It's time to share a new layout for Hip Kit Club using the June 2016 Hip Kits! I used our June Subscriber cut file on this layout and our June Mood Board for a bit of inspiration. I grabbed the Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness geometric patterned paper to layer behind the light bulb cut file. The diamonds on the Mood Board are a fun geometric shape, and they inspired me to go with the Simple Stories geometric pattern. I also loved the wood wall hanging and used the Hip Kit Club exclusive wood grain paper from the June 2016 Main Kit.
I also thought it would be fun to add some hand stitching with embroidery floss that coordinated with the colors in the Simple Stories paper. After I finished all of my stitching, I placed my photo and pulled out several ephemera pieces from our Hip Kit Club exclusives included in each month's kits.
I wanted to create some clusters with the ephemera pieces and placed them on the layout in a visual triangle. I wanted all of the embellishments and my title to be layered over the light bulb cut file. For the title, I used a mix of the Simple Stories letter stickers and Jillibean Soup Beanboard Alphas. I had fun mixing the cut file with the various ephemera pieces on this layout, and loved the way everything came together!
