Off the page | 3 cards | Nicole Nowosad

Hello everyone! I really like to make use of all the little leftover bits from my kits. Everything in the kits are so pretty, I just can’t help using every last piece. Why waste perfectly good paper right?

I decided to make a quick set of cards using some leftover bits of paper in the kits and love how quickly they came together and really stretched my supplies.

cards full

I started out with some flat white cardstock from my scrap pile. I added a few quick swipes of mint colored paint and once dried, I went to work building my simple cards. It’s always good to have a few extra cards in my stash!

First I created this super simple card with some scraps of the No.24 Pink Paislee paper in the kit.

xo card

I adhered various little strips of paper across the top portion of the card and adhered them down with a little machine stitching.  I also had some extra die cuts from the exclusive cut files for March and added some leaves behind the flowers from the Pink Paislee diecut/ephemera pack in the kit.

I love how the enamel dots just fill in pops of color on the rest of the card! Next, I created this easy card onto another mint green painted cardstock piece.

thank you card

I had to use some of that pretty Dear Lizzy washi tape as patterned paper on the card front and it looks amazing on the painted background! Man, I love that stuff. Such a pretty washi tape and looks great on a lighter background. I simply added another die cut flower, a border punched scallop strip and a Shimelle pennant sticker from the kit.

thank you cl1

I created one last card using more of that lovely washi tape in the kit and more of the pretty diecut flowers from the diecut/ephemera pack.

This time, I used some really small bits of paper and layered them in a stitched mess on the front of the card. The pretty rose gold flower (that looks black here.. boo) looks great mixed with the pretty pink floral background for the card.  I couldn’t resist adding more of those die cut stems from one of the March exclusive cut files again too.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to kill your kit and get ready for the April kit!

Thursday Inspiration with Terhi Koskinen, Flora Farkas and Renae Bowell

Hey there Hip Kit fans! Thursday is here, which means we have tons of inspiration for you. Today Terhi Koskinen, Flora Farkas and Renae Bowell are here to show what they created with Pink Paislee ‘Oh My Heart’ die cuts included to Hip Kit Club March Main Kit.

First Terhi shows her layout.

Hi there all! In addition to Pink Paislee die cuts, I wanted to feature the most gorgeous Pink Paislee ‘Oh My Heart’ Paper 24. It inspired me to cut it to pieces and then use the pieces to create the background for the layout. And as usual, it wasn’t ready like that and felt like it needed something extra. So I used the stencil and both Pasteez from March Color Kit, and created some delicious textures paper pieces to give some dimension for the layout.

All this is recored to a process video, enjoy watching! And don’t forget to scholl down. More inspiration is about to come with Flora and Renae.

Hi Girls! It’s Flóra here with two pretty spring cards. I used the March 2017 Hip Kits to create them. I choose some patterned paper and one very pretty exclusive Project Life Cards – designed by Kim Watson from Project Life March 2017 Kit.

I decorated both with Pink Pailsee – Paige Evans Oh My Heart Ephemera from March 2017 Main Kit. I really love the one with book theme.  I will give that one to my nice, who always asks a new book for every occasions. It will be a nice “accessary” next to an exciting novel.

I hope you like my cards! You can even make some from the leftovers. I am pretty sure friends will be happy to receive gorgeous handmade cards. Flóra

 

Hey Lovelies, rounding off the three beautiful designs today, I am here to share with you another way to play with your beautiful Pink Paislee – Paige Evans ephemera. This ephemera pack has been my favourite for a long time now. The beautiful bright pinks, yellows and florals are just heart melting (totally in a good way lol).

LAYOUT1

I have used this ephemera pack on every single layout and when it came to todays layout, well, lets just say I didn’t have a lot of options.. So I must confess, I did have to go into my own stash to find my extra pieces of ephemera and would you believe, they were the exact same pieces!! So with that in mind, I decided to do a symmetrical layout. I was going to create a wreath layout, but as you will see in the process video, it turns into something a little different.

IMG_0934

I absolutely adored that yellow floral and I was so excited to finally get to use it!! I love it as a background sheet, but its so bright, I wanted to tone it down a bit by creating a third cut and adding it to just the bottom of my layout. A simple vellum photo mat and some white cut files are the only white things I really used on this layout, so it was a little more challenging for me.

 

img_0935.jpg

From there, I just layered all my pretty ephemera around the photo, making it super easy and really quick when creating a layout like this. The yellow enamel dots sprinkled between the layers just added the most perfect continuation of yellow up the page. I just love how it looks like little balls of pollen floating in the breeze.

Thanks so much for dropping by Lovelies, I hope you enjoyed all of the creations that we have been able to share with you today. We would love to see what you create with your Pink Paislee Ephemera over in the Members Forum.. Don’t forget to join that group and share your latest Hip Kit Layouts. We love seeing them.

Love you guys,

Selfies

Hi! Irit here with a brand new layout I created using only the March 2017 Main kit! The Charm Thickers are so beautiful, I used them as a main element in my design. Having a ledger paper as my background is perfect for long titles, as they can easily be lined up. Here’s my finished project-

16_edited-1

I created my own letters from all the beautiful patterned papers in the kit, and added some stitching for detail and texture.

Embellishing was really easy, I cut one of the pretty floral pieces from the ephemera pack in the main kit in two and used it on both sides of my photo strip.

Here’s the video tutorial I created that shows exactly how all this came together-

Thanks for visiting and don’t forget to check out the HKC website for these gorgeous kits and more!

Sweet Friends | Nicole Nowosad

 

Good morning everyone! Nicole here again today to share a quick page using the March Hip Kits!

I really wanted to cut apart a title from the fun Dear Lizzy paper in this month’s kit and the rest went from there.

Sweet friends cl2

I decided to use one of the exclusive cut files available for March to go with this project and cut it from some plain white cardstock from the cardstock add on. I used the No. 24 paper by Pink Paislee in the kit to back some of the open flowers on the cut file.

Sweet friends cl3

This allowed me to add a few pops of color to the sides of the page, while still keeping it quite simple. I added some of the exclusive enamel dots to the centers of some of the diecut flowers and then finished my page with some great embellishments from the embellishment add on and main kit.

Sweet friends cl1

It’s pretty simple, but came together nice and easy with all the hard work done before hand in prepping the kits!

You can check out my process in this video here:

Thanks so much for popping by the blog this morning! Make sure to stop by later for more inspiration from the rest of the team!

This Is Us | Irit Landgraf

Hey everyone! Irit here with a new project I created using the lovely March main kit only! Here’s the finished layout-

The main kit is full of gorgeous papers and embellishments. I fussy cut flowers from one of the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day collection and used those as embellishments. I love using grid papers as background, because it is so easy to line up everything.

As usual, I created a video tutorial so you can see exactly how this came together!

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?

1

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.

DSC_8173

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.

DSC_8178

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.

DSC_8180

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 Using February 2017 Hip Kits @abstractinspiration #ziniaamoiridou #cratepaper #maggieholmes #wrmk #hipkitclub

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.

Envelope Pockets & DIY Embellishments Using February 2017 Hip Kits @abstractinspiration #ziniaamoiridou #cratepaper #maggieholmes #wrmk #hipkitclub

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.

February 2017 Traveler's Notebook by Zinia Amoiridou @abstractinspiration

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🙂

Memory Planning With Hip Kit Club Kits | Jennie McGarvey

Hello, Hip Kit Club friends and fans!  I am so excited to share with you how I am using the March 2017 Hip Kit Club kits in my MEMORY PLANNER!  Yes, you read that right, my memory planner.

Now, you might not be familiar with memory planning.  That’s okay — because I’m here to share with you mine.  I take my BIG The Happy Planner® and add my activities, then photos, journaling and embellishments.  It’s very similar to Project Life, yet different, too.

feb27-mar5HKC

I started with simple stamps from stash to document the plans + activities.  I kept the stamping as plain as possible so that the focus could be on the photos and great embellishments from the kits. I am particularly excited how the Pink Paislee Oh My Heart die cuts from the scrapbooking kit pair with the Pinkfresh Studio Live More phrase stickers from the Project Life kit.

IMG_0171

Those die cuts were definitely a staple on my pages, though!  I also found that they were beautiful with the Pink Fresh Studio Dream On studio puff stickers, too!

IMG_0173

I also love different clusters of embellishments, they definitely add a lot of interest to my memory planner pages.

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!

Sunshine by Nicole Nowosad

Hey everyone! Nicole here on the blog and happy to be back with Hip Kits! I am happy to share my first layout using the February kits.

I was inspired by the woodgrain background in the kit and wanted to add a subtle quilted look to my page using different patterned paper in the kits.

sunshine

 

It is a pretty simple layout, just some paper cut triangles added to the woodgrain Crate Paper background and stitched in place.

I couldn’t resist fussy cutting out lots of butterflies from the pretty Crate Paper in the kit and added some stitching to the centers to hold in place.

sunshine-cl3

You can see how the entire project came together here, in this process video I created using the February kits.

I hope you are inspired to do a little fussy cutting, stitching and patch work on your layouts! See you again really soon!
