Beautiful Eight, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

Who has tried fringe details on a layout?
This week, I was challenged to make a project with fringe. I’m working with the June 2018 Hip Kit Club Main kit, Project Live kit, Embellishment kit, and Color kit.

I made a layout about my middle girl turning 8.  I’ve always thought that this was the age when you started growing up.  My girl has done a lot of growing up, but I love that she still has a lot of “little” left in her.

I made fringe by cutting 1.25 inch strips of the Bella Blvd floral paper and plain white copy paper. I hand cut slits in the paper, leaving about 1/4 inch at the top. I glued down the tops of the fringe paper onto scrap pieces of paper, starting from the bottom and layering each strip on top.

Using my silhouette, I cut out a few circles in various sizes across the pink cardstock.  I added some Shimmerz paint splatter to the cardstock.  Once dry, I added the hand stitching around the 3 big circles.   Then I backed these circles with the fringe paper, and other scraps of pattern paper.  I added some more machine stitching and hand stitching around the rest of the circles.

I added the photos, title, journaling.  Then I added all the fun embellishments to finish off my layout.

I really love how this project turned out, and I hope you give handmade fringe a try!

If you’re interested, I used fringe on another layout, which you can read about in this post, and funnily enough, it was a layout about my girl turning seven.

Happy Wednesday friends!

Learn new things everyday, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey guys!

Today, I’m sharing a layout I made for the Hip Kit Club Facebook page on Wednesday.  I used the June 2018 Hip kits.  This week we got to choose our own theme or product to focus on, and I chose the Pretty Little Studio journaling tags found in the Embellishment kit.  I thought they would be perfect to use on a school layout.

This is Ellie’s yearbook picture from the 1st grade.  (She will be going to 3rd grade, so I’m behind…ha!)

I started out by splattering color across the page with a couple Shimmerz from the June Color kit and Vicki Boutin paints that we got in last month’s color kit.  Once dry, I arranged the tags on the cardstock.  I filled in the tag with handwritten journaling, some Pretty Little Studio phrase stickers, and some stamps that we got in previous kits.

I added my title using the green Pinkfresh Studio alpha stickers.  Then I machine stitched through the title and tags using colorful thread.  I added my photo, and some flowers around the photo.

I added the Bella Blvd floral paper at the bottom, and I also fussy cut a few flowers and adhered it to the top right and bottom left of the layout.

I am really happy with how my layout turned out!

I used the June 2018 Main kit, Project Life kit, Embellishment kit, Color kit, and the white cardstock from the Cardstock kit.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday!

Zoo, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey there crafty peeps!

Today I have a layout on the Scrapbook Circle blog created using the July Smile More kit.  The alpha is from the July Laugh More add-on.

I finally got around to scrapbooking the zoo trip we took several years ago to our favorite zoo in Waco, TX, the Cameron Park Zoo.  I’m happy to have it done, and ready to go in the album!

The Perfect Day bear sticker is a Shimelle sticker which came in one of the past kits, but I just couldn’t help but put it on this layout…it’s perfect!
