Beautiful Friends / Hip Kit Club

Hello again, friends!  I'm back today to share another new layout for Hip Kit Club featuring the 2017 January Hip Kits.  I decided to created some vertical strips on my background using a few patterned papers.  I went with the beautiful pink and soft orange watercolor paper from Pink Paislee Moonstruck and combined it with two of the exclusive papers.  I love the contrast in the two colors.  I covered a lot of the area with white gesso and then came in with some of the teal Heidi Swapp Texture Paste.  I watered it down a bit and used the packaging technique and then came in with the Carta Bella Houndstooth stencil to create some texture.  I also added in a little bit of pink and some gold Color Shine.

I went with a diagonal design.  I layered up some Project Life cards & a little bit of patterned paper behind my photo.  I fussy cut those pretty flowers from another exclusive paper and layered them along with some of the exclusive die cut flowers.  I also added several of the One Canoe Two butterfly rub-ons.

I love these beautiful colors!  So so so pretty.  The HAPPY letters are included in the exclusive die cuts, and I stitched through them.  I typed my journaling this time and glued it to one of the One Canoe Two label stickers.  I added one of the One Canoe Two metal clips and an exclusive wood veneer.

Here you can see all the texture from the paste and stencil.  I added some foam under the label here to give it some depth.  I also added some tangled thread, an exclusive phrase cut apart piece and a Moonstruck puffy sticker.

I love all the dimension going on here.  This is the perfect place for adding tangled thread :)  Here you can also see where I machine stitched along the edges of the vertical paper strips.

More lovely layers going on here...I love the dimension on the butterflies!  Instead of rubbing them right onto the background, I adhered them to white cardstock first and then fussy cut them out.  This allowed me to move them around and add a dot of glue to the center so I could bend up the wings.

I combined a Moonstruck die cut word here with a watercolor banner for my title.  I added the Studio Calico puffy alpha stickers here to complete it.  FRIENDS fit perfectly on it!

Here's my process video for this layout if you'd like to check it out.  I hope you are inspired!

Thank you for visiting me, and have a great day!
