Summer layout, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!

Today I’m sharing a summer themed layout that I created using the Hip Kit Club July 2019 kits.  I was challenged to create a project using a cutfile, so I decided to use the free HKC subscriber cutfile from July 2019 called Circle Background.

I ended up copying the cutfile 4 times, resizing it, and molding it together to create a smaller circle background.  I backed some of the circles with pattern paper from the kits, keeping a pink yellow orange color palette.  I used foam tape behind the backed circle and adhered it to a sheet of white cardstock.

Since the background is busy, I didn’t want to over embellish.  I added my 2 photos, and the I placed the title right on top of one of the photos.

I added a few more embellishments around the photos…those summer themed HKC exclusive ephemera were perfect for this layout!

I trimmed down the white cardstock, and mounted it on a sheet of pattern paper from Pinkfresh Studio.  I added just 2 tiny strips of journaling to finish my layout.

I love how my layout turned out, and I hope you were inspired.  Don’t forget to check out the Hip Kit Club website, and take a look at the July and August 2019 Hip Kits!

3 monochromatic cards, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!  Today I am sharing 3 cards that I created using the July 2019 Hip Kit Club kits.  I was challenged to create monochromatic cards, and to include stitching.  I made 3 coordinative cards with tags, and lots of texture and dimension.

I have a coordinating process video on my YT channel if you are interested:

 

For my first card, I chose a yellow/orange color scheme.  I pieced together small strips of pattern paper to create a weave texture.  The background paper and puffy sticker sentiment is from Pinkfresh Studio, the paper strips are Bella Blvd and Webster’s Pages, and the flowers are HKC exclusives.

For my second card, I chose a pink color scheme.  The background paper is Echo Park, and the bird is fussy cut from Webster’s Pages pattern paper.  The tag paper, the fussy cut flower, and the puffy stickers are from Pinkfresh Studio.

Pearl Earrings, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey guys!  I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog today with a DT choice layout using the May Take Note kit!

We got Ruby’s ears pierced recently, and I wanted to document this milestone.  We got her sisters’ ears pierced when they were 4 1/2 months old, and we wanted to do the same for baby girl.  She looks so precious with her little pearl earrings!  I love it!

Trio of cards, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey friends!  Today, I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a trio of cards.  When I saw the cut file in this month’s Take Note kit, I thought they would make perfect sentiments for handmade cards.

I was really inspired by Kristina Werner, and tried this watercolor technique.  I love how bold and graphic my cards turned out!

a little farm moo-sic, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hello friends!

Today, I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a Tech Tip layout using the May Take Note kit.

I scrapbooked my daughter’s 1st grade music performance.  The theme was farm “moo-sic,” and the kids were so adorable!  My somewhat shy kid got a solo, and a speaking part too.  We are so proud of her!

“Happy BIRTHDAY to you” featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey guys!

Today I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a layout featuring their June Now or Never kit.

My oldest daughter turned 10…that’s double digits…in April!  Since I was so sick, because of the news I shared here, we celebrated with just a few school friends with manis & pedis, and pizza & Baskin Robbins ice cream cake at home.

Here is what I created to document this big milestone:

I love how it turned out.  This is exactly why I scrapbook.  I want to look back on these milestones, and I want my girls to look back as well, and remember how much fun we all had.

Happy Sunday y’all!
