Scrapping with layers + yellow alert!

I hope where ever you find yourself, that you are having the BEST time?! Here are some of my projects using the May Hip kit & add-ons. I am really enjoying the vibrant patterned papers & embellishment combinations!!
This week I thought I’d focus on the gorgeous Pink Paislee goodies from the #citrusbliss collection included in the kits.

These photos are from a few years back, I find scrapbooking older photos as well as current ones, refreshing & keeps my albums fresh & interesting.
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @pinkpaislee #ppcitrusbliss #scrapbooking #12x12 #layout  @shopEvaliciousIt was the citrus slices paper that sparked the idea of using circles in this design, which in turn sparked the idea of using some of the citrus cut-outs to make flowers. They add great 3D interest to my circle clusters.
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @pinkpaislee #ppcitrusbliss #scrapbooking #12x12 #layout  @shopEvaliciousThe cute stamp set from the May Color Kit & stencil…were a fantastic way to add subtle texture to my page. I layered the stamped images in soft colors around the page making sure to keep them understated, not to distract attention away from the focal areas.

As usual Evalicious’s wood veneer sentiments are adorable & fabulous on any page. For added color accent, I painted ‘Life is Sweet’ with lime green & magenta with stunning results. It really draws attention of the page. 
For this page, wanted a more graphic feel page with pops of bright colors on a neutral black & white spotted background!

I am so thrilled with how this page turned out. I am generally nervous about mixed media, not wanting to mess my page up with my clumsy attempts at adding paint & ink but this time it actually worked. I think the smaller stencils in the Color Kit teamed with daubers is what did the trick & I love how the mixed media looked under the vellum layer.
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @americancrafts @shopEvalicious @chickaniddy #scrapbookingkit #summercraft #layout #papercraft Making the most of the May Color Kit & stencils…I started by adding painted texture to my page, layering the stencils using the yellow & green paint daubers, I added both solid colors & doodled outlines.

I then created interesting, layered clusters around the page. Trimming down the red Evalicious journal card made a fabulous sentiment tag. As did her cute puffy stickers layered onto a circle label with a tiny stamped sentiment. The stamp set which has loads of very small sentiments & accents words comes in the May Color Kit too. I am finding them perfect for a reluctant stamper like myself. They add super texture & interest to the page
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @americancrafts @shopEvalicious @chickaniddy #scrapbookingkit #summercraft #layout #papercraft The rest of the journal card became a label, layered with green one, a wood veneer accent & stamped images,  I created a pretty cluster in the bottom right corner too.
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @americancrafts @shopEvalicious @chickaniddy #scrapbookingkit #summercraft #layout #papercraft Using my trusty typewriter, I journaled onto a piece of  trimmed Chickaniddy paper, stamped with a few images to make it more interesting.
Yet more evidence of an amazingly well planned & thought out kit from Hip Kits. The perfect mixture of patterned papers, accents & embellishments, make designing scrapbook pages a breeze. Make sure to secure your June kits, & July kits. they are almost sold out.
Glad you stopped by!!
