Perfect for fall, nephews and so much more.

Hello from a local girl! I'm Stacey Atchley, member of Nikki's Local Design Team and I'm thrilled to have the chance to show you a couple of projects I've finished using some of Nikki's awesome new paper lines!

Having worked in our family scrapbook store for nearly six years now, one thing I'm constantly amazed by is the lack of papers that will fit a "boy" themed page very well. For a girl with two of the most handsome little nephews on the planet, I'm always struggling to find just the right papers to enhance the thousands of amazing pictures we have taken of them over the past five years. (Thousands is probably an understatement. If Drew & Jackson understood what the word paparazzi meant, they would probably think they were surrounded by them at most times). Lucky for me and all of you looking to create "boy" themed pages, two of Nikki's newest lines - Tree Love and My Friend Birdie - fit the bill perfectly.

"Drew and Me"

For this layout, I used papers and stickers from the My Friend Birdie line. One of my favorite additions to Nikki's collection are the tiny letter stickers. So versatile and easy to use, and most importantly...plenty of vowels! And of course, another added bonus is that the Bread{less} Tabs, Craft Flags and Canvas Buttons seamlessly tie into all of Nikki's lines!



My next layout features papers and stickers from the Tree Love line.

"Every Second Of Every Hour..."

Again, I think I've proven that I am madly in love with the tiny letter stickers! They make incorporating a large title into a small space not only easy, but eye catching. I think it's probably safe to say that this is my favorite line to date. Love the colors, love the Cut-Ups, love how easy it is to use!

With summer winding down, and autumn right around the corner, these two amazing lines can help make any of your fall projects a breeze.

Great layouts and I agree with you about the lack of "boy" stuff. I too have two of the greatest nephews and find it very frustrating sometimes. I will have to look long and hard at these paper lines. thanks for the inspiration.
