This is ME - JustNick Studio

Hi everyone! Last Tuesday my first layout for JustNick Studio was up on their blog and I thought I'd post it here as well. 

For my first layout I found a totally adorable cut file of a field full of tulips! What can be more appropriate than a field of tulips for a Dutchie?! So that's the cut file I went with and here's what I created:


I totally adore this cut file. I love that I can back all the flowers with lots of different pieces of patterned paper and make them super colorful! For my page I "stretched" the cut file just a little so the flowers are a bit "longer" and now cover my 12"x 12" background more. The cut file originally looks like this:



Using my Silhouette Cameo I cut the tulips cut file from a multi-colored sheet of patterned paper and then backed it with even more patterned papers, using the "Summer Vibes" collection from Simple Stories. Here are a few close-ups:


On top of every tulip I also attached an enamel dot and a few (word) stickers or diecuts,



I used my sewing machine to add a bit of fun stitching to all the stalks of the flowers.


I don't know if you can see it but in the photo I'm standing in a field of tulips! 

This is it, my first DT layout for JustNick. Hope you like it! 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Wishing you happy crafting!

Step-by-step tutorial "clocks" layout - My Creative Scrapbook June Main Kit

Hi everyone, for the blog of My Creative Scrapbook I did a detailed step-by-step of my "Blessed" layout. The MCS June kit with the Early Bird collection from Bo Bunny contains the most amazing papers, like the sheet with all the clocks, which is one of my favorites in this kit.

This is the page I made:


Here's how I created it: I started with the white cardstock and selected five different color mists, inks, etc.. which I sprayed and splattered horizontally over the center of my white cardstock like this:



Also included in the kit is this stamp set from 1Canoe 2 and I used a few of the stamps for my background as well:



I placed my photo on the cardstock background, below the stamped word "love" and punched and cut a series of clocks from the "Clocks" sheet:



Moving the clocks this way and that I came up with this design, which I quite liked. Except for the 10 clocks I also added a few die-cuts (butterfly and flowers):


I cut two strips from the paper "Time Flies" and adhered these at the top and bottom of my layout. I also added a few more die-cuts (bird, flower and another butterfly) and adhered the wood veneer word "blessed" on my photo:


Of course I needed to add some machine stitching:


and some hand written journaling:


After stamping the date (twice) my page was finished!


Two more close-ups:



This is it! Hope you like it!

Here's the photo of the June Main Kit. If you wish to read more about it and how you can secure one for yourself then please visit the MCS website.


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! Wishing you a wonderful Sunday!

Such a shame they grow up so fast!! 

Here are a couple of close-ups:




Love the Early Bird chipboard with a bit of glimmer and of course all the wood veneers in the kit.

Here's a photo of the June Main Kit again:

LOVE - another layout using the June Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing another layout created with the June Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook. I really loved the clock paper in the Early Bird collection from Bo Bunny and used it for two of my pages. Here's one of them:


When we were in Spain last May we walked for hours on end and on one of our walks we saw this wall with the painted squares. They were probably in the process of decided in which color to paint the wall, but us it was a nice spot to take a photo and the colors of squares match this collection perfectly!

Here are a couple of close-ups:




And here's a photo of the June Main Kit:
