Clique Kits Design Team Leader


Yes!!! You read that right!!! I've been keeping this wonderful news for some time now and today, I'm so happy and proud to share it with all of you! Clique Kits invited yours truly to be one of their Design Team Leaders

I'm so happy and kind of scared to be starting this new chapter in my creative journey. I know lots will be expected of me and I will do my best to meet all of those things. I also believe this is my chance to be not just a better crafter, but also a better person.



I will also be sharing this position with this very talented young lady, Maryam Perez! She's truly inspiring. She's someone I would love my daughter to look up to :) And I'm just thrilled to be co-leaders with her on this journey!

You can read more of this awesome news on this CK Blog post.

Also, don't forget to send in your application! The 2018 CK DT CALL has been announced a few days ago. I'm telling you, you wouldn't want to miss this opportunity.

Look forward to more creative inspiration coming your way in the coming days. 
Thanks for dropping by today!

Oh Happy Day - Guest Detective for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration

Hello loves!
Clique Kits is one of the February Sponsors at the CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration challenge blog. I used my January Main and TN kit to create a page based on Case File No. 247





I chose the following as inspiration on my layout:


The graphics and colors just scream summer! So I went for that theme and then incorporated some of the things in the Evidence and Testimony categories.

Evidence - mixed media background, floral patterns, flowers, leaves, birds or other animals

Testimony (journaling ideas) - Topic: Document a summer memory, Add some flowers to your journaling spot (I have a scatter of small journaling texts and added itty bitty fussy cut flowers)

I hope you liked my page and join CSI this month for a chance to win awesome prizes from the sponsors! Deadline is February 28, 2018. Check out their blog for more information.

Happy crafting,

Clique Kits: More Rhapsody Layouts

I have several layouts I haven't shared here yet. All were created using the Clique Kits January "Rhapsody" kit.

My layout for the January Pep Rally/Instagram Share. I had fun with this layout using the January kit. I used an oldie but goodie butterfly cut file and backed them with the 6x6 paper pad from the TN kit as well as scraps from the Main kit.



You can see more of this layout on this blog post on the CK blog.

One of my fave so far. Check it out on the CK blog for more close up images.

Clique Kits: "Rhapsody" Traveler's Notebook Spreads

Hello, loves!
How's January 2018 doing for you so far? I hope well! Well, it has been a meh/blah first week of the year for me since I'm battling an on and off nasty migraine and a cold for a week now. And I've been disinfecting our house especially our room so the little kiddo and the hubby won't catch this virus. I truly hope so! It's hard for adults how much more to children??

Anyways, I have a couple of projects for Clique Kits that I haven't posted yet. Way to start the year! Ha! We'll remedy that next time haha!






Both used the January Main and Traveler's Notebook kits!

Clique Kits: Hey, beautiful

Hello loves!

Merry Christmas!!! OMG, how time flies! I can't believe New Year is just around the corner, wow!
I have planned to cook some dishes for Noche Buena. My very understanding hubby allowed me to do it lol (he is a Muslim convert, for those who doesn't know). Just a few simple dishes so our daughter knows what Noche Buena is and what Christmas celebration is. I have some gifts wrapped up for her to open as well.

Anyways, I also want to share my latest scrapbook layout for Clique Kits up on their blog. I used the January Kit "Rhapsody" and I'm telling you, this is another kit you wouldn't want to miss (I always tell you that, every month.. ha! That GOOD!). So gorgeous, I'm in love again! lol! There are a couple of kits left as of this writing, so hurry up and grab yourself one! Use code DONNA10 for a discount :)

All About Planners: Mommy Lhey October Little Bit Kit

The Mommy Lhey October Little Bit is my first ever subbed planner box and I'm so happy I joined!



I used this in both my craft and personal/home planners.

"Personal Planner"
(Webster's Pages Personal Planner)
This is what I use to keep track of our bills or anything financial-related, anything about our home ie meals, need to buy, to fix etc., and other personal stuff like email addresses, passwords (because I always forget ALL.THE.TIME. so I need to write them down lol), mailing addresses etc.


Of course, I had fussy cut the floral patterns from one of the papers heehee

I used a pencil to measure this one so I can cut the center with the girl in the swing. This is the same paper I fussy cut the florals from.
If I'm not mistaken, these tabs measure around 2 inches and I just fold it in half, round off the edges and voila, instant tab. I had 4 tabs before and just made 3 this time. I simply created dividers inside for the different categories. I just find it easier to do this way instead of having too many tabs lol!

This is how the second tab looks like. 
 and the third/last tab. I simply used a clear tape to protect the tab.
I still used the same inserts, I bought A LOT and I'm not done with them yet lol I used the stamps in the kit and stamped EACH page.. yes, you read that right LMAO! 
"Craft Planner"
(My Prima Planner Breathe A5 Planner)

My go-to, crafty planner. Where everything craft-related is scheduled and some memory-keeping when I feel like it.


 Next week's spread. Before the pen.
I made use of the sticky notes and fussy cut the florals! I just have to they're too pretty and I need more to decorate the pages. It worked!

Now, I'm giddy with excitement to receive the November kit! It's on its way here and eeeekkk! Super excited!

Kaisercraft: Open Road Post Cards

This is the first time I ever made postcards from scratch. It was fun and very easy!


I used thin foam tapes to some of the fussy cut images but basically, everything is flat. I used the Kaisercraft white and kraft cards, cut in half, as a base.

This is the most fun part! I downloaded this postcard image template and printed it at the back of the postcards. I resized and centered the images in Photoshop.

Kaisercraft Products: Open Road Collection – PP1034 Paper Pad | CT896 Collectables | CS317 Clear Stamp | Card Pack  – CD512 Kraft, CD511 White | Kaiser Ink Pads – IP723 Vintage, IP724 Bark
