Hey friends! Today I’m sharing a layout I created using the March 2018 Hip Kits. I did a lot of fussy cutting, and I altered some thickers to fit my layout. I used the Hip Kit Club Main Kit and the Project Life Kit for my layout.
Last summer, we went to an American Girl Doll store at the Mall of America while on vacation, and my daughter got her very first AG doll as an early birthday present. It was a dream come true for her, and it was such a magical day. Her smile just lit up her face!
As soon as I saw the Dear Lizzy floral paper in the kit, I knew I wanted to fussy cut it. I kept it out with a pair of scissors on my counter in the living room, and when I had a spare minute, I would fussy cut a flower out. Next thing you know, I had the whole paper fussy cut.
I have been loving big titles lately, so I incorporated the fussy cut flowers into my title. I cut out the word MAGICAL on a piece of white cardstock with my silhouette. I traced the letters on another piece of white cardstock, and filled in the spaces with the flowers I fussy cut. Then I popped up the cardstock with the letters cut out on top with foam squares.
I love the dimension it created.
I also wanted to use some of the Jen Hadfield word thickers, but the color didn’t really match my layout. I decided to alter them with heat embossing. I used VersaMark ink, rose gold embossing powder, and a heat gun to transform the thickers to fit my page. I actually heat embossed it twice for thicker coverage, and I think they turned out really well!
I am a big fan of white space, and I wanted to keep the focus on the title and journaling, so I kept the other embellishments relatively simple. I added the acetate butterflies, some Maggie Holmes word stickers, and machine stitching.
I love the way my layout turned out. I hope I’ve inspired you to make different products work for you.
