November Traditions memory planner, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!  I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday!  Today, I’m sharing a spread in my Memory Planner that I shared on the Hip Kit Club blog a few days ago.  Even though it’s a week in November, I created a Christmas spread.  Every year, we take our daughters to see Santa sometime in the week of Thanksgiving.  We do this for a few reasons: the girls have some days off from school, there is usually no line to see Santa, and we like to beat the December mall crowds.  I thought it would be fun to document the reason for our tradition, and to show pictures of each of my 3 girls’ first trip to see Santa.  (P.S. we went to see Santa this year on Tuesday, the 21st, and we were the only ones there!)

I found myself using a lot of exclusive products from the November 2017 Main Kit, Embellishment Kit, Project Life Kit, and December Documented Kit.  There are lots of exclusive goodies in these kits!

I started my spread by laying out the most important parts: the pictures, the title, and the journaling.  I backed the 3 pictures with pattern paper, and layed them out where I wanted them to go.  Then I worked on the title; I fussy cut “November” from one of the Project Life cards, and I love the exclusive gold alpha!  Next, I drew out a few lines, and added my journaling.

Once all the important pieces were in place, I filled some of the empty spots with embellishments.  One of my favorite parts of the spread are the ornaments that I fussy cut from an exclusive 8×8 paper in the December Documented kit.  I added 3 ornaments on each side of the spread for balance.

I finished off my spread with some machine stitching and gold ink splatters.

I absolutely love how this turned out!  I love having all the pictures of my girls’ first Santa visit on one spread.  (I love this story so much, that I may have to do a layout and/or document it in my December Documented album as well!)

I hope I have inspired you to get crafty!  I highly recommend you check out these kits if you haven’t yet!

Happy Tuesday!
