Freebie cut file Tuesday with Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine

Good morning! It is free cut file Tuesday on the Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine blog ... and here is what this month's freebie looks like!

Nice and summery :)

Here is the page I created using this freebie and lots of Basic Grey South Pacific:

I cut the sun shape out of 3 different patterns of paper and layered them together with some enamel dots and wood button and twine. I added in some Basic Grey mini alpha stickers too as part of my title.

Hip Kit Club June kits!

Good morning!!! Did you have a good weekend?? Our was pretty busy, but back to the routine today. The kids are out of school now here too, but that is a whole other story!

I am just stopping in to share a page I created using the June Hip Kit Club kits.

The kits for June are full of Crate Paper Poolside. I love the soft and pretty colors and thought they paired well with these summery ice cream photos of our first trip for ice cream a few weeks ago. How cute are these Crate Paper diecuts mixed with the wood enamel buttons and Freckled Fawn chipboard stars.

I really love piecing together different sizes and shapes of paper and mixed up lots of bits on this page, mostly using up my scraps from the kit ... although I did not use up much as my kits were PACKED this month! So many good things.

To find out more about the Hip Kit Club kits - just stop by their website and get the details ! Of all the kit clubs I have been involved with, I can honestly say this one is the best!

Fancy Pants Summer Sun + Let's Capture Our Memories!

Just stopping in to share a page and card that I made this month using some sketches I created for a great Canadian website - Let's Capture Our Memories! If you play along with the sketch challenge, you can win a GC to the store! (find all  the details HERE)

I decided to use one of the fun new collections from Fancy Pants to create both my layout and card. Here are the sketches I created - one for a layout and a similar one for a card.

Now, here are the projects I completed using them:

I love the big alphas and combined them with the Summer cut file word from my store Just Nick 


 Here is the card I made using up some simple scraps from my Summer Sun scraps and a Technique Tuesday stamp from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by!

Make sure to join in on the sketch fun on the Let's Capture Our Memories blog HERE

XOXO | JustNick Cut Files

Good morning!! It is my first post here on the blog with a project from my store JustNick, and I couldn't help but NOT cut one of the cut files and use it as a sketched image instead.

I did this in my Silhouette Cameo and filled the XOXO background design with watercolor paints to create this page:

Once the design was sketched out and painted, the whole thing came together quickly!

 I also had some white scribbles from Scribbles 1 pre-cut and ran them through my typewriter to add some text. Once I finished that, I painted some gold mist on them in a few different spots. I really love how that turned out! It looks like a pre-made diecut shape!


Well, that is it for me today!

More to come on the JustNick blog this week as we share projects made with lots of backgrounds available in the store!

Summer Sun with Fancy Pants!

Good morning!! I am popping in to share a project I made this month using the new Fancy Pants Designs collection - Summer Sun! I love the pretty colors in this collection - they scream summer and are pretty girly, which I love :)

I used a lot of the Summer Sun brag cards for this page and layered them on a slight angle along with tiny tags and strips of paper from the collection. I kept it all pretty simple and finished it off with the fun oversized letters for my title.

That's it for me today! Summer is here and I am trying to enjoy the sun and outdoors more now that my kids are officially done all their activities and school is out tomorrow !

Felicty Jane - I Am kit!

I had the pleasure of working with the I Am Kit by Felicity Jane! Jeana had a challenge on the blog to scrap a photo of ourselves and this was the result.

There are so many exclusives in the kit - I love the floral paper and I did a little fussy cutting of the pretty black/white floral paper in the kit and added some watercolors to them to match the paper background. I thought about doing the leaves too, but decided to leave them white as I didn't want too much green on the page.

I just love these monthly kits, all the exclusives are so fun!! Jeana is having a DT call on the blog right now too - so if you are interested in hearing more, check out Felicity Jane
