Love You

Scrapbook Layout created for JustNick Studio  - LOVE YOU -

Hi there!
Nathalie with you today bringing a new layout that combines a few of the  Just Nick Studio store's beautiful cut files to create a page all about how much i love my baby (and yes, he is  our doggie!)

To create the background of this page,  the new Funky Floral Background 2 was used.   I isolated just one of the images, and then  resize a few copies of the image to create the cascading flower look of the background. 

To bring color and dimension to the page, I chose to back all teh flowers with papers from Paige Evans Pick Me Up collection, and then fold the emds of the petals, so that they create the illusion of real petals on the page.

To frame the picture in this layout, first i layered a few pieces of paper behind it, and then used the Ring Around My Heart background cut file to create a small cut out (from white cardstock and one of the collection's papers) that could be used as a layer/frame around the picture.

To create the title of this page, I chose to cut the "Love You" sentiment from the  You Make My Heart Smile design from two different papers from the collection.  Then glued them together with an offset, and prop them up with some foam adhesive on the layout.

Just love how easy and and colorful this page turned out.  I love the cascading florals in the background and the color combination of the rest of the cut outs created with the beautiful Just Nick Studio cut files.

Stop by the JustNick store to check these cut files and the many more designs available.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Happiness

Scrapbook Layout created for Citrus Twist Kits  - HELLO HAPPINESS -

Hello everyone!

Nathalie with you today with this month's product highlight.   If you receive the main Scrapbook kit, then you will find a large piece of mini yellow pom pom trim in your Cypress Kit.  Love all these little details that Trina is always adding to the kits, makes them unique and fun.   Well, let's  me shoe you how i combined the pom pom trim with a few elements from the kits to create a fun and super colorful layout.

 Hi there!

To create the colorful background, I pulled the stencil in the mixed media kit (I love this new add on kit!), and used a few shades  of ink (Distress Oxides) to blend over the stencil thus creating the impression of the background.   I made sure the yellow strip sat in the middle of the page,

Once the pictures were aligned on the paper (before gluing them down), i chose to back them each with papers from the Add on kit, and the patterned paper kit, so that the papers matched the colors where the picture will be sitting on the page.  Then glued the pom pom trim around the one sitting in the middle of the page.

Once the pictures were set on the page, I used pieces from the add on kit, embellishment kit and cut apart digital sheet to color block the embellishments around the pictures.

To bring more detail and repetition to the clusters, i chose to use the TN stamp to add a few sentiments were the clusters were placed.

For the title, i chose a piece of ephemera from the add on kit that matched the yellow strip of ink.    Before gluing it down, i made a small cut in the center of the right edge of the page, and folded the corners in to create a small peek-a-boo detail. Here i glued a bit of the yellow pom pom trim, and then backed the space with one of the papers from the Add-on kit that match the color of the pompoms.

Love how this turned out.  First I used multiple pictures (YAY!!), the background is inky and colorful, and the pom pom trim is the perfect detail to complete this page.  Just love this month's Cypress kits!!!

As always let me know if you hace questions on how this came together.   And don't forget to check Citrus Twist Kits July kits , they are awesome!!!

Explorer - Take Your Time

Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  - EXPLORER - TakeYour Time - -

Hi there!

It is the middle of the week, which means it is time for a new project for Scrapbook Nerd.   If you follow my work, then you will  know there has not been a Pinkfresh Studio collection i have not loved. So this time i reached for the Let Your Heart Decide collection to create a page about my ever-growing boy.

First i cut the star wreath (Paige Evans Design)from white cardstock,and  used it to mark the center circle of the cut out onto white cardstock.  Then used a few shades of blue Distress Oxides to create the water color background of the page, making sure to leave the center circle intact.

While the background dried, all the stars were backed using papers from the Let Your Heart Decide collection.  A bit of foam adhesive was added to bring some dimension to the page.

Once the background was dried, it was trimmed and then glued to white cardstock, and the wreath was then secured in place.   A few clusters of ephemera and stickers from the collection, as well as the mix 2, Live More and The case of the Blahs (all from Pinkfresh Studio) were then added along the wreath.

I chose to add the picture to the bottom right corner of the page, and then added a  large cluster at the bottom of the picture, and then used some of the negative center space to add journal lines.

Finally to create the title, i used a combination of the collection stickers, and added them to the top corner of the picture.  A few stamped sentiments using the collection's stamp complete this page:

Totally loving how this page turned out.  The colors of the collection were ideal to bring this everyday picture to live, but mostly to convey the sentiment of having your baby grow up and start a new chapter on his life.

Remember to check for all the materials used in this page at Scrapbook Nerd store and contact me if you have questions on how this came together.

See you all soon!
