March 2023 Hip Kits: Rainbow FUN!

Believe it or not, I have never made a page with the embellishments placed in the ever-popular ROYGBIV order. Never fear! Today is the day! I’m using the March 2023 Main Kit, along with the stamp from the March Color Kit to create a column of rainbow-colored brushstrokes.


To create the rainbow I used the inks featured in the February and March kits. The top three colors (light purple, pink, and orange) are from the February Color Kit. The lighter melon green, blue and dark purple are from the March Color Kit, and the darker green came with the March Pocket Life Kit.

After stamping the rainbow of brushstrokes down the center of the Snowdrop cardstock (solid side), I used the January Frames + Flair die set to cut frames for each of the small photos using the March Cardstock Kit (Taffy-pink, Lemon Drop – light yellow, Bubblegum, blue, and Macaroon – purple).

Next, came the fun part! Embellishing all of the framed photos with little bits and pieces from the 12×12 Sticker Sheet and Chipboard Sheet from the March Main Kit.

Using thin foam tape beneath each item gives this layout lots of fun texture and dimension!

I used the pink Taffy Cardstock and the green distressed ‘Making Memories’ paper from the Main Kit to highlight the main photo. More stickers and chipboard pieces surround the double-matted photo.

The entire page is arranged on the patterned side of the second Snowdrop cardstock sheet. I love the way the subtle pattern shows through my journaling (printed on vellum).

When was the last time you tried a rainbow-themed layout? Or are you like me and have never taken ROYGBIV for a spin before? I hope you’ll give it a try sometime soon. It was so much FUN!

Hip Kit Club February 2023 Kit: New Technique with a Border Punch

I love when a design team assignment gets me to think about my supplies in a new light. For this layout using the February 2023 Hip Kits, I was asked to focus on a technique with border punches. *blowing dust off the border punches*

I have a full drawer of border punches, but I mostly reach for my basic scallop-patterned edges. For this assignment, I wanted to challenge myself to use a punch that I have never used … AND use it in a unique way. Scroll down to see what I did and let me know if I accomplished that goal.


I chose to use a border punch by EK Success that creates a tear-drop pattern along the edge of the page. I thought it would be fun to utilize those openings by lacing string through the holes in a corset style. I LOVE the way it turned out! Unfortunately, I do not know the name of the punch, but this technique would work with any border punch that has holes.

First, I designed my layout, then cut a section out of the blue patterned paper on the left side. I punched the pattern along the edges, doing my best to line up the pattern on both sides. Next, I backed the opening with a contrasting solid from the February 2023 Cardstock Kit, then laced string through the teardrop pattern. I hid the ends of the string behind the photo.

My design features one main photo in one corner and a complimentary embellishment cluster in the opposite corner. Both include large florals, chipboard frames, puffy hearts, and butterflies. I used the puffy letter stickers (such a cute font!) from the February 2023 Pocket Life kit to add the date/details to the bright blue label in the upper right corner.

Interspersed between the fussy-cut flowers and butterflies, you can see that I tucked in the chipboard frames (Main Kit) for more visual interest. Because you are only seeing part of the frame, you can cut these in half and use them in more than one spot.

I also added some vellum pieces and puffy hearts from the Embellishment Kit.

From the springtime plaid, to the lacing, to all of the details in the clusters … I LOVE the way this page came together. It was so much FUN to make!

I hope this layout inspired you to dust off your border punches and try something new with your February 2023 Hip Kits. I’d love to see your take on this technique. Link up your page in the comments below!

February 2023 Hip Kits: Main Kit Only Layout

Happy weekend, paper peeps! I’ve been playing with the February 2023 Hip Kits and have a layout to share with you today using the Main Kit only, along with a few sheets of the gorgeous Cardstock Kit (check out that CUTE tonal heart pattern!).

The EXCLUSIVE Always & Forever collection this month features shades of blue and purple with accents of coral, pink and yellow. It’s GORGEOUS! Click on the video below to watch my process of designing this page.


Patterned paper is one of my favorite scrapbooking supplies. As I flipped through the February kit papers, my eye was immediately drawn to the white geometric pattern of the Can’t Get Enough paper. The pattern features a series of diamonds. In between the diamonds are a thin-petal flower shapes. I decided to create my own lace paper by cutting away the flower shapes, leaving openings for the paper underneath to show through.

I cut a 10″ square piece of the blue/tan dot Thrifting with You paper and covered the right side with my handmade lace paper. The left side was left plain for embellishing. I added a 1 3/4″ strip of the purple floral (back of Can’t Get Enough paper) to separate the two sections. My photos were then matted with white cardstock, then placed on a block of yellow floral All It Takes is Love paper. I LOVE how that bright pop of lemon yellow calls your attention to the photos!

On the left side of the layout, I placed a series of chipboard frames to house the title and journaling. I also added fussy-cut frames from the It’s Totally Wild paper as additional layers. The two rectangular chipboard frames are backed with the EXCLUSIVE Pale Mist Hip Kit Club Essentials cardstock (tonal heart side).

I also used the Petal and Seafoam colors of Essentials cardstock for the background.

I always enjoy mixing the embellishment packs to decorate my page. This time the February Main Kit included puffy alphabet stickers in coral, cardstock die-cuts, vellum die-cuts, chipboard shapes, and even a 2×2 stamp.

And here is the finished page! What is your favorite embellishment from the February 2023 Main Kit?

Scrapbook With Me: Using Up the Last Bits of My January 2023 SCT Sampler

This year I am bound and determined to make an effort to use up my newest scrapbook supplies instead of admiring them and then sticking on the shelf. Can you relate?

One of my goals is to create 1-2 layouts with each of my SCT Sampler Kits. Today I am sharing the second layout created with the January 2023 SCT Sampler featuring the Simple Stories Life Captured collection. Check it out!

It’s not often that I get a snapshot with my siblings now that we are all married and living our separate lives. That is why this photo is so special to me! We took it at Easter 2017 as we were leaving a restaurant and it’s a reminder to me that we need to take photos together more often. It’s been SIX YEARS! (Note to self: Take another photo with your siblings in 2023)

I gathered the largest scraps that I had leftover in the kit and combined them together to create a base for my photo. I then die cut a frame with a teal grid paper (PaperTrey Ink Skinny Stitched Frames dies). I then added a scrap of lemon yellow polka dot paper behind the wood frame from the SCT Sampler.

Instead of using the frame to highlight a photo, I used it as a dimensional layer on my layout.

The kit included a few die-cuts, but I also fussy-cut several elements from the cut-apart cards in the kit, like the tags, flowers, and clipboard.

Each kit included a sheet of stickers from the Simple Stories Life Captured Sticker Book. Mine had the numbers. The numbers are supposed to coordinate with the 12 months of the year. I decided to use them as my title, rearranging them to signify the year the photo was taken.

I fussy-cut labels from another cut-apart card to house my journaling.

What are your scrapbooking goals this year? Are you stashbusting? Are you on a spending freeze? Or perhaps you are like me and are making a focused effort to USE your latest scrapbook supplies? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear about it!

Happy scrapping!
