August 2012 Hip Kit… A wonderful layout and tutorial by Kristin Kingrey…


It’s Kristin here today sharing a layout that I did with our amazing August Hip Kit.  My niece spent the summer with us & this photo was taken the day before she left to go back to college. It was so nice to have her with us this summer.  My kids love their cousin so much, even though she is quite a bit older than they are.  I think that my title  “Big & Little” tells  the story for this picture.  😀

I added some tiny little details to my page to finish it off.  I machine stitched across the letters of my title.  The stitching on the tile alphabet covered up the top part of the "T’s" in “little”.  So, I used my white gel pen to make them into little  so that the title could easily be read.  This was a really simple fix.

I really like the aqua Everyday Eclectic patterned paper from Echo Park.  The subtle pattern worked  perfectly for the background of my page.  The rest of the papers I used reflected the colors of the kids clothing.  I used my Cricut to cut the large circle out of the October Afternoon Minnow Creek paper.  If you don’t have a Cricut, you can trace a plate and hand cut one out.

I made these cute little daisy flowers for accent pieces for my page.  I found the instructions on how to make them somewhere on PinterestPinterest is a great place to find out how to make embellishments out of items you find in your Hip Kits.

Here is a tutorial that I put together to show you how to create these dimension flowers. I hope you will give it a try and make some for yourself.  They are super easy, they just take a few minutes and they turn out so cute.  My punch for the biggest petals was a 1.5" punch and the other one was a 1" punch.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope that I have inspired you to do something scrappy today.  Make sure to come back tomorrow, and we will have another fabulous project created with our August Hip Kit.  😀
