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.

  1. Fab layout, Kate! I love the distress paint and that you used the branding strips. The combination of typewriter and handwriting looks awesome too. 🙂
