3 cards, featuring Hip Kit Club June 2019 Kits

Hey friends!  Today I’m sharing 3 cards that I made using the June 2019 Hip Kit Club kits. I am using lots of Heidi Swapp and Vicki Boutin products.

I was challenged to use the new sketch for my cards.  Since the sketch is relatively simple, I was able to be inspired by it for my cards.  I looked at the big photo as the focal point of the card, the journaling as the sentiment, and the stars as the embellishments.   Here is the sketch:

I also filmed a process video for the Hip Kit Club YT channel.

 

For my first card, I used the Heidi Swapp black and white pattern paper.  I used the Amy Tangerine 3D suede flowers in a different way, by unraveling them, and using them as fringe.  I added 3 birds and the sentiment from the Vicki Boutin chipboard stickers.

For my second card, I used the same Heidi Swapp b&w pattern paper.  The pink pattern paper is from the cut apart paper from Vicki Boutin, and the butterfly is a VB ephemera.  I made my own sentiment banner by stamping the “finding the beauty in every day” stamp from Heidi Swapp.  I finished the card with holographic chipboard stars from VB.

For my last card, I believe I used all VB products.  I really wanted to incorporate the fussy cut rainbow hears, so I made this simple card.  What makes it pop is all the different layers that I created by using foam tape.

I really hope you were inspired by my cards.  I have really enjoyed creating these cards using scrapbooking supplies.  Don’t forget to check out the Hip Kit Club website for the June and July 2019 kits.

Too Cool for My Shades, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!  Today, I’m sharing a layout that I shared on the Hip Kit Club blog a couple of days ago.  I created my layout using a HKC exclusive cutfile called My Shades.  It will be available on the Hip Kit Club website soon, so keep an eye out!  For my layout, I am using the June 2019 Main Kit, Embellishment Kit, and Color Kit.

Using my silhouette machine, I enlarged the cutfile, then cut it from white cardstock.  I backed the cardstock using various shades of blue and teal from the pattern papers in the Main Kit.

I decided to use my photo as the back of the O in “for.”  I had this photo in my camera roll already, but wasn’t this photo made for this cutfile, and vice versa?  My child was looking so serious in her carseat on the way home one day…when I asked her to smile, she wouldn’t, but when I asked her for a peace sign, she gave me one.  LOL!

I decided I wanted to use white cardstock for my background.  I wanted the cutfile to pop a little more, so I decided to kind of paint the letters in an ombre fade.  I used the blue Magical powder from the Color Kit, watered it down, and painted my cut file.  I really like the depth it gave.  I mounted the cutfile onto my white cardstock with foam tape for some dimension.

Next, I used pieces from the kit to embellish my layout.  I didn’t want to take away from the cutfile, so I kept my embellishments to a minimum.  The “say cheese” speech bubble as well as the hearts are fussy cut from Vicki Boutin pattern papers.

I used the Heidi Swapp stamps to create a few more embellishments.  I added a piece of pattern paper to the top, and a few banners that I fussy cut from VB pattern paper.  I also added a few of the holographic star and circle foam stickers.  To finish off my layout, I added a few splatters of the pink Magical powder watered down.

When I started out making this layout, I must admit that I didn’t love it.  I was even wondering if I would keep this layout for her album.  However, as everything was coming together, I really ended up loving how it turned out!

I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty.  Don’t forget to head to the Hip Kit Club website to check out the June & July 2019 kits, as well as the free cutfiles.

Happy Thursday!

“Jess Peas,” featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a layout that I shared on the Hip Kit Club FB page a couple days ago, featuring stickers and numbers. I am using the HKC June 2019 Main Kit, Embellishment Kit, Color Kit, and Cardstock Kit.
I wanted to document my toddler’s love of dresses, and I wanted to remember how she asked for a dress by saying “jess peas!”

ahsang HKC jesspeas 2

I used a HKC May 2019 subscriber cut file called clothesline, and cut it from yellow cardstock using my silhouette machine. I backed it with various pattern papers from the kit. For my background, I used a pink cardstock, and I added a little bit of white texture paste in the middle using the stencil from the color kit for a little extra texture and detail.

I adhered my photos, then the backed cut file with some foam adhesive for a little dimension.  For my title, I used the glitter thickers, and it says “jess peas,” which is how my toddler says “dress please.”

ahsang HKC jesspeas 4

I added a subtitle of “24/7” and journaling strips, describing how see asks for dress all day everyday.  LOL

To finish off my layout, I added just a few stickers and embellishment.  I tried to stick with the warm color palette of red, orange, pinks, and yellow.

I wanted to keep the focus on the photos and the cutfile, so I kept my embellishments pretty minimal.  I love the way my sweet layout turned out, and I hope you do too!
Thanks for stopping by!

Shine, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!  It’s Jung here, and today I’m sharing a layout that I shared on the Hip Kit Club blog, using the June 2019 Main Kit and Cardstock kit only.  I was also challenged to add machine or hand stitching to the background.  I was really inspired by the Heidi Swapp black and white pattern paper, so I created my layout around it.

My daughter played a trumpet solo for solo & ensemble recently, and she got a I!  I am documenting her achievement on this layout.

Here is what I created:

ahsang HKC shineyay 1

I trimmed just a piece of the HS pattern paper, and placed it on white cardstock.  I used a ruler to draw lines, finishing off the pattern down my paper.  Next, I took the cardstock to my sewing machine and stitched a bunch of black lines filling in where the black stripes would be.  I attached the pattern paper to the top of the cardstock with foam squares, although you really can’t tell in the photos, and it’s pretty subtle in real life too.

ahsang HKC shineyay 3

Next, I added my photo, title, and journaling.  I used one of the HS journaling stickers for my journaling…I love it when embellishments include journaling stickers/ephemera/tags, because it makes filling in the story so easy!

ahsang HKC shineyay 4

To embellish my layout, I used a few hearts that I fussy cut from a Vicki Boutin pattern paper.  I also used the VB flowers from the embellishment pack, and the VB puffy stickers to embellish my layout.  To finish off my layout, I decided to add some stars.  I punched out tiny stars from the various cardstock colors we got in the CS kit, and I added some of the stars from the Thickers pack as well.

I love the detailing that the stitching added, and I am thrilled with how my layout turned out!  I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty!

One More Chapter Mini Album, featuring Hip Kit Club, and a YT flip through video

Hello crafty friends!  How are you?

I was challenged to make a mini album for my Hip Kit Club project this week.  Today, I’m sharing an envelope mini album that I made using the October 2018 Hip Kits.  I used the Main kit, Project Life kit, and the Embellishment kit.

I created a mini album for my 8 year old girl; I wanted to make something special for her to get excited about reading.  She is an excellent, accelerated reader, but she doesn’t really enjoy reading [YET].  My older daughter and I love to read, and I wanted her to get excited about reading too.

ahsang HKC onemorechapter 1

I have a YouTube video, where I flip through the album, and I also include a little tutorial on how to use the We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board to make your own envelopes.  I have close up photos at the end of the video as well.

 

I knew I wanted to use some of the HKC exclusive project life cards in this mini album.  I also wanted to include different sized pieces, and interactive pieces that my daughter could add to herself.  I remembered that I had the We R MK 1-2-3 Punchboard, and I wanted to use that to make custom envelopes to include in my mini album.

ahsang HKC onemorechapter 18

I chose some cute papers from the kit to make my envelopes.  I also chose a few Project Life cards, and along with the envelopes, they became the foundation pages of my mini album.

I embellished the pages with stickers, die cuts, tags that I fussy cut from a Paige Evans paper, and I loved using the Heidi Swapp stamp set that was included in the Project Life kit.

ahsang HKC onemorechapter 16

I included a few reading quotes that I found on Pinterest, and a few photos of my daughter.  I made sure to leave some of the pages blank, so that she could fill them in herself.

ahsang HKC onemorechapter 17

In one of the envelopes, I wrote a letter to my daughter, telling her how wonderful she is, and that I encourage her to read.  In the other envelopes, I left some blank cardstock pieces, and a few journaling tags for her to fill out or draw pictures about her favorite books.

I really love how this project turned out, and I can’t wait to see what my daughter does with it!  I hope you like my project, and I hope you are inspired to get crafty!  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Sunday!

You’re the best cards, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello crafty friends!  Today I’m sharing a couple of cards I made using the June 2018 Hip Kit Club kits.  I was challenged to use the Vicki Boutin stamps and dies from this month’s Color kit, and I decided it was a perfect opportunity to make handmade cards.

Here are the cards I created:

ahsang HKC VBcards 1

I used the Bazzill marshmallow white cardstock from this month’s Cardstock kit, which has a bit of weight to it, so it’s perfect for mixed media and coloring.  I used the HKC exclusive b&w plaid paper from this month’s Main kit, and the Pinkfresh Studio enamel dots from the Project Life kit.

I also used some past HKC color kits to make my cards.  I love getting the color kits, because you get so much use out of them!

Card 1:

For this card, I stamped the images on the Bazzill cardstock with Memento tuxedo black ink, and colored them with Copic markers.  Then, I die cut the flowers using the included metal dies and fussy cut the leaves and butterflies.  On the background, I used a stencil that was included in the April Color kit, and white texture paste that I mixed with a little Distress Oxide ink in the color Cracked Pistachio, which was included in the February Color kit.  It’s hard to tell in the photos, but I created a bit of an ombre effect, more color on the bottom fading to almost white on top.  I love the way it came out!

Card 2:

ahsang HKC VBcards 3

ahsang HKC VBcards 5

For this card, I stamped the images on the Bazzill cardstock with Versamark ink, and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder which was included in the November 2017 Color kit.  Then I colored in the images with Vicki Boutin watercolor paints, which were in the March Color kit.  I splashed some watered down white acrylic paint on the flowers.  Once dry, I die cut the flowers with the coordinating metal dies.  For the background, I chose the HKC exclusive b&w plaid paper.  I also added some pink and black enamel dots to finish off the card.

For both sentiments, I stamped the “you’re the best” sentiment from the Vicki Boutin stamp set, and heat embossed it with Versamark ink and white embossing powder on black cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out into a banner shape, and adhered it to my cards using foam squares.

That’s it for me today!  I hope I inspired you to get crafty!  Even though I used these stamped and colored images on handmade cards, they would totally work on scrapbook layouts too!

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.

ahsang HKC xoxo 4

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!
