Pure magic by Anna Komenda

Hello everyone. It’s my turn to inspire you today ūüôā 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.

Let’s Play Dress-Up

Hey everyone, Ashley here, bringing you another Project Life and Scrapbooking layout, using the March 2017 Kits!

This week, it’s all about dressing-up your Project Life Cards. I really try to do this during my normal processes but I totally stepped out of my comfort zone and used my own handwriting on some of the cards. This was a total scare for me!

I started by choosing my cards and adhering the photos down. I then began embellishing by adding a few stickers from the “Little by Little” collection, which came in our Main Kit, along with a few of the Pinkfresh Studio word and phrase stickers and the puffy stickers.

For my title card, I used those amazing Dear Lizzy thickers that came in our Embellishment Kit.

Even though I’m not too keen on my handwriting, I still love the way it turned out!

For my scrapbooking page, I created a tone-on-tone look for the background by using a piece of pink cardstock with Shimmerz Pasteez (Raspberry Sherbet) from our color kit!

I began layering underneath my photo and used all of the Thickers that came in our March Kits to create a long title. Again, I used several of the Shimelle Laine “Little by Little” stickers, and finally, added a few of the “Oh my Heart” ephemera from our Main Kit.

I hope you love the way this one turned out!

Cut Files & Mixed Media | Missy Whidden

Happy Monday, friends!¬† Missy here, and I’m just thrilled to be sharing my first layout using the new 2017 March Hip Kits!¬† Gorgeous doesn’t even begin to cover these goodies.¬† As soon as I saw this beautiful subscriber cut file designed by Kim Watson, I knew I had to use it on a layout.¬† I envisioned all those swirly clouds with some sun rays behind them.¬† I cut the clouds on white cardstock and then backed a lot of them with patterned papers from the Main Kit & Paper Kit and a few of the Project Life cards.¬† I also backed a few with vellum.¬† For my background, I drew some sun rays by tracing a sunburst stencil I have in my stash.¬† I used some of the new Shimmerz¬† Paste-eez from the Color Kit and mixed in some of the white AcriTonez from last month’s Color Kit and painted the rays in with a brush.¬† I embellished with die cuts and stickers.

I just love how this turned out!¬† I added fun foam adhesive under the cut file to raise it up and what a different it made!¬† Look at the shadowing and depth…I just love it.¬† I added that adorable die cut bird from the Dear Lizzy die cuts, and I fussy cut the word “LOVE” from one of the Shimelle patterned papers.

I machine stitched along the edges of all the rays using yellow thread.  This gives the rays a more crisp edge and adds some fun texture to the page.  I added a cute cloud sticker, which is from the Shimelle sticker sheet.

This beautiful floral sticker is also from the Shimelle sticker sheet, and I paired it with some of the Pinkfresh Studio bits…one of the Rubber Charms and one of the Leatherette Stickers.¬† I hand cut a tiny flower from the orange Project Life card to bring some of that color to this side of the layout.¬† I also used that beautiful Oh My Heart pink die cut frame as a layer behind the photo.

Here’s another shot of the cut file and the dimension.

I did add more watercolor behind my photo using more Shimmerz products from previous kits.  I used some blues, aquas and pinks to create some splotches and splatters peeking out from behind the photo.  I created my title using the fussy cut letters and that adorable die cut from Oh My Heart.  That little camera is from the Dear Lizzy die cuts pack.

Here’s my process video if you’d like to watch how I made this mixed media heavy layout.¬† It was surely a lot of fun to make!¬† I hope you get some ideas from it.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Enjoy your Monday!

Cut File Number Strips | Zinia Amoiridou

Hello scrappy friends! It’s Zinia here with a fun layout using the November 2016 hip kits.

img_1219-edit

So I had this idea for a while now and with the end of 2016 I found the perfect opportunity to use it. I designed some 3×4 number cut files for December, which you can find with all the other free cut files on the Hip Kits shop, so I decided to use them and cut 12″ long strips with numbers on the edge to use as my title “2016”.

The main thing you need to keep in mind is that each number will be on top of a pattern so you want to be careful with the patterns you chose. Preferably go for subtle designs and make sure each paper has a contrasting color to the paper next to it. This will help your numbers pop.

img_1227

Once I had that base set, everything else was a matter of embellishing. I chose two black and white photos to go at the sides of my page and then I finished my title using the gorgeous silver glitter thickers from the November 2016 Embellishment kit and some pieces from the Hip Kit club exclusive die cut pieces and puffy stickers.

img_1223

To help my photos pop I used some ephemera pieces from the Crate Paper “Snow and Cocoa” collection and also some of the exclusive number die cuts that came in the 2016 December Documented kit.

I also used a few of the exclusive vellum stars and washi strips from the Embellishment kit.

img_1225

I really hope you enjoyed this layout using the November 2016 kits. Make sure to stop by the HKC Facebook page and the HKC Member Forum for even more inspiration.

Until next time, happy scrappingūüôā

Merry Christmas! – BEA Valint

Hello everyone, it’s BEA here ¬†sharing my last layout using the lovely November Kits. Let me start this post by saying a Merry Christmas to everyone, and wishing you all a lovely time with your families! To be honest, Christmas is one of my favorite events to scrapbook.

merrychristmas

I started my layout with cutting a large poinsettia flower out of a white cardstock, and backed it with Crate Paper  patterned paper. I wanted to add more layers to my layout, so using a craft knife I cut out the petals on the inner side of the cut file, and folded up along the edges.

untitled-3056

I placed Lollipop cardstock behind the petals, it gave a pretty color effect to my page.

untitled-3033

I created a cluster at the right bottom using Hip Kit Club exclusive ephemera, Pinkfresh Studio mirror sticker and some fussy cut item. I really love how this page turned out!

Thanks for stopping by today! I wish you Happy Holiday! BEA

December Documented Pages and a Layout Using the December 2016 Main Kit Only | Adrienne Alvis

Hello, everyone!¬†I can’t believe Christmas is almost here, can you? Everyone is really excited around my house for the big event and I’m excited because I get to share some more of my completed December Documented pages with you, as well as a layout using the December 2016 Main Kit!

dd1

I shared the first part of my DD album earlier in the month so be sure and check out that post here. Once again, I used items from the December Documented 2016 Kit for my album, along with some other items from the November 2016 Hip Kits because they coordinated so well with the DD kit!

dd3

For this next round of pages in my DD, I used a few larger photos to fill the pockets and embellished directly on top of them using some of the number die cuts and puffy stickers from the ‘Tis The Season collection by Kim Watson.

dd4

dd6

I also used quite a few of the HKC Exclusive phrase stickers which are available in the November 2016 Embellishment Kit to accent some of my photos and to add extra emphasis and color to my embellished journaling cards.

dd7

Instead of including our family Christmas card in my album (it was too big to slide into a pocket), I took a photo of it next to the envelopes I had just addressed before I sent them  out to family and friends. This also helped me document the actual act of sending them out, so it was a win/win!

dd8

dd10

I also made sure to include a screenshot of the crazy cold weather we experienced last week in my album which I embellished using one of the die cut phrases from the ‘Tis The Season collection.

dd11

dd12

Next up, I have a layout to share with you that I created using the December 2016 Main Kit only…

helloyou1

I started by using the wood grain HKC Exclusive patterned paper piece from the Amber Star collection as my background and then fussy-cut the windows out of the Pink Paislee “Take Me Away” collection patterned paper so I could layer them around my photo.

helloyou2

I also used several of the Take Me Away collection ephemera bits from Pink Paislee to embellish around my page and I added some dimension and height to those pieces using some foam adhesive.

helloyou4

My favorite part of the this layout is the tiny tassels that I placed under the banner ephemera piece! I love how they add so much texture and dimension to my page!

helloyou5

I completed my design by adhering several sequins from the Pink Paislee Birthday Bash collection around my page and by journaling on one of the ephemera pieces from the Main Kit.

helloyou7

Make sure you check out my process video for this layout below and have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!
