Love Love Loving It! - A layout | Hip Kit Club

Hello Everyone! Today I’m excited to share with you a layout and a tag I made with the theme of “beautiful blooms”! I love flowers and I always have. Roses…especially the mini roses that are often called fairy or “pixie” roses! Those are my favorites! I wanted to scrapbook this picture of an outing with my hubby Ryan where he had me pick out some roses. I picked up a ton of the bouquets because they were all so lovely!

For my layout using this picture I decided to use the awesome flower cut-files for this month along with our awesome August Hip Kit club kits! I used both the flowers designed by Ashley Horton and the ones designed by Kim Watson and I combined them in this layout with some of the pretty floral patterned paper that comes in the kit.

I used the Saturday by Dear Lizzy yellow flowered paper and did some fussy cutting of the blooms. For my background, I layered a few different sheets of patterned paper up from Crate Paper and Dear Lizzy, to create a nice frame for my floral bouquet of a layout!

For my embellishments, I used a variety of elements that I thought added a lot of depth and charm to the look of my layout. I sprinkled pink enamel dots here and there from the Cute Girl mixed embellishment pack and added a little golden bow from that pack to the top of my layout too.

For my title, I used the script word “love” from the Amy Tangerine ephemera pack (which I painted pink to match the pinks in my layout), the cool black and white chipboard thickers to spell “love”, and the phrase “loving it” which I cut out of the Oh Happy Life cut apart sheet, and together these spelled out “love, love, loving it”. My title, of course, referring to my love of these amazing roses which just always put a smile on my face….and so does my awesome hubby who still remembers to buy me flowers every once in a while, just because!

For my little tag, I decided to reflect my layout and do a cute little tag, cut from some of the Dear Lizzy Saturday small floral patterned paper, a little phrase I cut out from the Amy Tangerine ephemera pack that says “good times” and one of the lovely floral cutfiles which I painted! I hope you like my layout and my tag and that I have inspired you to have some fun with flowers on your scrappy projects today!

Cute Girls Love Comic Books | Hip Kit Club

Hi everybody, it's Andrea! Today I'm sharing with you a layout that I made using the super fun August Hip Kit Club kits.

There is a really cute, multi-colored, rainbow patterned paper in the kit by Amy Tangerine that I really wanted to use as soon as I saw it. It says “happy” all over it, and I thought it would be perfect to document a recent trip to see the movie, “Suicide Squad” with my hubby. The movie is based on DC Comic books, and I'm a huge comic book nerd.

A lot of the patterned papers and embellishments have that really fun, playful, comic book kind of vibe, so it was a perfect match.

I hope you enjoy my layout and that I've inspired you to use a lot of fun colors and patterns in your scrapbooking today. Remember to be playful and have fun.

P.S. Yes, I am dressed up as Harley Quinn from the movie in this picture. Have a happy, scrappy day.

A Fun-Filled August in My Planner | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone, it’s Andrea!  Today I want to share with you some fun planner decorating ideas using the beautiful new August Hip Kit Club kits!  I love working in my planner, and, realizing I’d gotten a little behind with my documenting and decorating, I pulled out the new August main kit and the embellishment add-on and started playing with the pretty papers and embellishments to create a new look for my planner for August.

I started by decorating the inside cover pockets and the planner cover page/dashboard. I love making different kinds of dashboards for my planners. For this month I decided to create a look that was really fun, cutesy, girly and summery, with a little bit of sassiness, too. To create my dashboard I used some pretty patterned papers from Cute Girl and a sheet of vellum (from the add-on cardstock kit) to make a cool layered effect.

I decorated the smaller front layer with some of the puffy stickers from Cute Girl, like the sweet little kitty and the script word, “Dream.”  On the vellum paper behind it, along with a couple pieces of ledger patterned paper, I used some washi tape from a previous HKC kit and some tags from the Amy Tangerine “Oh Happy Life” ephemera pack and the exclusive HKC ephemera pack to make a cool “Notes” spot in my planner.

After I finished my cover/dashboard page, I turned to the August calendar spread in my planner and started filling out the month with my schedule. I quickly realized how busy this month is actually going to be.

I decided that my decorating should reflect the busy-ness of the month and also all the exuberant, end-of-summer fun. This is reflected in the rainbow bright colors and whimsical feel of the embellishments I used, especially in the words I used to decorate my calendar.

I chose the Amy Tangerine transparency word “Crazy” and the die-cut word “Happy,” (both from the Oh Happy Life ephemera pack) plus a “captured” ephemera piece from the HKC exclusive ephemera pack to literally spell out how I expect this August to be – a crazy, happy month worth documenting.

After decorating my calendar, I decided to make an August divider page using a picture from this month. I love adding pictures into my planner. I think it helps to bring your plans to life and really show what your everyday life is like.

For the divider page I basically created a small layout using the rainbow-colored patterned paper from Cute Girl as my background. I added my picture and decorated with different embellishments from the kits to finish the layout. I also wrote the word “Hi” in a fun doodle-y fashion directly onto my page.

I had so much fun working on my planner this month, and I hope I have inspired you to decorate your planner using the oh-so-awesome HKC planner kits, which are just chock full of brand new scrappy goodies. Have a happy, scrappy, pretty, planner day!
