December Daily, days 17 & 20

Hello friends!

Today, I’m sharing days 17 & 20 of my December Daily album.  I am still chugging along…how about y’all?  I am going to be using the Hip Kit Club 2018 December Documented kit, as well as the 2018 December Main kit.

For day 17, I documented our elf Stewart in his new outfit that we bought him.  I decided to use the packaging to make a pocket page to house all the notes to and from him.

I cut out a piece of the packaging to make the front part of the pocket.  For the back part of the pocket, I used one of the HKC exclusive pattern papers.  I really love both sides of this paper, so it’s perfect.  The side that faces the pocket is a red & white plaid.  On the back of the paper is a red & white whimsical, folk design, which is also perfect for an elf story.  I die cut a tag from another piece of HKC exclusive paper, the navy blue one with a white dot pattern, and I also cut out a few pieces from the Pinkfresh Studio paper. I die cut a circle from the number 17 on the Pebbles advent calendar, which I’ve been doing throughout my album, and I tied them all together with a piece of twine, and adhered it to the back of the pocket page.

For day 20, I did an around the house spread.  I used the 2×2 pocket page, and the 4 3×4 page.

For the left, I printed out some photos from around my house to about 2×2 inches.  I filled the rest of the pockets with puffy stickers, the Pebbles number, a sequin star, and I even made a small shaker pocket.  (I used a couple of transparencies that I had in my stash to adhere some of the embellishments to, like the stockings and number.)  On the right side, I printed out the wreaths I have, and I left a spot for journaling.  I made my own card by typing my journaling on white cardstock, and adhering some of the HKC exclusive pattern paper (this paper is my FAVE!).  My journaling says: “I have loved decorating our new home! It’s so fun pulling out all of my collected items, but super fun buying new things as well!”

That’s it for now!  I hope you like my December Daily pages so far.  I am still loving this project!  I’m hoping to have this album done before the new year, but I’m not in a rush.  When I’m done, I’ll have a flip through video on my YT channel, so keep an eye out for that.

Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to check out these kits.  There are some awesome HKC exclusives!!!

Happy Sunday!

December Daily, days 12-14, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

Today, I’m sharing my days 12-14 of my December Daily album, and I used the 2018 December Documented Hip Kit.  I did sneak in a couple pieces from the 2018 December Hip Kits: a piece of HKC exclusive pattern paper from the Main kit, and one HKC exclusive project life card from the Project Life kit.

I also did a YouTube process video if you’re interested!

 

For day 12, I wanted to document the few movies we watch every single year.  We watch other holiday movies as well, but the ones we watch every year are Elf, Home Alone, Home Alone 2, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Mickey’s Christmas Carol, and Little Women.

ahsang HKC DD12-14 1

The pattern paper is the one from the December Hip Kit.  I also used a filmstrip cut file that I found on the Silhouette store.  I love how the Elf photo, with my hand written journaling, on the left turned out!  On the empty spots on the film strip, I added my number (the Pebbles ones that I’ve been using throughout the album), and a red car puffy sticker.  I love the size of the Crate Paper puffy stickers…they are the perfect size for this project!

For day 13, I documented my JOY for getting my engagement and wedding rings back from getting them resized.  I hadn’t been able to wear them for almost 2 years now; I was waiting to loose the “baby weight,” but I got tired of waiting, haha!

ahsang HKC DD12-14 2

I was challenged to use some HKC exclusive cut files, so I used this subscriber cut file designed by fellow DT member Jana.  The JOY wood veneer stickers are from Pinkfresh studio.

ahsang HKC DD12-14 5

Day 14’s story is about the new ornaments I bought this year.  I always buy a couple ornaments every year, but I bought a little more this year since we got a taller tree.

ahsang HKC DD12-14 3

The red striped paper is the Project Life card from the December kit.  The numbered 3×4 card turned out to be perfect, since I had 7 different ornaments.  I stamped the numbers on the photo using some old wood/rubber stamps that I picked up in the Target dollar spot years ago.

ahsang HKC DD12-14 6

I usually work on a couple days in a row, then take a break, then work on a few more days.  How about you guys?  Are you creating every day?

I really love how my December Daily album is coming along, and I hope you do too!

Happy Wednesday!

December Daily, days 5 & 8, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello everyone!  I hope your December is going joyfully so far.  Today, I’m sharing a couple more pages of my December Daily album.  I am using the HKC 2018 December Documented kit for these pages.

Day 5 is all about our new tree.  Our old tree was looking a little raggedy, so we got a new one for our new house.  We also started a new tradition, and we put up our tree before Thanksgiving, but only lit and bare.  That way, we get to relax after fluffing the tree, which is a job in and of itself, and we get to enjoy the twinkling lights.

ahsang HKC DD5&8 1

On the left, I used the tree pattern paper by My Mind’s Eye, an exclusive HKC journaling card (love when they have lines), and a Pinkfresh Studio chipboard banner.

ahsang HKC DD5&8 4

I used the tree cut file that I made previously when I made my cover album.  (It was a free cut file for day 1 of HKC’s 12 days of giving.)  I adhered it to a transparency I had in my stash, and on the other side, I backed it with pattern paper.

ahsang HKC DD5&8 2

The number 5 is a sticker from the Crate Paper sticker sheet (It was part of the 25).  I love how clean these simple & full pages look!  They really make a statement!

ahsang HKC DD5&8 5ahsang HKC DD5&8 6

Day 8 is about my youngest getting a “pop” after both her sisters left for their friends’ house.  She was so upset, I needed to cheer her up.  Needless to say, she loved it!  Haha!

ahsang HKC DD5&8 3

On the left, I printed a big photo, and turned it into a tag.  I added the number, which is die cut from the Pebbles 12×12 advent sheet, a pink Crate Paper sticker, and a Pinkfresh Studio enamel dot.  I also used the thickers to spell out the word Pop!  (Love the font on these!)

ahsang HKC DD5&8 8

On the right, I have 3 more photos, and I added a couple stickers to my favorite photo.  I used one of the exclusive journaling cards, and I hand wrote “her smile” at the top, then added my journaling with my computer and printer.

ahsang HKC DD5&8 7

That’s it for me today…I really love how this project is going.  I look forward to December Daily every year, and this year is no different!

Don’t forget to look through my December Daily category and tag if you’re looking for more inspiration!

Happy Sunday!

December Daily 2018, days 2-4, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!  I am so excited to be sharing some December Daily pages with you!  I am sharing days 2-4 of my 2018 album, and for these days, I’m using the Hip Kit Club 2018 December Documented kit.

I also have a YouTube process video, if you’re interested!

 

For day 2, my story is about our family hike.  The weather was so beautiful, we had to take advantage and go outside!

ahsang HKC DD2-4 1

The number 2 is a cutfile called Scandinavian numbers from the Hip Kit Club 12 days of Giving, which you can get for free from the Hip Kit Club website, as long as you have an account.  I hand wrote a quote that I found on pinterest, and it says “of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt” by John Muir.  The Merry Happy card is an HKC exclusive from the DD kit.

ahsang HKC DD2-4 4

For day 3, my story is about the lights on the house.  It’s our first Christmas in the new house, and my husband was a bit hesitant to put the lights up, since our roof line is steeper and higher than our old house.  He got it done though, and I love it!

ahsang HKC DD2-4 2

Another thing about this story, is my genius purchase of the holiday season.  I bought an outdoor club that’s remote operated.  Now, we don’t have to step outside before going to bed to unplug the lights!  Love it!  I’m going to go get the indoor version for our Christmas tree!  Ha!

ahsang HKC DD2-4 5

For Day 4, the story is: letters to Santa.  We always go to visit Santa early to avoid the lines, but I document the day that the girls write their letters.  This year, I wanted the letters to Santa to be more individualized and personal.  I asked my older daughter to write her letter to Santa on her phone in the Notes app, then screenshot and text it to me.  My middle daughter wrote a classic letter with pictures.  I just had my 2 year old scribble on a pre-made card.

ahsang HKC DD2-4 3

I wanted a more interactive album this year, so I created a pocket page to house the Santa letters.  The front of the pocket is a photo that I made in photoshop of the 3 girls writing their letters.  I absolutely LOVE the way the letters and this spread turned out!

I hope you like what I created, and if you’re interested in more December Daily posts from me, just click on the December Daily tag or category on my blog post!

Then & Now, featuring Hip Kit Club, and a YT process video

Hi friends!

Today, I’m sharing a layout with you featuring Hip Kit Club August 2018 kits.  I am using the Main kit, Project Life kit, and Embellishment kit.

I am scrapping a Then & Now page of my youngest in her Dock A Tot, and her Dock A Tot grande.  Time is just flying by with this one…she is getting so big already!  *Sad face

ahsang HKC then&now 2

Also, I’m so excited to share that I have my very first ever YouTube process video!

 

I’ve done layout like this before where I puzzle piece together embellishments on a layout.  There’s really no layering or mixed media.  I love how clean and simple it looks, yet graphic it looks as well.

ahsang HKC then&now 3ahsang HKC then&now 5

If you watch the video, you’ll see that it’s mostly just me pushing embellishments around until I like how things look.  Also, since I’m going for a graphic look, I want things to line up and be as straight as possible.

I hope you like my layout and my process video!

Just dance, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!  I hope you’re having a fantastic day.  Today I have a layout featuring the August 2018 Hip Kit Club kits.

ahsang HKC justdance 1

I wanted to scrap these photos of my daughter’s 6th grade dance show.  Once of her costumes is goldish yellow, and the school colors are green and gold, so I started off looking for embellishments in that color.  Luckily, these kits had a good amount of mustard yellow, and different shades of green.  I also love all the girlie details in the new Maggie Holmes line!

ahsang HKC justdance 3

I’ve got a variety of techniques on my project…

fussy cutting and ink splatters:

ahsang HKC justdance 2

stamping and layering:

ahsang HKC justdance 5

…as well as punching and machine stitching.  I added my title and hand written journaling to finish off my layout.

ahsang HKC justdance 4

I am in love with the August 2018 Hip Kits!  I ended up using bits and pieces from the Main Kit, Project Life Kit, Embellishment Kit, and Color Kit.

I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty!

Happy Friday!  TGIF!

Third grade, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey there crafty friends!  Today I’m sharing a back-to-school layout using the August 2018 Hip kits.

ahsang HKC 3rd gr 1
I love documenting my daughters’ first few days of school.  I like to see how they grow and their styles change.  It’s been a tradition of mine to keep some of their clothing tags, and work them into the first week of school layout.  For this layout, I used a heart punch to create little embellishments.
I did a bit of fussy cutting for this project…some of the papers in this month’s kit are perfect for fussy cutting, and I am just loving the new Maggie Holmes line!  I love the colors and all the cute little embellishments.

ahsang HKC 3rd gr 3ahsang HKC 3rd gr 4
I also used the stencil that we got in this month’s color kit, and some embossing paste along with the Shimmerz colorings mist to create a subtle layer behind my photos.  I love the almost tone-on-tone texture it creates.

ahsang HKC 3rd gr 2

I focused the photos and most of the embellishments and details on the mid-right side of my page.  I really like how your eye is drawn straight to the photos.

I added a little bit of pattern paper detail on the bottom left and upper right side of my page, a la Missy Whidden.  Then, I added in some of the sticker flowers, and called my layout done!

I love how my layout turned out, and I hope I’ve inspired you in some way. I used the August 2018 Main kit, Color kit, and Project Life kit.

You can see more back to school layouts on my blog here.
Happy Wednesday!
