Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique with you today. Last week my son and husband were celebrating their respective birthdays and I decided to scrap some of the photos I took straight away. The "Confetti Wishes" collection from Pink Paislee had just arrived on my doorstep and was still lying on my desk so all I had to do was print the photos and choose one of the many awesome cut files from the JustNick store. As I love to use background cut files I concentrated on those and in the end decided on the "Heart is Full Background" cut file.
This is the layout I made:
and this is the "Heart is Full Background" cut file I used. Isn't is awesome?!
When I had my Silhouette ready to start cutting this cut file I was in doubt whether to cut it from white cardstock and fill all the hearts separately with patterned paper or cut it from a multi colored paper. I decided on this last option and added two large squares of patterned paper behind the cut file so the background wouldn't be so terribly white. I really love how this turned out.
Here are a few close-ups:
I love adding a bit of journaling, but often forget about it. For this layout I remembered to leave a bit of room for my text, which I had already typed and printed beforehand.
There are so many lovely die-cuts in this Pink Paislee collection but I didn't want to cover up the entire cut file and made sure not to add too many.
Like always I wanted to add a bit of stitching to my page and used my sewing machine to stitch the outer circle of the cut file.
Although this page has a lot of "pinks" in it for a boys layout I'm very happy with the result.
Wishing you a wonderful and creative week!
