Happy & Fun with the February Hip Kits!
I'm here again with a layout featuring the February kits and the exclusive cut file by Kim Watson. Lots of the team and forum members have been creating with the cut file and I was inspired to give it a go too! I took a few photos of my kiddies one hot summer day while they were eating watermelon. I just love this one of my daughter, it just captures her so beautifully and I really wanted to scrapbook it.
When choosing colours from the February kits, I went with a mint, pink, and yellow colour palette with a touch of silver. I backed the cut file in four different sections, using the Pink Paislee and Crate Paper papers within the kit. The colours in my daughters top matched these papers perfectly.
I was totally in love with these fringed hearts by Crate Paper and was happy to get one on a layout where it coordinated beautifully. I stitched around the edge of the die cut too for extra detail.
I created a cluster to the top right of my page. It was a combination of stickers from the Amy Tangerine sticker pack, some chipboard, and finished off with a Dear Lizzy word sticker.
I also created another cluster to the bottom left of my photo. Lots of stickers layered there and finished with a Pink Paislee mirror heart and a couple of word stickers. I stamped the month and year on a piece of scrap card stock and cut it out to stick on top of one of the labels.
I decided to include the word 'fun' from the cut file into my title. I added the Happy mirror word and ampersand die cut from Pink Paislee.
The whole hexagon was adhered to the page with foam tape, but I also adhered the photo layer with foam too. This provides lots of dimension and detail to a page. The page was finished with a couple of enamel dots by Simple Stories.
