Hip Kit Club Jan 2017- Sketch Challenge-Inspired By The Movie THE CHOICE

Have any of you seen the movie THE CHOICE inspired by Nicholas Sparks book The Choice??? Oh my Gosh!! Ya’ll I cried! okay I cry watching every movie of his but I cried the UGLY cry. lol!! I won’t say anymore about the movie if you haven’t seen it but YOU MUST WATCH IT!!

Okay let take a look at this layout that was inspired by the movie!

So I used the goodies from American Crafts new line Hazelwood by Onecanoetwo and Pink Paislee new collection Moonstruck! they both are beautiful collections and I couldn’t wait to get started!


I went in with my Shimmerz spray in Smoke. I wanted to give the feeling of start dust falling off the moon. I feel like this really gave the layout a romantic or mystical feel. Judging by the photo, this is not a romantic or mystical photo but I do love these two to the moon and back! awww see what I did there.

I am also loving these rub on butterfly stickers from American Crafts! they are beautiful after applying them on a background. very pretty!


For my title, I wanted to use something minimal since I had a lot of colors and textures going on but I did want to use something with gold to incorporate with the gold on the top right corner of the layout. So I went with this timeless ephemera piece from the Pink Paislee collection and the Love sticker is from the American Crafts Hazelwood collection.


So here is the finished layout! I hope you all enjoyed this layout and after watching the movie, you will understand why it inspired me! So go watch it! My process video is linked below.



Hip Kit Club Jan 2017 Sketch Challenge- Happy Memories

Hey ya’ll!! I am back with another sketch challenge for the Hip Kit Club. This time I couldn’t wait to use that exclusive triangle paper that came in this months main kit. It was just screaming “use me!!” So I didn’t hold back, I went for it! Let’s take a closer look at the details of this layout.


Here is the Sketch that Kim Watson designed. Although its similar to my last layout, I love giving each sketch my own take on how I see it. That’s what I love most about sketches. It really gives you a foundation and you can alter it any way you like!


So I new right away that I wanted to do some mixed media. So I pulled out my water colors and used one of the pinkish orange colors. I use to love water colors as a kid and forgot how fun it was to mix colors and see them dance all over the paper when adding more water, so now as an adult I have that same appreciation for them. Funny how being a kid again can really allow you to escape the trap they call adulthood. lol!


For my title, I wanted to keep in simple but interesting. So I used this HAPPY from the exclusive ephemera pack from the Hip Kit Club. I also used the studio calico puffy letter stickers. I like using different colors and fonts when creating a title. I like to keep thing interesting!


Well I hope you all enjoyed this layout and as always there is a process video linked below! Thanks!!
