Week 24 and “Read with Me”

Hey everyone! I hope your Saturday is going well so far!

I have 2 fun projects to share with you using the January 2017 Hip Kits.

I started by creating a PL spread for Week 24. I used several of the cards from the Project Life Kit for this month! I just loved the color scheme in this kit!

For my title card, I used those super cute Thickers as well as the Hazlewood cork pieces.

I used lots of the Hazlewood stickers for embellishments, along with one of the HKC Exclusive wood veneer pieces. I added a few of the “moonstruck” puffy stickers and ephemera, and lastly, placed a couple of the HKC Exclusive ephemera on the top right-hand card.

I hope y’all love this spread and gain some inspiration.


For my LO, I used a white background from our Cardstock Kit, along with a handful of those beautiful cut files created by Kim Watson. I simply changed the color from black to a variety of colors including mint, navy, and pink using the PicMonkey website. I then saved it as a PNG and loaded it to my Cameo software, placed registration marks, and then printed them on my printer. Then, I placed the paper on my cutting mat and used the cut feature! I just love the way these turned out and now I can print endless amounts.

I gathered these floral images around my photo which was matted with 1 paper from the hazelwood collection and 1 HKC Exclusive paper.

For my title, I used those gorgeous gold Thickers again, along with the DIY Thickers sprayed with the Heidi Swapp color shine from our December 2016 Color Kit.

I added several stickers from the “Hazlewood”collection, along with a few of the cork pieces from that same collection.

Lastly, I took the Heidi Swapp Texture Paste from our Color Kit and watered it down. I then made my own pink splatters which I think turned out pretty cute.

I hope you all love this layout!

Journal with me! Hip Kit Club

Hey y’all! I’m back with a different, but super fun project for you all. So, I totally got sucked in with the trend of Bullet Journaling, or just journaling in general. However, the way that I use my journals is totally unconventional but I’m having so much fun.

The journal that I am sharing with you today is my “Ideas” journal. I have 2 other ones—one of the spiritual and one for lifestyle (this is where I track habits and financial things).

I thought it would be fun to share how I decorated my title pages. This journal was created for ideas particularly DIY, blog, project life, a journal ideas.

I used the  December 2016 Hip Kits to create these pages.

For all of the pages, I used those amazing “Charming” Thickers (American Crafts) Seriously my fave!

For the first page, titled “Ideas,” I used some of the HKC exclusive ephemera, along with the “Take Me Away” ephemera by Paige Evans.

For my DIY page (which is the main one shown) I cut up some of the paper from the #takemeaway collection along with some of the ephemera from that same collection. I also added some of the Heidi Swapp Color Shine from our Color Kit.

For my “Blog” page, I used some of the HKC Exclusive cut-aparts, along with some of the American Crafts glitter tape from our Embellishment Kit.

For my Project Life and Journal pages, I used some of my punches to create simple banners, along with the “Take Me Away” ephemera and HKC Exclusive ephemera from the Project Life Kit.

Lastly, for all of the title pages, I labeled them with tabs using the colored card-stock from our Cardstock Kit.

I hope y’all love it!!

Little Moments and Week 21

Hey everyone!

Ashley here, sharing two fun projects with you all! The first one I’ll share is a simple mixed-media (ish) layout!

I started with a beautiful pattern by Pink Paislee (Paige Evans).  I added some of the Shimmerz (Spun Sugar) dimensional paste right over the stencil from our Color Kit. I let this dry and then I simply cut around the mixed media and sewed it right onto the white background. This was my way of have a mixed-media look, without having to worry too much about the warping. I’ve seen Wilna Furstenburg do this before!

I started layering behind my photo with lots of the “Take Me Away” papers, and then added my title, using those Amy Tangerine Thickers that came in our Main Kit.

I used a few of the gold mirrored acrylic pieces for my final embellishments.

To complete the page, I misted with the Sweet Mint mist that came in our Color Kit.


For my second project, I created a simple 9×12 PL spread using lots of elements from the December 2016 Project Life Kit.

I cut up several of the cards that came in our kit and matted them on a background paper of some sort. I used the “Take me Away” Thickers for my title along with the gold mirrored acrylic pieces created by My Mind’s Eye.

I used tons of the HKC Exclusive cut-apart phrases/words, along with the ephemera from our Project Life Kit.

I used the glitter Thickers for to document my “messy” table, and lastly, added some punched stars out of pattern paper and the glitter tape from our Embellishment Kit.

I hope y’all love this!

Hey y’all!!

I hope y’all are having a wonderful weekend so far! I have a fun and simple layout for you using the December 2016 Kits. I started with one of the Pink Paislee (Paige Evans) “Take me Away” papers for my background (it’s a grid design on one side and a hexagon design on the other).

I began to build layers right away. I started by adding a strip of the HKC exclusive paper from our Paper Kit and simple placed it vertically on the page. I then cut several of the squares from another one of the Paige Evans “Take Me Away”papers and roughly sewed through the strip and these squares.

I used a piece of the “Take Me Away” ephemera as a frame around my photo, and began embellishing with more of those die cuts. I cut-apart some of the words/phrases that are exclusive (from our PL Kit) and simply added a title using the American Crafts (Amy Tangerine) Thickers.

Lastly, I used the American Crafts glitter tape to punch some stars to add as “confetti” around the page.


I hope you all love it and I hope you all are having a wonderful New Year so far!
