I've Taken A Viking to You! | Hip Kit Club | Product Focus May 2021 Kits

Friday 11 June 2021


Hi everyone, here is a new layout for Hip Kit Club using the May 2021 Hip Kits which can be found on the website here: https://www.hipkitclub.net/may-2021. My assignment today was Product Focus and I choose to focus on the Paige Evans Wonders products.

Now I am scrapbooking today about my daughter’s Viking Day at school – there are obviously no Viking papers anywhere in circulation so I did my best to include some Viking elements into this layout. I started with the triangle design which represents the design on their shields: I’m not sure how historically correct this is but it’s the design we made a few weeks ago when we had to make one for a school project! Also the pattern on the paper reminded me of helmets – a bit of a stretch but I think it works!

I decided to layer my photos onto lots of pretty floral ephemera. The Paige Evans Wonders floral ephemera is super pretty with all those big blooms. I pulled out a warm colour scheme of pinks, oranges and red and I added my photos right in the middle of the layout, which I mounted first onto journaling cards from the May Pocket Life kit.

I added lots of little bits from the Wonders Sticker Book: circular phrase stickers, gold foiled mandalas and some more flowers. I also added gold hearts from the puffy stickers too.

For my title I used a Viking pun: ‘I’ve taken a Viking to you’ which I can’t take credit for…I found in via an internet search and apparently it’s a common Valentine’s Card pun! I used alpha stickers from the Wonders sticker book and the ‘to you’ are from the Wonders phrase Thickers. The word Viking came from the Pinkfresh Studio alphabet stickers.

I added machine stitching around the triangles and through the title and finished off with a few white splatters of paint.

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping!
