Fussy Cutting and Using Punches| Kylie Kingham.

Hello friends, it’s Kylie with you all today sharing a new layout I have created. My assignment for today’s creation was to include some punches, fussy cutting as well as use the September Mood Board, (created by the lovely Elsie) as inspiration.






What really appealed to me from this mood board were the flowers, the color palette and the cotton threads. I knew I wanted to incorporate these elements into my page design. I have used the August 2019 Main Kit, as well as items from the Pocket Life Kit, Embellishment Kit and the Cardstock Kit.


I decided to use a white card stock base since I knew there would be lots of color. A Hexagon punch from my stash was used for creating my background. I really love creating backgrounds using different shapes and am amazed how effective it looks for such a simple technique.I chose to use paper 14 of the Truly Grateful collection from the Main Kit as it had lots of lovely, colorful squares to punch. I distressed the edges a little of each hexagon before adhering them to my page with foam tape.This is so they sat up a little from the background, giving a nice dimension.




Two “groups” of hexagons were added to the top and lower side of my page and I adhered two square photos at opposite angles over the top.




Using the lovely ‘Truly Grateful’ die cuts from the embellishment kit, I layered many of them around my photos and throughout the centre of my background. Some were added with foam tape to help build dimension and interest. For my titles I carefully fussy cut some letters from paper 13 of the Truly Grateful collection in the Main Kit.There were already some fab words to choose from but I decided to created my own titles.




I couldn’t help myself and had to add some lovely clusters of cotton from my stash amongst the die cuts.






Once completed I was really happy with how all the various layers came together…






Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have enjoyed seeing my latest layout. Don’t forget to check out all the wonderful kits via the Hip Kit Club website.
