Hello Hip Kit Club friends!
It’s Jung here, and today I’m sharing my first layout using the November 2018 Hip kits. I am using the Main Kit, Project Life Kit, Embellishment Kit, Color Kit and Cardstock Kit. For this project, I was challenged to use Hip Kit Club exclusive products, which was easy to do since this month’s kits are jam packed with exclusives. A lot of the products have to do with home sweet home, so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to make a layout about our new home.
I started off by using some of the products in the color kit. I used one of the Heidi Swapp cardstock stencils and some white embossing paste to add some texture to the cardstock. Then I used the Shimmerz vibes in Deep Blue Sea & creameez in Good Ol’ Summer Time to add some splatter to the background.
Once dry, I started pulling exclusive elements that I thought I would want to use on my layout. I cut a few strips of pattern paper (the blue paid & light blue with white leaves paper is an HKC exclusive), and then machine stitched them towards the center of my layout. I had originally planned to just put my photo on a large pattern paper mat, but then I decided to use an exclusive Project Life card. I couldn’t quite get the layout right, until I decided to have 2 large pattern paper squares…one for the photo and one for the journaling card.
Next, I just used various exclusives to embellish the squares. I used HKC exclusives Home Sweet Home ephemera, Home Sweet Home puffy stickers, leaf acetate, and wood veneer stickers.
To finish off my title, I used a Jen Hadfield matte gold phrase sticker that says home, and the HKC exclusive mini puffy alpha stickers to spell out Home Sweet Home.
I am really happy with how my layout turned out, and I hope I’ve inspired you to get crafty! Don’t forget to check out all the great exclusives in the November 2018 Hip Kits.
Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!
