Hip Kit Club Guest Designer

***Linked up at Paper Issues.***

I am super excited to be Guest Designing with Hip Kit Club this month!  I originally discovered Hip Kit, through my scrappy friend Melanie Blackburn, who had been serving as a Design Team member.  I became a follower on FB and loved the monthly kits and the projects that were being shared by the Design Team.  Kimberly Hutchison, is the kit club owner, and she contacted me earlier in January and said she would love to have me guest design, so I jumped at the chance!!  Kimberly is amazingly sweet and has put together an awesome kit for January including a mix of Studio Calico, Crate Paper, and American Crafts.  So today, I am excited to share my first layout and card with you!


I wanted to try something fun on this layout, using the Cherish Thickers included in the Main Kit.  I took inspiration from the ABC I <3 U canvas that I have seen pinned many times on Pinterest.  This was a fun and easy technique!  I placed my photos where I wanted them on the layout and then referred to the canvas images on PInterest to line up my Thickers.  After I had all of the Thickers in place, I cut a large heart on my CAMEO, and traced it onto my background paper and stitched it with White embroidery floss.

Supplies:  Patterned Paper:  Crate Paper; Thickers, & Remarks Stickers:  American Crafts; Flair Button & Wood Veneers:  Freckled Fawn; Cork Pieces, Accent Stickers & Die Cuts:  Studio Calico; Stamp:  Crate Paper; Enamel Dots:  My Mind's Eye; Color Shine:  Heidi Swapp

I wanted to use a bold background paper for my card base, so I chose the Floral pattern from the Studio Calico Printshop collection.  I cut the paper to fit on the White cardstock base, from the cardstock included in the Kit.  Since I used a busier background paper, I went with a more neutral look for my embellishments on the card.  I used one of the Standouts from the Crate Paper Love Notes collection, to add dimension to my card, and a small bit of twine for extra texture.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  American Crafts; Patterned Paper & Accent Stickers:  Studio Calico; Standouts & Stamp:  Crate Paper; Enamel Dots:  My Mind's Eye; Other:  Twine
