It is Kristin here with you today. I have a couple of layouts that I want to share with you that I created with our amazing June 2012 Hip Kit.
I am just now figuring out the Instagram craze, and have started taking some Instagram photos with my iPhone. It is so much fun. My kids are loving taking pics on my phone too. My first layout features this great Instagram photo that we took trying to get all of us in the in in the shot. There is a feature where you can format photo to have that retro 70’s polaroid feel.
The Studio Calico Mistable Cameras are so much fun! I sprayed the one on my layout with Mister Huey Mist to give it a pop of color. I also used added some paint splatters to the kraft cardstock using red, blue and white mists. This gives my page a playful whimsical look.
I added layers of different patterned papers along with couple of tags cut from the Story Teller Tag Cuts paper. I wanted my layout to have a random feel, so I just played with all of the layers and tags and other embellishments until I got them placed where I wanted them. I finished my page by adding a bit of black ribbon from my stash to each of the tags.
I love how versatile our June Hip Kit is – there are so many great papers and embellishments to choose from. Every single project that I have created this month has had a totally different look and feel to it. This next layout has such great texture and dimension. One of my favorite papers in this month’s kit was the Echo Park This & That Border paper. It had some great little sentiments, some awesome patterned strips along with a bunch of fun icons – so many options in just one sheet of paper! :D I used the “Remember this moment forever” and the “You make the world go round” quotes on this layout. I also hand cut the little flags out of that same paper.
I LOVED the felt die cut border and Kraft Funday Chipboard Accents included in the June Embellishment Add-On Kit. I layered the “Practically perfect…” sticker to one of the smaller Storyteller tags to make it stand out a bit more. I clustered that with a few of the Miss Caroline buttons a chipboard accent. I love how this came together.
I hope that my layouts have inspired you to pull out your June Hip Kit and get creating with it! Leave a comment on my post… I would love to hear from you! If you create a project that you want to share with us… post it on our Facebook page!
