Hi Hip Kit Friends! Amanda here, & I can’t wait to share what I have created for today’s color challenge! I had so.much.fun! The April 2020 Hip Kits are nothing short of ahhh-MAY-zing, but rather than rave, here’s a look at my take on the Color Challenge: yellow, pink, dark pink & aqua….
“Sweet Happy Summer Days”
Oh.my.heart!!! As soon as I saw the Carta Bella: Summer Market collectionpick-up truck filled with flowers, I knew I would have to create one of my very own! I mean seriously, does it get any cuter?!! And how sweet with my two darling’s photo positioned in amongst all those gorgeous florals! Love it!
The Crate Paper: Maggie Holmes: Sweet Story: Sweetest pattern paper was too pretty to refuse and I just had to have it for my layout background! Soft and pretty pink papers are one of my faves! The Carta Bella: Summer Market: Summer Day Floral paper from the April 2020 Main Scrapbook Kit was just begging for fussy cutting, plus the colors in the florals matched the color challenge. Needless to say, I snipped them out to ‘fill’ the back of my truck!
To create my pick up truck, I sketched up a quick stencil template in plain paper, and checked I had my proportions correct. Once happy, I overlaid the template onto the Bazzill Sparkle Bling Cardstock (April 2020 Cardstock Kit)and cut away! For the rear window and tires, I used some black cardstock from my stash – but you could easily paint or color the Bazzill White Cardstock to get the same result. I used a white gel pen to add a few highlights to these features too!
The Crate Paper: Maggie Holmes: Sweet Story, ‘HAPPY’ Ephemera (from the April 2020 Main Kit) was the perfect adornment for the truck’s number plate. I faux bolted it onto the trailer with the Carta Bella Summer Market Enamel Dots. Sweet! Such a simple idea, but so effective!
I also used the Sweet Story Ephemera to back my photo onto, and create a frame. I embellished my lovely photo with an ephemera bow and Summer Market Adhesive Brad, as well as more fussy cut florals and the ‘favorite’ Summer Market Chipboard Sticker.
To add more playfulness and whimsy to the page, I adhered that cute Chipboard bee Sticker, and some of the Sweet Story Layered Butterflies to the page as well.
For finishing touches, I added the Sweet Chipboard & Sunny Days stickers to my title and embellished with a few more Carta Bella Adhesive Brads! You can see my page come together in my process video below. I really hope you enjoy watching it!

Til next time,
Happy Arty Days, Amanda xo
