Sparkle and Shine, a layout featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

Welcome and thanks for stopping by!  Today I’ve got a layout to share with you using the September Hip Kit Club main kit, paper kit, cardstock kitembellishment kit, color kit, and the project life kit…I used it all, LOL!  I couldn’t help it!

A weekly sketch challenge is posted every Friday on the Hip Kit Club Facebook Member Forum, and a few design team members create projects based on the sketch.  I highly recommend you check it out to see how you can win a $10 coupon code to the store!

Here’s my take on the sketch:

(Ellie is my big ball of sunshine…oh, I love her so!  The ambassador award at her school is a very big deal.  Only a handful of students get this award a couple times a school year.  Ellie’s big sister Lola has gotten the ambassador award twice, and Ellie was determined to get that medal too.  Imagine her excitement when she got picked to be the ambassador (finally, she says) in first grade!)

To begin my layout, I started with some mixed media.  I used a big round brush, and dipped it straight into the bottle of the Shimmerz Tuscan Sun Spritz to create the big ink splatters.  I also added a few splatters of the Shimmerz Caribbean Sunset Spritz, and some Heidi Swapp color shine from my stash.  After letting that dry, I used the Echo Park Knight Sky stencil and some texture paste to add some tiny tone on tone white stars.

Once everything was dry, I layed out all my photos, and decided where I wanted to put my title.  I love the mixed alpha title I created using the Shimelle glitter foam thickers, the Paige Evans sticker sheet blue square letters, and the Hip Kit Club gold alpha.

I added some hand stitched stars that I fussy cut from a Paige Evans pattern paper, and a few stars from the Shimelle glitter foam thickers.

I felt like the right side needed a little something something, so I added a paper strip from the Maggie Holmes Festival pattern paper.  I love how the strip of tickets coordinate with the photo and colors of embellishments.  It also justifies my layout to the right, leaving all the white space to the left.

This page was so much fun to create!  I used lots of techniques…mixed media, mixed title, layering, hand stitching, and machine stitching too!  I love my title especially!  I need to try the mixed alpha title more often!

That’s it for me!  I hope you like my layout, and are inspired to get crafty!  Check out our Hip Kit Club Member Forum Facebook page to see the sketch!

Happy Sunday y’all!

Moments, a layout featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey guys!

Today I’ve got a layout to share with you featuring the September Hip Kit Club main kit & embellishment kit.  A weekly sketch challenge is posted every Friday on the Hip Kit Club Facebook Member Forum, and a few design team members create projects based on the sketch.  I highly recommend you check it out to see how you can win a $10 coupon code to the store!

Here’s my take on the sketch!

(This is Miss Ruby at 7 months old.  I absolutely love this baby stage…it’s so cute seeing her grab her toes.  I’ve got all the heart eyes for her!!!)

I started my layout by mapping out where I wanted the circles.  I used circle dies that I had near my desk to lightly trace various sizes with a pencil.  To make the hand stitching go easier, I used a needle to pre-poke holes.  I chose some embroidery floss colors to match the beautiful Pink Paislee Paige Evans Turn the Page pattern paper 02…love, love, love that full page of floral!

I punched some different sized circles from my favorite papers from the collection that coordinated will with the floral paper.  I attached some directly onto the paper, and added foam squares to others.

I added a few layers under my photo, and embellished with florals on each side.  For my title, I used the “moments” die cut, and then added some journaling, which I printed on vellum.

To finish off my layout, I added some gold ink platters, and a few other Paige Evans embellishments.  (Love that butterfly!)

That’s it for me!  I hope you like my layout, and are inspired to get crafty!  Check out our Hip Kit Club Member Forum Facebook page to see the sketch!

made with love, scrapbook layout redo

Hey friends!

Today, I’m here to share a redo layout of my layout “Made with Love.”  I confess that I am a bit of a perfectionist.  I am slowly getting some layouts made of baby girl #3.  I was putting a few layouts away in her album, and there was a layout I made about her handmade quilt.  It has always bothered me that I didn’t get the squares to line up just perfectly, and I didn’t measure right, so I ended up cutting the 4th row (to the right & on the bottom) smaller than the others.  That kind of messed up the x pattern sewing I did.

I know it’s not very obvious in the photo, but it was to me, and it bothered me.  It was summer break, I didn’t have any assignments at that moment, and baby girl was asleep for the night, so I figured why not redo it.

Here is my redo:

I really like how it came out.  The + cut file is this one from the justnick shop.  I used some papers from my Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Gather and Cute Girl 6×6 paper pads.  The alpha is American Crafts thickers.  The owl is from my favorite Mama Elephant stamp set charmed that I stamped and colored with copic markers.

I am much happier with how this layout turned out.  It is ready to go in the album!

I rarely redo layouts, but I guess I was in the crafty mood.

What to do think?  Which do you prefer?

Happy Friday friends!  TGIF!!!

 

Seven, a layout feature Scrapbook Circle

Hey guys!  I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog today featuring the DIY fringe included in the July Smile More Kit as a part of 1 Product 2 Ways.  The letters are from the July Laugh More add-on.

I inked up one of the DIY fringe with Distress Ink in picked raspberry and an ink blending tool to match my daughter’s glasses.  I also made 2 strips of my own fringe with pattern paper.

I love how the layers of fringe and the tiny flowers that I hand cut kind of echo the florals behind Ellie in the photo.

Stop by the blog for more info and photos, and to see how Tessa used the DIY fringe!

Happy Tuesday!

P. S.  how is my daughter 7 already!  GAH!!!

Zoo, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey there crafty peeps!

Today I have a layout on the Scrapbook Circle blog created using the July Smile More kit.  The alpha is from the July Laugh More add-on.

I finally got around to scrapbooking the zoo trip we took several years ago to our favorite zoo in Waco, TX, the Cameron Park Zoo.  I’m happy to have it done, and ready to go in the album!

The Perfect Day bear sticker is a Shimelle sticker which came in one of the past kits, but I just couldn’t help but put it on this layout…it’s perfect!

I hope you’re having a lovely weekend!

Happy Saturday!
