About this layout…

Without a doubt, I love being a mom! It is the most important role I have and I cherish every moment that I have with my little munchkin. Recently my family and I went on a short family vacation to Austin, TX – a quick getaway from our normal routine. This picture was taken while we were enjoying a wonderful breakfast buffet at the Embassy Suites Arboretum.


After a full day of activities, we later settled into our hotel room. I decided to look at the pictures that I took that day and stopped at this photo. There are some days when I cannot believe that my little sprite is becoming such a lovely big girl. It seemed like only yesterday that I was holding her in my arms; she was ever so tiny. Now, she is a full fledge kindergartener, full of spunk and energy. I don’t care how big she gets…she will always be my baby! I am so glad that I took a moment to stop and take it all in.

Life goes by so fast.



I decided to create a layered look for both the base of the layout and the around the photo. For the base, I used three patterned papers, Lucky Dip and Flower Patch from the Hello Lovely collection by Cocoa Vanilla, and Baxter by Sever Paper. I mounted my photo on a glassine bag (which contained some of my Clique Kit goodies) and layer a fun assortment of die cuts, stickers, and tags from the Hello Lovely collection by Cocoa Vanilla and the Cienna collection by Elle’s Studio around my photo. I adhered all of this on the black corrugated paper from Fancy Pants Designs.


I used the exclusive Clique Kit pocket card as a space for my journaling and for my title, and the Gray Woodgran Alphas from Evalicious for the subtitle.


I added a doily that came with the packaging from my kit, along with exclusive Clique kit flare, sequins, and bit of silver thread and twine that I grabbed from my stash. I really love to create free flowing layout designs that are fun and have a lot of movement.

Another memory…Captured!
