Hello everyone! I’m super excited to share with you my first project as a Hip Kit Club design team member. I already had the chance to play around with the super cute August kit, and I loved how different the layouts I crated with it so far look. But for my first post I thought I’d share with you a typical “me” layout.
Typical “me” means that I always like to fussy cut elements from patterned papers, and mix them up with embellishments like ephemera, stickers and chipboard accents.
By combining and layering them you create a lot of dimension on your layout. For example as you can see in the picture below, I glued some fussy cut leaves under the flower chipboard, and also some fussy cut flowers on top of it.
What I also love doing, is embellishing embellishments. Sounds funny, I know! What I mean is, in this layout I embellished the Cuckoo clock chipboard with some stars from the gold star decorative trim in the August 2018 Project Life Kit.
(Random fact: actually I don’t live far from the Black Forrest where the Cuckoo clocks come from!)
And I thought, since this is my first project as a design team member, why not make use of that pretty wrapping paper the kit came in, and incorporate it on the layout as well?
So, that’s it for today, my crafty friends. I hope I could inspire and encourage you to make use of all the gorgeous embellishments that the kits come with, and layer them like there’s no tomorrow!
