Happy

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.

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.

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.

Lucky to be Cousins!

Lucky to be cousins

Hey everyone! I am here again with another layout to share with you all. I finally received my December Kit from Scraptastic on the 7th of January (Christmas slows all the mail down). I loved all the papers included in this kit!

Lucky to be cousins 2

My son and my niece are truly lucky to be as close in age as they are (3 weeks apart). I just felt this photo was perfect to show that. Just a simple lunch out with me and them playing at the table.

The background of this layout is Canson Watercolor paper. and I used Lindy’s stamp gang sprays to add colour (colours will be listed at the bottom of the post.

Best Family Ever

Best Family Ever 1

 

Hey everyone, I am usually a one or two photo’s on a page type person, I just seem to find more photos difficult to work with. So this layout has EIGHT, that’s right count them!

These photo’s are from back in August of 2014, my sister got married and everyone came up for the wedding, my parents rented a suit in a hotel across the street from the venue and we all hung out in there having a couple of beverages before the wedding.

Best Family Ever 2

 

I used the labels to list the people in order in the photo (you never know who may look at these and not remember everyone by their appearance at that time, or if I will always remember. Also I find I enjoy having names listed when there are many people in a photo.)

Best Family Ever 3

 

So on the bottom of the layout I used smaller photo’s to have closer looks at some of the people that were there, as well as all the children that were there.

Infinity Christmas 2014

Disney 1 xmas

Wahoo, I am on a roll two blog posts and its only the 4th of January, and I have a few more that are ready to go, maybe I will keep up posting this year (fingers crossed).

This is a photo from my instagram from Christmas morning, one happy little guy with his new video game.

So I started this layout by adding gesso and Izink’s to the backround then splattering some gold mist.

Disney 2 xmas

Layering up some of my scraps from the December Hip Kit and adding some tissue paper from my stash finishing the base for the photo to lay on,

disney 3 xmas

Embellishing with different bits and pieces from the kit brought this layout together rather fast, and the Elle’s studio grey letter stickers were perfect because there are so many of every letter I had no issue making the words I needed.

Disney 4 xmas

 

If you are looking for a kit to try, I highly recommend the Hip Kits, Kim seems to find the perfect balance between paper, and TONS of embellishments to meet any need you may run into on your layout.

Puddle Jumpin’

Puddle Jumpin 1

 

Hey everyone! Welcome to 2015, I hope this year treats you all well in whatever goals, aspirations, and just life in general. This is my first layout I have made this year. I did it yesterday before I began what I am calling the “great clean up of 2015”, but that’s another post for another day (if I ever complete the clean up).

Puddle Jumpin 2

 

This is my son in the summer time, I have a low spot in the front of my driveway, and I honestly believe, he secretly hopes for rain so he can go out and play in the puddle.

Puddle Jumpin 3

 

I really had fun with this layout and kept it very simple… I went into it with a goal. Aside from the 12×12 background paper, I only wanted to use scraps. Best part, I succeeded! I also got to use a bunch of my die cuts and stickers which was also exciting to me.
