Smile, I Love You | Hip Kit Club | Mixed Media Monday using February 2021 Kits

Wednesday 24 March 2021


Hey everyone, I have a new layout and video to share today for Hip Kit Club. I'm using the February 2021 Kits which you can find on the website here. My assignment today is Mixed Media Monday and to create a rainbow effect.

I began with a sheet of Marshmallow cardstock. I then reached for my February Color Kit which has three colours of Shimmerz Paints: Razzeldazzel Berry, Tickle Me Turquoise and Dandy Lion. I used these to create some areas of colour on my background. I sprayed on the Razzeldazzel Berry but applied the others with the packaging technique.

I mixed a green colour using the red and blue and applied that too. Then I reached for some previous Color Kits for the other colours: Precious Posy and Meet Me @ Sunset from the January Colour Kit and Naughty or Nice from the December Colour Kit. I added these to my background too and added splatters of all the colours in the same colour-on-colour areas.

Once my background was dry I then put the rest of the layout together. I decided to embellish in a colour-on-colour style. I reached for the exclusive Hip Kit Club ephemera and phrase ephemera from the February kits and started to layer pieces over the same colour areas. In particular I loved the words in the phrase ephemera so I pulled out several of those that worked with my photo and added them around the layout.

I also spent some time fussy cutting rainbows from one of the patterned papers from the February kit and I also positioned those around the layout too. I then wanted to fill in some of the gaps between the embellishments so reached for smaller items: small ephemera hearts, enamel dots, adhesive brads and puffy stickers. Again I arranged these in colour order.

I added a navy border to my layout: it is quite subtle as you can only see it in a few places but I love that it adds an edge to my white background. I finished off with twiddles of gold thread.

Thank you so much for joining me today for this very colourful layout!

Happy scrapping

Perfect Moments | Bramble Fox and GoGo Getaway Collaboration

Saturday 20 March 2021


Hey everyone! I am playing along with a GoGo Getaway Cyber Crop challenge today as part of a collaboration with Bramble Fox. GoGo Getaway are hosting the Cyber Crop and collaborating with Bramble Fox, so head over to both Facebook Groups to play along - of course there are prizes to be won too!

The challenge I'm playing along with is Lorraine's 'only white' challenge. I've used white card, cut a cut file out of white (from Peartree Cut Files), backed it in vellum and created a shaker pocket title with it. I cut a snowflake from the same cut file multiple times and used that to create a background. I used black and white photos and white embellishments and added gems and sequins to the background too.

I really love creating all white layouts (also known as 'white on white') because they always look absolutely beautiful!

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping

Home Memories | Bramble Fox | March 2021 Fox Box


Hey everyone, I have a new layout and video to share today for Bramble Fox. I'm using the March 2021 Fox Box. I've used the 'Memories' title and arrow, as well as the light pink padlock and 'HOME' charm.

I have used a cut file by Peartree Cut Files which is a house shape with the word home. I added the word 'memories' to make my title 'Home Memories'. I've used a floral patterned background for my background paper from the January 20201 Hip Kit and have backed the cut file with light pink and coral pink cardstocks.

I added two photos either side of the cut file and added embellishment clusters around those. I added the little padlock and HOME charm perspextives to the photos too.

I finished off with some twiddles of gold thread and sequins by Spiegelmom Scraps. The background is a little busier than normal from my usual style but I think it works OK!

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
