SWEET HEART LOVE – CENTRAL DESIGN LAYOUT – RENAE BOWELL

Hey Lovelies, Nae here back with my very first layout and process video for you. I have been so patient waiting for my HKC box of goodness flying across the oceans to reach me here in Australia. When I opened that box, Oh My Goodness, inspiration over flow!! So many amazingly beautiful products, I had absolutely no idea where to start.

fulllayout1

So, to get started with my first design here on the team and my very first Hip Kit ever! I decided to stick to a layout format that I generally use. I love central designs with nice bold fonts. The gorgeous paper by Shimelle’s Little By Little collection was just screaming to be fussy cut and used as a focal point on a layout. All of those beautiful bold words, the typography lover within me was singing from the rooftops.

thirds.jpg

I love to centre my layouts in the middle third. I am sure most of you have heard about the rule of thirds in some kind of design in your lives but if you haven’t, divide you layout into three equal rectangles, that middle rectangle is where I like to focus my designs. If you work in thirds on your layout, include embellishments in three clusters on your page, you will always be able to achieve a balanced design layout.

Another feature of my layouts are soft layers like doilies and polka dot tulle but I also love adding in white die cuts to add a little bit of interest. I am a huge lover of white on white on white in my designs but today I decided to do something a little different and use the pretty pastels in the Cardstock Add On. The soft mint green is just so beautiful and still adds that pretty soft layer but in just a slightly different hue. The cut file I am using is one of the wonderful March cut files, designed by the beautiful Jana, You and Me. The vines and leaves in this cut file are just divine and are something I use a lot in my designs.

When creating embellishment clusters between my layers behind my photo, I love mixing textures as well as colour. The beautiful gloss of the Shimelle sticker sheet, the dimension of the rubber charms, the softness of the Pinkfresh Studio Puffs and the leather like textures from the Pinkfresh Leatherette Stickers, all come together to create more interest and dimension without cluttering up my page with big bulky icons. I tend to stick to smaller embellishments, that tend to work with the colour scheme already decided in my designs.

IMG_0702

Finally, here is a little process video to share with you how the layout all came together. Like I said, working with the blues and greens was a completely different experience for me. As much as I loved creating this layout, Ill be back next week with a more pink layout.

Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my first ever Design Team Project. I would love to see your rule of thirds or centred layouts using these beautiful March Kits. Jump over to the Facebook group to share yours!! I can’t wait to see them all!

Love you guys,

Love always,

Nae xoxo

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!

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.

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.

Let’s Get Painty: Layout Influenced by Art | Jessica Fabiano

Hello friends. Did you know that I love art? I am sure that some of you feel the same. During my studies at university I focused on abstract paintings and I sometimes let my love for art influence the way I scrap. Have you heard of informalism (Art Informel) or Abstract Expressionism? Perhaps you’d like artists like Bernhard Schulze, Michel Keck, or Britt Bass Turner to inspire you to pull out your paints and get started, too – because that’s what they do with me. Here’s the layout I created for today:

fullsizerender92

 

The February 2017 Hip Kits are stuffed with gorgeous colors, patterns and a BUNCH of embellishment. I love paper  – but embellishment is what makes me roll. As you can see, I started off creating a bold painty background. The color add on of this month comes with the Shimmerz Paints Acritonez acrylic colors (magenta, white, blue). I mixed the white and magenta to achieve the pale pink look on the left side but added some red color to the magenta for the darker shades on the right side. This creates depth and interest. I tried not to let the colors blend as they were still wet on my surface – this is just a preference; blending makes it softer and more natural, not blending makes it bolder. I also prefer boldness in abstract art. It looks very easy but it requires a lot of practicing – I find that I often blend the colors more than I want to. I still have lots of room for improvement after so many years!

fullsizerender94

Once my color was dry, I added white sandy texture paste using the gorgeous color add on stencil. Did you check the February downloads? Zinia’s gorgeous heart cut file was so much fun to use and matched the stencil perfectly. I cut it using a pale pink sheet of paper from the cardstock add on. I also added some pink mist on top of the heart to give it more depth. To make it a bit more interesting I backed random sections of the heart with Maggie Holmes’s Chasing Dreams paper. Then I added in the fun embellishments mainly from the Oh My Heart Puffy Stickers by Pink Paislee (Paige Evans) and also some of the Shimelle wood buttons. So so cute!

 

fullsizerender95

 

I love those dynamical cyrcles that we can often find in abstract paintings – I used several shades of pink for this section of the layout. I also added a golden puffy fabric heart and a little phrase sticker.

 

fullsizerender97

I love how the mint green pops on top of the pale pink. Those colors make me happy!

Sweet dreams | Anna

Hello. It’s Anna here. Today I want to show You layout created with April 2016 kits.

When I received my april kits I thought that they would be perfect for scrapping some sleepy pictures. I was inspired by the stars and other “night” themes from Shimelle “Starshine” collection and exclusive paper designed by Kim Watson. I even had a perfect star cutfile to work with. All I was missing was a perfect picture.

I had this cute photo session of my newborn daughter Maja. I just had to choose one cute picture and turn it to black and white because I didn’t want to bring additional colors to my page and Maja was sleepeing on a vivid green blanket.

1

I wanted to create a night sky on my page so I decided to paint it by my own. I used a watercolors and a lot of water and I painted the Moon (or something similar 😉 )and the starry sky. When everything was dry I started to embelish my page.

DSC_9092

First I created a composition behing my photo. I used a blue tissue-paper, that my kits were wrapped in. I added a piece of exclusive paper from Main Kit and stars cutted with Cameo. I also used few “Star shine” transparent stickers from Embellishment Kit.

DSC_9096

Big “awesome” word it one of the Pinkfresh Studio acetate words from Main Kit. I used an alcoholic ink to paint it in some dark navy color.

DSC_9094

“Star shine” paper clip and  word stickers from Project Life Kit were like a final touch to my page.

DSC_9085

As You can see You do not need much to create a rich page.

If You are curious how I created this page or You would like to create a similar one, I have a process video for You too 🙂

That’s all for today. See You next week on Facebook.

Trendy way to add 8 photos to your layout!

Today being “Focus on Photos”day was the perfect opportunity to scrap a selection of everyday photos. These eight, were captured from a typical store visit when the children were younger. Mundane was never an issue for us when when needing to buy groceries…these two were always up to some sort of mischief. I am so happy with my choice to freshen up this multi photo page by printing them in 2” square photo strips.

Extra Special . Happy . Family Time by Kim Watson

KimWatson+Extra Special+HKC04

Using the fun April kits, I selected orange, yellow & pink accents, that when placed on the Elle’s Studio patterned paper, created a soft ombre effect. Notice how I followed the vertical pattern on the paper when laying out the page elements? It gives the page a fabulous graphic feel. By laying vellum strips on the base page along the stripes & attaching them with zigzag stitching and placing embellishments in little clusters, I was able to soften things nicely.

KimWatson+Extra Special+HKC02

Looking for a great way to add visual interest? Try positioning rubber charms, sticker labels, wood veneer accents and resin badges in horizontal positions off the  photo strips, like little flags, breaking the obvious vertical lines.

KimWatson+Extra Special+HKC03

A mixture of hand written journaling, pre-printed text from the Pinkfresh Studios washi pack & typed text…really mixes things up for even more page interest. Everyday memory keeping doesn’t have to be ordinary. Try my idea of B&W photo strips for a fresh take on multi photo scrapbooking.

Thank you for stopping by. Happy Monday!

The easiest way to make a mini – Bea Valint

Hello there, it’s BEA here today to share with you a mini flip-flap album that I created using the amazing April Kit.

When I was assigned to create a minialbum for this week, instantly I knew I had to scrap about our latest trip in April.  We had the opportunity to travel to Amsterdam to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. It was a wonderful experience for us especially the beautiful tulip fields and the Van Gogh exhibition. And of course it is a great reason to scrap all about it.

minialbumsilhouette

I love the flip-flap albums, but to tell the truth I never enjoyed measuring with ruler, so I decided to create a Minialbum cutfile for my Silhouette. Yay, no ruler, no pencil, no scoring board, just embelishing and enjoying my album 🙂

You can check here how does it work:

So I cutted my album from a white cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and filled the shaker box with the little acrilic stars and than I stitched the shaker box and the pockets.

untitled-8218

For embellishing I can use only thin elements, the Amy Tangerine washi-tapes, rub-ons and Shimelle emphetera and Pinkfresh Studio epoxy stickers were just perfect for this projects. For adding my long title I played with the Pinkfresh Studio Yellow Puffy Alphabet Stickers from my main Kit.

untitled-8226

You can download the cut file of this minialbum by clicking here.

Make sure to check out my process video for this minialbum:


Thanks for coming by the Hip Kit Club blog, have a look around — there is plenty of inspiration.
