Back to all



We've got a real treat for you today! We're diving into the creative world of Erica Thompson, a member of the Hip Kit Club Creative Team. She's sharing a fantastic process video where she's mixing a current kit with some older ones. πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈπŸ“¦

Erica starts off with a gorgeous kit and mixes in some leftover pieces from a previous exclusive kit. She's all about creating a large element with florals in the center of the layout. 🌸🌼🌺 She's also using scraps from a previous layout, tearing a large lavender piece, and adding a white stripe underneath. The back of the lavender piece is yellow with little white details. It's all about the details, right? 😍

She's working on a scrapbook layout, starting with a piece of white textured card stock and adding layers of patterned paper and a photo of herself and a friend. πŸ“ΈπŸ‘­ She incorporates a yellow scrap and other pocket cards with lavender and black and white polka dot designs. The layers are adhered together and embellished with foam adhesive and additional decorations. πŸŽ€βœ¨

Erica also mentions reusing items from past projects, such as a chipboard butterfly and a circle die cut with a butterfly inside. She loves using frames in a different way and adding pops of black to her design. πŸ¦‹πŸ–€

She's also using a one-inch circle punch to create butterfly shapes. She plans to cut the butterfly in half and place each half in opposite corners of the layout, along with various embellishments and stickers. πŸ¦‹βœ‚οΈ She also plans to add strips of patterned paper and twine to the bottom of the layout. πŸ§΅πŸ“
