Sometimes when I am starting a layout, there is a paper or embellishment that catches my eye, and I decide to design my layout around it. The Crate Paper Full Heart patterned paper in the October 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits, caught my eye and gave me an idea for this layout. I cut out the I Love Everything About This card from the paper and designed the rest of my page around it. I liked that I could use it to create a long title, by adding the burlap Thickers and the Teresa Collins alpha stickers. And the Gold Thickers from the Story pack and cork embellishments from Elle’s Studio, fit right in with the look I wanted to create on my page.
I love that the October 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits, offers so much variety for your projects. You can create Fall/Autumn pages, everyday pages, and even Halloween pages or projects! I created a fun Halloween card using some of the scrap pieces left over from my other projects. I tore the edges of my patterned paper and added them to the dark Gray cardstock from the Cardstock Add-On Kit. Then I added embellishments from the American Crafts Haunted Hollow collection, to another piece of scrap paper, as the focus of my card. And I added a bit of messy machine stitching to finish my card!
