Crush on You

The Hip Kit Club has a pretty cool ice cream cone cut file for July!  I supersized the cut file and cut it from white smooth carstock on my silhouette.  I backed the cone with the fabulous paper made by Design Team member Irit Landgraf.  I knew I wanted to use photos of Hannah having her very first ice cream cone while we were on vacation in Prince Edward Island at Anne of Green Gables!  She was completely smitten with her ice cream cone!  I also used the floral cut files provided by Zinia Amoirdou for Hip Kit Club.  I added watercolors to the plain white in all the ice cream colors!  While I was painting the flowers I spattered the left over paint onto the background paper.  I then added bits from the HKC wood pieces and a couple Amy Tangerine clear stickers (the big dots on the background).  For my title I used the chipboard Love & xoxo from Simple Stories I had in my stash, and a clip from Maggie Holmes Carousel.

Flamingo’s are everywhere these days in scrap products!  I thought it would be fun to try a layout featuring one!  I made a cut file of a flamingo and the large title in photoshop to cut on my silhouette, then painted all the cutouts using my Prima Tropical Confections and my cheapy watercolor palette.  On the background I used some clear gesso and then scraped Martha Stewart paint and added some Shimmerz Well Blue Me Down splatters!  To embellish I fussy cut flowers from a Dear Lizzy paper I got in the July Hip Kit!  They were the perfect addition.  I finished the title with Thickers called Charming.

So fun to make this page!  Love how it turned out!
