Week 26 and “Hello Lazy Day.”

Hey y’all! I’m back with two super fun projects for you all. The first is a 9×12 PL spread created with the fabulous February kits!
 
I started by cutting up some of the patterned paper, card stock, and even a piece of the #prettylittlestudio packaging for the base of my spread. I then added my photos and began working on my title. I used the American Crafts ‘Thickers’ called “Sunshiny Days” to note that it was Week 26.
 
I used a few stickers from the Crate Paper “Chasing Dreams” collection along with a few of the ephemera pieces from Pretty Little Studios. Oh, and who can forget about those adorable puffy stickers created by Pink Paislee and Paige Evans.
 
I love the way this spread turned out and I hope you do too!!

For my second project, I created a sweet and simple layout with lots of layers.

I started with a white background from our Card Stock Kit along with a few pieces of patterned paper cut to random sizes. I simply layered behind my photo and then added fun Crate Paper “Chasing Dreams” ephemera as extras!

For my title, I used the “Sunshiny Day” Thickers by American Crafts along with the gold glitter Thickers for the “Chasing Dreams” collection.

I added lots of elements from the “Chasing Dreams” collection, including the chipboard stickers, as well as the card stock stickers.

I love simple this layout turned out, but even more how quickly it came together!

Challenge: No Patterned Paper!

Hey y’all!

Ashley here with a super fun, yet kind of different layout for you all, using the January 2017 Hip Kits.

When I first saw these butterfly rub-ons by (American Crafts) “One Canoe Two” collection, I just knew that I wanted to use the majority of them on one layout for a background. So, that’s exactly what I did.

I simply used a piece of white cardstock from the Paper Kit and began rubbing on the butterflies in a diagonal direction across the page—I also placed some coming off of the page so that it would look more complete.

I took on the challenge of NO patterned paper so I simply layered with lots of ephemera from the “Moonstruck” collection.

For my title, I decided to use lots of words that make no sense together (LOL). But I LOVE the look and I hope you do too!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Week 25 and “Hello Beach”

Hey y’all! Ashley here to share two projects you, featuring the January 2017 Hip Kits.

The first project I’m sharing is my PL spread for Week 25.

I started with several of the cards from the Project Life Kit along with a few cut-to-size patterned papers from our Paper Kit. I embellished with cork pieces from the American Crafts “Hazelwood” collection, along with bits and pieces from the HKC Exclusive ephemera pack Pink Paislee “Moonstruck” collection.

For my title card, I used those beautiful Crate Paper Thickers along with the DIY Thickers (leaving them white).

I just love the way this spread came out and I hope you all do too!

For my second project, I created a super simple 12×12 LO featuring lots of bits and pieces from the Main Kit, Paper Kit and Emebllishment Kit.

I started with a white background from the Cardstock Kit and simply used the HKC Exclusive (decorative) tape to create a DIY background Along with the decorative tape, I added some ripped strips of patterned paper.

I added my photo on the bottom left of the page and began to embellish around the strips of paper and tape.

I used the “Hazelwood” cork, along with the stickers from the Project Life Kit for January.

Lastly, I used the white alphas to add “beach” right on top of my photo and finished off the page with a few of the chunky cork pieces created by Pink Paislee.

I hope y’all love this one too!!

Hello Cutie!

Hey y’all!

I’m back with a simple, yet fun layout to share with you all using the January 2017 Hip Kits with you all!

I started with one of the beautiful “Frolic” papers, designed exclusively for the Hip Kits. I wanted to use this as a background paper, so I simply tore some of the vellum to mute the floral paper.

I layered a few of the “Moonstruck” ephemera pieces from our Main Kit, along with one of the papers from our Paper Kit.

For my title, I used both a Hazlewood sticker and some of the white Project Life alphas from our Project Life Kit. I seriously wish I had these alphas in EVERY. SINGLE. COLOR. Please? If someone from American crafts or Becky Higgins is out there listening, please make these in every color, and if not in every color, at least mint, pink, orchid, aqua, yellow, and teal. 🙂

I added some more of the Hazlewood stickers around the page along with other pieces of ephemera from the  Moonstruck collection.

I just love the way this layout turned out! It’s so simple, yet a little different than what I’m used to creating.
