Daydreamer - DT layout for Just Nick

Hey there,

I'm back again with a new layout I created for Just Nick this month!

This time I used the Loopy Circle Background cut file. You probably know by now how much I love my circles, so obviously I had to use this cut file :).



I used the beautiful new Bohemian Dreams collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I cut the design from white textured card stock and partially backed the circles with different patterned papers. I didn't want to back the full circles to allow for some dimension.



I had to dig out some photos of myself, which I don't have a lot of, because this collection is so feminine! I'm a sucker for all things feminine but I've never liked having my photo taken...Anyway, I've found a couple of old pictures, this is one of them. In fact it's a part of a series which is why I did not add any journaling to this particular layout. I will add it to another layout using a different photo from this series.


I glued down my cut file, only attaching the parts where you see patterned paper. This way the rest of the cut file lifts off the page a little. I adhered my photo on top and embellished around it. For this I used die cuts, chip boards, stickers, tags, labels and a flair button. I tucked some of these behind the photo in several layers, some I glued onto my photo directly. I love layers!

For my title I used some old American Crafts alpha thickers, I'm not sure which collection these belonged to.



To finish off my layout, I added a few drops of blue ink and stamped my date.


It's a simple layout, but I like how it turned out. I hope you like it too!

Thank you for stopping by today! I'll be back with new inspiration next month!

Have a wonderful day,

History - DT layout for Just Nick

Hi there scrappy friends,

This week the Just Nick DT is delivering fall themed inspirations to you. 

My contribution is a layout for which I used one of my favorite Just Nick cut files (one that I used many times before), the Leaf Cluster. So gorgeous, am I right?!


I paired this awesome cut file with my favorite fall collection of all time, Golden Days by Fancy Pants. It's a collection from 2016 and I am so glad I bought loads of extras because really there's nothing prettier in my opinion! The colors and patterns are beautiful and the combination of colors is just so unique. I love everything non-traditional!


First, I arranged the cut file in the Studio program like I wanted; one bigger one in the top left and a smaller one in the right bottom corner. I then cropped these and cut them from white card stock.

Next up, backing the cuts with patterned papers. I'll be honest, I had a hard time choosing papers because I wanted to use all papers, each side! It pretty much never happens that I like every single paper in a collection but these are so gorgeous, all of them! 


Once done, I glued down the top one and added foam adhesive to the bottom one so I could tuck my photo behind it a little. By the way, my photo was totally not taken in the fall, it is from July this year. We took a day trip to the amazing Oak Tree Plantation not so far from New Orleans. I have all these photos of the gorgeous oak trees and I thought they fit fall colors and collections better. I have already scrapped a couple with the Creekside collection from 1Canoe2.


For my title I chose History, because the plantation has so much history! We took a guided tour around the main house and had such an awesome time. Our guide was a local girl, all dressed up in a costume and she shared everything there is to know about the owners and life at the plantation. It was all so interesting, Maxim didn't complain for a second that he is bored. He even asked questions from our guide. Also, on a totally unrelated note, I love love love the Southern accent, it's so charming!



I wrote my journaling on a tag that I tucked behind the photo. I added a gold leaf clip, a gold acetate word and a flair button. This one I am particularly happy about because I never in my life thought I would be able to use a USA map button ha! It was a part of a set I bought from the lovely Shelley at A flair for buttons ages ago. Which reminds me I am running low on flair buttons...


I stamped the date on a label and attached this below the photo. I tucked in a couple of die cuts under my photo and glued some on top of it. 

I added some gold ink splatters and done!

I hope you'll be inspired to create fall layouts now! |Go get crafty!
Thanks for stopping by!
