Pack Your Bags and Scoot to Hydrangea Hippo


Hi everyone! Today I wanted  to share with you a few projects I made with the Hydrangea Hippo Pack Your Bags and Scoot crafting kit that was featured over on the Hydrangea Hippo blog a few weeks ago.

When I saw this kit I loved the fun colors and embellishments and couldn't wait to start creating.  In the end, I was amazed at the variety of projects I was able to create.

Although this paper line from Echo Park seems geared toward younger children, I found that the colors and patterns when mixed with the kit embellishments were perfect for my older teen and started out with a 12x12 layout.
The sticker sheets and papers in this kit contained many train and travel related elements, so I decided to use my Cricut to cut a mini album in a train shape to feature a few of the photos from our cross country train trip.  Yes, this was just a few years ago.....look at those baby faces.  hee hee
 
And finally, for something completely different I decided to create a rose topiary as a bit of home decor.  I used my Tim Holtz pinecone die with my Sizzix and lots of the papers in the kit to make the roses.  I punched my butterflies out of the playing cards and then layered on the trims.  Hydrangea Hippo always has the most gorgeous trims.....


I still can't believe the variety of projects I was able to make with this kit.  From beautiful, spring, home decor, a project for an older teen, to a mini album filled with photos of my children when they were younger, this kit offers something for everyone.

Be sure and grab your kit today and get started creating.

Hugs.
