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 :(
