Fancy, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

Today I have a layout to share with you, using Hip Kit Club February 2018 kits.  Last week’s theme was Flowers & Butterflies, and here is my take on the theme.

This photo was taken for last year’s book character day at my daughter’s school.  My daughters love the book “Fancy Nancy,” and we had all the items she needed to pull off Fancy Nancy already, so it was a win win!

I used a bunch of Distress Oxide inks from previous color kits, which you can find here, here, and here, to create a rainbow background on a piece of white cardstock.  I used one of the Hip Kit Club March cut files; this one is bugs designed by Jana.  I chose 2 butterflies from the cut file, copied them in different sizes, and arranged them in a diagonal across my project.  I cut it using my silhouette on another piece of white cardstock.

Then I used a few pieces from the February 2018 Main Kit, Project Life Kit, and the Embellishment Kit to complete my layout.  I love the Amy Tangerine gold glitter thickers, and I also love the rub-ons from Paige Evans.  (I used to LOVE rub-ons, especially alphabet rub-ons, so it’s fun to see them coming back!)

That’s it for me!  I really love the way my layout turned out, I hope you do too!

Happy Tuesday!


Ready. Set. Go, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

I have a fun layout to share with you using the September 2017 Hip Kits.  On Wednesday, Felicity, Corrie, and I were challenged to use the Pink Paislee/ Paige Evans page 01 cut apart sheet and Amy Tangerine felt bows, both found in the Main Kit.  You can check out all of our projects on the Hip Kit club blog here.

I started by cutting the paper apart into the 4×6 and 3×4 cards.  I also fussy cut the flags, some flowers, and paper planes from some of those cards.

I decided I wanted some mixed media on my page.  I used some Tim Holtz distress oxide in worn lipstick to watercolor on top of white cardstock.  I also used some Heidi Swapp gold color shine and the Ruby Shimmerz from the September color kit to add some ink splatters.

I wanted your eye to be drawn up towards the mixed media, so I centered my cards and picture toward the upper half of the layout.  I’m also a fan of white/negative space, so I like how all the interest is at the top, followed by a title, journaling, and a few embellishments at the bottom.

I absolutely love Paige Evans’ Turn the Page collection…it was perfect to document this milestone.  My daughter started middle school this year, and this is her at her first locker, with her new schedule in hand.  Gah, where does the time go?!  “The Best is yet to come,” “there is MAGIC up ahead,”  “the future is bright…” all perfect, am I right?!

I am so in love with the Hip Kit Club exclusive gold alpha for my title, and the felt bows are too cute!

I love how my layout turned out, and I hope I have inspired you to get crafty!  If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend you check out the Hip Kit Club shop!

Happy Friday friends!

80s, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hello friends!

Today, I’m here with a layout on the Scrapbook Circle blog using the March Happy Place kit.  Today, I’m taking part in the Take 2 challenge, where I take a layout from another DT member, and re-create it.  Hop on over to the SC blog to see who I was inspired by!

My husband and I recently went to a 1980s theme birthday party, and we dressed for the occasion!  LOL, don’t we look fab?!!!


Here’s a closer look at my crimped hair and barbie makeup (and baby smiles!).  Hehe!


Have a super Monday friends!

Hi friends!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!

My birthday is tomorrow, and for an early birthday present, I got a silhouette Cameo 3, and I’m super excited!  I’ve got a lot of learning to do, but don’t be surprised if I use a lot of cut files this month, LOL!

Today, I’m sharing a layout on the Scrapbook Circle blog using the March Happy Place kit, and the March Good Stuff add-on.  I am also using the Heart is Full background cut file from Just Nick Studio.


I hope you stop on over to the SC blog for more photos!

Happy Sunday friends!

Today layout, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey guys!  Today, I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a layout documenting our trip to Inner Space Caverns using the October The Weekender kit.


Recently, my younger daughter was looking through an older scrapbook album, and came across a layout I did of the last time we went to Inner Space caverns 6 years ago.  She sadly pointed at the picture, and said “Where am I?”  I pointed at the baby carrier strapped to my husband, and you can see a tiny bit of her legs poking out.  I told her we went there when she was a baby.


Here’s a quick iPhone shot of the layout:


Since then, she has been begging to go to the cave.  We finally took a trip out there, and of course I bought the over-priced, low quality souvenir photo.  I’m so glad I did though, since they told us to avoid flash photography (because of the bats), and I didn’t get any good photos.

This is why I love scrapbooking.  I’m sure the next baby girl will come across the new layout and wonder where she is.  Then, I’ll point to my belly in the picture and say that she was growing in my tummy.

Happy Saturday y’all!
