Hip Kit Club October 2015 - Hello Cake


Hey everyone,
Today I am here to share a layout inspired by this stunning Mood Board! I just loved the gold dipped pumpkin, the dimensional look of the leaves, the feathers in the dream catcher and the colour combo of gold and teal in the bottom left corner. So basically, they are what I worked off. 


Here is what I created:


This photo is from my little mans cake smash I did with him. Loved all the pics and the teal colours of the papers work so well with the cake. 

I adore the teal/black/gold combinations that could be gathered from the kits. I created using all the kits and only added a few things from my stash; some whipped spackle, a couple of chippy hearts, a doily, a peg and some stamps and ink. 


The title was created using the Thickers packs in the main kit. I am totally in love with both packs equally and love the look of the titles when they are combined. 

Again I added my typewritten journalling. I always try and tell the stories on the page. I know that if I do not document them they will be lost. I also added a heart from the Pink Paislee ephemera (shhh, it is actually covering a major ink boo boo!) and then a punched the three arrows from a scrap of gold I had.  

For the vertical strip down the side of the paper I used two of the patterned papers in the main and then a scrap of another to punch a binding edge punch. In the bottom right, that binding edge is the negative waste piece, but I decided it would look cute as a layer there. I also added a touch of the washi from the Jen Hadfield book. 

The title/journal cluster was finished with some watercolours using the pencils in the colour add on. Oh my gosh, I am in love with how easy these are to use. I think I am a little addicted and already am planning to use them on the next page on my desk. 


The feathers are a cut file exclusive to Hip Kits. I cut them out and embossed the ends. I also cut out the little Fox from a 3x4" journal card in the Project Life kit. He is so cute and had that touch of teal. The leaf clip was just too cute not to add. 


The photo layer was a combination of the patterned papers, a 4x6" project life card, a doily and some punched pieces to add further layers. 

I added a gold dipped peg from my stash and some Pink Paislee embellishments. I also added a touch of black mist and stamping. 

The exclusive mask in the colour kit is just perfect for this page. I adore using masks with whipped spackle, it gives such a beautiful texture. 


Now these Prima pencils! Oh my, don't think I could love them anymore. It is amazing how easy these are to use and for a neat mixed media girl like me, they have stolen my heart 

Thanks for visiting my blog today, I hope this has inspired you to create using the Mood Board for October :)
