Spooky and Sweet | Main Kit Only By Tazhiana Gordon

Hi Hip Kit friends, Tazhiana here with a fall themed layout using the October Main Kit. The Main Kit is full of Paige Evans’ Whimsical papers, as well as papers from Jen Hadfield and embellishments from the Whimsical line and Vicki Boutin’s Field Notes. There’s tons in this kit, and the colors work perfectly for an autumn themed layout.

I started with cutting out the exclusive cutfile on the blue, coral and yellow paper because that that paper really felt like fall to me. I then traced out the overall shape on a yellow Jen Hadfield paper and cut that heart out of the center of the paper. I then matted that yellow paper on white card stock and added machine stitching around the heart shape using blue thread as well as a border using white thread. After this, I attached my wreath to the background and began working on my photo cluster.

I used a variety of papers from the Main Kit to mat my photos. The story I am telling today is of the time my husband and I went to Boo At The Zoo at the Bronx Zoo. We’re a couple of big kids so we had the best time seeing all the animals as well as all the Halloween added bits – there was even a haunted house! We found this stump that was carved with a scary face and it was the perfect photo opportunity, and the story I chose to tell for this layout. After matting my photos, I pulled out the Vicki Boutin Field Notes ephemera pack and used a few pieces from the pack to create the photo cluster. I also added some cardstock stickers from the Whimsical sticker sheet in coordinating colors to flesh out my embellishing.

Finally, I chose to use two different alphabets for the title – the exclusive coral puffy alphabet stickers and the Goldenrod chipboard phrase stickers – and I think Spooky and Sweet was the perfect title for this page. A few chipboard hearts completed the page and I’m loving the muted and darker colors of this page when compared to the rainbow of my previous layout using these kits.

I hope you found inspiration here, and as always, keep it crafty friends. See you around.
