Flip the Sketch! with Elsie Robinson

Hey HKC friends, it’s Elsie here and I’m so happy to be back creating with the Hip Kits once again! For this post I’ve been challenged to create a layout based on this week’s sketch.

Here’s the layout I created:


And here is Irit’s fabulous sketch! Also make sure to join us in the Hip Kit Club group over on Facebook, to share your creations based on this week’s sketch. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!


Sketches are great starting points to jump start your creativity. You obviously don’t have to follow them exactly, so for my page today I flipped the sketch to see what I could come up with. And I just “adore” the result!!


Although the sketch has two photos, I chose to use only one photo and switch the other photo with this mason jar cut file. I backed the cut file with some vellum to create the translucent glass effect of a real mason jar, as well as some Crate Paper patterned paper from the Main Kit.


For the title I used the Pinkfresh Studio Joyful Day puffy titles from the February 2019 Embellishment kit. I love the font and colours of these; they create the prettiest and easiest titles ever!

And since I was flipping the sketch, instead of placing the title below the photo/mason jar, I placed it above.


Also inspired by the sketch, I fussy-cut/punched hearts to create some confetti. I fussy-cut hearts from the Crate Paper La La Love ‘Be Mine’ patterned paper (found in the February 2019 patterned paper add-on kit) and HKC exclusive ‘Oh My Heart’ paper from the Main Kit and arranged them so they were cascading out of the mason jar in an ombre pattern, for a cute and whimsical element!


And finally I fussy-cut some florals, added most of the adorable Crate Paper puffy stickers and used some Pinkfresh Studio die-cuts to finish this page!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’re also inspired to create with this sketch!
