3 more cards featuring the Hip Kit Club May 2019 kits

Hello crafty friends!  Today I have 3 more cards to share with you using the May 2019 Hip Kit Club kits.  I was challenged to use cut files, so I am using a cut file on each of my cards.  You can check out all the cut files on the Hip Kit Club website!

For the first card, I made a 5×7 sized balloon shaker card.

ahsang HKC 3cards cutfiles 3

I used the Balloon subscriber cutfile for the shaker element.  I isolated one of the solid balloons, blew it up until the ballon was about 3 1/2 in wide, and created an internal offset so I would have a frame.  I cut it out of white cardstock.  I also cut out the solid balloon without the offset for the back of my shaker.  I did a little ink blending with Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry, which was from an older color kit, to create an ombre pink to white on the solid balloon.  I used a Crate Paper clear sticker for the sentiment on the inside of the shaker.  After adhering clear acetate to the balloon frame, and carefully adding foam tape to the balloon tape, I used the gorgeous sequins from the kits and attached it to the solid balloon.  I also used a CP tassel and the gold string that was on the packaging for the tassels on the balloon.  For the background, I used a Crate Paper pattern paper, some ink splatters using the Lindy’s Starburst Spray in TiffanyLou Blue and Cotton Candy Pink (from the March 2019 color kit), some hashtag words that I cut from the Dear Lizzy pattern paper, and some more sequins.  I made the card base from the yellow cardstock in the cardstock kit.
For my next card, I used the Balloon cutfile again, but I used the entire cluster this time.

I cut each balloon from the Paige Evans Horizon pattern paper.  (Each balloon is about an inch or so wide.)  I used foam tape to pop up some of the balloons, and I used twine for the balloon strings.  Then to ground the balloons, I used one of the CP chipboard stickers…it’s the hand that supposed to be making the OK symbol, but I turned it on it’s side to make it look like it’s holding the strings.  I can’t decide yet if that was genius or if it just looks plain weird, lol!!!  I used the Crate Paper rainbow pattern paper for the background, some more of the Lindy’s sprays, and some more of the sequins.  The sentiment is from the HKC exclusive ephemera pack.  I also hand drew a couple of stars on the pattern paper.  I made the A2 sized card base from the blue paper from the cardstock kit.

 

For my 3rd card, I kept it pretty simple.

I die cut the “You Rock” sentiment twice from the Freebie Titles cut file on white cardstock.  I sprayed one of the titles with the Lindy’s Cotton Candy Pink spray and with an older Shimmerz spray in Ruby to create a darker pink.  I glued them together a little off set to create a shadowed effect.  I also die cut a couple of big hearts, one is a Pinkfresh Studio pattern paper and the other is one that I made by using the same Lindy’s starburst sprays.  I attached it to the Dear Lizzy hashtag pattern paper, and glued the sentiment on top with thin slivers of foam tape.  I made the pink A2 sized cardbase from the pink cardstock in the cardstock kit.
I hope you like the way my cards turned out!

Love Love Love, featuring Pinkfresh Studio

Hi friends!  I made a layout for the Pinkfresh Studio May challenge, which is Anything Goes themed, and Rainbow colors.  You can find more information about it on the Pinkfresh Studio website today, and create your own project as well.

57204022_10158089012072316_3679241402920730624_o.jpg

I used bits and pieces from all 3 of the new collections from Pinkfresh Studio:  Joyful Day, Everyday Musings, and Out & About.  I painted little R’s nails pink for the first time, and she absolutely loved it!  Of course I had to take a ton of photos and document it, haha!1024jungahsang_05challenge_01

Like my recent project with Pinkfresh Studio, I started off using the Pinkfresh studio watercolors, and painted watercolor stripes in rainbow order on my background.  I also added machine stitched scallops in coordinating thread colors.

While that was drying, I created a LOVE cutfile using the Frontage font.  I cut it out 3 times on white cardstock.  I knew I wanted to fill the Os with my photos, and I wanted to back the other letters in kind of a rainbow.

1024jungahsang_05challenge_03

After adhering the cut files to my background using foam squares, I set about embellishing in a tone on tone color scheme.  I used ephemera, puffy stickers, labels and enamel dots to add interest to the layout.

1024jungahsang_05challenge_05

I LOVE how this layout turned out, and I hope you do too.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and don’t forget to check out this challenge on the Pinkfresh blog.  I’d love to see what you create!

Lets go swimming, featuring Pinkfresh Studio

Hello friends!  I’m on the Pinkfresh Studio blog today, and I’m sharing a summer layout that I created using the Joyful Day collection.  For more photos and info, head over to the Pinkfresh blog!

There is a lot of pretty blue tones in this collection, so I decided to make a pool layout.  The photo is of my littlest one at the pool last year, and I love how happy she looks!

1024jungahsang_050119_01

I started off by cutting some scallops on white cardstock using my silhouette machine.  The cut file is by Paige Evans, and is called scalloped border background.  The scallops reminded me of waves, so I backed a few of them with the blue pattern papers.  The papers I used are Perfect Moment, Big Ideas, and Fresh Start.

1024jungahsang_050119_03

I painted some watercolor stripes using the Pinkfresh Studio watercolors in Sky blue (my favorite) and Sapphire.  Then I added a few machine stitched scallops, and I love the texture it created.

I adhered my photo, which I backed with the Small Beginnings pattern paper, using foam squares.  I embellished the photo with a wreath that I cut out from the Big Ideas pattern paper, a few sticker labels, tabs from the ephemera pack, and some enamel dots.

1024jungahsang_050119_05

I added a title using the mini puffy alpha stickers.  There are so many letters included in this pack that I was able to spell out the hole title in the orange/red colors, which worked out perfectly since my daughter’s swimsuit is bright orange.

To balance off my layout, I added a few scallops to the bottom, and one to the top. I added a few more embellishments using the ephemera pack and the puffy stickers.

I really love how this one turned out, and I’m so happy to have another layout for my baby’s album!

I hope you are inspired by my project!

Happy Wednesday!

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!

2 Out & About layouts, featuring Pinkfresh Studio

Hello friends!  Today, I’m on the Pinkfresh Studio blog sharing 2 layouts that I created from the new Out and About collection.  Stop by the PfS blog for more photos and information!  One of my favorite pieces from the whole collection is the New Places pattern paper (the one with rainbow stripes).  I love it, and was so inspired by it!

For my first layout, I wanted to document baby girl’s first airplane ride (who is now 2 years old).  I used the New Places paper as inspiration, and I decided to add some machine stitching in stripes and in a rainbow pattern on some white cardstock.  Originally I had planned to cut off the tails of the thread, but then decided that I kid of like the fringed looks, so I just trimmed the pieces that were too long.

1024jungahsang_040119_02

For this layout, I was also inspired by all the circles on the Explore pattern paper.  So using some metal nesting dies, I die cut a few circles from the pattern papers in this collection, as well as my 2 photos.

1024jungahsang_040119_03

I arranged all the circles on my layout until I liked how things looked.  I adhered some of the circles with double sided tape, and others with foam squares to add a bit of interest and dimension.  To embellish my layout I pulled out some circle embellishments and airplane themed embellishments.  I also used some of the enamel dots from this collection, as well as some enamel dots from Pinkfresh Studio’s previous collections.

1024jungahsang_040119_04

For my title, I chose the “going places” banner sticker, and then I added “She’s” using the tiny puffy alpha stickers from the Everyday Musings collection.To finish off my layout, I added a strip of the rainbow striped paper to the bottom of my page.

1024jungahsang_040119_01

 

For my second layout, I documented a quick stop to Mt. Scott in OK.  I am using a Pinkfresh Studio cut file called travel tags, which will be available for free in the Pinkfresh Studio Fan group soon.  I used 2 of the cut file tags: one has a mountain scene, and the other says Wander.  I backed those tags with the rainbow striped New Places pattern paper.

1024jungahsang_040119_07

I decided that I wanted to create a background of tags, so I added the cut file tags, and a few tags from the Travel tags pack, as well as a pieces that I cut out from the Bucket List paper to look like tags.

1024jungahsang_040119_08

Next I added my 2 photos with foam squares to elevate them off the tags.  I framed one of the photos with one of the stitched frames.

1024jungahsang_040119_10

To finish off my layout, I embellished the tags and the frames with some of the same pieces from the collection that I used from the first layout.

I love how my projects turned out, and I hope you do too.Don’t forget to check out the Out and About collection!

Happy Monday!

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!

Today I’m sharing a layout I made using the March 2019 Hip Kits.  I used the Main kit, Embellishment kit, Color kit, and a pink cardstock from the Cardstock kit.  I was challenged to use a cutfile, and incorporate a birthday theme.

ahsang HKC 39 1.jpg

The cut file that I used is a free March 2019 Subscriber cut file from HKC called floral background.  I cut it from white cardstock, and backed it with 2 Heidi Swapp pattern papers.  The cut file makes such a big impact on the background, but since I used a tone on tone color scheme, I don’t think it looks too busy.  I added some ink splatters with Lindy’s Stamp Gang cotton candy shimmer spray from this month’s Color kit, and Heidi Swapp’s gold color shine.  Once dry, I adhered the cut file right on top, and I popped it up from the background using foam squares.

ahsang HKC 39 2

I wanted my photos to have a photo booth/ film strip appearance, so I put them together in photoshop and printed them out.  I added them on top of the cut file to the left side.  Then, I embellished around the photos with Hip Kit Club exclusive ephemera.  I love the florals in the pack so much!!!

ahsang HKC 39 4

My title is simply 39.  I used the Heidi Swapp thinkers from the Embellishment kit.  These thickers have a sort of color blocked pattern on them, and for these numbers it was pink with a little piece of yellow.  I didn’t want yellow, since I didn’t really have yellow anywhere else, so I just changed it with Versamark ink and gold embossing powder.

ahsang HKC 39 3

To finish off my layout, I added another phrase ephemera from Hip Kit Club, and journaling strips to the bottom right corner of my layout.

I really love how this layout turned out, and I hope you’re inspired as well.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Thursday!
