YOLO | Anna Komenda

Hello everyone. I come to You with my fourth page created with March Hip Kits. My April kits are somewhere in the world on the way to my door step but I still have plenty of March goodies to play with. I created this page with dream catcher inspired by three feather stickers from “Little by little” sticker sheet. I wanted to use them in some project earlier but they just didn’t match my layouts because they are quite big. And now, as a feathers  attached to the dream catcher, they are just perfect. You can find Shimelle’s “Little by little” sticker sheet in March Main Kit.

I used pink cardstock from Cardstock Kit for my background. I backed it with one of the “Chasing dreams” papers. I love the pink – yellow color combo. I also fussy cut the roses and other small flowers from Dear Lizzy paper. All the patterned papers are included in both Main Kit and Paper Kit.

Roses with laves created beautiful layer under my picture. I chose the funny one taken with special app because it matches great with my YOLO title. And I wanted to use this golden YOLO from acrylic stickers by Pinkfresh Studio for a while. Those stickers and included in the Embellishment Kit.

I repeated the golden accents in the corner using another acrylic sticker along with banners from “Little by little” stickers sheet. My beautiful feathers also have a gold foiling on them.

My last steps was adding two cute cameras from “Lovely day” ephemera pack by Dear Lizzy. You can find them in Project Life Kit.

That’s all for today. I hope I inspired You to use a dream catcher theme on some of Your pages. Thank You for stopping by and see You in few days on Facebook.

XO Anna

Let’s Stay Home Daddy with Tarrah McLean

Happy Easter Hip Kit friends!

It’s Tarrah McLean joining you this Easter Sunday….sadly I don’t have an Easter themed project to share today but I have a cute layout to share instead! I challenged myself to only use the March 2017 Main kit to create this layout!

So I began by choosing some of the pretty papers in the March 2017 main kit, the houses paper by Dear Lizzy is so hard to resist!  I cut a circle in the geometric paper using my Silhouette Cameo and then backed the house paper behind the circle.

 My title consists of the Charm Thickers by Crate Paper found in the March 2017 Main kit…I used lots of the Oh My Heart ephemera by Pink Paislee/Paige Evans to layer and embellish around my photo…the exclusive enamel dots enhance the flower ephemera beautifully!

My niece is soooo photogenic! I am so glad I have her cuteness to scrapbook now! This photo of her with her Dad was taken when she was visiting me…..I bought her this cute outfit she is wearing and I wanted to get some cute shots of her!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Hip Kit Club blog today! I hope I have inspired you to pull out your March 2017 Main kit and create something pretty!

I hope you and your family enjoy a safe and Happy Easter!

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-

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!

Bouquet of Colors | Jessica Fabiano

Oh, how much I love spring and all the fresh flowers, I can’t even say! Today I’m sharing a spring inspired layout with you guys.

FullSizeRender(2)

 

I used a gorgeous free cut file from Bea Valint, click here to download it. I cut it out on the mint green fountain cardstock that we get from the cardstock kit; that way I can use up more of the yummy colors. I then colored in the florals using alcohol markers and cut them to how I considered it working best for my layout. I backed random sections with the beautiful papers we get in the March kits.

I love how the colors are flowing down from the florals! I used my own DIY mists for this – nice way to see all the colors that I previously mixed.

I used mint green and aqua colored paint behind my photo; not only does this complementary to orange make the rest of the colors pop, it also defines the overall fresh color range! Do you see that I don’t have a lot of dark blue there? The little bits I have are important to break the scheme a little and add interest. The dark blue is arranged in the visual triangle; now I must say that I prefer to work intuitively rather than really minding those concepts, but they do work and I think you should give them a try if you’re too insecure to let the mere process take lead of your choices, I know it can be overwhelming!

Isn’t the Dear Lizzy bunny just so adorable? I really wanted to use it despite not having an actual bunny themed picture. But who cares! The Match kits are so whimsical! Give whimsical a try 🙂

Home Sweet Home | Tarrah McLean

Happy Sunday Hip Kit fans!

It’s Tarrah McLean back with you again and today I am sharing a cute layout with you featuring the March 2017 Main and Add-On kits!

This week I was definitely inspired by all the cute elements from the Dream On collection by Pinkfresh Studio included in the March 2017 Hip Kits! I absolutely adore the rainbows and the houses! Theses elements teamed with the cute house paper from the Lovely Day collection by Dear Lizzy was a great choice for this layout about staying at home! I fussy cut some of those houses out and topped many of them with the triangle leatherette stickers from Pinkfresh Studio found in the March 2017 Main kit…they reminded me of cute roof tops!   

I used the amazing March cloud cut file designed by Kim Watson and backed the clouds with some of the dark blue paper for some extra pop of colour and to match the pants my nephew is wearing in the photo! I then layered them in and around the houses to create a fun home scene! The puffy stickers by Pinkfresh Studio in the March 2017 Project Life kit went perfectly 

My title this week is made up of the Charm Thickers found in the March 2017 Main kit and I fussy cut the ‘Sweet’ title from the Shimelle ‘Little by Little’ paper, also found in the March 2017 Main kit! I backed the whole layouts onto the pink/salmon cardstock and added some machine stitching for a little more interest as well!

I hope I have inspired you to give a layout like this a try using your March 2017 Hip kits?! Thanks for stopping by the Hip Kit Club blog today!

Happy creating!

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!
