This Makes Me Happy April 21, 2016 07:00

Hello everyone,

Melissa here with a page that has one of the most adorable photos ever. My friend, Kirsten, lets me scrap all her adorable family photos and share them on the interwebs. What a privilege it is to have these awesome photos and I love sending the finished pages to her. Thankfully, we have similar styles so, I get to scrap them any way I want. :)

Anyway, let's move on to chatting about the cut files I used and how this baby came together!

Look at that squishy baby face!!! 

Okay, focus on the cut files Melissa.

I absolutely LOVE Nicole's modern style cut files and this Graphic Background immediately caught my attention. I knew I wanted to do something with it straight away, on a page. I chose to use a subtle yellow paper and gradually utilize color to bring the focus on that adorable photo. Seriously. Adorable. I want to kiss that smooshy face, too.

Ack. Focus! 

With this page, I committed to placing the background down right away. I usually don't do that as I like to test out layering and such first. But this one, I knew it was what I wanted so, I did it and there was no turning back!

When I layer, I like to alternate calm/muted and bold colors. That way, I can create some dimension, my title work will stand out more and the focus lands on the photo. 

I incorporated a frame, from the Card Sentiments 3, file as part of the title. I trimmed a part of the word away from the frame so I could tuck the photo under it a little bit. It's those little details that can really compliment the page. Also, I've had that metal clip in my stash forEVER. Finally got to use it and stitch it down to anchor the frame.

Then, the rest of the page just came together. A little cluster here and a little cluster there. I always like to leave a little bit of room for my friend to journal on her pages as she sees fit. I think there is the perfect little space under the blue frame to add a little note about her cutie, squishy, adorable family.

Here are a few more close ups before I leave you today.

Love the cut files I used today! Go grab them in the shop!

A Cut Above April 06, 2016 07:00 20 Comments

Hello JustNick friends!

Marcia here ... I am so excited to be back today for our team-up with PinkFresh Studios. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to create with the Life Noted collection.

This is such a versatile collection and it has the coolest embellishments. Here is the layout I created ...

Did you see those acetate words? Swoon!

My daughter is a Vet student at the University here in Minnesota. This year she started performing surgeries. Of course she documented the event with a selfie, and of course I am scrapping it! Proud Mama moment! I used the Graphic Background digital cut file, cutting 2 so that they would span across the width of my layout. This graphic design is the perfect compliment to this piece of blue pattern paper that has lines criss-crossing it. The diagonals were perfect for framing these awesome embellishments like these gold epoxy stickers and these rubber pieces.

Here is that Graphic Background digital cut file ...
