Happy New Year 2020 / Hip Kit Club

Hello again, friends!  I'm back today to share my newest layout for Hip Kit Club.  This is my first layout using the 2020 January Hip Kits...woo hoo!  They are full of beautiful Pinkfresh Studio goodies, and the colors are my favorites!

My theme for last week was to use a Hip Kit cut file & circles.  I modified one of the cut files and only used the 2020 part of it.  These are some fun photos of me and my sister on January 1st.  We worked out together, so I wanted to document this first fun thing in 2020.  I used my own different sized circle punches to create the circles.  I used several patterned papers as well as some of the Pocket Life cards. 

Did you get the Cardstock Kit this month?  The colors are just stunning, so I pulled this gorgeous shimmery grey sheet to use as my background.  I felt it was  neutral enough to make all the other colors pop and still pull the greys from the photos out.

The lighting is kind of tricky on my close-ups.  I think the grey background plus the outside lighting on this day made it difficult to get good shots.  Hopefully you can still see the true colors.  On the background, I smudged a lot of white gesso behind where all the circles are.  I used all three Lindy's Gang Magical Powders from the Color Kit.  I added some darker shades of grey, some pinks and also some green splatters.  It's very soft and subtle.  I roughed up the edges of all the circles and added adhesive foam behind them to create some dimension.

I fussy cut "happy new year" from a Pocket Life card and layered it over some yellow thread and the 2020 cut file.  I used a few Pinkfresh Studio die cuts and stickers here, which I also popped up using adhesive foam.  I decided to do a little machine stitching as well with black thread.

There are also a lot of circle elements in the Pinkfresh Studio My Favorite Story collection.  I used a few of those amongst the circles also.

I tore this Hello 2020 from another Pocket Life card.  I really love the pops of black and white with all these pretty colors.  I did machine stitch around the edges of some of the circles for extra texture and pops of black.

I wanted to add something to this circle, so I added Let's Do This using the small white puffy alphas from Pinkfresh Studio.

I added a few hearts on top of the photos.  Side note:  optical legs are nowhere near this long...haha!  I'm only 5'2"... :D

A few more close-ups :)  I added some black splatters using some Shimmerz from my stash.

I hope this inspires you in some way.  The 2020 January Kits are sooooo good.  I am excited to dig back in my for my next page!

I do have a process video for this over on the Hip Kit Channel HERE.  My channel is still lost...somewhere out there in hacker land.  (((((Sigh))))))

Have a great day!
