It’s cut file week on the Hip Kit Club blog. Hi, friends! I’m Jana Eubank. Today I’m using the October 2023 Hip Kits, along with the October Spiderweb Cut File, to create a layout of my daughter dressing up with her college roommates for a Costume Party. It’s the perfect way to illustrate that you don’t always have to reach for orange and black to document the Halloween holiday. Come and see!
The ‘Slice of Heaven’ patterned paper with its star pattern made the perfect backdrop for my photos. The blue picked up the blue of my daughter’s ‘Dorothy’ costume, and the stars add a Halloween vibe. Combined with the Spiderweb Cut File (cut using the Clementine cardstock), I was ready to get this page design rocking!
I fussy-cut several pumpkins from the ‘Harvest Vibes’ paper then accented them with vellum leaves, cardstock stickers, and cardstock die-cuts from the Main Kit. The Pearls from the Embellishment kit look like bubbles from a witch’s cauldron.
I am in LOVE with the white puffy alphas in the Main Kit this month. They are a fantastic size and are a great way to add a large, custom title to your page.
I’m waiting on some journaling from my daughter. Once she sends it to me I will place it on the layered tags (Cardstock Stickers) in the upper-right corner of this page. I used a phrase sticker, cardstock sticker, stamped label, and more pearls to embellish the tags.
I added in additional texture to the fussy-cut pumpkins at the bottom of the page by tucking in a couple of the felt acorn stickers from the Embellishment Kit.
I cut apart a few of the chipboard frames and tucked the pieces around the photos to balance the colors, add texture, and provide a landing spot for my embellishment clusters.
I really love the soft and pretty vibe of this Halloween page. It just goes to show you that you don’t always have to use orange and black to document Halloween.
This week is Thanksgiving in the U.S.A. and this October kit from Hip Kit Club will be perfect to document photos of your friends and family enjoying a delicious dinner together. Be sure to take lots of photos!
Thanks for coming by!
