Hello friends, I hope you are all having a wonderful day!
It’s time for another Hip Kit Club sketch layout! I will be using the Main kit, and Color kit for my layout. I am also using a September freebie cut file that you can access from the Hip Kit Club website.
I am documenting my oldest girl at the 6th grade awards ceremony. She was on the A honor roll for the entire year, and we are so proud of her. She truly is amazing!
Today I’m working with this fabulous sketch by fellow team member Jill:
When I have a sketch assignment, sometimes I follow the sketch pretty closely, other times I take a loose interpretation, and today, I took a few bits and pieces of inspiration for my layout. I really liked the 3 vertical photos, the layered elements, the journaling strips on the photos, and the pops of yellow.
First I cut the AMAZING cut file on white cardstock using my silhouette. I backed the letters with the navy blue Pinkfresh Studio papers, and the stars with the yellow Amy Tangerine paper. I added machine stitching on the stars to help them stand out a bit.
On the double thick white cardstock, I sprayed the Mustard Seed shimmerz directly onto the cardstock, concentrating the spray towards the middle. I also added some splatters using the shimmerz nozzle.
I added my photos on another piece of white cardstock that I trimmed to about 5 inches wide. I glued on a piece of the Pinkfresh Studio paper to the middle photo as a mat, and I trimmed the Pinkfresh Studio ephemera frame as an extra border under that photo.
I used foam squares and machine stitching to pull all my elements together. To finish off my layout, I added some journaling strips that I typed on my typewriter, gold asterisks from the alpha set included in the Main kit, and a few stamps from the Vicki Boutin stamp set.
I am loving these kits, I love this cut file, and I really like how my layout came together using the sketch as the inspiration! Don’t forget to stop by the Hip Kit Club Group Facebook page to take part in this weeks sketch!
