In addition to our Main Hip Kit - we also offer a monthly Embellishment Add-On Kit, a Patterned Paper Add-On Kit, and a Cardstock Add-On Kit.  Each of these Add-On kits will coordinate perfectly with our Main Kit.  

Our Design Team Members use the products included in our Hip Kit and all of the Add-On Kit(s) to create layouts, cards and an occasional altered project. Our designer projects will be shared with our Hip Kit Club members to inspire them with creative and innovative ways to put the products in their kits together.


  • Create 3 single page layouts, 1 double page layout and 4 cards each month using solely the products included in our monthly Hip Kit & Add-On Kit(s).  There may also be an occasional mini album or altered project.
