Listening Bear | Jillibean Soup | Michelle Whorwood August 27, 2016 07:00 2 Comments

Hi everyone, Michelle here with a layout to share with you today with Jillibean Soup.

 I was lucky enough to receive the fabulous Alphabet Soup II collection to create with.  Wow ... I just love the colours in this collection.  I decided that I really wanted to create a layout using the new 'Quilted Background' cut file using the 'Mixed Veges' patterned paper and then team it up with lots of pops of colour from this collection to create this vibrant layout of my daughter.  At school, when they have been good listeners they get to bring the Listening Bear home with them for some adventures before they head back to school the next day.  

The Pea Pod Parts Die Cuts were the perfect embellishments for my layout - I just love using the word sentiments in die cuts to help portray how I feel about my photo and I ended up using them instead of doing lots of journalling on my layout.  They are perfect for layering and I have done so in a visual triangle to balance out my page.  

Some close ups:

Let's Go Play - JustNick & Jillibean Soup Team Up! August 26, 2016 07:00 5 Comments

Hey everyone it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout, this time using the amazing JustNick Studio cut files and products from Jillibean Soup

 

I love this team up and had so much fun creating a cute layout using the Jillibean Soup Mushroom Medley collection and the Scallop cut file!  The Mushroom Medley collection has so many cute and fun elements, it's perfect for outdoor layouts, seasonal layouts, or any type of layout actually!  I loved the masculine colours in the collection and I decided I back one of Nicole's cut files with as many patterned papers as I could!

   I used a fun picture of my youngest as I found it really matched well with the collection.  I scoured over all the cut files in the shop and I eventually decided I wanted to do a scallop background.  I know many would consider scallops to be a bit girly but I loved how they added a feeling of motion to the layout, and since that was what I was trying to get across they went perfectly!  I also have a process video so don't forget to check that out to see how I made my layout!

JustNick + Jillibean Soup = fun! August 25, 2016 07:00 4 Comments

Hey everyone! Nicole here today to share a fun about me project for our team up with my friends at Jillibean Soup

 

I am lucky enough to be on the Jillibean Soup team, and they are a great group of people. I love their products and truly create some of my most favorite projects with their products. I decided to do an about me page with a few cut files from the store.

I used the two new Jillibean Soup collections, Hardy Hodgepodge and Chit Chat Chowder on this page. I started by diecutting the title from various papers in both collections, using the Simple Set Alpha from the store. I love the playful and simple letters, and mixing the colours is lots of fun too!

Next, I wanted to fill the bottom of the page, but didn't want to use my typical background cut file, so I diecut a bunch of different labels from Labels One, again in varying papers from the Jillibean Soup collections.

I added in some diecut Ink Splats and then added in a bunch of Jillibean Soup stickers, wood enamel dots and wood veneers to finish my page quite easily.

I love how it all came together quickly, and colorfully too!

Cut files used:

Simple Set Alphabet

Labels One

Ink Splats

Hi everybody! This week, Jillibean Soup and Just Nick Studio are partnering up to bring you lots of inspiring layouts to get your mojo flowing. I wanted to create a mixed media layout so I could paint on my transparency words! Can I just say one thing, I love these things. They are so fun and they look great on just about any project. Amazingly, they do not take that long to dry. I sprayed the background with three different Coloringz by Shimmerz Paints in the shades of No Yokino, Heidi Ho Blue and Don't Citron Me. I took the colors right from the photo. The heart digital die-cuts are from Just Nick Studio's shop (Remember).
Initially, I was only going to include a photo with very few embellishments, however, I found that once I started applying embellishments and papers, I couldn't stop. I just LOVE how this turned out. It's such a happy layout. I let the transparency word die-cut and sticker letters tell the story. Notice how I balanced the top and bottom of the layout by adding a few hearts and butterflies? I think it really makes a difference. Otherwise, the layout would have looked like it was unbalanced.
Supplies: Patterned Paper: Die-Cuts: Stickers: Veneer: Jillibean Soup, Digital Cut files: Just Nick Studio, Paint: Ali Edwards, Coloringz: Shimmerz Paints.
 
Here are a few close-ups:

Funhouse Selfies August 22, 2016 07:00 15 Comments

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. All week the JustNick design team is partnering with the awesome Jillibean Soup.

 I was so excited to receive the Healthy Hello Soup collection to play with. Since it's almost State Fair time here in Minnesota, I was inspired to scrap a couple really funny selfies of my daughter and her friends as they were looking at themselves in funhouse mirrors. I wanted a background cut file that would reinforce the funhouse theme and found the Sunburst Circle Background. It was perfect!! Here is my layout...

I backed some of the sunbursts with reflective silver foil. I love how this reminds me of those funhouse mirrors. I embellished with the Healthy Hello Soup stickers, acrylic shapes, and cardstock die cuts. 

For the 'Selfies' portion of my title I used the Lower Case Alpha cut file.

Here are the digital cut files I used...

Thanks for stopping by today!

We will be giving away a $25 gift certificate to our store at the end of the week - leave a comment her or over on the Jillibean Soup blog to enter!

Be sure to stop in all week for more inspiration with Jillibean Soup.

Hello everyone. Nicole Martel here with a fun boy layout using Jillibean Soup's "Healthy Hello Soup" collection. At first glance, I immediately thought of coffee/food layouts, but the more I looked at this collection, I thought it would work well with a few photos that I took of my son a few weeks ago. I totally love the yellow, aqua and blues in this collection. It's such a pretty combination.
I decided to use pieces of the "Totaly Tubular Background" cut file from Just Nick Studio for this layout. I love circles and I can't seem to get enough of them. :) 
 
Supplies: Patterned Paper: Stickers: Die-cuts: Jillibean Soup, Enamel dots: Simple Stories, Digital Cut file: Just Nick Studio (Totaly Tubular Background).
I went a little crazy with the circles on this layout. If I could find a spot for one, it went there. LOL
Here are a few close-ups:
 
I also included lots of layers on this layout. I love using foam squares on my stickers and die-cuts to make them pop off the page.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Cherish today June 02, 2016 07:00

Hello! It's Donna here to share my first layout for June on Just Nick's blog.

For my page, I used the Flowers in Bloom background cut file.

Let me give you a little rundown on how I made my layout

First, I brushed water on the cut file background before brushing yellow gelato. To add a touch of pink, I used Vintage pink chalk edger diluted in a bit of water as well. After it has dried, I adhered it to the patterned paper as you see in the image.

Then I bunched up some light pink thread underneath the photo. Added a bit of layering and clustering of ephemera in the right edge of the photo

I used one of the tags to line up straight the little sticker alphas

After adhering everything, I splattered some mists/inks to the layout. Then I wrote my journaling after the ink/mist splatters dried.

I used CK's June 2016 kit, "La Dolce Vita" on my layout

I hope you liked my page!
