Rainbows, Rollerskates, Mood Boards and Cutting Fun! | Amanda Baldwin

Hi Hip Kit Friends!

Welcome back for more paper-tastic inspiration! Amanda here, and I am SO super excited to be sharing my latest scrapbook layout (& process video) with our gorgeous January Hip Kits! Today I am being inspired by the February Mood Board, and in particular, the rainbows, florals, hearts & those rollerskates! You’ll also spy the fabulous February HKC Subscriber Exclusive rollerskate cut file – but rather than rave, here’s a quick look at my happy-go-lucky vibes page!

“Let’s Roll”




Oh how fun, and whimsical! Such a bright and playful page for my two darlings! I just couldn’t resist fussy cutting that rainbow paper from Pinkfresh Studio: My Favorite Story collection (courtesy of the HKC January 2020 Main Kit) and combining it with our amazing rollerskate HKC Exclusive Subscriber Cut File! I mean, rainbows and rollerskates go hand in hand, right?!

If you missed seeing the February mood board, it looks like this….




Wow! All kinds of pretty, huh?! You can interpret this board so many ways, and best part, it coordinates with both our January and February Hip Kits – Yay!!! I hope you’ll see something that sparks some creativity and inspires you! But back to today’s project, here’s a better look at my layout…..




Sunny + Bright, indeed! So.much.fun!!!

I started my scrapbook page with the beautiful  Bazzill Starmist Cardstockfrom the January Cardstock Kit – such a pretty color for my background and base. Next I backed the fabulous rollerskate HKC Subscriber Cut File with two of the Pinkfresh Studio: My Favorite Story papers from the January 2020 Main Kit, as well as that stunning, sparkly Bazzill Prince Charming Bling Cardstockfor added wow factor! I can’t even begin to tell you how ahh-MAY-zing that cardstock is!!!

I fussy cut that divine rainbow, Joyful Heart paper, also from theMain Kit, and layered it onto that fabulous Starmist base. For added interest, I foam mounted every second stripe in the rainbow and then adorned every stripe with tone on tone embellishments from both the January Main & Embellishment Kits. Such a pretty effect!



I framed my main photograph with one of the Pinkfresh Studio Chipboard Frames from the Embellishment Kit, and then positioned it onto that cute skate! To complete the rollerskate, I added lots of the Floral Die Cuts and a Fabric Bow (also from our Embellishment Kit) as well as a couple of the Puffy Phrase Stickers. I layered it all onto the end of the fussy cut rainbow and tucked in my second photo into this cluster. Love it!



I used the White Puffy Alphas (with gold accents, no less!) from the Embellishment Kit to form my title, and then added a subtitle – Sunny + Bright – with thePuffy Phrase Stickers courtesy of the Main Kit. I cut out and adhered a few fluffy white clouds from the Bazzill White Cardstock, and then finished off with a good sprinkling of the Pink Paislee Lucky Us Puffy Shape Stickers. 



Such a magical design!
