Welcome and thanks for stopping by! Today I’ve got a layout to share with you using the September Hip Kit Club main kit, paper kit, cardstock kit, embellishment kit, color kit, and the project life kit…I used it all, LOL! I couldn’t help it!
A weekly sketch challenge is posted every Friday on the Hip Kit Club Facebook Member Forum, and a few design team members create projects based on the sketch. I highly recommend you check it out to see how you can win a $10 coupon code to the store!
Here’s my take on the sketch:
(Ellie is my big ball of sunshine…oh, I love her so! The ambassador award at her school is a very big deal. Only a handful of students get this award a couple times a school year. Ellie’s big sister Lola has gotten the ambassador award twice, and Ellie was determined to get that medal too. Imagine her excitement when she got picked to be the ambassador (finally, she says) in first grade!)
To begin my layout, I started with some mixed media. I used a big round brush, and dipped it straight into the bottle of the Shimmerz Tuscan Sun Spritz to create the big ink splatters. I also added a few splatters of the Shimmerz Caribbean Sunset Spritz, and some Heidi Swapp color shine from my stash. After letting that dry, I used the Echo Park Knight Sky stencil and some texture paste to add some tiny tone on tone white stars.
Once everything was dry, I layed out all my photos, and decided where I wanted to put my title. I love the mixed alpha title I created using the Shimelle glitter foam thickers, the Paige Evans sticker sheet blue square letters, and the Hip Kit Club gold alpha.
I added some hand stitched stars that I fussy cut from a Paige Evans pattern paper, and a few stars from the Shimelle glitter foam thickers.
I felt like the right side needed a little something something, so I added a paper strip from the Maggie Holmes Festival pattern paper. I love how the strip of tickets coordinate with the photo and colors of embellishments. It also justifies my layout to the right, leaving all the white space to the left.
This page was so much fun to create! I used lots of techniques…mixed media, mixed title, layering, hand stitching, and machine stitching too! I love my title especially! I need to try the mixed alpha title more often!
That’s it for me! I hope you like my layout, and are inspired to get crafty! Check out our Hip Kit Club Member Forum Facebook page to see the sketch!
Happy Sunday y’all!
