Be Brave | April 2016 Hip Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi there everyone!
Today I have a brand new design team layout to share with you that I created using the April 2016 Main Hip Kit, Embellishment Add-On Kit and the Project Life Kit!
I decided I wanted to incorporate lots of the Pinkfresh Studio acetate words on to one page, once I laid a few down I was really liking how it looked and the rainbow effect came about easily when adding bits and pieces from each of the kits to compliment the words!

I machine stitched the acetate words down for extra texture and for extra hold! I used lots of colour co-ordinating pieces from the Pinkfresh Studio Life Noted washi stickers, epoxy stickers and rubber charms, Shimelle/American Crafts Starshine stickers and loads of the My Minds Eye On Trend 2 enamel dots/shapes to fill in spaces.  
For this week I focused on incorporating cards on a layout in a different way, I chose 4 of the journal cards from the Shimelle Starshine ephemera pack and layered stickers over 2 of them. I also used a couple of the colour co-ordinating Project Life cards, by cutting some small strips to fill in a few gaps here and there on my layout also.Be Brave Detail
I loved how adding a few of the Simple Stories wood veneer pieces helped to ground the layout a little. By adding a neutral colour I feel it breaks up the rainbow a little bit!Be Brave Detail 2
Thank you so much for joining me on my blog today! I hope you are now inspired to get creating with your April 2016 Hip kits! This layout is one of those ones to help you 'kill your kit' if you are almost at the end of your kit and you need a way to use up ALL the things!
Don't forget to mark your calendars and join us on the Hip Kit Facebook Member Forum for a fun-filled couple of days celebrating (Inter)national Scrapbook Day! There will be challenges, prizes and chat and lots of fun!
See you there!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star | April 2016 Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi! 
Today I am so excited to be sharing my very first project as a new designer for Hip Kit Club! I created my layout using the amazing April 2016 Hip Kits!

This week I am focusing on adding tiny details to my layout, this was so simple to do with all the gorgeous little embellishments included in the April 2016-Main kit, the April 2016-Colour Add-On kit, the April 2016-Embellishment Add-on kit and the April 2016 Project Life kit!


Some of my tiny details include the tiny exclusive acrylic stars, My Mind's Eye enamel dots, machine stitching, splats of mist, Shimelle Laine American Crafts #starshine collection phrase stickers and Simple Stories #lifeincolor wood veneer. As soon as I saw the exclusive Starstruck paper designed by the one and only Kim Watson, I knew I had the perfect photo to use and this is how my star themed layout came about!


As the Starstruck paper is quite busy I needed something to help break up the busyness so I enlarged one of the stars that Ashley Horton​ designed from the free cut file set and cut it from white cardstock with my Cameo...I then machine stitched around the outside edge to add some definition. 

I love the look of different size and coloured fonts so I used lots of the different Alpha sets for my title. Some of the beautiful exclusive Project Life cards that the lovely Kimberly Krater Hutchison​ and Kim Watson designed were perfect for layering behind my photo and I loved using the Shimmerz Paints​ 'No Yoking' mist for some subtle splatters of yellow throughout my page.


These kits are so beautiful and have so much product included! If you were thinking about subscribing...go for it! I promise you will not be disappointed! #hipkitclub #silhouettecameo #exclusives #scrapbooking #scrapbookkits Pinkfresh Studio​ #lifenoted Amy Tangerine​ #plusone #bettertogether Elle's Studio​ #littlemoments

Going Places | Just Nick Studio

Hey there friends!
I am back today and  I am excited to be bringing you a new design team layout that I created using some of the brand new cut files in the Just Nick Store!
I created a travel layout as soon as I saw the 'Around the World' cut file..... it went perfectly with the Starshine collection from Shimelle! I only used the plane from this set and cut it out on vellum.....
I absolutely love this Striped Alpha Cut file set! It looks great with a paper backed behind it for some extra pop of colour! 
I added some embellishments, machine stitching and some splats of mist to finish off! 
Thank you so much for joining me today! Be sure to check out the Just Nick store for all the awesome new cut files.........new ones are added all the time so check them out!
Happy cutting and creating!

Love You | Colour Me Happy | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi friends!
Today I am sharing a new design team layout with you for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the beautiful brand new Colour Me Happy collection! 
Love YouZoe designed some beautiful cut files to go with the Colour Me Happy collection so I decided to enlarge the XO one and back the coloured papers behind the cut. I also cut some small leaves and tucked them under the cut file to give a soft feminine look! 
Love You Detail 3This photo is of my darling niece when she was about 3 months old...I miss her so much because she currently lives in England :(
Love You Detail 2Here you can see the papers that I used to back my cut with...I was inspired by the colours in my nieces dress.... Love You Detail
Lots of little details can really make a page sometimes! Give it a try, I know you will love the end result!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Happy creating...
See you next time....

I used loads of different embellishments and papers from the Totally Rad collection on this layout and I do love how it turned out surprisingly!

Too Cool | Hello Sunshine | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi there all!
Today I am sharing a design team scrapbook layout with you featuring the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Hello Sunshine' collection...Too Cool
I sometimes get a bit frightened when using a dark background for the base of my layouts but with all the gorgeous bright colours included in the 'Hello Sunshine' collection, I was able to use lots of contrasting colours to help the elements on my layout pop!  Too Cool Detail
When I saw that super ice cream wood veneer and the ephemera, I just knew I had to pull out these photos of my eldest son from 5 years ago! The ice cream he is eating is almost as big as his head lol! Too Cool Detail 2
Don't fall over, but I actually used some of the flowers from the ephemera pack on my layout...I thought they looked cute and went with my Summery theme!
Thank you so much for joining me on my blog today!
Happy creating!
