It is Kimberly here with you today. :D I have a few fun projects to share with you that I created with our fabulous October 2012 Hip Kit. I know that it has a lot of Halloween goodies in it – but don’t let it fool you… you can create projects for any occasion using the products in this kit.
I love Instagram photos! This is the first layout that I have created using these great little photos. This page has lots of layers.
Some things I altered to fit my page. I cut one of the Elle’s studio flags in half to add a little pop of color to my flag banner in the top left hand corner of my page. I also cut one of the October Afternoon label stickers in half to give a bit of variation to that same cluster.
I used one of the post cards from the Witch Hazel Miscellany to add a some color and contrast to the layers underneath my photos. This little trick added to the design without taking away from the photos themselves. I cut the “Witch” flashcard down a bit. I only wanted the larger “Witch” portion – I didn’t need all of the extra blank space on that card. Isn’t that witch sticker cute? I knew I wanted to include it on my page. It had a little space for journaling on it that I didn’t want to show, so I layered it underneath some of the other elements on my page. I also used one of the Simple Stories Memorabilia Pockets from our September Embellishment Add-On Kit to hide my journaling. I spiced it up a bit by added the cute grey polka dot paper to the top of it. This gave contrast between the pocket itself and my journaling card. I also added machine stitching throughout my page for nice finishing touch.
I used the polka dot brad for the “O” in October. I added Glossy Accents to the alphabet stickers to give them a little shine similar to the brad.
used a little bits of the Washi Tape from our October Embellishment Kit to add around my page to add some contrast. I notched a couple of strips to create flags for the banner at the top of my page. I also layered a few extra strips here and there to the main part of my page. The glitter Thickers (also from our Embellishment Add-On) were perfect for my title. The color and sparkle made my title “POP” right off the page.
This card includes this cute little tree from the Echo Park Fall Fever sticker sheet. I punched the open scallop border from the Simple Stories woodgrain paper from the Take a Hike collection. This gave my card a little bit of contrast. Then, I cut one of the labels from the Witch Hazel Word Stickers and the Chip n’ Stick border (both from our Embellishment Add-On Kit) and added them to my card. They gave it extra texture and detail. I love how machine machine stitching adds the perfect finishing touch.
I hope the projects that I shared today have inspired you to do something crafty. I would like to challenge you to create a project with lots of layers. This is a great way to use bits and pieces of your kits. Share your project by posting a photo of it on our Facebook page. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Make sure to come back again tomorrow to see our next projects created with our fabulous October Hip Kit. xo – Kimberly-
