Our March Hip Kit… Adding Whimsy to Your Projects…

Hi Y’all!  It is Ashley Horton here with you today sharing a fun layout and card that I created with our amazing March 2014 Hip Kits & Add-On Kits.  I love to use patterned paper for the backgrounds of my layouts.  If they seem to be a little overwhelming, it’s fun to find a pattern you can cut down to a smaller dose.   The Crate Paper Styleboard Blissful paper included in our March main kit, was one of my favorites.  I used it as a full background on one of my layouts, but I wanted to use it in a more toned down version on this page.   I cut two of the chevron sections and placed them on my white cardstock background, which gave me some pattern, without having a full patterned paper background.  I can’t resist hand stitching, so I stitched along every other line of the chevron pattern.  I also added some stamping using our March Stamp Add-On Kit…I mixed the arrow, camera, and little abstract asterisk, which gave a fun flow to my page.

Did you know you can use the alphas included in your March 2014 Hip Kit & Add-Ons to make a big impact on your cards?  For this card, I wanted to keep with a clean & simple design using the lemon image from the Dear Lizzy  Bits included in our March Color Add-On Kit.   The Studio Calico Wanderlust Alpha Stickers were a perfect match to the yellow and teal on the die cut lemon, and they were just the right size to spell out the first part of my sentiment.  The silver Cecily Thickers were perfect for the last part of my sentiment.  I was able to overlap the “E” and the “N” in “lemons” by using small pop dots behind them – this gave my card a fun whimsical feel.  I would love to see the cards you have created using your March Hip Kits!  Just share them on our Facebook page!
