Welcome to another fun-filled scrapbooking adventure with our guest designer Nicole. Today, we're diving into the delightful world of the May 2023 Hip Kits. So, grab your scissors, your favorite cardstock, and let's get crafting!
Nicole kicks things off with a technique that's all the rage - fussy cutting! She's working with the mango and lime cardstock pages and the stroll in the meadow page from the main kit. But wait, there's a twist! She switches gears and goes for the mango and berry colors instead, creating a vibrant layout featuring the Let's Find Sunshine page.
Our crafty guide then shares her secret to adding texture to her artwork - fringing! And guess what? You don't need any fancy fringe scissors for this. Just your regular pair will do. She also distresses the edges before adding the fringe for that extra oomph.
Next up, Nicole shows us how to create a diamond shape on the background and add dimension with foam squares. She even shares how she recovered from a little mishap with her paint strip. It's all part of the process, right?
Nicole then moves on to the fun part - decorating! She decides to include three clusters of flowers and uses wood veneer floral stickers, chipboard stickers, and die cuts to enhance the clusters. She also adds black heart stickers and uses dimensional foam squares to give the page depth.
In the final stages, Nicole discusses finding the perfect titles for their pages. She mentions using sentiment stickers with foil, but has trouble reading them. No worries, though, she decides to use silver glitter foam instead of puffy stickers. She also likes to add splatters with different mediums and handwrite her journaling, including XOXO on her pages.
So, there you have it, folks! A quick and easy way to add texture and dimension to your scrapbooking projects. Don't forget to subscribe to the Hip Kit Club's YouTube channel for more crafty inspiration. And as always, happy crafting!
