Good Coffee | Kim Watson

I hope you are having a great day where ever you might be & are ready for a little creative inspiration? The September kits are so amazing, and are filled with some fabulous products, like the real wood medallions from Amy Tangerine found in the main kit. I was determined to use them on this project! See below how I did that.

Pretty paper layers, a little strip of left over printed vellum from last months kit, some paint splatter & chipboard frames were the starting point for this page.

For the title…I took a few of the Dear Lizzy Rub-ons & applied them to the wood pieces. The wood pieces then became part of little clusters including some of the pretty Crate Paper stickers found in the September Embellishment kit, A Flair button, cork sticker alphas & other rub-ons.

@HipKitClub @KimWatson @crate_paper @americancrafts The enamel sticker alphas add a gorgeous pop of aqua against the yellow heart papers & woodgrain.

Strips of washi tape from the embellishment add-on kit, add interest too! I love how Amy Tangerine washi included a few designs with gold foil…perfect for embellishing a teen page.

As you can see…the September kits are SUPER fun to create with. For more inspiration, be sure to watch the blog & Hip Kit Club facebook page, there are some fabulous projects being uploaded there everyday!

Have a great Monday!!!

Fave Family Memory | Nicole Nowosad

Hey everyone!! I was so excited to crack into the September kits last weekend! I managed to make a few projects, but just sharing the first one today 🙂

fave family memory

There are so many great colors in this month’s kit – I love all the blues mixed together with pops of fushia and bright yellow too! I used a cut file for one side of my page and layered pieces of patterned paper behind some of the open spaces and then balanced the other side with some papers from the Dear Lizzy Documentary collection that are in the kit.

I also wanted to give the wood slices a try that are in the kit! It is truly a unique embellishment… I was able to easily apply some of the rubons to the top of the wood piece and I do love how it turned out!

I finished off the page with a mixture of the great alphas in the kits!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and a Project Life Spread | Adrienne Alvis

Greetings Hip Kit fans! I have one last layout that I created using the July 2015 Hip Kits and a Project Life spread that I created using the new August 2015 kits to share with you this morning…

girls1

For this layout, I wanted to go big and bold with my title and my embellishments so I added several of the large cork stickers from the July 2015 Embellishment Kit at the top of my layout and on each side of my photo.

girls2

I used some of the woodgrain Thickers from the July 2015 Project Life Kit for my title and placed it on the right side of my page.

girls3 girls4

I also layered several of the wood veneer pieces from Heidi Swapp (available in the July 2015 Project Life Kit) on my layout to help direct attention towards my photo and around my page.

I couldn’t wait to start using the August 2015 Hip Kits that I got in the mail last week so I created a Project Life spread for Weeks 29 and 30 to share with you as well!

1week29&30

Week 29

1week29

I used the journaling and filler cards from the August 2015 Project Life Kit for this spread and added embellishments from the other August Kits because they go together so well and really help me coordinate and balance out my spread.

4week29

2week29

I used my vintage typewriter to type my journaling on the journaling cards and I used the gold Dear Lizzy Thickers from the August 2015 Embellishment Kit on both sides of my spread to announce the week number and dates. Using the same letter stickers throughout your spread is a great way to keep your PL pages coordinated and have a consistent design flow.

Week 30

1week30

I love adding chipboard and puffy stickers directly to my photos on my Project Life spreads. When I crop my photos for my pages, I like to make sure they have plenty of white space for adding extra embellishments like this.

I hope I’ve given you lots of inspiration today! Be sure and post your creations using the amazing Hip Kits on our Facebook Member Forum and stop by the blog later to see what Missy has created!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Love this Pup | Kim Watson

Hello…hello friends!

I have one more page to share before I crack open my July box which is waiting patiently on my desk…although I do admit, I have found it so hard not digging in there. I have resorted to looking in the box at least once a day, although it isn’t enough…haha. One cannot deny the pull of new craft stash, LOL.

Love this Pup by Kim Watson 
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @crate_paper @pinkpaislee @americancrafts #scrapbookingkit #layout #papercrafts #12x12 This page capturing my little boy & his adorable ‘Schnaffy’ puppy. She came into our lives quite by chance & I am ever so glad she did. She transformed a strictly ‘NO-PET’ family, into a gooey bunch of doggie lovers. I know the page isn’t strictly embellished in the traditional pet themed way, but hey…one has to think out of the box sometimes with gorgeous accents & papers like these at one’s finger tips. I love how the fun colors & funky designs make for an eye catching page design.
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @crate_paper @pinkpaislee @americancrafts #scrapbookingkit #layout #papercrafts #12x12 My layout was inspired by the super cute frames & ephemera from Crate paper, they were just calling to be layered together with these adorable photos. The wood veneer & enamel dots create perfect visual triangles within the page design.
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @crate_paper @pinkpaislee @americancrafts #scrapbookingkit #layout #papercrafts #12x12 These pretty layers make me so happy!! Die cuts…colorful stickers, chipboard & a hint of glitter….perfect for any page theme.
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @crate_paper @pinkpaislee @americancrafts #scrapbookingkit #layout #papercrafts #12x12 The Embellishment Add-on kit has an adorable camera stamp included. Stamping it in the magenta Avery Elle ink included in the Color Add-on kit makes for the cutest of accents. Teamed with wood veneer, stickers & other accents…makes for an adorable cluster.

Pages like this are so easy to create with perfectly co-ordinated kits like Hip Kits.If you aren’t already a subscriber…I urge you to take a look at the August kit & Add-ons….they are drop dead gorgeous!!!

J & A | Adrienne Alvis

Hello everyone!  I have a layout to share with you today that I created using the July 2015 Hip Kits

1J&A

Even though the July kits are packed full of colorful papers, embellishments, and accents, I decided to go a little more monochromatic with this layout.

2J&A

I started by following the lines and cutting out hexagons and star shapes from the Crate Paper Poolside Lawn Chair Patterned Paper (available in the July 2015 Paper Kit) and then I layered the stars on top of the hexagons for a fun twist. I also hand cut several of the words from the October Afternoon Swimming Pool Patterned Paper and placed them inside some of the polka dots from the opposite side of the same piece of paper.

3J&A

I layered several more items and embellishments to the top of the stars and around my photo and placed my journaling in a chipboard sticker frame from Crate Paper.

4J&A

I added gold embellishments and the cork sticker shapes from the July 2015 Embellishment Kit because they coordinated so well with the woodgrain pattern in the Lawn Chair paper.

5J&A

I love how versatile the July 2015 Hip Kits are! Whether you want a lot of color or just a few pops here and there, these kits have it all! Thanks for dropping by this morning!  I hope you have a great day.

Float-Michelle Wedertz

Hello! Michelle here, starting us off on this last week of July with a new layout using the July Kits!

Today I am sharing a project featuring both a new fave photo and a new fave color combo.

Float

Lately I have found myself gravitating towards the color combination of aqua/turquoise and yellow. These last few weeks, these colors have been front and foremost in my mind and my pile of layouts can attest to this. Lucky for me, the July Kits are full of these colors!

Float 2

The polka dot paper, yellow frame, and clouds are a match made in summer!

What colors are you loving right now? Are you super specific like me or are you all over the rainbow? Whatever your colors of the moment are, make sure and share your projects in our Member Forum on Facebook–we would love to see them! Wishing you a great week!

Oh, Hello-Michelle Wedertz

Hello! Michelle here with you today to share a new layout using the beautiful June Kit and Add-Ons.

As I went through the contents of the kit after having unboxed them in record time, my eye was drawn to pretty much everything, but there were a few colors and embellishments that really got me excited-the navy blue; the cork pieces/words from Crate Paper; the kraft tags from Fancy Pants; the Evalicious Wood Veneers; and the silver Thickers. These all ended up being the main ingredients in my layout as you can see here:

SONY DSC

The addition of the dark, navy blue to the softer color palette is just so pretty and it really brings the focus right to the heart of the layout-the words, the photo, and the title.

SONY DSC

I had found that the kraft tags and the warm yellow really complimented the colors in my outdoor photo, so I made sure to include them as I was putting my layout together.

The silver Thickers from the Embellishment Kit are probably my favorite single item. They are not too shiny and they really provide a nice contrast to the other colors in the kit-I can definitely see myself reaching for them again and again!

Wishing you a great day and looking forward to seeing your projects with the June Kits pop up in our Facebook Member Forum!
