Hi scrappers! Today, I hope to inspire you with another layout using Just Nick Studio’s digital cut file and Clique Kit’s February kit. I love working with digital backgrounds and the heart background really caught my eye. I used lime cardstock to really make the cut file pop off the page. This layout was super simple to make. I just layered some patterned paper together for the base, cut the image from my Silhouette Portrait, and added some mist and embellies.

I added some random heart stickers and chipboard to the digital cut file. The little banners were stamped images that I applied to scraps of patterned paper and hand-cut them to use as embellishments. It makes the hearts stand out much nicer than without.

I added some mini word stickers, butterfly rub-on and some Nuvo dots at the bottom to fill in the layout a bit.

Thanks for visiting today!

Clique Agenda: Wander

Hello all. Nicole here with a fun project to share with you. I finally got a chance o get messy with this travelers notebook. Have you gotten yours yet? I think there’s one more in the shop if you are interested. Snag it now, (here) quick, because it might be gone by the time you get finished seeing what I did with mine.

I am relatively happy with how this turned out. However, I did make a mistake. I did NOT apply gesso to the travel notebook BEFORE I applied the paint which means that it didn’t take long before the paint started to peel off the notebook. So before you do anything with yours, do yourself a favor and apply gesso to your travel notebook right now.

I added some scraps in the supply case to have on hand whenever I feel the need to decorate a page. I love blue so I gathered a few blue pieces of embellishments. 🙂

I used lots of acrylic paints and watercolor paints to decorate my travel notebook inserts. I love the acrylic paints by Ranger. The colors are so vibrant. I used watercolor paints by Prima and Shimmerz Paints as well.

For the folder insert, I decorated it with blue and green acrylic paint. Once dried, I used a paint dabber to make little white circles on the cover. Then I painted a thicker word and applied it to the front of the insert.

Art Studio:Playing with templates

Blog Image_Art Studio

Hello friends! Today, I have a fun layout using some goodies from the Clique Kits shop! I am in love with the fun paper packs by Becky Higgins. I decided to combine both paper packs, “Sweet Edition” and Everyday Edition” to create this fun layout. The bobby pin patterned paper is so neat!

I decided to play with my acrylic paint. It’s been too long. I created a fun background for my layout using a template that I have from The Crafter’s Workshop. I simply painted the template shape onto white cardstock and once it was dried, I hand-cut the patterned to use as a fun background for my photo.

Here are a few close-ups. I decided to play with my stamps too!  If you’re a subscriber, be on the lookout for the transparency tags from Pretty Little Studio because they will be in the December kit! I cut mine in half so that I could tuck them behind my photo on both sides of the photo.
