I used a couple of the Pink Paislee-Paige Evans-Take Me Away pattern papers from the Main Kit for my background and the for the layers behind my photo. To help separate the layers of pattern papers behind my photo I used the American Crafts Concrete Cardstock from the Cardstock Kit.
I also added multiple ephemera pieces from the Take Me Away Ephemera Pack that is also included in the Main Kit. I added my journaling to one of the ephemera pieces using my We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter.
I wanted to add more texture to the layout so I grabbed one of the Pink Paislee-Take Me Away-epoxy paper clips from the Project Life Kit and tucked it along the journing card under my photo. For added texture I also slid one of the Maggie Holmes tassels from the Main Kit onto the paper clip. It never ceases to amaze me how well the colors match within these kits! Kimberly truly has a great eye for mixing and matching different products from different manufacturers.
For my title I used the black Thickers from the Main Kit to spell out the words ‘Field Trip’. I snapped this photo while Aidan and I were on the bus during a field trip with his class. I am always so grateful for these moments. He is just growing so quickly and everything just seems to change so fast. I really want to remember these moments and everything about this age! He’s such a great kid!
I still felt like the layout was missing something. For subtle detail I added tangled thread to the right and left of my photo. I just happened to have this yellow thread on my desk and it matched the yellow pattern paper perfectly! I also added machine stitching using white thread and multiple exclusive acrylic stars from the Project Life Kit to the layout! I love the size and color of these stars!
The layout is based off of the Hip Kit Club Facebook Forum sketch #5. Head over to the Forum to check out the sketch and the other design team girls interpretations.
I’ve also put together a process video showing how this layout came together!
Thanks so much for joining me today!!
