Eat yellow Sno, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!

Today I’m sharing a layout I created with the June 2018 kits.  I used the Main kit, Project Life kit, Cardstock kit, and Color kit.  For my project, I was challenged to use a cut file and ephemera.  For the cut file, I chose to use one of the free cut files for June created by fellow DT member Lisa.  Make sure you have an account on the Hip Kit Club website to access this free cut file.

Here is the layout I created:

It’s a layout featuring our beloved Bahama Bucks, which has awesome shaved ice and the best strawberry lemonade ever (my fave)!  My husband and I discovered them in college, and we were thrilled when we got one locally!

I used 2 different pink cardstocks: a lighter pink for the cut file and a slightly darker one for the background.  Then I added some machine stitching with pink thread, which turned out a bit wonky, but lets just say I did that on purpose.  Haha!  I splashed some of the Shimmerz paints we got from this month’s color kit in a diagonal across the page.

I backed my photos with some pattern paper and one Project Life card, then added them to the top right and bottom left of my layout.  I used some of the Pinkfresh Studio ephemera,puffy stickers, and enamel dots to embellish my layout.

I finished off my layout with a simple “sweet” title from the Embellishment kit and a little bit of journaling.

I’m so happy with how my project came out.  I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty!

Happy Friday (the 13th)!

Learn new things everyday, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey guys!

Today, I’m sharing a layout I made for the Hip Kit Club Facebook page on Wednesday.  I used the June 2018 Hip kits.  This week we got to choose our own theme or product to focus on, and I chose the Pretty Little Studio journaling tags found in the Embellishment kit.  I thought they would be perfect to use on a school layout.

This is Ellie’s yearbook picture from the 1st grade.  (She will be going to 3rd grade, so I’m behind…ha!)

I started out by splattering color across the page with a couple Shimmerz from the June Color kit and Vicki Boutin paints that we got in last month’s color kit.  Once dry, I arranged the tags on the cardstock.  I filled in the tag with handwritten journaling, some Pretty Little Studio phrase stickers, and some stamps that we got in previous kits.

I added my title using the green Pinkfresh Studio alpha stickers.  Then I machine stitched through the title and tags using colorful thread.  I added my photo, and some flowers around the photo.

I added the Bella Blvd floral paper at the bottom, and I also fussy cut a few flowers and adhered it to the top right and bottom left of the layout.

I am really happy with how my layout turned out!

I used the June 2018 Main kit, Project Life kit, Embellishment kit, Color kit, and the white cardstock from the Cardstock kit.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday!

XOXO, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing a layout I created with my June 2018 Hip kits and inspiration from this month’s HKC mood board.

Here is the mood board:

28424152_10156252936159283_561649670449348186_o

I was really inspired by the section with all the black & white pieces.  I knew I wanted to create something based on that.

Here is what I created:

ahsang HKC xoxo 1

I knew I wanted to create a wall of b&w circles on the background, so I used the HKC exclusive b&w plaid paper, an exclusive PL card, and a little piece of Pinkfresh Studio paper.  Since I didn’t have too many b&w pattern paper options, I decided to make my own using white cardstock, black ink, and the Vicki Boutin stamps included in this month’s HKC color kit.

I chose to use a photo from last year’s bluebonnet photo session, because the colors matched perfectly with the Pinkfresh Studio embellishments I wanted to use.

I used bits and pieces from the Hip Kit Club June 2018 Main kit, Color kit, Project Life kit, and Embellishment kit.  I love how all the kits coordinate so well with each other!

That’s it for me…I hope I’ve inspired you to create your own pattern paper with stamps!

Happy Monday!

 

 

 

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:

ahsang HKC hellolittleme 1

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.

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:

ahsang HKC goElliego 1

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!

ahsang HKC books 1

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.

ahsang HKC books 2

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.
