Laughter - August 2017 Hip Kit - Stuck sketches

Hallo there.  I am sharing a layout today using the August 2017 Hip Kit which is made up mostly of Maggie Holmes Carousel.  I used the 1 February 2018 Stuck sketch.  The photo was taken on my birthday in January and it was the perfect opportunity to get a photo of Kobus and I with our precious grandchildren.  Here is the page.

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Maggie Holmes (Carousel), Pink Paislee; Cardstock:  American Craft; Wood Veneer:  Studio Calico; Chipboard title:  Blue Fern Studios; Tag:  Hip Kit project life card; Buttons:  Hip Kit Exclusives; Die Cuts:  Maggie Holmes (Carousel); Embroidery Floss: DMC; Heart Stencil:  Heidi Swapp; Mists:  Prima Colour Bloom (Storm Cloud & Gold Foil); Embossing powder:  Tsukineko (gold); Other:  Nuvo Crystal drops (Ebony black)

The sketch:

Some close ups:
 I misted the Storm Cloud through a stencil onto my white background cardstock...and then I spritzed some Gold Foil Colour Bloom Spray as an added layer.

I love the striped black and white patterned paper and I gutted the center and used only the edges as a frame.  The black and white florals were also fussy cut from a patterned paper.

Our son Wynand pulled all kinds of funny faces to get this reaction from our little ones.  I layered a doily from my stash among the paper layers.

I hand stitched around the edges of the white cardstock with some variegated DMC embroidery floss.  The black enamel dots are Nuvo Crystal drops....and I am still struggling to get my drops perfectly round.

The chipboard title and wood veneer hearts were all heat embossed in gold.  I love to show the dimension and sparkly bits with a photo taken at this angle.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today ♥♥
