Hello everyone! It’s Jung here, and today I’m sharing a layout I made for sketch Friday! If you’d like to participate, and have a chance to win a $10 gift card to the Hip Kit Club store, make sure you check out our Hip Kit Club Group Facebook page for all the details!
Here is the sketch for this week:
At the beginning of the year, I sort and put away all the layouts that I have made into their respective albums. I have family albums, and albums dedicated to each of my girls. I also take the time to see what layouts I’m missing. One of the holes I needed to fill was a Halloween layout from a few years ago for my middle daughter. She went as Snow White, and some of the colors in the January kits were perfect! I am using the January 2019 Main kit, and the Embellishment kit. I am also using a piece from the January HKC subscriber printable, which you can find on the Hip Kit Club website under the cut file tab.
Like the sketch, I used 2 photos. I added a big title to the left of the larger photo, and I added embellishments around the photos.
I knew I wanted to add some color, so I decided to add 3 paper strips to my layout. I added some machine stitching, and distressed the edges just a little bit. The pops of red and blue coordinate perfectly with my daughter’s costume. I also added a few flicks of ink splatters (I used a shimmerz vibes in frostbite that we got from a previous kit).
I chose the gold leaf die cuts, because they were similar to the ones in the sketch, but for the other embellishments, I choose them based on color, and theme to fit my daughter’s costume. All the blue elements were perfect! I also love the layered heart stickers from Pinkfresh Studio. I wanted to use the SMILE sentiment, but it was on a heart that was the wrong color for my layout, so I simply switched it to a blue heart.
The floral arrangement in a cup is from the January printable available to subscribers; the colors were perfect, and I love that little journaling spot on the teacup! I chose to print and cut with my silhouette machine, but you could totally print it out, then fussy cut!
I really love how this one turned out, and I hope you like it too. I love the pops of color, yet love the white space to the left even more…totally my style!
Do you guys sort through your albums at the beginning of the year? Do you try and fill any holes like I do? I’ve got quite a few holes to fill, but I’m glad I got one done!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day!
