October 2016 Hip Kits-Maximizing Pattern Paper

Happy Monday Friends!! It’s me Megan! I am back with another layout! Using the #October2016 kits!! For this layout I wanted to Focus on Maximizing Pattern Paper from the Main Kit. I went ahead and grabbed a couple of different pattern papers, that I thought went well together. I used the Maggie Holmes So Sweet pattern paper, American Craftspink Flamingo, and #dearlizzy Uptown pattern paper for my background.


For my #cutfile I used Kim Watson beautiful flower wreath! I used #americancrafts Stargaze card stock. I know I wanted my cut file to really pop off the page. Going into the layout I didn’t think I would be cutting up that beautiful cut file, but I did and I am so glad I did. I like how I adapted the cut file.



I also used some of the We R Memory Keepers#honeyimhome #stickers and #ephemera pieces. I didn’t want a big title, so I chose the Life is Better With Family Ephemera piece. Well I hope you all enjoyed this layout! Be looking out for the process video over on my #YouTube Channel!!



Layout Using My October 2016 Hip Kits.

Happy Tuesday sweet friends! I am back with a layout using my October 2016 Hip Kits for the first time! This month’s kit really inspired me. Not only is fall my favorite season but the month of October is right up there with Christmas for me. Going into this layout I used the Embellishment Add On Kit, Main Kit, and Cut Files.


So let’s talk a little about this layout. I couldn’t contain myself! I used about everything on this layout. I started with this wood paper from Maggie Holmes #gather #collection , then worked with those exclusive cut files from Kim Watson aren’t they beautiful! I used the Maggie Holmes 12×12 details pattern paper for my leaves. Since the paper was double sided, I got more out of the paper! So I flipped some of the leaves over on the pink side.



I knew I wanted to focus on two clusters and go crazy with the embellishments and that I did!! don’t judge me! ha ha! So i brought in some of the Simple Stories chipboard pieces from the #posh Collection. So now for the title. I couldn’t resist those beautiful #thickers from the #takemeaway collection from Paige Taylor Evans They were just screaming “use me on your layout” and I was like “how could I not!” lol!

I hope you all love this layout as much as I do! Be looking for the process video!!! #hipkitclub #hipkits#scrapbooking #memorykeeping #kits#americancrafts #maggieholmes #paigeevans#simplestories #wildheart


Sweet Summer Time!-HKC September 2016 Kits Project Life


Happy October! I am so excited for this month! Fall is my season and yes I love pumpkin EVERYTHING! I have started wrapping up our summer, putting away summer clothes, pool toys, and scrapbooking the rest of our summer photos. Which brings me to my first project for the Hip Kit Club Design Team!! So let’s take a look at my Project Life Layout.


Since I did not purchase the Project Life KIt I used the papers from the Main Kit & Paper Add On Kit to come up with my own cards. This is a perfect way to use up what you have.


Let’s first talk about the title. Looking at the Hip Kits September Embellishment Add On Kit I knew I wanted to use the Crate Paper Cute Girl Chipboard Accents. So I knew when creating this layout I needed to use a bold title. For the title I used Crate Paper-Maggie Holmes- Together Thickers. I love how these thickers have different sizes.


I just love these Chipboard pieces! Like I said before, if feel like crate paper did a great job looking into a little girls mind and making it come alive! I mean I’m certain my daughters thoughts look exactly like these chipboard pieces.


I love the flow of this layout and how the papers match my kid’s outfits, it was a perfect fit!


I hope you all enjoyed this and I am so excited for this journey! As always I have a process video listed below!
