Moodboard Inspired “Precious Cargo” Layout by Jen Schow

Hey Hip Kit fans – Jen Schow, here! It’s the start of a new week and I have some fresh inspiration to get you crafting!

I pulled ideas for this layout from this month’s moodboard, and rather than focusing on the colors, I wanted to focus on the shapes.

I really like the black and white circles and the tufting on the chair and pillow and thought it would be cool to use the sequins that came in the May Embellishment Kit to create a similar look.

I hand-stitched a row of the sequins down the left side of my layout, adding in a few tassels (also from the May Embellishment Kit) near the top. I LOVE the way this looks and it’s a good alternative to sprinkling them around – try lining them up!

I stacked my title and created a nestled grid of embellishments around it.

I added another cluster at the bottom right to balance the layout. This is a fun way to use a bunch of die cuts or stickers and I do it a lot!

Here’s another look at the final layout. I hope you’ll give something like this a try and don’t forget to share your projects in the Hip Kit Facebook Forum so we can see how you’ve been inspired by the moodboard this month!
