This month’s inspiration kit is from the Hip Kit Club’s May 2016 kit. Such a pretty kit–I love navy and pink together. I began my kit with this color combination in mind.

But first, a little back story on how this kit came to be.
Not long ago, one of the biggest names in the industry closed its doors on its scrapbooking business. Basic Grey has been around almost as long as I have been scrapbooking.
I have always had a love/not-so-much-love relationship with Basic Grey. I loved how well their products coordinated with each other, but I not-so-much loved many of their designs. I often found the patterns to be too graphic for my style of scrapbooking, at least early on.
In recent years, however, I found myself using more Basic Grey products. So when the company announced that it was ceasing the sale of scrapbooking supplies, I was truly sad. I jumped on the chance to purchase a huge box of the last of the Basic Grey product lines.
This box of Basic Grey supplies has sat patiently in my studio, just waiting to be used. When I saw the navy and pink color scheme and graphic designs of our inspiration kit, I immediately thought of my BG box.
This month I pulled together the Basic Grey products that seemed to follow the color scheme found in the Hip Kit collection. Since using these supplies will be like a walk down memory lane, I named my kit Sweet Memories.
I hope you will check back this month to see the projects I create with this kit!
