May 2012 Hip Kit… A few fun projects by Kristin Kingrey…

Hi Everyone…

It is Kristin here with you today.  I have been loving creating with our May Hip Kit.  It is so versatile.  I want to share a few of the projects that I have made using the products included in our May kit.

thinking of you cardLike Melanie, I was having a difficult time deciding how to use the cute little moped sticker from the Dear Lizzy Sticker Sheet.  I loved the sweet color palette on the moped, so I used that to determine the background and banner color for my card.  I pulled a sentiment stamp out of my stash, and “wah lah” here is a  cute little card that anyone would love to receive! 

The blues, red and yellows in our May kit were perfect for my son’s little league pictures. The bracket paper in the middle was cut using a We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 punch. If you don’t have a punch or die cut machine that can cut one of these, you can trace one out from another die cut paper you have on hand.

I am quite new at using masks, but I am really finding them to be a lot of fun.   It does take a little practice to figure out how much mist to use and what kind of coverage you want.  So make sure to pull out some scratch paper and play with them a bit before trying to use them on a project.  I love the chevron mask that was included in our May Embellishment Add-On Kit!!!  I used this mask as the inspiration for my page.

I used chevrons everywhere on my layout,  I misted some using the mask, I hand cut some from the My Minds Eye Chevron paper, and I punched the red rickrack using  an decorative edge punch.

Thanks for stopping by today to see my projects.  I hope they have inspired you to pull out your May Kit and make some cards and layouts of your own.  Make sure to come back tomorrow for another great project made with our May Hip Kit.  Happy crafting!  xo – Kristin
