So Many Reasons to Smile | Hip Kit Club | Colour Challenge

Sunday 27 June 2021


Hi everyone, here is my latest layout for Hip Kit Club! I’m using the May kits and have been playing along with this week’s challenge which is a Color Challenge: to use rainbow colours! What an awesome challenge!
You can find the May Hip Kits on the Hip Kit Club website here:

And you can play along with the weekly challenges over on the Hip Kit Club Group on Facebook here:

I choose to go for a yellow background – I love scrapbooking with yellow, it’s so bright and happy and I am always drawn towards it. I created a folded down section at the top and then I backed the yellow sheet with white card. This gave me a good area of white space on the layout to work with.

I cut my photo into a circle shape and then went to town with my circle punches, cutting out all those fabulous circles from the Pinkfresh Studio Keeping it Real paper. I added these to my layout, raised on foam pads. There are big ones and little ones and every size in between! I also added some punched stars from the Pinkfresh Studio rainbow striped paper. I dotted these in between the circles. I also used enamel dots to fill in any gaps.

I added a rainbow title using Paige Evans phrase Thickers: So Many Reasons to Smile. What a wonderful title. I embellished the circles with phrase ephemera from Pinkfresh Studio Keeping it Read, added machine stitching around the outside of the yellow background and finished with splatters of white paint.

I really love how this turned out. Can I tell you a secret though? I looked at the wrong week for my challenge and actually made this layout for last week’s recipe challenge (squares, triangles, stars and circles) by accident – oops! Luckily it totally fitted the rainbow colour theme as I have ALL the colours on this layout!

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
