Hot Chocolate

Hello! I am back today with a layout that I created using files from the Cutting Cafe! This week we had the choice to work with the following files:

*Hershey Kiss Treat Box
*Hershey Kiss Shaped Card
*Heart Bag

I created a layout using the heart shape that came with the Heart Bag! I love how versatile these files are. You receive so many different elements that give you so much flexibility when creating.

I snapped this photo using my iPhone.  I seem to be using my camera less and less.  My phone is always with me and it is so easy to take pictures with.

I used the hearts from the heart bag file and created this banner.  I changed the sizes and shape of the heart to create variety.  I also used some dimensional adhesive to create some 'pop'!

I also created another banner using pennants.  I cut strips in different widths and added the 'v' cut to one end.  I layered them and added some stickers and some bling.

For my title I mixed stickers, chipboard and a cardstock word that I cut using my silhouette.  I love using different elements when creating a title on my pages.  It really adds interest and makes it a real focal point.

Along with the stickers I added to my layout, I also pierced some holes around the red background piece and added some stitching as a border.

The Cutting Cafe files are a lot of fun to play with......and they are not just for cards and projects.  I hope you will try them out and see what you can create.
