Hi, friends! Jana Eubank here with you today. I am always inspired by the bounty of Fall with it’s rich colors and textures. The October 2023 Hip Kits makes adding texture to your projects fun and easy. Watch the process video for this layout below!
I used the Caulk Cardstock (Cardstock Kit) for the base of my layout. If you look closely you can see that I stamped the background with the Leaf Background stamp using white paint before designing my page. A few of the stamped leaves are peeking out along the left side by the journaling.
Whenever I have a little spot to fill, I love to go to the Pocket Life Kit to look for smaller-scale patterns. I used a few of the patterns from the 6×8 papers and element cards to create the banners for the top left corner of my page.
I couldn’t wait to use one of the Oversized Chipboard Titles from the Embellishment Kit. I handstitched this one for additional texture and pizazz!
Creating embellishment clusters is my favorite part of the scrapbooking process. I love to combine materials and textures for added interest. The variety of embellishments included in the Hip Kits always makes that part of the process so much FUN!
I used the wood veneer houses from the Embellishment Kit, then added layers of vellum leaf die-cuts (Main Kit), and leaves and branches cut from white cardstock using two of the die sets released this month (Layered Fall Leaves Die and Frame, Tag, Clipboard & Leaves Die Set).
I filled in any extra spots around my clusters using the floral stamp from the Pocket Life Kit.
To balance the wood texture from my two larger embellishment clusters, I added three wood hearts in a row in the bottom right corner next to the journaling.
Finally, a little sprinkling of the Cape Cod Coral Magicals (October 2023 Color Kit) visually ties everything together in a soft, pretty, subtle way.
What Autumn memories will YOU be scrapbooking with the October 2023 Hip Kits?
