Rudolph Ready - November Hip Kits!

Good morning!! I am off to take my kids to swimming bright and early, but thought I would share a page I created with the November Hip Kit Club kits!

This kit is more of a seasonal kit, with TONS of exclusives - wood veneers, patterned papers, alphabet stickers, enamel shapes, PL cards... so many good things!

I created this page with the mood board for this month in mind, using the color scheme, and the reindeer in my mind. I used some of the November cut files on this page as they went with the mood board.

For once I added in some journaling! I know, I rarely do, but I think with these types of layouts, some things require explanation :)... and really, it is a good practice.

That's it for me today ! I am off to swimming and then start some holiday baking for the school bake sale this week! That is my plan for this weekend :) Enjoy yours!

Basic Grey blog - Typeset

Good morning! I am just stopping in on this TGIF to share some weekend inspo for you using the Basic Grey collection - Typeset!

I created this page for the Basic Grey blog HERE, using tons of diecut stickers and layering to create this page:

As you can see, I started with a simple grid design and used lots of stickers to add to the grid to layer it up! Add in some dimensional foam adhesive and you are golden - I mixed stickers, wood veneer and chipboard in too for even more dimension.

Adding a little stitching detail to stickers makes them look like you purchased them that way! Use chipboard to add dimension to other embellishments without using foam adhesive.

That's it for me today! I will be back tomorrow with a fun Hip Kit Club holiday themed layout!

Jillibean Soup cards

Good morning!! I am really quickly stopping by to share a few cards I made this month for Jillibean Soup! They have come out with new ADHESIVE SEQUINS and I had to use a bunch to create these simple cards.

Look how pretty those sequins look together all lined up in rows like a little rainbow... and so easy to do when you don't have to fuss with a bunch of glue either!

That is it for me! I will be back asap with more projects :) Lots going on!

new Basic Grey - Dear Heart!

I am a little late in posting these projects that I did for the new Basic Grey release - Dear Heart! I was happy to work with these pretty papers as part of my first DT assignments with them!

The collection is obviously of a "love" theme, but there are some great any-use papers in the collection, I particularly love all that mint green!

Lots of fun embellishments in this collection too, like the felt heart and mini pins you can see in this page.

Just a quick post for me today! Lots coming up on the blog and over at my digital cut file store - JustNick - so stay tuned!

One last Hip Kit page for October!

Hello hello! I am here to share one last page using the October Hip Kit Club kits!

I used some leftovers from another layout for this one here:

As you can see, I have a lot of little happy all over this page! I used the leftover "happy"s from a page I posted a few weeks ago, flipping over the patterns on the B-side of the Pink Paislee paper!

I added in some small punched circles, diecuts and even wood veneers to my stitched lines.

I really love how this page came out - and so quick too! I hope you will give this idea a try! I have another idea in my head swirling around with this concept... hope to give it a try soon!

Thanks for stopping by today :) I appreciate your visits !

Jillibean Soup Thankful album

This month at Jillibean Soup, we were challenged to create a project with the FREE printable that you can snag over on the website HERE and HERE

I created this mini album using these printables along with some of my favorite Jillibean Soup Mix the Media products! I used Happy Hues paints and some of the Stencil/Masks.

To see at the details, check out the Jillibean Soup blog or my process video on my YouTube channel

I hope you like this one! It's a new favorite for me :)

October Hip Kits - Cards!

HELLO HELLO! Today is my posting day over on the Hip Kit Club blog and I am sharing a few really easy peasy cards using the October kits.

The October kits have these really pretty frame/diecuts in the Pebbles Inc. pack. A great mixture of different types of frames with smaller diecut images. I chose a few different frames and went to town to make these cards.

The scallop frames look so nice all layered and stitched over the larger 4" frames. I love this sentiment that I clipped down from a sheet of Pebbles Inc. paper that was in the kit.

Super simple, but turned out cute

I used a scrap of a frame that I used on a layout last week for this card, turning the card sideways and adding a little twine from my stash.

I added the thanks sentiments from some diecut words in the Pebbles Inc. package, along with some Pink Paislee puffy flower stickers.

Lastly, I used the gold frame for this card, along with a smaller cream/white frame all stitched together with another cut apart from that Pebbles Inc. paper, layered with a Thinking Of You diecut pennant sentiment. Super easy!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you soon on the blog :)
