December Documented Album- Inside Pages

Happy holidays friends, I hope you are having a fabulous time celebrating this special time of year with family & friends? I know I am & have been taking tons of photos which I have added to my December Documented album! I realise many of you might have completed your albums already but I am hoping mine might still inspire those of you from the Southern Hemisphere who received their kits a little later than our Northern Hemisphere friends & those of you still looking for a few ideas to complete yours.
With things quietening down a little today I am finally be able to share some of my D.D spreads with you. Living in South Africa means we have Christmas in Summer which can be tricky to scrap when using gorgeous, winter inspired  products. I found by working with the kit palettes closely & making the photos black & white, I was able to successfully combine our beach & summer Christmas photos  with products from the December Documented kit & November 2015 kits.
December Documented album by Kim Watson
Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC01I began the first page with the story of Christmas. A deep meaningful explanation of why we believe what we believe. To fit more text into the space allowed without compromising the legibility, I set it up like a magazine article.Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC02
Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC03My next page is an enlarged photo of my fireplace & mantel. I attached the alphas on the outside of the pocket to make sure I could reposition easily if I found they were crooked (which they were LOL).

Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC05This spread includes journal cards, a photo, some cute embellishments. Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC06
Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC07My 4th spread covers x2 subjects with photos. To separate them I included a journaling tag acting like a file divider. The inclusion of red stripes, visually ties both sides together.Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC12
Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC08
Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC09For this spread, I decided to scrap the left side as if it was a mini scrapbook page. Keeping the colors fairly neutral with pops of color from the Santa hats in the photos, ties the page with the mini page on the right side. Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC10
Kim Watson+Dec Documented+HKC11For more spreads please stop by my blog later this week or visit the Hip Kit Club Instagram account, I hope my pages have inspired you to work on your D.D. If you are still looking for a December Documented kit (with or without) album, stop by the Hip Kit Club online store & grab yourself one whilst you still can. Thanks for stopping by…have a super Monday!
Bye for now…:D

Paper Pieced embellishments for Christmas layouts.

Hi friends...Kim Watson here. Can you believe it is the 4 days before Christmas?? I love ‪#‎Christmas‬ time...it has to be one of my most favorite times of the year. I love the message of hope & love that Christmas brings, I love our family traditions, I love that the celebration of this special time brings families all over the world together. Today my page is about exactly that. Remembering the Merry ‪#‎Memories‬ of being together. 

Using the fabulous November kits & FREE ‪#‎cutfiles‬ from JustNick I created this page, papers are from "Oh What Fun" collection I designed for Hip Kits, embellishments are from Pinkfresh StudioBasicGreyMy Mind's Eye & Hip Kits Exclusives.


Do you know that with every monthly kit comes a FREE printable sheet of EXTRA's found under downloads on our website? Check them out at http://www.hipkitclub.net/november-2015-downloads
Merry Memories by Kim Watson

Cutting, snipping & layering circles made these flowers so easy to make. The red flower got x2 holly leaves to finish it off...& the gold flower, a circle of pleated gold washi tape. Both so different & perfect for my page. 
With the Christmas spirit heavy in the air & jingle bells playing in just about every store you walk into…I am excited to share with you, another Christmas layout. For me, this page is a celebration of Christmas, & why this time of year is so special to me & my family!
Share the December Joy by Kim Watson


































To start, I splattered some gorgeous metallic gold mist from Heidi Swapp, onto the white background mimicking falling snow. You can find it in the November Hip Kit Club color kit. Then using some of the Hip Kit Club free November cut files, designed by Ashley Horton, I cut out x4 large patterned paper trees. Pop dots in places, makes them nice & 3D.

So I encourage you to try your hand at paper piecing, it is an eye-catching & effective way to embellish those holiday themed pages. 

Thanks for stopping by!
