And I’m back. No seriously, I’m super stoked with my PL spread this week. Ever since Eva was born I have felt a little off my game. Which is really weird because prior to her being born I knew my own style in side out. I’m chalking that up to baby brain and sleep deprivation. Any who, this is how I rocked Hip Kits February Kits:
The Left Side in closer detail:
And the Right Side:
Not going to lie – it’s all about Eva again. At 5 weeks old we were only just beginning to hit our stride. It was also the first week I took Eva out of the house by myself.
I…eh…developed a nasty habit of internet shopping on my phone during late night feeds. This week alone saw 2 kikki-k orders and a Go-To skin care order. Turns outs though it wasn’t really a problem. As soon as Eva started feeding less during the night, I shopped less (WIN-WIN!). On a design note this whole layout is structured around a single piece of Pink Paislee Paper.
Funny story – see the ‘Live Fresh’ cut apart. it’s actually hiding a cushion of the exact same colour underneath. We use it all the time to prop the blind out so the metal bar at the bottom doesn’t hit the wall in the breeze, but it’s a much better photo if you don’t see it. In fact that’s my tip for today: Be mindful of the background in your photos, but if you can’t just embellish over the imperfections. Even if it is smack bag in the middle of the photo.
I knocked up these quick filler cards with the b side of that original piece of Pink Paislee paper and the cut apart sheet. I love when you can show opposites in the same layout. WORK HARD to illustrate my hubby putting up Eva’s port-a-cot. I got to give the man props, those things a ‘challenging’ at the best of times. It’s even more so if you have never even seen one before. The PLAY HARD is paired with yet another pic of both of them playing on the floor. Truth be told, I have a million of them. I love photographing the two of them interacting.
This would be a really cute photo, if it was just a photo. Anyone who knows our cat knows she doesn’t have a protective, loving bone in her body. Actually there has been some mention of her being a vessel of unholy evil. Many were worried for bubba’s health. Turns out Mica doesn’t give a rats behind about the little human. She prefers to be in any other room if Eva’s being noisy, but other than that Eva may as well be another piece of furniture. This being a prime example. My mini title comes from a cut apart that said “Ignore the Critics” and some really great alphas in the Amy Tangerine sticker book from the February Hip Kits Project Life Kit.
Remember my story about late night shopping? This instagram tag was cut from the band around my brand new Kikki-k planner arrived in the mail this week. I love up-cycling packing. It like free pretty paper!
And there you have it. I wish I could take all the credit, but February’s Hip Kits were pretty awesome. So until next week my scrappy friends – go forth and create!
