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!

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!

2 sweet layouts, featuring Pinkfresh Studio’s Joyful Day

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing 2 layouts I made for the Pinkfresh Studio blog using the Joyful Day collection.  The colors and the florals in this collection are stunning, and I had so much fun creating with these products.

For my first project, I made a grid layout, which is a personal favorite of mine.  I am also scrapping photos of my sister’s new corgi puppy.  Her name is Eevee, and she is so cute and feisty!

1024jungahsang_030419_01

On a sheet of white cardstock, I added some pink ink blending, and paint splatters.  For the splatter, I used some Pinkfresh Studio watercolors.  I wanted the perfect shade of blue to match the blue color in the kits, so I mixed a little bit of sky blue, sapphire, lavender, and a lot of water.  I lightly sketched a grid, then added some hand stitching.

I die cut circles from some of the pattern papers in the collection: fresh startsmall beginnings, being us, and big ideas.  I also used the Fancy Floral 1 die to create a tone-on-tone look.

1024jungahsang_030419_06

For my photos, I knew I wanted to frame them with the botanicals circle frame die.  I ended up die cutting the frame from white cardstock 6 times; I wanted each frame to be a layer of 3 frames, so that it would give a dimensional, chipboard effect.  I glued the frames to the photos.

1024jungahsang_030419_04

I arranged my circles on the grid, and once I liked how everything was played out, I started adhering the circles to the layout.

I embellished the frames with puffy stickers, ephemera pieces, one of the chipboard frames, cardstock stickers, more puffy stickersmixed embellishments and enamel dots.

1024jungahsang_030419_03

I also used the Embroidered Blossoms stamps set and coordinating dies to create my own embellishments.  The beauty of stamp sets is that you’re able to create your own embellishments in the exact color scheme you want, not to mention you can use them over and over again.

1024jungahsang_030419_05

For my title, I used a mixture of fonts; I used the puffy alpha stickers, and the multicolor mini puffy alpha stickers.

1024jungahsang_030419_02

For my second layout, I used an exclusive Pinkfresh Studio cut file, called Folk Motif, which you can access in the Pinkfresh Studio Fan Group FB page.  I thought the cutfile, and the colors int the collection worked perfectly with the photos of my youngest daughter all dressed up.  Already, she loves to play dress up, and Belle seems to be her favorite princess…or maybe she just really likes the color yellow.  Either way, she is cute, cute, cute!

1024jungahsang_030419_07

I cut the Folk Motif on white cardstock, and I backed the cut file with the pattern papers in the collection: simple pleasures, being us, true story, and small beginnings.

I mounted the cut file on white cardstock.  I adhered it to the left side, and I couldn’t decide if I wanted it to hang off the edge or not.  In the end, I decided to add a bit of the pattern paper to the left side, because I didn’t want to trim any of the cut file off, and since it was hanging off the edge a tiny bit, I would’ve had to trim it.

1024jungahsang_030419_09

I backed the photos with pattern paper, then started to embellish.  Again, I stamped a few of the flowers and leaves from the Embroidered Blossoms stamps set, and used the coordinating dies to create my own floral embellishments.  I really love how this stamp set seem to coordinated really well with my backed cutfile!

1024jungahsang_030419_11

I also used puffy stickers, ephemera pieces, and enamel dots to embellish the layout.

1024jungahsang_030419_12

I added a simple little title using the mini puffy alpha stickers.

1024jungahsang_030419_10

I love how the cutfile turned out!  It makes such a big impact on my layout, and enhances the photos, rather than overpowers them.

1024jungahsang_030419_08

I really love how my layouts turned out, and I hope you got some inspiration as well.  Don’t forget to check out the Joyful Day collection!

Happy Monday!

Two, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey everyone!

I’ve got a layout today featuring the Hip Kit Club January 2019 Main Kit, Embellishment Kit, Color Kit, and Project Life Kit.

I have a YT process video if you’re interested!

 

 

I am documenting my daughter enjoying a slice of cake at her 2nd birthday party.  She wanted to eat her cake all by herself, and she did a pretty darn good job!  Isn’t she just the cutest?!!!

I haven’t really scrapbooked her birthday party yet, but when I saw the celebrate thickers in the January embellishment kit, I knew it was perfect.

ahsang hkc two 1

I was challenged to use the b sides of paper, and the Pinkfresh Studio chipboard frames.  Since I was going to use the frames, I remembered a cut file that we got from the HKC 12 days of giving (It’s day 12).  I just removed the Christmas words before cutting, and then I used them to back my photos.

ahsang hkc two 3

I wanted to do a little bit of work on my background.  I used the stencil and the modeling paste that we got in the Color kit.  I used some shimmerz from previous color kits, and I created some texture on the background.  I added some light blue splatters as well.

I added the pattern paper frames, the photos, and the chipboard frames.

I used the Pinkfresh Studio layered heart stickers, the “hooray for cake” sticker and the silver glitter star stickers from the Celebrate Thickers, and some puffy hearts from the Pinkfresh Studio puffy sticker sheet to embellish my layout.

ahsang hkc two 4

To finish off my layout, I added the title and my journaling strips.

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