Smartie Pants | Bella Blvd

Hi friends!

Well both my boys are officially in big school now :'( sniff sniff They are growing up way too fast and I don't like it much :(
I decided to create a 'Back To School' layout recently using the super cute 'Star Student' collection by Bella Blvd.

I cut out the awesome Windowpane background cut file from Just Nick Studio using my Cameo and white cardstock to help with the separation of the different patterned papers I included on this layout....


 I have been loving using different alphabets in my titles lately...it really helps to use up some stash!

Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today!

Happy creating....

XOXO | Just Nick Studio

Hi there friends!
Today I want to share a love themed layout for the Just Nick Valentine/Love feature we have going on right now on the Just Nick blog!
 
I cut the XOXO background from white cardstock and backed it with some patterned paper to create a main focal point for my layout...I then further embellished my layout by tucking other papers and embellishments in and around the cut file. 
I usually like to incorporate more than 1 cut file from the Just Nick store on my layouts but I this time I thought the XOXO background made a big enough statement!
I love to use up some of my older collections for layouts like this because I think the collection still makes an impact when used in a different design! 
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today! Make sure you head over to the Just Nick store to see all the beautiful love themed cut files and plus many more!
See you next time...happy creating!

Hello You Make Me Smile | Free Spirit | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi friends!
Today I am back with you to share a design team scrapbook layout for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the beautiful 'Free Spirit' collection!
You Make Me SmileFor this layout, I firstly cut a large heart with white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo, I then pushed small holes right around the outside of the heart using my paper piercer.....I then took some dark pink embroidery thread and hand stitched a border around the heart to help outline the cut out heart more! 
You Make Me Smile DetailI then backed the heart with the beautiful Free Spirit Word Jumble paper...this works really well when working with busy papers! I then added my photo and embellished the rest of my layout!  
You Make Me Smile Detail 2Thank you so much for joining me on my blog today! I hope you are creating with your Cocoa Vanilla collections!
Happy creating...see you next time!

#RAD | So Rad | Simple Stories

Hi there friends!

HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY to my fellow Aussies!

Today I want to share a layout created using the super cool 'So Rad' collection by Simple Stories....I have been loving their products lately and have using them on almost all my layouts!

I also designed my own cut file to go with this layout....sometimes you just have an idea about how you want your layout to be...this is definitely one of those layouts!

I just love boy collections for obvious reasons...I love how they can be everyday and travel collections too.

Added in a little bit of journalling to tell a bit of the story!
That flair button is from Flutterby Designs..go and check them out!

On the Nice List | Just Nick Studio

Hi there everyone!
 Today I am sharing my first design team layout for Just Nick Studio using the amazing Just Nick cut filesI don't know about you but I am playing a bit of catch up! I nearly always scrapbook Christmas photos in January! 
I chose to use the Triangle Geo Lace background to carry on the triangle shape design already printed on the patterned paper...I used the Pinkfresh Studio Christmas Wishes collection to create this layout..
I created the word 'Nice' by using the Handcut Letters cut file...I deleted the letters I didn't need, moved the letters together to spell 'Nice' so they overlapped a little and then welded them together in Silhouette Studio.
Thank you so much for joining me on my blog today!

Design Team Introduction | Just Nick Studio

Hi everyone!

I am so excited to be joining the Just Nick team! I am being introduced as a new designer on the Just Nick Studio blog today!

Nicole asked us to create a layout about ourselves for our introduction blog post....I created 2 layouts and I really liked both of them.....I couldn't decide what layout to use so both are in my intro post on the Just Nick blog!!! I am sharing 1 of the 2 layouts with you today, come back in a few days to see the other one!

I used the pretty Flutter collection by Fancy Pants Designs for this layout... 


The Just Nick Studio cut files used on this layout:



After I cut the Positive 1 background from white cardstock, I decided that I liked some of the white positives kept, while backing every second one with a different patterned paper!
