August 2012 Hip Kit… Another layout by Kimberly Hutchison…

Hi Everyone!

It is Kimberly here with you again today.  My scraproom is still scattered with all of the goodies in our August Hip Kit – and yesterday I put those products to use and created another layout.   I am so excited to share it with you.  I hope you like it!


I used 5 different patterned papers on my page.  All of the patterned papers in our August kit coordinate perfectly together – this made combining them and layering them them together super easy.  By adding the black and white borders I gave my layout a horizontal line which anchored the photos to the layout.


I think the combination of glittered Thickers (from our Embellishment Add-On Kit) & the Echo Park black cardstock alphabet stickers (from our main kit) really make the title “POP”.  The glittered Thickers add nice texture and dimension too.


I created a cluster of embellishment in the upper left corner by layering one of the Pebbles masking tape stickers, a masking tape sticker and a few of the mini alphabet stickers (from our main kit) along with the October Afternoon Chip n’ Stick border (from our Embellishment Add-On Kit).  The scalloped chipboard border was a bit too long for the embellishment cluster at the top of my page, so I cut it down a bit and used the remaining piece at the bottom of the layout which repeated the scallop and red and white pattern on my page.  I stamped the “graph” pattern onto the wood veneer butterfly using black ink.  I made a body butterfly by tying red & white baker’s twine between the two wings.


At the bottom of the Dreamy Days paper there is a row of polariods that are cut in half.  I hand cut each of these smaller pieces and scattered them along the top of my photos.  I really like the addition of accent colors and patterns – plus the layering gives a little extra texture too.

Thanks for visiting today!  I hope you are inspired to carve some time out for yourself to do something creative.  Doing something you love is so rejuvenating…  which makes you a better “you” for everyone in your life.  I hope you will come back again tomorrow where we will have another project created with our September Hip Kit to share with you.

xo – Kimberly
