Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a few projects I made with the new Pack Your Bags and Scoot crafting kit from the Hydrangea Hippo etsy store.

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 line seems geared toward younger children, I found the colors and embellishments to be perfect for my older teen and started out with a 12×12 layout.

And then, since I couldn't resist all the train related stickers in the kit, I had to cut a train shaped mini album to document a cross country train trip we took when the children were younger.  The super cute embellishments in the kit were just perfect for my travel themed mini.  I love the buttons, ribbons, sequins, oh my!


And finally, for something completely different I decided to create this rose topiary as a bit of home decor, using the papers in the kit to make the roses, lots of the gorgeous trims…and for the butterflies, I punched into the playing cards.

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.
