It is Kimberly here with you again today. My scraproom is still scattered with all of the goodies in our August Hip Kit – and yesterday I put those products to use and created another layout. I am so excited to share it with you. I hope you like it!
I used 5 different patterned papers on my page. All of the patterned papers in our August kit coordinate perfectly together – this made combining them and layering them them together super easy. By adding the black and white borders I gave my layout a horizontal line which anchored the photos to the layout.
I think the combination of glittered Thickers (from our Embellishment Add-On Kit) & the Echo Park black cardstock alphabet stickers (from our main kit) really make the title “POP”. The glittered Thickers add nice texture and dimension too. I created a cluster of embellishment in the upper left corner by layering one of the Pebbles masking tape stickers, a masking tape sticker and a few of the mini alphabet stickers (from our main kit) along with the October Afternoon Chip n’ Stick border (from our Embellishment Add-On Kit). The scalloped chipboard border was a bit too long for the embellishment cluster at the top of my page, so I cut it down a bit and used the remaining piece at the bottom of the layout which repeated the scallop and red and white pattern on my page. I stamped the “graph” pattern onto the wood veneer butterfly using black ink. I made a body butterfly by tying red & white baker’s twine between the two wings.
At the bottom of the Dreamy Days paper there is a row of polariods that are cut in half. I hand cut each of these smaller pieces and scattered them along the top of my photos. I really like the addition of accent colors and patterns – plus the layering gives a little extra texture too.
Thanks for visiting today! I hope you are inspired to carve some time out for yourself to do something creative. Doing something you love is so rejuvenating… which makes you a better “you” for everyone in your life. I hope you will come back again tomorrow where we will have another project created with our September Hip Kit to share with you.
