I love to create big, bold titles on my layouts as a part of the page design! So the alpha options in our July 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits are right up my alley. Did you know, that you have FIVE alpha options in this month’s Kit??!! The October Afternoon alphas include two styles, you also have Printshop and Typewriter Thickers from American Crafts, and an alpha and labels sticker sheet from Teresa Collins! I mixed letters from each of the alpha sets in with some of the October Afternoon Daily Flash embellishments to create a fun, graphic title on my layout!

Today I did something a little different with my card, by creating a shaped card! I found a cute banner design in the Silhouette store, and cut it on my Cameo. The card was already sized to 4.25×11, so all I needed to do, was fold it in half, once it was cut. I added some layers using one of the Crate Paper Open Road frames and some of the chipboard embellishments from the Teresa Collins chipboard pack. And I love the little chipboard banner pieces…they fit right in, with my banner shaped card!  I hope you like it!  Have a great week & I will see your next Wednesday with more great projects creating with our Hip Kits!  xo – Ashley H –
