It is Bethany here and I have a couple of layouts to share with you today that I made with our October 2012 Hip Kit. I really, really, really love fall!!! I love the bright orange jack-o-lanterns, blazing red leaves, the scent of spiced cider simmering on the stove, chunky sweaters and woolie socks and the fact that there are so many things to be thankful for. One thing I’m always thankful for is when our mail carrier pulls up with my monthly box of Hip Kit goodness…and as usual, our October Hip Kit & Add-On Kits are FULL of goodness!!!
I love that vintage looking owl & happy jack pumpkin from the October Afternoon Witch Hazel Miscellany… and knew it would be perfect on this fall themed layout featuring an old photo of my sweet nieces in the pumpkin patch.
Before I placed the die cut and tree sticker on my layout, I did a little misting on the cream cardstock background to create a “glowing” effect behind the embellishments. The ‘remember this’ sentiment is an Ali Edwards stamp from my stash. I used black StazOn ink to stamp over the embellishments and photo. StazOn ink can be stamped on glossy and non-porous surfaces without smearing… so it is perfect for stamping over the top of a photo.
I still love the banner trend. I honestly don’t think I’ll ever tire of it! A combination of the Elle’s Studio Thankful Pennants and the ‘fall’ banner stickers from the Echo Park Fall Fever Accent Stickers made for a very fun, festive, fall banner – which was a perfect addition to my layout.
My next project is another Halloween themed layout I created with our fantastic October Hip Kit… I love all the layers on this page…even the glassine bag that some of the embellishments came in adds some fun texture and it actually serves as a journaling pocket too!
The Witch Hazel Chip N’ Stick shapes (from our October Embellishment Add-On Kit) add just a little bit of dimension to my layout. Layering them over other elements is an awesome way to create little embellishment clusters and it keeps them from looking like they are floating on your page.
I hope my layouts have inspired you to catch up on scrapbooking a few of your fall memories with our fantastic October Hip Kit! Thanks so much for visiting today. Don’t forget to stop by again tomorrow to see our next great projects created with our October kit. xo Bethany
