Can you believe it has been a week already since I was last here. It is a sure sign summer is here :).
Talking about summer, I have a new page to share with you using the April kit & add-on kits. When designing it, I was inspired by vibrant SUMMER colors, & happy memories of our teen on the beach.
Celebrate Summer with Friends by Kim Watson
When sorting through the pretty papers from the April kit, I fell in love with this piece from Webster’s Pagers, but wanted to use both sides. I really didn’t want to cut up x2 pieces of paper for one page, then had a brainwave…why not cut it on the diagonal & flip the one half over allowing me to get the best of both worlds by sticking it together back into a single piece of paper.
Making the most of the fabulous printed chipboard accents…the double sheet from American Crafts is filled with great sentiments as well as tags, labels & other die-cuts.
I cut my photos into circles to compliment the happy circle vibe that suits the April kit & add-ons so well. Layering a B&W photo over a color photo, adds great visual interest to the layout.
A metal circle die made the mini square card from Webster’s Papers, into a cool circle accent, the perfect addition to my embellishment cluster.
I love how the uber trendy wood veneer sentiment square from Heidi Swapp, gives emphasis to the sentiment card, as well as adds textural dimension to the page.
Come now…tell these alpha stickers & chipboard die-cuts from American Crafts aren’t awesome!!! The variety of fonts, substrates & colors…make for wonderful conversational titles like mine.
Yep…another wonderful week of scrapping with my Hip Kit. I love that there is not much thought needed to put these pages together because Kimberly solves the hard work by putting the perfect mix of papers, accents & embellishments together. Kits definitely take the angst out of product mixing..this April kit & add-on kits is a perfect example.
Happy crafting this weekend friends…I look forward to seeing you next week!
