It is Kristin here with you today. :D A couple of days ago Melanie Jarocki posted a school themed layout that she made with our September Hip Kit. I decided to use her page as my inspiration for a two-page layout showcasing this year’s back to school photos.
By the time I got to work on this layout, I only had bits and pieces leftover from my September kit. I had used the rest of it on my other DT projects. So, I decided to take what I had leftover from my kit, (including the wood veneer “number” border from our September Embellishment Add-On Kit and some other miscellaneous things from my “stash” to create this two page layout.
I know I have said this many times, but I have to say it again… Kimberly does such a great job choosing products for each month’s Hip Kit. I love the fact that goodies from our past kits coordinate so easily with our new ones. Since Sami’s skirt has polka dots, I wanted to extend that pattern across both pages. I did this using some polka dot washi tape from an earlier kit. The circles with the red chevrons were from last year’s November Hip Kit. These circles match the miscellaneous red and white chevron washi tape that I had on hand.
Thanks for visiting today! I hope my layout has inspired you to do some scrap-lifting of your own. Make sure to visit us again tomorrow – because we will have some more great projects created with our September Hip Kit to share with you. :D xo – Kristin
