SUPPLIES: [PICADILLY] C-PIC-3530 Collection Pack, PIC-3532 Element Stickers, PIC-3533 Alpha Stickers, PIC-3543 Layered Stickers, PIC-3541 Designer Chipboard Stickers.

We love the two projects Nichol created with our new Picadilly collection.  In her layout, she created a scene on to top portion of her layout which not only provides an amazing place for embellishments but also space for journaling.  She balanced what could be a top-heavy design by placing a block of photos directly underneath.  Nichol then used leftovers from her layout to create a fantastic card that is sure to brighten the lucky recipient’s day!

Nichol is known for her amazing videos and we’re thrilled that she took the time to make one for us featuring her two Picadilly projects.

Thanks, Nicol for sharing your time and talents with us – we’re thrilled to having you joining us this month on the BG blog!
