"Love You" - Mari Clarke July 07, 2017 07:00

Hi Everyone,

It's Mari Clarke here and I am so excited to share my first project for the justNick Design Team!  I chose an older photo for my project since I had a specific and nostalgiac subject to journal about for this one.

There is not a direct link to the theme of the photo/journaling and the images in the cut files I chose.  I think this is a good example of using images you love to create a design that just looks fun and very pleasing to the eye.

I sized the Aztec Print background cut file to fit the 12x12 background for my layout. I cut the file using some heavy, white, shimmery cardstock from Carta Bella. I adhered the cut file to some patterned paper to create the background for the layout. I love the dimension this cut file gives this layout!  I lifted up the top and bottom corners of the triangles in the Aztec Print to create even more dimension.

I decided to embellish the layout with cacti using the Cactus Jack cut file; I thought that complemented the Aztec file nicely! I cut the file using some gold glitter paper...I have used gold accents on the layout for a little sparkle and shine! I used the hearts from the cactus file as little accent pieces around the layout.


I finished off the layout with a few die cuts from Jen Hadfield Homemade, some gold thread and some strips of typed journaling. Be sure to head over to the JustNick store to see all of the gorgeous files...so much fun...so many possibilities!!
