Playing with some Hip Kit products

Hi there and welcome to my blog today!!

I was lucky enough to win a give away over on Instagram by @flisw way back in November or December last year. I won (I think!) most of the November kit and oh my, it is beautiful! Full of some of their exclusive papers and also the gorgeous Pink Fresh Studios range . 

I knew I wanted to use this kit for Christmas/December photos from last year and actually printed out some photographs I wanted to use to take on retreat in February but got totally side tracked and didn't get around to them! I did however make sure to take the kit and the photos on my last retreat in early June and though these were not completed at retreat the basis of both of them came together for me at retreat.

Enough jibber jabber though, here are my 2 pages!

This first one is the one I came up with the idea at retreat :) 

I always have my photo taken with Santa (I think I missed a year or possibly 2 between the boys) and last year was no exception! I found Santa with 2 elves wandering around Adventure World when we went there as a family last year for my hubby's work family Christmas party and asked if they minded if I took a selfie ;) 

I have used one of the gorgeous exclusive papers for this page and also those exclusive teal coloured puffy alphas by Pink Fresh. I knew I wanted to hand stitch the rest of the title and came up with this:

I have actually used a Heidi Swapp cut file I had cut with my silhouette months ago as my stencil. I taped it down with washi and then pierced holes all around the edge. Then spent an hour or 2 in front of the TV with a needle and thread! Love how it came out in the end!

The Pink Fresh ephemera pack and puffy stickers are just adorable and all those silver glitter pieces are so, so pretty!

Onto the 2nd page

Another of the HKC exclusive papers (so, so gorgeous!!). I didn't realise until I went to photograph them that I had picked both of the papers with the diagonal stripe but oh, well, these 2 I think were my most fave. I was a little sad to not use the back side of this paper but seriously, how could I resist that star paper? I have also added a little sprinkle of Heidi Swapp gold colour shine :)

A little gold thread for some interest and texture with those adorable die cuts, enamel dots and puffy stickers.
Oh, and that "joy" die cut has been popped up on foam :)

And these thickers, swoon!! Every person that walked past my desk when I had these out stopped and commented. They are so pretty and shiny and the font is just perfect! Oh, and that mouse!! Total cuteness!

A couple of pretty simple layouts but I love how they both turned out and can't wait to get stuck into the rest of this kit! Thank you again Felicity!!

That's it for me for today! I have started working on another process video, I was totally overwhelmed by the positive feedback on my 1st so am pumped to do another!!

Happy scrapping!



  1. Very fun pages!!! Love the "selfie" on the first one. Very cool and the title on the second one. You totally rocked them.

  2. Really really lovely! Adore diagonals & the colours in the second one are soooo yummy! Adore the gold touches too..... Outdone yourself with these ones:):)
