Nicky Richards – Let’s Go

We recently put out a call for some guest designers to add some wonderful projects to our gallery of ideas. We were bowled over with the response and have some lovely ladies lined up over the next few months to share their creativity here on our blog and of course on our Instagram and Facebook pages. First up with have Nicky Richards joining us.

Hi, it’s Nicky here and I’ve had the pleasure of using the Globe cut file. I wanted to add mixed media to the cut file so I added clear gesso to it before I removed it from my silhouette cutting mat. Tip, make sure it is totally dry before taking it off the mat, don’t be impatient like me! 
I wanted the globe to be the main part of the page so I created the offset of the globe and cut it in black.

I used Heidi Swapp colour shine in Patina to my wet globe and then set aside to dry.  The paper I used is Sunny Days by Maggie Holmes for Crate paper – I loved the sayings and little postcards. This paper needed a prominent foreground though or it could overpower the photos and this globe was perfect.

I backed the black offset inside the globe with paper from Pink fresh studio. 
My photos are printed very small and I added a minimal amount of embellishments. I finished my video recording of my page making process (which you can see here) and then decided to use Nuvo drops to add the details to the stand of the globe.

I loved using the Globe cut file and I really hope you do too! I’m looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations with it and don’t forget to tag us on Facebook and Instagram! 

Happy globe trotting, Nicky xx

COVID 19 UPDATE – Unfortunately I am currently unable to process any further physical cut file orders for at least the next 2 weeks.  The logistics of dealing with the new and necessary restrictions, while also homeschooling my children and caring for my Dad, mean that it is becoming more and more difficult and the restrictions may even become tighter as we seek to control this awful situation.  Obviously I’m keeping a close watch on the news so that I can start processing and posting again as soon as possible.  You can still browse and order but they will not go out in the post until there is a further update.

Digital orders can still be purchased and instantly downloaded as normal and remain unaffected by the restrictions.  However, there is a slight glitch on the website that means some devices are duplicating items as they are added to the basket.  You can remove them in the final screen and I can obviously organise speedy refunds for any that slip through the net.

Thank you so much for your continued support for Pretty My Page.  Every order and message is so important to me but even more so now.  Wishing you all health and happiness x
