Thankful, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends! Today I’m sharing a layout that I created using the Hip Kit Club November 2019 moodboard. I am using my October 2019 Hip Kits, and I am still loving all the exclusive products!!!

Here is the moodboard:

I was inspired most by the image on the top right, with the paint brushes and the ombre pink paint. I decided to apply that to my layout. I used 2 pink paint colors from Vicki Boutin, which we recieved in a previous color kit, white gesso, and a slightly damp paint brush. To try to minimize warping, I used some thicker Bazzil white cardstock.

Once the paint was dry, I added the photo, which I backed with an Amy Tangerine pattern paper, and my title.

True to my style, I used a minimal amount of embellishments. I adhered the pumpkin ephemera piece and a cut little fox, both of which are HKC exclusives.

I also added a few of the trees that are in this kit…a few are fussy cut from a Paige Evans pattern paper, and a few are from the HKC exclusive chipboard sticker sheet. I absolutely love the look of these trees! I have been itching to get them on a layout, and I’m glad I finally did!

I love how my layout turned out, and I hope you like it too. Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to check out these Hip Kits!

Happy Tuesday!

Create, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!

Today I’m sharing a layout that I created using the October 2019 Hip Kits. I was challenged to use the main kit along with the cardstock kit only (although I did forget about this while creating my layout), to use punches, and to include stitching.

I scrapped photos of my daughter on picture day, and her monochromatic self portrait that she made at school. I love her cute little drawing, and I love that their assignment was to keep it monochromatic!

I also filmed a process video for my YT channel (junglebarrya):

I started out by cutting the different colored strips from an Amy Tangerine pattern paper. Then I used some old punches from my stash to add a decorative border to each color strip.

On a piece of white cardstock, I used some Shimmerz sprays, which are all from previous Hip Kit Club color kits, to add splatters in a rainbow pattern to coordinate with the pattern papers. Once dry, I adhered the pattern paper strips, and added some machine stitching with coordinating thread colors.

I backed my photos with journaling cards from the Pocket Life kit (here’s where I forgot about the Main Kit only part), and adhered them to the layout with foam squares.

I used some of the HKC exclusive black puffy alpha for my title. I like the bold block style letters.

Next, I decided to add my journaling strips, just to be sure to leave myself room for them. I then embellished with flowers and hearts from the HKC exclusive chipboard sticker sheet. I love all the cute little images! I also embellished with a few puffy stickers (again, which are not part of the main kit).

I really love how my layout turned out. I think the fun colorful strips are fitting for my art photos. Don’t forget to stop by the Hip Kit Club website for all the kit goodies, and I hope you’ll check out my process video.

Happy Saturday!

Baby Shark, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!  I’m sharing a layout that I posted on the Hip Kit Club blog a couple days ago. I created my page using the October 2019 Hip kits.  Today, I am focusing on the Embellishment kit for my Halloween layout. I scrapped this page for Ruby’s album. She was the cutest baby shark last year for Halloween! Love!!!

There are so many goodies in the embellishment kit.  The font on the gold thickers is so pretty, and I love all the Hip Kit Club exclusives.  

I decided to use a cut file to frame my photos.  It’s an October subscriber cutfile called leaf wreath, and I cut it from white cardstock using my silhouette machine.  For my background, I used this gorgeous Pretty Little Studio paper.  The color of this paper is spot on for my photos, and I love the painted vibe.  I added just a little more white splatters, then I lightly adhered the wreath, and machine stitched it through the middle.  

I backed my photos with a few HKC exlcusive PL cards, and added them to the left side of the layout.  Next I added my title.  I used the pretty gold thickers as well as the tiny puffy alpha.

Next, I embellished with some items from the Embellishment kit.  I used some of the floral and leafy ephemera, as well as some of the stickers (I loved all the tiny hearts).  I used the HKC exclusive stamp set to stamp the stitched heart and the “you’re the best” sentiment.  I also added a few enamel dots along the wreath.  

I fussy cut the label from a HKC exclusive PL card, and I used it for my journaling.  To finish off my layout, I added the branding strip from this same paper, and adhered it to the bottom of the layout.  

I absolutely love how my layout turned out, and I hope you do too.  I hope you check out these fabulous kits on the Hip Kit Club website.  Did you see the November kits?

Happy Friday!

3 fall themed cards, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hi friends!

Today I’m sharing 3 cards that I made with the October 2019 Hip Kits. I was challenged to use the sketch and to make at least one Halloween card.

I also filmed a process video for my YT channel (junglebarrya):

For my first card, I wanted to use some of the sweater images in the kits, as well as the “sweater weather” sentiment. I used the HKC exclusive stamp set to stamp the leaf image repeatedly to create my own background, using distress oxide ink in seedless preserves.

I used a HKC exclusive Pocket Life card, layered the 3 sweaters on top, and added the sentiment sticker. I adhered the entire panel to a purple card base that I made using a piece of cardstock from the cardstock kit.

For my next card, I decided to make the Halloween card. Again, I wanted to use a sweater image, and this one has a jack-o-lantern. I trimmed the “trick or treat” sentiment from a Pocket Life card, and I layered the sweater and the sentiment on another PL card.

I adhered the card to a piece of pattern paper from Pretty Little Studio that I trimmed down and added machine stitching to. I adhered it to a purple card base, using the leftover cardstock from the previous card.

For my last card, I remembered that I was supposed to use a sketch for inspiration.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I used another PL card. I stamped the sentiment on it using the HKC exclusive stamp set, then trimmed it to look like a tag. I adhered some florals on top, mostly from the ephemera pack, but there is one sticker and 2 acetate pieces. I used another piece of pattern paper from Pretty Little Studio as my background, and I adhered it to a coral card base that I made using a sheet from the cardstock kit.

I hope you like my cards, and checked out my process video. Don’t forget to check out the Hip Kit Club website for all the kits, and be sure to stop by the Hip Kit Club Group FB page for more info on the sketch.

Happy Sunday!

Cute Little Pumpkin, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!  Today I’m sharing a layout that I created with the September 2019 Hip Kits. I was challenged to use multiple cut files on my layout, so I used 2 Hip Kit Club exclusive cut files.

I’m using this cute little photo of my 3rd daughter on her first Halloween.  When I saw the Cute Little Pumpkin cut file, I knew I had to use it with this photo.  She was only about a week old in the photo, and she’s almost 3 now, so I’m glad to have this scrapped!

I cut the Cute Little Pumpkin cut file, as well as 2 more freestanding pumpkins, and I backed them with a Dear Lizzy pattern paper.

On my background, I used some Vicki Boutin acrylic paint (which was in a color kit many many months ago), and I mixed it with a little bit of white gesso to tone it down, and I did some dry brushing on my cardstock.  I really like how it brings out the texture on the cardstock.  I also added some back and forth machine stitching.

I used a couple of the HKC exclusive PL cards, one to back my photo and another for my journaling.  They were perfect for the warm color scheme I was going for.

I also embellished my layout with a lot of flowers that I fussy cut from Dear Lizzy pattern papers.  I love the sketchy vibes of the florals!  To even further the sketchy details, I used one of the florals from the Dear Lizzy stamp set, and stamped a few flowers with black ink.

I really love how my layout turned out.  Don’t forget to check out the process video for more details.  Make sure to stop by the Hip Kit Club website for the September & October kits!

Friday Nights, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

Today I’ve got a sketch Friday layout to share with you!  In addition to the sketch, I was challenged to add stamping and mixed media, and to share a fall favorite.  I am using the September 2019 Hip Kits for my layout.

ahsang HKC Friday Nights 1

Here is the sketch:

oct 11 sketch

For my fall favorite: Friday nights, high school football games, and marching band.  My daughter’s middle school band got to perform in the stands with the High School marching band at a football game last week.  My husband and I met in marching band, so of course we can’t wait to see our daughter on the field in marching band next year!

For my background, I used white cardstock. I used the Heidi Swapp stencil that came in the color kit and white texture paste to add some textured stars on the background.  Once dry, I used the Lindy’s magical powders to add some ink splatters.  I also used the sketchy star stamps from the HKC exclusive stamp set to stamp some stars on the background.

ahsang HKC Friday Nights 5

Inspired by the sketch, I used layers of Dear Lizzy pattern paper on the top and bottom of the layout.  Next, I added my photo and title.

ahsang HKC Friday Nights 3

To embellish my layout, I stamped and fussy cut a few items, and I diecut some stars from another Dear Lizzy paper.  I wrote my journaling on a Paige Evans diecut card, and added a few stickers and fussy cut elements to finish off my layout.

I really love how it turned out, and I hope you do too.  Don’t forget to stop by the Hip Kit Club GROUP FB page for all the details on the sketch challenge.

This is Halloween mini album, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hi friends!  Today I’m sharing a mini album that I shared on the Hip Kit Club blog the other day.  I made my mini with the September 2019 Hip Kits.  It’s the first week of October, and I’ve got Halloween costumes on my mind…I decided to make an envelope mini album filled with photos of my girls’ costumes through the years.

ahsang HKC Hllwn mini 1

To start my album, I started off by making envelopes with some of the pattern paper in the kits, as well as the blue cardstock from the Cardstock kit.  I wanted my envelopes big enough to use some of the exclusive PL cards as well as embellish, so I decided to make my envelopes 4 x 5 1/2 inches.  I used my We R MK punchboard to make the envelopes.  I didn’t realize it, but I chose a black & white and blue color scheme.  I wanted another paper to match that color scheme, so I made my own using the Dear Lizzy stamp set.  On a piece of white cardstock, I repeatedly stamped the outline floral image with black ink.  Once I filled the page, I randomly stamped the coordinating filler floral image on a few of the flowers with light blue ink.  After I made the envelopes, I put together my album by adhering the flap of one envelope into the inside of another envelope.  I will try to explain it: on your work surface, place one envelope open side up with the flap up, and the another envelope open side down, and then adhere the flap of the side down envelope to the inside of the side up envelope.  I hope that makes sense, LOL!

I loved the way my stamped paper turned out so much, I made it my cover envelope.  I fussy cut one of the journaling cards from a Dear Lizzy paper and used it as a layer on the cover.  I took a piece of vellum and adhered it to the wreath in the Pretty Little Studio ephemera pack.  I decided to add more detail by using the wreath from the Color kit and white texture paste.  I used a few more Pretty Little Studio pieces, like the cute little owl and the alpha stickers.  A few samped images using the HKC exclusive stamp set and some puffy stickers, and my cover is done!

For the next pages, I used a lot of the exclusive PL cards to back my photos and write my journaling.

I used the HKC exclusive stamp set, and embellished with the Pretty Little Studio die cut ephemera, phrase stickers from Dear Lizzy, and puffy stickers from Paige Evans.

To add interest to my mini album, I added lots of textures: I added stitching, puffy stickers, and enamel shapes.  I also added layers and dimension with foam squares.

I really love how the PL cards accentuate my photos.  They are a perfect layering piece!

I had so much fun making this mini album.  I hope you were inspired by my project, and make your own mini album.  Don’t forget to check out the September kits!

Happy Monday!
