Beautiful layout Nichol:) So happy to have the layout video back!

This has got to be one of my favorite layouts from your awesome collection. Although my favorite colors are pink and red I prefer the "off" version of each color and who doesn't like any shade of aqua! As far as the hearts are concerned can you tell me, would it work if I use an older metal die from sizzix? I don't have any of the Tim Holtz collection but a ton of the old school dies. I'd like to pull them out as they cost a ton back then. My OLW for this year is "re-purpose" as in use all my older stash and actually walk on the treadmill instead of having it look like abstract art in the family room!! hee, hee,hee...

Your videos are great!

I have used this technique many times with my old school red steel rule dies! ;)

Great layout! Love those hearts...still need to go make some! It also would be great to do this technique with some egg dies for Easter too! Thanks Nichol for the inspiration!


Nicole you are my hero!!! Whenever I watch one of your video's I believe in myself and that I can be creative. LOL You make everything digestible and doable. I Love you style and your ability to pull it all together.

Thanks so much for the video's.

Love it, Nichol! So glad this series is back!


Awesome job as always Nichol!
Could have used this video yesterday LOL
I wanted to use an Ali stamp on my LO and it was too dark a paper...used the vellum trick but it was covering up my whole paper...not what I wanted. Didn't want to mess with white staz on so I changed the paper which ended up to be a better pick anyway but thanks for the reminder of white embossing (slapping forehead and "Oh yeahing" LOL)
I always get such inspiration from watching you work through your LO! TFS!

Thanks so much for these videos. I learn so much and get inspired to make lovely layouts. You are one of my favorite designers!


Great video and layout as always Nichol!! Always so inspiring!! Thanks for doing these again! I'm sure that they are a lot of work but we all really appreciate them!

Beautiful page, Nichol! I'm lovin' those ribbon hearts and diecut title. You always make me want to scrap right away, after watching one of your videos!


Love this layout Nichol! Thanks for the reminder on how to use up ribbon scraps - I remember you showed the technique before but totally forgot to try it out! This time I've written it down in my 'scrapbooking journal' so I don't forget! (Hubby is re-working my scraproom as we speak, so may not get to it for a few days/weeks). I can only imagine how much time these videos take you to put together, and want you to know how grateful and appreciative I am that you do take the time to do them! I learn so, so much from you! Thanks again!!!!


So fun to have the videos back! And just love this page! Love the red gingham with the aqua and kraft - I would never have thought of that! And those ribbon hearts - just stunning!!


LOVE your layout! and thanks for showing how you made the hearts!
So SO SO glad you are doing videos again
I have missed them!

Great layout as always and thanks for introducing me to the delights of Kerri! Off now to see if there is a uk source for the studio ae stamps!


My week is complete! I enjoy your videos so much. If I can make a suggestion, could you make a video flipping through an album. I watched your video and Shimelle's video from true scrap, and I woul like to see how your albums flow. Please consider it...thanks.


love this! can i ask you a random question? I love and adore your stuff! I am currently in the market for a new and upgraded printer and i see that you love yours...can you tell me is the ink/paper expensive since you scrap so much? I am a bit afraid of such a big purchase and not loving it! thanks for your inspiration!!


Hi NIchol!!!
I am LOVING this layout!! I remember your video of those little bags, super cute! Anyway, off to see the vid.
ps btw LOVING the length of your videos! More minutes of yumminess!!!!
Dayami :)


Nichol - this is one of my all time favorite layouts of yours. I LOVE it. Please never stop these great instructional videos. And they will NEVER be too long. Love hearing your thought process. I'll be making some ribbon hearts tomorrow, they are so pretty and versatile. :)


This layout is stunning. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful ideas with us and particularly for details on how to create those ribbon hearts. I had a Big Shot for Christmas and cannot wait to give them a go.

Stunning layout, thanks for the time and effort you put into making these videos for us. So very inspiring.


Oh Nicol what an amazing layout. I absolutely LOVE this one.


I really enjoyed this video. Any chance you can add a link for the date stamp you used? I am the worst at remembering to date layouts and I think using a stamp like that is a great idea!

Sue Alg

What a wonderful layout. You always remind me that I must use more stamps on my layouts. Your videos are terrific.
