Hey Hipster’s, it’s Mandy Koeppen here with 2 new projects that I created with our July Hip Kit & Add-On Kits. My first project to share is a layout I created with photos of Mav from a long time ago. You might recognize one of the photos and that’s because I used the wallet size photo on one of my previous layouts. I do scrapbook the same photos multiple times because I usually tell different stories about the same photo.  I printed this photo multiple times because I wanted to include this particular photo of Mav with other photos taken throughout our day. I love the Crate Paper Open Road chipboard frames that are included in our July kits. I love using the frames not just for photos but to create embellishment clusters – like I did in the bottom left corner  of my page.  There are so many great layering embellishments in this monthโ€™s kit like the Crate Paper ephemera, October Afternoon Chipboard stickers and the Teresa Collins Chipboard pieces.  To move the eye around the page I added touches or red with the enamel dots, a chipboard arrow, and a circle with star.

My second project is a simple and I mean simple card that took less than 10 minutes. 2 pattern paper scraps hand cut, 2 die cuts and some adhesive. I was inspired by the colors in the flower from the Open Road ephemera pack.  Then I grabbed a few bits around me that I thought might workโ€ฆ  And they did!  Simple and easy just the way I like it. Have a great day! xo Mandy
