Hello JustNick Studio Friends!  Today I'll be using one of my favorite shapes in my Traveler's Notebook album...Hearts!  And specifically this gorgeous cut file called Mandalla Heart 3.  I cut this out exactly as it opened using white cardstock.

With this intricate cut file, I wanted to keep it very light and beautiful.  To do that, I dug into my stash of pattern papers and pulled blushes, peaches, and pinks.  And I only backed the two outter parts of the file, keeping the rest with just the white.

I had my photo picked out, but I couldn't help but think of a box of chocolates with the photo and especially the cut file.  So I used the inside cut heart from the cut file, and punched squares, circles and scallops in the same pattern paper colors to fill my box of chocolates, having my daughter's photo be the largest and best piece!  I then added canvas heart stickers and my title with foam alphabets to add a tone on tone look with dimension.

I had to add journaling to this because just looking at the photo, I remembered exactly this Valentine's Day.  She had her new Moriah Elizabeth's Pickle Valentine sweatshirt, I braided her hair, and we added the clip flower to the end.  I used a tag that coordinated with my colors.  I added twine, a foam heart, and wood veneers to this special memory to finish.

Absolutely a gorgeous cut file and so inspiring to work with.  Hope you enjoy and happy creating!

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share.

 

 

I focused on the beautiful Mandalla Heart 3 cut file that will be in the Just Nick Studio store very soon if not yet !

 

 

I cut the heart quite big to be able to fit my photo in.

 

I thought to leave it all white this time, to make it look like a beautiful soft lace that embraces the sweet photo of my daughter and our dog.

 

I used the Pinkfresh Studio “My Favorite Story” collection to create this layout. I used a striped patterned paper for my background that I cut in a 11 inches square, and backed it with a beautiful soft green floral paper. I added a blue patterned paper to the center of the heart to make my photo stand out.

 

 

I hand stitched with blue thread the junction of the blue paper with the cut file, and also hand stitched a few X’s around the edge of the page. I adore that subtle addition it gives to the page !

 

 

I backed my photo with tissue paper and pink patterned paper and embellished around it with a few floral clusters.

 

I wrote down my journaling on a piece of white cardstock on which I added velum paper and a beautiful pink puffy frame.

 

 

Finally, I added a few white Nuvo Drops as the finishing touch !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! Even though the Mandalla Heart Cut file is plain white, I think it is still the focus on my page and I totally adore it !

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page in some way today !

 

Thank you for stopping by !
