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!

Purpose – Hip Kit Club

I am sharing my layout I made for Flowers & Butterflies week on the Hip Kit Club blog!  The theme is right up my alley, I couldn’t resist creating some light airy layered butterflies with the beautiful papers in the February 2018 Hip Kits.  I am also featuring the February 2018 Project Life Hip Kit.  For my background I cut one of the pink triangles from the Pick Me Up paper to ground all my embellishments.  I jazzed up my photo with some of the pretty Pinkfresh Studio labels and a tag!

I love the springy feel the soft papers give the butterflies!

Worth It / Hip Kit Club

Sharing my layout for Mixed Media Monday on the Hip Kit blog using the gorgeous February 2018 Hip Kits. I had a few false starts for this project and ended up trashing a few papers! When you are playing with paint and mist and experimenting, sometimes that can happen! It finally occurred to me to mix the Dylusions spray and the Lemon paint to make a peachy color and then the page took flight from there with the stunning  Pinkfresh Studio Let Your Heart Decide goodies and the Distress Oxide ink! I am happy with the way the page turned out, so if at first, you don’t succeed in mixed media, keep on trying!!

I love the heart paper from Pinkfresh Studio, I used it on multiple layouts this month!

Gorgeous painty puddles!!


Today I am sharing a page I made for the Hip Kit Club Weekly Sketch Challenge! I used the March 2nd Sketch by Tehri for my layout. At first I was going to cut some patterned paper into squares and then I saw the Pinkfresh Studio heart paper and thought I would use that as the big long title on the sketch. I then decided a white background would be lovely and cut a set of squares from white cardstock on my silhouette. I backed with another sheet of white cardstock and stitched around the squares with my sewing machine. I adhered the photo and fussy cut a big long group of hearts. I added a few of the Pinkfresh Studio epoxy hearts, a title from the ephemera pak and a wood sentiment also by Pinkfresh Studio. Such a fun sketch! You can find the sketches in the Hip Kit Club Member Forum in the photo albums it is free to join the facebook group!

I adore the heart paper from Pinkfresh Studio’s Caper Paper from the Let Your Heart Decide Collection.


I am sharing a layout I made featuring the Pinkfresh Studio Mix No 2 Cardstock Stickers found in the January 2018 Project Life Kit. I love the feel and quality of these stickers. I used them as little “pots” for my cut file flowers (found in the February Cut File section on the website) I backed the flowers with papers from the January 2018 main kit and then stitched around them with white floss. I finished off the page with the super cute Pinkfresh Studio Mix No 2 Yellow Puffy Alpha Stickers for my long title.

Stiching up close!


Love the colors in the Pinkfresh Studio Mix No 2


All You Need

I love Mixed Media Monday over on the Hip Kit blog!  I shared this page there yesterday!  We received some super cool Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade in the January 2018 Color Kit.  I decided to paint an extra paper with lovely puddles of paint!  The Distress Oxides blend and oxidize beautifully when you sprinkle water on them!  After the sheet dried I punched as many hearts from the paper as I could, I then layered them down the page over top of random stamping with the sweet Vicki Boutin – All the Good Things Roller Stamp.  To embellish I used SO many flowers from the Exclusive Hip Kit Die Cut pak!  I layered quite a few of the project life cards beneath my photo and also used a PL card for my title!

A cute little epoxy badge from Pinkfresh Studio is the perfect item to top off the layers!

Lovely paint marks!

All the Feels

Sharing a layout I made for the Hip Kit blog using the fantastic January 2018 Hip Kits!  I love the Crate Paper Main Squeeze Ephemera pak from the January 2018 Embellishment Kit.  I also used the Vicki Boutin – All the Good Things Phrase Thickers for my title and a few of the gold hearts!  I was inspired by the black and white heart you see at the top of the layout from Crate Paper, so I painted a bunch of sketchy heart outlines with black paint on white cardstock.  I then splattered Gold Heidi Swapp Colorshine and then fussy cut the hearts out to use as layers.  I used the Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide from the January 2018 Color Kit for my background.  Love the way the Distress Oxide looks when you sprinkle water on it!

It was a pretty simple layout to make but I love how it turned out!

I added a cute little Pinkfresh Studio tassell bow to the heart die cut.


Lovely layers!!


Hello Friends!!  Today I have a layout about my December album!  It was my first year making a DD album and I loved the experience and wanted to scrap about it!  For a fun change I made an 8.5×11 layout!  As soon as I saw the December journal card I chose everything else to coordinate with it!  The super cute On the Edge embellishment by Vicki Boutin from the December 2017 Project Life Hip Kit was the perfect spot to add the daily word using the sweet Pinkfresh Studio The Mix 2 Puffy Aqua Alpha also found in the PL kit!  A few Pinkfresh tags and the awesome puffy sticker “goals” from Crate Paper in the December 2017 Main Hip Kit finish off the page!



Brave Adventure

I LOVE Mixed Media Monday on the Hip Kit Club Blog!  The Color Kits that Kimberly puts together are always fun and colorful and the October 2017 Color Kit is no exception!  This month we received sheets of 12×12 Cold Pressed Watercolor paper and I was super excited to use it!  I used all 3 Shimmerz included in the kit as well, Mango Tango, Lapis Dance and Old Yeller.  I spritzed, painted and puddled the paints multiple times.  To get the bright bold colors I let the layers dry in between so they would intensify.  I added a bit of my Shimmerz Heidi Ho Blue to bring in the brighter blue from my photo!  Once the paper had dried completely I added some vertical machine stitching and some texture paste through a stencil.  I used the gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary Ephemera from the Oct. 2017 Main Hip Kit and the Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary Studio Puffs from the Oct. 2017 Embellishment Kit to decorate the page!

The Pinkfresh butterflies are gorgeous with their gold wings!  I love that the ephemera goes so beautifully with a mixed media layout as well as a clean layout!

All the color!!

Pretty Cards

I have to tell you up front that I wouldn’t put card making in my skill repertoire, but that may have changed for me after I made these 3 pretty little cards using the gorgeous October Hip Kits!  I decided to go for small and sweet and started out with card bases that measure 3×4 after they are folded.

For the first card I used the Bazzill TuTu Pink Cardstock for the base and layered a PL Card with teeny tiny dots then two tags I cut from Pinkfresh Studio papers and the cherry on top is a fussy cut rose from the Pebbles Jen Hadfield Heart of Home paper.  I tucked in a cut file leaf and a fabric embellishment from Pinkfresh Studio that say On My Heart.  I love this card!!

For the second card I paired the Bazzill Whirlpool Card Stock from the Oct. 2017 Cardstock Kit with a gorgeous golden PL card with tiny flowers.  I added a Pinkfresh Studio tag a Pursue Magic die cut and punched butterflies out of the Pinkfresh Studio papers all from the Oct. 2017 Main Kit.

For the third card I used the bold plaid designed by Kimberly Hutchinson that is found in the Oct. 2017 Main Kit and the exclusive PL card found in the Oct. 2017 PL Kit I thought it would be pretty to focus on the pretty delicate leaves in the PL card so I added one of the Hip Kit exclusive wood veneer leaves, a cut file leaf and a puffy sticker leaf from Pinkfresh Studio!  For the focal point I used a Pinkfresh tag and die cut!
