Hey Hip Kit fans!  It’s Ashley, and I’m on the Blog today with a new layout, using the February 2016 Hip Kit with one of the February cut files!  I used the cut file that I designed for this month, to create a tone on tone look, with pops of color from the patterned papers included in the February 2016 Main Kit and the February 2016 Paper Add-On.

I cut the Yakety Yak cut file from White cardstock, included in the February 2016 Cardstock Add-On.  Then I backed each of the talk bubbles with different patterned papers from the kit.  When I placed the cut file on the White cardstock background, I titled it, instead of adhering it straight.  I like the effect the tilt adds to the layout design.  I also added my photo and title on a tilt to follow the line of the cut file.

I used a mix of embellishments from the February 2016 Embellishment Kit and the February 2016 Project Life Kit.  I didn’t want to cover a lot of the die cut background, so I clustered embellishments around the photo and title.  Then I added the fun phrase stickers from Dear Lizzy, included in the Embellishment Kit, to the spaces in between the cut file.  I brought in more color, with the Simple Stories enamel dots, and placed them at the beginning at each of the sticker phrases.
