Summer Fun / Hip Kit Club + Free Paper Add-On!

Happy Sunday, friends!  I'm so excited to share my very first Hip Kit Club layout using the 2015 June Hip Kits!  I know I say this about the kits each month, but this one is GORGEOUS!  It's full of Fancy Pants, Simple Stories and Pink Paislee, Crate Paper and the color combos are just so pretty.  And the Project Life cards are exclusive this month...designed by the extremely talented Kim Watson.  I used two of them on my page.

Before we get to my layout, I wanted to let you know THIS!  If you've been thinking about subscribing to Hip Kit Club, now is the time!  If you use the Promo Code "Missy" when you subscribe, you will get a FREE Patterned Paper Add-On Kit!!  That is ALL the patterned papers in the Main you get TWO of all the patterned papers total!  That comes in really handy when you want to use both sides of each paper.  You can't beat that!

Okay, now on to my layout :)  I started with a sheet of white cardstock (from the Cardstock Kit), the Shimelle sunburst stamp and the Avery Elle ink pads that come in the Color Kit.  I used the Daisy ink to stamp around the page, and then I got adventurous and tried smooshing both paint colors onto plastic packaging.  It didn't work as well as some other inks....these are pigment inks and really are made for stamping.  However, it did work a little bit, but I covered a lot of it up.  I like the way the yellow is peeking out from behind everything.

This adorable sun is from one of the Project Life cards.  I cut it out and used it as an embellishment and then added a Simple Stories stick wood button to it.  You can also see the background a bit better...I like how that turned out in the end.

There are a lot of Fancy Pants tags in the kits...and they all have string attached to the ends already!  I used a lot of them on this page as well as some of the frames that come in the ephemera pack.

There are several elements from the Crate Paper Poolside collection, like these frames and an entire sticker sheet.  Don't these colors just look so gorgeous together?  I added in a bit of orange stitching.

Here's a look at the title area.  I combined another PL card with one of the Crate Paper stickers and Thicker words.  I colored one of the Evalicious wood veneer pieces and added in more of the Fancy Pants tags.  And those Elle's Studio alpha (numbers) stickers were the perfect match.

If you'd like to see how I put this layout together, here's a process video for you.  Hope you enjoy!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful Sunday!
