Four ways to add laughter to a project!

Happy Wednesday friends!! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!
Today I am sharing my last May Hip Kits club project with you. I wanted to make sure I have posted all my May projects so I can start posting my projects from the gorgeous June kits & add-ons.
Laugh Everyday by Kim Watson
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @shop.evalicious @pinkpaislee @americancrafts #hipkitclub #scrapbooking #layout Wanting to emphasise the feeling of joy on my layout, as I mentioned in my journaling…I settled on the words “Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha!”, using them in a few ways.
  1. Die-cut them out of vellum paper & then used the negative space paper as a mat under the photo.
  2. The die-cut “Ha-ha’s” were also used as part of secondary titles, scattered around the page.
  3. Using the uber cute striped alphas as seen in the May project life kit, I added more “Ha-ha’s” to the vellum title clusters.
  4. I hand-cut the title ‘Laugh’ in black cardstock, creating a fabulous focal point!
This page has so much ‘Happy’ going on LOL!

Ironically, it is the imperfections in the wobbly letters that make them so cool. So if you are going to try this…relax…sketch them out loosely on the reverse side of the cardstock before-hand & let the scissors do all the work. It is so much fun!!
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @shop.evalicious @pinkpaislee @americancrafts #hipkitclub #scrapbooking #layout After looking at the page again, I am convinced my inked wood veneer sentiment from Evalicious is the best part of the page. The x2 tone colors…make me seriously happy, & placed on top of the black title…what’s not to 💗
