Hi everyone, this is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) and here is a new layout for using the December 2020 Hip Kits which can be found on the Hip Kit Club website here. I’m also playing along with this week’s Challenge which is a Scraplift challenge. We have a layout made by Missy Whidden to scraplift – how fun! There is a process video of this layout at the end of this blog post. You can play along with the challenges over on the Hip Kit Club Group on Facebook.
Missy’s layout is on dark cardstock. It looks like she has applied gesso over the top and it has created a cross-hatch effect. This inspired me to use the beautiful blue checked paper in the December Main kit. I trimmed it down to approximately 10×10″, distressed the edges and stuck it to a sheet of white cardstock. I then machine stitched through all the lines on the paper with silver thread – it makes it so pretty and sparkly!
I cut a circle using a mental die and added white pom pom trim around the outside with some pretty white tulle too. I then began creating the photo cluster and the cluster at the bottom of the layout like on Missy’s layout. For these I used fussy cut snowflakes, as well as ephemera flowers and icons. I also added white puffy stickers.
I added my title using the silver alphabet stickers from the Main kit which I then stitched through with my sewing machine.
I finished off with my journaling and some white paint splatters, because Missy had used them on her layout!
Thank you so much for joining me today. I had so much fun creating this layout! Don’t forget to play along with this week’s challenge over on the Hip Kit Club Group on Facebook – there’s a prize on offer. Enjoy the process video which you can find below.
