Thankful For You | Nicole Kerr October 15, 2021 07:00
Hello JustNick friends! Nicole here and today I'm creating a layout using the gorgeous new Rustic Ring 2 cut file. As soon as I saw this cut file, I knew it needed paired with the new Jen Hadfield Peaceful Heart and Paige Evans Bungalow Lane collections! here a look at my completed layout and the file:
I just love these clusters of leaves and florals! I backed them using papers from Peaceful Heart, Including backing the circle with the pink and white check. I auditioned many papers from both lines and felt the blue fit the best. It was a nice bold, yet soft, contrast. I felt like the project was missing more of the pink, which then lead me to placing the blue piece on a diagonal. To make this feel more "home" feel, I added stamped stitch lines around the edges of my papers.
I then added a cluster of elements on the bottom left. I loved the "how lucky" and house ephemera. I felt they were perfect for this spread documenting my thanks for my son and how positive his attitude and mindset always is! I felt this space also needed more florals, so I cut several from a sheet of patterned paper.
I then added my photo to the right cluster and brought in the same elements of florals, die cuts and a banner.
Lastly, I added my title around the outside of the frame and two small paint and sequin splashes on the top right and bottom middle of the spread. I felt those two areas needed a little something without taking the focus away from the rest of the layout.
