Hip Kit Club | M. E. R.

It's time for a new layout and card for Hip Kit Club, using the April 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits!  I based my layout on the new Mood Board challenge for April.  If you haven't played along yet, make sure you check out all of the info on the Hip Kit Blog for the chance to win an awesome Grab Bag!

When I sat down to create my layout, I used bits of inspiration from the board, instead of focusing on one element or photo. I loved the variety of colors, in the photos, from the Mood Board, so I used a mix of different color papers and embellishments from the April 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits. There were two other fun elements that caught my eye...the stitched initials and the overlapping confetti. I cut each of the kids initials on my Cameo and then traced it onto my background paper. I used Black and light Green embroidery floss to stitch around the circles and initials. And I couldn't resist using some of the sequins from this month's kit, to recreate the fun confetti look!

And next up, I have a fun new card! I really loved the Studio Calico icon patterned paper from the Wanderlust collection, included in the April 2014 Hip Kit Main Kit and Paper Add-On Kit. I knew it would make a perfect background for a "chat" card. I spotted the cute rotary phone cut file in the Silhouette Store and cut it from the American Crafts Buddy patterned paper. The Maggie Holmes frames are great for layering, and I used a cork frame to match the American Crafts Scene Thickers, from the April 2014 Embellishment Kit.

The May 2014 Hip Kits are beginning to be revealed, and you can check out the May 2014 Main Kit and Paper Add-On Kit, HERE!
