Be You

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a layout at Just Nick Digital Cut Files using the Floral Burst Background.  

I cut out the Floral Burst Background on white cardstock with my electronic die cutting machine. I then copied and pasted the petals on another screen and cut them with my electronic die cutting machine in different colors of patterned paper.  Next I placed the petals over a pink piece of patterned paper and trimmed around the edge leaving about 1/4 inch border.  

I used a paper piercer and pierced holes about 1/8 inches apart around the petals and then using six strands of pink embroidery floss, I hand stitched around the edges of the petals.  

After all the stitching was completed, I added some die cuts, stickers, pearls, a flair button from A Flair For Buttons and splattered some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Blush.

Here is the cut file I used on my layout.

I love the homespun feel of the hand stitching.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Right Here Right Now

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a layout I created for the JustNick Studio and Scrapbook Circle Team Up that is happening all this week.

I was given the fabulous March Kit from Scrapbook Circle that has some items from the Shimelle Little By Little, Amy Tangerine's On A Whim, Paige Evans Oh My Heart, Pretty Little Studio Summer Vibes, Fancy Pants Design's Joy Parade Collections. Here is what I created...

I knew when I saw that bright, colorful paper from Shimelle's Little By Little Collection that I had to combine it with the Aztec Lace Background Cut File from JustNick.

For the title I cut the Right Here Right Now Cut File with my Cameo and then took a pair of scissors and separated the words to split up the title.

The fun part of the process was embellishing the background.  I used the puffy stickers and dots from the kit and added them to the triangles on the background.

I also added some stickers to all four corners of the layout 

I knew I wanted to use the Paige Evan's Oh My Heart stamps in some way so I stamped the word "today" on a sticker and then added some mini alpha stickers for the year.  

I hope you enjoyed my layout.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
