Tuesday Inspiration ~ Paper Piecings by Nikki

Good Morning, I am here to share some Tuesday Inspiration with you. 

Today I have a cute two page layout I made using the ABC file at Paper Piecings by Nikki.   Just click the links to be taken to her page or the direct file. 

I do more cards than I do Layouts, but this file was to cute not to try and do a layout of some sort.  I tell you this because I think the layout still needs some work and something added to it to help make it pop.  However, everything I tried to add to it made it seem cluttered and distracting from the cute bears. 

I tried something different with the edges of my photo mats and the borders of the layouts.  Rather than just a straight cut or a scalloped cut, I decided I wanted to do an angle cut.  While i like the look, it did take me some time to get the two pieces cut just right so they lined up the way I wanted them too.  

The back ground paper I used is from Stampin' UP, thou I have had it for a while and could not tell you the name or the stack it came from.  (sorry). 

Here are a few pictures of the layouts. 

I did add bows to the photo mats and some bling on the bears.  I am setting this layout aside and will keep looking at it to try to fill the gaps.  Thou, I wonder, am I trying to add to much to a layout?  Does every little space really need to be covered?  


  1. I think you did a great job Kimberly! Sometimes it's hard to know if you have a page finished until you actually put your pics on it! Once you add your pics you might not want anything else on this page, or maybe you will just want a simple title. I think the bling and the ribbon added a nice touch!

  2. I love your two page layout, I think white space is fine, down the road you may want to have space to journal.

    Cute layout.
