I know it’s been a while since I wrote blog post, I took a long break from scrapbook to take care of myself and just do other stuff. I think we all need to take a break sometimes, we live in a world today where you’re expected to work fast and just do the same thing over and over again without thinking (at least that’s how I see it). I was in this crazy routine of work, scrap, sleep, eat, hangout sometimes but didn’t get actually to breath a little bit and just do nothing. So that’s what I did most this time- just nothing and exploring different stuff that interested me. After this break, I was able to come back and scrap and just create again in my happy place 🙂
So after that long intro to why I was gone… it’s time to share a fun layout I made using my Hip kits- because I didn’t scrap for a long time, I have so many scrap book stuff to play with (yup, I didn’t cancel my subscription while I was on break) and it was overwhelming (in a good way :)) once I started opening the kits.
In this layout, I used the exclusive cut file from the Hip kit store, I love the heart wreath and thought it will be great for my autumn picture. I cut it on orange cardstock (which is a risky choice, since I don’t like orange) and tried to make it work in my layout. I used scraps of pattern paper I had to back the cutfile and drew on top of the cutfile using my Gelli roll pens to add more detail.
For my background, I used this beautiful watercolor with florals from Pinkfresh Studio.
I framed my picture using one of the frames pack from Pinkfresh Studio. I added 3 washi strips from “Willow” collection by Crate paper and stitched them to the background using my sewing machine.
And last thing I did was to embellish! (my favourite part)- I used mostly embellishments from the “Willow” collection by Crate paper. I used the foam stickers and carstock stickers- I really love the colors and texture they add to the layout.
Here is my layout 🙂
Thanks so much for joining me today!
