Hi friend.  Have you tried the fabulous Hip Kit Exclusive dies?  They are so versatile and will really stretch your supplies again and again.  This week, I am creating using the August Sketch challenge as my starting point.

It’s my first layout using the fabulous July kits – I am so excited about the colours, images and of course the papers in this month’s kits.

I was inspired to use the Alpha die to create a really long title and combine it with the gorgeous puffy title stickers in the July kit.

I die-cut thick white card (it was actually waste packaging from a paper pad).  This would give me the thickness I wanted for my title.

After sticking down the letters, taking care to space them evenly, I painted the area using the fabulous Magicals powder (Dip a Toe Teal) from the July Color kit.  This colour is vibrant and very eye catching! Simply mix a tiny amount of powder (a little goes a very long way) with water.  Test on scrap card to check your consistency.

I have to confess, these vellum leaves in the July Embellishment kit are my favourite!  Look at the amazing colours and designs.  I curled mine slightly with a bone folder to give them dimension.

I added die-cut flowers to the cluster with a little tangled thread behind.

I balanced the design by adding some chipboard and ephemera to the top right of my photo. You can watch the full process on our YouTube channel.

You can take part in the August Sketch Challenge for a chance to win $25 to spend in the store.  Simply create your layout and upload to the post in the Facebook group before August 31st.  We would love to see what you create!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
