What a GREAT LO!! Love it!


Wow this is a spectacular layout! You can see that you enjoyed making. I also am enjoying my layouts so much more now.
Hope your "date" is very special.

Gosh, you are the energizer bunny, Nichol! I can barely get one card done and you've done all this in a short week!! I love this layout and what I love most about your layouts is usually you have more than one photo on the page. Oh really cute stuff!!


Woohoo, for the date with Hubby!

This page is stunning! So many great details and I love all of the manufacturers you put into this. I tend to have a hard time doing that, so thanks for this page.

Terrific Layout! On another note, I have only had my machine a short time and am having a problem that I suspect you can advise very quickly.
It simply isn't making nice clear cuts and about half of what I cut is not totally cut out. I read and followed the directions to cut twice thinking surely this would help the situation.....NOPE. In fact when I double cut the cuts were in slightly different places, and no I didn't move anything.
So my next step is to replace the blade, thinking that I must have gotten one that wasn't too sharp to begin with. I have only cut things twice, and surely a blade lasts longer than that?? When I looked at the store I noticed 2 choices. All I would need is the inside with the blade, all my caps etc are fine. Can you advise what I might try, pretty please. I am gone for the weekend, so when we are both back from fun...perhaps you will be able to answer?
Generous Thank-yous abound!

Oh I love this page design! Super banner and title work!

Love the layered banner and those corduroy buttons I've been seeing you use so much of lately--Gotta get me some of those! Hope you enjoyed your date night. I can't wait to hear how you liked it.

Hey there! I'm not Nicole, but if you've tried everything and it still doesn't work (I'm assuming the blade is pushed down tight and has the notch on the house unit inserted in the machine correctly), my girlfriend experience this issue with her new Silhouette and she finally called the company who sent her a new blade with housing unit and it worked beautifully. I think on rare occasions they're just faulty, but you might trying calling them to see if they have some ideas. I've always found their tech guys over there extremely helpful and very friendly. Good luck! Once you get it working, I think you're going to be head over heals in love! :)

Love the LO. I signed up for that class too! I didn't make any Layouts last year, only cards! I'm still working on my 2nd sketch.

Very nice!

I can't sit back quietly and watch your layouts anymore. I have to shout "you amaze me." You do incredible work. The way you can put a layout together and make it look so complete like it was waiting for you to bring it to life. No pressure or anything but I always hope you show us your LOs every time you post.

What a fantastic layout!! I found your blog through the Whiff of Joy website. I'm not sure if you participate in challenges, but I am on a design team for Scrap and Stamp Saturday challenges. It's a scrapbook challenge every Saturday which requires at least 1 stamp on your layout. We would love to have you play along some time!

Joy Taylor

Super sweet Nichol, your boy is just adorable, love this layout and the use of the silhouette, I need to use mine more.


This page it´s SO CUTE !!! You are amazing Nichol!! All of your projects are fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

I love this page. Did you create the title yourself? Or is it QK. Thanks Rosalie

The title is from the Silhouette Store. House of 3 Design, I believe.
