Splendid Friends - HIP KIT CLUB

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Hey friends,

today I'm sharing a very fun and colorful fall wreath I created with an exclusive October HKC cutfile😃
I chose the leaves cutfile because I love making wreaths. I cut the leaves out of different colors of cardstock from the Cardstock Kit. Then I slightly changed the cutfile, so that I would only have the contoures of the leaves. This way I could back my leaves very fast without having to hand-cut everything. I used different patterned papers to back the leaves. What I love about the colors is that they are very bold and saturated and I also love having some brown, which, let's be honest, we almost never use on our layouts... 😄
I added the title, some enamel dots and some exclusive embellishments and I was done! 

Let me know if you like it, see you soon! 

Better together for THE CUT SHOPPE

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Hey scrappy friends,

today I'm sharing a new layout I made using a beautiful new cutfile. It's called FALL FLOWERS and is available on the CutShoppe website.

I cut it out of orange cardstock and to back it, I used yellow cardstock. I let my Silhouette machine cut out the yellow backing piece, which I had created by selecting only the contours of the flowers. That way, it was faster and I didn't need to hand-cut it.

As you can see on the photo, when I adhered the pieces to my white cardstock, I placed the orange piece slightly higher than the yellow piece, which makes the contours of the yellow piece peek our and I think this gives a very cool look. For the centers of the flowers, I used a scalloped circle punch and punched them out of different bright pink patterned papers.

Then I placed an embellishemnent in each of the centers. I used gems, buttons and brads. I really like the look that it gives and I adore the pink, yellow and orange colors together. Of course, I also needed to frame my layout... I used a cardstock sheet with the same color as the bright pink flower centers.

I matted my photo on some scraps of paper and added it to the layout. I wanted to bring some mint color in and also to do a bit of mixed media but I loved the layout so much so far and I was scared to ruin it... :) So I used some clear stickers from my stash which had splatters and splotches in different colors. I used some of those behind my photo and also on the sides of the layout. 

Then I added my title. I used gold chipboard stickers saying: "Better Together". I also added this cute little pink cat from the latest Dear Lizzy collection.

To add more mint color, I cut out some simple leaves and adhered them next to some flowers. Then I added some clear bee stickers and black splatters and I was done.

Thank you so much for stopping by, see you soon! :)


Fall cards - HIP KIT CLUB

Monday, November 11, 2019

Hi friends, 

today I'm sharing three cards I made using the October kits. 😃
The assignment was to get out our punches and also add some stitching details. I had only received a new flower punch and was excited to try it out. I created flowers for the three cards, switching between colored and white ones.
I adhered the white ones to a pretty colored patterned paper and for the colored flowers, I used papers with less colors and patterns, to make them stand out more. I used a lot of the exclsuive HKC vellum and acetate flowers which I LOVE!! I want to add them to everything... haha! I added some hand-stitching details to some of the vellum leaves, which looks pretty cool!
I really hope you like them and and inspired to create flowers too! 😘🥰☺️
Thanks, Lisa
P.S. Have you seen the cute fox head which fits perfectly on the fall sweater die-cut?? So cute 😁
