Sweet Girl – Hip Kit Club

My assignment this week for the Hip Kit Club was to make a large title. I cut my words on a 12×12 piece of cardstock on my silhouette. I backed it with the gorgeous lavender cardstock from the cardstock kit and then stitched around the title. I embellished with loads of fussy cut flowers from the exclusive Hip Kit Club paper found in the main kit! Love the colors!

I sprinkled some enamel dots and added a few die cut pieces from the Amy Tangerine pack to finish off the page!

I LOVE a big title, give it a try on your page!

Adventure – Hip Kit Club

Today I have a layout that features 5 of my favorite products from the May 2018 Hip Kits! I chose the Crate Paper Wild Heart Glitter Phrase stickers, Heidi Swapp paper, Vicki Boutin Paint, Simple Stories Good Vibes chipboard and the Echo Park Enamel Dots!

I painted on my background with a large brush and then I decided to “string” the glitter leaves like they were feathers along with the Simple Stories chipboard feathers. I added a die cut title and some die cut leaves. All the products I used came from the May 2018 Main and Embellishment Kit!

It was fun to choose 5 items and make a page, I recommend giving it a try if you are looking for some inspiration!

Like A Rainbow – Hip Kit Club

Today I am sharing a layout I made using the May 2018 Hip Kits! My assignment was to use the gorgeous June Moodboard by Irit and the Pick Me Up alphabet stamps! I was drawn by the rainbows in the moodboard and used the Vicki Boutin paints in the May 2018 Color Kit to make my rainbow! I painted it on white cardstock and added messy black stitching and then popped it up on a white background with black splatters.

The super cute chipboard from Simple Stories and a rosette from Crate Paper finished it off! Be sure to check out the June Moodboard and get your stamps out!

Your Mom – Hip Kit Club

My assignment this week was to incorporate colored cardstock into my layout.  Not going to lie, I rarely use colored cardstock, not because I don’t like it,  I think it is because there are so many “pretty” bits in our kits that I really just overlook it.  So this week I got out all the pretty colored cardstock from the April 2018 Cardstock Kit and put my thinking cap on!
I had all the papers lined up on my desk in rainbow order and then I found the co-ordinating patterned papers from the April 2018 Kits and decided to grab my punches and make a heart out of punched pieces.

I cut a heart to use as a template on my silhouette and then fit all my punched papers into the heart like a puzzle, once I had them positioned I glued each of the pieces down.  As I started looking for embellishments I realized there were so many cute little items that would work on the heart.  I used almost all of the Shimelle Enamel Dots found in the April 2018 Project Life Kit and a lot of the dots from the Hip Kit Club exclusive puffy stickers!

I finished off the page with a pretty title using the Hip Kit Club exclusive white puffy alpha, my photo and a floral cluster!

No Excuses – Hip Kit Club

Hello!! I am sharing a layout featuring A Case of the Blahs by Pinkfresh Studio. Everything I used can be found in the April 2018 Hip Kits!! My assignment for this layout was fussy cutting and layering. I fussy cut the scallops from the Pinkfresh Studio “Flawsome” paper and layered them up with some white scallops and loads of messy stitching with black thread. I added black paint to the background so the scallops would pop! I found it so easy to embellish with the super fun sayings, frames, and ephemera!

Close up!!

Always Be You – Hip Kit Club

The sky is the limit with the Vicki Boutin Watercolor set in the March 2018 Color Kit!  I started off my back ground by apply the Vicki Boutin Irridescent Glaze through a circle stencil and letting it dry.  I then mixed up colors to match the butterflies on the 6×4 card that I fussy cut from the March 2018 Project Life Kit.

I fussy cut quite a few flowers from the Dear Lizzy Paper included in the March 2018  Main Kit & Paper Kit.

I love how the watercolors mix and blend to make so many new colors!  The little puddles that form around the glaze are my favorite areas!

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!

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!


Beautiful Butterflies – Hip Kit Club

I certainly have been dreaming of spring lately and the February 2018 Hip Kits go right along with that dream!  The colors are fresh and delightul.  I used one of the exclusive cut files of the butterflies and bugs.  I cut out only the butterflys and then I fussy cut a load of butterflies from the Crate Paper buttefly paper.  I used 3 standout butterflys from Crate Paper Flourish Standouts found in the February 2018 Hip Kit Embellishment Pak.  I layered the fussy cut and die cut butterflies around a circle and tucked my photo in on the right side.  I added the love chipboard from Pick Me Up for the finishing touch!
