Them frames!!

 I was pretty excited to be given the task  from Hip Kits to use of 'frames', because those Vicki Boutin frames in the June kit are so pretty! I wanted to use them all, I tried!! Tee hee. 

I wasn't real sure of my design of this page when I started, but I did know I wanted to frame a series of photos. Instead of having all faces in the frames, i cropped out some details in my daughter clothing. This also adds more colour to the page and different detail. 

I've always admire the 'sun ray' design in many projects, so I decided to give that a try with the frames. I love how it turned out. 

Its a very busy design for me, but I love the colour and all the details.

half way through the year with Project life!!

Just popping in today to share a cute Project Life page using the Hip Kit June project life kit. I love all the exclusive cards again, so unique and bright!

Tons of embellishments to choose from, lots of journal spots and stickers. Sure makes putting project life pages together easy.

 Half way through the year as still upto date with the kids albums. Miracles do happen uh!! Tee hee
Hows everyone else going with Project life this year?

Happy, cute colourful pretty things!

Oh its fun to document memories. I know a lot these there, I wouldnt be able to remember if its wasnt for Project life.

 There were a few photos that I need to include in this page, but thate weren't real eye catching! So I deceided to use the exclusive project life cards as little flaps. Not only is intereactive, but its fun.

I held the little flaps together with some simple blanket stitching. Looks a bit cute I think!

Just by simply hiding 'unattractive' photos, gives more opportunity to make things look prettier!!

Heres the little process video too.

Its Friday!!

I am so excited to share with you this super cute Mini album I have made using the June Hip Kit. 

I used there one of the exclusive Project Life cards, and turned it into a flap to hide a little bit of journaling. I have held the flap down with some hand stitching. 

Then I created another little flap for more interaction and interest with some of the papers in the main kit, and finished it off with that cute wooden circle piece. Again I used hand stitching to hold it together and some machine zig zag stitching. 

I loved the sticker sheet from Crate Paper, Oasis collection, there some really nice words that allowed me to tell the story with them.

I then created a little pocket to pop in extra photos and jorunalling too. Decorated with that cute puffy sticker from Bella Bl'vd. 

Then onto the other side of the album. I  hand cut out some of the scallops from Pink Pasilee and layed them on, finished off with some embellishing.

There we have the other side! Its so bright, colourful and interactive. I love it!! 

Here is the process video of my mini album.

Cute cars, bikes, photos, colour...

How pretty is the June kits from Hip kits! I am so in love with lots and lots of it, but when I first opened my box of goodness I was drawn to the Vicki Boutin paints, the stencil (colour kit) and then the super super cute Lovely day paper with all those cute cars and bikes.

Call me crazy, but, I did sit and fussy cut a lot of these cute cars and bikes out, i just couldn't help it. I then had an idea that I would created a background with the paints and stencil and put the cute little cars on top. Then one thing lead to another.

Sometimes when we create, we have to just simply start and honestly, that can be hardest part for me. I generally like to try and visual everything first, but not this time i didnt have a vision. But I just love how this turned out. I even did something very different for me and cut my photo into a shape!

Of course I add a ton of hand stitching and machine stitching too.

There is so much prettiness and exclusives in this kit.
I'm off to play again!!!

Versatility and value go hand in hand.

You know when you get a hip kit and your like "wouldnt it cool to just use everything?" Because these kits are chockas full of prettness, I do struggle to kit it. Even after 4 layouts, a few project life pages and a Mini album.

Well, the May kit I killed!! All I have is scraps, maybe i would get a few cards or tags, but that's it friends. I have done 6 layouts, 3 Project life pages and a Mini album. Yep, friends, that value for money uh!

I really wanted to use more those exclusive alphas in the kit. The colour was like, Oh my... so pretty and the font, yeah, beautiful. So I decided to put some words that describe Missy Moo vertically on the page. Of course I had to add some hand stitching.

I love those Prima watercolours too that came in the colour kit. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, considering it was my 10th project with the kits!!

Go grab them friends, you wont be disappointed!!
