Hello everyone! Christina here with a new layout using the September 2018 Main Kit. When I say the beautiful Pinkfresh Studio paper with the gorgeous wreath, I knew straight away I would fussy cut it and embellish it with all kinds of flowers and hand drawn and also fussy cut leaves.
The big photo from our trip to Switzerland this September came in very handy – I printed it in 8″ x 6″, so that the wreath would cover it more or less completely.
To make the 2 wanderers – my husband and a dear friend of us – stand out (so that they don’t get “lost” on the layout), I used a die cut frame from the Indigo Hills ephemera pack.
I then drew some leaves with a pencil on white paper (you can also find tons of templates on the internet and use those instead), fussy cut and used them as stencils on some of the Maggie Holmes papers included in the kit.
I also cut some of the beautiful flowers from the Indigo Hills 2 “Glen” paper and glued them on top of the wreath. If you want even more dimension on your layouts, use foam dots instead of glue!
The title is always the hardest part for me! That’s why I mostly prefer phrase stickers. But for this layout, I wanted to use the Gold Foil Puffy Alphabet Stickers from the kit. So I finally came up with the idea to combine “wander” and “wonderful” to WANDERFUL.
I love how the layout came together and how the soft coloured wreath and the golden title and accents pop on the blue Bazzill cardstock!
So, that’s it for today, my crafty friends. I hope you’re having as much fun with your Hip Kit Club September Kit as I have!
