Elle’s Studio & Hip Kit Club Blog Hop


Hip Hip Hop! Who doesn’t love a Blog Hop? Today the Hip Kit Club has teamed up with the fantabulous Elle’s Studio to bring you a super fun Blog Hop filled with tons of inspiration and a much needed dose of summer fun and bright colors.

For my layout I was totally inspired by the Shine collection! I am obsessed with this paper:

Elle’s Studio Shine Collection Beautiful Day


And what a better way to document last year’s beach pictures! It also happened to be the week before this year’s beach trip when I was working on this layout so I was super inspired. So here is my project and also a look at the June Hip Kit Club Main Kit!


I just love how the embellishments from the Main Kit complement all the papers. I used the Distress Paint in Squeezed Lemonade to give the background paper a bit more color. I also used the branding strip from one of the paper to cut that little banner that says Shine and the name of one of the papers for the Fun & Sun banner. I just love the fonts and they were too cute to not use. In these detail photos you can see how that Distress Paint just gives a great almost watercolor look without the mess or wharping your paper.

Sweet Stamp Shop Release

sss dt

It’s that time again … for the Sweet Stamp Shop to bring you some super fun new stamp sets!!! There are three is this release. Two 2×6 sets and one 4×6.

First up is one of my all time favorites. This set is very unique in that it is all about Condolences. Typically, at least in my experience, there will be a sympathy sentiment mixed in here or there in a larger set, but this one has 7 different sentiments perfect for expressing your sympathy to a loved one. Unfortunately, in life we all have times when it is important to send someone an expression of your sympathy and perhaps making a card with this stamp set can help relay that message with thoughtfulness and creativity.


Here are a few cards made with Condolences.



On a happier, cuter, note we have Koala Family, these little fellas are a perfect addition to all the Sweet friends in the Sweet Stamp Shop line up.

And last but not least Camp Out. This is a 4×6 set and just too stinkin’ cute.

Also if you decide you NEED these stamps in your collection use coupon code JR170 for 10% off. And if you wouldn’t mind please add in the comments of your order that Kate Kennedy set you!
