Hi! Always playing catch up these days... Here are the projects I created with the lovely July 2016 Hip Kit Club kits, it's been really fun using them! There's a video tutorial for each one, so make sure you watch it to see how they came together.
And my August kit arrived last week, and it's fantastic! I'm showing the goodies in the unboxing video, and also sharing lots of tips on how to use them.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely scrappy Sunday!
It's that awesome time of the month again! The September 2016 Hip Kit Club kits are up on the website, and they are so so fantastic! Here they are in all their glory, make sure you check out the Hip Kit Club website for all the details on these lovelies-
I think the image speaks for itself. But I'll add some of my own words anyway. THOSE.THICKERS. They are from the new Dear Lizzy collection and they are perfect. Other favorites here include the word thickers, also from Dear Lizzy, and the patterned paper from Crate's new Cute Girl collection. Cute indeed, and perfect for my cuties at home.
Next up is another gem, the embellishment kit-
It's all good. Seriously good. I love the exclusive die cuts, they are such a great addition to all the goodies this month. They were designed by the super talented Claudia Van Rooijen (you can find her on YouTube and Etsy)! And those stickers by Crate. Sigh. Super cute, very whimsical, love love love it.
The August Color kit, is full of color, and I'm always excited about getting some new goodies to play with-
Those Prima oil pastels look delicious, and I'm looking forward to playing with them and sharing the results with you!
Let's move on to the PL kit, this is just a partial image, there are exclusive cards and they are beautiful.
I love the Amy Tan sticker book, so many fun images! And the exclusive tags are adorable.
And for your paper needs, there are the patterned paper kit and the cardstock kit. Both a must, in my book.
That's it! I think this is one of my favorite kits this year. So many good things. You can check them out and subscribe on the Hip Kit Club website. Thanks for visiting and have a lovely weekend!
Hi! We thought it would be fun to have a blog hop and get to know the team a bit better! We'll each answer a few questions, make sure you visit all the blogs participating!
I'll start with sharing the first layout I created for The Cut Shoppe, and still one of my favorites. It's the title page for our vacation album.
So here are a few Q & A-
1. How many times in a week, do you work on something scrapbook related?
Every day. It's not easy with a baby at home, but once it's nap time, I'm at my craft table!
2. What’s your favorite subject to scrapbook?
My kids of course!
3. What is your favorite color to use on your layouts/projects? What is your least favorite color?
It's a tie between aqua/mint and pink. I love wearing brown, but not on my layouts!
4. Why do you like using cut files on your layouts/projects?
I love using cut files because it gives such great detail, one can customize them to fit any layout, and they make designing a page much easier.
5. What are some of your other favorite hobbies? If you were not a scrapbooker, what other hobby do you think would consume most of your time?
I love reading, and photographing. I'd probably be spending my free time lost in a good book.
6. Tell us 5 things we don’t know about you!
I am a chocoholic, my favorite food is lasagna, my red hair is as natural as the bottle it comes in (I'm a red head on the inside though!), I speak 3 languages, and I have a cockroach phobia. I don't even want to see that word! Yuk!
There's also a giveaway!! I'll choose a random winner who will receive a 5$ gift card to The Cut Shoppe! So leave a comment for a chance to win. You can enter the giveaway till Sunday, July 10th. Winners will be announced on The Cut Shoppe blog on Wednesday, July 13th!
It is reveal time!!! My second favorite day on the month, right after kit arrival day. The July Hip Kit Club kits have been revealed and they are lovely.
Let's get started!! First up, the main kit-
The kits this month are again packed with exclusives. Favorite bits? I'm crushing on that watercolor stains paper (second from the left), and the Bella Blvd. rainbow one... The ephemera pack is awesome too!
Next up, the embellishment kit-
PUFFY STICKERS. Say no more. OK, there are also those cute Amy Tan rubber charms, some lovely gold stickers, but can we talk about the puffy stickers??? Gotta have them.
Moving on to the PL kit-
Yummy yum yum. Yes please! I'll take that.

Fun stuff! Lots of options here, paint, mist and more paint! Lovely. That Dina Wakley color is my favorite of her range.
