Can You Believe This Crazy Hair?

Haha!  Yep...another fun layout to share today about my craziest and wildest child :D  It all starts with her unruly curly hair.  This girl is so full of energy...she never stops!  This hair is perfect for her.

I have been wanting to try something different lately, so I ordered myself a July kit from the Hip Kit Club.  I've made four layouts with it so far!  I'm having lots of fun.  What I like about it is that it includes items I didn't already have in my stash.  This is the first layout I created using the Main Kit, the Color Add-on, and the Stamp Kit.

You can really go a lot of different directions with this kit, so for my first one, I decided to create a rainbow of sorts.  I used the Sweet Cherry Color Shine from Heidi Swapp as a watercolor paint.  It dries very light...pretty much a pink color, so my photo was a perfect match since she's wearing a pink shirt.  I incorporated blue into the mix using this blue frame, and then I added in embellishments using all of those primary colors.

I used a Crafter's Workshop template to create these triangles, and I mixed and matched my title.  I used the blue alphas from the kit, some alpha stamps from my stash, and a Cameo cut using the red paper from the kit.

There are a lot of fun die cuts in the kit from October Afternoon.  I used pop dots on a few of them.  The chipboard stickers are so much fun!

I went crazy with these adorable Simple Stories stamps...all of these mini sentiments are perfect for almost any layout or card.  I added in my own washi tape and thread here and there.

I'll be sharing my other Hip Kit pages throughout the month.  I really am enjoying this kit...if you're looking for a club that will give you variety and bright colors, this is the one!

Thanks for looking, and have a great day!


  1. Just wanna say how much I love your work. Your layouts are just wonderful.
    They are so vibrant and colourful - you can feel the emotions.
    And having two beautiful girls to scrap about is not a bad thing either ;-)
    Love, Birgit
