October 2012 Hip Kit… 2 fabulous layouts by Kimberly Hutchison…

Hi Everyone!

It is Kimberly here with you today.  I have a couple of super cute Halloween layouts to share with you that I created with our October 2012 Hip Kit.  This kit has so many fun products in it – that my pages came together so easily – and I am really happy with how they turned out.

When I design most of my layouts – I tend to leave space either at the top or the bottom for my title.  This time – I decided to run my title through the center of my page, and I layered photos and embellishments above and below the title.  I love how all of the elements are clustered together without being overcrowded.

 I created my title with a combination of  Witch Hazel alphabet stickers combined with a Chip N’ Stick shape, one of the little Word Stickers and an Elle’s Studio Pennant.   The main part of my title included the orange Witch Hazel alphabet – but I felt like they needed to be a bit more substantial. So, matted the orange alphas with black cardstock.  This little trick made my title stand out better.

Packaging always comes in handy.  I used the little glassine bag to hide a couple of journaling tags.  I wanted to give it a bit more detail so I machine stitched along the sides of the bag.  I also layered a few of the Witch Hazel Miscellany cards with it.  I misted a couple of the Studio Calico Veneer Arrows (from a previous month’s Hip Kit) with October Afternoon Midnight Sprinker Mist (from our October Embellishment Add-On Kit).  These black accents are a great little finishing touch.


These are some of my favorite photos of my daughter, Mackenzie.  She was 11 at the time – and was full of personality and didn’t care about being silly.  I used one of the Miscellany cards, but I wanted it to stretch vertically on my page.  So, I cut it in half – and layered it under my photo and underneath the black & white border.

I love the glittery Thickers from our Embellishment Add-On Kit.  The aqua blue glittered letters were perfect for my title.  I love how they stand out against the other bold patterns on my page.

I layered the velvet ric rac under my photos, and added a zig zag stitch to secure it to my page.

I hope you are feeling inspired to create something wonderful with your October Hip Kit.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Tomorrow, we will have another great project to share with you that we made with our October kit – so make sure to come back to check it out.  xo – Kimberly –
