Monthly Planner Spread and Project Life Page

Hello Hip Kit fans! Anita here today to share how I used the July 2016 kits to create a monthly planner spread and a new page for my Project Life album. I love that there are so many versatile products in the Hip Kits each month and they can be used for so many different types of projects. This month I pulled a few items from the Project Life Kit and Embellishment Kit to dress up my monthly planner spread. I use my monthly spread as an overview and quick reference of what’s going on throughout the month so I chose some fun embellishments to make our special events and appointments pop off the page. I used the exclusive washi tape strips from the Project Life Kit to block off days for travel and also used them as decorative elements at the top of the spread. I then used the Amy Tangerine enamel hearts (also from the Project Life Kit) to mark off appointments and events throughout the month. Finally, I added a scalloped die cut as a decoration at the top and several exclusive Hip Kit puffy stickers throughout the calendar. Here’s how it turned out:

I also used the July 2016 Hip Kits to create a new page for my Project Life album. I pulled together some fun photos of me and my husband that were taken earlier this month and decided to use them as the main focus for my page. I then chose one of the exclusive patterned papers from the Paper Kit and cut it up into squares for my pocket page. I also cut and added one of the cards from this month’s Project Life Kit that coordinated well with the rest of the spread. I absolutely LOVE the Project Life High Five chipboard embellishments by American Crafts this month and knew I wanted to use them on this page. So, I used a lot of them in the various pockets and love how they stand out on the page! The result is a fun page that I can’t wait to add to my Project Life album!
