Hi everyone!!! I’m back today with a new layout for the Hip Kit Club DT featuring the March 2022 kits. I decided to make a layout with a large photo.
To start I glue the photo on a white cardstock and as the photo is not big enough to reach the edges, I will add Gesso all around so that it blends into the cardstock which will be prettier at the end.
I then cut out the exclusive March 2022 «You Are Incredible » cut file from a white cardstock. I decide to recut the cut file to be able to position the « Incredible » in the center of my page and the « You » on top, in the center too. I then cut this cut file another time from a Fresh Bloom 6×8 Paper Pad pattern paper by Simple Stories from the Pocket Life Kit that I also recut.
And I glue the cut files on top of each other offset to bring dimension and to bring out the words with a white edge. After adding 3D foam underneath, I stick the « You » in the center of my photo at the bottom and the « Incredible » below. I then insert between the two the word « ARE » that I made with the help of the letters of the cutout and the yellow/orange and red pattern papers of the Fresh Bloom 6×8 Paper Pad.
I then cut out several flowers from the « Just Between Us » pattern paper from HKC’s exclusive « Happy Days With You » collection. I add the flowers around the cut file, and I also add a sun Chipboard Stickers Full Bloom Simple Stories from the Main Kit. I add a few more small flowers here and there.
I cut out a banner of the Fresh Bloom 6×8 Paper Pad that I distress to decorate the top of my photo. I make an accumulation of small things around this banner. I added a Cloud and a rainbow Chipboard Stickers, to complete the sentence of the banner I added a Foam Stickers « Bee Happy », a Die Cuts yellow phrase, a red sticker of the Stickers Book all from the Full Bloom collection by Simple Stories of the Main and Embellishment kits. I add all around some Bees Chipboard Stickers and a small bird.
To complete the bottom of my page, I add under the cut file a Foam Stickers sentence then some more flowers and Stickers Sentences from the Stickers Book that I glue with 3D foam to bring volume. And I add another little bee. I also add clouds from the Full Bloom collection to my photo with 3D foam.
And finally, I finish this layout with splashes of black paint to harmonize everything and to bring contrast.
