What's Happening In December...

Hi there! Just wanted to drop a line and say it's gonna be a little quieter here for the next few weeks due to the holidays, family and life stuff. I will have some new projects up this month, best way to keep up with that is to subscribe to my YouTube channel.

My new online class with Jen Schow is now available, we've had a great response and feedback, and we're loving all the projects participants are sharing in the class FB group. Click here (or scroll down) for more details on that.

Other exciting news are that I will have a new class on Big Pictures Classes at the end of December, so watch out for that, it's full of really fun mixed media techniques!

And just a couple of sneaks from projects coming this month-

I wish you a lovely holidays season!

      November Hip Kit Club Kits Revealed!!

      Hi! The November Hip Kits have been revealed yesterday, and they are just lovely. Hip Kit Club does the more holiday themed kits in November, so everyone (including us internationals) can have their kits before December begins, just in time to document! However, most of the items in the main kit are not too themey and can be used on any layouts. Also, the November kits are unique because they contain a lot of exclusive items designed by the talented Kim Watson from the design team. Let's just see what's coming!

      Start with the main kit-

      Pink... Aqua... Lovely light neutrals... Whimsical images... Swoon!! I am loving the color scheme of this kit. There are 6 exclusive papers, as well as adorable puffy alphas and stickers! 

      The embellishment add on has some more fun items-

      Love the alphas! There are some PL cards, and lots of cute little bits and pieces to play with!

      The color kit is metallic and beautiful, whether you're a gold or silver (or both, like me!) person, it has both, along with a fabulous exclusive stencil-

      Heidi Swapp's gold mist is one of my all time and go to favorites, so I'm really happy to stock up on it! Love the stencil, just perfect for some added bling.

      The paper add ons are a great way to stretch your kit, and not have to deal with that horrible dilemma, which side of the patterned paper should I use??

      And the cardstock add on-

      Beautiful colors that match the kits perfectly!
      Check out the Hip Kit Club website for all the details. Thanks so much for visiting, have a lovely weekend, and don't forget to stay tuned for the reveal of the December Daily type kit on the 19th of October!!

      Week in Review- New Videos+ Layouts!

      Hi! Another week starting, and I am busy working on all sorts of scrappy projects, for design teams and some online classes, I talk (a lot) about it in my September chit chat video-

      The September Hip Kit Club kits landed on my doorstep last Friday and I had to share all the goodies and my oh so insightful (not) observations-

       My first project as part of The Cut Shoppe design team went up about a week ago, I loved making it, the layout is the title page for my Croatia vacation album. Here's the video and a link to The Cut Shoppe blog for all the details-

      I posted a mixed media video with a really fun transfer technique I'm excited about, check it out-

      This is the layout I create on the video, I used some gorgeous printables by Wilna Furstenberg-

       And some other process videos using the August Hip Kit Club kits showing how I created these layouts-


      This one is using some stencils and Dylusions paint, watch the video to see how I got that lovely faded look!

      So what's to come you ask? I have lots of process videos coming up on my YouTube channel, best way to follow those is to subscribe on YouTube to my channel. In the next couple of week I'll be sharing another layout for The Cut Shoppe, new projects using the September Hip Kits that feature Dear Lizzy's and Amy Tan's brand new collections just to name a few :) Here are some sneaks-

      And last but not least, the October 2015 Hip Kit Club kits have been revealed and are available on the website, and they are GORGEOUS. Love the color scheme! Check my previous post to see all the images of the kits or hop on over to the Hip Kit Club website!
