The September AND October Hip Kit and Add-On Kits arrived on my doorstep! Whoohoo!
Here's a little sneak of what's inside these glorious packages...
The September 2013 Hip Kit is full of Fancy Pants Collecting Moments, Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste and Maggie Holmes Flea Market from Crate Paper with a touch of Dear Lizzy & Studio Calico goodness. The September 2013 Add-On Kit features Maggie Holmes' Flea Market chipboard accents. Totally cute.
The October 2013 Hip Kit and Add-On Kits are the ultimate fall kit! A perfect mix of gold & orange with a touch of navy - LOVE the mix of colors in this kit. See those Thickers in the bottom left? Gold glittery goodness.
Here are a few Halloween cards and a layout that I created with the fun October kit...
Seriously love the gold washi in this kit. It adds just the right amount of shine to projects. I also added a bit of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold...one of my favorite mists right now.
On this 'hey bootiful' card, I used my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to add some sequins & dressed up the skeleton sticker with a bow tie made from a couple of little paper triangles and an enamel dot...doesn't he look dapper?
I'm definitely a 'cute' Halloween type...no spooky Halloween stuff for this girl! So check out the cutie pie on this card. Love this sweet little squirrel from the Basic Grey sticker sheet. I used the candy corn sticker and added a bit of glitter for some sparkle.
This layout features a photo of my sis and I, circa 1980ish in our crazy, inflatable costumes. Don't ya love my sister's green pants and how I accessorized with a belt? So stylish! HA!
Instead of using the overlay on top of my photo, I used it as another layer behind the patterned paper. I like how the transparency adds another dimension/texture to the project.
