July Hip Kit Weekly Challenge – Deer Sighting

Sometimes it’s just nice to turn the cameras and the bright lights off and just create a page with low stress 😉  I enjoy the Hip Kit weekly challenges and love it when I am actually able to participate!  This week the challenge was to create a woven look on your layout.  I started planning the layout before I even had a picture in mind!

Since the move of my scrapbook space, I found a spot for my Silhouette Cameo where I am able to use it whenever I feel like it.  Nothing is blocking it and no need to take it out and find space for it on a table somewhere.  I just love it!  So I have been scoping out sights like The Cut Shoppe and Just Nick and purchasing some of my favorites.  For today’s layout, I purchased two cut files from The Cut Shoppe.  The strip with the word love is the Borderlines cut file and the rest are from the Washi Love cut file. I used both to create strips of paper with shapes cut out that I could back with pattern paper.  From there, I picked my color scheme and started creating.

I used products from my July Hip Kit and I love the way it turned out.  I used the Illustrated Faith Paper from Bella Blvd called Whatever is Lovely to back the cut files.  The main sheet with the sun burst is from Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness collection.  I also used one small piece of Hip Kit paper from the July kit called The Happy Life by Kim Watson.  I used the B side which is black with white messy dots.  That is all the pattern paper I used on this layout!  I did use a piece of white card stock to back the layout.


The embellishments consisted of a chipboard frame from Heidi Swapp; Hip Kit Exclusive puffy letters by Pinkfresh Studio; a wood veneer from Pink Paislee; and several die cut pieces from the Hip Kit exclusive products designed by Kim Watson for the July kits.

I loved playing with my kit and creating this page.  I can’t wait to see what the next challenge is going to be!

Thanks for stopping by!
