December 2012 Hip Kit… 2 fun projects by Kimberly Hutchison…

Hi Everyone!
It is Kimberly here with you today sharing a couple of fun projects that I created with our December 2012 Hip Kit.  There are so many amazing products in our December kit – as you unpack your kit, I think you will find all kinds of inspiration right at your fingertips.  I did! 😀

Vellum and little glassine bags are a really popular trend right now.  On this layout I tucked a glassine bag behind one of the photos on my page.  I used this pocket to add a few extra pictures to my layout.  I also machine stitched an Amy Tangerine journaling card with a “pull here” tab to one of the extra photos.

IMG_1658I added a little bit of “woodgrain” washi tape (from my stash) to my layout – because I thought it needed just a little bit of contrast.  Washi tape is one of those great products that goes an extremely long way.  A few different styles of washi tape are one of those must-haves.  😀IMG_1663When I was adding the title to my page – the pattern on the Amy Tangerine Thickers was just too subtle.  So, I painted them with aqua blue craft paint… but they ended sticking out like a sore thumb.  So, I decided that black alphabet would be the best choice.  I used the Midnight Black October Afternoon Sprinkler Mist (from our October 2012 Embellishment Add-On Kit) to color them.  Since the alphabet were already adhered to my page, I used a paint brush to apply the mist to them. I am really happy with the way they turned out.  😀IMG_1670 
I made this cute Valentines card  using the Seen & Noted Phrase Cards from our Embellishment Add-On Kit.  By adding “Valentine” with the October Afternoon Mini Market Alphabet – I turned the generic “Hello There” pennant banner into a cute Valentine’s Day card.  The grey chevron background paper, was the reverse side of one of the pages from the pad of Phrase Cards.

I hope my projects have inspired you to try something new – like adding a bag or a pocket to one of your layouts or cards.  it is great way to store something special (journaling, extra photos or a gift card).  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Make sure to visit again tomorrow to see a new collection of projects created with our January 2012 Hip Kit. – xo – Kimberly
