XOXO Love | Majken Pullin February 5, 2019 07:00 2 Comments
Hello JustNick fans! Majken here with you today, and we're sharing love-themed projects with you to kick-start February. For my project I went a different path than the normal red or pink colors and instead captured a layout using blues to show love for my son. He's now 10 years old, but I love going back and looking at photos from when he was a baby and toddler because that phase just passes way too quickly! I used the Boys Rule collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.
My first task was to cut out each cut file using my Silhouette Cameo on white textured cardstock. I trimmed the XOXO Background 3 cut to place down the left side of my layout to use as a background.
After playing around with the photo and matting it with different papers, I included the Lots of Love 2 file at an angle. But I felt the cut file was lost because it seemed "flat" so I decided to repeat cutting it using dark blue patterned paper, and I used it as a shadow to help the words "pop" off the page.
This technique is easy to do. I even used foam tape to bring the shadowed cut file up a little more from the page to give it even more dimension.
It's fun to create a layout about love that uses non-traditional "love" colors. The JustNick shop has so many love cut files to choose from, so don't be shy - grab a few today!
Enjoy your February. XOXO <3
