It’s time to get in the Christmas spirit, with the November 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits!! There are so many fun papers and embellishments included in this month’s Kits, and I couldn’t wait to get started on my first layout! The Holiday Quilt patterned paper from Elle’s Studio, just had to be fussy cut! I used the diamond shapes to create the background look on White cardstock, from the Cardstock Add-On. And I wanted to incorporate the Evalicious Gold Misc. Shapes, so I added them as a second diamond pattern to some of the fussy cut shapes. I used one of the large tags from the American Crafts Decorative Tags pack and layered it behind my photo. To balance out my page, I added the large Studio Calico wood veneer numbers for the date of my photo. And I finished my page by adding some splatters of spray mist!
The November 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits are perfect for creating Christmas cards. I started with a Red cardstock base, from the Cardstock Add-On Kit, and then covered it with the Elle’s Studio Countdown patterned paper. I wanted to add some interest to the background of the card, so I made strips using some of the Elle’s Studio patterned paper, Pebbles patterned paper and American Crafts Glitter Tape. Then for some extra shine, I used the Studio Calico star rub-ons, before adding one of the American Crafts tags, to create my card sentiment.
