Best little Moments - December Hip Kit

Hi there...I am still creating with my December Hip Kit.  This will be page 8 and there is still a stack of papers and embellishments left...but I need to move onto a new kit.  I have way to much just sitting in my stash.  I used a Just Nick cut file that I changed up.  I substituted the heart for a star and some of the larger circles for smaller stars.  The photo of Kobus and our grandson Lukas was taken in Plettenberg Bay.  I love capturing these precious moments and recording them.

Supply list :  Patterned papers:  Hip Kit Exclusives; Cardstock:  American Craft; Letter stickers:  Amy Tangerine thickers; Clear Stickers;  Pink Paislee (Memorandum); Flair: Hip Kit Exclusives; Acrylic word:  My Minds Eye;  Acrylic stars:  Hip Kit Exclusives; Die cuts:  Hip Kit Exclusives; Embroidery Floss: DMC Variegated; Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress ink (Tumbled glass); Other:  Silhouette Cameo.

Some close ups:
 I coloured the white foam letters with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass distress ink and created an ombre effect with it.

 I added all the acrylic stars that I had left of what was in the kit.

I just adore the effect the hand stitching adds to the page.
