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.
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!

Happy Arty Days, Amanda xo
