Kickstart your Scrapping with the April Moodboard! | Jodie King

Hi Hip Kit friends!  It’s Jodie here today with a traveller’s notebook spread using the fabulous March 2019 kits.


One of the many things that I love about Hip Kit Club is the constant sources of inspiration and ideas to kickstart your scrapping.  Today I’m using just one of those inspiration pieces to base my project on, and that’s the April 2019 Moodboard created by the lovely Jana.



This is my spread, and while it has a different colour palette from the mood board (that you can see below), I’ve pulled  a bunch of inspiration from it.   I’ve used:


  • The circle shapes and green colour from the top left image – in the background
  • The horizontal stripe from the middle left image – in a layer behind my photo
  • The sunshine sentiment from the bottom left image – in the title
  • The butterflies from the bottom right image
  • Black and white highlights from the top right image


In fact the only image I haven’t used is the pink background and flowers, and since this is a spread about my hubby… well I can probably get away with that ha!



I trimmed some Tickled Pink paper from Heidi Swapp as the base of my left page, and white cardstock for my right, but I also fussy cut some extra circles to layer over the Typhoon cardstock on the right side.



I pulled that blue horizontal stripe 3×4 card from the Pocket Life kit to layer behind my photo, and added some coordinating stickers, puffy stickers and ephemera pieces around it.  My title was too long to use horizontally on one page, so I adhered it vertically.





The left side of my spread came together so quickly using a journalling card from the Pocket Life kit as my focus and to print  journalling on.  Then I pulled some coordinating pieces to place around the page.



Since this spread is about our late afternoons on our holiday to Fraser Island I really wanted to use this ‘PM’ sentiment that was on one of the project life filler cards this month.  I trimmed the card down a little, and then used a circle punch to punch it out like a tab.  Love how this turned out!



And that’s the finished spread.  What’s your favourite  type of inspiration that gets you kickstarted on a project?   Is it sketch based, colour palette based or something else?  I’d love to hear!


Thanks for stopping by today xo
