Upcycling: DIY Gift Boxes | Jessica Fabiano

Hey everybody. It’s Jessica Fabiano with you today. I hope you’re doing well. Christmas is going to be here faster than we expect – and the days can get very busy. If you’re like me, having thought of all the presents and little goodies, but then realize last minute that you forgot to buy little boxes too…well, for those I have an idea: Upcycle some of your packages that you have at home! So much fun.

I used some old little boxes that I just wrapped up with the gorgeous paper from the Hip Kit Club November Kits.

Crate Paper has released their beautiful Snow&Cocoa line that’s full of mint green and pink and whimsical designs;  I love it!

First I painted my little boxes white; they came with an ugly print so I recommend doing that. Wait until it’s completely dry. Another advice: be careful using double sided tape! For some reason, my tape came off and I tore down all my white layers😦 that was annoying.

I added two gorgeous PL cards from the December Documented Kit ; Kim Watson designed them and I can’t believe how perfect they are. The puffy stickers from the  November Embellishment Kit  were added to the cards to bring in some more interest. Look at the sequins I used to make them the Christmas tree ornaments!

I hope you’ve had some fun joining me today!

I love the fresh colors, but even more that with the gorgeous elements you can give the magical christmas spirit to my projects.

I cut pillow boxes with Silhouette Cameo and then I embellished them with Hip Kit Club – ‘Tis the Season – Ephemera and Crate Paper – Snow & Cocoa – Ephemera pieces. You can even add monogram from one of the gorgeous alpha stickers from November 2016 Kits.

Funtime Holiday Cards | Tiffany Medina

img_1337dt

Hello everyone! Tiffany here with some fun little holiday cards using the November Hip Kits! I used a mixture of things from the Main Kit, Embellishment Kit and even my December Documented kit to create these cute cards. My initial inspiration for these cards were the 3×4 Project Life cards that came in the December Documented kit. I pulled out the cards that were Christmas themed and set those aside because I knew I wasn’t going to be using them in my non-holiday December Documented mini album. But I still wanted to use those cards for something, so I made a mental note to make some fun holiday cards for my friends with them.

Now, I think I used a total of two of those six PL cards that I had set aside on these cards. I made three holiday cards, roughly 4×6 vertical in size. I pulled out a few papers from the Main and DD kits and cut them down to A5 sized papers. I then scored the center and folded them in half to get my card bases. I was debating on using the pattern papers or the plain colored cardstocks for my bases, but ultimately decided on the pattern papers because the patterns were so lovely. I was mindful though of choosing papers that didn’t have bold patterns on them.

img_1288

The first card I worked on was the Christmas tree card. For the base, I used the Fa La La paper from the December Documented kit. There are a lot of holiday/Christmas sentiments on this paper, both on the front and the back, and I knew I was probably not going to use it in my DD album, so I decided to cut it up to use for these cards. For my main focal point, I used the Christmas tree card from the DD kit and decided to use the black and white side. I mounted that PL card on top of a piece of the Let It Snow paper from the Main kit. Before I adhered it down, I took it to my sewing machine and did a very messy single-stitch border around it.

After I centered and adhered it to the card base, I began to play around with those tree die cuts from the HKC exclusive ephemera pack that came in the Main kit. I also wanted to use the rubber  tree charm from the Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa paperclips, so I ripped it from the backing and used the tree charm over the die cuts that layered on top of each other. I wanted to create a little cluster of trees, but not cover the white tree on the PL entirely. I also liked how the rubber tree gives the card a little bit more dimension. I then accented the card with two puffy star stickers from the HKC exclusive puffy sticker sheet from the Embellishment kit as well as two of those word phrases from the DD cut apart sheets and the mint green sticker sheet, both also HKC exclusives.

img_1294

For the inside of the card, I pretty much left it as is. I did cut up a sheet of grid paper and glued it down on the right side, so that there was a place for a written note. I accented the bottom with the Christmas tree strip of the HKC exclusive washi strips that came in the Embellishment kit and another one of those tree die cuts from the HKC ephemera pack.

For the second card, I used the Crate Paper Rosy Cheeks paper from the Main kit as my base. I cut and scored the same way I did the first card, but I did something a little bit different for decorated the front. I knew I wanted to use that Fa La La card from the DD kit, but I liked both the black and white side and the pink side, so I decided to make a little pocket on the front to stick the card in. I had the idea of making this card be interactive. I liked the idea of the receiver of this card pulling out that Fa La La card to see a little note on the back.

So what I did was, I took a scrap piece of that Rosy Cheeks paper and a piece from the Snow and Cocoa ephemera pack that read “if snowflakes were kisses i’d send you a blizzard” and layered them on top of the pink side of the card. I just love that little sentiment on the ephemera piece! I think it’s so adorable and wanted it to be the little message on the back of the card. Once I had the little card done, I began constructing the pocket.

stopcard2

I used a piece of the B-side of the Cozy paper from the Main kit for the back of the pocket. I toyed around with two options for the actual pocket portion of the pocket. One was an mint blue ice skating piece from the Snow and Cocoa ephemera pack and the other was the “Winter Memories” kraft tag, also from the Snow and Cocoa ephemera pack. I ended up choosing the kraft tag and layered it on top of the Cozy paper, making sure to only glue down the side and bottom edges, so that I created an opening to tuck in the Fa La La card into. I embellished the tag with a bit of crochet string about the loop hole. I also used the branding strip of the Cozy paper and made a little banner that I placed over the bottom edge of the tag, putting the “Merry Christmas” phrase from the HKC cut apart sheets and two puffy dot stickers on top.

For the inside of the card, I did the same as I did with the tree card. I took a piece of grid paper, adhered it to the right side, and embellished the bottom with a washi strip from the Pinkfresh Studio Oh Joy pack that came in the DD kit and the polar bear stamp ephemera piece from the Snow and Cocoa ephemera pack.

For my last card, used the Let It Snow HKC exclusive paper from the Main kit as my base. For this one, I didn’t end up using a PL card. What I ended up doing was taking three pieces from the Snow and Cocoa ephemera pack and layering them on top of each other to get my “card.” I took the black and white “Brrr” banner and cut it in half. I adhered the top part to the top of the white “Snowmen Mittens Hot Cocoa Happiness” card and the bottom banner piece to the bottom of the white piece. I kind of created a cute little vertical banner of sorts. I then took the snowman ephemera piece and fussy cut the snowman out, to layer on top of the banner I just made. I made two banners from branding strips and tucked them vertically behind my main banner, adding a pink washi star and an asterisk from the silver glitter thickers over the corner. I finished off the card by adding the “It’s Partytime” phrase piece from the cut apart sheet on top of the snowman at the bottom right.

img_1312

For the inside I did the same as the others. I debated using vellum instead, cause the inside pattern is pretty white, but I thought the black dots would be too distracting, so I just used the same grid paper. I embellished this one on the top right with a washi strip from the Pinkfresh Studio Oh Joy sticker sheet that reads “Bring on the twinkle” and a few washi star stickers from the HKC star sticker sheet.

Below is my process video for the first two cards, the Christmas tree one and the interactive pocket card one. Be sure to check it out and I hope you all have a pleasant holiday season!

Creative Title | Jana McCarthy

Hello everyone, Jana here with a new Layout! My Theme for this week “creative title” … well, i had to think about it for a while. There is the word “dream” in the the Chipboard Sticker pack from Simple Stories and my first Idea was to use that as a part from my Title!
I searched for a matching Quote but i wanted to kept in simple and so i went with “dream BIG little you”

dreambig1

I used only a few colors here, a lot of white and light colors. This Layout is my last one with the October 2016 Kits and i am so ready for some Christmas feelings and the November Kits!

Frosty layout – Justyna Skowron

Hello all! How are you today? I have some super frosty layout for you!

dsc_3590

I really like pastels and when I opened the box with November kits I was over the moon! The papers designed exclusively by Kim Watson are pure perfection! So I decided to print a photo from last year’s winter with the first snow. It perfectly matched the colors of the kit and I decided to keep it in a rather cold tone.

dsc_3596

I was 100% sure I would cut out those wonderful trees from Crate Paper paper. I’m also in love with those cute rubber elements (I used almost all of them already!).

dsc_3597

I decided to use some 3D tape to make dimensions. What do you think? Do you like it? I used November 2016 main kit and November 2016 Embellishment kit.

I really hope you like it and you feel inspired!

Take care,

Celebrate 2016 With Irit

Hi! Irit here with a new project using the lovely November Hip Kit Club kits! My theme for this week is clever with punches, and here’s my finished project-

5

I started with creating my own stencil using a heart punch and a piece of cardstock from the cardstock kit. You can see exactly how in the video tutorial!

I also used punches to create dimensional embellishments. The gorgeous puffy stickers from both the DD kit, and the embellishment kit, as well as that adorable Crate Paper bear from the main kit, were the perfect addition to my custom embellishments.

HA! I am seriously getting into the Christmas mood…I mean how can one not after unpacking the GORGEOUS November Hip kits???

It is so pretty with amazing colors & fabulous exclusives…I am itching to get creating!

This is my first page…

Season of Joy by Kim Watson

kimwatsonseason-of-joyhkc01

For this page I used only the Main November Hip Kit kit. By keeping the color palette simple, I was able to create a more sophisticated vibe even though the elements are so whimsical.

A cluster in the top left corner of the page adds interest & draws ones eye to the photo collage. Plain paper glittered & diecut into a bow, star & tab shape add gorgeous bling.

Paper layers remind me of gift wrap…a little finger curling makes them nice & 3D.

Black borders around the photo adds emphasis & punch to the photos helping them to stand out. Sequins on top of punched snowflakes are a great way to fill space without clutter.

I love that adorable face! Just looking at this page has me humming carols under my breath! Now to get some Christmas shopping done LOL. Thanks for stopping by…I am so glad you did!
