Two Layouts & a Process Video | Ashley Horton

Hi everyone!!  It’s Ashley and I’m stopping in today to share two layouts with you, using the brand spanking new March 2015 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits!  This Kit is A-MAZ-ING!!  The March Kit included the first PL Kit, and even though I’m not a Project Lifer, this Add-On is perfect for incorporating into your other projects.  I mixed in items from the PL Kit, with the other Kits to create some fun layouts!  First up is my “M & E” layout, which also has a Process Video to go along with it.

I had so much fun with this layout!!  I used a lot of the Crate Paper, Pinkfresh Studio and Elle’s Goodies from the Kits.  And I just knew I had to start out with that wood grain patterned paper!  I also wanted to play with the fun Stencils included in the March Color Kit, so I mixed some of the Dylusions Yellow spray mist with a Heavy Gel Medium and used a spatula to spread the mixture over the Circles Small stencil.

The Handmade paper is another fun pattern from Crate Paper, that is included in the March 2015 Main Kit. I cut out the cute string art letters and used them to create the title on my layout.  To add a little bit more texture and interest to the fussy cut letters, I stitched with some coordinating embroidery floss.  You can check out my newest Process Video, to see how I created the full layout!

Next up is my “Toothless & Toothless” layout!  I fidgeted with this one a lot at the beginning, because I knew I wanted to use the Crate Paper multi-colored triangle patterned paper, but just couldn’t figure out how I wanted it on my layout.  Once I got the two large off-set triangle shapes cut and placed on the background paper, everything fell into place pretty easily.

After I decided on the title, Toothless & Toothless, it gave me the idea to get all of the fun Ampersands included in the kits and use them as part of my title, but also as a design element on my page.

I layered some of the PL cards behind my photo and used the cute Alison Kreft alpha stickers to create my title.  I added some machine stitching, wood veneers and cork embellishments for another layer of texture on my layout.
