It's the most wonderful time of the year, and if you are a lover of all things Christmas, then you just may declare the December Hip Kit Club kits the most wonderful kits of the year.

Not everyone is a fan of routines, but if you, like me, are a member of the Hip Kit Club Facebook group, then there is at least one routine that you look forward to each Friday: the reveal of the weekly sketch. Every sketch is a creative opportunity -- it can be handled in a … Continue reading A Shift in Perspective | Jill Sprott
There are so many ways to live our lives, and so many ways to document them. With some assistance from the Hip Kip Club September main and embellishment kits, I assembled a mini-album designed to share a few glimpses of my life and the way that I live it. One problem: I didn't actually have … Continue reading A Simple Mini-Album | Jill Sprott
As much as I fawn and sigh over practically every sheet of paper, every sticker sheet, and every die-cut accent that comes my way as a crafter, there are times when particular pieces don't mesh well with the color scheme or theme I have in mind for a project. This doesn't mean I can't use … Continue reading Modifying Page Elements | Jill Sprott
We all like our personal space -- some of us more than others -- but this doesn't necessarily apply to our photos. Clustering and layering are approaches that work well when it comes to designing a page that includes multiple photos. Adding frames to the mix contributes texture and variety -- and there are lots … Continue reading Layering Photos and Frames | Jill
This time of year is full of sense memories for me, taking me back to my childhood summers: flower-laden vines curling toward blue skies, soft green grass cooling bare feet, and red volcanic soil creeping into ears and nostrils and between toes and even in belly buttons. So maybe that last memory is not as … Continue reading Paint It, Stitch It, Document It | Jill

If you, like me, are drawn to details, to colorful bits and pieces, and are hesitant to part with even the smallest scraps, then why not try a mosaic approach on your next project?

In that spirit, I've created a layout that makes the most of what remains of the March 2018 Hip Kit Club kits before moving on to the April ones.

Just in time for spring, Hip Kit Club's March 2018 main kit is setting my scrappy heart aflutter. It's filled with butterflies -- as is my yard, so I included both on this layout: To create the background, I painted white cardstock with watercolors in caterpillar and butterfly hues, and then layered it over a sheet … Continue reading Documenting Little Miracles | Jill
Valentine's Day is now behind us, with those chalky tooth-cracking conversation hearts getting staler by the day, but the Hip Kit Club January kits contain enough hearts to last through next Valentine's Day -- and possibly beyond that!
