I Love You - PageMaps March 14, 2016 07:00

Hello!  I hope you've been enjoying a closer look at all of the pages the design team has been sharing from the PageMaps team up.  It's Jaclyn here today to share the page I made combining a one page PageMaps sketch and two of my favorite Just Nick cut files.

Becky's sketches are some of my favorites!  They take the guess work out of where to place the elements on my page, and truly just allow me to have fun with the design, embellishment and story telling.  Here's a look at the sketch I was given to work with:

And here's my take:

As you can see, I stuck pretty close to the design.  Why mess with a good thing, right?!  In the sketch a large block of pattern paper is depicted below the photo arrangement.  I knew this would be a nice spot to highlight the Crazy Daisy cut file. I cut the file out of white cardstock and trimmed it down to 4" tall by 6" wide.  I used bits of pattern paper and solid cardstock to fill in the empty spaces behind each daisy, for a fun and colorful look.

As I often do, I turned to pinterest for my title.  I found a nautical quote that would work well with my page and chose to highlight a portion of the quote to serve as my page title.  I cut the 'I Love You' out of navy cardstock using the Outline Alpha cut file.  I chose to discard the outline portion of the cut for a more clean and simple design.

Don't forget, from now until April 30, 2016 you can grab any design of your choice in the Just Nick store by using the code PAGEMAPSFREE at checkout.  Pair that file with one of the PageMaps sketches and you've got a fun project in the making!

Hello all. This month, we have partnered up with Becky Fleck. I've been a big fan of Becky's sketches from Page Maps for years and so when I received an email with the sketch that I would be using, I was so excited. I really love the design of this sketch. There are so many possibilities. At first, I was going to turn the sketch side ways to try it that way, but after thinking on it, I grabbed my scraps from the February Clique Kit and just started applying papers, stickers and pictures and my scallop cut file to make it work. I really like how this turned out. I think that the Kraft cardstock really makes this layout pop with the kraft sticker flower. 

Here are a few close-ups. I really love the Sticker words from Pretty Little Studio's "Wonderland" collection.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Hi everyone.  It's Heather and I don't know about you but I love designing with sketches, especially PageMaps sketches.  I use them as a general guide to my design as evidenced below.

The sketch called for one large portrait photo, as shown above plus 2 smaller portrait photos above, where you see the tags. The rest of the design follows the sketch fairly close. 

I used the Birthday Sentiments cut file and the heart from the exclusive files Nicole created for the Clique Kits team up in February.  You can use the Broken Heart cut file to achieve the same effect.

I added layers of papers, ephemera, stickers, banners, etc to give the page a celebratory effect.

Thanks for stopping by today. Come back tomorrow for more great PageMaps inspiration.
