Hello and happy Tuesday, crafty friends! There are so many lovely alpha sets, word phrase ephemera, and text bits in the July 2016 Hip Kits that I just had to create a long title for this layout that I have to share with you today!
I used one of the July cut files designed by Ashley Horton, cut it out from the B side of the “Ombre Sky” patterned paper, and layered it on top of the “Art Class” patterned paper from The Happy Life collection and then positioned my photo to the left side of my page.
Next, I added some Bella Blvd Ciao Chip phrases, available in the July 2016 Main Kit, for part of my long title and then placed a mix of HKC exclusive puffy alpha stickers and the American Crafts foam Thickers, available in the July 2016 Embellishment Kit, for the rest of it.
To make positioning different alphas in a long title easier, I used a clear ruler and placed the letter stickers on it so I could hold it over where I thought I might want them to go before I committed to sticking them on my page. This is a very helpful trick for me!
After I was satisfied with my title placement, I layered several punched circles from some of the journaling cards, available in the July 2016 Project Life Kit, and placed them on my page so I could make embellishment clusters out of them. The ephemera phrases from the HKC exclusive “The Happy Life” collection came in handy to add extra color and depth to my page.
I also added several of the Happy Life and Freckled Fawn puffy stickers to my page so they would pop and give off a more whimsical vibe.
I hope I’ve inspired you to use lots of alphas and text phrases on your next layout! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
