Crazy Eyes / Hip Kit Club

Happy Monday, friends!  I'm back today to share another layout for Hip Kit Club using the 2016 December Hip Kits.  I have been eyeing that beautiful plus sign paper from Maggie Holmes, and I decided to fussy cut a bunch of them out to use as a background design element.  I created a fun heart shape, and I love how it turned out!  I went over the exclusive background paper with some white gesso and then added some Shimmerz.  I combined some Thickers for my title and embellished with some die cuts from Pink Paislee Take Me Away by Paige Evans.  I also used some of those cute little Crate Paper tassels to create a banner.

This photo makes me laugh :D  Paige was chasing me around the kitchen with her arms stretched out like a zombie and I had to snap some pics and take a video.  She's such a funny kid!

After I created the heart and glued down all the plus signs, I machine stitched around the perimeter with silver metallic thread.  I also went through some of the plus signs.  I added the cute Pink Paislee banner and some of the yellow sequins.  I also sprinkled some of the dark silver glitter dots around the page from the Thicker sheet.

Here's another look at the background.  I love how the colors turned out!  I layered a few patterned papers and some of the lilac cardstock behind my photo as well as some tissue paper.

To jazz up the white "crazy" I used a silver metallic pen and lightly created a shadow.  I used my finger to smudge it.  It worked really well on the foam.

I added a few more Pink Paislee pieces here...a fun bright pink tag and one of the epoxy paper clips.  Those are so fun to add to a page!

Finally, here's a closer look at the tassel banner.  I just threaded some pink thread through the holes and arranged it under the photo.  I glued it all down and that's it.  Super easy and cute banner!  My journaling fit nicely right under it.

I really enjoyed making this...I hope you get some inspiration from it!  Here's my process video if you'd like to check it out.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
