Hello, friends! I’m excited to share my new layout featuring the February 2023 Hip Kits. I focused on using the February Main Kit, and I absolutely adore all the exclusives this month! I also used the Slimline Lattice Background Metal Die. I love the texture this adds! A link to the full process video is at the end of this post. How have you started using your February kits yet? We would love to see your projects posted in our HKC Facebook group!! XO – Sarah
I started this layout by using the Slimline Lattice Background Metal Die to cut three colors of patterned paper from the February Main Kit. I trimmed off the edges to give it a more organic, less controlled look! Behind the die cut pieces, I added a subtle pop of color using the Sixteen Candles Catherine Pooler Mini-Inkpad from the February Color Kit.
On top of the die cut pieces, I used the chipboard frames from the February Main Kit to frame a piece of patterned paper from the same kit. I used six of the frames and positioned them around my sweet photo.
I then fussy cut flowers from another patterned paper to create floral clusters above and below the photo, visually traveling diagonally down the page.
I added a few more embellishments from the ephemera set in the main kit, including small flowers, a bird, a couple of butterflies, a phrase piece, and some leaves. I also used one of the vellum pieces of ephemera.
I used the alpha puffy stickers to create my title and added a bit of journaling below that. I added Nuvo drops from the November Color Kit and drops from my stash to embellish the centers of the flowers and around the clusters.
I have all of the details on how I created the layout in a full process video linked below!
Have a beautiful and creative day! XO – Sarah Millerhouse
