Love You More

Happy Friday friends, here in Canada we are getting ready for our Canada day long weekend, looking forward to the long weekend festivities!

Today I'm sharing another layout created with the June Hip Kit. Ever since this kit landed on my doorstep last week I've been happily creating. I love the Crate Paper frames included in this kit, I built the layers around this frame.  


There are lots of embellishments in this kit, which I love, especially for layering. After building my paper base, I layered chipboard accents, diecut pieces and enamel dots, this created a fun little embellishment cluster beside the picture. This is actually one of my favourite things to do when I'm creating a layout. 

I've used these speech bubbles in the past but I had some leftover and had to use them again. One of the add on kit features Jillibean Soup Chilled Cucumber stamp and Heidi Swapp mist. I used the mist as paint, dipping a paint brush in the mist I applied a thin layer to the hearts of the speech bubble. The mist dried very quickly and created a soft muted effect on the hearts. The other speech bubble was just the perfect size for one of the Jillibean Soup stamp, it was meant to be, love it when that happens.
