Hello Little Me, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hi friends!  I have a Hip Kit Club layout to share with you.  I was challenged to use the Pretty Little Studio acetate paper from the Paper Kit.  I used theJune 2018 Hip Kit Club  Cardstock KitColor KitProject Life Kit, the gold puffy hearts from the Embellishment Kit, and the papers found in the Main Kit or Paper Kit.

I was cleaning out my scrap room, and I came across these tiny little photos of me when I was in Elementary school.  I don’t think my daughters have seen these particular photos, so I decided to scrap them.  That way, they’ll be in our family album for them to enjoy, haha.  (Look at me and my fancy puffed sleeves!  Anne of GG would be so proud!)

Here’s what I came up with:

I made tags with some of the papers in the kits, including the acetate paper.  (Tip: I added adhesive to the acetate only where I knew it would be hidden by the photo.)  I also used the papers to layer different sized circles that I die cut and machine stitched.

I embellished with flowers, some are Pinkfresh Studio ephemera, and there are a couple that I stamped using the Vicki Boutin stamps included in the color kit.  Then I finished with a few Pinkfresh Studio enamel dots and puffy gold hearts.

Here’s a closer look at the story:

That’s it for me today!  I hope you liked walking down memory lane with me, and I hope I inspired you to get crafty.

Happy Friday!

Go Ellie Go, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!  I have a layout to share with you that I created for sketch Friday on the Hip Kit Club blog.  I am using bits and pieces from the April 2018 Main Kit, Color Kit, Embellishment Kit, and Project Life Kit.

Ellie recently learned to ride her bike with no training wheels!  Yay!  She was very brave and worked through all the falls.  (Those falls are so hard on a Mama’s heart!)  She learned pretty quickly though, and we are so proud.  Of course I took tons of photos so I could scrapbook them!

Here is the sketch designed by Jill Sprott:

Here is my layout:

This week’s sketch was not my typical style, but I decided to fully embrace it, and be inspired by it.  That’s the beauty of sketches…it encourages us to try something we normally wouldn’t.

I started with the stencil from this month’s color kit, and a pink distress oxide ink (Picked Raspberry from a previous color kit).  I added some ink splashes too, as usual.  Then I chose some coordinating papers from the kit.  I chose the yellow paper first to match my daughter’s helmet, then I chose 2 more papers that coordinated with the yellow.

I picked 3 photos that would tell the story, one of her ready to learn, one of her and my husband teaching her, and one of her finally riding on her own.  I then embellished each one of the photos with flowers and puffy stickers.

For my title, I chose the HKC exclusive ombre puffy alpha stickers!  The color & size are perfect for my page!  They might be my favorite item from the April kits.  If you got the kits, what are your favorites?

I’m so happy with how my layout turned out, and I’m glad I was challenged by the sketch!  I hope you were inspired to get crafty!

Fancy, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

Today I have a layout to share with you, using Hip Kit Club February 2018 kits.  Last week’s theme was Flowers & Butterflies, and here is my take on the theme.

ahsang HKC fancy 1

This photo was taken for last year’s book character day at my daughter’s school.  My daughters love the book “Fancy Nancy,” and we had all the items she needed to pull off Fancy Nancy already, so it was a win win!

I used a bunch of Distress Oxide inks from previous color kits, which you can find here, here, and here, to create a rainbow background on a piece of white cardstock.  I used one of the Hip Kit Club March cut files; this one is bugs designed by Jana.  I chose 2 butterflies from the cut file, copied them in different sizes, and arranged them in a diagonal across my project.  I cut it using my silhouette on another piece of white cardstock.

Then I used a few pieces from the February 2018 Main Kit, Project Life Kit, and the Embellishment Kit to complete my layout.  I love the Amy Tangerine gold glitter thickers, and I also love the rub-ons from Paige Evans.  (I used to LOVE rub-ons, especially alphabet rub-ons, so it’s fun to see them coming back!)

That’s it for me!  I really love the way my layout turned out, I hope you do too!

Happy Tuesday!

books are magic, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey everybody!  Today I have a Project Life product focus layout to share with you using the stickers and the ephemera from the February 2018 Hip Kit Club Project Life kit.  I love getting the HKC Project Life kit, because they are always jam packed with awesome products.

I made a layout about last year’s book character dress up day at my daughter’s school.  She loves to read, especially series, and she decided to dress up as Arya from the Inheritance Series.

This month’s Hip kits are perfect for my book-loving heart!

I love this book quote by author Stephen King, and I wanted to emphasize it in a big way, so I cut a big title using my Silhouette Cameo; I just used the stock typewriter font on my computer, and cut it from white cardstock.  I was careful to keep the inside pieces of the letters, like the o’s, so I could glue them in place.

All the kits this month are just fabulous!  The patterns and colors of the papers in the February 2018 Main kit are gorgeous, the exclusive PL cards in the Project Life kit are perfect for layering behind photos, and I also love the Pinkfresh Studio puffy stickers.

That’s it for me!  I hope you like my layout!

Happy Saturday!

Go. See. Do., featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!

Today, I’m sharing a layout with you that I created, focusing on some Pinkfresh Studio frames and ephemera.  I recently went on a “coloring crop,” and got to meet some talented card makers, which I blogged about here.  Of course being a scrapbooker, I had to take pictures and document it.  Ha!

ahsang HKC GoSeeDo 1

It was so easy to pull this page together, because we had a lot of product from the Pinkfresh Studio Let Your Heart Decide Collection.

I love that Pinkfresh Studio Instinct paper!  I have used it on several layouts already!  I also love the white foam thickers from Paige Evans’ new Pick Me Up collection.  I love the font, and the size is perfect too.

I used bits and pieces from the Hip Kit Club February 2018 Main Kit, Embellishment Kit, and Project Life Kit.

Well, that’s it for me!  I hope you were inspired by my project.

Happy Saturday peeps!

Easter 2017 layout, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!  I hope you are all healthy and happy!

Today, I’m sharing a layout I made using February 2018 Hip Kits.  The theme was Project Life, and since I don’t don’t do PL, I thought I’d share how I make a traditional layout with PL products.

I am scrapping our Easter from last year…oh how time flies!  Look at my little bunny!

ahsang HKC Easter 1

I love using project life cards for layers, but I often use 3×4 cards to make a grid layout.  It’s easy to pick 6 cards, and then add photos, layers, and embellishments.  When I saw the pastel colors and the little bird card from the HKC project life kit, I knew I had to finally scrap my Easter photos.

I also used the Color Kit from this month.  I made the tag with the stencil and yellow paint from the kit.  It’s hard to tell from the photo, but I also used the stencil, and some Shimmerz glittery clear modeling paste (from the December 2017 color kit) on the top 1/3 of the cardstock.

The cardstock is from this month’s Cardstock kit, and I also used bits and pieces from the Main Kit and Embellishment kit.

That’s it for me.  I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty!

Happy Friday!

 

Friendship, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey guys and welcome!  Today, I’m sharing a layout I made using the Hip Kit Club February 2018 Main Kit only.  There is so much jam packed into these kits, you can really make fantastic layouts with the main kit only.

I made a layout about my daughter and her friend taking horse camp together.  I just love their friendship.  They took horse camp together in previous Spring Breaks and Summer Vacations.  They loved the horses and learned so much!  I need to get L back into horse camp because she loved it so much!  Now that E is old enough, I’m sure she’d like to go to horse camp too…

Here’s my layout:

ahsang HKC friendship 1

With the exception of white cardstock, and the ink splatters (which are from previous color kits), my entire layout is made using the February Main Kit.

I loved the Pinkfresh Studio pattern paper with all the greenery, and I wanted to feature it in a big way.  I also loved the soft pink and yellow colors in the kit.

I love the way my layout turned out.  If you’ve been following me for a while, I tend to be more minimalistic.  I am a big fan of white, and negative space, and this layout has an abundance of both.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope I have inspired you to get crafty!

Happy Sunday!
