Then & Now, featuring Hip Kit Club

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!

Happy Sunday!
