Hey there, everyone!  Missy here with my very first blog post as a Hip Kit Design Team member!  I’m SO excited to be here!  The 2015 February Kits are truly gorgeous!  As soon as I saw the papers, I knew I wanted to use this beautiful paper from Webster’s Pages.  I paired it with a paper from We R Memory Keepers and one from American Crafts.  They are all in the Main Kit and Patterned Paper Add-On.  I like to get a little messy on my pages, so I used the Bubblegum Pink Dylusions Ink Spray and the Shell Pink Acrylic Paint Dabber from the Color Add-On to create the pink smudges behind my photo cluster.  I added in a bit of watercolor and gelatos from my stash to finish it off.  The paper layers behind my photo are from the 6×6 paper pad included in the Embellishment Add-On.

Here you can see the layering up close.  I love popping my photos up to give some depth and also so I can tuck embellishments underneath it.  I added one of the flair buttons, a few of the MME die cuts here and added some of the wood veneer and chipboard elements.

That chipboard frame is in the Embellishment Add-On.  I was able to machine stitch through it at the bottom…I love adding those little touches!  I hand cut this Hello cloud from one of the MME die cuts.

I added even more layering here at the bottom…a few wood veneer pieces and a puffy sticker from Evalicious.  I think layering makes such a bold statement!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope this inspires you and gives you some ideas on what you can create with your February Hip Kits!  Have a great day!
