Hello everyone. Christin here today to share with you my first layout with the May 2016 kits. Today was one of the days where I ended up covering up most of what I had done on this background and I ended up mostly lots of drops – which actually looks like small bubbles. The top blue color is the Shimmerz Vibez Jeni B Bleu color from the May 2016 Color Kit.
This kit this months offers lots of color contrast which I love. I have mixed lots of different tones of aqua/turquoise against the dark blue/black and just added yellow and orange I had already made most of the background before I got the kit and I had just nailed the color combo – the Shimmerz painted was the only color I added after I got the kit.
There are lots of fun exclusives in this kit designed by Kimberly Hutchison or Kit Watson. Here you can see that I have used pieces from the ephemera pack – the title and a few other pieces. (both in the main kit) Also in the May 2016 Embellishment kit you will find cool exclusives – some cool puffy stickers. You can see that I used a few of them around the picture and some blue skies. All these exclusives go so well with the other papers from Jillibean and the frames from Simple Stories.
I used one of the PL cards underneath one of the frames to add my journaling. Here you also see some exclusive puffy stickers
I have an old Silhouette – I think I got it in 2009 but I am still able to use it to cut the montly cut files, but never with big pieces. This time I used one of the frames designed by Kim Watson. I love mixing different shapes so everything isn’t square. That is also why I cut the edges off the yellow exclusive paper. I always want to create layers to add dimension. I do that by mixing shapes, color and materials.
I can’t wait to see more of your May kit projects over on in the Hip Kit Club FB forum. Have a nice weekend.
