So happy together 12x12 / Hip Kit Club CT

Hello everyone, today I'm sharing a layout that I created with July 2016 Hip Kits. This week my assignment was focus on photos. Like a lot of other people , I usually only scrap one picture on a layout, but this week I scrapped 4 pictures. They may be smaller pictures but there are still 4 of them,lol. 


I also kept the focus on the middle of the page, centered everything there and I really am happy with the way it turned out. I started out with a piece of American Crafts white card stock from the cardstock kit, grabbed my gold Heidi Shine and splattered it up the middle of the page. I grabbed my Main kit and pulled out Paige Evans, Pink Paislee polk a dot paper along with a hip kit exclusive paper created by DT member Kim Watson, The Happy Life-Omber Sky. I layered the two behind my photo and started to layer the embellishments and cut files.


I had cut out some of the pretty heart cutfiles that DT member Ashley Horton had created for July. I layered those to the right and right bottom of my photos. I grabbed my embellishment kit and pulled out a bunch of the Hip kit exclusives created by Kim Watson. The little tags, circles, tabs, sayings all came from the ephemera pack, then I layered some of the puffy stickers and the project life gold rub ons. 


I finished by adding that great flair badge with the camera on it and splattering a little bit of blue water color paint over everything in the center.

I really hope you like this layout and I hope you come back to see more of what I make. If you don't want to miss anything feel free to follow or subscribe to my blog and then you wont miss anything!

Both of us 12x12 layout / Pretty Little Studios

Good morning everyone. 
I'm sharing a layout created with Pretty Little Studios You&Me collection. Its suppose to be a valentines line but can be used for so much more.


This is a layout that is special to me and was also created as a gift for my sister. This layout is my Grandma, a very beautiful woman that we lost earlier this year to cancer. She was an amazing woman and I was so happy to get to spend time with her and let her get to know my kids and just have her in my life. 
This layout is actually of her and my sisters daughter and I thought it would be a nice memory for her to keep, I'm the scrappy one, so I thought I'd make it and put it in a frame for her so she can put it on her wall and see whenever she wants and so can her daughter.


I love this collection and how you can do so much with it. I added some triangles to the top left of my layout and the bottom right then sewed them down. After I had those down I started layering papers behind my photo. I added a doily and went in to the pretty cut-aparts and stickers to start my embellishing. I love the die-cut clouds, there so pretty. I grabbed my baby Chris wood alpha stickers and made my title but I wasn't quite happy with the look of it so I grabbed my American Crafts metallic gold pen and colored over then, I was happy with it then. I finished my layout off with some Heidi-shine and some water color splashes and a bit more sewing. 
I hope you enjoyed this layout and thank you for stopping by my blog! If you don't want to miss anything make sure to add me to your circle or follow me. Thanks!!

Outdoor fun with Daddy / PLS pinsperation

 Hey everyone! Tonight Im sharing a layout I created for Pretty Little Studios design team. Tonight I'm playing with the Pinterest inspiration mood board.


I used mostly the woodsy elements of the mood board. I even took inspiration from the tree branches for my background. I grabbed some distress in and a stencil and made some light leafs on the background. I also used some Heidi Swapp color shine in gold from some little splatters. After that I dove into the Woodland Collection and started layering!!


I used a cut file from the Cut Shoppe to start out my base for the layering on this layout. I grabbed my photo and matted it on some American Crafts white card stock and then started the layering of the Woodland papers. 


When I was done with the layering behind my picture I thought it was to much on one side and I knew I didnt want my title over there too so I started on my title area and then adhered that to the opposite side. Then it was time to play with the embellishments!!


I layered some tags with the word stickers and the die cuts, I LOVE that butterfly!! Oh so pretty!! I layered in some tabs, vellum tape and I even made an epoxy flair.
I had fun with this layout and hope you enjoyed it too!!

Pretty Little Studio Products used:
Woodlan Collection: Caterpillar Green 8x8 paper, papers from 6x6 Woodland paper collection, die-cut butterfly, Wild Rose 3x4 cards, Rose bush tabs, Clover Leaf label cut-aparts, ABC-Tree bark, Petals vellum tape, Wonderlust words

Made me smile / Hip Kit club CT


Hello everyone!! I'm here this morning sharing a layout with you that I created with Hip Kit Clubs July kits, and man oh man are these kits amazing!! I'm so loving the combo of products and colors!! And next months is just as Amazing and has so many of the new products that just got released!! My previous post has all the info about the August kits and links to everything too!!



So, I love this picture. I didn't think I would share cause it has my bare belly but it's just so sweet how our youngest, (for now), loves to talk to my baby belly on a daily basis. She will talk to her little sister, sing to her and tell her stories and it is so sweet I had to document it.

This weeks focus was cut-files and I had a hard time choosing what ones I wanted to use but when I picked my picture it was easy for me. Both of the cut-file sets I chose were created my design team member Ashley Horton. I started out by pulling a piece of American crafts white card-stock from the card-stock kit and cut out the cut-files I wanted. Then I grabbed a few papers from the Main kit and went to deciding what I wanted behind the cut-file. I finally decided I was going to go with the Simple Stories, Sunshine&Happiness- Shine Bright. 


After that I grabbed two of the Hip Kit Club exclusive papers created by design team member Kim Watson from her collection The Happy Life-Sunset Blush and Ombre Sky and then that beautiful Illustrated faith, Whatever is lovely-Admirable paper and started my layering and my bottom left corner.
After I got the paper layers I wanted I did a bit of sewing and dug into my embellishment kit. I grabbed those cute little American crafts bow paper clips, the Amy Tangerine, Better together rubber charms, love these! And the Hip kit club exclusive ephemera pack and started playing. I went back to the main kit and grabbed the exclusive ephemera pack from there too and finished off the layout.



I love how this layout turned out and how fantastically all the products from the kits worked together!

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my layout, I hope it inspires you to go play with the cut-files and see what you can do with them. Id love to see what you make, so if you'd like to tag me on Instagram I'm mother0froyalty and would love to see!! Thanks so much!!

12x12 So happy together / Hip Kit club CT

 Good morning everyone! Its Friday so I'm really hoping its a good day! Weekend starting, sleeping in (hopefully!) and nice weather!
To kick off the weekend I thought I'd share a layout I created for Hip Kits this week using the July 2016 kits and  mood board as inspiration.


Design team member Ashley Horton created this pretty mood board and I took my inspiration from the water color block in the top right and the pretty confetti in the top left.


I started out by pulling a sheet of American Crafts White card stock from the card stock kit and cutting it down to an 8.5x11 and that was the starting base for my layout. I matted that on a piece of white vellum, also in the card stock kit.
After that I grabbed a few of the Hip kit exclusive patterned paper, created by design team member Kim Watson. These were from the Main kit but you can also buy the paper add on kit to get more, since they are exclusive. I also used the Illustrated Faith paper from the main kit as well.


I took my punches from my stash and started punching circles out of these papers to represent my confetti. But I didnt throw them down haphazardly, I kept them lined up, but in no particular order. When I had them where I liked them I put a little adhesive down to hold them in place till I sewed them down. I added bits from the exclusive ephemera pack from then embellishment kit and sewed the circles and words down. 


I added these cute little houses since the layout was about one of my daughters and her daddy, cuddling up on the floor at grandmas to watch a movie, lol. But once I did that I added a frame to my picture, also from the ephemera pack and grabbed the Bella Blvd ciao chips for the title. I added a few gold rub ons from the project life phrase and icons set and sewed the 8.5x11 layout to the pretty water color looking paper as a background. And that was it, layout was done. 

I hope you enjoyed this layout and hope you come back to see more of what I do. And make sure to check out the Hip kit website for all the beautiful kits, the blog for more inspiration, Instagram and the facebook member forum.

Oh and make sure to come back to see all the lovely sneak peeks of next months kits!!!

Hello Lovely mini album / Pretty Little Studio DT


Good morning everyone!! 
I'm here this morning to share a mini album I made for a friend of mine. So this one wont have any pictures in it yet. But I enjoyed making it. I thought the Woodland collection would be perfect for this, So I grabbed it and started.


I actually created this whole mini from things in my stash and the Woodland collection from Pretty Little Studio.
I took 2 pieces of chipboard, cut them down  and scored a 1 inch binding on both pieces and adhered them together and place a Tim Holtz large ring binder on the spine inside and placed them with eyelets and covered the entire album in papers from the Woodland collection. I just love that wild rose paper!! I think I could use that over and over and even better, it comes where the background is in different colors!! Love!
The page bases are little Paper Studio favor bags from Hobby lobby, some foiled in gold others just kraft with polka dots! I love polka dots too! lol


The inside cover has a 2 layered pocket, I thought this way it can hold more tags, journaling or ephemera that my friend wants to keep for her little one. Each page is also a baggy/envelope for storing more things, this way everything is in one place.


I added labels threw out the mini so that dates and things could be kept track of, little snippets of journaling and all.


Most of the labels and tags are adhered down to where pictures can be slid under them if wanted.  


And I like the gold foiled envelops with this collection and the Cambridge doilies, to me they make it look a bit more dainty. lol


I made sure to add a extra little pocket in the back with tags so there would be even more places to journal or add pictures. I always feel like there can never be enough places to put pics or keep your memories.


Thanks for stopping by and checking my mini album out!!
