Hi, today I have a layout to share for Just Nick Studio. I am super excited about this one as it is one of my faves! I have actually used two different files on this one being Word 4 and Ride the Wave Background. Here is my layout and how I created it:
I really wanted to use the ‘wave’ background because my photos are all pool related. But I wanted to create a grid style background so I replicated the cut file 4 equal times on white card stock and stitched it down in a grid. I added some stitching to hold it down and also to give it some texture.
I had about 3 or 4 photos of the kids jumping into the pool on our recent holiday and as they were quite busy on the busy background I decided to create a fun and funky title using the ‘Today’ from the Word 4 cut file and put my photos inside the framed word. I really love how the coral card stock allows the blues and brightness of my photos pop on my page and it is a super easy technique to do!
Here are some close ups:

Today I have a new layout to share for Just Nick Studio!! I have used two cut files on my layout, firstly the gorgeous Delicate Butterflies and also the Word 4 cut files which I used to create my title.
I knew as soon as I saw this cut file I knew it would be perfect for these photos of my daughters entering the wearable arts competition at our caravan. Yes my girls outfits are made out of paper!! I really love the vintage vibe of this cut file which I cut out on a floral patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection. As the name would suggest, this is a very delicate cut file – I would definitely recommend cutting it out with a sharp blade and not having a too sticky mat as it is very fine. I really liked how the butterflies flowed down the page and I was able to tuck my photos in and around the file this helps your eye wander down the page from the first photo to my second photo too.
Next, I wanted to add a second cut file to my layout – and the Word 4 file worked perfectly for a fun title, and adding it on the larger butterflies added an extra layer of dimension to my page too. I first cut out the outline in some teal coloured cardstock so that it matched the colours is in the embellishments and the cut file. Then I cut it out on white cardstock to fill in the file and make it pop off the page.
I really enjoyed cutting out these files and using patterned paper added some interest and variance in colour to the butterflies and of course made it super easy to embellish with more of the Maggie Holmes collection.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Do you cut files with mainly cardstock or do you use patterned paper as well?
Hi, Today I am back with aclean and simple layout featuring the Word 4 cut file for Just Nick Studio. I really wanted to keep my cut file the main focus of the page so I decided to cut it out LARGE! I am really happy with the way this turned out.
First, I cut the file out on patterned paper so it gave me the green/blue outline and then I recut the file out on some cardstock, I first, made the cut file ever so slightly bigger so that it fit easily in the negative space of my outline. I decided to keep my photo neutral and print it out in black and white and I love the softness of it agains the bold title!

To create my layout I have used products from a mixture of Hip Kits, including the January 2017 Project Life kit. I have created another processing video of how I created this layout so I hope you enjoy it!
Over the weekend the Hip Kit Club held lots of challenges for (inter)national Scrapbooking Day over on our Hip Kit Club Member Forum on Facebook and as Hip Kit Designers we each held a challenge of our own.
My challenge was to create a layout using a design principle (such as rule of thirds, visual triangle etc) and repeating elements. I have created my layout using the April 2017 Hip Kits and it was so fun to put together!!!

If you are interested in how I created this layout, check out my You Tube process video!
I have just started doing process of videos of some of my layouts to highlight my creative process so I would love it if you could check it out.
My latest share for the Hip Kit Club is on a Thursday inspiration post along with designers, Cara and Anna with a project each featuring these products. This week, we are featuring the Alphas and Numbers that were included with in the April 2017 kits – please head over to the blog post to see how the other designers worked with these products here.
Here is my project:
I decided to use the Vicki Boutin Crayons to color in the numbers from the watercolor sticker sheet both of which are in the April Color Kit to create a countdown to FIVE on my layout and used a photo of my youngest daughter Aimee on her recent birthday! It is so easy to just color these in and add some water and they create the most beautiful color.
I also wanted to create a vertical design and to do this I added strips of the Bella Blvd black and white washi tape from the Embellishment Add on to create anchor points in my design which I used to add extra embellishments on and around. I enjoyed using the Crate Paper Oasis ephemera and Pink Fresh Studio leatherette stickers from the Mix Up collection to create a fun non-traditional birthday page of my daughters ‘flamingo party’

My next layout share is a Mixed Media one! I don’t do a lot of mixed media but I totally enjoyed creating this one with the Hip Kit Club March 2017 kits!
I started off with the patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection and added some white gesso to it and then used the stencil from this month’s Color Kit with the Paste-eez (Hold the Mustard and Raspberry Sherbet) in a grid design and then added some extra straight to my page with an old credit card.
I really wanted to add some more vertical design so I created the linked circles in my Silhouette Cameo and used these circles to anchor my embellishments.
I really loved the way this turned out and I am totally enjoying getting the Color Kits from the Hip Kit Club each month. It is a great way to try out new mixed media products and they work so well with the monthly main and embellishment kits.
Thanks for stopping by today xx M
Hi scrappy friends!
I am a bit behind on my blogging after being away on holidays. So I have a few things lined up to share over the next few days to catch up.
Firstly, I have a layout to share for the Hip Kit Club using the March 2017 kits. Each week there is a sketch posted up on the Hip Kit Member Forum on Facebook and 4 designers play along. This is the sketch that was designed by the fabulous Irit Landraf:
Here is my take:
I created the circular design in my Silhouette software by combining 3 different circles and used this as the basis of my layout of my daughter Aimee’s first day of school! I flipped the sketch design around a bit but loved how it had two photos offset on it – perfect for the photos I had of Aimee and one of her with Taylor and their friends on her first day.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have enjoyed my layout from the Hip Kit Club!!
