Hi there,

Zsoka here with you today sharing my very first layout for Just Nick! I'm so excited to be here, thank you Nicole for the opportunity!

I picked one of the pretty flowers from the Floral and Fauna cut file set.

First I cut out a simple ring, then I cut several of the flowers, in different sizes. I backed my flowers with different papers from the gorgeous Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection.

I created a bigger and a smaller cluster of flowers opposite each other on the ring. I added a few different bits and pieces to the middle of them: buttons, chipboard and puffy stickers.

I printed my photo in a couple of different sizes, I wasn't sure which one to add. I didn't like the shape of the photo for this background so I added the same photo in two different sizes.

Other than the flowers I didn't add a lot of embellishments because I wanted the flowers to shine! A couple of chipboards, stickers, title (which I stitched down so it doesn't go anywhere!), date and journaling plus some black paint splatters and done!

I hope you like my project! Thanks for stopping by today. See you next time X

 


So happy together | Laureen Wagener February 11, 2017 07:00

Hi friends!

Welcome back to a new post and new inspiration for "Love" week. Now, this week wasn't a week to design for me - I don't have a loved one and also am not loving the Valentines Collections with all the hearts and pinks and love themed phrases.

Because of that, I though I'd bring you some inspiration for a "love" themed page without being to themey or valentines related, if that makes sense. Plus I didn't use a Valentines collection - I used the new Chasing Dreams collection by Crate Paper and Maggie Holmes.

I asked my best friend to send me a picture of her together with her boyfriend and their two cats - they are a couple since 7 years this summer and I thought I would just create a page for her to hang in their appartement.

The new Henna Heart cut file is the most beautiful cut file ever! I knew I had to use it and so I started by backing the flower bits and leaves from the file with a patterned paper and later adhered the entire heart onto some vellum.

At first I thought I would use it as is but then decided to place a patterned paper with black tiny hearts on it behind the vellum for a softened look.

I embellished around my picture and the title and then create two mini clusters. That way my page isn't overloaded with too many embellishments and the cut files still stands out beautifully.

I hope I could inspire you with a "couple in love" themed page without using a colection specifially designed for that purpose. The Chasing Dreams collections still has some beautiful elements like hearts and soft colors to use for a love themed page!

 

Have a great weekend,

Laureen
