Thankful for Mom | Morgan Langley May 06, 2018 07:00

Hey crafty friends! Today I am sharing a post for mom's week on the Just Nick blog using the "floral frames" cut file! 

I love ALL the beautiful floral cut feels in the shop and all of them make great spring layouts! I started by cutting my frames and backing them with patterned papers from the "Turn the Page" collection. I love how much color this adds. I also watercolored my plain white background before adhering the frames with the packaging technique and some splatters! I tried to match the paint to colors in the collection! 

Then for some embossing! I stamped some additional florals and leaves into my frames and embossed with gold glittery powder! I also embossed the "love you" and "thankful for you" sentiments and I love how this turned out! 
I fussy cut and added some additional flowers, butterflies, and adorable coffee and tea cups around my floral frame and stuck in a picture of my mom and I now, and when I was little. I created a kind of bottom and top border by using the branding strips of the 6x6 pad and then adding multiple word sentiment stickers. 
Thank you for stopping by! Stop by the shop to pick out your own floral cut files and create something for your mom this coming mother's day! 

Heart is Full | Morgan Langley February 15, 2018 07:00

Hey crafty friends! I am excited to be sharing another LOVE post this week! I used the beautiful "Heart is Full Background" cut file to create this fun and simple layout of my sister, Violet, and I!
I cut the file first from pink card stock and then made a circle a little big larger than the file on my Silhouette to create the white circle to make the file stand out against this cute patterned paper from the "Turn the Page" collection. Then on to embellishing! 
I used the "Turn the Page" ephemera pack as well as the 12x12 paper pad to cut out those adorable flowers and butterflies. I stitched through the middle of some of the butterflies for added texture. I also added puffy hearts as well as a bow, camera, and hot air balloon sticker from the "Carousel" collection. 
I created my title using the thinkers and puffy sticker "happy" also from the "Carousel" collection with the ampersand piece from "Turn the Page". I loved this mixing of alphas.

This cut file was SO fun to use! I cut the tags different sizes using a mix of kraft, white, and patterned card stock. Then I backed the cut outs with another scrap of paper and was ready to add some stitching accents! 

On some of the tags I used a ruler to mark straight, different sized lines with a pencil and then stitched them, some I stitched around the image, others I stitched snowflakes, and a couple I did some french knot stitches! 

I put thread or bakers twine through the hole of each tag and put adhesive so they would stay in position on my layout! 

For my background I just sewed on some scraps of Christmas paper with my sewing machine using a mix of white and red threads. I added my photo and some wood snowflakes and Christmas trees and then the layout was complete!

Hello Fall! | Morgan Langley October 02, 2017 07:00

     Hello crafty friends, Morgan here! I can not believe it is already October! For my layout today I used the "Bare Tree" cut file and made the tree not so bare by using the leaves included in the file and adding them onto my tree! 

     For my background I added some light pink, yellow, and orange watercolor splatters and cut my leaves from different colored card stock. Some of the leaves have more intricate pieces so I used the "double cut" feature on my Silhouette Cameo to get clean lines. Then I backed them onto white card stock to make them thicker and more durable for stitching. I stitched around them using corresponding thread colors. I love what paper embroidery adds to the layout! 

     For my photo cluster I used various Dear Lizzy ephemera and some of the cut file leaves that I hadn't yet stitched behind my photo. I also added in some floral pieces I had and a cute flair button with a wood grain background. I love how cute that little bunny piece is and thought it went in nicely!
