Darling, You're Beautiful Layout for June Hip Kit Club


Sunday, June 24, 2018

Here is my second guest designer layout for the June Hip Kit Club!
Check out the process video so you can see how this layout came to be:

I started by trimming patterned paper strips to 1", 1.25", 1.5", 1.75", and 2" x 3" and then folded the strips in half. I also trimmed cardstock strips and made folded pieces of the floral transparency paper. This is a great technique to use up scraps! To make the paper strips stay folded permanently I machine stitched along the top edge of each one using white thread.
Next I grabbed my chosen background paper from the kit - a light pink plaid, and started placing the paper pieces to find an arrangement I liked. I decided to have more of them at the top and layer them down towards the bottom. I took a picture with my phone and then referred back to the photo to adhere everything in place. I used a bone folder and scraped it down the page to flatten the folds a bit more.
Then I added a pair of photos of cute Jane at the bottom and tucked in embellishments under and around and by the paper strips and the photos. I placed the periwinkle "darling, you're beautiful" sentiment at the top and mirrored it with a "beautiful" puffy sticker at the bottom. I wrote my journaling with a black pen to finish it up!
I hope you have found a technique to inspire you and will check out the incredible Hip Kit Club! They provide so much inspiration every month from the design team members in a wide array of styles so you're sure to find something that clicks with you!
