Butterflies and more butterflies

 Hello everyone! I have a fun page using the Hip Kit club  February kit. What was the thing you saw when you received your kit? Flowers, BUTTERFLIES, dragon flies, hearts, words... yep you guessed, butterflies is what i saw first. Aren't they super cute. 

How could  I not fussy cut out the butterflies from the crate paper sheet and then layer them on a page. When I started this page, i had no plans what so ever. Zilch. But, one thing was that I had to use butterflies. I fiddle for a while with the placement of my butterflies and the design.

 But thats the fun part of being creative. Being able to just go with it and allow it to flow, no restrictions, no limitations.

I also loved the stencil and the distress ink pad. A girl after her own colour! 
I hope this inspires you today with your February kits and if anything, go and use those butterflies.. Tee hee

Quirky little girl!

Hello there friends, Felicity here with a fun layout using the January Hip kit. I have been waiting, perhaps a little impatiently, (tee hee) to use all those fun embellishments from Crate paper in the kit.

All the little facial expressions on the fruits, meant I had to choose a pretty funky fun photo. My little Missy moo can be sure a goose, that the embellishments truly helped me to document her quirky personality.  I also went back to something that I haven't done for a while, fringing. I thought it added a lot of fun and again more interest to the page.  I also loved fussy cutting out  some of the flowers from the exclusive paper that Kim Watson designed and also those cute houses!

I hope this inspires you today with using some embellishments and even going back to something you have done for a while.

Happy creating!

full of Xo's

 G'day G'day!!
 I have a super layed up page for you using the January kit which is full of some beautiful Pink Fresh goodies. 
I love the pink fresh chipboard sticker sheet that came in the project life kit. Because if anyone is like me and loves layering, then these are for you and you will understand my love for them! 

What about the pink fresh puffy stickers? They add some nice depth to the page as well and there nice a vibrant too. They have some really cute sentiments on them as well. 

But can we talk about those tassel bows and those layed hearts as well? I love both of these sooooooOOooo much. The tassels add a nice amount of fiber to the page and look at that yellow one tucked in my cluster. There super super cute. 
What about the hearts? because they are layed and are stitched, they also add some really soft detail to your page without needing to add to much as well. 

I challenge you to go and grab all the pink fresh goodness from your kits and put as many as you can onto a page like me!! 

One tip: Have fun!!

pretty flowers and cute houses!

 Hello everyone! Happy Weekend :)
I want to share with you a layout using the ever so colourful and bring Hip Kit January kit.  I couldnt go past the exclusive flowers that kim watson designer, so layed in as many as i could, There so colourful and perfect to add in as layers and by themselves. Not sure they last longer than fresh flowers though. Tee hee
 I decided to again use the destress ink pads as paint, so I stamped straight on to plastic, then add water and put them straight down on some gesso. I love how the water interacts with the ink leaving the mixed media bright and also a beautiful texture being ink.
 I also admired the cute houses on the crate paper and wanted to add them as layers as well. It was really fitting for the page, because these little munchkins all live under my roof and they truly make this home a blessed and magical place.

The Vicki Boutin sticker sheets, where also perfectly added. I left them the black adn white because it fitted well with the photo. The scratter of butterflies and the little labels tucked, help balance the page with the colour.

It so fun to play with the January kit and I can't wait to share more. I aplogoise for my video cutting out too, my battery ran out and also the lighting is not the best because we had some very dull weather and the sun was not coming out for  a few days. But, its perfect crafty weather.

Hope this inspires you this weekend to grab your kits and play :)

Their love of school.

Hello everyone! Im here to share with you a fun project life with a whole of love! Being Valentines day this week, I thought I should a project life page with 'love' being the inspiration. When we think of love, 80% of the time we might think of our partner, husband or spouse. For me, my thoughts turned to my kids this time.

My middle child is always leaving little 'love notes' around the house for everyone. "I love you Daddy" "Your the best ever"... those sort of sweet notes. A lot of these notes he does is when he comes either home from school or on the school bus.  I then turned my thoughts to their love for school. Now, don't get me wrong, love for school is not always there! Promise!! Tee hee But I wanted to make sure I documented the things that the kids come and tell me about school.

The love of the library, their sweet little friends and even the little conversations we have in the car whilst waiting to go to school.  These little times in their lives, is something I probably don't document enough, but there important part to 'their' story in life, part of their love story.

I loved the Hip kit Club January  exclusive project life cards, because they truly fit in with any love theme, any story we want to document. So I hope that as we see a whole of love this week, that we also think of the other little forgotten things that bring us joy and share the love. I hope this inspires you with your Project life kit today!

1, 2 ,3 lets paint...

 Morning :)

I'm super excited to be sharing my first project using the January Hip kit. Its so vibrant and not to mention the amazing exclusive products in there. Love love LOVE :) 
As normal, I used the colour kit and had a lot of fun. With the distress inks and the Vicki boutin watercolour stickers I used a paint brush and treated the ink pad like paint and it works so well. I just add some ink onto the brush and then put it in some water that I had on some plastic to make it easier to move it around on the stickers. (Be sure to watch to my process video so you can understand what Im trying to say! tee hee )

I had lots of fun then layering in embellishments and papers and would have to say this page is one of my favorites and is now hanging on my wall :) 
Pull out your colour kit and inks and I challenge you to try it with a paintbrush!
Have a fun creative weekend.

Dont worry be happy!

Hello, Felicity here.  I have a super fun page here today using the Hip kit December kit.  I loved using the empheria from the kits, so bright and colourful. Not to mention the Shimmerz that makes everything really pop on the cardstock.  I kept true to my layering style with lots of embellishing and had to use that beautiful yellow pom pom frame.
I finished off with backing my page and a few more layers around the edge which really make this page pop. I love how this turned out. 
Hope this inspires you to use your kit and create more beautiful things.

Here is the process video. Sorry its short, but my video camera battery went flat... rookie error :(
