Sweet Little 6 – BEA Valint

Hey Hip Kit Club fans! It’s so awesome to be here to share with you a layout that I have created with the lovely and colorful December Kits.

I wanted to document this cute photo of my little daughter taken at a dance class. I planed to create this layout so colorful and happy as her beautiful smile in the picture.

I used white cardstock as my base and added some colored texture paste behind my photo. To do this I mixed mint Heidi Swapp mist  with white structure paste, I grabbed my stencil from the December Color Kit and placed it on my layout. Then I grabbed my palette knife loaded with the colored structure paste and spread it across the top of my stencil. Once done I pulled up my stencil and allowed the cardstock to dry.

On the right side of my page I decided to layer some colorful pieces of patterned paper. To do this I trimmed some Take Me Away papers and Echo Paper, then layered them with some pieces of ephemera using foam dots.

I created my title with mixing and matching the letter stickers from the Kits, and arranged them vertical on my layout.

Can’t resist to add the cute Maggie Holmes tassels and acrylic shapes to my page, I mixed them with the Pink Paislee sequins and bow them to a tag. Although it looks like a lot of work, I promise you that taking the photos of the finished pages and writing up this post took me longer! 🙂

I hope I’ve given you some inspiration on how to use the lovely items and papers from the December Kits.

Happy crafting! BEA

MEET IRIT LANDGRAF… OUR NEWEST DT MEMBER…

Irit Landgraf Graphic

Hi! My name is Irit Landgraf, I’m 34 years old, married and mother to a sweet 5 year old girl. I was born and raised in Israel, and moved to Austria (no kangaroos here!) 3 years ago. Moving to a strange country has brought many changes and new experiences to my life, one of them was the discovery of scrapbooking. I started scrapbooking in 2011, and it has since become my favorite hobby and creative outlet. I love using color on my layouts, and have been having lots of fun with paints, watercolors, inks, and all things mixed media. I get to be creative and artsy and keep memories all at the same time,

I’m so excited to share my first design team project with you!  This layout has all the things that I love nowadays, some mixed media, pink, and shiny things… Almost everything here is from the September Hip Kits, but there are also a few items from the August Hip Kit (I mix and match kits all the time).  I started the page with a soft pink cardstock that came with the August cardstock add on. I used a dry baby wipe (a dry paper towel will also work, but the baby wipe is softer) to apply gesso to the background. That creates that subtle, almost cloud-like pattern. I then used a stencil and modeling paste to add more texture. I also added some gesso to the ‘shine’ Studio Calico wood veneer, just to soften the natural wood color a little. You can see all the stages of creating this layout on the process video. I hope you like it and that you’ll join me on Mondays for some more mixed media fun using our Hip Kits!

THURSDAY WITH AMELIE MORDRET…

Hi there!! Its Amélie here with you today sharing a new layout & process video that I created with our September Hip Kit and Add-On Kits. As I prepare to start a new project, I always choose my picture  first.  Then I find inspiration as I begin sorting through my Hip Kits to find products that will work well with my photo.  Once I have decided on my color palette – my layouts usually comes together quite easily.  The inspiration for this page came about a little differently…  it started with a sketch that I saw online.  What about you? What is your  creative process & where do you find your inspiration??   Please leave a comment below!  I would love to hear what you have to say.  I hope you enjoy my layout & process video.  Have a great week!  I will see you next Thursday with another project created with our amazing Hip Kits!  Bye! Amélie

TUESDAY WITH KALI BERTAZZON…

Hi there, its Kali here with you!  Today I want to share two more projects created with our fabulous September Hip Kit & Add-On Kits.  I used a photo from our summer vacation and I wanted to use products with blues and neutrals to create my page.  I decided add my photo and create my layout using the center part of page.  I think that the striped paper helps center the elements on my project.  I hope you like it!

September 30 LO 1

My second project for this week is this quick card that I created with our September kits.  I just love grey and pink with a touch of vellum!  I used these three things on this sweet card.  I hope that my projects this week have inspired you to create something with your Hip Kits.  Thanks for stopping by!  I will see you next Tuesday with another collection of projects.  Have a great week!  xo Kali

GUEST DESIGNER MONDAY WITH NICOLE JONES…

Hi Everyone!  Today I am excited to share a few more fun facts about our Guest Designer, Nicole Jones.  I thought it would be fun to get to know her better as well as to learn a little more about where she finds her inspiration for her projects.  I also hasharing a fun layout & process video created by our Guest Designer, Nicole Jones using our September Hip Kits.  Before we get started – I thought it would be fun to share a few more “Fun Facts” about Nicole, so you can get to know her a bit better.

  • Where do you find your inspirations for projects?
        • I find inspiration in so many places, the photos themselves usually gets my mojo
          going and then when I start playing with the products I totally get inspired. For the
          last year I’ve been scrapping with kits and that has inspired me to try new color
          combinations and page designs as I try to get the most out of my kits.
  • List 3 random facts about yourself…
        • Started a new career when I was forty as an Ambulance Dispatcher (9-1-1) and
          that was certainly a challenge
        • I taught Scrapbooking Classes for over 10 years
        • Started a YouTube Channel about 1 1/2 years ago and have over 310 Scrapbooking
          Process Videos uploaded
  • What is your favorite color combination?
        • Pink & Black
  • What is your favorite technique or scrapbook trend at the moment?
        • I am enjoying adding mixed media products to my layouts.
  • What was the last book you read?
        • One for the Money (Series) by Janet Evanovich
  • What is your favorite adhesive?
        • My ATG Gun
  • What is your preferred page size and why? 8.5×11 or 12×12
        • I only scrap in 12 X 12 because I feel that 8.5 X 11 just doesn’t have the real estate

Next, I am thrilled to share a brand new layout & process video by Nicole featuring our September Hip Kit. I love the layering she and tiny details that she added to her project.  Thank you so much Nicole for sharing your talent with us again this week.  Enjoy!  xo – Kimberly –
