April 2012 Hip Kit… Layout by Kristin Kingrey…

Hi Everyone!

It is Kristin here today to share a layout that I created with our April 2012 Hip Kit.  I have to say that I just love the Crate Paper Chipboard Accents that were included in our April Embellishment Add-On Kit.  They are beautiful on their own, but when you pair them up with all of the other awesome things in this month’s kit you can’t help but create something wonderful.  One of the best things about our Hip Kits is seeing what each designer does with them.   Each style and interpretation are so different.  I get inspired every time I see a new project posted.

So the layout that I am sharing with you today is made with a photo of my 3 year old daughter, Sami.  She absolutely loves to get her picture taken.  She is my little fashion model.   She loves to pose, so we have little mini photo shoots all the time!   This picture is from one of those shoots.

The flowers and colors in our April Hip Kit perfectly matched my photo.  I love the Crate Paper Border Stickers…  and I used a lot of them on this page.  I also added some machine stitching onto my layout to finish it off.   Stitching adds such great detail -  sometimes tiny little things make a big difference.  Stitching is one of those things for me.  If you have never stitched on a layout I encourage you to get out your sewing machine and give it a try.  No sewing machine?  Use your paper piercer and stitch by hand.  You will love the result!

Happy Scrapping and have a great weekend!
