Hip Kit Club | April 2017 | Five Today

My latest share for the Hip Kit Club is on a Thursday inspiration post along with designers, Cara and Anna with a project each featuring these products.  This week, we are featuring the Alphas and Numbers that were included with in the April 2017 kits – please head over to the blog post to see how the other designers worked with these products here.

Here is my project:

Five Today

I decided to use the Vicki Boutin Crayons to color in the numbers from the watercolor sticker sheet both of which are in the April Color Kit to create a countdown to FIVE on my layout and used a photo of my youngest daughter Aimee on her recent birthday!   It is so easy to just color these in and add some water and they create the most beautiful color.

I also wanted to create a vertical design and to do this I added strips of the Bella Blvd black and white washi tape from the Embellishment Add on to create anchor points in my design which I used to add extra embellishments on and around.   I enjoyed using the Crate Paper  Oasis ephemera and Pink Fresh Studio leatherette stickers from the Mix Up collection to create a fun non-traditional birthday page of my daughters ‘flamingo party’

Gr8 Mates | Hip Kit Club | March 2016

Hi everyone!

Today I have my first layout to share with you featuring the March 2016 Hip Kits.  We are so lucky to have lots of Hip Kit Exclusive Papers designed by the talented Kim Watson – including this wood grain I have used as my background.   I have used a sketch designed by Ashley Horton which is one of the challenges set each week in our online Facebook forum (Hip Kit Club Member Forum on Facebook).  If you haven’t checked out this lovely community you need to come along and join in the fun.  This is the sketch:12052656_10154105426192566_2475801020682751282_oI totally love the embellishments in the March Kits, Ephemera from Basic Grey (Saturday Morning), Elles Studio (Little Moments) and Pinkfresh Studio (Felicity collection) – they are perfect little treasures to layer on your layouts. Best Friends
