Nikki Sivils

The Sketch-a-Thon is going on all month over at Sketches for You.  Have you played yet?  Nikki Sivils is one of the guest designers, and she generously shared some of her fall product with the designers.  I have never worked with her product before, and I had an absolute blast with her designs.  I used every little bit of what she sent as you'll see!  Nikki gave us a sketch to work with for a layout:

First off, a layout of my niece Amy's cute kiddos in a corn maze:

For this layout, I used one of Nikki's round mats and cut out the center.  It was easy enough then to pop the pictures on the back of the mat.  I used half of that circle on the top of the layout.  The little piece of ric-rac is actually a piece that I fussy cut from a border strip.  That CUTE little beaver is also fussy cut from paper.

My next project is a card:

Do you see that bread tag?  Nikki designed those and they are called bread(less) tags.  What a cute little element.  Those buttons are great, too.  Kind of a twill fabric on top - just a perfect touch!

My last project was a mini album using my favorite go-to album, the My Creations 6x6 Memory Showcase album from CTMH.  The front and back cover are almost the same, so I am showing you the front:

Nikki makes some grat papers, don't you think? Head on over to Sketches for You , to see what the rest of the DT has done!

Items used: Nikki Sivils Tree Love papers, bread(less) tag, buttons, journaling tags, and stickers; Imaginisce Hot Rocks and i-rock tool; bulk hemp; May Arts ribbons; Fancy Pants buttons and clips TPC Studios metal; CTMH memory showcase, buttons, waxy flax, and pins
