    Welcome to the 2023 edition of Love Our Designers (LOD)
    This event isn't a traditional challenge in that there aren't any real rules.
    It’s a fun event to scrap with products from a fave designer or try a new (to you) designer. It’s all about having fun and celebrating the uniqueness of all of our Lilypad Designers!

    So why am I crushing on NBK Design?
    Well, when I think of Nicole's designs I think anything is possible!
    She seems to create out of this world, imaginative and beautiful collections!
    They are always full of anything and everything you could need to be creative - from Photoshop tools to 'traditional but full of variety' wordart packs and an assortment of elements, both as indivdiual pieces and pre-clustered as 'Artsy Bits and Pieces'.
    'Magic Lights', 'Loopilaloozas' and 'Out of the Box Frames' are some of my favourite fun extras but I'm always blown away by the textures and details in her huge collections, and especially by how she can combine both realism and fantasy!

    I can get a bit intimidated if I'm honest by just how big the packs are at first, but all the seperate previews in the store are great because they let you see just how the Bundles are such great value, and you have the ability to buy different optioned packs or separate parts of each collection. Nicole also often posts 'unboxing videos' and puts these links in her product description if you want to see exactly what is in the downloads!

    I always feel like more of an artist than a scrapper using her pieces, if that makes sense. Like this layout to me is more art than scrapbook page and Nicole made everything I used (apart from my bird, of course).

    This page has some of my fave goodies like the Out of the Box Frames which give such a cool effect to your photos, and the Magic Lights, that can be used in so many ways with blend modes but this is pretty much just slapped on the page, those rays at the top above the photos and to the left of the title, it's really 'no effort magic'! -

    And the artsy blended templates (and full albums of Storybooks!) in the NBK store make stepping into Nicole's artsy style so much easier than you'd think! If you can use a clipping mask, you can make the same kind of scrapbook art! She has done so much of the work and everything coordinates easily and beautifully!

    Now it's your turn to play with her creations. Create a page with (mostly) NBK Designs. Explore her store and see what catches your eye....or if you already own some of her goodies, pull them out!

    Please make sure you meet the TLP gallery guidelines of at least 50% TLP product.

    Post your completed page in NBK Design's designer gallery
    and then come back here and share in this thread!


    Thanks Christa!

    Be sure to check out our LOVE Our Designers event daily since you never know WHO is going to be featured when! And who knows, the designer(s) may pop in here and there with special surprises and interactions while we are scrapping!!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one to get intimidated by the size of her packs. I admit I have only dipped my toe in to her wonderful designs with a few small packs here and there. One of my fave packs of hers that I have is

    Nicole has been one of my favorites since LONG before she arrived here... I was beyond ecstatic when she came here, because at that time, there were not so many artsy designers here... Go Nicole!!!!

    I was so honoured when Nicole invited me to join her team last year. She has a fabulous creative range from clean and simple in the Easy Peasy collections all the way to totally artsy.

    Here's a sample of some of the pages I've made this year using NBK Designs products.

    Her BYOC packs make a great starting point like you showed because they will always work with a variety of coordinated products and her frame packs are all awesome but i especially love the torn edges and mix of fasteners in this one!

    Nicole is one of my favorite designers! So much versatility in each collection, I use them over and over.

    Here's one of my favorite pages I made for a slow scrap.

    I love being able to create a layout from scratch, layering and using all of her fabulous bits and pieces. Her collections are so versatile and you have so many options to purchase the whole collection or just items you will use in your scrapping, so really take the time to check out her amazing designs. You will fall in love.

    Nicole is simply amazing! I'm so honored to be on her team.
    And I agree with Justine, when she says she feels like an artist when using NBK-Design!
