May 2012 Hip Kit… A Sweet Layout by Guest Designer, Lisa Wilkinson…

Hi Everyone!

It is Lisa Wilkinson here with you today.  I have a super fun layout to share with you that I created with the awesome May Hip Kit.  But before I do that, I thought I would share a couple more little facts about myself.  :) 

  • I am married to the love of my life.  Together we have 6 children with everything from a teen to a new baby.  We are busy and active and loud.   The truth is I love having a big family!  I feel so blessed to have been given so much. Yes, we may not do it perfectly, but we all do it together.
  • I live in New Hampshire, between the Lakes Region and the White Mountains and about an hour from the ocean…. all of my favorite things!
  • I enjoy photography, hiking with my family and gardening and preserving.  I also enjoy making homemade household products.

Now…  here is the layout that I am so excited to show you…  I absolutely love the Delightful paper from Echo Park’s Sweet Day Collection.  This paper is full of little hexagons!  They are all the rage right now, and the minute I saw that paper I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.DSC_1295

I began by layering some strips of a few of that patterned papers that are included in the May main Hip Kit.  Then I hand cut a bunch of the hexagons from the Delightful paper and arranged them on my layout.  I added some machine stitching in the center of each hexagon, and used the stitched lines to handwrite words that describe my girl.DSC_1296

Next, I added a little bit of ribbon from the May Embellishment Add-On Kit to the bottom of my layout.  I created my title using the the fun banner stickers from the Dear Lizzy Remarks stickers along with the Amy Tangerine Thickers.


I finished off my layout  with a few bits and pieces of Smash Washi Tape from the main kit, and some splatters of the lovely Mister Huey’s Mist from the May Embellishment Add-On Kit.  The sweet buttons were perfect thing for a final touch.


Thanks so much for visiting today.  I am having so much fun guest designing!  I hope my layout has inspired you pull your Hip Kit out and create something wonderful.  Make sure to come back tomorrow to see another great project made with the May Hip Kit

Happy crafting!  -Lisa-
