Today I’m sharing a layout featuring the September 2018 Hip Kits. I am using the Main kit, the Embellishment kit, and the enamel dots from the Project Life kit. I really wanted to create something with the Cottage paper from the Maggie Holmes Willow Lane collection, so I fussy cut all the little houses. I also picked the Eminence paper from Pinkfresh Studio (the blue to ombre), and for some reason, I thought it needed to be a Halloween layout.
I am a few years behind on my Halloween layouts, so it was a perfect opportunity to scrap one of the years. I chose photos from a few years ago, and wanted to document one of my older daughter’s costumes. I had asked her several years in a row if she wanted to go as Mary Poppins, and that year, she finally said yes. I bought a cheap straw hat on Amazon, spray painted it black, and hot glued some flowers on. The shirt, ribbon, tights, and shoes we already had, so I just had to buy the skirt. I LOVE how she looked! It’s one of my favorite costumes that she has had!
So for the layout, I lined up the fussy cut houses in 2 rows, and I stitched through them. I added my photos, and some journaling that I typed onto vellum. They are just some fun quotes from Mary Poppins.
To finish off my layout, I added the fun alpha title, and then I flicked some watered down white paint to add some stars to the sky.
Even though I didn’t use any Halloween themed products, I think my layout goes with the photos really well. The rows of houses remind me of the houses from the movie, and like I said, the background paper really made me think of Halloween.
I hope you guys like my layout…I think it turned out cute! I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty with your Hip Kits!
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
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.
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!
Thanks for stopping by, and
Today I’m sharing a layout that I put up on the Hip Kit Club facebook page yesterday. I am using the August 2018 Hip Kits: Main Kit, Project Life Kit, and Color Kit.
I have been loving the pink, lavender, and yellow colors in these kits lately as you can see in my other projects here, here, and here. For this layout, I decided to go in a different direction. I am scrapping photos from my daughter’s Veterans day music program at her school (last year). I really wanted to use all the blue colors in the kits to go along with the Veterans day theme.
I started off by splattering my white cardstock with the Oakie Bear Blue shimmerz we got in the color kit. Then I looked for all the blue pattern paper in the kits, and cut them into various sized strips. I glued & machine stitched them on my layout with a right justification. I also liked the Maggie Holmes gold star decorative trim, and it went really well with the Veterans day theme.
Since I wanted the strips to be the star of the show, I decided to keep the embellishments to a minimum.
I really like how my layout turned out. I love how all the different elements pulled into the Veterans day theme…the blue color, the stars, the stripes of the pattern paper strips, and the title itself.
I really love how my layout turned out, and I hope you like it too!
I’m so excited to announce that I will be continuing on the Design Team for Hip Kit Club for the next term!
There are a bunch of talented ladies on the team, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
Hello friends! I hope you’re having a fantastic day. Today I have a layout featuring the August 2018 Hip Kit Club kits.
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!
I’ve got a variety of techniques on my project…
fussy cutting and ink splatters:
stamping and layering:
…as well as punching and machine stitching. I added my title and hand written journaling to finish off my layout.
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!
Hello friends! Today, and I’m sharing a layout inspired by the recent Hip Kit Club sketch challenge, and the August mood board. This is my first layout with the August 2018 Hip Kits, and I am in love!
Here is what I created:
I loved the sketch this week! It is very much my style…I love embellishing squares and creating grid layouts!
I was inspired by this month’s mood board as well. I love all the soft pastel colors (especially the purple), and I love the image on the top right with the cluster of little “embellishments.”
I started off by stamping one of the floral images from the Maggie Holmes stamp set that was included in this month’s embellishment kit. Then I added some ink splatter.
Next, I cut 4 pieces of pattern paper & cardstock to 4 x 4 inches. I added 3 photos to 3 of the squares. On the last square, I hand wrote my journaling on an HKC exclusive project life card, then cut it out to look like a tag.
Next, it was about embellishing the squares…my favorite part!
This month’s Hip Kits were perfect to document my daughter getting a short hair cut and donating her hair. (Old photos) I’m loving the cute little details and the colors of Maggie Holmes’ new collection!
For my project, I used the August 2018 Main kit, Project Life kit, Embellishment kit, and Cardstock kit.
I love how my layout turned out! I really hope you create something inspired by the mood board, or take part in our sketch challenge on the HKC Facebook group.
