Hey Hipster’s! Mandy back with a new layout and card that I created with our July 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits…  But there’s a twist and it may have you thinking I’ve seen that before haven’t I?  Well…. Let me explain the story about how this layout came together.  I decided I would be using some scraps from previous projects and I would use this photo of Mo giving me of of his sloppy kisses.  Once I had things pushed around and where I wanted it I started questioning if I had used the photo previously?  I thought perhaps that I had.  Was it another project I sent off recently?  It wasn’t a Hip Kit layout was it?  Nah it couldn’t have been,  Then I uploaded my post and there the photo was on a layout from last month!  Can you say DOH!?!  Goodness, I’m loosing my mind.  Here’s the twist, if you go back and compare this layout to that one it makes a totally different impression on you because they have a totally different look, a different style, a different feel even though both are about my silly little gremlin Mo.  I love how all the little bits and pieces fell into place on this layout like the wordfetti stickers from Theresa Collins,  and her amazing chipboard that was the perfect layer behind my photo.  To make my larger Thicker title pop off the layout a little more, I outlined the alphas with a black pen. The colors of the July kit are totally inspiring with the bright colors along with the neutrals it all brings my black and white photo to life.

Another fun, simple, quick Mandy card. To create this card I fussy cut the speech bubbles from the October Afternoon Snapshot pattern paper and simply layered them onto a couple of coordinating papers that I used for the base of my card.  Then I finished it off by Adding a simple Congrats sentiment & it was done and ready to send off.

Thanks for joining me today. I challenge you to create something with a twist… scrap a photo you’ve already scrapped see where it takes you, or create a project using the same set of products and see what happens.  We would love to see the result… you can share your projects on our Hip Kit Club Facebook page!!!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  Have a good one! xo MK
