No More Smiles / Hip Kit Club

Happy Sunday, friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day yesterday.  We had a nice relaxing day followed up with dinner at Cracker Barrel.  We are two of the biggest goofballs, so we're really not into the whole roses & romantic dinner thing...haha :D  We opted for some home cookin'....and it was awesome!  My birthday was Friday, and guess what my husband got me....a new video camera!  I'm going to start creating process videos as soon as I can figure out a tripod situation....yay!  I'm excited about it.  I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Here's my latest layout for Hip Kit Club using the 2015 February Kits.  It was up on the blog Tuesday.  I played around with the Dear Lizzy stencil that comes in the Color Kit.  It's so very detailed as you can see!  The Color Kit also contains two bottles of blue and pink Dylusions Spray Inks, which I also used on this.  I mixed the Calypso Teal with some modeling paste to achieve this look....and I think it's just a stunning color.

I used a lime green gelato to add in some greens to match the green papers and embellishments.  I added some machine stitching and some tangled thread as well.  I just love how the gelato looks over that blue paste!

I raised up this cute chipboard camera using pop dots and added a cute enamel dot to the center.  These pink Thickers come in the Embellishment Kit and go perfectly with the Bubblegum Pink Dylusions Spray.  I cut the word "smiles" on my Cameo and just free-hand traced around the edges.

Here's a close up of the paste, layering and stitching.  I colored that "Daily Life" wooden veneer piece with a gelato.

And one more close up of the pink.  I can't tell you enough how I love getting messy on my pages!  I just love the random look it gives amongst all the papers and embellishments!

I hope this gives you some ideas on what you can do with the stencil and the Dylusions.  I'll be back up on the Hip Kit Blog Tuesday evening with my next layout using the 2015 February Kits!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
