Beauty, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey crafty friends!  Today I’m sharing a layout I made using the Hip Kit Club May 2019 kits.  I am using the Main Kit and the Embellishment kit.  I was challenged to be inspired by the Moodboard, and to use multiple photos on my layout.

I decided to document my daughter’s purple hair.  I took her to the salon to get purple highlights for her 13th birthday present.  She has been wanting purple hair for so long, and I thought that 13 was the perfect age.  Here is what I came up with:

I was inspired by the black and white images in the mood board, and of course the bright pastel colors caught my eye.

I love, love, love the HKC exclusive ephemera…it’s probably my favorite item in the kits this month.  The ephemera is so current, and was perfect for my layout feauring my TEEN!  I just layered up a bunch on the right side of my layout.  The b&w bow is another HKC exclusive that comes in the kits.  You just need to assemble them, and I love the cloth texture!

I also used a few pieces from the Crate Paper All Heart collection.

For my title, I used a cut file.  The “Beauty” is a Hip Kit Club free cut file that will be available on the HKC website soon.  I cut it from a purple Paige Evans Horizon, and I also cut it out 2 more times from white cardstock.  I glued them together to create a thicker cutfile…my own chipboard title!

I added some more of the Paige Evans purple paper to the left and right sides of the layout.  I added another little embellishment cluster to the bottom left to balance my layout.

Using a new kit for the first time is always my favorite.  Who doesn’t love new products!  I love how my layout turned out, and I hope you were inspired by it as well.

Sweet, Hip Kit Club iNSD video Hop

Hello friends, and happy international Scrapbook Day!

59407203_10158530666549778_7004950007459610624_o

I am part of the Hip Kit Club YT video Hop, so here is my video:

 

Vicki is next on the hop, and her video is linked in the info bar of my video.

My challenge is for you to create a project in a different size or format than you are used to.  For example, I am creating a 6×12 layout, but you could make an 8×10, 6×8 layout, or even create a mini album or TN spread…just have fun and try something different.

I am using the April 2019 Hip Kits for my layout.  There were so many cute strawberry images in the kits, that I had to document my cutie eating strawberries.

I fussy cut strawberries from the Crate Paper La La Love collection pattern paper, and they are just perfect for my layout.  I used the Hip Kit Club exclusive acetate alphabet for my title, and I love the way they look when they overlap!

I also used several pieces from the Dear Lizzy It’s All Good collection: stickers and layered stickers.  I love the dimension on the layered stickers!

Isn’t that little piggy so cute?  My little one loves pigs, so it was perfect!

I absolutely loved making the 6×12 size, and I will definitely be trying this size again!

Shine Bright, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hi friends!  Today I’m sharing a layout that I recently shared on the Hip Kit Club FB page.  I was challenged to use the mood board for inspiration.  This is my last layout using the fabulous March 2019 Hip Kits.  I used a little bit of all the kits, as they coordinated so well with my project!  My daughter had an Island-themed choir concert recently, and the Maggie Holmes Sunny Days collection was perfect for my layout!

Here is the Mood Board:

54728939_2193787000642006_2893506539463639040_n

I was particularly drawn to the pink image with the florals lined up on the left side.

Here is my layout inspired by the mood board:

ahsang HKC shinebright 2

I decided to fussy cut the florals in one of the Maggie H pattern papers.  I lined them up on the left side of pink cardstock, and adhered them with foam squares for dimension.

ahsang HKC shinebright 4

I added 3 photos, and embellished them.  I added a few more fussy cut flowers, a butterfly (which was also on the mood board), and some typed journaling.  I also added the shells from the MH collection, and they were perfect; one of the songs the choir sang was “Pearly Shells.”

My title is a combination of the pink thickers, and the epoxy word stickers.  I really like the font on the epoxy stickers!

ahsang HKC shinebright 3

I finished off my layout with a little cluster of Heidi Swapp labels in the bottom right.  I added the date and the occasion.

ahsang HKC shinebright 5

I love love love how this turned out!  While it did take me some time to fussy cut the flowers, I love the impact they give!

I hope you are inspired by the mood board, and my layout.  Don’t forget to check out the Hip Kit Club website…the April 2019 kits are amazing!

Happy Tuesday!

 

 

Mason jar mini album, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!  I was challenged to create an interactive project using the Hip Kit Club March 2019 Main kit.  When I think of interactive elements, I immediately think of pockets and sequin shaker elements.  I decided to make a mini album of our recent Spring Break vacation, and I used a HKC free subscriber cut file from February called Candy Hearts, which you can access from the Hip Kit Club website.  I love the mason jar, and it’s perfect for a shaker element!  The shape is also the perfect size for a shaped mini album.

ahsang HKC SBmini 1

First, I cut the mason jars from white, pink, and blue cardstock (from the March Cardstock kit) using my Silhouette Cameo.

ahsang HKC SBmini 2

I also cut just the outline of the jar on a scrap piece of cardstock, so I could use it as a template for pattern paper.  The shape of the jar is so simple, I was fine tracing and fussy cutting it from the paper, instead of sending each pattern paper through the silhouette machine.  Once I had everything cut, I figured out where I wanted each jar to go, and I adhered them back to back.  I added my photos, and then added a lot of embellishments. I absolutely love the Hip Kit Club Exclusive ephemera pack…it was perfect for my mini album!

ahsang HKC SBmini 3

For the first interactive element, I created a pocket.  I just traced the lower half of a mason jar on a piece of pattern paper.  I cut the top off in a diagonal, and I adhered it to the back using my sewing machine.

ahsang HKC SBmini 4

I love that Heidi Swapp watercolor pattern paper.  I have used it on all of my projects, and I only have tiny scraps left!  For the next interactive element, I created a shaker.  I used clear acetate (you could recycle clear plastic packaging), thins strips of foam tape, and sequins to create my shaker.  It’s such a fun element, and I know my girls will love flipping through this mini!

ahsang HKC SBmini 5

I really like to fill up the pages in my minis with lots of photos and embellishments.  I also like to add interest with different textures and finishes.  The mini hearts and the epoxy thinkers add the perfect hint of shine.

ahsang HKC SBmini 6

I added even more texture to the mini album by adding machine stitching, and distressing some of the edges on the jars and ephemera.

ahsang HKC SBmini 7

To finish off my album. I punched a hole in the jars, added them onto a ring, and then added a shiny ribbon.

It was so much fun creating this little mini album.  I hope you were inspired by my project.

Happy Saturday!

Fun Never Stops, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hi friends!

Today I’m sharing a layout that I made using a little bit of all the March 2019 Hip Kits.  I was challenged to use the March HKC mood board.

52303923_2220707901512204_2228326700721111040_o

I was particularly drawn to the image on the right with the feathers arranged in an ombre pattern, so I decided to take that as my inspiration.

ahsang HKC fun 1

I used a free March HKC subscriber cut file called books.  I cut the big title from white cardstock, and I backed it with a Heidi Swapp pattern paper in an ombre pattern.  I adhered the cut file to blue cardstock with foam squares.

ahsang HKC fun 3

I embellished with flowers from the Crate Paper sticker sheet and a few of the HKC exclusive ephemera.  I also had the flowers left over from the cut file that I used recently on this layout, so I sprayed them with the Lindy’s cotton candy shimmer spray, and used them as embellishments on the layout.

I really love all the colors in the March Hip kits, as well as all the pretty florals.  I hope you like how my project turned out, and it inspires you to get crafty!

Magic, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

I made a new layout using the February 2019 Hip Kit Club kits.  I used one of the March free cut files, which you can access from the website if you have an account, and I was challenged to use this week’s sketch.

I filmed a process video if you’re interested:

 

I decided to scrapbook all the Hip Kit Club DT announcements that I have been a part of.  I love being on the HKC DT so much!

I hope you love my project as much as I do!

Happy Sunday!

 

I never knew, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello Hip Kit Club friends!  Today, I’m sharing a layout that I made using some of the frames in the February 2019 kits. I documented my 3 girls wearing the same dress. I used these photos recently in my December Daily 2018 album, but I had to have a 12×12 layout for my traditional album as well. They are not triplets, lol, as some people thought when I posted my DD album page. One photo was taken in 2008, another in 2013, and my youngest in 2018.

ahsang HKC mommy 2

I used bits and pieces from all the February kits, but here are some highlights. I decided to use the Pinkfresh Studio chipboard frames from the Main kit to frame my photos.

ahsang HKC mommy 1

The other focus of my layout is the long quote title, and I used the Pinkfresh Studio mini puffy alpha stickers from the Project Life kit. I had enough letters for my long title, with plenty left to spare!

ahsang HKC mommy 3

I also used the stencil, and a little bit of the pink paint from the Color Kit, mixed with texture paste, for some interest on my background. I used the Crate Paper heart pattern paper, exclusive to the Paper Kit, to line the left side of my layout.

ahsang HKC mommy 5

Finally, I embellished my layouts with Crate Paper stickers, and Pinkfresh Studio puffy stickers from the Embellishment Kit, along with some layered hearts that I hand cut and machine stitched using the Crate Paper pattern papers.

I really hope you like my layout, and were inspired to get crafty. Don’t forget to check out the February 2019 Hip Kits!

Happy Friday!
