Together, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!  Today I’m sharing a layout I made using the Hip Kit Club October 2017 Main kit and an exclusive cut file designed by fellow team member Jessica Fabiano.  The roses cut file she designed works perfectly with the Jen Hadfield Heart of Home Gatherings pattern paper.

When I saw the cut file, and the floral pattern paper, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to scrap a photo of a wedding we went to a few months ago.  The wedding was in Wisconsin, and boy was it beautiful up there!  We left the sweltering heat of June in Texas, and enjoyed refreshing, even chilly weather in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

I was debating whether I wanted to back the cut files with pattern paper, but in the end, I decided on white on white.  I think it mimics and highlights the lace overlay on the bride’s dress.  I also love how clean the white looks, and if you know me, you know I’m a big fan of negative space.

I fussy cut lots of flowers from the Jen Hadfield paper: the roses, daisies, and the little blue flowers.  That paper is made for fussy cutting!  I must admit it took me a bit of time cutting all the little details, but I find that it helps to get the creative juices flowing.

I also gathered a few leaves from the Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary ephemera pack, and created bouquets of leaves and flowers around the bottom left and top right corners of the photo.  I used foam squares on a few of the flowers to create lots of dimension.

I trimmed off a tiny bit of the white cardstock, and matted my layout on a piece of Dear Lizzy Stargazer pattern paper.  To finish off my layout, I added my title, using an ephemera piece and the Hip Kit Club exclusive blue alpha.  I also wrote out my journaling, and added just a hint of Heidi Swapp gold color shine ink splatters.

I really love how all the details highlight the wedding photo.  The wreath of roses in the cut file highlights the lace dress and frames my photo, and all the fussy cut flowers highlight the bouquet.

I hope you enjoyed my layout share today!  I shared it on the Hip Kit blog on Thursday, and you can find it here.  Don’t forget to check out all the awesome kits on the Hip Kit Club site!  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Saturday!

Trio of cards, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey friends!  Today, I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a trio of cards.  When I saw the cut file in this month’s Take Note kit, I thought they would make perfect sentiments for handmade cards.

I was really inspired by Kristina Werner, and tried this watercolor technique.  I love how bold and graphic my cards turned out!

Grow up, featuring Scrapbook Circle

Hey guys!  Today I’m on the Scrapbook Circle blog with a layout using the April Our Story kit.

My oldest daughter is growing up so fast, and I wanted to do a layout featuring this quote by E. E. Cummings.  I cut the quote out of navy cardstock on my Silhouette machine (which I am still loving!).  I’ve got a little hidden journaling on this layout; a tag behind the larger photo.

Here’s my beautiful girl:
