Hello, 2017! | Adrienne Alvis

Hey everyone! I’m sharing a Project Life spread and my first layout using the January 2017 Hip Kits with you today…

First up, I created a title page for my January 2017 Project Life album using the January 2017 Project Life Kit!

titlepage1

I’m doing a 9×12 album size again this year and will continue to document my spreads monthly. This format worked very well for me last year and was a huge timesaver! Plus, this size also helps me keep my albums down to just one a year, taking up less (limited!) shelf space in my craft room. As you can see below, I chose several of the HKC exclusive Project Life cards from the PL kit and layered some lovely embellishments from Pink Paislee and from the American Crafts One Canoe Two collection on top of them.

titlepage2

I chose to use a few recent family photos for my title page and layered two of the Heidi Swapp Instax Golden chipboard frames that are available in the January 2017 Main Kit on top of the smaller photos. The rose gold effect looks stunning paired with the blues and pinks that I used for my color scheme!

titlepage5

Next up, I have a layout that I created using one of this month’s cut files (available here and a subscriber perk!) as the base for my design.

girls1

I cut out the cut file using my Silhouette from a piece of the Pink Paislee Moonstruck patterned paper #11 that’s available in the January 2017 Paper Kit and layered it on top of another piece of patterned paper from the American Crafts One Canoe Two collection.

girls3

I placed my photos on top of the cut file that I elevated using some foam dimensional adhesive and then placed several of the flower ephemera pieces from the Moonstruck collection by Pink Paislee around the photos of my daughter and my nieces that was taken on Christmas Day.

girls4

For an even bolder effect and to add some extra dimension, I fussy-cut flowers from the January 2017 Leaf and Flower Printable sheet and layered them around the existing flower pieces. I scattered a few of the HKC exclusive Frolic vellum heart stickers around the cut file for an added pop of black and white.

girls5

I just love how this layout turned out and how the colors in the photos pop against the mint, pink, and black and white accents! Be sure and check out my process video for this layout below!

Thanks so much for joining me and I hope you have a great weekend!

All Smiles | Raquel Bowman

Hey everyone, its Raquel here today sharing my latest layout with you using my December kits. For this layout today I decided to create a page for my Son documenting a special little everyday moment that I wanted to record.

My son is two and it was becoming a struggle to get him to brush his teeth daily. He simply didn’t like doing it, whether I did it or encouraged him to brush, it wasn’t an easy task. The moment I am documenting is photos taken on the day that I had a bit of a ‘lightbulb’ moment and decided to make brushing fun by buying him a battery operated Spiderman toothbrush. As you can see from the photo – we didn’t have any trouble getting him to brush his teeth again. If the truth be told, I have had to tell him to stop brushing them a few times as her wanted to brush them multiple times in a day, ha. Winning!

Here is the layout I created: All Smiles

all-smiles

I thought the title of ‘all smiles’ from the Amy Tan Thickers pack was perfect for this page. It is clear in his cheeky grin that it is a smiley page, but also because the documenting is all about his pearly whites. To help the white foam pop off the page, I backed it on one of the Take Me Away Pink Paislee patterned papers. I also adhered it to the page with a foam tape. I love the shadow the title provides. I knew I wanted to add a fair bit of journaling and tell my story, so I thought the mirrored swirl would act as a nice transition into the journaling.

all-smiles-2

Because the page was documenting multiple photos I added small clusters to either side of that group of photos. In this grouping I added one of the November cut files by Irit, cut from one of the kits exclusive papers. And also I added an asterix thicker, exclusive ephemera, a Pink Paislee clip and small embellishments that provide that finishing touch, like the mirrored circles and Heidi puffy stickers.

all-smiles-1

Here you can see the cluster to the left of the photo. The details tab is just there for an added embellishment, but yep, all the details are in the journaling.

all-smiles-3

I am a little addicted to adding these gorgeous Crate Paper tassels to every page I create. This one coordinated with my colour palette nicely and I was able to wrap and tie it to the star cut file.

all-smiles-4

I used my typewriter for my journaling and cut it out in strip form. I wrote in third person -a bit like a story for something different. To finish the journaling and help balance the page and reinforce the design idea of visual triangles, I added smaller embellishments to the bottom right of the journaling. all-smiles-45

I wanted the photo of my son and his big cheesy grin to stand out more than the other two photos so I matted it onto the yellow from one of the Pink Paislee papers and adhered it with foam tape to the page. The whole mat of photos on the woodgrain paper is also adhered with foam adhesive. it really helps those photos pop. all-smiles-7

I hope you have enjoyed this layout today and found it inspiring. It was fun to challenge myself to create a multi photo layout about my son from what predominately could be said to be a more girly themed kit.

COCKTAIL FUN + LAYERED CARD | FLORA MONIKA FARKAS

Hi there! It’s Flóra back. I hope you are having a lovely day. Today I am going to share with you two projects made with the gorgeous September 2016 Hip Kits. The first project is a 12″ scrapbook layout. I grabbed this pretty American Crafts – Flamingo Cardstock from the September Cardstock Kit and use it as my base. As the first step I created random sized gold circles with negligent machine stitching.

girl-fun-scrapbook-layout-with-hip-kit

Then I placed my two photos. Just few words about the photos. I documented my Mom with her very first cocktail what we had on her birthday at seaside at the beautiful sunset. Such a sweet memory.

But back to the page. I used the XOXO Maggie Holmes Gather die cut, other chipboards and Pinkfresh Studio – Indigo Hills – Wood Veneer flower from the September 2016 Main Hip Kit.

september-2016-hip-kit

I think the Crate Paper Cute Girl chipboard elements from the September 2016 Embellishment Kit perfectly fit to my theme. They give the sparkling party atmosphere to my layout.

crate-paper-cute-girl-chipboard

I also added Crate Paper gold phrases, I love how they shine on my layout. In the end I complete my project with Simple Stories – Posh – Enamel Dots and Pinkfresh Studio – Indigo Hills – Hearts from September 2016 Project Life Kit.

heart-chipboard

My second project is a pretty card. I used few layers as a background. To soften the patternes I added a piece of vellum on the top of the layers and sew around with golden threads. My title is a cut file designed by Kim Watson and was cut out with Silhouette Cameo. If you are a suscriber you can download it from the Hip Kit Club site.

card-with-hip-kit-cut-file

I just added to my card Simple Stories – Posh die cuts from September 2016 Project Life Kit. I adhered them with foam tape you they pop out. In the end I decided to add more romanticism, so I adhered a lace strip at the bottom of the card.

That was it for today. I hope you like my new projects. See you soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Using Large Photos and a Project Life Spread! | Adrienne Alvis

Hello Hip Kit Club fans! Grab a cup of coffee or some tea and get comfy because I’m here with not one, but TWO projects to share with you today that I created using the gorgeous September 2016 Hip Kits! First up, I have a layout that I created using a super-sized photo…

happyplace9

I rarely ever scrap a photo larger than 3×4, but since my challenge was to “supersize it”, I decided to go big or go home with a 5×7 photo of our campsite that I took this past summer. Since my photo was scenic, I decided to position it near the bottom of the layout and layer my title and lots of embellishments around it to help draw the eye down my page.

1happyplace

I used a combination of the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Gather collection Thickers (available in the September 2016 Embellishment Kit) with one of the chipboard stickers from the same collection that are available in the September 2016 Main Kit for my title. I placed part of it on and above my large photo so it would look more cohesive with all of the other layers on my page.

happyplace2

I added lots of dimension and texture to my page by layering many of the Gather ephemera pieces from Crate Paper, along with some of the Simple Stories Posh Bits & Pieces that are available in the September 2016 Project Life Kit, along the side edges of my photo and up towards the top of my layout. I also added various pieces of patterned paper from the September 2016 Paper Kit so I could add more color and patterns to my page. I also placed several of the Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills Wood Veneer Paper Clips in the layers of ephemera as well for even more added texture and color.

happyplace7

I really love how this page turned out and how well the larger photo looks with the big title and pretty embellishments from the September Kits!

happyplace1

Next up, I have my Project Life spread for September 2016 to share with you…

1septemberpl

I used many items from the September 2016 Project Life Kit to complete this month’s spread such as the HKC exclusive PL cards, the Dear Lizzy Saturday Wood Veneer Words, and the Simple Stories Posh Enamel Dots.

2septemberpl

I also used some of the Simple Stories Posh Bits & Pieces from the PL Kit to accent several of the exclusive PL cards. I just love how well the colors from the PL cards coordinate with the other items and embellishments in the kit!

3septemberpl

5septemberpl

I now use a 9×12 album for my Project Life spreads and I document them by the month instead of weekly, so I like to keep everything as cohesive and flowing as possible. The Hip Kit Club PL kits are always so helpful in doing this because everything coordinates so well.

7septemberpl

I added several of the Maggie Holmes Gather Gold Phrase Stickers (available in the September 2016 Embellishment Kit) on top of my photos to bring out the golden color in my color scheme and to accent my journaling which I typed directly onto my photos.

8septemberpl

Well, I hope I’ve given you LOTS of inspiration on how to use your September 2016 Hip Kits today! Be sure and check out the HKC Facebook page and member forum for even more inspiration using the kits!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous day!

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!

You light up my life | Anna Komenda

Hello Hip Kit fans. It’s Anna here with my last inspiration with April 2016 kits. I squeezed them like a lemon creating about 12 projects. And I still didn’t killed them.

1

My inspiration to create this layout were june cut files designed by Kim Watson. This bulb is just adorable. And I really like the inscription too. I had that ode to use vellum and create kind of a shaker pocket. I filled it with glitter and sequins. I used one of the Amy Tangerine’s “Better together” papers from main kit to cut my bulb. I wanted it to be light and airy.

DSC_9598

I didn’t have much choice with my background papers as I already used most of them in my previous projects but this Elle’s Studio “Little momets” grey paper was just perfect. Luckily I had a paper add-on kit so I could stretch number of projects created with the kits.

DSC_9601

Oce again I used butterflies from Maggie Holmes “Bloom” collection paper. I fussy cut them and placed them on my page. Wooden jar from MME wood veneers set from Project Life kit was also a perfect match with lovely picture of my daughters. I took it more than three years ago but it feel like it was yesterday. Time flies so fast. Too fast.

DSC_9602

Acrylic little stars from Embellishment kit are so cute. I had few left so I added them on my title. I love the texture they add to the page.

DSC_9604

That’s all for today. My may kits arrived yesterday and now I will dive into them with a real pleasure. I have so many ideas what to make with them so stay tuned for the next week.

See You on Facebook.

xoxo Anna
