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!

Using Circle Templates as a Background

I was browsing the party aisle of Dollar Tree the other day and stumbled across a set of circular templates used for measuring the size of balloons while you are blowing them up. I assume this is for doing balloon arches and things of that nature … but my scrapbooker heart thought they would make great templates to stick in my crop bag … I mean, for a DOLLAR who cares if they get lost, right?!

I decided to use them for my page today using the Simple Stories Flea Market collection. Click on the video below to watch the process, or scroll down further to find the still shots.


I used the template to create a series of circles behind my photos, then added everything to a base of White and Robin’s Egg Color Vibe cardstock.

Around the photos I tucked in Floral Bits and various furniture-related stickers from the Cardstock Sticker Sheet. Tiny hearts from the Foam Stickers add dimension.

I used a tag from the Tags paper to anchor my title.

I added lots of stitching using my sewing machine, then journaled around the edge of the layered circles.

The Simple Stories Flea Market collection was perfect for documenting my daughter’s dorm room, but would also be perfect for telling stories about moving and renovating a home, too!

Wishing you a wonderful week!

March 2023 Hip Kits: Scraplifting Myself

This week the Hip Kit Club design team has been scraplifting ourselves. I chose to use a layout I created in 2012 using the BasicGrey Lucille collection. Click on the following image to see the process video, or keep scrolling to read the post.

First, here is my page from 2012 that I used as inspiration for my layout

And here is the page I created using a mix of the January, February, and March Hip Kits. Instead of using two smaller photos, I combined them together into one larger 6″ x 4″ photo.


Along with scraplifting myself, my assignment was to use the current March 2023 kits mixed with older Hip Kits. Everything on this page is from the March Hip Kits, except for the coral floral paper on the left, the multi-colored herringbone paper behind the photo, and the woodgrain scallop on the right.

In the upper left corner of the page, I replicated the scattered buttons on my BasicGrey page by adding a sprinkle of bees (Simple Stories Sticker Book – March Embellishment Kit) and Pinkfresh Studio chipboard flair (March Main Kit).

I wanted this page to have a springtime, Easter vibe, I fussy-cut the florals from a paper in the March Main Kit, then added in die-cut leaves (Twig + Frond dies). I also die-cut the leafy wreath from the Leafy Wreath + Bow die set to hug the corners of my photo.

I layered together several Pinkfresh Studio Ephemera pieces (March Main Kit) under the bottom of the photo, using one of them to build my title along with the Pinkfresh Studio puffy letters (March Main Kit). Another chipboard flair piece and more fussy-cut bees are scattered among the die-cuts to tie everything together.

Finally, I used the ink droplet stamp and the ‘Oh, Boy!’ ink from the March Color Kit to accent the edges of each flower cluster.

I LOVE the way the Hip Kits all work together and had so much fun combining the different patterned papers from the January, February, and March Hip Kits for this Easter page.


Be sure to stop by the Hip Kit Club blog, Facebook Group, or YouTube channel for more inspiration from the design team!

Using Chipboard Frames as Layers in Your Scrapbooking

Hello! Today I am sharing a NEW layout on the Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine blog featuring the beautiful Simple Stories Wildflower collection and die sets by If you’d like to watch a process video of this page, you can click on the image below.


Chipboard frames have recently become one of my favorite embellishments to work with. Typically, we think of using them to frame a photo, highlight your journaling, or use them as a shaker element, but today I am going to use chipboard frames as a layer in my layout design.

I backed each of the frames with the A2 Honeycomb die by The honeycomb pattern is reminiscent of bees and flowers and works well with all of the florals in the Simple Stories Wildflower collection.

The Foam Stickers are my go-to for impactful titles full of dimension.

I love the outline style of the Sprigs dies and die cut several of the leaves to tuck around the preprinted floral elements.

I layered together a couple of Tags in the top-left corner of my page as a home for my journaling. Additional stickers, brads, and die-cuts adorn this cluster to tie it in with the elements adorning the photos.

The ‘Love Greatly’ stripe paper along the top and bottom help to frame the overall design.

Have you used chipboard frames as a layer in your scrapbooking? Give it a try, you will love the instant dimension and texture it adds to your next scrapbook page.

Thanks for coming by!
