Our Adventure Together - Hip Kit Club

Hey hey hey! It's almost the weekend, so I'm sharing the layout that I made for Hip Kit Club at the beginning of the week.  This layout is the last one I'll be making with the July Kits because my August Kits arrived this week!  For this layout I was working with a sketch and moodboard created by Ashley Horton.  I loved both of them and used them as my jumping off point to get started!

So here is the sketch and board that I worked with this week:

And here is the layout that I created using these as inspiration!

Of course I also created a process video to go with it, so be sure to check it out and see how I made my layout!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have an awesome scrappy day!

No Rain No Rainbows - JustNick Studio

Hey everyone, I'm back showing another layout that I created for JustNick Studio using her amazing cut files!  This time I used 2 cut files for my layout, one for a background and one for a title.  For my title I used the file No Rain No Rainbows and for my background I used the Confetti background.  I used watercolours to create a funky multi-coloured effect on my title, and I backed my confetti file with a multi-colour paper to get the effect of a rainbow of raindrops!  I kept my embellishments simple for this layout since I had such a bold title going on that I didn't feel it needed too much more.  By keeping my photos black and white they don't compete with all the splashes of colour and every piece just compliments each other!  Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop over to her shop to check out all of her files and her new releases, and make sure you scroll to the bottom of my blog post to get your code for a freebie!!!

Here is my process video, hope you enjoy!

Pssst. . .  did you stick around?  Great!  So don't forget to pop over to the JustNick Studio shop to get your hands on this cute cut file!  Use the code ALPHAFREE at the checkout!

Is She A Good Witch? - Hip Kit Club

Hello hello hello I'm back :)  Here we are already headlong into August, and it's crazy!  On Saturday I celebrated my 12 year wedding anniversary with my awesome hubby.  We had a blast together and enjoyed some much needed child-free time together :)  Of course the next day I was right back into the thick of it working on my projects for the next week.  I really wish I could get ahead of my projects, but I guess I'm doomed to be a last minute scrapbooker!

Well, lets get into it then!  Here is my layout for this week for Hip Kit Club.  I am using the July Hip Kits again for this one, and I still have so much left!  I know my August kits are on the way buy I really want to get the most out of this kit first :)  For this layout I dug into my Color Kit and used the lovely Dylusions acrylic paint and the exclusive stencil designed by Kim Watson.  I drew inspiration from the bright colors in the pictures I was using and went with bright greens, orange, pinks, and turquoises.  I also did some simple painting to complete my title!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have an awesome day!

And of course I made a process video to go with my layout, so be sure to check it out too!

Love This Life Together - Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone, I'm back sharing another layout using the amazing  Hip Kits!  I am using the July Kits and am in love with how funky the kits are this month, the doodle inspired ephemera, the bright cheery colours, it all calls to me!  As always I had no clue where to begin as I liked everything, so  I was happy to take on my challenge for the week, which was to "supersize it"!  I decided that I would supersize my title, and I was inspired by all the sheet of exclusive tapes that we received in the Project Life Kit to piece together the word love.  I also used the exclusive heart cut file designed by Ashley Horton to create my "O".  I layered strips of patterned paper along with the tape and created a giant LOVE on my background.  I then added my photo and embellished around it I used lots of the exclusive ephemera and well as the puffy stickers from the Embellishment Kit. I topped it off with some of the awesome Becky Higgins Chipboard pieces too!  I also created another embellishment cluster on the bottom left side of the page to offset the picture at the top right.  This layout came together so quickly and easily and I barely even had to think about what I was doing!  Hope you all like and can't wait to show you what I make next with the kits!

And of course if you'd like to see how I made my layout then check out my process video!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I Will Cherish Them - Just Nick Studio

Hi everyone, I'm here with a layout that I created as part of a team up with Creative Scrappers!  We were given a sketch to use and a fantastic cut file from the JustNick Studio shop!  For my layout I backed my cut file with lots of spring inspired colors and used lots of chipboard and ephemera from the Shimelle Starshine collection to really bring out the sweet pictures of my son.

Here is the cut file that I used to create my background.

This is the Creative Scrappers sketch that I used as inspiration!

 Oh and for the rest of July you can get that awesome cut file for free using this code!

And last but not least don't forget to check out my process video to see how the layout came together!

Getting Tagged! - Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!  I am a busy busy girl, but I did manage to squeeze out another layout for Hip Kit Club!  This time I was focusing on tags, which I will admit, I have never made before.  I am a tag noob so to speak :)  Well, here's the scoop, if you're looking for a great way to use up odds and ends in your stash or left over from a kit this is a great way to get it done!  Added bonus : Now you have a stash of tags to whip out when gift giving!

So here are the four tags that I created using my June Hip Kit, embellishment kit and project life kit.
So from there I decided to use them the only way I would know how . . . I made a layout with them!  I positioned them in a kind of staggered grid formation with my photo.  I did some quick simple layering under my photo as well.  I fussy cut out some flowers from the Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness paper that is just gorgeous!  All in all this is a busy layout with lots going on and lots to look at but I wouldn't have it any other way!
Oh and of course I made a process video!  Be sure you check out how I made my layout!

Sunny Days Ahead with Hip Kits

Hey all!  I'm popping by to show the layout I created earlier this week using the June Hip Kits!  For this layout I decided to channel the sun in the hopes that it might show it's face around here!  I decided to create a sunburst using the Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness paper as well as some Fancy Free from Pink Paislee.  I added some bakers twine from my stash and then topped it all off with some enamel dots and brads both from Happiness and Sunshine.  This is such a simple and fun layout to replicate and a great way to use up odds and ends!

Pssst, don't forget to check out my process video so you can see how I made my layout!
