First Day | Hip Kit Club

Hi friends! I have a new layout to share using the December 2016 Hip Kits. This layout is based off sketch #9 in our Hip Kit Club Facebook Forum Sketch Series.

I used one of the Pink Paislee-Take Me Away pattern papers from the Main Kit as my background. I then layered a piece of light gray Concrete American Crafts Cardstock from the Cardstock Kit and the silver foiled dot pattern paper from Echo Park.

To add interest around the photo I added multiple ephemera pieces from the Take Me Away ephemera pack included in the Main Kit and ephemera pieces from the HKC exclusive ephemera pack included in the Project Life Kit. I also added another small layer behind my photo using my favorite pattern paper from the Take Me Away Collection.

I love embellishments and ephemera that add dimension and texture so I grabbed one of the Take Me Away epoxy paperclips from the Project Life Kit and attached a couple of the Maggie Holmes tassels, from the Main Kit, to the paperclips. I added a couple of the white flowers from the Amy Tan Thickers sheet, also from the Main Kit, to the top left and bottom right of the page for balance and symmetry.

One of the things I love about Hip Kits are the multiple packs of Thickers that are included in the kits. I had a hard time choosing which set of Thickers to use for my title but finally settled on the super fun and colorful Pink Paislee-Take Me Away Thickers from the Embellishment Kit. I added my journaling to the gray American Crafts cardstock and also tucked in a few scrap pieces of pattern paper from the Take Me Away Collection under the photo for an extra pop of color. For final touches I added machine stitching and a sprinkling of the Carta Bella enamel dots included in the Embellishment Kit.

I’ve put together a YouTube video so you can see the process of how this layout came together.

Thanks for joining me today!
