Happy Sunday, friends! Have you gotten your 2017 December Hip Kits yet? I got mine a few days ago and couldn’t wait to tear into that box! I created this fun and bright holiday layout using items that aren’t necessarily holiday related. I was inspired by one of Irit’s gorgeous watercolor patterned papers from the Main Kit. I used the stars from one of Kim Watson’s cut files…it was from Day 1 of the 12 Days of Giving cut files. I used some of the Shimmerz from the Color Kit on the background as well as some other Shimmerz from previous Color Kits. I fussy cut “December” from one of the Project Life cards…it was perfect for my title!
I color matched the watercolor to the stars, and I just love the texture and shades of color. I added in a few of the Pinkfresh Puffy Star stickers from the Embellishment Kit and lots of the Vicki Boutin Enamel Dots from the Main Kit.
I used one of the Crate Paper die cut frames here under my photo and another cute Vicki Boutin sticker. I created a cute rainbow of puffy stars right on top of the photo strip.
I stitched through the title and added “Happy” which is part of the Crate Paper Good Vibes Thickers pack in the Main Kit.
This was a blast to create! I hope it gives you some ideas on how to use these kits for a holiday page. Think outside the box. You don’t have to just limit yourself to only red and green if you don’t want to 🙂 Be sure to check out my process video here to see how this all came together!
Have a great week!
