Hi friends !!! I’m back with a new layout for the Hip Kit Club design team. For this layout, I focused on products from the Garden Party collection by Maggie Holmes, including the Thickers and Chipboards, included in the Hip Kit Club Embellishments Kit April 2021.
To start with, I first coated a white cardstock with clear Gesso before adding the inks. I add the inks. I am using Nuvo Hybrid ink Pad from the Color Kits April 2021. I start by applying the Lotus Flowers ink from top to bottom and I add Shimmerz Vibez Sweet Heart ink from the previous Color Kit for the shiny side ! I add the Nuvo Mint Macaroon ink on each side of the pink area and I add the Shimmerz Vibez Mustard Seed ink, on each side too, diagonally. I add Shimmerz It’s Mint To Be ink in tone on tone to add shine as well as Shimmerz Magenta ink for dark a little pink and for the shine too !
I’m stacking some crumpled tracing paper, for added texture, and pieces of Heidi Swapp’s pink paper from the main kit behind the photos. I use the same paper for both photos. I distressed the edges of the papers for an aged effect that I like a lot. I want to add another more colorful paper and this Golden Party striped paper is just perfect.
For the title, I chose this big Chipboard that I glue in the center of my page on cardboard to enhance it then I glue the photos. The top one is glued directly on the page and the bottom one, with cardboard to play with the volume. I add Thickers roses and Yellow Chipboards Flowers to either side of the mirrored Title for more harmony. I add the words « Hello » and « Beauty » to the photos. I add striped paper on each side of my page, top right and bottom left for a little color reminder and to fill in these somewhat empty parts and that then allows me to add more flowers and the words « Favorite » and « Be Happy ».
I add also a little black with a Thickers on the title and some hearts. I add the Prima Marketing heart pearls on the edges of my page, they are simply beautiful !!! I add black flower stickers here and there Garden Party always as well as the words « Love This » and « Darling ». I add a nice bird sticker and rosebud stickers after pasting them on a white paper and cut again so that they stand out better in the decoration. I then sew the heart pearls with black thread. And finally, I end with some black splashes of course !
Here is more close-up:
Hope you enjoyed this colorful and flowery page. I love this big title and the pearls add movement to this page which I really like!
