Hey friends and welcome! Today I have a layout share for the Hip Kit Club sketch challenge. There’s a new weekly challenge every Friday over on the Hip Kit Club Member Forum on Facebook. If you haven’t checked it out, I encourage you to head over there. There’s lots of inspiration, and you could win a $10 gift certificate to the Hip Kit Club store if you take part!
The sketch this week is from the lovely Jana:
Here is my take on the sketch:
The March Hip Kits are filled with such “spring-ie” goodness, I knew I wanted to make a spring layout. We were at our neighborhood park on St. Patrick’s day when I had a strong feeling of deja vu. My girls were trying to balance together on the sled-looking spring rider, when I suddenly remembered a photo that I took of them together on the same toy on St. Patrick’s day years ago. I love, love, love these photos! Of course I had to do a then & now layout. Look how much L & E have grown! That word sticker at the top that says “all things grow with love” could not be more perfect for this layout! I also added a photo that included the baby at the bottom, because that’s the real now.
I absolutely love the papers from the Main Kit (the floral is from Dear Lizzy) & the pink cardstock from the March Cardstock Kit matches them perfectly! I used the Vicki Boutin watercolors from the Color Kit to jazz up the pink cardstock a bit before I added my pattern paper layers. I love that there is a white included in the watercolor set…it allows you to really customize your colors! For my title, I used the handwriting thickers from the Embellishment Kit. I love all the butterflies from Jen Hadfield, which are included in the main kit. I finished off my layout with some word stickers that are in the Project Life Kit.
I love how my layout turned out! I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty, and I hope you stop by the HKC Member Forum on FB!
