You’re a hoot

Your a hoot 1


Hey everyone! This card was tons of fun, I have been eyeing this stamp set from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps for a long time (link is in the products used), I was absolutely thrilled to get my hands on it!

I used the Serendipity 6×6 pad that came in the Hip Kit January color add on, to create the layers in the backround. The bottom layer was cut with a stitched die from Simon Says Stamp. The twine is out of my stash I would assume from the twinery but it is the last of it so I can’t be sure.

I stamped the image with versafine onyx black in then coloured it with my Gansai Tambi watercolours (I have the 24 colour set). THe white highlights are done with a small brush and Golden Titanium White heavybody Acrylic.

Hey everyone! I am here with another card that would work for any love occasion or for Valentines day. I am really happy with the simplicity of this card.

I love you 2


I layered DCWV Adhesive Fabric to a piece of scrap cardstock. I absolutely adore the way the versafine ink and the sharpie pen bleed out ever so slightly in the fabric. The faux stitched lines were done with a ruler and a sharpie pen.

The Serendipity 6×6 pad (that I received in my colour add on from the hip kit) had the perfect pink patters to die cut the hearts from the Film and Polaroid die from The Greeting Farm, I then free handed a double outline around it.

Happy Hip Kit challenge 1

Hey everyone, first things first, I am sorry that my whites are reading slightly blue (teal kitchen couldn’t find my grey card, and its snowing outside). Anyway, this weekend challenge on the Hip Kit Member Forum on facebook is a challenge based on Wilna Furstenberg, lots of white space with just a little colour. These types of layouts are a big challenge but I had a ton of fun doing it!

Happy Hip Kit Challenge 2


I dug into my stash for a bunch of shapes and pieces that I wanted to use and then painted them all white. The glitter word thickers were a little bit to bright for the layout I felt so I did brush over them all with a dry brush to dull it a bit with white paint.

Happy Hip Kit Challenge 3


The pink colour and the brown were added using my peerless watercolours, and then I added some white acrylic lightly over top as I thought the colour was just a bit to bright. I also layered just a little bit of the patterned paper from the Seridipity 6×6 pad under the photo and tissue paper and between the acetate sheet just for a hint of colour.

Valentines Card 2015

Kraftin Kimmie vday


Hey everyone! Back again this time with a fun Valentines Day card I made using Kraftin Kimmie Stamps image I {heart} you. This one was fun using watercolour to colour the image. The white spots on the image were added using Golden Heavy body acrylic in Titanium White.


Kraftin Kimmie vday 2


I then decided using my Hip Kit colour add on for the month of January would work perfect for this card. I tinted my Golden light molding paste using the Avery Elle Mint to be inkpad that is included in the kit, and doesn’t the Hero Arts for Basic Grey stecil just work ever so perfect! The mint coloured twine is from my stash and I am almost out of it so I am unsure of who the manufacturer is, if I had to guess I would guess The Twinery.

Smile Today

Smile Today Jan Hip kit 1


Hey everyone! I was simply thrilled to get my hands on the December and January Hip Kits (I live in Canada so Kim ships to me every other month saves me a little money).

I thought these pages were so simple and soft and I have been wanting to scrapbook this photo from my sisters wedding and it all just worked together so well.

Smile Today Jan Hip Kit 2

These die cuts we got in the Heidi Swapp package made a perfect title, I was a little worried at the start as they were slightly bend and twisted from in the package but once I sprayed them down they worked wonderful!

Smile Today January Hip Kit 3


The background paper is Canson watercolour paper, I used Golden Titanium white acrylic paint to give me more of a contrast between the paper and the paint the white and off white look lovely together, especially after I added the Heidi Swapp colour shine to it.

The patterned paper that is backing the layout I think is from the December hip kit, but I can no remember for sure. If you need to know leave a comment and I will find out for you.

Let’s Bake


Hey everyone! Christmas is so close, and I am almost ready!! One of the last things I do to prepare is a bunch of baking and this past weekend that included a crazy amount of cookie baking (I think its my sons favorite activity). So here I am scrapbooking a few instagram pictures of the cookies we made on the weekend.

Cookies 2

I am a subscriber to the Hip Kit Club scrapbooking kit, and on the member forum on facebook, Kimberly gave us a weekend challenge and this is the layout I did for the challenge. The recipe that needed to be used for the challenge was using an image she posted as inspiration for the layout (that is where my stenciled backround came in to play), include a minimum of three fonts in your title, use stamping on your project (this is difficult to see on my layout but on the bright green paper I stamped falling snow in versamark and embossed it in silver), include gold or silver, and use a minimum of three patterned papers.

Cookies 3


It was a challenge for me to make sure I had everything included that is for sure! I rarely follow a recipe or sketch for my layouts, but it was fun to play along!

Hey Punk

Punk 1

Hey everyone! I have recently signed up for the Hip Kit Club monthly kits, Being as though I live in Canada, I have opted for shipping two kits together to save a few dollars, which means that I have just received the October and November kits from them (I actually got them a couple of weeks ago but have just started playing with them

I really do love these kits so far, there is a process video at the end of this blog post.

Punk 2

Is it sad, that at the time of writing this blog post, I am only 3 layouts into these 2 kits and I can not wait to get my hand on the December and January kits.
