Ready for December 2016

Hi Girls! I want to share lots of photos with you today. I am slovly getting ready for Christmas, therefore I created few pillow boxes with the November 2016 Hip Kits. I love the fresh colors, but even more that with the gorgeous elements you can give the magical christmas spirit to my projects.

I cut pillow boxes with Silhouette Cameo and then I embellished them with Hip Kit Club – ‘Tis the Season – Ephemera and Crate Paper – Snow & Cocoa – Ephemera pieces. You can even add monogram from one of the gorgeous alpha stickers from November 2016 Kits.

November 2016 Embellishment Kit includes the fun HKC Exclusive – ‘Tis the Season – Word Stickers what is perfect to add winter wishes to your wrapping. For this box I used HKC exclusive tag FREE cut file what you can download from our website.

After last year also this December I setted up a corner in my craft room for December Album and for other Christmas projects. It was a huge fun to create and set up everything. It really cheered me up and made me listen Christmas songs.🙂 Check out all the photos:


That was it for today! I hope I could inspire to use your November 2016 Hip Kits.
Thanks for stopping by!

Family Portrait with Hip Kits

Hi Girls! Here is my last layout made with October 2016 Hip Kits. This time my theme was DIY background. I interpreted it differently as I didn’t feel like to do any mixed media etc, so I decided to create a room interior what gives the background, but also part of the layout.

First of all I chose the background paper from the October 2016 Main Kit, then I placed the We R Memory Keepres Honey I’m Home frame die cuts from the October 2016 Embellishment Kit. After this I adhered the light bulbs and hang them with cables what I draw with a pencil. I am very satisfied finally I was able to use them as they are super cute, but let’s be honest, it’s very hard to use them on a scrapbook layout.

I embellished the frames with more WRMK – Honey I’m Home – Ephemera and Simple Stories – Posh – Stickers and WRMK – Honey I’m Home – Stickers from October 2016 Project Life Kit.

I created the title with mix of Pink Paislee – Take Me Away – Phrase Thickers and Exclusive Hip Kit Club Coral Puffy Alphabet Stickers. It looked too plain so I added WRM – Honey I’m Home – Puffy Stickers to cheer up.

Unique christmas card with stamping

Hi, ladies! Today I am up on the Altenew blog, particiapting  on the Holiday Photo Card Blog Hop. If you want to join the Blog Hop please visit the original post.

I’m sharing an elegant Christmas card that incorporates a personal photo. To create this card I used the Altenew Festive Silhouettes Stamp Set and the Poinsettia & Pine Stamp Set.

First of all, I cut out this beautiful, elegant envelope out of craft cardstock using a cut file. Then I created the poinsettia and branch die cuts with Altenew Poinsettia & Pine Stamp & Die, using gold heat embossing technique. I stamped the image on colorful cardstock as I am not so good at watercoloring.

Next step was to make the insert with the sentiment and personal photo. The holiday wishes were made with Altenew Festive Silhouettes Stamp Set. I chose again the gold heat embossing technique as this is the best way to make something festive and elegant. In the end, I added tiny colorful stars which are coordinate with the Christmas tree decoration in the background of the photo.

I also created a process video, so you can see better how I made this easy but unique Christmas card. You can watch my video here or in HD at Youtube. 

I hope you like my project! Don't forget to join the Holiday Photo Card Blog Hop on the Altenew blog.
