February 2013 Hip Kit… 2 awesome projects by Cindy Stevens…

Happy Thursday!

Boy, where has this week gone?  :)  Life here at the Hutchison house has been really busy.  As many of you already know – we celebrate our three daughters’ birthdays between March 19th & April 1st.  Yep, that is three birthdays in 12 days.  It is insane!!!  haha…  On March 19th our middle daughter turned 17, on Sunday our oldest daughter turned 20 and on Monday, April 1st our youngest daughter turned 15.  I will have some pages to share in the upcoming weeks with photos from each of their special days – which were a lot of fun.

Today I have an awesome layout and card created by Cindy Stevens using our February Hip Kit to share with you.  Cindy does an amazing job at clustering her embellishments and adding layers and lots of little details to her projects.  I love that about these two pieces.

There are so many little elements in the upper right hand corner of her layout.  Sometimes the smallest things make all the difference.  If you look closely you can see the little coral chevron tab at the top, and the staples that attach it and the “this is the life” label sticker.  The threaded button and stitching around the heart and along the edge of the white cardstock give nice texture to her page.IMG_2259I am not sure if she machine stitched around the heart… but if so, she did an amazing job.  There is no way I could machine stitch that precisely around the edge of a shape like that.  I would have to go around twice to have it look like I intentionally wanted it to look messy.  Great job, Cin!!!
IMG_2262I love how Cindy repeated the circles on her layout, subtly with the white on white punched circles, the “Happy Day” circle sticker and the star flair button.  😀IMG_2264
This is an awesome card!!!  I think it is a lot more difficult to make cards for men, and this is an excellent example of a card that could easily be given to a man.  :D  I love the contrast between the woodgrain, black and white and the bright yellow hearts.  The string tied around the top give it that perfect finishing touch.  So cute!!!IMG_2276
