Weekly Challenge – Mood Board Inspired by Amanda Baldwin

Hi Hip Kit Friends!

Amanda here, & I am just loving our super pretty February Hip Kits to pieces!!! I can’t wait to share what I’ve created with them for today’s mood board inspired post!  So let’s get straight into it!

Here’s my scrapbook page, “Live Life In Full Bloom”



Oh.my.heart! Could it get any sweeter?!! The beautiful new Bloom Street collection was the perfect choice for documenting my two darlings ( and there’s so much of this stunning line in all of our February Hip Kits!) All the pretty florals and bright colors are an idyllic reflection of this month’s mood board too! Speaking of the mood board, it was created by none other than our super talented, Lauren Hender. Let me tell you, this girl knows how to pull colors and patterns like no other!!! Here’s a quick reminder of what her mood board looks like….




Whoa!!! Such a bright, bold & striking array of images! Absolutely gor-jus!!! You’ll notice that I was not only inspired by the florals & bold use of colors but also the vertical designs and those pom poms & tassels too!

Here’s a better look at my layout…




Sigh! Such a pretty page! I used that stunning Petalsoft Bazzill Cardstock from the February Cardstock Kit as my base, and trimmed the left & right sides with machine stitched chevron arrows. The chevrons were fussy cut from paper #24 from the Pink Paislee, Paige Evans: Bloom Street collection, which is included in the February 2020 Main Scrapbook Kit. With a myriad of colors in the mood board, and the presence of vertical designs, I arranged the fussy cut chevrons into rainbow order coming down the page. In keeping with the vertical design, (& very inspired by the dangling pom poms & tassels) I decided to create a cascade of florals & fussy cut blooms for my photos to rest upon. You’ll spy lots of fussy cut flowers from the Bloom Street collection, paper #12. 




To frame my darling photographs, I trimmed up the sweet yellow 3″ x 8″ book mark card from the February 2020 Pocket Kit. I also fussy cut the hearts from this card, & used them to adorn one of my photos. Before I mounted my photos to the new yellow square bases, I positioned a larger bloom between each photo and the yellow cards. These blooms were from the Bloom Street – Journaling Spot Die Cutspack. I also tucked in a few of the fussy cut florals too!



To connect my photographs, I foam mounted a Bloom Street – Journaling Spot Die Cuts sentiment, Live Life In Full Bloom to serve as my title. To symbolize the tassels, I added dangling, colored sewing threads & a few small pom poms from my sewing box stash!




I embellished around the cascading florals with assorted stickers from Pink Paislee Paige Evans: Bloom Street Sticker Book, and finished the look with lots of Nuvo Sweet Lilac Crystal Drops. Super pretty!


Here’s a couple more detailed shots of all.the.pretty.things!!!




Those Nuvo Crystal Drops are fabulous, aren’t they? I am hoping to see more of these beauties in future Hip Kits! 




Happy Together, indeed! Such a fun & whimsical take on this month’s mood board!
