December 2012 Hip Kit… 2 cheery projects by Cindy Stevens…

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are having a great weekend so far.  We don’t have anything going on today – so I plan to scrap ALL DAY LONG… and I will share my layouts & cards with you later on this week.  Today, I have a couple of super cute projects created by our wonderful, Cindy Stevens – using our December 2012 Hip Kit and Add-On Kits

Cindy’s layout is so bright and cheery!  I love how she incorporated the bold yellow and grey polka dot paper into her page – by using it as a substantial border.  It really makes a presence on her layout without overwhelming it.  I also really like how all of the elements are her page are kind of askew – it gives a sense of whimsy to it – which is perfect for her photo.  For those of you who have a linear style, try being a little more random with your placement – I think you will find it very freeing.  IMG_0098

The way she used a speech bubble as a part of her title was really clever.  She also included several elements from the Seen & Note Phrase Card Pad (from our December Embellishment Add-On Kit) in her page.  The “I’ll look back on this”  was that pad – and she cut it down into a banner flag to work it into her layout.  Each of the pages in that little book have a quote on one side and a basic patterned paper on the other (polka dot, grid & chevron).  This is a great way to add a little pop of color to a project without cutting into a 12×12 piece of paper.  Sometimes a little snip will do the trick.IMG_0100

This little card is super cute.  You can easily use your December Hip Kit to get a jumpstart on your Valentines Day cards.  Cindy cut the sentiment for her card out of the Phrase Card Pad.  This one product will go a such a long way – you can easily use it along both past and future Hip Kits – which is a huge plus.  If you don’t already have doilies in your stash… next time you are at Michael’s or Joann’s pick up a package of various size doilies.  They are an inexpensive way to add a pretty little detail to your layouts and cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you are feeling inspired to do something creative with your December Hip Kit.  Tomorrow we will have another collection of projects to share with you – so make sure to come back so you don’t miss out.  xo – Kimberly –
