Sweet Summer – Hip Kit Club

Sharing a sweet summer layout featuring the July 2018 Hip Kits! I was super excited to see the acrylic popsicles and ice cream cones that Kimberly designed!

So genius with the little wood veneer sticks! Love them and had to feature them on a page! I really wanted to make a fresh and light page.

I chose the July 2018 Project Life card with the summer balloons as my jumping off point and scattered popsicles up and down the page. Little acrylic ice cream colored hearts and star stickers were the perfect finishing touch!

Sunkissed – Hip Kit Club

Sharing a layout I made using the fabulous July 2018 Hip Kits! The July kits are packed with exclusive designs and couldn’t be more fun to use!

I had the pretty August moodboard to use as a jumping off point for my layout and I was immediately inspired by the rays in the bottom corner. I used the Sunshine watercolor to paint rays and then stitched on top of them. The rays were the perfect spot for the exclusive acrylic stars, so I scattered them amongst the rays!

I picked a photo from a trip to Palm Springs this year and used the super cute chipboard from Simple Stories I used 3 cards from the July 2018 Project Life Kit for journaling and to embellish around my photo.

Thanks so much for having a look at my page!! Check out the August Hip Kit Moodboard for inspiration!

Summer Watercolor Leaves – Hip Kit Club

The July 2018 Hip Kit Color Kit has the new Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolors and they are amazing!

I started out by adding gesso to white cardstock, I also added some texture paste through a circle stencil. I then mixed Sunshine and Sky Blue together to make a pretty green and used packaging to smush it onto the page, I added plenty of splashes and let the colors run together.  There was no need to keep it tidy since I knew I would be cutting it up!

Once my paper was dry I used by Big Kick and die cut some leaves in different shapes and sizes.  I used a stylus to add some lines and texture to the leaves.  For the background to my layout I added some Mango Tango Shimmerz (Oct 2017 Color Kit) with packaging.

Time to put my layout together!  I cut a large tag from a card in the July 2018 Project Life kit and stacked up some other cards as well.  I arranged and glued the leaves and then embellished the area with the Simple Stories chipboard found in the July 2018 Embellishment kit.

Shaker Heart – Hip Kit Club

My assignment this week was to add a shaker pocket onto a layout!  So many cute possibilities with the June 2018 Hip Kits!  I decided to make a simple heart shaker and cut a heart outline and a full heart on my silhouette.  I added a piece of acetate to the heart outline back and think strips of foam to raise it up.  I added sequins inside the heart outline back and then glued the full heart to that!  Instant shaker pocket!

Next I added paints from the June 2018 Color kit to a white background.  I love how shimmery the pale pink and peach are!

I adore the Illustrated Faith bird paper and decided to feature it with a grid design beneath my shaker and photo.  A few Pinkfresh Studio embellishments finished off the page!

Sweet Time – Hip Kit Club

I am happy to be sharing a layout I made for Mixed Media Monday at the Hip Kit Club!! My assignment was to use the June 2018 color kit, stitching and cut files so off I went!

I cut one of the background files by Kim Watson (June) and used it as a stencil to mist the background with the pretty blue Shimmerz spray. I then added both other Shimmerz paints for loads of sparkle and splatters!

I layered and layered all the pretty papers and embellishments from our Pinkfresh Studio goodies in the June kits! I love how my page turned out!! You might want to consider using a cut file as a stencil, it creates a unique look to your background!!

Sunkissed TN – Hip Kit Club

This week at the Hip Kit Club my assignment was to only use the main kit from June 2018!  The kits are packed full of goodies so it definitely makes it easy!  I decided to make a spread in my scrappy Traveler’s Notebook!

I decided to go with a grid design and chose 2-3 colors to work with, when there are so many choices I find that choosing a scheme up front helps me get something made!  I focused on the warm tones from the Pinkfresh Studio Simple and Sweet collection.  I added the Vicki Boutin stamp from the June 2018 Color Kit to the Pinkfresh frame.  Love this stamp set!!

I did dip into the June 2018 Project Life kit for two of the cards, I couldn’t resist the sun card and sweet floral print.  The cards are great in TN for their small size patterns.

Keep Shining – Hip Kit Club

YAY for Hip Kit Club sketch day! I had such fun playing with the sketch this week and the June 2018 Hip Kits! I was intent on using more papers this month and this sketch really leaned toward that goal. I cut strips of papers and cut scallops with my silhouette. The Pinkfresh Studio cut apart paper made the layout for me! I tucked in coordinating colors and embellished with Pinkfresh Studio Sweet and Simple enamel circles and chipboard. Be sure to check out the sketch this week, it’s definitely got a lot of possibilities!!


This little vase of wildflowers is one of my favorite pieces!!  I also snipped the layered sentiment off of one of the frames and added it to my photo.

Loads of lovely layers!!

Hello Glasses – Hip Kit Club

My assignment this week was to use mixed media + a cut file.  Two of my favorite things!  I chose the super fun glasses in one of the May 2018 Cut Files and made it bigger before I cut it. I got out the May 2018 Color Kit featuring the Vicki Boutin stamps and paints and got busy!

I did simple swipes of 3 colors of paint with a big brush and let the background dry.  I love that the paint marks show, definitely adds lots of texture!  While the paint was drying, I stamped circles from the stamp set.  I used round punches to punch out the circles and realized I loved the papers that were left over, so I kept those to use on my layout.

I painted the glasses with black paint and then backed the “lenses” with vellum.  Super cute how the layers below still show through the glasses!  I layered my punched circles with messy black thread and then started to adhere everything to the background.

I mixed in a few items from the Simple Stories chipboard sheet and added a few yellow enamel dots and called it done!

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!
