Some People | JustNick Design Team

Hi everyone!  I'm back this week with a second layout about friends that I've already shared on the JustNick blog.  How lovely is this Pink Paislee collection?  Those colors are such happy colors.  I've known these ladies since around 2004 as well!

Hop over to the JustNick blog to see close-ups and details on how this layout came together.

Have a crafty week!

Celebrate Friends | JustNick Design Team

You know how life just gets away sometimes?  I inadvertently missed sharing two layouts here that I shared with the JustNick blogosphere, so I will be sharing them this week.

We'll start it off with one about a friend I've known since around 2004. We met at our "day job", and we worked at two of the same companies during the same time.  But the really fun part is that we are also scrappy friends in real life!  It's so fun to have someone that shares the same passion you do.  <3  You can visit Heather's blog here.

Here's a layout about us!  Not only is this layout about us, taken while we enjoyed flights of margaritas, I created the layout at a crop we went to together!

To read about how I created this layout, find out what cut files I used, and see close-ups, visit the JustNick blog now!

Have a great week!!

Sweet | JustNick Design Team

Howdy crafty friends!  Welcome to April, welcome to spring.  I'm here today with a fun mixed media cut file layout for JustNick using a very spring-y floral cut file and elements from Pink Paislee's Take Me Away collection by Paige Evans.  Take a look!

If you are new to mixed media or looking for some tips, I share a good tip on the JustNick blog on keeping your paper flat to cut mixed media using your electronic cutting machines (such as my Silhouette Cameo).  Go check out the tip and some close ups where you can see I used Bo Bunny Sugar Glitter Paste as a glue for some beads and sequins.  Fun!

Thanks for visiting today!

You Have My Whole Entire Heart | JustNick Design Team

A warm welcome back to you today, and welcome first-time visitors!  Today I'm continuing the February love-themed layouts and sharing my third of the month (which was shared yesterday on the JustNick blog).  

My husband and I took this selfie as we waited with the kids for Walt Disney World to open our first day visiting back in 2014.  It's one of my favorite snapshots of us!

I used three new cut files from JustNick and combined them with the gorgeous Heidi Swapp Hawthorne collection.  I can't stop staring at that ombre paper!!!  To get the cut files used on this layout and to see close ups, head over to the JustNick blog now.

Have a super week!

Happy Birthday | Paper House Productions Design Team

Hiya crafty friends!  Today I'm taking a short break from love-themed layouts to share a rainbow themed layout that I created for Paper House Productions.  Creating this one was so much fun!

I first pulled a rainbow of papers from the Color Washed paper pad and cut balloons using the balloon die from My Favorite Things Blueprint 26 set.  Just laying those balloons out made me happy!

Next, I glued some older Close To My Heart fibers as the balloon strings.  Once that was dry, I included the "HAPPY" (JustNick Outline Alpha) and the birthday over the strings.

After putting my photo on the layout, I sprinkled a few enamel dots, keeping it simple. 

Thanks for stopping by today...make it a fun one!

Must Be Love | Paper House Productions Design Team

Hello again crafty friends!  I hope this week you are getting your fill of both necessities in life:  crafting and chocolate.  I know I am!  :)  Today we're continuing the love themed layouts, and I'm sharing this pretty layout using Paper House Productions Stargazer with all the purples!

I welded two cut files from Scrapbook & Cards Today together for this fun layout.  And I included two shaker hearts from Queen & Company, filled with fun sequins and beads.  Take a closer look:

 Have a super Valentine's or Galentine's day filled with love and chocolate.  <3

XOXO Love | JustNick Design Team

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the month of love.  I have several love-themed layouts I'm going to share with you, and my first one is not your typical pink or red love layout.  :)  Check it out below, then hop over to the JustNick blog to see which cut files you can go grab, a fun technique, as well as close ups for detail.

Wasn't my Little Man adorable with his copper hair?  I paired these two new fun cut files with the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Boys Rule collection.  The colors are amazing, and fabulous boy layouts and more can be created with it.

Have a great week!
