Hip Kit Club: Chillin

Hi there! I am stopping by to share a layout I made using the beautiful March kits from the Hip Kit Club.

Alex Gadji - Chillin

That's my boy, chillin' in his favorite Fatboy sack.

I love the flourish paper and even though it bags to be colored, I chose to left it as it was. Reason 1: I am really not into coloring and I would probably ruin the paper. Reason 2: I wanted to add color with splatters and embellishments instead.

I used one of the pocket cards from the project life kit to add my journaling.

I hope it shows how much I love these kits!! And believe me when I tell you that they are practically scrapping themselves! I made three layout in no time... Everything just works so perfectly well together. But I guess that's the whole idea with the kits, right? :-)

Thank you so much for taking your time to stop by today!

True beauty...

...comes from within.

Alex Gadji - True beauty

It's been a while since the last time I played with Pink Paislee's Bella Rouge collection. I kinda missed it!

I took this photo of my daughter when she didn't really expected me to. She is so into posing right now, which makes me appreciate these little candid moments even more :-)

I used the whole sheet of puffy glitter stickers as it is. I like the way it looks peeking out from behind the photo.

Hip Kit Club: Meow

Hi there! I am so excited to share my first layout made with the gorgeous March kits from the Hip Kit Club!

Alex Gadji - Meow

I should have known that she was up to something when she locked herself in the bathroom! LOL

I have mixed both the main kit, the embellishment kit and the project life kit.

I love using PL-cards for journaling on my layouts.

I love the Handmade paper from the Crate Paper Crafts Market collection (the one with big letters on it!). I just had to cut them out for my title. Since the paper didn’t have an “O” and I really needed one for "meow", I used the golden circle from the Pink Fresh Studio Up in the Clouds Die Cuts included in the embellishment kit.

Hip Kit Club: Happy Everyday Moments

Hi everyone! Ready for more Hip Kit February kit inspiration? Here is a layout I made about our little, happy everyday moment. He is the sweetest, coziest little boy in the world in the evening. He really knows how to enjoy his bottle. It can take him an hour to drink it up! :-)

I have used a lot of papers from the WRMK Love Notes 6x6 paper pad on this one. I love how all these pretty patterns look together!

The little Monday-Sunday chipboard bricks from Crate Paper were perfect for the everyday-theme of this layout. I added them here and there all over the page.

That would be all for today! Thanks for stopping by!

Hip Kit Club: The Sweetest

Hi there! Today I wanted to share a layout I made with the February kits from the Hip Kit Club.

I went back in my photo library and picked one of the photos when the little man was still just a baby. Can't believe how tiny he was ♥

I love the little touch of dark blue in this kit. It really adds that little extra something! Kimberly has the best eye for things like that :-)

Have a lovely day!

2nd birthday

Hi guys! I realized that I have a LOT of Amy Tan Stitched layout to share! I've been creating with the Stitched collection for DESIGN in PAPERS, but I haven't been as good when it comes to showing them on my personal blog.

Here is one of them. Adrian's 2nd birthday. He looooves fire engines, so I just to make him one as a cake. I followed Betty Crocker's instructions and it turned out pretty good :-)

Some mornings I almost get a heart attack when I walk by a mirror! This was one of those mornings... Totally worth a layout ;-)

I love those big enamel "dots" from the Stitched collection! Just have to link them up to the Enamored with Enamel issue over at Paper Issues.

Thanks for stopping by!
