Hello Just Nick fans! It's Lee-Anne here today and since Mother's Day was a little over a week ago, I  had my mom on my mind and thought I would create a special layout to honor her.

I really put my love into this layout and thought about what my mom really loves which are flowers and the color purple.

I cut the Floral Ring 2 cut file out on white card stock with my electronic die cutting machine and hand stitched with several colors of embroidery floss around the flowers, leaves and ring. When the hand stitching was completed, I watercolored the flowers, leaves and ring and then backed it on a piece of white card stock that I used the same colors of watercolors and the packaging technique to give it more color and an artsy feel to the page.

The title was created with the Mom cut file that I cut out on patterned paper with my electronic cutting machine and then I popped it up with some very thin strips of foam adhesive tape that I cut with some scissors and stuck it down onto a white piece of card stock that I trimmed a little larger than the title and finished it off with some black mini alpha stickers that I machine stitched to keep them secure. 

Here are the two cut files I created this layout with:

I really don't think photos do this layout justice. It looks so much better in person.  

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Just Nick shop for these and many more cut files.  Happy scrapping!

Hello, everyone! Donna here sharing my first layout for the month of May.

I created a simple scrapbook page about me and my dear friend. I printed this photo long time ago but just used it for my project today. It was taken at The Kingdom Tower in Riyadh when we went there together with our families.

I've been into subtle colors lately and that's what I did here with the flowers and the butterflies which I think matched perfectly.

I cut the Floral corner cut file into two instead of using it in just one corner

I used a mix of pink, yellow, orange and green watercolor to coordinate with the colors of the papers and embellishments I used. I love the sweet colors in the "Sorbet" kit by Clique Kits.

I used the Delicate butterflies cut file as a stencil. I carefully brushed watercolor to outline the shape of the butterflies. And once dry, I wrote a bit of journaling in the butterflies and added puffy hearts in some of them.

I layered some paper strips, messy thread, scattered colorful sequins and other embellishments.

Cut files used:

and Delicate butterflies

That's all from me today. I hope you liked my page.

Also, don't forget Just Nick is celebrating it's 2nd year anniversary with an awesome sale!

Happy crafting,

Hello! Donna here for my first layout the month of March.

I used the cut file Posie Swag on my layout

I deconstructed the cut file again. You will notice I do this a lot of times! For this particular design, I envisioned flowers/vines kind of hanging either at the top or the edges of the layout. 

I played around for a bit and decided to place the cut files as seen in the image

I wanted to make them appear like they're floating so I thought that keeping it white, as is, would work. Adding colors to the cut file was the last thing I did. Well, sort of second to the last thing, because the very last step to my process was slightly brushing pale peach watercolor to the edges of the white background to add a bit of interest aka make it a bit messy lol!

I was aiming for a peachy color for the flowers but I couldn't achieve the right shade. I still like how it turned out. 

I used Pretty Little Studio's Woodland collection.

I hope you liked my page!
