October Project Life

Good morning! Brenda Smith here with you today with my very first blog post on the HKC blog! I am someone who takes a monthly approach to Project Life. One reason this works so well for me is because I feel the freedom to include as many or as little pictures from an event or singular day. Some months I might end up with only two spreads where other months I have as many as seven or eight. This spread I made today includes several photos from the same day.

I used the October kits to create this Project Life spread. The colors worked perfectly with my pictures and complemented them so well!

I used several embellishments from the DIY Home Ephemera pack in the Main Kit to layer on my photos. I picked two journaling cards from the Project Life Kit with a little bit extra white space to lighten up the page.

I experimented with the transparent effect on this spread. I used some fine glitter as well as some confetti punched from papers in the Paper Add-On Kit. I used a diecut embellishment from the Project Life Kit and stitched it directly onto the page protector.

I created an additional glitter pocket on this page for continuity’s sake. I used several pieces of word art from Kim Watson’s printables that come free with your Hip Kit subscription. I used my Silhouette Cameo print and cut feature to make it really simple.


I used some cardstock from the Cardstock Add-On as well as some papers from the Main Kit to make a few of my own cards. The word art printables layered quite nicely over the DIY Home embellishments.

Until next time!
