January 2013 Hip Kit… A Christmas page by Kimberly Hutchison…

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a layout that I created using a Christmas photo along with our fabulous January Hip Kit.  I know that many of you might not think that the products in our January kit would be a good fit for Christmas photos… but it is!!!  It is not so much about patterns and icons – as it is about colors and a feel.

Nana and GirlsI used a ruler and my craft knife to cut the aqua chevrons out of the Crate Paper Fourteen Sparks paper.  Then I machine stitched them to my background paper.  I cut them down a bit… so that they didn’t take over my page.  I really like the subtle texture they give to the foundation of my layout. 
Nana LO Detail 3The gold polka dot vellum from our January Embellishment Add-On Kit is one of my favorite products from this month’s collection.  I love the way it looks when you layer if over other papers, and I love the shine that the metallic polka dots have without having a sparkle to them.  The gold worked well with my Christmas photo – because it gave my page a festive feel.
Nana LO Detail 5The aqua & white washi tape at the very top and bottom of my layout was from my stash.  I needed something with a strong repetitive pattern to give weight to the top of my page.  Having a handful of different colors and patterns of washi tape in your stash – comes in really handy. 

I hope my page has inspired you to try to scrap a holiday themed photo using “non-holiday” related products in one of your Hip Kits.  If you do…  you can share your layout with us on by posting in on our Facebook page.  We would love to see what you create!!!  We will have more awesome projects created with our January Hip Kit to share with you this weekend… so make sure to check back.  Have a scrappy day!  xo – Kimberly –
