We have so many great cut files with each month's Hip Kit Club kits! And since I love cut files so much, I can't resist using them on all of my layouts! Kim Watson created this cut file design and it is one of our Kit Subscriber exclusive cut files. It's a perfect design for adding lots of patterned paper and embellishments!
I wanted to add different patterned papers from the February 2016 Main Kit to make the cut file pop, so I used the cute large polka dot paper from Crate Paper as my background. Once I had all of the spaces on the cut file filled, I placed it in the center of the layout. Then I used a mix of embellishments from the February 2016 Embellishment Kit and the February 2016 Project Life Kit, in the spaces of the cut file.
I used the cute Thickers from Amy Tangerine for my title. I love the contrast from the two Thickers colors! I finished the layout, with some hand stitching along the lines of the cut file, with Black embroidery floss.
This was such a fun layout to put together, especially with Kim's awesome cut file!
