Hello Friends!  I have a project in my Life Crafted album for Traveler's Notebook size that is all about my favorite summertime activity...swimming.  The new Hey Fishies and Good Vibes cut files are so perfect for summer!

I cut the Hey Fishies, just sizing them a little smaller first, with plain white cardstock.  Then I used a .01 brush and watercolors to add lines to my fishies.  I love this look because it goes with the design of my project, plus makes my fish very colorful!

I trimmed about 1/4-1/2" strips of pattern paper to emphasize the horizontal line of the project.  Using the black cardstock background really helps my colorful fish and the Good Vibes cut file from yellow cardstock to pop.

To add a little more color to pop on my background, I first used Photoshop Elements to make scallops of my photos to trim and adhere.  I used my photos to trace and cut out from cardstock.  The scallops also go with scales for fish!

The last thing to add were enamel dots for bubbles and puffy stickers and hole reinforcers.  Grab these cut files for your next summertime project, would love to see what you do!

Good Vibes Layout | Nicole Kerr July 2, 2021 07:00 1 Comment

Hello crafty friends!
Nicole here and today I'm sharing a layout that I created using three new cut files that will be released and available tomorrow, July 3rd! There are so many possibilities for summer layouts that you don't want to miss them!
The new files that I used are:
I began my layout by cutting the radical background on white paper.  I cut it in half to make it look more like a sun. My initial thought was to just use it as a stencil with my distress inks, but once I applied those inks, I love the cutout as much as the back ground! I added foam adhesive behind the cutfile and glued it to my background paper. I love the dimension this gives!
I then used some watercolors from my stash in two shades of blue to paint the bottom portion of my page to look like the water in the pool.  I used the Hey Fishies cutfile and added three fish to the bottom part of the page. I watercolored these little cuties a shimmery gold.
For my title, I used the "good vibes" cutfile.  I cut this phrase three times on white cardstock and glued all three layers together.  It gives it more of a chipboard type of feel and is a lot sturdier when added to all of the layers. With all of the other colors going on, I decided to leave this plain white for a pop of clean and bright white.
For my photos, I used three of my son swimming in the pool when we took a four day vacation in June. He is my little fish and this spread was perfect to document this moment! I used the new Cocoa Vanilla Sunkissed collection to embellish my photos with florals, clear stickers, puffy stickers and even some tangled thread.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
Don't forget to set those alarms and come back tomorrow to grab all three of these new cut files!
