Hello everyone!  This is Janis blogging here at Nikki Sivils once again!!!  Welcome to another showcasing edition (this is my fourth actually - - I have done Willow Bee, Dan the Record Man, and My Friend Birdie - - showcasing is sooo much fun I hope to be able to do it monthly!!!!) and this time I'll be showcasing Tree Love with a twist - - I incorporated paper twines on all my three layouts!!!!


While my usual scrapbooking subjects on my NS layouts are my kids and my nephews, I couldn't help but use Tree Love on my recent photos with my friends.  Here's the first one:

Created a mini shadow "window" here using pop-dots: 

Paper Twine Idea #1:  Loop paper twines on your punched paper edges!!!

Here's my second layout:

Lookie loo, Beaver's holding a Craft Flag!!!! 

Paper Twine Idea #2:  Make tassels out of paper twines!!!

Here's my third layout, this time it's just me LOL!!!!  It's supposed to be funny because there's a backstory to it.  ;o)

Paper Twine Idea #3:  Make titles out of paper twines!!!


Over at, I have written also a short article on my scrapbooking style and I used Nikki Sivils Collections on my projects!!!  If you want to read about it and see my NS projects, just click HERE.  ;o)

Hope I inspired you to play with Tree Love along with the other NS paper collections!!!  

Have fun creating!!!!
