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. 
The color kit-


Fun stuff! Lots of options here, paint, mist and more paint! Lovely. That Dina Wakley color is my favorite of her range. 
And for your paper needs, pick up the patterned paper kit or the cardstock kit or both!

Weeks In Review- New Videos & Layouts!

Hi! Popping in to share some projects that I created but didn't post on my blog, always playing catch up these days...

Let's start with my new YouTube series. I'm loving this one. It's called An Oldie but A Goodie, and I'm basically using older stash, be it papers, embellishments or tools. It's great to dig up some old favorites that were maybe slightly forgotten and neglected. Here are the layouts I made till now in the series-
1. Using some Sassafrass Foldies-


2. Maggie Holmes older collections-


3. I enjoyed playing with Maggie Holmes's first collection so I made another layout-


4. Using an older Hero Arts Stamp set and Stampin' Up inks-


5. Using an older Glitz Designs collection-


6. This one went in a different direction than I intended, but I love the result, I used Felicity Jane kits goodies-


And here's a link to the playlist with all the process videos for these layout.

Next up, my Hip Kits! May's kits were stuck in Germany for a couple of weeks, but they were so worth the wait! Here's the share video-


I'll do a recap of the layouts I created with the April kits in a separate post, as well as the two layouts I made with these kits.
In May I also made another project for the Cut Shoppe, using my Gelli Plate. Love it!



And the video-


And last but not least, my May Shimmerz Project. My new favorite color combo, featuring my new favorite spray called Blue Jeans-


Check out the video-


Thanks for visiting, I'll be back very soon with my Hip Kit Club kits recap! Have a lovely Sunday!

June Hip Kit Club Reveal!!

Hi! The June Hip Kit Club kits have been revealed, and they are lovely! Let's start with the goodies. First up, the main kit-


The main kit is full of lovely exclusives, and even one paper from the coveted and hard to find Fancy Free collection ;) My favorites here are the floral pieces in the papers and ephemera. I'm also loving the pinks and teals, surprise surprise ;) And those alphas are really cute!
Here's the embellishment kit for June-


I'm really excited about this kit (ok, I'm not that excited about those loose alphas... They DO NOT work with my laziness!). Gold word stickers? Yes please. Cute Fancy Free buttons?? YES please! Maggie Holmes rubber thingies?? YES YES. Exclusive puffy stickers?? YYYYYYYeepee!! OK, so I have a weird thing about puffy stickers. I'm aware.
Swoon.
Moving on.
Next is the color kit-


A great selection here. This triangle stencil is a great staple to have. Hot pink mist? Why thank you. I'm lucky to be on the Shimmerz design team, and I own the pink spray called Pink Stilettos. It's a great shade of pink that coordinates beautifully with the kit. 
PL kit-


This kit will answer all your pocket pages needs, it has a great selection of 4x6 and 3x4 cards, lots of alphas and stickers galore.
And for your paper needs, the two paper kits, a great addition to stretch your kit.
The patterned paper kit-


This includes all the papers from the main kit. The cardstock kit is very neutral this month, lots of white cardstock here!


That's it! While I'm waiting for my May kit to hit Austria, I can dream of June ;) Check out the Hip Kit Club website for all these goodies!
Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day!
