Elle's Studio and Hip Kit Club Blog Hop


Welcome to the Elle's Studio/Hip Kit Club Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Emily Wilbur's blog. When I got the kit from the Hip Kit Club I was so excited to see so many fun elements in there. 

 Isn't it an adorable kit!?!?

Recently I wrote a post about using ALL your letter stickers. I wanted to use this technique with this kit too. I used the Dear Lizzy letter stickers to create a large element on the left side of the page. This project is titled "Mama Becki" it tells the story of my niece and how she calls me "Mama Becki"
I added some adorable stickers and die cuts to create the title:
Here's the completed layout:
I also created a simple card. I used my crimper to add a little bit of texture. The wood veneer is from the Elle's Studio Shine collection. (One of my very favorite collections! You can see 3 more projects I created with this line HERE.)
Here's the entire list of stops on the blog hop today, just in case you get lost along the way.

  4. The scrapbooking trend I love lately, is seeing people use entire sets of alphas on one page! You did it here, and I'm seeing it more and more lately. I love what it adds to a page!

  15. Your use of alphas is inspiring! I'm still working on my use or should I say non use of white space. It's something I want to do more of but sometimes have a hard time leaving good enough alone!

    1. I have such a hard time with that. I love white space but it's one of the hardest things for me to do. That's something I'd love to work on as well. Thanks!

  16. Super cute layout! The letters on the side look awesome! Great idea!

    I actually tried to create my own Bokeh look with a stamp, Distress ink and Glimmer Mist yesterday and I think I will need to do it again! It'll be appearing on my blog on Monday if you care to take a peak.

    Thanks for all you share!

  18. This is awesome!! I had one a-ha moment recently, and it was with one of my new Prima stamps. She's a big stamp, and did not have a bloc large enough for her. Someone mentioned on a forum to use a Cuttlebug plate. A-Ha!!!!! Perfect!
    Thanks for the chance!

    1. I saw that tip the other day too. I don't have any larger stamps but I will no longer overlook buying them because I don't have a big enough block. Thank you for sharing your a-ha moment!

  19. I love how you choose to use the letters and numbers! I have only recently found the fun of misting and painting on my layouts... I'm really loving embossing paste right now too!

    1. Embossing paste sounds like a lot of fun! I'll have to check it out! Thank you!

  20. Such a fun layout! Love how you used the letters & numbers, framed the photo, & the washi tape with the butterfly as a border! So cute!

  21. Fabulous! I love all the colors, patterns and your use of the letters!

  22. This is such an adorable page Becki! Love the cute photo! Thanks for sharing

  23. Love the way you used those alphas!! Such bright and fun colors on this page too! Probably my most recent ah ha moment has been that I have learned to scrap in layers. Sometimes I use paint or mist and it's a pain in the read when you mess it up! So. I've learned that it's ok to leave a project alone and let it dry before continuing. Maybe that's not rocket science. But still. ;)

    1. LOL, I love that you mentioned this. I have a problem leaving my projects alone to dry as well. I've found that moving the project that needs to dry somewhere else while I start a new project helps me to leave it alone until it's dry. Thank you!

  24. AHA moment... okay to cut down my photos after printing instead of over-editing before printing ; )

    1. Michelle, I think that's a great moment. Simplifying the editing/printing process leaves more time to create! Thank you for your comments!

  25. what a fun way to use the alphas! no ahas for me lately just trying to make time to scrap!

    1. Tessa, I think that a lot of times a great a-ha moment is simply finding a little bit of time when you can routinely create, i.e. right after lunch, after putting the kids to bed, or simply trying to squeeze 15 minutes of creative time into your day! Thank you for your sweet comment!
