Pure magic by Anna Komenda

Hello everyone. It’s my turn to inspire you today 🙂 I got my March kits few days ago and I just couldn’t resist diving into them right away. They are so beautiful and fresh. This is exactly what I need on my desk after a long winter. And have you seen March cut files? They are gorgeous too. Rainbow with clouds designed by Kim Watson is fantastic. I love using many colors on one page and what would be more perfect to do that than a rainbow?

I decided to use some soft background but not white because I used white cardstock from Cardstock kit to cut the rainbow. I chose light pink paper from “Chasing dreams” collection called “Royal”.You can find it both in Main kit and in Paper kit.

I colored the rainbow with watercolors and backed the clouds using blue cardstock from Cardstock kit. I aslo added a layer of vellum to soften up the clouds. Parrot and cute hot air baloons are in the perfect spot. They are both from “Lovely day” ephemera by Dear Lizzy. You can find them in Project Life kit. This ephemera pack is filled with beautiful, whimsical designs.

March kits are filled with rainbows. You can find them on every item from Pinkfresh Studio collection “Dream on”. I used this cute little rainbow from puffy stickers pack. I just couldn’t resist. I created a title by fussy cutting another beautiful paper from Main kit – “Encourage wonder” by Shimelle. This paper is a great source of titles and inspirations.

Those shiny hearts are gold acrylic mirror stickers and I love them. This is a product manufactured by Pinkfresh Studio and it gives great texture to the page. You can find them in Embellishment kit along with rubber charms.

I hope You like my page. I also have a process video for You 🙂

Thank You for stopping by and see You soon on Facebook.

Envelope Pockets & DIY Embellishments

Hello Hip Kits fans! It’s Zinia here to my last project using the February 2017 Hip Kits. I had so much fun using these kits and I created a bunch of different projects throughout the month but I’m really excited to start playing with the March kits as soon as possible.

This layout was pretty hard for me. My first couple of ideas didn’t really work out so it took some time and experimentation to get here. If you are curious about the whole process, you can watch the process video bellow:

I really wanted to use my envelope punch board to create some pockets and fill them with the beautiful Oh my Heart cut apart specialty paper that came in the Paper Ad-on Kit. I measured the cut apart pieces I wanted to use and I created envelops in the closest size. Then I cut off the top flap and turned them into pockets.

The embellishing part was much easier. I went for my go-to embellishment from this month’s kit, the butterflies. I also used a few florals from the Chasing Dreams sticker sheet that came in the Embellishment kit.

I also used the Color Kit to create some DIY embellishments. I mixed the AcriTonez with some heavy gel, spread them through the stencil and fussy cut them to create some lovely geometric hearts.

(During the photoshoot, my little assistant did a thorough check to make sure everything was good)

Before I go, I want to show you some more pages from my traveler’s notebook minibook for February.

February 2017 Traveler's Notebook by Zinia Amoiridou @abstractinspiration

In some spreads I tried to keep things very minimalistic. When there was an item I really loved, I didn’t want to stuff it on a busy page. I preferred using it on a simple spread so that it’s on the spotlight.

February 2017 Traveler's Notebook by Zinia Amoiridou @abstractinspiration

I really tried to implement as much stamping as possible. I really enjoy playing around with stamps in my traveler’s notebooks and this one is not exception. I absolutely adore the Oh my Heart stamp set that came in the Project Life kit.

I also used some interactive elements like this file folder to “hide” a goofy photo of my boyfriend and his valentine’s date.

February 2017 Traveler's Notebook by Zinia Amoiridou @abstractinspiration

When I’m working in my traveler’s notebook I always try to use the products that I wouldn’t normally use in my scrapbooking.  For example I don’t often use washi tape and tags on my 12×12 pages, so I made sure to include them in my TN and use them up in my lovely notebook spreads.

So these are my projects for today. I really hope you enjoyed them and you got inspired to create something with your February Hip Kits. Make sure to stop by the HKC Facebook page and the HKC Member Forum for even more inspiration.

Until next time, happy scrapping🙂

Hello Paris by Tarrah McLean

Happy Sunday Hip Kit fans!

It’s Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share using the amazing February 2017 Main and Add-On kits!

I have been blessed once with a trip to Paris a couple of years ago and I am super duper lucky to be going again in 7 weeks time! As soon as I saw that gorgeous Amour paper by Dear Lizzy I just knew that  I had to pull out a Paris photo!

I started out by cutting the geometric heart cut file from one of the pink patterned papers included in the February 2017 Main kit and backed it with that gorgeous Amour paper and then machine stitched around the outside. I used some foam tape to pop it up from the mint coloured background paper.

While creating this layout I was pulling out bits and pieces to embellish it with…I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the date on the globe sticker with the number 24 and then May and Wed really small…….THIS IS THE EXACT DAY WE ARE GOING TO PARIS!! We are getting the Eurostar across from England on this date! Can you believe that?! That sticker was made just for me and this layout!!

I love all the embellishments that refer to travel included in the February 2017 Hip Kits…they are just perfect for this layout! I also added one of those gorgeous fringed butterflies and a gold puffy heart by Maggie Holmes from the Chasing Dreams collection.

I absolutely love how this layout turned out and I hope I have inspired you to create some projects using some of your Hip Kits!?

Happy creating…see you next week!

Tarrah x

Fasching 2017| Irit Landgraf

Hi! Irit here with a new project I created using the gorgeous February 2017 kits. I used some mixed media to create a little sky scene on my layout. Here’s the finished page-

17

 I used some of the patterned papers in the main kit to create my clouds, and added some texture with paint and sewing. The Shimmerz paint that comes in the color kit is perfect for scrapbook layouts, as it has a matte finish. Other media like oil pastels, paint, pen or pencil, can easily be layered on top. My finishing touches were puffy stickers from the Paige Evans Oh My Heart collection and some gold accents by PinkFresh Studio.

Don’t forget to watch the video tutorial and see how this came together-

Thanks for visiting and have a great Sunday!

Inner animal by Anna Komenda

Hello Hip Kit fans. It’s Anna here with my second project with February kits. I am such a Maggie Holmes devotee. I love every single collection she designs and “Chasing dreams” is on the top of my “Fav list”.

Today I have a very pink page with my own pictures. I am an addict when it comes to those funny picture taking apps with filters, bunny ears and other fun stuff. I took so many of them that I decided it’s time to use some on the page. I chose “animal” session with several kind of ears 😀 Childish. I know 😀 Don’t judge 😀

Untitled

I love this bright pink paper with circles that came in February Main kit. It inspired me to use circle pictures as well. I used a puncher and it went really quickly.

2

What I also did was punching out circles from several ephemeras from “Chasing dreams” ephemera pack. I barely use the bigger ones in my projects and it was a nice way to alter them into smaller pieces.

3

Butterfly patterned paper is one my favourites. You can easily create Your own embellishments. Just fussy cut the butterflies. You can use only one or two or arrange them in wreath or other shape.

4

I also love “Chasing dreams” golden hearts. They are just so pretty and they are a perfect match with every girly project.

5

This page is so fun because of the pictures that it didn’t need much of embellishing. I used black elements to break the pink color. It also matches to my black and white pictures.

6

My last step was to splash page with white and gold inks to highlight the crazy, messy feeling. It was such a fun to create this page and it came so easy. “Chasing dream” collection from February Man kit is so easy to work with. As You probably noticed – I used Main kit only. I know that many of You ask about pages created with main kit only so here You are 🙂 I hope You feel inspired and see You next ween on HKC Facebook page.

XO

Anna

Happy, so happy | Kim Watson

As a subscriber you get the privilege of enjoying some fantastic exclusive cut files. This is one of them…The Fringed Butterfly. All I can say is WOW! The February 2017 kits are so, so pretty…the butterflies & the amazing colors, are what make this craft so much fun!

Happy by Kim Watson

kimwatsonhappyhkc01(For a detailed step by step on how I put this cut file together, be sure to watch my process video; see below.)

Starting with the cut file, but keeping in mind it would dominate a big portion of the layout, I started arranging things around the page. Tilting the butterfly to the left, left space plenty of space in opposite corners, which was how I solved where to place my photograph. kimwatsonhappyhkc02

I took the piece of ‘Oasis’ paper from Crate Paper & fussy cut a selection of roses suitable to fill the corners. The clusters, decorated with chipboard stickers & wood accents add to the bright, exotic feel of the page. I love how keeping them snug against the corners grounds the design without it looking too busy.

kimwatsonhappyhkc03

Fussy cut butterflies from Chasing Dreams were exactly what I needed to decorate the wings of big cut file butterfly. Using the x2 different sizes add dimension & balance. 

kimwatsonhappyhkc04kimwatsonhappyhkc05

I hope you have found this inspirational?  I had so fun creating it & I know you will too! Thank you so much for stopping by. Remember to grab our complimentary cut files to help you make the most of your kits.

Delight in Every Moment with Tarrah McLean

Hi everyone!

It’s Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing another new layout created using the February 2017 Main and Add-On kits!

This week I was very inspired by the circles on that gorgeous Oasis paper by Crate Paper. I punched out some of the circles and machine stitched through them to help attach them to the page as well as add texture to the layout too!

delight-in-every-moment

I used some of the gorgeous ephemera pieces from the Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper ephemera pack, found in the February 2017 Main kit as layering pieces underneath my photo, I like how these give a touch of colour and dimension to my layout. My photo is of my two beautiful boys taken at a weekend getaway we had together last year…we just loved this particular beach and could have spent hours there!

delight-in-every-moment-detail

I decided that the ‘Delight in Every Moment’ was the perfect title for this layout as it sure was a delight all round! It was delightful to be with my boys, the beach was delightful, the weather was delightful…you get the idea!

delight-in-every-moment-detail-2

I just love that cute camera sticker from the Chasing Dreams sticker sheet, found in the February 2017 Embellishment kit! It added some balance to the colours a little bit. I also added some of the pretty chipboard stickers to finish my layout. The last thing I added was some gold Heidi Shine for a little shimmer..

delight-in-every-moment-detail-3

I hope you have found some inspiration from my layout today! I had fun creating it! Thank you so much for stopping by the Hip Kit Club blog!

Happy creating!

Together | Tarrah McLean

Hi everyone!

It’s Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am excited to share my first layout that I have created using the February 2017 Main and Add-On kits!together-1

As soon as I saw the fringe butterfly cut file designed by Kim Watson, I knew I wanted to use this as my main feature on this layout so I cut it out on one of the pretty Crate Paper Oasis papers!  You can get this cut file for free from the HKC website, all you have to do is create a login and away you go!

together-1-detail

I added some machine stitching to the tops of the fringed parts and then placed foam dots underneath the main butterfly to help pop it off the page! I added lots of the different embellishments from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection including my title ‘Together’ from the chipboard sticker sheet.together-1-detail-2

I used one of the exclusive Project Life cards as a layering piece underneath my photo to help add colour and texture too! I couldn’t resist adding one of the mini fringed butterflies to the centre of the big one!together-1-detail-3

Those gold puffy hearts are to die for and had to make an appearance on this layout! Watch out for more projects from me with those babies added!

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

Happy creating!
