April/May 2013 Hip Kit… 3 amazing projects by Laura O’Donnell…

Happy Sunday!
I hope you are having a great weekend!  :D  Today I want to share a projects created by our talented guest designer, Laura O’Donnell.  She created her card and both layouts using the products in our fabulous April/May 2013 Hip KitAdd-On Kits.  I am sure that you will feel inspired to get a little crafty after seeing her projects!!!

Let me just tell you that Laura creates the most amazing Project Life layouts.  This first layout captures and documents the little moments from her Mother’s Day Weekend – just like a project life spread would but without the structure.  I love all the Instagram photos!!!  Laura said she was really impressed with the Crate Paper Pier Die Cuts.  There were lots different shapes and details – which made them really easy to incorporate into her projects.  The cluster of die cuts in the upper left hand corner of her page is  gives great texture and dimension!Hip2Bmothersday2pg

On this next layout she wanted to include the Echo Park Rainbow paper.  She said she loved the pattern and wanted it to be the show on her page.  She takes her son to the park almost every day, and always manages to take a few pictures.  So rather than creating a “fun day at the park” layout, she decided to do have the focus of her page be about her favorite Iphone photo apps.  What a great idea!!!Hip2Bpictapgo
For the “Hey” card, Laura applied embossing ink with a foam dauber to create a swish.  Then she sprinkled the Zing! embossing powder (from our April/May Color Add-On Kit) over the top of the wet ink.  After removing the excess powder, she heat embossed the swish.  This created a unique spot  to add  her sentiment and a few other embellishments.  Hip2Bheycard
