Week 20 and “Love You” Process

Hey y’all! I am super excited to share two new projects using the Hip Kit Club December 2016 Kits.

For my LO, I began with a white background (Card stock Kit) along with a beautiful cut file designed by Kim Watson. I quickly adhered the cut file to my white background, then sewed right on top of it. I used the Parfait cardstock from our kit for the cut file and I think this has to be the most beautiful piece of cardstock I’ve ever seen!

Then, I began my layering process with several papers from the Pink Paislee (Paige Evans) “Take Me Away” collection, along with a scrap from Crate Paper “Bloom” collection.

I embellished with the My Mind’s Eye gold mirrored acrylic pieces (Oh my gosh—so beautiful), along with ephemera pieces from the “Take Me Away” collection. For my title, I used the American Crafts (Amy Tangerine) Thickers phrases.

To complete the LO, I added Heidi Swapp mist in the color “Sweet Mint,” which came in our Color Kit

I love the way this page turned out and I hope you love it too

For my PL Spread—I went back to working on some of my Spring months. πŸ™‚
I started by cutting some of the exclusiveProject Life Kit cards. I simply added my photos, along with some HKC exclsuive cut-to-size patterned papers from the Paper Kit
My title card was completed with two different types of alphas. For the “WK,” I used the Crate Paper, Inc. “Charming” Thickers and for the “20,” I used American Crafts (Dear Lizzy) “River Rock” Thickers.
I added my journaling by simple using bullets to note what we did that week, and then I simply clipped it using one of the Pink Paislee “Take Me Away” clips. I used a few of the cut-apart words and phrases that came in our Project Life Kit, along with wood veneer arrows and HKC exclusive ephemera.
This spread was put together in a flash because every element in this kit coordinates perfectly making it so simple!
I hope you all love it! πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful Saturday.

December Documented Day 3

Hey y’all! Ashley here, with a super fun December Documented spread, using the DD Kit that came in our November pack for the Hip Kit Club!
For Day 3, I had LOTS of photos, so I decided to do a front and back spread.
I started by cutting several of the patterned papers down-to-size (2×2) to fit in the square pockets. I used a few of the HKC Exclusive 3×4 cards that came in the December Documented Kit along with a handful of the Crate Paper (Snow and Cocoa) ephemera pieces.
For my title card, I used a the exclusive alphas, along with the silver glitter American Crafts Thickers for the #3 (these came in our November Embellishment Kit)
I just love those chunky stars. I actually used them right on top of my page protector and I sewed the exclusive #3 onto a piece of vellum to note that it’s day 3—-because one time is not enough πŸ˜‰
I also created a quick tag as an “insert” so that I can write some extra journaling. I used some of the Pinkfresh Studio washi tape and a super cute paper clip from the Snow and Cocoa collection.
I hope y’all enjoy this spread!! Have a wonderful rest of the week!

December Documented Days 1 & 2

Hey y’all! I’m back with another project featuring the AMAZING December Documented kit that was shipped with the November 2016 Hip Kits!

I began with Day 1! I’m using an 6×8 SN@P album, and the page protectors that I used for Day 1 and 2 have two 3×4 pockets and one 4×6 pocket.

I used several of the cards from the December Documented kit, along with a few of the exclusive patterned papers cut down to size.

The exclusive numbers that came in the kit were used to note that it was day #1 and #2. In addition, I used a few of the puffy stickers from the Pinkfresh Christmas pack!

Lastly, a worked on my cover page. I know, I did it backwards—but I was so excited to jump into my days that I just skipped the first page.

I left this page super simple. I used a 3×4 card with a tree icon and placed this right on top of a 6×8 sized piece of paper that was cut down from the exclusive papers. I added the mini pom-pom balls to act as ornaments on the tree! For the back page, I simply sewed two snowflakes from the Crate Paper “Snow and Cocoa” collection and then added the entire pack of sequins from our Main Kit.

I hope y’all enjoy this!

Week 45 and Gift Giving

Hey y’all! Ashley here, with a PL spread using the Hip Kit Club November 2016 Kits!

I began by cutting several papers down to the right size for the spread. Then, I started with my title card. I used the glitter Thickers from the Embellishment Kit. I just love how simple, yet sparkly these alphas are!

I adhered all of my photos to the spread and then began embellishments. I added several HKC Exclusive “Tis the Season” product as accents, such as the decorative tape and the phrase stickers. I used the Crate Paper “Snow and Cocoa” wood veneer pieces from the bottom left card, and lastly, added some HKC Exclusive ephemera pieces around the spread.

I hope you all love this spread!!

My second project is all about gift giving! I am IN LOVE with this time of year, mainly because I get to shop for gifts for friends and family. One of my absolute favorite things to do.

I started with 3 tags cut from the Tim Holtz sizzix tag die pack. I cut them from patterned paper, mainly HKC Exclusive paper. I used a few of the ephemera pieces and popped them up on foam squares, along with decorative tape and phrase stickers.

For the gift bag, I punched banner shapes from the “Snow and Cocoa” paper to place right beside the larger banners cut from the 12×12 cut-apart “Snow and Cocoa” paper that we got in our Main Kit and Paper Kit.

I added several ephemera pieces created by Kim Watson, such as the snowflakes and banner shapes. Lastly, I added some of the decorative tape to complete the look!

I hope you all gain some inspiration from these quick and simple handmade gift-giving ideas!
