Today I’m sharing a layout featuring the September 2018 Hip Kits. I am using the Main kit, the Embellishment kit, and the enamel dots from the Project Life kit. I really wanted to create something with the Cottage paper from the Maggie Holmes Willow Lane collection, so I fussy cut all the little houses. I also picked the Eminence paper from Pinkfresh Studio (the blue to ombre), and for some reason, I thought it needed to be a Halloween layout.
I am a few years behind on my Halloween layouts, so it was a perfect opportunity to scrap one of the years. I chose photos from a few years ago, and wanted to document one of my older daughter’s costumes. I had asked her several years in a row if she wanted to go as Mary Poppins, and that year, she finally said yes. I bought a cheap straw hat on Amazon, spray painted it black, and hot glued some flowers on. The shirt, ribbon, tights, and shoes we already had, so I just had to buy the skirt. I LOVE how she looked! It’s one of my favorite costumes that she has had!
So for the layout, I lined up the fussy cut houses in 2 rows, and I stitched through them. I added my photos, and some journaling that I typed onto vellum. They are just some fun quotes from Mary Poppins.
To finish off my layout, I added the fun alpha title, and then I flicked some watered down white paint to add some stars to the sky.
Even though I didn’t use any Halloween themed products, I think my layout goes with the photos really well. The rows of houses remind me of the houses from the movie, and like I said, the background paper really made me think of Halloween.
I hope you guys like my layout…I think it turned out cute! I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty with your Hip Kits!
