I'm here again today with a new layout and card to share with you all using the April Hip Kits and April cut files.
I really wanted to document my little ones weekly visit to a literacy based playgroup and thought the exclusive April Star cut files would be perfect for this as she is of course a little star! ha. I had taken this picture at the lessons one day in the hope that I would document it, so I am pleased that I have that memory down now for her to reflect on when she is older.
There was a small bit of negative space on the photo in the bottom left corner so I used a combination of the Elle's Studio black alphabet stickers and the bright and fun Pinkfresh Studio yellow alphas to create it.I love to tell our stories through our pages so if you are new to Hip Kits you may not know that one of my favourite things to use is my typewriter. You can sometimes find them at local charity or antique stores, this one was picked up for me from an Antique store at a really good price. It is perfect for adding my story in a quick but effective way. I added a line of stitching through the center of the journaling strips to add detail and also to allow me to bend up the ends a little for a touch of dimension.
How beautiful and bright do those Amy Tangerine Better Together 'goodness' rub on look? I have nearly finished the pack which is a bit of a rarity with me and rub ons. The vertical strips to the left of the page are made up of the exclusive Kim Watson paper and a branding strip from one of the Elle's Studio Little Moments collection papers in the Main Kit.
