Pastel colours and dramatic black and white photos!

Hello lovely creativity HKC friends! Its Felicity here.  I'm so excited to sharing my page today. I have used the Hip Kit October kit and absolutely love all the pastel tones with a little blue.
Now, I hope your sitting down and no its not a blue moon, Tee hee, but... I have not used white cardstock as my background. I know right! This page is one of my favorites!

So besides that difference, I really wanted to also use the big chipboard words that came in the kit. Now lets be honest, I did start with this page laid out on white cardstock, but then as I was 'dreaming' of what to do with the background, shuffling papers, as you do... I came across the pink fresh studio paper and it just matched so perfectly.

Once I then 'transferred' everything over to that background paper, it looked, what I think is described as magical! It just all fitted and fell into place.  I loved adding in lots of embellishments from the ephemera pack, finished off with fussy cut flowers.

Lots of love and butterflies

Hello lovely scrappy friends!! I'm a layout using the main kit from October Hip kit club. Although I did sneak just teeny tiny bit of the colour kit and embellishment kit in, but only a smidgen.

I love the embellishments in the kit from pink fresh studio. I used a lot and true to my layering style! I love also fussy cutting out some of the flowers  as well. Nice and relaxing with a hot cuppa and your feet up!

Now if you look closer, you will see my photo is a tiny blurry from my son. But I wasn't worry, because I need to document this moment. So to combat that I turned the photo black and white, which suited the page perfectly and then layed in some embellishement to look like they had depth from the photo. Hope that made sense, hard to explain in words. (which my process video, link in the next post).

I also loved all the stars. I did um and argh about using them, you know over thinking, its night time, do stars go with butterflies... those thoughts aside and a gentle reminder, there is not right or wrong, just have fun with the kit. I loved the stars there, to add more detail. I wanted to add a heap more paper in the page, but regardless of what i did (off camera because I fiddle for a good few hours) that i kept going back to this design.

Im pretty happy with this, but its made easy with the kit being so wonderfully put together, that it makes creating so easy. Not to mention how jam packed full they are!!

Hope this inspires you with your kits :)

Till next time...

Repetitive photos in Project life

 Over at Hip kits last week, we were looking at grateful projects. I love the idea that this week we are looking at grateful projects.  When it comes to project life, I like to think of it as documenting many photos and recording memories.

My daughter has a very loved Teddy since she was born. This Ted dries many tears, takes away a lot of pain, comforts her and showers her with endless love. These are the memories  I don't to miss and the photos I want to look back on in many many years time with her to show her much this Ted was loved. 

I had a series of photos taken of her with Ted, which truly reflects her love for Ted. So I thought that all the photos was great in her project life album.  
So when it comes to project life, don't be afraid to use repetition to tell the story. The idea of project life, for me, is to put all the memories and moments in one place. I loved also being able to change some of the photos to black and white to create more interest and a little drama.

The project life kit from October, was perfect with the beautiful tones of mustard, pinks, blue and reds. The unique project life cards again, make it so easy to create a beautiful spread and not to mention all the beautiful Pink fresh studio embellishments.

I challenge you this weekend, to record something that your truly grateful and thankful for. 
Be sure to share them in the forum :)

Happy creativity week!!

Earthy tones with pinks and blues ;)

Who's seen the Hip Kit October kits? Its so beautiful, with lovely earthy tones, blues, pinks and greens. The colours are so relaxing and that's exactly how I felt when I used this kit :)

Those pink fresh tags, got me the first time I opened my kit. So glad I got to a feature layout with them :) I had this idea of putting string down the page and then having my tags and embellishments hang. I think it looks nice an artistic!! tee hee.
 I also loved the colour kit too, with all the Shimmerz peeking out, adds more depth to the page.  Those tags and embellishments, truly speak for themselves.

  The chipboard letters, half dipped in a shimmer of gold, just add a perfect little touch to the page. 
Here is the process video for you :)
