Celebrate This! | Morgan Langley September 21, 2017 07:00

     Hey crafty friends! Today I am continuing with our weekly theme of backgrounds! For my layout I used the "Brick Circle Background" and I love how easy it was to work with! This file is so versatile and can be used to document any photo with any collection! I love backing cut files with patterned papers because it makes the page so colorful and fun! For this layout I used Maggie Holmes Carousel collection to do so! 
      I cut my file on white card stock and then went to cutting the pieces to back it. A trick I have learned with backing cut files is to save the negatives of the file on your cut mat and then use those pieces as a template to cut your patterned paper around (leaving a little extra space for adhering)! Then I can just cut the amount of patterned paper that I need! 
     Then I embellished! The fun part! I fussy cut some of the florals from the collection and used the chipboard sticker sheet, puffy stickers, and ephemera pack. I love the zebra and bunny carousel pieces! So cute! I added a chipboard "celebrate this" banner sticker for my title.
     I loved how this adorable bunny matched the bunny in my photo! I hope you go check out all the fun backgrounds in the Just Nick shop and all the other wonderful blog posts this week! Thank you for stopping by! 

Fun Stitched Ink Splats! | Morgan Langley August 24, 2017 07:00

     Hey crafty friends! Back to school season is happening and for my layout this week I was inspired by these fun ink splats that just bring me back to elementary school art class! I used all paint chips for this layout which was a super fun challenge! 
     I cut all my ink splats on white card stock and then backed them with the paint chips. I tried to use bright fun colors! For added texture I went back and stitched with corresponding colors, even switching shades of thread on each ink splat. 
     I cut fun mixed semi circles with my left over paint chips and then put different colors together with different colored thread behind them to add to the page. 
     I cut my title on light pink card stock and added some sentiment stickers and gold chipboard glitter stars! This layout was different for me, but I love how it turned out! Thank you for reading and make sure to check out all our back to school posts and cut files! 

Summer Circle Background Layout! | Morgan Langley July 18, 2017 07:00

     Hello friends! It is Morgan here and I am excited to be sharing my layout I created using the "In the deep end background". This file was so easy and fun to work with!  

     I cut the file on white card stock first and then taking papers from the 6x6 "Oh My Heart" collection I cut small pieces to fit into the squares around each circle as well as the middle piece. I grouped all the pink patterns together, all the greens together, etc. Then I laid out the file on my page and marked where each colored circle was for my splatter paint. I matched the splatter paint with the color of circle that would be on top.

 

     Next I fussy cut the larger flowers from the 12x12 "Oh my Heart" paper pad and layered them behind the circles still matching the colors. I added smaller flowers with bunched thread and sequins into the center of some of the smaller circles. 

     I cut three photos into circles to fit inside the cut file and love how they flow into the layout. I used my type writer for my journaling about this summer day at my grandparents house in Ohio. 

     Thank you for reading about my crafty process! I hope you try and incorporate this file into one of your own beautiful creations!
