You Are Awesome | Just Nick Studio

Hi everyone!
 Today I am sharing a new design team layout for Just Nick Studio that I recently created using one of the awesome background cut files!
As well as the Wheels in Motion cut file, I also used the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection....I just love this collection for slightly older boys and it goes perfectly with that cut file!
This is the cut file I used on my layout, the Wheels in Motion cut file. I cut it from a light green cardstock and then backed lots of the open circles with different patterned papers and my photo. I then used foam pop dots to pop the cut file up off the background cardstock.
I had some cute Project Life cards laying around on my desk that went perfectly with this layout so I used some to tuck underneath the cut file and one also became my title.  
I added some black thread and some black mist to add some different textures and to finish my layout. 
Thank you so much for joining me on my blog today!
Be sure to check out the Just Nick store for loads of new cut files that have been uploaded!
Happy creating!

Do What You Love | January 2017 Main and Add-On Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!

 Today I am sharing a new design team scrapbook layout for Hip Kit Club using the January 2017 Main and Add-On kits

I recently had a huge stack of layouts that needed to be put into some albums so I decided to take a photo of the pile so that I could document my love for scrapbooking.

 I went back through some of the past months cut files on the Hip Kit Club website for something suitable to my theme and found the Love word inside the rectangle from the September 2016 cut files. I cut this out 3 times using 3 different coloured cardstocks from the Cardstock kit and then backed these with some of the gorgeous exclusive Project Life cards from the Project Life kit! 

The cute exclusive 'Do What You Love' wood veneer was the perfect title for this layout. I also cut that gorgeous heart out from one of the exclusive Project Life cards to use as an embellishment. I embellished my layout further with lots of the 1canoe2 American Crafts Hazelwood cork and sticker embellishments. The background paper I have used to back the layout against is the dark blue plaid design from the exclusive 'Frolic' collection. I love how it looks checkered once you put the white over it!

 Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today! I hope you are inspired to try some of our cut files and to get creating with your January 2017 Hip Kits

Happy creating!

The Beach | January 2017 Main and Add-On Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!
Today I am back with you and I am excited to be sharing another design team layout for Hip Kit Club that I have created using the January 2017 Main and Add-On kits!the-beach
My Mum knows me so well, she knows how much I love these beach huts, so when she was travelling in Wales, UK last year, she was at the beach and there were loads of them! Of course she took a photo for me to scrapbook!the-beach-detail
To go with the theme of my photo, I decided to cut a large triangle from the exclusive triangle paper to replicate the triangle in the roofs of the beach houses. I cut it out by hand and then machine stitched around the edge to add some texture. I also added a thin strip of the coral cardstock down the left side to bring that coral colour out a little more.  the-beach-detail-2
I added lots of the cork embellishments from the American Crafts 'One Canoe Two' brand plus lots of the ephemera from the Moonstruck collection by Pink Paislee. The enamel triangle shapes also from the One Canoe Two brand were perfect to use with this paper and went with my theme perfectly too!the-beach-detail-3
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you will pull out your January 2017 Hip Kits and create something pretty?! Why not give a design like my layout a try?
Happy creating!

Hugs | Just Nick Studio

Hi everyone!
Today I am back with you to share a new scrapbook layout created for Just Nick Studio using one of the cute new Love themed background cut files!
I used the cute Pink Paislee 'Pen Pals' collection to create this layout, one of my favourite things to do is to back cut files with all different patterned papers, this range was ideal to do this! 
The cut file that I used on this layout is the Cross My Heart Background cut file found in the Just Nick store. I cut it from white cardstock and backed different patterned papers behind it. Once I had all the papers backed, I used some foam/3D tape to adhere the cut file to the background paper. I really like the dimension and shadow effect it gives to my page. 
I scrapped a photo from last year of my 2 handsome sons! They are mostly best friends! As an added effect, I used some foam Thickers for my title and to embellish further! 
One of the Pen Pals chipboard frames was a perfect addition to frame my photo and draw the eye in! Puffy stickers and chipboard stickers are great embellishments to enhance layouts.
I love how this layout turned out! Check out all the gorgeous new cut files in the Just Nick store today! 
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

Follow Your Dreams | January 2017 Main and Add-On Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!
Today I am back with you to share a new scrapbook layout for Hip Kit Club I created using the stunning January 2017 Main and Add-On kits!
follow-your-dreams
As soon as I saw those amazing One Canoe Two rub-on butterflies from the Hazelwood collection...I knew exactly what design I wanted to go with this week! I used up a whole sheet of the butterfly rub-ons, rubbing them all onto white cardstock first and then individually fussy cutting them all out! I started placing them inside my heart at first but then I quickly decided I liked it better with the butterflies following the heart shape instead. I added a couple of the feathers from the Pink Paislee Moonstruck ephemera pack also.   follow-your-dreams-detail
Watch my process video below to see how my layout came together....


I machine stitched around the heart shape, making sure to go through the butterflies at the same time. I then curled up the wings of the butterflies for dimension. follow-your-dreams-detail-2
The Hip Kit Club exclusive wood veneer title 'Follow Your Dreams' was perfect for this layout of my niece out in the garden just wandering around and exploring. I also added the little 'Wander More' puffy sticker from the Pink Paislee Moonstruck collection as it was so fitting to this layout! A few extra small embellishments finished off my layout...I wanted to keep most of the focus on the photo and the pretty butterfly heart!follow-your-dreams-detail-3I

I hope you have had a chance to create with your January 2017 kits? If you haven't yet, why not give this idea a try? I would love to see what you create! Tag me @tarrahm on Instagram when you share your creations and I will be sure to leave you some love!

Thankful For You | December 2016 Main and Add-On kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi there friends! 

 Today I am sharing a new design team scrapbook layout for Hip Kit Club using the gorgeous December 2016 Main and Add-On kits

For this week, I was inspired by the pink couch/sofa ephemera piece from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away ephemera pack! I wanted to make my photo look as though we were all sitting on the couch! This then made me want to pull out all the hot pink items from the December 2016 Main and Add-On kits

I cut the pretty wildflower cut files designed by Bea Valint from white cardstock and layered them underneath to break a little of the pink background. I love how it softens the layout a little bit. I used some of the My Minds Eye pretty gold mirror acrylic stickers to embellish...I love the little bit of sparkle they bring to the layout. 

Some small splats of white mist finish off my layout...be sure to check out my process video to see how this layout came together!

Love You | December 2016 Main and Add-On Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi friends!
 Today I am back with a new design team layout for Hip Kit Club using the December 2016 Main and Add-On kitslove-you-1 
I tried something a little different from my usual clean style this week by adding some soft touches of mixed media using the Echo Park circle stencil from the December 2016 Color Add-On kit and the Crushed Coral Shimmerz from the October 2016 Color Add-On kit.love-you-1-detail
After the Shimmerz paste was dry, I added a few splats of the Heidi Swapp Sweet Mint mist and also let that dry. I then cut up some of the squares from the Pink Paislee/Paige Evans Take Me Away paper and began to layer them all over my page.love-you-1-detail-2I also added lots of the Take Me Away ephemera as layering pieces behind my photo. My title was created using the white foam thicker words.
My process video is below if you would like to watch how this layout came together!
I chose to scrapbook a photo from my wedding day 13 years..the black and white photo goes so nicely with all the pretty soft colours from the products included in the December 2016 Main and Add-On kitslove-you-1-detail-3
Thank you so much for joining me on my blog today! I hope I have inspired you to create with your December 2016 Hip kits!

Happy Aussie Day 2016 | Just Nick Studio

Hi there friends!
 Today I am sharing a new design team layout for Just Nick Studio featuring one of my favourite background cut files found under 'Our Cut Files'!  It's Australia Day here in Oz next week so I decided to document one of last year's photos from that day of my youngest holding our flag before we hung it on our balcony. 
The Bits and Pieces star background was a perfect background cut file to use as a base for this layout. I tried to slightly replicate our flag in the papers I backed the cut file with and I am happy with how it turned out.
I used lots of different Thickers that I have had in my stash forever to make up my title! I also used other bits and pieces from my stash to embellish my layout as well. I love to use up stuff I have been hoarding forever...it feels great to finally find a home for it!   
Those chipboard stars are from Pink Paislee and the flair and washi tape are from a small embellishment store in Australia. I included some hidden journalling on my layout this time, its on the tag tucked into that little bag.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! Do you have a celebration coming up that you want to document? I am sure there would be an awesome cut file or 2 in the Just Nick store that would suit your theme perfectly! Check them out, they are gorgeous! 
Happy creating!

Back to School | December 2016 Main and Add-On Kits | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone!

Today I am back to share a new layout for Hip Kit Club using the gorgeous December 2016 Main and Add-On kits!



 Here in Australia the children go back to school at the end of January, after an extended school holiday break so today I was inspired to create a layout using last years back to school photo. 

The paper from the Take Me Away collection with the grid (on the 'B' side) reminded me of a school book and there were quite a few elements in the Take Me Away ephemera pack that suited the 'Back to School' theme! 

Here is my process video on YouTube of how I created this layout! 


I cut out the year using the numbers cut file designed by Zinia from the Echo Park Dots and Stripes paper on my layout! Those black and white chipboard Thickers are my current favourite! I love how striking they look against the muted colours included in the December 2016 Hip Kits

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Happy creating!

Naughty or Nice | Just Nick Studio

Hi there friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I am guessing you may have lots of photos to scrapbook from Christmas so today I have some inspiration for you using one of the Christmas title cut files in the Just Nick Studio store called Naughty or Nice!
I used the super cute Mistletoe Kisses collection from Simple Stories together with the Naughty or Nice cut file! I love the cute elements included in this collection!
Below is the image of the cut file I used!
As there was lots of green going in on this layout I decided to cut the title from red cardstock...I feel it helps to balance out some of the colours. 
Just before Christmas, my boys and I went to a Christmas party at a good friends house. She had an awesome photo booth set up, my boys loved playing in there, so I just had to snap a few pics of course!
I hope you will get some time to create over the Christmas break? Why not check out all the cut files available in the Just Nick store? They really do help to enhance your projects!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!
Happy creating!
