Hello Fall Layout with Pretty Little Studio Frames | Danielle Menage-Jensen

Hey lovely people!

It’s Danielle here today with my very first blog post for Hip Kit Club. I was challenged to create a layout using the Pretty Little Studios Frames designed by Kim Watson from the fabulous August 2019 kit.

There were so many lovely treats in the August kit, I found it very hard to calm down and just pick a few items to use – haha

I focused my attention on using two of my favourite die cut frames from the Pretty Little Studios Indian Summer collection – aren’t they fab! I knew I wanted to turn one into a shaker pocket and I did this easily enough by using a little bit of plastic packaging to sandwich my sprinkles (I made these using a tiny circle punch and some of the papers from the kit). I used tiny gold stars from my stash for a little sparkle and then raised the frame off the paper using foam pads to add a little dimension and layering to the layout.

The majority of the grid squares I cut from a sheet of Paige Evans Truly Grateful paper as it had this wonderful patchwork of prints just asking to be cut up for a grid layout 🙂

The embellishments were also from the Truly Grateful collection – they came from an ephemera pack bursting with Autumnal delights and also from a corresponding Thickers sticker pack – these are all from the HKC August 2019 Main Kit.

I used the second PLS frame to hold my photo which I took last year when I was having a stroll next to the Thames with a coffee one morning before work. The sun was shining and the leaves were just starting to fall from the trees so I snapped a few pictures with my phone, as us scrapbookers do!

I finished off my layout by incorporating two of my favourite things – stitching and polka dots – I’m a little obsessed 🙂

I decided to stitch the word FALL onto my paper and I did this by printing out the word on my computer then washi taped the word to my 12×12 and used a poking tool to create the holes for my stitching – nice and easy. The ‘hello’ wording I added by using the lovely Pinkfresh Studios puffy alphas from the Office Hours collection.

I cut the polka dots from a sheet of Maggie Holmes paper from the Heritage collection. I decided to add a little cross-stitch to each one to give them a button look and add a little interest.

Then for a little bit of fun, I printing out a list of my favourite things about fall and glued them underneath my title to act as my journaling for the layout.

There we have it, my first layout for Hip Kit Club in the bag – yay!

I hope you like it and I hope that it encourages you to add a little stitching to your next layout and also to give those beautiful frames a go as they really do showcase your photos (they come in gold too – yum).

Until next time – enjoy your day and scrap away 🙂
