Week 5 (cont.)

Hey everyone! AND happy Scrappy Saturday!

I hope your weekend is going well! I have a fun spread to share with you all, using the May 2017 Hip Kits.

I started by placing my photos and cards down on my work space. This week I had tons of photos, which often leaves little room for all of the fun goodies in the kits! However, I managed to use lots of stuff but also kept is quite simple.

I knew that I wanted to use the fun stamp set from our Project Life kit, so simply grabbed some black ink and stamped “Shoe Girl,” to note how much my daughter loves to try on shoes.

I used a few of the exclusive puffy stickers (from the embellishment kit), along with some of the “Little by Little” stickers and ephemera pieces from our Project Life Kit. I also added some of the Crate Paper “charming” chipboard stickers.

I cut a piece of patterned paper to 3×4 to make a journaling card and called the layout complete!

Sorry for the lighting on these photos…I had forgotten to take photos and the sun was already going down (insert crying emoji face here).

I hope y’all gained some inspiration from this spread!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Mood Board Inspi!

Hey y’all! Ashley here, back with a fun PL spread and LO focusing on the mood board using the May 2017 Hip Kit Club kits!

Here is the mood board for this month!


I just love all of those beauitful colors in the mood board. I really wanted my PL spread AND my LO to be representative of different aspects of the mood board.

For my PL Spread, I started with some of the HKC Exclusive cards from the Project Life Kit. I laid out my pictures, along with my PL cards and then began the embellishing.

From the mood board, I primarily focused on the colors, the feathers, and the clouds. I even attempted to copy the paint colors with the enamel dots.

I embellished using some of the HKC Exclusive wood veneer and ephemera, along with a few of the “Little by Little” stickers.

I love the way this spread turned out!

For my LO, I decided to play off of the door with a diagonal paint line from the mood board. Sometimes just adding a triangular look to the layout creates such a fun design!

I used a white background from our Card stock Kit along with one of the “Little by Little” papers.

I layered behind my photo and then began adding lots of embellishments along the diagonal line. I used elements from the “Little by Little” collection, along with some of the HKC Exclusive ephemera and Crate Paper chipboard stickers.

I added some of the Prima Watercolors for splatters around the design (these came in our color kit for this month)!

I hope you all love this one too!!

No Flowers Challenge

Hey everyone! Happy Scrapurday!
I have a fun project for you all with the challenge of NO FLOWERS, using the Hip Kit Club April 2017 kits. Y’all. This was hard for me. I love using anything floral on my spreads and layouts, and this by far was one of the most challenging (yet fun) spreads I’ve done!
I started with a 12×12 Project Life spread. I used a few of the pattern papers, cut-to-size, from the Paper Kit. For my title card, I decided to use those beautiful HKC Exclusive alphas from our Main Kit. Also, I’ve been loving to use those little label stickers from the Palm Beach collection by My Mind’s Eye.
I added a few of the leatherette stickers by Pinkfresh Studio along with lots of chipboard from the Pink Paislee Paige Taylor Evans Oh My Heart collection.
Lastly, I used the Vicky Boutin stickers as is (black and white) without altering them! I love the way this turned out as well!

I hope you gained some inspiration. And guess what? No flowers. Ok, fine. There may or may not be one little floral accent on the chipboard watch. (teehee).
