Today's post is all about how to use those awesome journal cards that come with the monthly Clique Kits. I am not a Project Life scrapper. My kids are adults now and I don't lead an exciting enough life to do weekly PL layouts. I do however, LOVE to use those journal cards on my handmade cards. This month, not only were there exclusive Clique Kit journal cards, but also a sheet of journal cards/pattern paper from the Cocoa Vanilla Hello Lovely collection. Cards are always the last thing I create with my monthly kits too. I have scraps to play with and don't have to worry about cutting a 12x12 sheet of paper only to regret later not having the full sheet for a scrapbook layout. Take a look at the cards I created ...
"Think Happy Thoughts" makes for the perfect card sentiment. I can use this for a birthday or as an encouragement card. That heart washi tape just might still be in the Clique Store. Use coupon code Marcia10 to save 10%.
I've been eyeballing this "hello" on the Hello Lovely journal sheet knowing it was perfect for a card sentiment.
Here is a tip for adhering those sequins.... use a small glue dot. I love my Imaginisce Pogo for applying my glue dots. the Pogo is much like a reinking stamp. Just press it down where you want your glue dot and place sequin on top.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to join us for our September challenge. There is still plenty of time. Have a great week.
