"Hey, Hello, Hi" Layout | Hip Kit Club

Hi Everybody! Today I want to share with you a fun way to use the awesome July Hip Kits with some fun brush-script painting!

I just used some paint and some of the white cardstock that comes in the paper add on kit to make my own kind of brush-script "patterned paper" to coordinate with the lovely patterned papers in the kit -- like the lovely polka dot print from Pink Paislee Fancy Free!

I cut it into pieces and used it to frame the photo grid at the center of my layout, along with some of the cool exclusive papers designed by Kim Watson that come in the Main kit!

I used lots of fun embellishments like the Amy Tangerine rubber shapes, the Freckled Fawn gold puffy heart stickers, the Project Life Chipboard stickers, etc to surround my pictures and keep the eye flowing across my page.

I love the vibrant look of the layout and I hope that I have inspired you to combine some fun brush-script painting with your Hip Kit goodies in your scrapbooking today!!!

Laugh Out Loud Title Fun | Hip Kit Club

Hi Everyone! Andrea here, and I’m going to share with you a fun layout I did where the focus is really on the title…but without distracting too much from or taking away from the picture. I don’t know about you, but when I scrap a layout, I like to really emphasize and draw focus first and foremost to the picture or pictures in that layout. However, sometimes it is fun to draw focus to another element on your page first and foremost, like the journaling, ephemera, or the title. For this layout, I used the July Hip Kit Club kits to make a 12×12 layout that really draws attention to the title of the page first, and then brings your eye around to the picture that the title is all about.

For my layout, I wanted to document a funny moment with my hubby. We were sticking out our tongues and laughing and so the title of my layout just had to be “laugh”! We love to laugh! I used one piece of white cardstock from the add on Paper kit for the background of my layout and one to cut out a really, really big “laugh” for my title. I used some paints to paint my “laugh” with an ombre effect and then glittered around the word. I wanted the title to be painted and glittered not just because I wanted it to stand out a lot, but also so that it would match some of the main elements on my layout. I wanted it to match all the hearts that I punched from the exclusive Hip Kit paper, Painted Dreams (the one that looks watercolored with black stripes), and also to match the glittered frame from Paige Evans Fancy Free by Pink Paislee which I used to frame my picture on the layout.

The repeating hearts on the layout serve to point out the sweet and silly love that my hubby and I have, not just with their shape but also because I wrote words like “happy” and “dorky” and “xoxo” on some of them in order to emphasize this fact and to also to re-emphasize the large “laugh” title.

To add some extra texture and interest to my layout, I used the several of the lovely embellishments that come in the July Hip kits, like the exclusive puffy stickers, the exclusive ephemera pack, the exclusive flair…all of which is so super cute!

I also used some other non-exclusive, but oh so adorable embellies from the kit, like the Becky Higgins Project Life chipboard, the Freckled Fawn gold hearts and plus signs, the Amy Tangerine rubber shapes, and a single American Crafts gold bow paperclip…all of which served to lead the eye around the page, especially to the title of the page and then to the picture. This is particularly true with the arrow embellishments that I used on this layout which literally point you to what I want you to look at!

I hope you like my layout and that you are inspired to create a title-focused layout using the pretty papers and goodies from the July Hip Kit Club kits! Please enjoy this process video of me making my “Laugh” layout!

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you a very happy, scrappy, fairytale of day filled with lots and lots of laughs!!!

TMNT Layout | Hip Kit Club

Hey Everybody!!! I want to share with you a fun layout that I did using the June Hip Kit Club kits! 

My husband and I went to see the movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, one day in June and it was super awesome! It reminded me of being a kid again, watching the old TMNT movies with my big brother and my Dad. The movie is so bright and hearkens back to the awesome stylings of the late 80's and early 90's so I had to make this layout something that captures that same feeling of vibrant, bold playfulness while still feeling modern! Plus I wanted to use a bunch of greens for the turtles! The June kits were perfect for this because they are so vibrant and colorful. And the Fancy Free paper by Paige Evans from Pink Paislee really helped me build a cool geometric frame for my tubular turtle pic! I used some paint to create a big bold title for my layout and I painted one of the Jilibean Soup wood veneers too and made a paperclip. I sprinkled my page with embellishments from the kit that I thought fit well with the theme, like the tv and the movie camera in the Becky Higgins Project Life Ephemera Pack. I also played with some of the fun Hip Kit exclusive puffy stickers and a couple of the June Hip Kit cutfiles (by moi :-) . I also used some of the cute Crate Paper rubber shapes that I thought went well with the color scheme of my page....Well, I hope you like my totally awesome Turtle Layout and that you are inspired to make something that takes you back to your childhood using the June Hip Kits! Cowabunga!!!
