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.

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

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

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!

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!

Here’s my layout-

A Masculine Layout Using the February Main Kit Only | Adrienne Alvis

Hello, crafty friends! I’m here today with a masculine layout that I created using the February 2017 Main Kit only…

golden1

My youngest son turned 10 on February 10th, so I was really excited to document his special golden birthday! I had just received my February kits so I challenged myself to create a masculine layout using the Main Kit only and I must say I love how it turned out!

golden2

I began by taking the Spring Break patterned paper from the Oasis Collection by Crate Paper and cutting it into thirds. I placed the middle strip down my page vertically and adhered it to a piece of white card stock, but you can’t tell that from my completed layout because I changed my design halfway through my process (and you can see how that happened in my process video at the end of this post). I layered different strips of patterned paper from the Oasis Collection by Crate Paper along the edges of the middle strip and used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges.

golden6

It wasn’t until I was trying to figure out my title placement, which I created using the lovely gold glitter Thickers from the Main Kit, that I decided to turn my page 180 degrees and go about my design horizontally instead of vertically. I used some of the Shimelle wooden buttons and Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams gold foil Thickers to create small embellishment clusters around my page. I also added three of the puffy hearts from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams Collection for even more texture and dimension. They were so fun to use and are some of the cutest embellies that I’ve seen in a long time!

golden7

I journaled on one of the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams Collection ephemera pieces and tucked it under one of the smaller strips of patterned paper at the bottom of my layout. Be sure and check out my process video below to see how my whole page came together and how I altered it halfway through.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend! xoxo

DIY Vellum Embellishments & Circles | Zinia Amoiridou

Hello Hip Kits fans! It’s Zinia here to share with you a really fun layout I create using the January 2017 Hip Kits.

img_2747-edit

The general idea for this layout can be created using just the main kit. In my layout I cheated a bit and used some embellishments from the embellishment and the project life kit but if you are subscribed only to the main kit, you can definitely make it work and use some different embellishments.

To begin, grab your favorite pattern papers from the kits and punch 1″ circles. You can use different sizes of circles if you want and adjust the design accordingly but I really loved how the 1″ circles are not too big nor too small for this page. This is a really great design to make use of any little leftover scraps you had from previous layouts.

img_2759

Arrange the circles in three columns and stick them on a piece of white cardstock. That will guide our main design.

To start embellishing get a sheet of vellum from your Cardstock add-on kit and  transfer some of the butterfly rub-ons on it. Use your scissors to fussy but the butterflies and create some adorable DIY vellum embellishments.

img_2758

To stick the butterflies on the page, fold them and place a little bit of adhesive in the middle. This way they will add a really whimsical feel and some extra dimension to the page.

img_2755

I continued embellishing using some word strips from the Project Life kit and a few floral ephemera pieces from the Main Kit until I was happy with the result.

img_2760

For my title I used a mix of different stickers and alphas across the kits. To balance the gold thickers I used, I added some gold splatters using my Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray.

img_2753

I really hope you liked this page and you got inspired to create a similar design with your January kits. Make sure to stop by the HKC Facebook page and the HKC Member Forum for even more inspiration.

Until next time, happy scrappingūüôā

Ombr√© Foam Words | Zinia Amoiridou

Hello Hip Kits fans! It’s Zinia to with another layout I created using the gorgeous December 2016 hip kits.

img_1895-edit

One of my most favorite products that were included in the December kits is the Amy Tangerine Thicker Phrases pack. I really love the font and the size and all the cute words that are included. So I decided to play around with it and have some fun.

I placed a few of the words on a piece of plastic and I used my watercolors to paint a gradient from pink to purple to blue to mint. I wasn’t really precise with it, I just kept adding color and brushing it on till it blends nicely. In the end I had to dab off a few areas that had some excess color to help the drying process.

img_1899

Once the thickers were relatively dry, I moved them on my page. I decided to work on white cardstock and create a light and fresh page. The ombre thickers are going to cover the left side of my page and then on the right I created a fun cluster of embellishments.

img_1902

I tried to use a bunch of my favorite embellishments from the December kits. I cut a piece of the glitter ribbon that came in the Embellishment kit and I created a wavy banner. I also added one of the exclusive flair buttons and some of the adorable mini tassels to add extra dimension.

img_1901

Above that I placed my photo and I layered a few piece of paper behind it. I also added some tabs and tags to peek from the side.

img_1904

I really enjoyed creating a lighter page than usual. It really helps the thickers pop and makes the whole design look beautiful.

I hope you enjoyed this layout as much as I did. Make sure to stop by the HKC Facebook page and the HKC Member Forum for even more inspiration.

Until next time, happy scrappingūüôā

Hello, 2017! | Adrienne Alvis

Hey everyone! I’m sharing a Project Life spread and my first layout using the January 2017 Hip Kits with you today…

First up, I created a title page for my January 2017 Project Life album using the January 2017 Project Life Kit!

titlepage1

I’m doing a 9×12 album size again this year and will continue to document my spreads monthly. This format worked very well for me last year and was a huge timesaver! Plus, this size also helps me keep my albums down to just one a year, taking up less (limited!) shelf space in my craft room. As you can see below, I chose several of the HKC exclusive Project Life cards from the PL¬†kit¬†and layered some lovely embellishments from Pink Paislee and from the American Crafts One Canoe Two collection on top of them.

titlepage2

I chose to use a few recent family photos for my title page and layered two of the Heidi Swapp Instax Golden chipboard frames that are available in the January 2017 Main Kit on top of the smaller photos. The rose gold effect looks stunning paired with the blues and pinks that I used for my color scheme!

titlepage5

Next up, I have a layout that I created using one of this month’s cut files (available here¬†and a subscriber perk!) as the base for my design.

girls1

I cut out the cut file using my Silhouette from a piece of the Pink Paislee Moonstruck patterned paper #11 that’s available in the January 2017 Paper Kit and layered it on top of another piece of patterned paper from the American Crafts One Canoe Two collection.

girls3

I placed my photos on top of the cut file that I elevated using some foam dimensional adhesive and then placed several of the flower ephemera pieces from the Moonstruck collection by Pink Paislee around the photos of my daughter and my nieces that was taken on Christmas Day.

girls4

For an even bolder effect and to add some extra dimension, I fussy-cut flowers from the January 2017 Leaf and Flower Printable sheet and layered them around the existing flower pieces. I scattered a few of the HKC exclusive Frolic vellum heart stickers around the cut file for an added pop of black and white.

girls5

I just love how this layout turned out and how the colors in the photos pop against the mint, pink, and black and white accents! Be sure and check out my process video for this layout below!

Thanks so much for joining me and I hope you have a great weekend!
