Egg Hunt, Just For Fun *Hip Kit Club*

Hello everyone!

I shared this bright and colorful Easter layout over on the Hip Kit Club blog yesterday...

I used the April 2015 Hip Kits for this layout and one of my favorite photos from this past Easter of my two youngest holding their baskets of eggs.

I used watercolors on the "Just For Fun" card from Heidi Swapp available in the April 2015 Color Kit and splattered blue mist on top of the yellow patterned paper background.

 You can read more about this layout on the Hip Kit Club blog.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous day!


Celebrate Spring *Hip Kit Club*

Happy Tuesday friends!

I'm sharing this "spring-alicious" layout on the Hip Kit Club blog today along with a quick tutorial on how to create a die cut pocket for hidden journaling using the April 2015 kits...

I was inspired by the colors in my photographs for the colors on this layout...

I was also inspired by the change of season and weather and by the new April Hip Kits!

To find out how I created this hidden journaling pocket, head on over to the Hip Kit Club blog.

What are some ways you celebrate Spring?  Thanks for stopping by!

Project Life Weeks 9 & 10 *Hip Kit Club*

Hello everyone!

I shared my Project Life spread for Weeks 9 & 10 on the Hip Kit Club blog yesterday.

I used the March 2015 Project Life kit for this layout.  I love how well the kit coordinates with my photos and could be used for any project. 

Week 9

I love layering die cuts and stickers with wood veneer pieces.  They add a lot of detail and dimension without adding a lot of bulk.

I also like to add stickers directly onto the larger photos in my spreads. Using a photo's white space is a great embellishment opportunity!

Week 10

To keep my page cohesive, I added wood veneer pieces throughout my spread and utilized the same color scheme for both weeks. 

I really loved using the transparency on my photo of the snow.  It helped add color and visual interest to an otherwise muted photo. 

Be sure and stop by the Hip Kit Club blog for even more inspiration using the March 2015 kits.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Sweet & Silly *Hip Kit Club*

Hello friends!

I'm over on the Hip Kit Club blog today sharing this layout I created altering some alphas with gold foil paint and using the March 2015 Hip Kits...

I altered the Kraft alphas (available in the March 2015 Embellishment Kit) using some gold foil paint to coordinate with the gold-dipped chipboard arrows from Crate Paper.  More info about how I did that here.

The photos I used for this layout were of my son and daughter being silly and having fun during her 6th birthday celebration.  I printed them off in a photo strip and layered it on the left side of my page on top of a larger strip of patterned paper. 

I love how the softer colors and gold accents look on the dark navy card stock background!

I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by and TFL!


Project Life Week 7 & 8 *Hip Kit Club*

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I'm on the Hip Kit Club blog today with my Project Life spread for Weeks 7 & 8 using the March 2015 Project Life Kit

Since I've been using two weeks per spread for my PL album this year, I like to keep it fairly cohesive and the March PL kit from HKC was perfect for helping me achieve that.

Week 7

You can see more detailed photos on the Hip Kit Club blog of my spread.

Week 8

Be sure and check out the April 2015 Kits that were revealed on Sunday! They're amazing and perfect for all of your spring projects!

Thanks for dropping in today :)


My Movie Date *Hip Kit Club*

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

I'm sharing a fun layout on the Hip Kit Club blog today.  It was the last one I created using the February 2015 kits.  I have my March 2015 kit on my desk right now and it's so amazing that I started playing with it immediately!

Once in a while I do scrap a subject other then my kiddols, lol!  For this particular layout, I scrapped a photo of a movie date I had with my BFF...

I used what was left of the February 2015 kits for this layout and you can check out my full post with all the details here.

I used my vintage typewriter to journal on one of the patterned papers from the 6x6 pad...that's why there are some typos ;)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
