Summer's here, and what better way to capture those sun-soaked memories than with a splashy pool layout? 🌊 Dive in with Morag as she takes on the August mood board challenge, crafting a vibrant layout using the July kits. She's all about that sunburst paper for those pool pics and can't resist adding a wave effect with blue paper. 🌞 And oh, the stitching! It's all about the texture, baby. 🧵
There you are, staring at your supplies. They’re beautiful, but you’re unsure about how to get going on your next scrapbook page. Give a mood board challenge a try! Hi, friends! I'm Jana Eubank. Today I’m sharing my latest layout using the May Mood Board Challenge from the Hip Kit Club Facebook Group. Want to play along? Add your layout to the May Mood Board challenge album by June 2nd for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Hip Kit Club store!
How do you use a mood board? Well, that is up to you! Look at the photos on the mood board and use the colors, shapes, and textures to guide your design decisions. Watch the video below, where I will explain how I used the April 2023 Hip Kits and this mood board to create the ‘Mermaid Tale’ layout shown below.
I began this page with the top three photos of the mood board as inspiration. I loved the purple and blue colors mixed with many florals spilling out of the baskets and buckets around the bicycle. I decided to create a column of photos surrounded by lots of soft, pretty flowers.
Before assembling my layout, I used the two photos in the bottom-right corner of the mood board as inspiration to add tonal stamping to the background paper. Here you can see where I used the Coffee Stain stamp and the Mini Postage Stamp Texture stamp (April Embellishment Kit) on the purple patterned paper.
I stacked my photos and then used florals created with the October 2022 Color Kit along with black and white floral die-cuts (April Main Kit) and clear stickers (April Embellishment Kit) to spill out from behind. (NOTE: The stamped florals were left over from my last Hip Kit Club layout – watch the video HERE if you’d like to see how I made these flowers using inks, embossing ink, and drips of water & paint.)
I also added pieces of flowers along the top-right edge of the page. The flower centers are dotted with the Lemon Twist Nuvo Drops from the April 2023 Color Kit.
To the right of my photos column, I used a 6×4 Journal Card from the April Pocket Life Kit to house my title and journaling. I was inspired by fellow design team member, Sophie Delorme, to add the Pixie Wings Nuvo Glacier Paste (April Color Kit) to the navy chipboard letters (April Main Kit) for a shimmery, mermaid feel. I also dabbed the Glacier Paste onto several of the flowers.
Below the journaling I added a section of scalloped patterned paper because it reminded me of fish scales, tying into the theme of my page.
All the elements together create a layout that makes you feel like you’re swimming through an underwater seascape. I love it!
