Good life | Anna Komenda

Hello everyone. It’s Anna here with my last inspiration created with July 2016 Hip Kits. I have a layout and a card for You. They are both filled with exclusive items designed by Kim Watson.

I created my layout using a lot of fussy cutted flowers. I acually cut whole paper to get all the flowers I could. I chose one of the papers from the Main Kit called “Crazy daisy”. The flowers have this artsy touch. I used them to create a frame around my picture.

Untitled

Frame created with flowers is quite busy so I needed come calm patterns for my background. I combined Illustrated Faith paper with another exclusive one designed by Kim. I used a lot of 3D foam squares to layer the flowers and other elements.

My title is created with words from exclusive ephemera pack designed by Kim Watson. You can find one in Main Kit and one with the words in Embellishment Kit.

DSC_1796DSC_1798

I finished my composition with wood veneers form Fancy Free collection, some exclusive flair button and few little chipboard stickers from Becky Higgins. You can find them in Project Life Kit.

My second project for today is a card. I thought that it would be fun to create one using exclusive washi tape sheet from Project Life Kit to add a colors and patterns.

I also had few flowers left after I made my layout. I added them in three spots along with an exclusive puffy sticker from Embellishment Kit. And the bonus is that I used the rest of washi so no waste of precious embellies 😀

That’s all for today. I will be back to You next friday on Facebook.

Thank You for stopping by.

OH what FUN – BEA Valint

 

Hey, friends! BEA back with you today, and I have a new layout featuring the 2016 July Hip Kits! The moment I opened my July kit, I knew one of my layout I wanted to make would be on this gorgeous Sunset Blush paper! I just adore that gradient so much, it gets me a sweet summet feeling!

adventureboat

For this week my brief was ‘Supersize it’, so I started my layout with stitching a big boat in the middle of the page. My sons love sailing and every sea sports. They spended all our summer vacation on the board! I filled the stitching with the dotted Fancy Free patterned paper. I could use differents sizes of the paper for the sails and for the boat.

untitled-0051

I created a cluster to the left of the page. To do this I combined a HKC exclusive ephemeras with puffy stickers and Bella Blv. Chipboards. Just perfect!

untitled-0053

My second project is a card I created from the beautiful ‘Painted Dreams’ exclusive patterned paper.  I decided to cut some hearts out of the paper randomly, and look, how beautiful are they!!! Once I cut them out, I arranged them in the middle of my card and sew on a piece of wellum. I add my title by using the shiny AC glitter stickers. I just love how it turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by the Hip Kit Club blog today!

So happy together | Anna Komenda

Hello Hip Kit fans. It’s Anna here with some new layout created with July 2016 Hip Kits.

First I want to tell You a little about what I do when my mojo is low. It’s one of my few methods and it can be used with kits or paper collections. I just pick one or two colors that are present in the kit / collection and I choose every single element that fits my color scheme. I run through papers, ephemera packs, stickers and I group everything in one place.

1

This is what I did with July kits. First – I chose this gorgeous ombre blue exclusive paper designed by Kim Watson. I really liked it and wanted to use but I didn’t have any particular plan. I checked exclusive ephemeras pack from Main Kit and Embellishment Kit looking for some blue / white elements. I put them in one place. Later I decided that I will add a little bit of silver by using Freckled Fawn puffy metallic stickers.

DSC_1643

When I decided of a color palette I walked through my printed photos (I always print more pictures to use in future projects) I chose two that matched my paper. White Bella Blvd. chipboard stickers were also a perfect match with my photos and other stuff.

DSC_1650

I wanted to add some subtile detail to the background so I took a vellum sheet from Cardstock Kit and cut heart background using  July “I heart this” cut file designed by Ashley Horton. Teal glitter was some stronger, eye catching accent that I decided to add too. “Fancy free” wooden elements were covered with teal glitter so I used them in my composition.

DSC_1651

Project Life “High five” little chipboards were like cherry on the top for my layout. You can find them in Project Life Kit.

And that’s all. Really fast and simple, even when Your mojo is low. I encourage You to try this “go monochromatic” method to high up You mojo and strech Your kits.

Gettin’ Crazy with Text and Alphas | Adrienne Alvis

Hello and happy Tuesday, crafty friends! There are so many lovely alpha sets, word phrase ephemera, and text bits in the July 2016 Hip Kits that I just had to create a long title for this layout that I have to share with you today!

adventureawaits1

I used one of the July cut files designed by Ashley Horton, cut it out from the B side of the “Ombre Sky” patterned paper, and layered it on top of the “Art Class” patterned paper from The Happy Life collection and then positioned my photo to the left side of my page.

adventureawaits3

Next, I added some Bella Blvd Ciao Chip phrases, available in the July 2016 Main Kit, for part of my long title and then placed a mix of HKC exclusive puffy alpha stickers and the American Crafts foam Thickers, available in the July 2016 Embellishment Kit, for the rest of it.

adventureawaits4

To make positioning different alphas in a long title easier, I used a clear ruler and placed  the letter stickers on it so I could hold it over where I thought I might want them to go before I committed to sticking them on my page. This is a very helpful trick for me!

adventureawaits7

After I was satisfied with my title placement, I layered several punched circles from some of the journaling cards, available in the July 2016 Project Life Kit, and placed them on my page so I could make embellishment clusters out of them. The ephemera phrases from the HKC exclusive “The Happy Life” collection came in handy to add extra color and depth to my page.

adventureawaits2

I also added several of the Happy Life and Freckled Fawn puffy stickers to my page so they would pop and give off a more whimsical vibe.

adventureawaits5

I hope I’ve inspired you to use lots of alphas and text phrases on your next layout! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Fun with Ephemera…and Froyo | Andrea Bethke

Hi Everyone! It’s Andrea again, and today we will be having some fun with ephemera and the July Hip Kit Club kits! First, let’s talk a little about ephemera. I love ephemera! I am always using ephemera in my scrapbooking.

06-HKC-Froyo-LO-2016-07-30-with-banner

There are a few different kinds of ephemera. There is the kind that you get from the places you go…like a ticket from a movie you went to, a map from Disneyland, a menu from your fave restaurant, that sort of thing. Then there is the kind you collect that reflects the things you like to do and your style…like me, I like to collect vintage ephemera like antique and retro Valentines Day and Christmas cards, and also vintage Disney ephemera. And then there is the kind of ephemera that comes in a scrapbook collection. This is a kind of “faux” ephemera, if you will, but I love it just as much as the other kinds and it is always the embellishment in a scrapbook collection or kit that I find myself using the most! I was super excited this month to see that both the July Main Hip Kit and the Project Life Kit had exclusive ephemera packs in them!

01-HKC-Froyo-LO-2016-07-30

So today I want to share with you a scrapbook layout and a pocket page that I made for my project life album using lots of ephemera! I wanted to document a recent trip my hubby and I made to our fave Froyo place! I wanted to use ephemera from both of the July kits and a couple pieces of actual ephemera from the Froyo place. Project Life albums are a perfect place for your ephemera — they help complete the story of your daily life along with your pictures.

03-HKC-Froyo-LO-2016-07-30

Anyways, I wanted to use the different kinds of ephemera in different ways. As you can see, some I used like stickers, some I clustered up, some I doodled on, and some I layered. I decided to add some stitching to some of my ephemera layers and clusters too.

08-HKC-Froyo-LO-2016-07-30

And, as you can see, I also did some hand stitching on my page with a large heart embellishment I made, with some criss-crossed blue thread and a piece of the Bella Blvd patterned paper from the kit, in order to reflect the “good life” ephemera in the adjoining pocket page.

10-HKC-Froyo-LO-2016-07-30

17-HKC-Froyo-LO-2016-07-30

I layered some of the exclusive Hip Kit ephemera up underneath a picture on my layout to show you how ephemera can also be used as a kind of mat for your pics.

09-HKC-Froyo-LO-2016-07-30

The ephemera in the kits can be used flat, or you can pop them up to add more dimension, like the little ephemera flower on my page that I popped up with foam dots on top of a button to make a really cool, dimensional embellishment.

14-HKC-Froyo-LO-2016-07-30.jpg

I also want to point out how I used my “found” ephemera as well — as you can see, I used the little “Mickey’s Froyo” advertisement by just slipping it into a pocket. I added the “oh what fun” ephemera piece from the exclusive ephemera pack in the main kit and a little bow paperclip from the kit to just add some more interest to my found ephemera.

16-HKC-Froyo-LO-2016-07-30.jpg

And for the small “Mickey’s Froyo” card, I just added it to my exclusive Hip Kit Project Life journaling card (where I wrote my fave froyo flavors) with another one of those cute bow paperclips from American Crafts. This way, it is easily removeable — a kind of interactive element in your project life album. I hope that I have inspired you to use some ephemera in your Project Life Scrapbooking today and that you will have as much fun with the exclusive Hip Kit July ephemera packs as I did!

July kit Guest Designer: Zsoka Marko

Please join us in welcoming our creative, July kit Guest Designer to our blog today, Zsoka Marko. We are super excited to showcase her amazing & super colorful projects using the gorgeous July kits & cut-files. For her full bio see the bottom of this post.

Hi there scrappy friends, Zsoka here with you today to share my first projects as a guest designer for Hip Kit Club using the 2016 July Hip Kits! I am so excited and honored to be here! Thank you Kimberly and Kim for the opportunity!

I don’t know about you but I have a weird process when it comes to my Hip Kits. Normally I always work on one project, but when I receive my Hip Kits, they are so full of goodies that I have no idea what to start with. Then I pick something, start working and about half an hour in, another idea comes to my mind…then another…Not to forget them, I start on those projects too. So I work on about 3 layouts at the same time!

Explore Lausanne by Zsoka Marko

20160717_191101FINALbannerW852

I started off with Kim’s house cut file but this layout actually ended up being the 3rd I finished because it just didn’t want to come together. I cut it from kraft card stock because I never use kraft and wanted to do something different. I backed the file with one of the exclusive papers that had different color rectangle shapes on it. But the whole thing turned out too pastel for my taste, and I can’t handle pastel. There. I said it. I love my bright colors!

20160717_191138FINALbanner

So after I finished another two layouts, I started with the house cut file from scratch. I cut it from white card stock this time and then painted it with different Shimmerz paints from this month’s and previous months’ color kits. Then I sewed it onto another exclusive paper with the most amazing water color print on it. I raised the middle square (I modified the cut file to have a solid square in the middle which you cannot really tell from the photos), I put several layers of papers and Project Life cards there, some on pop dots so that my photos stand out more.

20160717_191113FINALbanner

I also did some machine stitching there. Then added different embellies from the gorgeous exclusive ephemera pack and the Project Life chipboard stickers. I also used a Pinkfresh Studio stamp from my stash to add some black accents. For my title I used a die cut from the ephemera pack and those fabulous lime green alpha thickers (lime green is my favourite color so I was pretty happy when I saw them in the kits!).

20160717_191126FINALbanner

20160717_191150FINALbanner

For my smaller projects I decided to create some really quick cards that somehow match my layouts, either in colors, or topic.

Enjoy card by Zsoka Marko

20160716_105702FINALbannerW852

There were 3 houses in the ephemera pack so it was kind of obvious that I’d go with those for my card! I used white card stock for the base, then glued a scrap piece of paper in the middle. I punched some circles for the background, did some machine stitching, and added my houses. Some I put on pop dots, because I don’t like flat designs so much. For the title I used another die cut from the ephemera pack (also popped up) and added 2 pieces of chip boards, et voila! Possibly the quickest card I have ever made!

20160716_105724FINALbanner

Together by Zsoka Marko

20160717_160111FINALbannerW852

For the second layout I am sharing today I welded a circle with the middle of Ashley’s heart cut file. If you know my work, you know how much I love circles…I then backed it with that beautiful water color paper I used as a background for my houses too, to back my cut file and then did a bit of machine stitching again. I put the circle on pop dots so it stands out. I also wanted to use the chevron cut file from Ashley, but instead of cutting them as solid chevrons, I wanted only the outlines so I could back them with different papers.

20160717_160133FINALbanner

Then I arranged them around my circle. Again, I layered some PL cards, papers and one of the Heidi Swapp frames behind my photo to give it a bit of height. For my title I chose a chipboard word from Bella Blvd, rubbed some gelatos on it (I saw this technique done by Missy first and I can’t stop using it, it’s so pretty!!!). It didn’t stand out from the background so I doodled on it with a black pen.

20160717_160148FINALbanner

I normally go with a lot of embellishments on a layout but here I only used a chipboard sticker and a die cut from the ephemera pack. I’m only noticing this now that I’m looking at the photo ha!

Go See Do card by Zsoka Marko

20160717_160333FINALbannerW852

For my card going with this layout I used a white card stock base again. Then I adhered another piece of white card stock on it, which I previously sprayed with some Shimmerz from the June color kit.

20160717_160339FINALbanner

20160717_160347FINALbanner

I then used the scrap pieces of chevrons I had left from my layout (see, not throwing away anything!), did some machine stitching and added my title for which I used the exact same technique as for my layout. Another quick and easy card!

Hope you like my first projects! Stay tuned for more! Thanks for stopping by! X

A little bit about our creative guest designer:

I’m Hungarian but have been living in Germany for almost 12 years with my Dutch boyfriend and our 7-year-old son. I’ve been crafting all my life but scrapbooking I only started early 2015 after my disc surgery to take my mind off of the constant nerve pain (still there to this day). I haven’t stopped since! I hope this craft will finally stick with me for good unlike the others!

At the moment I am honored to be on the Scrapbook Werkstatt, The Cut Shoppe and Scrap Our Stash Design Teams and I also have guested for Pink Paislee and Shimelle, and have been featured in Scrapbook Expo.

Adventure | Christin Grønnslett

Hello everyone. Christin here today to share with you my first layout with the July 2016 kits.  This summer we haven’t gone on big adventures. just smaller ones like going fishing and my grandma’s house (she is 94 years old and is still living at home )

christin gronnslett  Fisketur 001a

Sorry that I forgot to take a picture of my background, but I can explain a little what I did.  There are three different kinds of colors/paints in the kit (Shimmerz Paints and Dylusions Paints) and I just mixed them with water and together to get different shades of grey or keep the yellow to match the green grass in the photo. That way I felt the orange in the photo could stand out much more.  To get some contrast in my background I used distress ink with the Stencils in the July 2016 Color kit.

When I do layers I like to either go tone on tone or create contrasts so the different layers don’t get lost.

christin gronnslett  Fisketur 005

For my title I painted the white Bella Blvd title with black distress stains to get a more watercolor effect.

christin gronnslett  Fisketur 004

A few more pictures. When I work with layers I often prefer to mix the different shapes, I don’t like to have all my layers square but mix with round edges, circles and other shapes to make it a little more interesting.

Beautiful Blooms! | Adrienne Alvis

Hello, Hip Kit Club fans! Today I’m sharing a layout that I created using the July 2016 Hip Kits. I was really inspired by the gorgeous HKC exclusive patterned papers designed by Kim Watson and by today’s “beautiful bloom” theme for my page.

hellosunshine1

I split the difference between the two beautiful exclusive patterned papers by cutting them in half and layering the floral piece over the yellow piece. I placed the photo of my daughter in one of the photo frames from the HKC exclusive Color Me Happy Word Stickers (available in the July 2016 Embellishment Kit) and placed it toward the bottom of my page. To continue with the “beautiful bloom” theme, I added lots of lovely floral puffy stickers and die cuts from the Color Me Happy ephemera pack that is included in the July 2016 Main Kit.

hellosunshine2

I also added several of the Amy Tangerine Happy Together rubber charms around my photo for added dimension and color pop. I filled the middle of some of the flowers on the patterned paper with puffy stickers and one of the exclusive flair badges, also available in the July 2016 Embellishment Kit.

hellosunshine5

I completed my page by sprinkling a few different colors of spray ink around the yellow patterned paper side, including the Shimmerz Coloringz “Don’t Citron Me” non-shimmering mist available in the July 2016 Color Kit, along with several of the HKC exclusive acrylic dots for a fun and textured finishing touch.

4hellosunshine

There are so many beautiful bloom inspired papers and embellishments in this month’s kit! I hope I’ve given you some inspiration on how to use some of them today!

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Love to party | Anna Komenda

Hello Hip Kit fans. It’s Anna here with my last project created with may kits. Today I want to show You mini pocket album that I created during live stream on my YT channel. You can watch the recording here >>> click.

I used Studio Calico 6*4 inch pocket album and filled it with pictures from my daughter’s third birthday party.

DSC_9767DSC_9771-001

I mixed pictures with exclusive cards from Project Life Kit and papers from Main Kit. It’s and eclectic mix of big variety of embellishments. sequins and alpha stickers.

DSC_9777

I didn’t embellish the cover of the album so I decided to create a “welcome” page. I used “3” as it was third birthday party. The baloon from exclusive puffy stickers from Embellishment Kit was a perfect match to the party theme.

DSC_9778

I created a lot of sealed pockets filled with sequins and glitter. I used Fuse tool to close them but You can also use the sewing machine.

DSC_9781DSC_9783

Little wood veneers from Jillibean Soup from Project Life Kit were just perfect as a confetti type filling of my pockets.

DSC_9792

I also loved the exclusive puffy alpha stickers that were included in the Main Kit. The navy color is just gorgeous.

DSC_9796

I also used the acrylic arrows as a filling of my pockets. They look good from the both sides so creating a shaker pocket was really easy.

DSC_9826

My favourite piece in all the kits were exclusive ephemeeras designed by Kim Watson and chipboard stickers from Illustated Faith. They were both included into the Main Kit.

DSC_9852

And last but not least – mini placements from Jillibean Soup included in the Project Life Kit. You can use them in so many creative ways. They are white so You can color them. they are 3*4 size so they are perfect for Your PL albums.

Those are only few pages of my album. It You are curious how it all looks together, You are welcome to watch the walkthrough video.

 

Thank You for stopping by and see You next friday on Facebook.
