I inked the 'Sunshine ' word in tropical green ink from the Sunshine Word sheet and adhered it near the other words included on the background paper..

I also inked that super cute pair of sunglasses and adhered this to the top left corner.. 

Here are the awesome chipboard pieces I used from the Memory Maze Designs store!

Such Great Times | June 2016 Hip Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi there everyone!
Today I am sharing a new design team layout for Hip Kit Club using the awesome June 2016 Hip Kits including the Main Kit and Add-On Kits!
For this week, my brief was to use lots of layers so I decided that it might be cool to create a paper weave effect using the Fancy Free paper by Paige Evans/Pink Paislee that was in the Main kit!
Such Great Times
I cut the paper into strips about 6 inches long and began to intertwine them over and under and adhered them down to my chosen background paper, the exclusive notepaper one designed by Kim Watson.
Such Great Times Detail
Staying with the layering brief for this week, I also used some of the exclusive project life cards and exclusive ephemera pieces for layering underneath my photo.
Such Great Times Detail 2
I loved adding some of the HKC exclusive puffy stickers, the Heidi Swapp silver glitter puffy stickers and those ever so cute rubber charms from the Bloom collection by Maggie Holmes.
Such Great Times Detail 3
I love how the paper weaving effect turned out and how the whole layout came together around it!
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today!

Not a Morning Person | Just Nick Studio/Creative Scrappers

Hi there everyone!
Today I am here to share my design team layout for Just Nick Studio and our recent team up with Creative Scrappers!

We were given this awesome sketch from the Creative Scrappers team to take inspiration from!
This is the July free cut file that we were to use with the sketch! Isn't it cool? I ungrouped the cut file and deleted some of the top rows so that it resembled the sketch a little better! 
You can get it for free all month long until July 31st! Just put in this code at checkout: csfree
I have wanted an excuse to use those die-cuts and the acetate word for so long! One of my good friends sent me this photo to scrap and it was perfect to use for this layout! I mostly used the True Stories collection by Shimelle!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Everything in this collection is just to die for! The soft and pretty colour palette is just beautiful making it super easy to get a layout done and such a short amount of time!

You Are Lovely | June 2016 Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone! 

Today I am sharing a new design team layout with you that I created for Hip Kit Club using the June 2016 Main and Add-On kits!

Yesterday the new July cut files were uploaded to the Hip Kit Club​ website so I grabbed them and cut out the big heart one straight away! I cut it out from one of the AMAZING exclusive papers that Kim Watson​ designed and I cut the whole thing in half.....I then backed it with white cardstock to help make it pop from the dark blue background. 

I used a couple of the awesome exclusive Project Life cards that Kim also designed as layering pieces under and beside my photo and the gorgeous ephemera can't be forgotten either! I added a few different embellishments like the Crate Paper, Inc.​ Maggie Holmes 'Bloom' rubber charms, American Crafts​ Dear Lizzy Happy Place Watercolour Titles, Heidi Swapp​ silver glitter puffy stickers, Jillibean Soup​ wood veneer and Simple Stories​ Sunshine and Happiness brads and enamel dots....I love the way this layout turned out!

Awesome Dude | Memory Maze Chipboard

Hi there everyone!

Today I am here for my first share as a new design team member for Memory Maze Chipboard!

I have 2 sons so I scrap a lot of boy pages!

I used the Simple Stories 'So Rad' collection together with a selection of Memory Maze chipboard that suited the boy theme!

I added some coloured ink to some of the chipboard to add some colour to my layout!

You can never go wrong with using arrows on any type of boy layout!

That's it from me today! Stay tuned for another layout from me in the coming weeks!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Me | Just Nick Studio

Hi everyone!
Today I am sharing a new design team layout for Just Nick Studio! I absolutely LOVE cut files and include them on 90% of my layouts!
We were all asked to create a layout about ourselves...I recently changed my profile picture on Facebook to one of my favourite photos of myself (there aren't too many of those I can assure you ;)) so I decided to print it out and use that one for my page.
I'm not normally a flower person if you know me and my style but I had that gorgeous Illustrated Faith 'She Blooms' paper left over from my May Hip Kit and decided the Doily Background cut file would work perfectly with the paper! I cut it out with my Cameo and turned it around until I was happy with how it looked on my layout!
I added lots of different types of embellishments like, chipboard, wood veneer, puffy stickers, flair and enamel dots to help the cut file pop off the page and by using a black and white photo it makes the colour pop too! 
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today!

Sunrise | June 2016 Hip Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!
Today I am back sharing a new design team layout for Hip Kit Club that I created using the June 2016 Main and Add-On Kits!
This week I was given the brief to focus on text/alphas and I knew I wanted to use that amazing exclusive text paper that was designed by Kim Watson!
The paper did prove to be a little challenging with all those words so I decided to cut some circles out of it using my Silhouette Cameo, I kept some of the negative pieces from the circles and flipped them over to reveal the other side of the paper and added them in a few random places! I then backed it up against the wood grain paper which I love the look of how it turned out!

I had this photo that I took at Easter time of a beautiful sunrise one morning while camping. I took it using the panoramic setting on my phone and it was perfect! I thought it was the perfect photo to use since there are lots of sun/summer themed embellishments in the June 2016 kits!Sunrise Detail
I added lots of the embellishments from Simple Stories Jillibean SoupAmerican CraftsPink Paislee and Heidi Swapp plus the exclusive ephemera pack by Kim Watson too! The Go See Do circle and the 'I'm Dreaming of This' phrase were from the May 2016 Kit but  I thought they went perfectly with this layout!
Sunrise Detail 2
I filled almost every open hole on the layout either with a phrase or an embellishment...I love how using a small little item can really just add the perfect detail you needed! I added some machine stitching right around the entire edge of the text paper. Getting back to my brief of focusing on text/alphas...I used lots of other different text pieces including, puffy stickers, ephemera and phrase stickers as well!

Aren't the elements and designs in this collection awesome? I love how it all co-ordinates together and how it fits in with the cut file I chose to use!

It feels so good to go into my stash of embellishments and throw a few on a page to use them up! I picked out a few items like wood veneer, flair, stickers and enamel dots.

Hello Happiness | June 2016 Hip Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone! 

Today I am back and I am very excited to share a new layout created using the Hip Kit Club June 2016 Hip Kits with you all! 

As soon as I saw that the Pink Paislee/Paige Evans Fancy Free small squares paper was included this month, I knew straight away that I would get out my heart punch and punch hearts from both sides of these squares!

I laid them all out and adhered using only a very small amount of glue as I knew I would machine stitch vertically through all of the hearts! I used lots of the Exclusive ephemera pieces and Project Life cards for layering around my photo. I just love embellishing this kind of layout and these amazing kits make it so easy to co-ordinate everything!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Happy creating!
