Happy Monday, friends! Missy here with a new layout featuring the 2019 May Hip Kits…woo hoo! I was inspired by a recent Jen Schow layout where she scrapped a few photos from this year’s Creativation. I decided to scrap one from last year. That’s me, Hip Kit owner Kimberly and Lorilei Murphy, who was a past DT member. I began with some of the Pinkini Cardstock and the dotted paper from Crate Paper. I tore the cardstock and attached it to the patterned paper. I covered a lot of it with white gesso and then used the stencil from the Color Kit with some modeling paste. I used the Lindy’s Gang Alpine Ice Rose Magical Shaker from the Color Kit along with a few pink sprays from previous kits to add all the color.
I decided to add some of the Afternoon Delight Denim here at the bottom, mixed with a little bit of Shimmerz from an older kit. I used lots of embellishments on the page, including a lot of Crate Paper Chipboard Stickers, Cardstock Stickers, & Clear Stickers as well as some Simple Stories stickers.
I was also inspired by another one of Jen Schow’s layouts where she used a lot of chipboard pieces on one layout. She pieced them together like a puzzle, and I just loved that idea. I did this here on a smaller scale with lots of different images and shapes. I used one of the exclusive fabric bows here as well.
I love the texture from the stencil and modeling paste! I did add extra glue to all the embellishments to make sure they stuck to all of that background goodness. I also added black and yellow splatters once everything was glued down.
These have to be my favorite Thickers font of all time! I mixed and matched upper and lower case letters, and I love how they all fit together perfectly. I over lapped the torn cardstock over “Good”, and I love the dimension here. I also added some fussy cut flowers & leaves from a Dear Lizzy patterned paper.
I love this fun color scheme. It’s definitely different for me, but I love how it really enhances the colors in my photo. And I also adore those peace sign hands!
Here are more of the fussy cut flowers from the Dear Lizzy peach paper. They were really easy to cut out.
Do you use a lot of chipboard? It is pretty thick, so I actually peeled a layer off of each of these pieces before gluing them down.
I went heavy on the journaling on this page, and the left side was perfect for it. I left that side nice and clean and free of any mixed media or embellishments.
I hope this gives you some ideas to try on your next layout. Have you ever tried using a bunch of embellishments like this? It was a lot of fun to make! I do have a process video here, so be sure to check it out!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!
