It’s Ashley Horton here with you today!

Today I am sharing a fun layout and card that I created with our January 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits

I loved the diagonal pattern on the Crate Paper teal wood grain paper in our January kit.  It gave me the idea to step out of my comfort zone, and design my photos and title on a diagonal.  Once my photos were in place, I added some strips of washi tape patterned paper above and below them.  The color of the Cherish Thickers worked perfectly for the Frozen theme of my page.  I also used my CAMEO to cut a few snowflakes to add a frosty feel to my page.  Once my page was finished, I took some White acrylic paint and used my finger to smudge it around the photo and title area, to help blend some of the background color out.

The Crate Paper Stand Outs included in our January Color Add-On Kit, make awesome embellishments.  I thought the Be Mine Stand Out would be perfect for the front of a card.  I gently removed the bottom layer of the Stand Out, so it only included the pleated piece and sentiment.  I added a die cut view master behind the Stand Out, which I cut from the Kraft cardstock included in the our main kit.  And I thought it would be fun to finish it off, with one of the positive shaped hearts adhered to a tooth pick and tucked behind the Stand Out.
