I have a fun layout to share with you today for Hip Kit Club, using the May 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits. And this one is also based on our Sketch challenge for this month. You can create a layout based on our sketch, share it on the Hip Kit Club Facebook page and have the chance to win a grab bag of goodies!
So first up, here is the layout and the Sketch, if you would like to play along!
Sketches are a fun way to create a layout, whether you're using it as is, or as a jumping off point for your layout. If you are stuck for a design, sometimes it's easier to sit down and draw out a sketch for your page or use a Sketch from one of your favorite Sketch sites. When I first started using Sketches, I always stayed close to the Sketch design, until I felt comfortable changing things up, to create unique looks for my pages. For my layout based on this month's Sketch, I used a mix of the Heidi Swapp and Pink Paislee papers, included in the May 2014 Hip Kit. I stayed fairly close to the Sketch, and gave it an individual look with my embellishments and by adding the cut Chevron pieces around the sides of my layout, for some extra energy and motion,
I also have a card to share today, using one of the cute cut files created by our fearless leader, Kimberly!! :) If you would like to use the cut files, just visit the Facebook page to download them.
The sun cut file worked perfectly with the Chipboard Hello Sunshine sentiment from the Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine collection. And since I was working with a card size, and didn't want to cut any of the patterned papers in the May 2014 Hip Kit, I chose a few of the patterns included in the Capture Snippets pad from Basic Grey, to use as my card background.
Our June Hip Kits will be shipping on June 1st, so make sure you visit the Shop, to purchase any of the Kits you would like, before they are sold out!! I am so excited about the new Elle's Studio collection that will be shipping in the June Kits!!
