Hey friends! Today I’m sharing a layout that I created with the September 2019 Hip Kits. I was challenged to use multiple cut files on my layout, so I used 2 Hip Kit Club exclusive cut files.
I’m using this cute little photo of my 3rd daughter on her first Halloween. When I saw the Cute Little Pumpkin cut file, I knew I had to use it with this photo. She was only about a week old in the photo, and she’s almost 3 now, so I’m glad to have this scrapped!
I also filmed a YT process video
I cut the Cute Little Pumpkin cut file, as well as 2 more freestanding pumpkins, and I backed them with a Dear Lizzy pattern paper.
On my background, I used some Vicki Boutin acrylic paint (which was in a color kit many many months ago), and I mixed it with a little bit of white gesso to tone it down, and I did some dry brushing on my cardstock. I really like how it brings out the texture on the cardstock. I also added some back and forth machine stitching.
I used a couple of the HKC exclusive PL cards, one to back my photo and another for my journaling. They were perfect for the warm color scheme I was going for.
I also embellished my layout with a lot of flowers that I fussy cut from Dear Lizzy pattern papers. I love the sketchy vibes of the florals! To even further the sketchy details, I used one of the florals from the Dear Lizzy stamp set, and stamped a few flowers with black ink.
I really love how my layout turned out. Don’t forget to check out the process video for more details. Make sure to stop by the Hip Kit Club website for the September & October kits!
