March 2013 Hip Kit… Two awesome layouts by Cindy & Bethany…

Happy Thursday!

Have you noticed many manufacturer blogs have lots of projects with custom die-cut words, titles and shapes.  Many of these elements have been cut using a Silhouette or other automated die-cut machine, which can be really quite expensive.  Jillibean Soup created these fabulous Wiseword stickers that give that “Silhouette” look without the expense of having to purchase a costly die cut  machine.  We included a sheet of these stickers in our March 2013 Hip Kitwiseword
Stamping directly onto your layouts is also a really popular trend. I One thing that I have never had much luck with is stamping my title directly onto my page.  I never seem to space the letters correctly, and getting a good impression can be difficult if your layout contains a lot of layering.  The Amy Tangerine – Yes Please – Remarks Alphabet Stickers are translucent and when you add them to your projects they look as if they have been stamped.  Our March 2013 Embellishment Add-On Kit includes a package of these awesome alphabet.  This one package includes 4 different colors of translucent alphabet stickers, with almost 450 stickers in all.   Imagine how many titles and captions you could create with this one set of alphabet stickers…  these will go a really long way.
Remarks Stickers

Cindy Stevens used both the Wiseword stickers and the Yes Please alphabet stickers on her layout.  The “you” and “me” next to the photo are from the Wiseword sticker sheet.  Don’t they look exactly like she cut it out with a Silhouette?  Nope, they are just stickers and they are quicker, easier and a lot less expensive. :D  Cindy used the aqua Yes Please Remarks Alphabet Stickers to create the “Selfie 2013” title.  They look as if they were stamped directly onto her layout.  I adore these stickers!!!IMG_2788

This layout by Bethany Crowell also includes the Yes Please alphabet stickers.  She used the aqua and orange (both from the same package).  One of the things that I like about these alphas is that there are subtle differences in color saturation of each alphabet.  Notice how the “m” is lighter than the “s” and the “r” is darker than the “n”.  Also when you layer them over one another you can see the mixed color, much like you would if you had stamped them with ink.  So cute!!!Happy Place LO
