Hip Kit Club August Reveal +New Layouts!!

Hi! The August 2015 Hip Kits have been revealed on the 15th, and they are soooo gorgeous!! Let's get started!

That's the beauty a.k.a the main kit. Full of brand new Pinkfresh Studio and Crate Paper Wonder collections. Puffy stickers!!! I am one happy gal!
Next up is the embellishment kit-

Always a fun one, for August we get some more Pinkfresh goodies as well as some Dear Lizzy chipboard (always a favorite of mine) stickers and gorgeous gold foiled thickers. Yummy indeed!
What's in the color kit for August you ask?

Fun stuff! Kim Watson from the DT designed these exclusive and oh so gorgeous stencils. Those clouds... They can be used with inks, mists, paints and the kit includes two bright lovely Dylusions paints. Can't wait to play with this one!
Next up is the PL kit-

Kim did her magic here again and designed these lovely cards. To accompany them we get those gorgeous gold dipped AC tags in my favorite colors. And some chipboard hearts. And tons of cute alphas from Pinkfresh Studio. And gold Heidi Swapp tabs and labels. Love it!
For all your extra paper needs, there is the patterned paper add on, my pick for if-I-could-only-have-one-add-on conundrum. For August is includes all the papers from the main plus another gorgeous paper from Pinkfresh studio and gold dot vellum.

Hello my poor neglected blog and readers! Sorry I haven't written in a while, but I have been scrapbooking and creating! So what's new?
Last Thursday I had a new layout go up on the Hip Kit Club blog-

And the video-

Tomorrow I will have a new layout on the Hip Kit blog, so don't forget to check it out! Here's a sneak-

I also posted a chit chat video, for some face to camera time! It's all about scrapbooking and life stuff update-

In the mixed media arena, I've been playing with my Dina Wakley paints in my art journal and having a blast-

And the video-

Another fun thing going on on my YT channel this week is my first video in my new scrap my stash game series. I listed pretty much all of my supplies (well, the ones I could think of lol)-

Then I cut them all up and placed in a bag-

Next I grabbed some photos and pulled some supplies from my bag (no peeking!!)-

HEre's what I pulled- puffy stickers, Maggie Holmes embellishments, modeling paste, Lindy's stamp gang mists, neocolor 2 and Crate Paper Oh Darling collection.
I picked some pieces from the Oh Darling collection I thought went with the photos, and according to them chose my mists and neocolors to create this lovely color palette-

And here's the finished layout, it was so much fun to make!

Check out the video-

So what's next? I have a fun video coming soon to my channel, here's a hint-

A week in Review- Lots of New Videos!!

Hi! I just wanted to write this post, cause there's been a lot going on this week on my YouTube channel, so I thought it would be convenient to summarize it a little, in case you missed something.
I posted another art journaling video on Saturday, this time I played with Ranger paint dabbers in lovely pastel colors. Here it is-

I am super excited to teach 2 workshops in Norway in September, here are some sneaks of what we'll be doing-

Continuing with the mixed media theme, I posted the first video for the Crazy Paper challenge Kitty Scrapper, 311Vandal and I are doing, where we are using some of our craziest papers! Check it out and check out their amazing videos too (all links are in the info box below the video on YouTube)

Another challenge I took on was using my Spectrum Aqua markers to create a double PL spread with the amazing Inkie Quill-

This week the June Hip Kits landed on my desk, and they are summery and gorgeous! Stay tuned for a fun little tutorial this weekend.
Here are the kits in all their glory-

I Am Challenge- Felicity Jane Blog

Hi! Today I wanted to share my take on the I Am challenge over on the Felicity Jane blog. The challenge is to make a layout about myself, which, I admit, is really a challenge for me. I usually document the here and now, we did this and that, but I thought it would be fun to play along!

I was inspired by the gorgeous Felicity Jane kits to pick some pretty bright papers, and here's my layout-

I was thinking about my title all day before I actually managed to get to my scrap table. I knew it was gonna start with I Am, but I had no idea what would come next. And then this sentence just got stuck in my mind.
I am living my (everyday) dreams.
And I feel like that most of the time :)
I am lucky, I am blessed, I am healthy, I have a family I adore, parents and grandparents that love and support unconditionally. I dream of bigger things, yes, most definitely, but most days I am happy to live my everyday life, to hear my daughter's laughter, to hold my husband's hand, to talk to my grandmother on the phone.
It's the little things. It's totally the little things. The little joys, the little moments. The home we create for ourselves, our safe place that is full of life and love.

And back to scrapbooking now ;) Here are some close ups-

And a last minute addition, that puffy rainbow just jumped on my page!

Thanks for visiting! I'll be back tomorrow with a week in review since there's been a lot going on this week! Have a great day!

July Hip Kit Club Reveal!!!

Yes, it's that time of the month again, my second favorite after kit arrival day ;)
The July Hip Kit Club kits have been revealed and are up on the website. Let's start with the main kit, shall we?

Summery and colorful, the July kit has some Crate Paper (always a favorite here!), October Afternoon and Elle's Studio goodies. I am so happy to get the Crate Poolside Chipboard sheet!! It's always my favorite embellishment. And those pop drops... Yes, please!!
Next is the embellishment kit-

Love these frames and washi from Simple Stories! And that stamp, just perfect for summer (Lazy afternoons is my middle name!!).

Color kit anyone? I love the new Distress colors of 2015, and we get two here! Twisted Citron ink is lime prettiness. Coral? Yes and yes. A perfect combo to go with the stencil, stamp and texture paste. The Ranger paste is one of my favorites and I'm out of mine so perfect timing!
Next is the Project Life kit, with exclusive cards designed by the talented Kim Watson. It matched the other kits perfectly, which works great for me, since I mix my pocket pages with my 12*12. And I can NEVER have enough puffy stickers, thank you very much.

There patterned paper kit includes all the papers in the main kit, and its a great affordable way to stretch your kit, not to mention saving you that tough choice of what side to use!

 Last but not least is the cardstock kit, that has a beautiful mix of colors this month, staples like white, vellum and craft, along with happy colorful yet usable ones.

 Which kits will I be getting for July? The answer is clear, all!! Love these summery colors, corals, soft yellows and great neutrals. Makes me think of summer!
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
