October 2012 Hip Kit… 3 great fall-ish projects by Bethany Crowell…

Hi there!
Bethany here to share a few projects that I created with our October 2012 Hip Kit. I just love these my Hip Kits!!!   Our October kit has so many great papers and embellishments that are perfect for all those fall and Halloween themed projects!


I totally love the color of this cardstock (American Crafts Geyser) and that little ‘Halloween Fun’ card on the left (which is from the October Afternoon Witch Hazel Miscellany pack). Both have a vintage feel…which is perfect for these hilarious Halloween photos from my childhood. (Not that I’m vintage!! But it was a few years ago…LOL).


To me, it is all about the little details that make projects fun and special. And all the amazing embellishments in our October 2012 Hip Kit and Add-On Kits do not disappoint! They add just the right amount of happy to my layout.


Fabulous fonts are found (say that three times fast!) in this kit! The orange and black October Afternoon alphas are some of my new favorites…especially the black ones.  You’ll notice that I did steal a few of those great canvas stars from last month’s kit to use on this layout. I just couldn’t resist!


Next, I have a couple more fall-ish cards that I created with the October Hip Kit & Embellishment Add-On Kit.  Owls are still quite trendy and perfect for fall themed projects! Check out these two cards that incorporate a couple of cute owl stickers from this month’s kit…


I used several of the Echo Park Paper ‘Fall Fever’ Accent Stickers on this card. To give it a bit of dimension, I used some foam squares behind the owl sticker and the ‘FALL’ sentiment sticker. I also cut just a bit off of the October Afternoon Chip ‘n Stick scallop border from our Embellishment Add-On Kit to add another layer.


On my next card I kept the design really simple so that the fun colors and patterns of the paper could be the focus… and the owl sticker would pop! (Totally love that big-eyed owl!)


Part of my design process on this card was to incorporate three circle elements (the paper with the small polka dots, the round ink splatters and the one large, round sticker) that would contrast well with the striped paper and create a very balanced design. The paint splatters were created with the October Afternoon Midnight Sprinklers Mist from our October Embellishment Add-On Kit.
