..:: awesome moments ::..

Hi Friends! Hope the first week of 2018 has been kind to you! I'm here to share my Hip Kit Club assignment with you for this week. I got to work with the 2017 December Kits and a sketch by Irit Landgraf. Here is the sketch:

And here is my take on the sketch:

The December kits are full of items from Crate Paper's Good Vibes collection, Pink Fresh Studio stars, and Vicki Boutin's ephemera pack -- AND I USED THEM ALL!  (well, not literally all of the embellishments, but several items from each pack)! 😀 As I was looking through the embellishments from both packs, I kept finding oranges and greens. And then I found this butterfly!  

Those colors, the cork items, and this butterfly helped me find a color focus. There are so many items in the kits to use, it was nice to have a focus. 😀 I pulled out everything I could find in those colors and got busy. Scroll to the bottom for my process video, or continue if you want to read about it. 

The layers in the sketch inspired me to create a LO with a ton of layers behind my photo. Die cuts, frames (love those frames) and stickers! I didn't use any patterned paper on this layout! Here are a couple more close ups:

For the title I used a die cut and a sticker -- Awesome Moments. And this was an awesome everyday moment. As much as I have enjoyed creating Christmas projects over the last couple of months, it was great to get back to scrapping the everyday moments that I love!

I made a video of my process if that suits your fancy!

Thanks a lot for stopping by! See you again soon!

..:: delicious december day ::..

Hi! I hope everyone has had a great holiday season! I am ready for 2018, are you? Today I am sharing a project that I made using the December 2017 Hip Kit Club kits and a HKC sketch by fellow DT member Anna Komenda. Here's the sketch:

I used one of the HKC Exclusive papers found in both the main kit and the paper add-on. Fellow DT member Irit Landgraf designed it and these flowers are divine!  I'm not sure why I chose flowers for a boy layout with a Christmas-y theme (other than I love it) -- but it totally worked!  My grandson is eating Christmas cookies -- and loving them. :-) 

I replaced the snowflakes from the sketch with stars. There are tons of stars in this months kits. I used Pink Fresh Studio puffy stickers and also their stitched layered stars. I layered behind the photos with exclusive cards from the PL kit. I added a few extra splatters and sequins for good measure.

Here is a look at that exclusive paper by Irit .

For my title, I fussy cut "YAY" from a sticker on Crate Paper's Good Vibes sticker sheet included in the December PL kit. I used a die cut from the ephemera pack for the word "Delicious".  And I did some more fussy cutting with a exclusive card included in the PL kit. "Day" is also from the Good Vibes collection and included in the Main kit. It was fun to put together all of the different font combinations for this title!

I also made a video of my process if that's something that suits your fancy.

Thanks a lot for stopping by! I will see you again soon -- on to a great 2018!

..:: snow much fun ::..

HI friends! Back again with another layout using the 2017 November Hip Kit Club kits. I have really enjoyed working with these kits and I still have so much left! This week my assignment was to work with a sketch. Here is my take on the sketch.

And here are a few close ups!

I also made a process video, if that suits your fancy! 

I used quite a few Shimmerz products on this one! Next time you order Shimmerz from Shimmerz Paints, if you mention my name in the comment section, you will get a little surprise freebie in your order! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you again soon!
