Sooo! Hip Kit Club gave me quite the challenging task with this. Why? Because I had to keep three things in mind while creating this: Supersizing something, using the theme "Family", and bringing in some Mixed Media! Oh yeah, that's a lot to mind. BUT I loved the challenge - it was interesting and made me learn about myself. There's also a process video here and a larger Blogpost here.

Yay, my first official October Kit Post for Hip Kit Club was with this fun layout:
As soon as I laid hands on the WRMK Honey I'm Home ephemera and saw those circles, I knew that I wanted to make balloons out of them. This layout is about how you're spending time with a person that is dear to you, and how they take you away from your worries about everyday life - it's just about fun and the joy of life! There's also a process video for this one, so go check foricecreamiscream on YouTube.
Hey friends! Just showing you my layouts I made with the november kit. I've made 5 in total, but I'm picking my favorite three layouts for you guys to see.
The November Kit is full of PinkFreshStudio Indigo Hills. Now those who know my style know that it's a color scheme that I barely use; but I enjoyed doing something else. For this particular Layout I created some fun feathers! I love feathers!
....and of course I couldn't miss out on butterflies. I created the butterfly cutfile myself; stay tuned, I might be able to offer it to everyone via Hip Kit Club, but I won't make any promises. I still have to change some parts about the butterflies, but for now, I like the way it looks!
What do you mean I can't have pink? Of course I can! I NEED PINK! Sorry, it's true. Not sure if something will change about that. xD

Sadly, this one will be my last layout I will be posting having used the September Kits from Hip Kit Club. I've had a blast. I can just encourage everyone to try out a kit club. Not because the products and exclusives are amazing, but because you're getting pushed creatively. In my last post I have mentioned that I would've NEVER laid hands on Maggie Holme's gather, but had I not had the products, would I have all of those layouts that I did? No. Because kits are pre-decided, your taste and your style can only meet so much. And that's where your creative juices will start to bubble. You'll have to think of new and original ways. Not for others, but for yourself, and move out of your comfort zone until you're satisfied with the results. I think that's keeping everything fresh and fun. You'll be surprised about yourself. You'll grow. You'll love it.
But back to the layout: I painted a wreath using watercolor. Yes, watercolor are my new addiction. Look for the picture below, the wreath doesn't even have to make a lot of sense!
I love a good grid design. Unfortunately, my grid designs are sometimes very wobbly. But I guess this one isn't my worse. I really wanted to give that orange ribbon a spotlight. I LOVED the embellishment pack from Maggie Holme's gather. It's so funny, considering I probably would've never bought anything from her collection, the layout that I made with it has been nothing but joy! Thanks to Hip Kit Club!
I love this layout! It's been the very first layout I made once I had my hands on the gorgeous Hip Kit Club September Kits. And what can I say? it was soooo much fun. I loved the "Jane" paper by Maggie Holmes, I really had to cut out those beautiful roses. Can you see what I did with the leafs?
I love working with simple elements, that's why I decided to use "just" the chipboard stickers from the September Hip Kit Club embellishment add-on. They're from Crate Paper's collection called "Cute Girl", and they're so much fun!
My favorite element is definitely the confetti pocket behind the photo, I used a stapler to keep them attached to the side so they don't go anywhere actually.
Don't you, too? I just love Ponchos. Especially this one! It's perfect! It has the perfect length and it falls and wraps around my body just nicely. I never EEEEK so much about clothes but this one is awesome. Especially for my favorite season of the year: FALL!
Of course I'm using the gorgeous September Kit by Hip Kit Club. Somebody had requested for the DT members to use the main kit only, as a lot of subscribers are getting the main kit without any of the add-ons. So I decided to give it a try.
I stitched the leafs using the October 2015 cutfils, go register on the Hip Kit Club page for FREE cut files! I used some of them as a template for my stitching. I even journaled on one of them. So fun! I like how the blue pops; and I admit that blue isn't my favorite color.
I've had so many papers left from the Hip Kit Club September Kit that I really wanted to use up most of them. So I decided to make a "larger project". I wanted to create a calendar; an early Christmas present for my niece where she would have one picture of us per month; the calendar stands upright so she can put it on display. Maggie Holme's gather collection made it possible! Click here for a full tutorial!

Hey lovely people! This is my very first official post for my HKC term. I was so excited! My task for the week was to use mixed media - in my case, I decided to go with watercolors and structure paste. Can't go wrong with that, right? Riiight.
I mainly went with the colors from Maggie Holme's "Gather" and turned them slightly brighter by combining brighter shades of mint, mustard yellow and peach on my background using watercolors. I was very insecure about the Gather collection at first, but working with it was nothing but joy and fun!
