Hi Everyone! Tonight I have a couple fabulous projects to share with you that Cindy Stevens created with our super fun December 2012 Hip Kit. Cindy always combines so many different patterned papers and other elements on her projects. Her layouts and cards are always full of texture and dimension – which makes them so much fun to look at. 😀
I find that it is difficult to do layouts about myself… and I don’t tend to think about taking photos of things that I love… I always think that I have to be in the photos. This is difficult because I always seem to be behind the lens. Cindy’s photo of her boots – has inspired me to create a layout about myself – using a photo of “something” that means something to me. I challenge you to try the same thing… and share your layout(s) with us on our Facebook Page this coming week. Everyone that shares a layout will be entered into a drawing to win a FREE GOODIE BAG!!! Our winner will be announced on Monday, February 4th at noon PST. You can’t win if you don’t play – so get scrapping!!!
The Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go Die Cuts are one of my favorite products from our December Kit. There are so many wonderful little bits and pieces in that one little package. Cindy used the “awesome” label, the multi colored arrow, and the heart from that pack to embellish this layout. The “Enjoy the journey” card, and the floral paper were from the Seen & Noted Phrase cards included in our Embellishment Add-On Kit this month. Adding the title along the border on the right side of the page – really balances her page and the buttons are a nice finishing touch. The pennants give a nice “POP” of color and a bit of dimension to her layout. Cindy cut the pennants with a punch, however they could easily be hand cut and given a scallop edge using decorative scissors. I really like the way she added the veneer word to complete this phrase.
This darling tag came together using the little house die cut also from the Ready Set Go Die Cut pack, a sentiment created with the chipboard Thickers and a couple of dimensional stickers from our Embellishment Add-On Kit. Imagine this cute tag tied around a bottle of wine or some homemade baked goods… together they would make for a perfect housewarming gift.
I hope Cindy’s great projects have inspired you to create something wonderful with your December Hip Kit. :D We will have another collection of amazing projects to share with you tomorrow – so make sure to come check them out. See you soon!!! xo – Kimberly –
