Future Chef | Just Nick Studio | Stuck?!Sketches

Hi Friends!

Today I'm sharing a layout for Just Nick Studio...This week the DT was asked to create a layout using the Sept. 15 sketch from Stuck?!Sketches!

This layout features a few photos of my son cooking his favorite chicken dish...
He loves watching the Food Network channel and now he thinks he's a chef...HELP!!!
Oh My Goodness!  :) 

Future Chef!

Here's the sketch from Stuck?!Sketches

To add some texture to my background I used the Retro Square Background cut file from the shop, cutting it from white cardstock and so not to overpower the page I decide to use white cardstock also to back it.

Here's a few close-up to show you some of the details!

I used the sketch as is .... there are four circles on this sketch, two I used the cut file Rustic Leaf Frame  which I cut into two different sizes and the other two were handstitched!

 I created some layers under my photos using patterned paper from Pink Paislee (Outfitters) collection.
I added a little cluster of stars to the bottom left of my photo, another two more stars one to the top left and another to the right to create a triangle...

To create a little more texture to my page, I added some machine stitching in a few places and   
added a few puffy stickers from Fancy Pants Design (Good Fellows) around my page. 

For my title I used another one of Just nick cut file call Type It Alpha, and I finished my layout off with few different colors splatter.

Come play along with this sketch to win a $25 gift certificate to Just Nick Studio!!!

My Sweet Boy!!!

Hi friends!!

This month I decided to play along with  Scrap the Boys  challenge.
The challenge this month this to created a layout using a photo for you and one for the boys in your life.
I decide to make this layout for my son!

My Sweet Boy....

I started by opening the All Boy cut file from Just Nick Shop  in my Cameo... and choose to use only the stars in the file.  I arrange the stars in my cameo exactly where I wanted the cut out to be on my page... 

My layout features patterned papers from the Dear Lizzy Saturday collection and the Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life collection....and a couple of  wood veneers from the Cocoa Vanilla Love Always collection!

Here are a couple of close-ups of my layout...

I added some foam tape behind some of the stars for a little extra dimension....I also used a black pen to draw an outline around the insides of the cut file.

 I used one of the circle cut outs to add a wood veneer and alphas to create my title.
Place a few enamel dots on the page and this layout is finish!!!

Little Moments | Just Nick Studio

Hi Scrapping Friends!!!

Today, I'm over on the Just Nick Studio  blog sharing my latest layout .... The title for this layout says it all !!!  I love all the little moments in my life...  A kiss on the cheek!  The many I love you throughout the day...and when you call me to your room, so you can give me a hug!!!  I am so lucky to call you my son.

Little Moments...

I started my page off by using the Nana's Doily Background cut file, this is one of the many new awesome digital cut files in the shop. Most of the time I like to use white cardstock for my cut files, but I just got the new Pink Paislee-Take Me Away collection and I couldn't resist play with it!!!
At first I wanted to back the Nana's Doily Background cut file with white cardstock, but decided to use this gray patterned paper from the Take Me Away collection!!! I added some machine stitching around the edge of the layout and in the middle of the doilies I use embroidery floss for some extra texture...

A close-up of the handstitching using two different colors embroidery floss..

I created three little clusters next to area where I did the handstitching on the cut file, using stickers from Simple Stories-Carpe Diem collection...  

For my title I use another cut file Script Alpha 2, and did some heat embossing on it... 

To finish the layout off I added some white paint splatters around the page!! 

Thanks for stopping by! Remember to check out the shop to see the new cut files each week!!!

Creative Scrappers #298 | Keepin' it Real | Cuts 2 Luv...

Hi scrapping friends!!!!

It's time for the reveal of Creative Scrappers September sketch #298!!!  For today's sketch I used  a couple of pictures of my husband and I, we are celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and wanted to make this page as a gift for him...

Our sponsor this month is Cuts 2 Luv ...Great selections of badges/flairs...

Keepin'it Real...

Here's the sketch #298..

The sketch has this circle in it, but I wanted to use a different form of circle....saw a picture in a catalog of a metal sculpture and asked Kristine to created a cut file for me to use...

So for this page I combined the Pink Paislee-Take Me Away and Cocoa Vanilla Studio-Love Always collections. I love the soft colors in both of these collections and will go perfectly with the flairs I have!!!!
I choose to use the beautiful patterned paper from Pink Paislee-Take Me Away for my cut file and I decided to use two photos instead of one, which brings me to using the Circle Square Background to back my photos.

Here's a few close-ups...

I added some journaling strips between by photos...and scattered a few die-cut hearts around the left side of my circle ...    
You can also see I tucked one of the flairs on the right side of my photo and added the other one to the top left on to the cut file,  I wanted your eyes to follow the movement of the circle....  

I created some more textures by adding a few lines of stitching across my page... 

I found the the perfect title for this page in the thickers from the Take me away collection...I also added this beautiful lace doily and the fabric flowers from the Love always collection....

Every Summer Has A Story | Just Nick Studio

Hi friends!!! 

Today I'm sharing a summer layout up on Just Nick Blog
As soon as I saw the summer fun and summer lovin cut files, I couldn't wait to use them!
This layout feature some photos of my husband and son having a great time enjoying the outdoor shower and pool.

I had a blast playing with the Summer Fun cut file, you can use one design from the cut file or group together, the possibilities are endless.... I choose to group a few of the design together with a phrase from the Summer Lovin file. First I ungroup/release compound path and select which design images I wanted for my page, remember to make back into a compound path. I then proceeded to move around the icon to created my design, overlapping each one and weld them together to make one piece...

Here are some close-ups of my layout. 

I used white cardstock for my cut file, and chose several stickers, embellishments from the Summer Sun Fancy Pants collection to tuck in and around the cut file... 

    Here you can see I used paint on the phrase, which I use for my title..  

I created a second layout using the palm tree/sandcastle from the Summer Fun cut file, which I painted. Added the sun and clouds from the Sunny Days cut file with some handstitching in two different colors to add some texture.  I also decided to use the wave from the Lake Life cut file to back my photo...    

Here's a few close-up ...

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Hi Scrapping friends!!! Today is sketch #297 reveal day at Creative Scrappers  ....
Kristine Davidson has design another awesome sketch... This month Creative Scrappers is team up with the The Cut Shoppe.

This photo was taking in the Bahamas. We were waiting for the ferry to take us to the Blue Lagoon island beach, had such a great day....


Here's sketch#297...

I love the circles in this sketch, and decided to use one of the cut file from the Crop Circles in my layout. 
Here's the cut file...

The Crop Circles cut file includes 4 circle designs, that can be used for your scrapbookinging and papercrafting projects.

I started by cutting three different sizes of the maze cut file onto my patterned paper, using Pink Paislee Fancy Free collection and also a navy blue cardstock.
I started to assemble the cut files by placing the patterned paper on top of the navy blue cardstock and overlapping a bit to create added dimension.

Here's a close-up of the circles...

For my horizontal line I did a fun design with some handstitching, this too can add some dimension to your page. :) 

Here's another close-up, to see some of the details...

I also used another cut file for my title Love Rules this was a freebie in February...and I love the wave affect in this cut file with the word LOVE..

You can see I added a flair on top one of the maze circle, a tag made with three different patterned paper and a stamped butterfly which I fussy cut out...

Finish off my layout by splashing a few different colors paints around the page...

Our designers created some FABULOUS layout, go check them out and remember to come back on the 15th to see The Cut Shoppe DT projects!
