The Beginning. September 10, 2015 07:00

Diana here and I wanted to share about my back to school page, The Beginning (as in the beginning of the school year).  I have a confession, I LOVE background cuts!  I think that is my weakness.

The particular cut I used is the Geometric Background:


I wanted to challenge myself in a couple of ways.  First I wanted to resize the cut to 8 1/2" x 11"--super easy to resize that in my silhouette software.  The second challenge was that I wanted to use several different pieces of pattern paper to back my cut.  I started with a solid sheet of cardstock to give my creations some stability.  I then used the pieces that were cut from the background as templates.  I made sure that the pattern paper was "facing" up.  So that it was not backwards.  I then traces and cut just larger than the trace mark so that there was an edge to glue on the backside of my cut out.  After I cut each piece I glued it right to the back of my paper so I wouldn't lose it.  The papers I selected were from a 6 x 6 paper pad, and I really didn't plan where they were going to go I just went with the flow. I really like the affect!

Here are some close ups:

Meet Lee-Anne Thornton June 03, 2015 07:00 4 Comments

Meet Lee-Anne Thornton!

I am married to my best friend Rick and have three great kids, a son who is 15, a daughter 28 that is married and a son 30 that is married.  Both of my married children live about 200 miles away.  While my 15 year old son is at school, I love to scrapbook in my studio.

I began my wonderful scrapbooking journey in 2001 and it's been quite the ride! In the past 3 years, I have been honored to be published in several scrapbooking magazines including Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine and Scrapbook And Cards Today and have served on a variety of design teams.  

My other passions besides scrapbooking are cooking, baking, photography, flowers, animals and going to the mountains near where I live. I am very excited to be asked to join the first ever Just Nick Design Team and to put my much loved Silhouette Cameo to work!

Here is a sample of Lee-Anne's work using one of our cut files:
