Beautiful | April 2017 Main and Add-On kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!
Today I am back to share a new design team layout created for Hip Kit Club featuring the April 2017 Main and Add-On kits! For this week, I decided to try dressing up some of the amazing exclusive Project Life cards from the April 2017 Project Life kit! Not that I think they need dressing up, they are beautiful just the way they are but I just thought I would add some texture to them!
So I started out first by machine stitching around the edges of the 2 Project Life cards, I used a 4' x 6' card and a 3' x 4' card as well. I added some of those gorgeous leatherette stickers from Pinkfresh Studio​ and also a staple to attach one of the acetate tags to the underneath of one. 
I absolutely love that swirl paper and just had to use it as one of my background papers this month! It reminded me of icecream...yum! Don't fall off your chair but I actually pulled out those gorgeous Vicki Boutin​ crayons from the April 2017 Color kit and added just a touch of mixed media...to make the Project Life cards pop even more!
The colours in the April 2017 kits are just amazing...they certainly remind you of the tropics and the beautiful warm sun!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to pull out your April 2017 Hip Kits and create!
Happy creating!

Beach Babe | April 2017 Main and Add-On Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone! 

Today I am back to share a new design team layout created for Hip Kit Club featuring the April 2017 Main and Add-On kits

As the April 2017 Hip Kits are tropical and summery I decided I wanted my inner Missy Whidden to come out lol!! I am pretty proud of how this layout turned out, considering I just do not do mixed media very often at all.

 I even layered some thread underneath my photo for some added texture just like Missy does too! I started this layout using the Vicki Boutin crayons from the April 2017 Color kit and I also added some different colors using my watercolor paints.

 Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to pull out your April 2017 kits and create!

Best Weekend Ever | April 2017 Main and Add-On Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!
 Today I am back with you to share a design team layout for Hip Kit Club featuring the April 2017 Hip Kits!
I used the gorgeous tropical leaf cut files designed by Kim Watson on my layout today...using them to enhance my photo and create a tropical feel to my layout! I cut them out from the Crate Paper Oasis paper found in the April 2017 Main kit......I turned a couple of the leaves over to reveal the pink side and to add a little colour to my layout!
I added machine stitching through every leaf to add some texture and to also help adhere them into place. Its a good idea to use only minimal glue when you know you are going to machine stitch as you will clog the needle full of adhesive if you use too much!
Adding the gold ephemera leaves ties the leaves all in together and introduces another colour to the layout also. Gold is so very hard to photograph but you get the idea in the photo above.
The colours in my photo went perfectly with lots of the Crate Paper Oasis products I have used...I adore that WKND title from the ephemera pack and knew I wanted to use that as part of my title. I used that Vicki Boutin roller stamp from the April 2017 Color Add-On kit to add some cute symbols and phrases and I also added one of the exclusive flairs for April too. 
I hope you are giving our cut files a try when you are creating with our kits? We would love to see what you are creating...please share in our Hip Kit Club Member Forum on Facebook!
Happy creating!

Paradise | April 2017 Main and Add-On kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi friends!
Today I am back to share a design team layout created for Hip Kit Club that is my first one featuring the April 2017 Hip Kits!
As soon as I saw that amazing pineapple cut file designed by Kim Watson, I knew I had to use it on my first layout with the April 2017 Main and Add-On kits!
I cut the cut file from that gorgeous Pink Paislee paper and then I backed it with the beautiful Crate Paper specialty acetate paper with the gold glitter polka dots found in the April 2017 Paper Add-On kit.
I am in love with the Hip Kit exclusive alphabet this month...I absolutely love the texture and how they look on a layout....I had to improvise though as the letters 'P' and 'Q' were accidentally left off this alphabet!! So to create my letter 'P', I trimmed the tail off the letter 'R'.    
There are so many stunning tropical elements in the April 2017 Hip Kits! I used a little bit from every kit to create this layout! I pulled out the super cute Vicki Boutin roller stamp and added a few cute quotes and symbols to finish my layout...lots of layers are made up of the exclusive Project Life cards underneath my photo...these are perfect to use for layering pieces if you don't do Project Life like I don't! 
I hope I have inspired you to create some tropical themed projects using your April 2017 Hip Kits?! 
Thank you so much for joining me on my blog today!
Happy creating!

BMX Adventure | Bella Blvd | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I am back with you again sharing a new scrapbook layout created for Sassy Scrappers featuring 2 of the Bella Blvd boy collections....Max and Alex mixed together!

I recently took my boys to the local skate ramp for some fun and some photo opportunities too of course! My little guy rode his bike around and loved it as they were the only kids there that afternoon! The Bella Blvd Max and Alex collections include some great products for photos of your boys!   

 The ephemera included in the Alex collection has die-cuts to suit any kid and their hobbies! I also added the Heidi Swapp wood veneer to form part of my title and I also used the Bella Blvd yellow puffy star stickers to embellish!

The background arrow paper was the perfect paper to use with these photos, I like how the paper shows movement with the arrows directed up and down. The BMX word are the Alex sticker alphabet that I coloured black as the grey would have been lost into the background paper otherwise.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

Make sure you check out all the amazing products in the Sassy store for all your crafting needs!

I will see you again in June as I am going overseas for all of May!

Happy crafting!

Hello Spring | Just Nick Studio

Hi there friends!
Today I am back with you to share a Spring themed layout created for Just Nick Studio using their awesome cut files! 
I pulled out some REALLY old Bella Blvd products for this layout...I love the pastel colours and how much they remind me of Easter and Spring...even though its not Spring in Australia, I like to think of it!
This is the Just Nick Studio cut file I used on this layout....the Hello Spring title.
That gorgeous thin multi-coloured stripe paper was the paper I decided to cut the Hello Spring title out of....I just love how this turned out....better than expected! I added a few embellishments to the title to help decorate the layout a little bit more and add interest..  
My niece is an absolute bundle of gorgeous! She is SO photogenic...perfect for this scrapbooker....hopefully she will appreciate me creating these layouts for her one day!
In this photo, she was posing a new outfit that her parents had bought for her, she is only age 1 in this photo but already a pro at posing lol! As the outfit has bumblebees on it, the photo was perfect for this layout!
That bumblebee chipboard sticker had to make its way on this layout since there were bees on Amelia's outfit and its her nickname too!! I really like how this layout turned out....I literally cut the title first and then decided on a photo, added some other small bits of paper and embellishments and the layout was complete! Super quick one this time! 
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have been enjoying the Spring inspiration from us? Why not check out the Just Nick Studio store for some cut files that would suit your next project?
Happy creating!

Everyday Gamer | Bella Blvd Alex | Sassy Scrappers

Hi there friends!

 Today I am back with another boy themed layout created for Sassy Scrappers using the awesome 'Alex' collection by Bella Blvd.

To begin this layout I decided to cut a title from a Just Nick Studio cut file set that went with the theme of my photo! My eldest son is a mad gamer so this title was perfect for this layout! The 'everyday' wood veneer piece from the Heidi Swapp set was also the perfect addition to my title too!

Once I had my title set out how I wanted it to look, I began to add my photo and some of the cute embellishments from the Bella Blvd Alex collection...there are lots of pieces that reference gaming and boys in this collection so they had to be included on this layout!

The wood veneer pieces I added include a star burst and some arrows and I added some of the yellow puffy stars also by Bella Blvd. Stars and arrows never go astray on boy layouts! The flair and enamel dots are the only things I added as extras from my stash.

I finished this layout off with some Mister Huey's Warm Calico Mist (I use this a lot on my layouts).

Have you checked out the Sassy store lately? You can find the Bella Blvd Alex collection plus loads more gorgeous products in store now!

Happy creating!

Let's Stay Home Daddy | March 2017 Main and Add-On kits | Hip Kit Club

Happy Easter everyone!
Today I am sharing a new design team scrapbook layout created for Hip Kit Club using the March 2017 Main kit! 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 my 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!
