It's time to share a new layout and card today, for Hip Kit Club, using the August 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits! I think I could just get this kit over and over every month and be completely happy!! There are so many amazing papers and embellishments in this one, and I loved using all of them!
You can't have an awesome piece of paper like the Studio Calico "Three Hour Tour" pattern and not do a vacation or travel layout! I wanted to use some of the photos from a cruise that we went on, back in 2007. This is also the first time I have used 5 photos on a layout in a while!! I wanted my title area to stand out, so I mixed the Globe from Shimelle's collection with the Shimelle letter stickers and American Crafts Thickers. This gave me the idea of where to place my photos on the page. After I had my photos where I wanted them, I used some of the Crate Paper ephemera pieces and enamel dots to embellish around my photos.
The Gold chevron Washi Tape in the August 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits, is perfect for adding a pop to your projects. I used the Washi Tape to create my card base, by adding strips over the White cardstock. I continued the Gold theme, by using products from Crate Paper and My Mind's Eye on my card.
