It’s Kristin here today. I want to share a couple of layouts that I made with our March Hip Kit. For the first one, I used this picture of Sami that I have had for quite some time. I like to match my photos to my papers when I scrap. So, I was waiting for the just right paper to come my way so I to scrap this photo. The March Kit had exactly what I was looking for!
As I began designing my layout, I had a bunch of scraps left from other projects that I had made. So, I thought I would try to use them on my page. I played around with layering different patterns and color combinations – and thought this one would work well. I also slightly resized my scraps to fit my design.
To finish it off, I added a lot of stitching on this one. Straight lines, zig zags and crazy messy stitching, I just love the way machine stitching completes my page.
The really nice thing about our Hip Kits, is that Kimberly does such a great job combining products from different manufacturers – and they ALL COORDINATE perfectly! Another great thing is that often times you will find that products from previous kits will work well with a newer one. On this layout, I used some random brads that I had left over from one or more of our previous Hip Kits. (I can't tell you which one because after I'm done with a kit, I put all of my brads into one container.) :D
I also used some Washi tape that was from our July 2011 Embellishment Add-On Kit. I love that matched these products in our March Hip Kit perfectly.
I made a cute little flowers out of punched out circles. We have a great TUTORIAL TUESDAY that will show you exactly how to make these little flowers. Make sure to check it out because you will be amazed at how easy it is.
