Guest Designer Audrey Yeager + a freebie! July 17, 2015 07:00 4 Comments
We welcome Audrey Yeager to the blog today as our Guest Designer for July!
We knew we had to ask Audrey to GDT for us when we saw her great projects at My Scraps and More!
I am a thirty something stay-at-home mom to my kindergartener and pre-schooler. I started scrapbooking around 2005, although I have been “crafty” my entire life, dabbling in different crafts here and there. In 2007 I discovered the online world of scrapbooking, which totally changed the way I scrapbook. Since then, I’ve been on several teams for kit clubs, manufacturers, and challenge blogs. In January of 2014, I took over ownership of an online retail scrapbook store called My Scraps & More. I have an entire store in my basement, and it allows me the best of both worlds to work part time from home in the store and spend time with my kids, too! (Not to mention I get to scrap with ALL THE THINGS!)
I love to scrap about our everyday moments and try to record all those little things that are said and done. I’m also so glad that we live in a place like upstate NY where we experience every season because I love being able to change up my products and inspiration from one season to the next!
I love how scrapbooking can remove me from anything else I may have on my mind, and just take me to a place where all I think about are colors, patterns, and the memories behind this photo. I also love the social part of it, too, in going to crops and retreats, and the online support and camaraderie!
In addition to scrapbooking, I love to quilt and sew, garden, play volleyball, and watch movies and sci-fi TV series!
We asked Audrey to create a few projects using our cut files and look at what she sent us!
I used the Brushstrokes cut file from the store and cut different "strokes" from different colored papers. I layered the stoke cuts in a vertical line behind my photo. I cut the Simple Scalloped Strips file from white cardstock and added small bits to the top and bottom of my photo as a little border.
We also asked Audrey what type of file she would like to use and she asked for a lake inspired cut file! This is what we sent her:
Check out what Audrey did with this file:
I used the waves from the freebie file and cut them in different sizes. I cut them from apiece of paper that had an ombre pattern to it so that the bigger waves were on darker paper, and the smaller waves were on lighter paper. For the title, I cut the words "fishing" and "lake" from white paper and inked it with navy ink to add a bit more contrast.
Thanks for sharing your great projects with us Audrey!
To follow Audrey and check out more of her work, here is where you can find her:
If you like the Lake Life Freebie - you can download it in the store for a limited time!
Just add the item to your cart and use the code: lakelife at checkout until midnight July 31, 2015 to get this file for free!
After July, the file will still be available in the store, it just won't be free :)
You Are My Happy June 23, 2015 07:00
Hi JustNick Fans! Christine joining you on this Tuesday with a layout about my two year old. As soon as I saw the You Are My Happy Cut File I knew I wanted to use it for a layout and exactly how I wanted to place a picture with it! The titles just look like they are meant to have a picture sit on them!
I used patterned paper and the Brushstrokes cut files to create my background for both the picture and as anchors in others spots on the layout. I love the look of paint but I am not brave enough (or patient enough) yet to add too much of it to my layouts, so this is the perfect solution!
The brushstrokes made a great matte for my picture and also a great base for my title and journaling!
We'd love to see what you are doing with JustNick files too! Share them with us on Instagram and tag us using #justnickstudio or share them on our Facebook Page!
