Happy Clouds - Hip Kit Club

Hi Girls! Today I have a colorful layout to share with you. I made with June Hip Kit and June cut file designed by Nicole Nowosad. You can download this file for free from www.hipkitclub.net after logging in.


I backed the clouds with many patterned paper from June Paper Kit. After I placed the photo, I embellished the layout with Amy Tangerine On a Whim – Phrase Thickers, HKC Exclusive – Wood Buttons from June 2017 Main Kit. From June 2017 Embellishment Kit I used Crate Paper – Oasis – Stickers, Bella Blvd. – Make Your Mark – Puffy Stickers, Pink Fresh Studio – Dream On – Die Cuts.


I love the most from this month kit the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day – Stickers, so I adhered lots of them. From June 2017 Project Life Kit I also used Bella Blvd. – Make Your Mark – Stickers and HKC Exclusive Project Life Cards. I fussy cut the June title and the floral bouquet from the cards.



Thanks for stopping by!

How to make DIY Herb Plant Markers - Crate Paper

Hi Ladies! I am here with a fun home decor project. As it is summer I spend lots of time on my cozy balcony. I created a relaxing corner, as well as a small herb garden along with pretty flowers. I thought it would be fun to decorate the plant pots and encourage the plants to grow with pretty plant markers. So let's check how to make DIY herb plant markers with Crate Paper goodies!


For this project you will need thick chipboard stickers, tiny alpha stickers, frame/label thickers, wooden sticks and hot glue gun.


You can also use other bigger elements like Chasing Dreams Fringe Butterflies or Textil Hearts. In case you decide to use cardstock stickers I suggest to adhere them on a chipboard piece first, so the elements will be durable.


After I pulled together all the materials, I selected my favorite chipboard elements from Carousel, Chasing Dreams and Oasis 12x12 Chipboard sheet. I kept in my to fit the chipboard pieces to the garden theme.


To fix the chipboards to the wooden stick I used hot glue gun. Even if the glue on the back of the chipboards is strong, I didn’t want to risk that they would fall down with time.


Next, I created the herbs name plates. I found perfect frames/labels on the Chasing Dreams Thicker sheet. They have different sizes, but enough place to make the titles with alpha stickers.


Once I was done with the labels, I glue them on the wooden sticks under the chipboard elements. The plant markers were ready, so I thrust them into the soil.


I hope you like my DIY herb plant markers and will try out. These sticks would work also great for garden party decoration. You can adapt the idea for your needs.

No flower layout - Paige Evans

Today’s layout is very special as the assignment was not to use any flowers. I usually add some floral elements to my layouts, especially if I use Paige’s collections because they always include tons of beautiful flowers and floral patterned papers. My second all time favorite icon is hearts, so I die cut a fun background for my project and backed it with Oh My Heart Paper 05, Paper 09, and Paper 18. Once that was done I added hand stitching around some of the hearts.


I adhered the background with foam tape to add extra dimension. After I placed the photo I embellished the page with Take Me Away Chipboard Stickers and Oh My Heart Ephemera Die Cuts. The cute kitty was cut out from Paper 01 which I placed on the top of the heart background.


Around the colorful hearts I scattered Take Me Away chipboard golden heart stickers and different size enamel dots. Also the yellow "fantastic" title comes from the Chipboard Stickers.


To finish I wrote my journaling on hand stitched lines. I love the lovely colors of my layout and the final result.

Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi Ladies! Welcome to the Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop. In case you are keeping the blog hop order you should have arrived from my darling friend May Sukyong Park's blog. I am in love with the new products, so many stunning stamps and inks. I created my layout using Altenew Baby Balloon Stamp and Die, Altenew Floral Fantasy Stamp and Die, Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamp and Altenew Recollections Stamp Set.



These are the new stamps and maching dies I was using for my 12x12 scrapbook layout:Altenew Baby Balloon Stamp and DieAltenew Floral Fantasy Stamp and Die, Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamp.
I created three balloon with Altenew Baby Balloon Stamp using the new Pinkalicious Crisp Ink from and Altenew Cherry Blossom Oval Set and Citrus Brust Crisp Ink from Altenew Pocketful of Sunshine Oval Set. For the outlines I used Altenew Industrial Diamond Crisp Ink instead of black one, not to have so sharp lines.



Behind my photo I created few floral layers. First I stamped on a white cardstock the big bouquet from Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamp and cut it out. (I used again the Altenew Industrial Diamond Crisp Ink.) Then, I stamped bigger and smaller flowers from Altenew Floral Fantasy Stamp using the new Altenew Cherry Blossom Oval Set and Altenew Pocketful of Sunshine Oval Set . The leaves were created with ligth blue Turquoise Crisp Ink from Altenew Deep Blue Seas Oval Set. Once my pretty flowers were done, I cut them out with Altenew Floral Fantasy Die Set


The title was created from glitter foam using the Altenew Script Words Die. The lines are so thin, the cut out is stunning. Insted of journaling I stamped meaningful quotes from Altenew Recollections Stamp Set. For embellishing I only added Altenew Enamel Dots and Altenew Reflection Buttons.
