Hey Hipster’s, Mandy Koeppen here with 2 new projects to share with you today.  The first project to share is this 12×12 layout created with the awesome Shimelle pattern paper from our brand new August Hip Kit.  I love all the Shimelle goodies in this kit.  The colors & images are so inspiring and had my creative juices flowing as soon as I opened my package. This particular paper I wanted to use really badly but it had the big initials running down on the left hand side of it.  So, what was I going to do with it?  TIP:  cover that portion up with a 4″x10″ coordinating paper from the kit of course! After I figured that part out, the only other thing that I stumbled with was figuring out where to place my title.  I knew I wanted the title in the upper left side but it wasn’t working quite right.  So, I decided to use a mix of the Thicker letters and the Shimelle mini alpha stickers found in our Main Kit.  Ta-Da!!!  It totally worked for me. A few tickers layered with some paper strips and the layout was done. I always say it but I’m going to say it again…I love a simple and quick layout!

Simple and quick can be said about my second project… this card  that I created with some scraps from my layout along with a a  item mix of goodies from our August Kit & Main Embellishment Add-On Kit. I love these Shimelle Cork Stickers!  The camera was so cute I had to use it!  The Freckled Fawn “FUN” wood veneer word was a great option to finish off my sentiment.  

So for this week here are a few tips:

  • Simple & Quick is good.
  • Cover it up if you can’t use it or don’t like it.
  • Mix those fonts up on your titles and sentiments
  • Always always have fun!

Thanks for joining me today! See you next week with another collection of projects featuring our August Hip Kits!  Have a great weekend!  xo~MK
