My Creative Scrapbook December Main Kit | Heat Embossed Background | First Snow

Hi Scrapping Friends!

Today I am sharing a layout I created with a heat embossed background!

 First Snow...

I started my background off with some white cardstock.....
I decide to use the star wood veneer for my design, I used VersaMark watermark stamp to stamp the star image over the entire cardstock!

After I covered the stamped images with some silver embossing powder, I shook off  the embossing powder and the extra left behind I brush off with a small brush.
Next I heat the embossing powder images with a heat tool.

I trimmed the embossed cardstock to 10x10 and stitched it to my 12x12 base...

From here I started building my layers ...

Here I started to add my photos...

 Close-ups details...

  I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful ....
Thanks for stopping by :)

Famille | Just Nick Studio

Hi Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm sharing this layout I created for Just Nick Studio!

This layout photo is from a 2007 Christmas visited to Grenada, to see Grandpa & Grandma....
Max had such a great time hiding in Grandma's kitchen cabinets and enjoying lots of beach time!

I started by cutting several poinsettias using patterned papers...I resized the poinsettias so I could have a few various sizes. I know I wanted to use a background cut file on my page, so off I went to JustNick Shop to take a look around. I decided on the Missing Mest Background, cut it out of white cardstock and back it with a 12x12 mint color patterned paper... 

Here's a few close-ups...

I used white paint on the layered poinsettias to soften the color of the red a bit and added Fancy Pants Designs puffy stickers dots to the center of each flowers.

I decide to keep my embellishments to minimum, so to keep the eyes focus on the poinsettias and the fabulous background!

I end up using another cut file for my title...Famille .... 
I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful....make sure to check out these cut files and many more at JustNick Shop!

Layering With Digital Cut Files | My Creative Scrapbook December Main Kit...

Hi Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm going to show you how I use digital cut files to add layers to my page!

Just For You Santa....

I start my layout off by selecting the Christmas Tree Background....from our exclusive cut files made for our kit members! 
A background cut file can be a great starting point to creating a page with layers.

I cut the Christmas tree background from white cardstock....I love using white as a beginning point.
Then I back the open trees with one 12x12 patterned paper.

The next cut file I decided to use was the holly wreath from the holiday icons...    

Once I decided on the size of the wreath, I then used the offset tool in Silhouette Studio to create an outline of the wreath...I used two different patterned paper for this.

I added some foam dots underneath to give it some extra dimension.
Here's a close-up...

Once I was finish assembling the wreath, I used a white pen to outline the inside of the holly leaves  and also outlined around the trees in background cut file.
At this point I stop with the cut files...but if you like you can also add a title or another few more icons (design) to add as embellishments!

Here's a few close-ups...

From here I started putting my layout together, I hope I inspired you to use your cut files on your pages!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Except for the three small green bows :)))    
 First I open the Ornament cut file in my Cameo, resize the cut file to make two different sizes, and cut it out of white cardstock.
On the three larger ornaments, I did some heat-embossing by making vertical lines, backing with patterned paper and machines stitched around the edge....for the smallest two Ornaments I also did some heat-embossing to the inside of the circle and decided not to back with patterned paper!

Here's some close-ups...

   I decide to place a few puffy stickers with the poinsettia flowers on the top of the larger ornaments and top it off with the green bows I had in my stash!

I decide to place one of the smaller ornament underneath a larger one, and the other I tucked underneath the bottom left of my photo!
I created a cluster to the left of the photo using the ephemera and puffy stickers from the Fancy Pants Designs -Merry&Bright collection ✯

December Sketch # 301

Here's my take on this Awesome Sketch!
Holiday Magic! 

I decided to use the sketch by flipping it on it's side...I used the gorgeous Fancy Pants Merry&Bright collection to document our beautiful Christmas tree! 

Here's a few close-ups...

I used a few Cork Confetti Stars and 2 Cool 4 U Sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps to scatter around my page...
  I tucked a few doilies under my photos...I then added a few embellishments pieces from the Merry&Bright collection, tucking some under and around my pictures.

On the bottom left of my photo, I added a small cluster flowers and top it off with a flair from the Merry&Bright collection
I also added form dots underneath the flowers and flair to give it some extra dimension!

I used one of ephemera that came in the Merry&Bright collection for my title!  I took a piece of patterned paper, cut around the clear piece and then glue the paper behind to form my title...

Here's the line-up for today hop!

Love You | Just Nick Studio

Hi Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm up on Just Nick Blog sharing a layout I created using one of the new backgrounds in the shop...Stack Em Up Background !

Love You...

In this photo my son found the perfect pumpkin ( It's the small one on top the larger pumpkin)!! :)  
All he wanted was that small pumpkin! But we decided to get the the big one also ;) 

I cut the  Stack Em Up Background from white cardstock and back it with patterned paper from Fancy Pants design-Golden Days Collection....Then machine stitched around the edges.
I then place it on top of this wood grain patterned paper, also in the Golden Days Collection!

Here's a few close-up...

 Now, I couldn't resist using the PUMPKIN and leaf icon in the Sight Of Fall cut file!
I cut three different sizes for the pumpkins, and back each one with a different patterned paper, also from the Golden Days Collection....
For the leaves I cut four out of white cardstock, I stacked one on top the other and glue it down the middle.

For my title I used another cut file, the heart you from the  Pocket Cards 1.  To add a little more texture and interest to the title, I added some puffy stickers also from the golden days collection.

After I was finish with my page, I decide to add one last cut file, Floral Doilies which I tucked underneath my photo! 

Thanks for stopping by :)

Remember to check out the shop to see the new cut files each week!
