Happy Friday!!! It has been a good week so far. I have found some time to scrap a bit over the past couple of days – which has been so much fun. I have two layouts to share with you today that I created with our amazing December 2012 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits.
I love the Amy Tangerine die cuts included in this kit!!! When I opened the Amy Tangerine die cuts, I absolutely loved the little camera – and I think it worked perfectly on my layout. I also used the heart, and a tab from that same pack to give detail to my page.
The red heart patterned paper was a little to bold for my page, so I toned it down by putting a swatch of it inside a glassine bag. This kept that bold color and pattern from overwhelming my layout. I also wanted to repeat a few more red elements on my page… so I added a red button, and some baker’s twine from the main kit, a red opaque gem (from our December Embellishment Add-On Kit, and a little bit of red and white grid washi tape from my stash. I also machine stitched around the edges of each strip with red thread. I think the red accents give a “POP” of color and some contrast to my page. I used a blue chalk ink pad to color the “remember” wood veneer. Chalk ink has a more opaque creamy color that regular dye ink, and it has better coverage and dries more quickly than paint and mist. I repeated aqua accents with a couple of buttons and a decorative border strip. The tag from the Pebbles Seen & Noted Journaling Cards (from our Embellishment Add-On Kit) worked perfectly for my title.
I hope my layouts have inspired you to do some scrapping of your own soon. Make sure to stop by tomorrow for another collection of projects created with our December 2012 Hip Kit. xo – Kimberly –
