Dream and Remember to be Happy | Jessica Fabiano

I believe that dreams are important in life. I am a child at heart. I love to dream and fantasize about the what-ifs, it’s a nice place to visit. However, it’s important to stick to what makes us happy as we are awake. Professor Dumbledore has a similar opinion, he says “it doesn’t do to dwell in dreams and forget to live.” I guess he’s right. But a little dream here and then doesn’t hurt. Perhaps you can even catch one of them? Enough pseudo-philosophy, let’s get back to the layout!



This layout is my first layout using the gorgeous January 2017 Hip Kits. They’re full of soft and dreamy colors. I love the enchanted atmosphere that comes with the Moonstruck bits and pieces by Pink Paislee – one of my all-time favorite collection that has been released during the last year. Perhaps it was due to that that I couldn’t help but quote Harry Potter?



I am fairly new to designing cut-files, that’s why I am very proud to say that I managed to create a dream catcher. Click here to grab your free set of the Dream Catcher cut file (note: you will have to log into your Hip Kit Club account; if you don’t have one register for free and receive free cut files every month!).

As you can see I colored in the dream catcher. I used alcohol markers for that, then stitched around the edge of the dream catcher and the heart behind it.


fullsizerender69I love feathers. I really do. Perhaps you can tell that the ephemera ones are lighter – that’s because I painted over them with a white Gelato in order to get an even better dreamy effect.




I wanted to bring more attention to my title – I know that I always choose the easy way when it comes to titles; I mainly use pre-written Thickers. However, I also cherish a nice mix and a message, even though I don’t always stick to wanting to do that. Look at the gorgeous wood veneers – they’re HKC exclusive! So is the “HAPPY” ephemera. And those golden Thickers…they have a realistic chance of becoming my January Hip Kit Club favorite product of the month.

Here’s a list of the products I used for my January 2017 layout:

  • Dream Catcher January 2017 cut file
  • Golden Thickers from the Main Kit
  • Wood veneers from the Main Kit
  • Project Life foiled frames from the Main Kit
  • Epehemera designed by Kimberly from the Main Kit
  • 1Canoe2/Hazlewood Golden Clip from the Embellishment Kit
  • Fabric Thickers from the Embellishment Kit
  • Pink Paislee/Moonstruck cork stickers from the Embellishment Kit
  • “Glorious Day” golden Shimmerz mist from the October 2016 Color Kit


I hope you’ve had some fun joining me today. Magical wishes!

  1. Oh I love this!
    I would love to register en use the cut files, but the link doesn’t end anywhere. it brings me to an empty page.

    1. did you log in before you clicked the link? I mentioned in the post that you can only view the cut file section when you’re logged in 🙂
