Chipboards and Alphas: Terhi | Jana | Michelle

Hello Hip Kit Club Fans! Today we have three awesome ladies sharing their ideas of using chipboard words and mixing alphas. Terhi Koskinen, Jana McCarthy and Michelle Whorwood, here we go!

Hey there, it’s Terhi Koskinen here with my favorite kits ever – the September 2017 Kits. When the Pink Paislee ‘Turn the Page’ collection was released last summer, I fell in love immediately. So fresh, fun and beautiful. And there’s chipboard stickers, who wouldn’t love them!

I decided to feature many chippies on the title, by adding these phrases around the page. This way, the title is kind of continuing through the page and the highlight is glitter green word on top of all.

I hope you find this layout of my first grader very inspiring, and please remember to share yours in the Hip Kit Club Member Forum.

Thanks for stopping by, Terhi xx

Hi everyone, Michelle here with my layout featuring the Chipboard and Mixing Alphas featuring the September 2017 Hip Kits.

I really wanted to create my layout around a fun and eclectic title with a vertical design using the two different Alphas in the September kits.  The Gold Chipboard alpha from the September 2017 Main Kit, and the HKC Exclusive Puffy Alphabet and the Glitter Girl Phrase Stickers both from the September 2017 Embellishment Kit.  Before I started to create my title work I created my background using the two Shimmerz mists from the 2017 September Color Kit (Caribbean Sunset Spritz and Tuscan Sun Spritz) which provides the background for my title work.    Then the fun bit begins – I started with the photo I chose and the sentiment I wanted to portray in my title which also acts as my journaling on my page.  I first chose a couple of the Glitter words as they have some cool shapes to work with and then added in some little details in around it.  I then added in the gold Alpha and the exclusive Alpha as well mixing up the colours and fonts.  To further add interest and fun, I started layering some of the Alphas under and over each other which gives the title movement.  Lastly, I added in some of the Chipboard from the Turn the Page Collection by Paige Evans to complete my title work.

Hi everyone, Jana here with my Layout featuring Chipboard Words and Alphas from the October 2017 HipKits! I am so in love with the Kits… but i guess i am telling you that each and every month, ha…
So, i grabbed the big white “hello” Chipboard Word from American Crafts/Dear Lizzy (included in the Embellishment Kit), the Foam Gold Thickers and the dipped Wood Veneer Alpha from the Project Life Kit and started to build up my Layout. The Picture shows me and my Hubby on our second Tattoo Date this year!


I also used one of the Pinkfresh Studio Puffy Sticker to complete my Title. You can see a little “Tag” peeking out behind the papers & photo. It´s actually a PL Card from the Project Life Kit and i love this Card. “Our Story” and some lines for my Journaling, perfect!


I only used two papers from the Main Kit and one Journaling Card for layering behind my photo.


Some black tangled Thread here and there for more texture and interest… I stitched down the big white Word just because i love how this looks! I really had fun playing with the different Alphas and Chipboards.


Here is a little process video for you to watch
