Best Day Ever | Morgan Langley July 04, 2017 07:00

     Hello crafty friends! My name is Morgan and I am so excited to be sharing my first layout I created for Just Nick!

     For my layout I used the "Graphic Chevron Background" first as a guideline for my paper embroidery. Rather than cutting the file I used a grey Silhouette Sketch pen on white card stock.

     After sketching the cut file, I poked my holes and starting stitching with shades of blue and pink thread. For the larger sections not filled with lines, I stitched around the outside and then added pieces of scrap paper I had from the Crate Paper Oasis collection. I also used the branding strips of the 6x6 Oasis pad to machine stitch around the outer edges of the layout. 

     For my title I used the "Best Day Ever" cut file, cutting it on hot pink cardstock and then cutting three pictures from my family vacation to Mexico to fit into the word DAY. 

  

   I also typed my title with my typewriter on white paper and added it in the center of the layout under the A. I stamped my date in the right hand corner by stamping the year and then layering the date again using a roller stamp. I love this technique for really making the date stand out.

     Clustered around "DAY" are palm branches from the cut file "Take me to Paradise". I love these leaves and use them on almost every summery project I make! I also clustered some word stickers, sequins, puffy stickers, and embellishments. 

    I splatter painted my background with light and dark pink watercolors, added sequins, and I love how it turned out! Thank you so much for reading about my crafty process and I hope you will try and make your own projects using these beautiful cut files! 

 


Digital Down Time April 23, 2016 08:00

Are your kids digitally plugged in and addicted? I have a 13 and 9 year old who both have their own iPad minis and are thrilled when they are allowed to play on them. Time is limited with all the swimming and school work but when there is down time, they like to have their games. This layout shares my sons love of the mini while sharing my love for digital cut files!

What better way to share the digital love than with this digital cut file from the store called Graphic Chevron Background? It has a techy feel to it and is just perfect for the digital theme of the layout.

The patterned papers and embellishments from Simple Stories' "Life in Color" collection are a perfect compliment to the cut file as the bright colors really stand out and make the cut file pop.

The white background cardstock was cut using the background file and I used patterned papers behind the main background to add the color and visual interest to the layout. The header and footer of the page are various pieces of scrap patterned paper, washi and stickers that accompany the Simple Stories collection.
