Hello friends! Today I’m playing with Hip Kit Club exclusives from the July 2018 Hip Kits.
Since there were so many ice cream themed products, I knew I had to create an ice cream layout.
Here’s what I came up with:
I used photos of my youngest enjoying some Baskin Robins ice cream. My journaling says: “little miss loves ice cream already! her favorite flavor: whatever Mommy or Daddy is having.”
I started by splattering white cardstock with some shimmerz from last month’s color kit. Then I added some machine stitching. I’ve done this on a few other layouts, which you can see here and here, and I love the texture it adds! I love the HKC exclusive scalloped paper, and it was screaming to be fussy cut! I cut out the pink and blue scallops, then machine stitched them to my layout using coordinating thread.
I matted my photos to an HKC exclusive PL card and pattern paper, and adhered it to the layout with foam squares. Next, I used the HKC exclusive alphas for my title. I absolutely love the tiny alphas!
To finish off my layout, I just added in bits and pieces that matched the ice cream theme and the blue and pink colors I was going for. I used a lot more exclusives…how cute is that acetate & wood veneer ice cream cone?! I just used strong liquid glue (Ranger multi matte medium) to glue it to my layout, and it seems to be working great. I used a few pieces from the ephemera pack, some of the cute puffy hearts, and a few of the thin wood veneer.
I added my journaling that I typed up on my typewriter, and I was done! I love love love how my layout turned out!
I used the July 2018 Hip Kits: the Main kit, Project Life kit, the puffy stickers from the Embellishment Kit, and the white cardstock from the Cardstock kit. I hope I’ve inspired you to get out your July kits and get crafty!
