Good Monday morning! I'm excited to get this week started because I've got a week's worth of projects to share with you! So, make sure you stop back by each weekday to see what's new.
Over the weekend I shared a project for the Just Nick Studio / Clique Kits blog hop. If you missed that post and page, and the details of how to enter the giveaway, you can find it here. I had so much fun pairing the kit contents and exclusive cut files that I couldn't stop creating and combining the two! So, I'm sharing another page that resulted from this team up on the Just Nick blog and here, today.
I used the bannered heart design, from the exclusive set of cut files, to cover the majority of the background. I chose to forgo the banner style ends, and instead cut them off for a clean and straight edge. The resulting cuts were sized at approximately 7.75"x1.5". I cut five of them, from white cardstock, to fill my background. Layering them atop of one another and under my picture creates cohesion throughout the design.
The open hearts were a great place to introduce lots of color and pattern from the kit papers into my design. I even used the included sequin mix to back some of my hearts and add a little extra detail and shimmer.
Some foam mounted stickers, stictching and a Thicker title were the finishing touches atop my background design.
The combination of the Hot Mess kit and Just Nick designs is a pretty perfect pairing, wouldn't you agree? The are both so full of product, design and versatility, that I've got one more page combining the two that I will share with you later in the month.
I hope to see you back here tomorrow as I start to share the projects I've made with My Creative Scrapbook's February Main kit!
