I'm back today with another layout I created with the June Hip Kit. I really wanted to use this bold black and white paper as my background but that is very out of norm for me, I usually prefer pale coloured background. I very much enjoyed the challenge, sometimes it's good to step out the box.

I'm a sucker for tabs, I was a happy girl when I saw the days of the week tabs in the Basic Grey pack of diecuts. They were my starting point for this layout. As well I wanted to add dimension to the background paper, I achieved this by adding strips of black paper which I stitched on and then raised the edges. 

The title was cut with my Cameo and the font used is called SPPurkage, I've had this font for many years and used to print my title  with my home printer, then I'd trimmed out the word with an exacto knife, anyone else remembers doing this? Now that I have a Cameo it's so much easier! I applied some SU blue liquid glue which is ideal for glitter, then I sprinkled the American Crafts glitter (available in the add on kit) on my title. Just like that I have a glittery title. 

What have you done lately to step out of your comfort zone?!

Love it, it totally makes me smile seeing that sweet photo of you and your gorgeous little girlie. I have a post coming up tomorrow, where I share a little stepping out of my box too. I have not 1, not 2, not 3 but 5 photos on one page *shock*, lol. It's good to step out from time to time, I believe it's how we grow and expand on our style. Have a great day Mel!
