So I've been playing with my May Hip Kits still and loving the versatility of them. I have made girly layouts, boy layouts, cards and now a layout about one of my fur babies.
I always go about starting my layouts in different ways, this time I had chose the pictures first. With having that it made it way easier to choose the colors I wanted to use. The Simple Stories, Life in color frame from the Embellishment kit was actually the 1st thing from the kits that I chose. I just thought it was to cute not to use and I liked that it repeated love across the little tag on it.
After that I grabbed a few pieces of American crafts white cardstock from the cardstock kit. I ran one threw my Silhouette and used a cutfile and did a white on white background. I did go back and add some of the HKC exclusive paper, Medowbrook, Starlit Sprinkle from the Main kit created by Kim Watson.
After I got my background settled I grabbed the American crafts Butter cardstock from the cardstock kit and punched a few strips to go along side the Jillibean Soup, Healthy Hello soup, Jar of Jambo paper to go behind the pictures of my pup, to give it more of a central place to sit. After I got my pictures settled I grabbed the HKC exclusive ephemera pack and placed a few pieces around the layout, I punched out a few tabs and realized I didnt have any more red any where on the layout so I reached into my stash and grabbed my Little B red washi and used it in a few places and I loved the little pops it gave.
To finish my layout I needed my title and I love the HKC exclusive puffy alphas in this kit, and the color was perfect so I grabbed them and added my title, I did a little bit of journaling about my goofy pup, this is something I'm trying to do more. Journaling on my layouts is hard for me because Im not big on my handwriting and I always feel like Im going to mess a layout up with it, so I use to always journal on the back, but I want to have things hand written by me for my kits when they get older, so Im trying lol. But after that I added a few enamel dots from the Echo Park Summer Party and that was it for this layout.
I hope you liked this layout, I know I have a few more projects I'll be sharing that were made with this kit, One is even a mothers day gift I made for my mom this year.
