Hi friend.  Did you know that Hip Kit Club host free to enter challenges each month?  This week, we launch the Moodboard challenge which is open throughout August.  It’s your chance to get creative and win $25 to spend in store!

The dreamy colours and elements are perfect with the July 2023 kits.

I love the papers in the July Main Kit, and was inspired by the big sunburst paper.  Pairing it with the pretty blue waves paper makes a perfect combo for a summer pool or beach theme.

I added yellow stitching to the sunbeam paper to add a little more texture, using the existing sunbeams as a guide.


I tore the blue paper into strips to create ‘waves’, curling the edges for more dimension. If you leave the edges open, then you can tuck in ephemera or chipboard pieces.  So cute!

I like to add a cluster to an area around my photos.  I love the different textures in the kits – perfect for layering.

The puffy stickers from the July main kit are amazing!  The titles are large in a modern, bright font – perfect to offset against the cool colour of the background.

I added a further cluster to the bottom of the layout to keep things interesting.  I mounted the ‘To Beach’ sign on a coffee stirrer and then layered the gorgeous acrylic, puffy and chipboard pieces to finish.

You can watch the full process over on our YouTube channel:

Thanks so much for watching.  Don’t forget to check out our Sketch Challenge in the Hip Kit Club Facebook group for another chance to win $25 to spend.  Just complete the challenges and upload your layout to the group by August 31st for a chance to win.

Good Luck!
