Hip Greetings

Hi friends! Happy Saturday!
Just popping in on this beautiful Saturday to share the cards I made with the June Hip Kit...

This may be my favorite color combo of the moment. Turquoise and Orange. Or if you're Martha Stewart...Sunken Pool and Valencia. And I love these little My Mind's Eye trinket charms that were included in the June Add-On kit...isn't that little bird sweet?

It's fun to mix and match the different blossom embellishments in this kit....a Jillibean Soup canvas blossom, a pretty gingham blossom from Maya Road and an adorable layered chipboard blossom from Pebbles. Together they make a perfect little bouquet for this thank you card.

One of the Add-On Kits for June is the Maya Road Blue Ribbon Sentiments clear stamp set. The 'thank you' on this card is one of the stamps from the set, which I stamped on a Jillibean Soup die cut.

These corrugated butterflies are fab and add such great texture to projects...especially with a button 'stitched' on and some paint splatters. The 'You are THE BEST' sentiment is one of the Maya Road stamps.

The banner on this next card was made using another stamp from the Maya Road set. Here's a peek at the full set of stamps.

Cute, eh? So I stamped the pennant stamps on a variety of the patterned paper from the kit, cut them out and stitched them down.

Added a sentiment, some of the fab Lily Bee Design's ABC Stickers and a few buttons...

Some bittersweet news to share too...Kimberly at Hip 2B Square announced this week that she will be closing her store. It is sad because we're losing a cute, cute local scrapbook store, but it is exciting too, as she'll be able to focus her time and energy on her fantastic Hip Kit club, an expanded online store,  a new and improved website with tutorials, challenges, a message board and so much more! So much exciting stuff to come! So if you are local, head out to Snoqualmie for some great deals (the entire store is 50% off) and to wish Kimberly well in this exciting transition!
