Today, we're diving into a fantastic YouTube video by the talented Nicole Santos for the Hip Kit Club. She's the guest designer for June, and boy, does she have some crafty magic to share with us! 🎨✂️🖌️
Nicole takes us on a creative journey using the May 2023 Hip Kit Club kits, with a little sprinkle of the April 2023 kits. She starts off with no specific plan, letting her creativity guide her. She fussy cuts little circles from a page in the April kit, and then decides to use a blue part of the reverse side of that page. But wait! Her process takes her somewhere else, and she ends up using a banana-colored cardstock from the kit to create a sunburst effect on her page. 🌞🌞🌞
Nicole then distresses the little circles and bends up the edges, arranging them in a linear pattern across the page. She also brings in some white clouds for added dimension. 🌤️🌤️🌤️
Life is Sweet 🍭🍭🍭
Nicole's photo of her and her mom on Mother's Day is the centerpiece of her layout. She mats it with mango cardstock from the kit and adds a title that says "Life is Sweet." 🍭🍭🍭
She also brings in chipboard frames from the April kit, fabric flowers, and fussy cut leaves. She adds some splatters of Creamsicle orange from the May 2023 Color Kit, and voila! A beautiful, vibrant layout is born! 🌺🌺🌺
