NEW SKETCH 11-1-15

It's that time again girls.... NEW SKETCH! :)

So here we go... here is another great sketch by Mich


and our incredible sponsors

Clique Kits is a relatively NEW scrapbook kit club founded in April 2014. Gia, Jody, Erica and Lacey were a group of friends who were looking for a new outlet in the scrapbook industry after Memory Works closed their doors. As consultants with Memory Works who served on the design team or as a guest designer, they knew that they would miss the daily interactions they enjoed with like minded paper crafters on the Memory Works forum. Observing losses of numerous pillars of the scrapbooking world both online and in brick and mortar, led us to believe that other scrapbookers would welcome a chance to continue to pursue their hobby if there was a way to acquire a variety of new, trendy products conveniently and economically! As a result of much brainstorming (still ongoing) with a focus on less consumerism, more sharing, supporting others in creative small businesses and preserving not just our memories but our planet for the next generation, Clique Kits was born!

Currently, Clique Kits spans from Europe to Australia and across the USA and has grown into this business from 'our basements'. The name Clique Kits is a play on the word 'Click' for the sound our cameras make recording memories, and is also a tongue in cheek metaphor for our ever-widening circle of friends who are anything BUT clique-y. This outlet lets us share our passion for memory keeping through our kits, blog and social media community and is always friendly and supportive. Together with our design team, we strive to inspire our members and friends with tutorials, creative inspiration, articles, videos, inspirational blog shares, and much more! In our first year we have quadrupled our membership and sold hundreds of limited edition kits in addition to our often unique school store products sourced from the indie, handmade and fair trade markets. We now have over 4000 Facebook fans and our interactive community online continues growing. We welcome you to contact us with questions or feedback at anytime!

And now on to our incredible inspiration from our Design Team:

How is that for some inspiration!!! As always great work girls!!!

We hope to see you all playing along with us...
