Hello friends!  Today I am excited that Just Nick Digital Cut Files and Fancy Pants Designs are teaming up. Fancy Pants makes amazing collections.  I created a pet layout on Elly, my daughter's dog,  using the beautiful Attwell Collection by Fancy Pants Designs.  I love the pretty colors in this collection.  
For this layout,  I cut several of the Basic Piechart cut file on white cardstock with my Cameo and watercolored with several colors of Ranger Distress Inks and backed them with papers, flair, a tag, some cute sticky notes, and puffy stickers from the Fancy Pants Attwell Collection. I also added some machine stitching to keep the piecharts in place and give some added texture. 
 For my layout I used the Handcut Letters 2 cut file for the title
and the Basic Piechart cut file.  
Check out lots more cut files in the Just Nick store.  Thanks for stopping by!

The Look

Hello friends! Today I am sharing this layout on the A Flair For Buttons blog of my daughter and youngest son.

For my layout, I looked at my flair stash and chose flair that would coordinate with my layout.  I don't always use flair buttons from a particular theme.




I used the black and white chevron flair button from Minimal 1 Flair,  the blue and black star button from the Around The World 1 Flair, and the silver and white flair button from the Silver And Gold Flair.

Have a great day!

At The Vineyard

Hello friends! Today over at Paper House Productions, I am sharing a layout of a summer vacation a few years ago where my family toured a vineyard to see how wine was made.

For my layout, I used a woodgrain background paper and cut a background cut file from Just Nick Digital Cut Files on white cardstock  with my Silhouette Cameo that reminded me of "grapes".  I added the Paper House Productions Wine Country 3D Stickers here and there to draw the eye around the page. 
 To add the photos,  I punched out all the 3X3 photos with a 3 inch circle paper punch and adhered them underneath the cut file to frame them.
I love the dimension that the Paper House Productions 3D stickers give to my page.
Also, the cut file (Stippled Circle Background) is from Just Nick Digital Cut Files. It reminded me of grapes so I thought it would work well with this layout.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Snorkle Love

Hello followers!  Today I wanted to share a layout of my oldest son snorkelling.  He loves to travel and when he goes to tropical destinations, he loves to snorkel.
I had fun with the Just Nick Digital Cut Files Bits And Pieces Background cut file and one of my favorite things to do is to back cut files with patterned paper.  
I cut out the Bits & Pieces Background on some white cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and backed it with some papers from Fancy Pants Design's new Attwell Collection.  I love the colors and thought it would make a great summer page.
Here are some more closeups of my layout:
Here is the  cut file I used for the layout:

I Love Being A Mom Layout

Hello friends. Today my layout is being featured over at Paper House Productions. It's about my love of being a mom.  It truly is the hardest job in the world, but it is very rewarding.

I used several papers and stickers from the new Flamingo Colorways Collection.  I love the bright pinks and the cute flamingo sticker.

I Love Being A Mom Layout Supply List

  • Flamingo Quilted 12" Colorways Scrapbook Paper

  • Flamingo Rose 12" Colorways Scrapbook Paper

  • Flamingo Mini Trim Cards Colorways Scrapbook Paper

  • Flamingo Stripes 12" Colorways Scrapbook Paper

  • Flamingo 12" Cardstock Stickers

  • To begin, I cut a rose design background cut file on my electronic diecutting machine with the Flamingo Rose paper and backed it with several other papers from the Flamingo Colorways Collection.


    I matted my photo and added several stickers and a journal spot for my journaling.


    The dotted paper was strategically placed on the bottom of the layout where I added my title with alphabet stickers so the title would stand out more. The arrow sticker was added to direct the eyes to the title.


    This layout looks better in real life as it is difficult to see the layering and the rose design in the photos.


    It takes some time and patience to cut out all the papers, but I am happy how it turned out.

    Thanks for stopping by and hope you are inspired to try the Colorways Flamingo Collection.  Happy creating!
