Happy Monday, friends! Missy here, and I have a very bright and tropical layout to share today. I used the incredibly stunning 2017 July Hip Kits. They make it so easy to create gorgeous Summer layouts! I couldn’t be more excited about that 🙂 For this page, I started with the big pineapple Project Life card from the Project Life Kit. I let it dictate where my photo would go to begin my design process. Since the pineapple was already cut in half, I let it run off the right side of the page and overlapped it onto my photo. The rest of the page stemmed from that placement. I used one of the June exclusive cut files…that gorgeous hibiscus flower and leaves. I cut it on white cardstock, coated it with gesso, and then used the Prima Watercolor Confections from the May Color Kit to jazz it up. I used one of the Dear Lizzy papers as my background (available in the Main Kit and Paper Kit). I added white gesso to the center area and then went to town with embellishing.
I used so many of the beautiful exclusives to embellish with. I used some of the epoxy stickers from the Main Kit, and puffy stickers and chipboard stickers from the Embellishment Kit. I also used some of the Amy Tangerine die cuts, including two of the pineapples. I used a few of the Echo Park brads as well.
Flamingos!! I can’t get enough of them lately. This one is included on the exclusive chipboard stickers, and so is that blue banner piece. I love the contrast of these gorgeous colors against those pineapples.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about dimension. It’s so easy to create it to get more of a 3D look on your pages. The big die cut curled up once it dried, and that is perfect for leaves. I also added some adhesive foam under it for more lift.
I used some Project Life cards as layers under the photo. I wish I had more of this gorgeous pineapple! It’s just gorgeous. I added in two exclusive chipboard speech bubbles here as well. I can’t get over how perfectly everything matches!
Here’s the bottom area below the photo. I added in some tangled thread, a puffy sticker, a clear Echo Park epoxy sticker, some puffy dots and a chipboard flower.
This is truly one of my favorite Hip Kit layouts! These kits make it impossible to create a bad page. Everything is just so pretty, and it all coordinates so well. I hope you are inspired by it! I have a process video if you’d like to watch this page in action.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a fantastic week!
