Found Myself – Hip Kit Club

Hello!  I am sharing a layout today that was made by just playing with all the gorgeous products in the March 2018 Hip Kits!  I didn’t have any specific assignment which was super fun!  I picked out most of the goodies from the Embellishment Pak and used them for my color scheme.

I piled up loads of Crate Paper ephemera and Pinkfresh Studio frames around my photo.

I love how the mixed media shows through the Pinkfresh Studio Be You frames!

I added some white paint and Vicki Boutin Irridescent glaze to the Pebbles Thickers to change the color!

HRM – Hip Kit Club

This week at the Hip Kit Club we are playing along with a mood board that Jill Sprott created!  I also had the assignment to have “fun with alphas” for my layout.  This is the first time I have used a mood board to make a layout, to begin with I was taking it VERY literally and ending up with backgrounds that didn’t go with anything in the kit, once I decided to use a more general inspiration approach it went better for me!  I loved using a mood board and definitely want to put more practice into it!

I decided to run with the circles all over the mood board and used a  big doily I had sitting around.  I used any and all alphas I could find in the March 2018 Hip Kits, I even used letters from the Pebbles Thickers Phrases to spell out the words around my circle.

I used the Simple Stories I Am chipboard to embellish around my photo and in between the words around the circle.  I love the colors in this pak!

Driving – Paige Evans + Silhouette

I have been wanting to make a layout with one of Paige’s cut files with the design of the cut file layered on top for awhile!  Not sure if it was luck or beginner skill in the silhouette software but I figured out how to extract one of the pretty flowers from the Geometric Flower Circle and cut it seperatly!  I cut the flower circle and 9 flowers from white card stock to get started!

I used the multi colour jewel paper from the Take Me Away 12×12 Paper pad to back the circle.  I love how the colours in the paper give variation to the flowers in the circle without having to back each of them individually!  I made sure that the yellow in the paper was set to the top right of the page to enhance the sunshine in the photo!

I do love a circle design and for me it is a great opportunity to get my Thickers out for a big long title!  I used alphas from Take Me Away, Fancy Free, Turn the Page and Pick Me Up.  They coordinate beautifully together and look so interesting!  I chose a few spots for the white flowers and added co-ordinating coloured buttons to the centre of the flowers.  A few puffy stickers, rub ons and chipboard hearts from Pick Me Up provided cute little details!

Sweet and Simple – Hip Kit Club

Hello!  Today I am sharing a layout using the March Hip Kits!  Being a new scrapbooker I don’t have a history with rub-ons.  There has been lot’s of buzz about how excited people are to have them showing up in collections again!  I took the opportunity with this layout to give them a good workout!  The 1Canoe2 gold foil rub-ons came in the March 2018 Project Life Kit and they are gorgeous!

Before I used the rub-ons I laid out almost all of my design.  I knew there were no second chances and wanted to be sure of the placement.  I took a photo so I would know where everything went and then started adding the rub-ons!  They worked beautifully and they are so shiny!  I added the bigger rub-ons in a vertical strip and then scattered some of the little fireflies around the center design.

I scattered some beautiful embellishments with the rub-ons above and below my photo cluster!  Some gold splatters finished off the page, I love how it turned out!
