SML: Cut it out and Hydrangea Hippo

The weekly challenge at Sew Many Layouts was to create a layout where everything was cut by hand. The design team was also gifted with products from Hydrangea Hippo to play with. If you haven't heard of Hydrangea Hippo, you need to check them out! The kit that they sent was packed with pre-cut papers, plastic and paper doo-dads, ribbon, sequins, and stick pins. I really enjoyed this fun kit. I spread out the material over these two layouts and still had leftovers!

On this first layout about my now five year-old's first sleepover, I used ribbons, sequins, and embellishments from the Hydrangea Hippo kit as well as paper that I handcut from the new Fancy Pants About A Girl line. The SMC image is this snail.

This page I created for my son's seventh birthday. 75% or so of the materials used were Hydrangea Hippo. Birthday Fishes is one of my favorite images from Sew Many!

Stop by the challenge site to see the design team creations and submit your own!

Time is running out to purchase your kit to play along with our upcoming challenge (you won't HAVE to use the kit to participate, but you will get more entries if you do!)...

Love how you collaged all of the pictures in the second layout! Great job!
Thank you for your sweet words. Michael would have been 16 this April 13. It certainly changes a person's entire outlook on life and it seems to become a lot more fragile than it once was. When you are young person, you think you are invincible, and when you have children, you never think of them leaving this world before you.

Glad you enjoyed my blog article - it gave me a lot to ponder over which is why I wanted to share ;)
