Weekly sketch layout – Choose Happy| Raquel Bowman

Hey everyone, it’s Raquel here with you today sharing a new layout that was created using the November kits and the new weekly sketch. Here is the layout that I created: IMG_5109raquel-hipkit-4thjan

Incase you missed the sketch for this week, here it is:


I was inspired by the stripes running along the background however a mixed media stripe isn’t something I would normally add to my layout. So I chose to use the Heidi Swapp paper from the Main kit as to coincide with this background. Instead of stripes running vertically down my page I used a strip of card stock and and one of patterned paper. I then used the placement of the photos and embellishments from the sketch to create a layout based on it, in my style. I adore how soft these November kits are, don’t you agree?!


The Heidi Swapp envelopes are the perfect addition to a page where you have the ability to add hidden journaling. These envelopes were an addition to the November Embellishment kits. I also layered ephemera under and around the photo.


I did add to this layout a small touch of Hip Kit exclusive embellishments, these were the wood veneer and also the puffy stickers. They added a nice finishing touch.


I added subtle stitching to the edges of both the white card stock and the sheet of patterned paper.


The embellishment clusters that I added to the page were mainly comprised again of Heidi Swapp ephemera and stickers. Don’t you just love when companies make embellishments that make creating layouts so easy and enjoyable?!?


Thanks so much for stopping by the Hip Kit blog today. I hope you will visit the Facebook group and join in the Weekly Sketch.
