Hey there crafty friends! I have a new layout to share today for Hip Kit Club using the 2016 October Kits! My theme for this week was “no white” and given that the last 2 of the 4 layouts I’ve created for Hip Kit Club haven’t had white you would think this would be easy! BUT this ended up being quite the challenge! I ALWAYS enjoy a papercrafting challenge and was determined to make this work! I think challenges really help push the creativity and I’m so happy with the end result!
The initial struggle was trying to figure out what papers and what photo I wanted to use, but once I had that narrowed down I was good to go! I chose multiple pattern papers from the Main Kit as my background. I really love how the pattern papers from Simple Stories-Posh, Maggie Holmes-Gather, and Pink Paislee Take Me Away complement each other so well. Kimberly always does an amazing job pairing multiple products from different manufacturers in the kits month after month!!
Once I had the background complete I started working on my photo mat. I used the We R Memory Keepers-Honey I’m Home cut apart sheet which is included in the Main Kit, a Project Life Card from the Project Life Kit, vellum from my stash, and the light pink American Crafts Flamingo Cardstock from the Cardstock Kit.
Once the photo mat was complete I started embellishing. I added multiple pieces from the We R Memory Keepers-Honey I’m Home ephemera pack from the Embellishment Kit, a camera from the Dear Lizzy-Saturday ephemera pack from Main Kit, and a few stickers from the WRMK-Honey I’m Home Sticker Sheet from the Project Life Kit.
Titles can be tricky and I think a lot of scrapbookers would agree with this! I decided on the word ‘Celebrate’ because Andy & I were celebrating our 11 year wedding anniversary on the day I snapped this photo. I love the shiny gold Thickers from the Embellishment Kit and they fit perfectly along one of the layers on my background! Putting the title at an angle adds a lot of visual interest to the layout!
For final touches I added a few hearts from the Simple Stories-Posh chipboard sheet from the Embellishment Kit and a sprinkling of enamel dots from the Project Life Kit. I did add journaling to this layout using my WRMK Typecast Typewriter documenting the occasion!!
Here is my process video showing how this layout came together!!
Thanks for joining me today!
