Happy Monday scrappers! Nicole here with a fun summer layout... I don't know about you, but it's been a crazy winter in Maryland! Last month, when I created this layout, it was in the 60's all weekend. On the 20th of February! Naturally, I was in the mood to scrap a summer layout. LOL.

I used three different cut files and Simple Stories' You  are here collection for this layout (Arrows 3, Summer Words, Sunny Days). I also used some of my Altenew stamps to create a fun geometric flower and a smaller flower to add to the "relax" die cut circle. 

Here are a few closer photos of my layout. I love all the layering on this layout! 

Products Used: Patterned Paper, Stickers: Chipboard Frame: Enamel Dots, Clear Stickers: Die-cuts: Simple Stories, Stamps: Altenew, Digital Cutfiles: Just Nick Studio (Arrow 3, Summer Words, Sunny Days).

Thank you for visiting today!

Hi scrappers! Today, I hope to inspire you with another layout using Just Nick Studio's Heart Background 3 digital cut file and Clique Kit's February kit. I love working with digital backgrounds and the heart background really caught my eye. I used lime cardstock to really make the cut file pop off the page. This layout was super simple to make. I just layered some patterned paper together for the base, cut the image from my Silhouette Portrait, added some mist and embellies.

 
I added some random heart stickers and chipboard to the digital cut file. The little banners were stamped images that I applied to scraps of patterned paper and hand-cut them to use as embellishments. It makes the hearts stand out much nicer than without.
 

I added some mini word stickers, butterfly rub-on and some Nuvo dots at the bottom to fill in the layout a bit.

Crazy Fun October 03, 2016 07:00

Hello everyone. This week, we are teaming up with Pretty Little Studio to bring you lots of inspiration using Just Nick Studio cut files and Pretty Little Studio products.. A brilliant collaboration, if you asked me. Lately, I've been creating layouts with my sketch pens. LOVE THEM. I love Nic's background cut files and sketch pens are perfect for these cut files.

Whenever my family tries to get a family picture, Katie never fails us. She ALWAYS does something to mess up a perfectly good picture. LOL. I used bits and pieces of Pretty Little Studio's Woodland Collection for this layout. And I added some fun die cuts and stamps from Pinkfresh Studio because they had "blue" in them. I was going for a monochromatic look. What do you think?

Here are a few closer shots of the details on my layout.

Scrappy Pals - PageMaps Inspired Layout March 15, 2016 07:00

If you are a sketch fan and a digital cut file fan then the past few blog posts have been right up your alley! Today I have another layout to share to add to the PageMaps/Just Nick collection seen here recently!

I incorporated the one of the flowers from the Basic Flowers set and the Butterfly Background file into this layout that is based on an 8.5x11 sketch from Becky. You can see the full collection of March sketches HERE; the sketch that this layout is based upon is the second from the bottom.

The butterfly background file I cut from vellum for a subtle effect of the butterflies flitting across the watercolored background. The flower is a soft peachy/pink color that stands out a tad more but is still subtle. I really wanted the picture to be the main focus of the page with the cut files melded into the background.

The main cluster of the page is more prominent and rather "adherent" to the sketch. while the cut files are more of my substitution for the half circles and banners sticking out from the top of the cluster.

Don't forget to use the code PAGEMAPSFREE at the Just Nick store from now until April 30, 2016 to grab any one design of your choice for free! Pair it up with a PageMaps sketch and be sure to share it with us on FaceBook or Instagram!


Playing with Sketch Pens January 28, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone. This is my first post for Just Nick's blog and I am so excited to be here. I've owned a Portrait for two years now and I am hoping to use it more this year! I love how versatile the Silhouette Portrait is. There are so many things you can do with this cool little machine if you're willing to try new things.

When I found out that I made the team, I ordered two new mats and some sketch pens. I've been wanting to try the sketch pens for some time now, but thought it would be too complicated. Little did I know how simple these pens are to use. Really. All I had to do was pop the blade out, insert my sketch pen and tighten the grip. Then I just changed the setting to "sketch pen" and I was done. So easy.

I decided to play with the Rosette Background. I thought it would be perfect with this photo that my five year old took of me at the park just a few weeks ago.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope I was able to inspire you to give sketch pens a try!
