January 2013 Hip Kit… A sweet layout by Kimberly Hutchison…

Hi Everyone!
I hope you all had a great weekend.  I spent yesterday scrapbooking… which was a nice treat for me.  Today, I have a fun layout to share with you that I created with our fabulous January 2013 Hip Kit.  I had some photos of my two youngest daughters and Mackenzie’s best friend, Megan at a Sounder’s soccer game.  I think this layout is a perfect example that you don’t need soccer themed products to work with soccer photos to make an amazing page.  Check it out…  (the photos of my layout were taken with my phone… so they aren’t quite as clear as they would be had I have taken them with my SLR – but this was a lot quicker) haha…

Sister LOAdding vellum to your projects is a really popular trend right now.  I love the Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic gold polka dot vellum that was included in our January Embellishment Add-On Kit.  It adds a little pattern, and some shine and also gives a more subdued foundation for my photos.  It was super fun to work with.Sister LO Detail 2

Machine stitching is always a great way to add detail to your projects.  I hand cut a few hearts from the Fourteen – Be Mine paper.  Then I layered two of them and machine stitched down the middle.  I adhered the bottom heart to the paper and folded the top heart up a bit.  This is an inexpensive way to create a dimensional embellishment that will give texture to your layout.Sisters detail 1I scraped the edge of the striped border with the blade of my scissors to give it a rough edge.  Then I layered it over a strip of aqua paper and machine stitched to my layout.  Then I lifted the edges up a bit to give some extra dimension and weight to the left side of my page.
Sisters Detail 3I like the brightness that a white cardstock background gives my layouts.  However, sometimes it is a bit to stark… so this time I lightly misted the upper right and lower left corners with Dewy Mister Huey Mist.  Then I create some splatters to give some more distinct drops.  All in all I was really happy with the way it all came together.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope my page has inspired you to create a page or two of your own with one of your Hip Kits.  Tomorrow I will have another project to share with you… so make sure to check back.  Have a scrappy day!!!  xo – Kimberly –
