Cuteness Overload | Hip Kit Club | Using an Exclusive Cut File

Thursday 29 July 2021

Hey everyone! Here is a new layout for Hip Kit Club using the June 2021 Kits. You can find the June kits on the website here: Today is Cut File Tuesday so I have used an exclusive cut file, Cuteness Overload, which you can find on the June downloads tab here: This cut file is actually a freebie so you don’t even need to be a subscriber to access it, happy days!

I was also asked today to use three photos. I often do use multiple photos on my layouts so this wasn’t a problem for me. I printed them small and they are of my little boy playing on a tractor at a farm we visited recently.

I really wanted to use the Nuvo Embellishment Mousses that we received in the June kits, one blue and one yellow called Angel Eyes and Lemon Sorbet. I also added another two colours that I have received in previous Color Kits: Aquamarine and another shade of yellow called Custard Cream. I made four strips on my background with the four colours, applied with a spatula and I left the mousse thick and chunky so as to have lots of lovely texture.

I cut the Cuteness Overload cut file in white and cut a backing piece in green checked paper from the June Kits. I mounted my three photos onto black card and added them across the colourful strips, with the backed cut file underneath.

I then embellished around the layout in a colour-on-colour fashion. I picked bits out from the kits in colours that would work with the stripes. I’ve got several chipboard flair by Pinkfresh Studio Happy Blooms, and several bits of ephemera from the HKC exclusives. I also added two exclusive fabric bows.

I finished off by adding black and white striped paper to either side of the layout and I also added machine stitching along these edges too.

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
