Thankful + Hip Kit Club

I've been working and creating and moving my scrap space this month. Reflecting on what I'm grateful for and using up the beautiful warm October Hip Kit.


Love this photo and memory of my boy and his turn at dancing with a princess. He did it because he knew it would make me happy, and that means everything. It's one of those Disney moments that I tuck away for when he's grown.
The design came from the title. I knew I wanted to do a heart, so why not make it a real focal point. Stitching it in aqua blue and placing it so that it marries the wood and white paper borders anchors the page. The arrow through the heart was a last minute addition. The heart was looking too bold, too solid and weaving the arrow softened it up and made it a little more interesting. My something different.


A trio of cards with some Pebbles paper and embellishments. It's nice to change things up and step away from making layouts. I like working on a smaller canvas and use up the bits and pieces that are leftover from my kits every month.


This was my artsy attempt at using the Prima Watercolor Pencils. Totally inspired by the many paint swatches that are up around my new scrap space. I used a typewriter to get the words to fit just right. This design is clean and simple. The idea of the paint swatch and enamel dots in the heart are the something different here.
