Beautiful Eight, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

Who has tried fringe details on a layout?
This week, I was challenged to make a project with fringe. I’m working with the June 2018 Hip Kit Club Main kit, Project Live kit, Embellishment kit, and Color kit.

I made a layout about my middle girl turning 8.  I’ve always thought that this was the age when you started growing up.  My girl has done a lot of growing up, but I love that she still has a lot of “little” left in her.

I made fringe by cutting 1.25 inch strips of the Bella Blvd floral paper and plain white copy paper. I hand cut slits in the paper, leaving about 1/4 inch at the top. I glued down the tops of the fringe paper onto scrap pieces of paper, starting from the bottom and layering each strip on top.

Using my silhouette, I cut out a few circles in various sizes across the pink cardstock.  I added some Shimmerz paint splatter to the cardstock.  Once dry, I added the hand stitching around the 3 big circles.   Then I backed these circles with the fringe paper, and other scraps of pattern paper.  I added some more machine stitching and hand stitching around the rest of the circles.

I added the photos, title, journaling.  Then I added all the fun embellishments to finish off my layout.

I really love how this project turned out, and I hope you give handmade fringe a try!

If you’re interested, I used fringe on another layout, which you can read about in this post, and funnily enough, it was a layout about my girl turning seven.

Happy Wednesday friends!
