Cool Shades | My 2016 Main and Add-On Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!
 Today I am sharing a new scrapbook layout for Hip Kit Club with you using the amazing May 2016 Hip Kits! I have used mostly the Main/Scrapbooking Kit, the Project Life Kit and the Embellishment Kit to create this layout.  Cool Shades
I based my layout on the Hip Kit May sketch designed by Ashley Horton...also my focus this week is on patterned paper, I challenged myself to use the exclusive patterned papers with the triangle shapes and the tri-colour geometric shaped background paper from the main kit...I switched out one of the photos in the sketch for one of the exclusive Project Life cards designed by our very own Kim Watson!  13173063_10154254627337566_3697341011773648437_o
I used lots of the cute wood veneer pieces from Jillibean Soup to embellish my layout including the sunglasses, arrows and hearts! I also added the exclusive ampersand flair button and some of the super cute exclusive puffy stickers too!Cool Shades Detail
For my main title, I decided to use the Bean Board alphas from Jillibean Soup.....I adhered them by machine stitching through them for extra dimension and security...I love these alphas so much! I added a Simple Stories chipboard frame and lots of the exclusive acrylic shapes to finish off too! Cool Shades Detail 2

My Favourite | Just Nick Studio

Hi there everyone!
Today I have a new scrapbook layout to share with you for Just Nick using the Free Tic Tac Toe background cut file for the month of June!
Below is the free cut file for June available for download until June 30th using the code TICTACTOEFREE at checkout!
 
There are so many possibilities with the Tic Tac Toe background cut file, I cut it out from white cardstock and then backed it with the one patterned paper for a clean look. Another idea would be to back each square with a different paper for a busier look!
I just love the Fancy Free collection by Paige Evans! I am trying not to use too much of it! I love that I can use flowers on boy pages! The black and white photo helps to make the colours pop!
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today!

Super Cheeky | Totally Rad | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone!
Today I am back to share a new design team layout with you for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the awesome Totally Rad collection along with a little bit of Made of Awesome as well!
I cut a chevron background cut file from white cardstock and then backed the chevrons with papers from the Totally Rad collection. I machine stitched down the solid lines onto the grey background paper from Made of Awesome
I used a mix of embellishments from both Totally Rad and Made of Awesome. I scrapbooked a photo of my eldest son not wanting his photo taken so he resorted to half hiding behind this tree lol!
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today!

Life With Daddy | May 2016 | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a new layout with you for Hip Kit Club featuring the #May2016 #hipkits
I have used the Main Kit as well as the Project Life and Embellishment Kits to create my layout celebrating Dad's week! 


 Some detail......

I decided to stick with a blue toned colour scheme this time and love how the Simple Stories Life in Color frames make sort of a large frame around my photo. I backed all the frames with some of the exclusive project life cards and the exclusive cut apart sheet designed by Kim Watson! 


I also added lots of embellishments including the Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith enamel hearts and felt bow, the Jillibean Soup Healthy Hello Soup alphabet and wood veneer pieces, Echo Park Paper enamel dots, Hip Kit Club exclusive puffy and alphabet stickers and I finished off my layout with a few splatters of Mister Huey's Warm Calico mist from my stash. 


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

Good Times | Fancy Free | Pink Paislee

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a 'just because' scrapbook layout with you featuring the amazing Pink Paislee/Paige Evans 'Fancy Free' collection!


I decided to scrapbook this photo of my good friend Raquel Bowman and myself at one of the scrapbooking retreats called 'Escape2Create'


This collection is just so amazing with all the beautiful designs and colours...it has to be up there
  with one of my most favourite ever collections!

I tried a little bit of paper folding on this layout, I folded up the edges slightly to add a little bit of dimension. It makes it so simple to create a page when everything is co-ordinating and so pretty too!


I got most of the Fancy Free collection bar the 12 x 12 paper pad so I was pretty pleased with that! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Best Mates | May 2016 | Hip Kit Club

Hi there everyone!
I am back with you today to share another new scrapbook layout using the amazing May 2016 Hip Kits! I used lots of products from the May 2016 Project Life kit and the May 2016 Embellishment Add-On kit too!   
Best Mates
My theme this week is to 'Make it Manly'! Well that is super easy for me as I have sons and this photo of them is a few years old now but still one of absolute favourites! I wanted to make this layout bright and to use some unconventional colours like pink! I used lots of the exclusive Project Life cards designed by Kim Watson and Kimberly Hutchison from the May 2016 Project Life kit as layers under my photo... 
Best Mates Detail
I embellished using lots of the May 2016 exclusive ephemera, puffy stickers and acrylic shapes plus added some goodies from the Jillibean Soup Healthy Hello Soup collection like the wood veneer, the alphabet and the Wordfetti wood veneer. There are also some enamel hearts and a mini bow clip from the Illustrated Faith collection by Bella Blvd.
Best Mates Detail 2
I do love how the colours really pop against the white cardstock and also against the adorable black and white photo too!
Thanks so much for stopping by the Hip Kit blog today!

Love You | May 2016 | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!

Today I want to share a new design team layout for Hip Kit Club using the ‪#‎May2016‬ ‪#‎hipkits‬

I decided I wanted to create a layout this time with a repetitive pattern, so I went ahead and duplicated the Love word from the free May cut file set designed by Ashley Horton. 

I cut them out on most of the papers included in the main kit ‪#‎mainkit‬. I then backed each of them with some of the vellum from the ‪#‎cardstockaddon‬ and machine stitched around the perimeter of each one. I then placed them down on the white cardstock and shuffled them around until I was happy with their placement. I then backed the white cardstock with the Kraft cardstock to create an outside border.

I embellished the layout using some of the ‪#‎Mayexclusives‬‪#‎hkcexclusives‬ ‪#‎exclusive‬ ‪#‎puffystickers‬ and ‪#‎ephemera‬ designed by Kim Watson I also added some wood veneer pieces, alphabets and Wordfetti from the ‪#‎healthyhellosoup‬ collection by Jillibean Soup, some of the Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith ‪#‎illustratedfaith‬ papers and embellishments, mini felt bows and enamel hearts.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

Dream Big | Flutterby Designs Guest Designer

Hi everyone!

Here is my 2nd layout of 3 that I am sharing as part of my exciting guest design position over at Flutterby Designs this month! 

'DREAM BIG'

The inspiration for this layout came from the colours and the circles
in the pillow my gorgeous niece is sleeping on! I knew I just had to create a sleeping themed layout and the Flutterby Designs products I used were a perfect fit for the theme! I recreated the circle elements by flicking some different coloured mists around my page, adding some of the Flutterby enamel dots and also by using the strips of patterned paper top and bottom.


I cut some of the Wild Bohemian Everyday Etc Cards up and layered lots of them together underneath my photo. I added the 'Stitched Circles 2' wood veneer, 3 of the Wild Bohemian Page Tabs and also added some thread underneath the Flutterby 'I'm a Dreamer' Flair button. That big black arrow was cut with black cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo, I love how that added a bit more black to the bottom half of my page. 

Flutterby Designs products used:
'Wild Bohemian' Everyday Etc Cards
'Wild Bohemian' PageTabs
'I'm  a Dreamer' Flair Button from set no.380
'Stitched Circles 2' Wood Veneer

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to be guest designing over at Flutterby Designs this month!

I have 3 layouts to share over a couple of days so stay tuned for 2 others after this one!

For this layout I used loads of beautiful Flutterby Designs goodies together with some Maggie Homes/Crate Paper products. I firstly started my school themed layout by cutting a circle from white cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo, this created a hole in the centre of my page where I then backed the busy Crate paper/Maggie Holmes patterned paper.



Flutterby Designs products used:
'Wild Bohemian' Everyday Etc Cards
'Wild Bohemian' PageTabs
Yellow Polaroid Cut Out
Enamel Dots
'Regret Nothing' Flair Button from set no.286
'Be Brave' Flair Button from set no.380

Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Colour Me Happy | Faber Castell

Hi there everyone!
Today I am excited to be kicking off a fortnight long feature and team up with Cocoa Vanilla Studio and Faber Castell!
I decided to create a unique background with the white alpha stickers against white cardstock knowing that I wanted to add some colour to the background using the Faber Castell gelatos! I randomly placed the alphas horizontally and vertically to create a square design.
Be Bold Be Bright Be You
Once I had all the alphabet stickers placed I then chose 3 gelato colours and mixed them with water on some clear packaging to make a water colour consistency and then started painting using a small paintbrush the 3 different colours until I filled the area...
Be Bold Be Bright Be Beautiful Detail
I popped my photo and the 'Be Bold' card on some foam adhesive to give some dimension and to be able to tuck the flowers behind..
Be Bold Be Bright Be Beautiful Detail 3
I added a few simple embellishments from the Colour Me Happy collection as I didn't want to take away the focus of the background too much..
Be Bold Be Bright Be Beautiful Detail 2
I finished off by adding some enamel dots in the corresponding colours of the gelato colours.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Make sure to stop by the Cocoa Vanilla blog every day for the next fortnight with more amazing inspiration using Faber Castell products and the Colour Me Happy collection from the design team girls!
Happy creating!

Friends Forever | May 2016 | Hip Kit Club

Hi there friends!
Today I am back with you to share a new Design Team scrapbook layout for Hip Kit Club using the May 2016 Hip Kits including the Main KitProject Life Kit and the Embellishment Add-On Kit.
Friends Forever
I really do not like cutting into any of those amazing exclusive papers that both Kim and Kimberly have designed for Hip Kit club. It takes all my strength to do it! I decided that I would separate the exclusive May cut file which has lots of small things joined together, I ungrouped all the parts of the cut file and put them all off to the side except for the circle doily looking one. I then enlarged it to fit most of the page and cut it out on one of the beautiful Meadowbrook exclusive papers with my Cameo. I then turned the centre over so you could see the text side and the dark blue is the outside scalloped edge. I machine stitched it to another of the exclusive patterned papers in the Meadowbrook range that I used for my background paper.  Friends Forever DetailI embellished using the Jillibean Soup Wood Veneer pieces, a Mini Placemat, Thin Alphas, the exclusive flair buttons, ephemera, alphabet and puffy stickers, some Echo Park enamel dots and some Bella Blvd Enamel Hearts and Illustrated Faith Felt Bow paper clip. Friends Forever Detail 2Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
