the beginning.

I wanted to share a page I made for Back to School that went up on the Just Nick blog a few days ago:
 I fell in love with this particular cut when I first saw it and was pretty excited to use it.  If you notice in the shop this cut is square--I changed the dimensions to make it fit my creation size 8 1/2" x 11".  I then cut it out.

I then wanted to back it with different pieces of coordinating paper.  Where do you find THAT many pieces?  I went to my drawer of 6" x 6" paper pads and grabbed one I thought fit!  I then used the cut out pieces as templates and traced on the back and cut just larger than the lines.  Yes, it took a while but was SO worth the effort!

I figured that the different pieces of paper and cut that I used were pretty expressive so I wanted to keep the embellishments simple.  I just added some sequins and other things that were lying on my desk and that was it!

here is what the original cut; Geometric Background looks like:
So fun right?
Thanks for the visit today!  Hope you have a wonderful one!
