I love the look of an angled design, and actually did a similar look on one of my layouts for the Hip Kit Club earlier in the year. I find a diagonal striped paper, helps me get motivated with this type of design, rather than trying it on another type of paper. The Crate Paper Index paper included in our September 2014 Hip Kits, gave me guidelines for placing my photos and elements on the layout. I started my page, by adding the wood veneer word “Explore”, from Studio Calico to the center of the page. Then my photos and embellishments fell into place from there. I also wanted to continue my diagonal lines, so I used some of the awesome Glitter Washi tape, included in our September 2014 Embellishment Kit.
Woodland animals always look adorable on projects, and there are lots of cute ones included in the September 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits! I wanted to use the Deer patterned paper from the Brighton Pier collection from Studio Calico on my card. And of course, it gives you a perfect sentiment to work with…You’re a Deer! I arranged my title and chipboard heart embellishment around the Yellow deer, to add emphasis to the theme of my card. And I stitched through the alpha stickers, for an extra layer of texture! Have a great week! xo Ashley
