Love You

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a baby layout of my youngest son on the Just Nick blog.

Since February is the month of love, I wanted to use some love themed cut files so I used the Love You cut file and also the Lace Heart cut file from Just Nick Digital Cut Files.

I love the softness of vellum on a layout and I also love to use sequins so I combined both and added some vellum and sequins to some of the circles.  I also added some flair buttons from A Flair For Buttons and enamel dots from Bella Blvd.

Owls are some of my favorite so I thought these puffy stickers from Paper House Productions would add some cuteness and fun to the layout.  

I cut the title "Love You" on some black heart patterned paper.  I also backed some of the circles from colored patterned paper from Echo Park.  

Stitching adds more texture so I added some machine stitching.  Finally I journaled on some vellum using my Typecast typewriter.

Creating a baby layout brings back so many good memories.  My son is now 17 and will be graduating from high school this year.  

I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Have a great day!

Love, Love, Love

Hello friends! February is the month of love and so today I am sharing a love themed layout for Just Nick Digital Cut Files.

I chose two cut files for this layout of my hubby and I.  I love the Ying Yang Background and I thought it fit perfectly for this layout.  Basically there isn't balance if there isn't one without the other and I thought it depicted being together.  It was time consuming to create this layout. First I cut out the background on white cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and then I backed all shapes with patterned paper.

The title is created from the Lots Of Love cut file and I selected three different love words, cut them out on white cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder.

I love the softness that vellum gives the layout so I typed my journaling on vellum and attached the vellum strips with some machine stitching.

Finally I added some flair buttons that I had in my stash from A Flair For Buttons. 

I really loved creating this layout of my best friend and I.  Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy your day!
