Hi there Just Nick fans! Suzanna here today to share with you another spring flower layout featuring the Spiral Background file. Yesterday Marcia shared her blooms with the background file and today I happen to be sharing my flowers using the same file.

Just as Marcia did on her layout which you saw yesterday, I used the digital cut file rather large as a background for my layout using white cardstock. The file creates a perfect bed of flowers upon which to house all my other goodies.

As I had pre-cut the file without a specific plan and was away at a crop when this layout was created, I had to use "old fashioned" die cuts for my leaves. Were I home or had I had my Silhouette with me, I would have done just as Marcia did and used the same leaves file. What I love so much about scrapping is that the sky is the limit. Despite the same files and similar themed pictures, our layouts look so different. Neither one of us had any idea the other was using the same file.

I used golden texture paste in, around and behind bits of the digital cut file for some added depth and texture to the page. The way it compliments and brings out the other gold elements on the page worked well.


I had pre-cut the new alpha that Nicole created (I love the alphas! they are some of the best alphas out there!) but it was a tad busy with all the other bits and bobs I had on the layout. I will save those for another layout and went with these letters from Fancy Pants instead.

Thanks for stopping into the Just Nick blog today! I hope your Spring is off to a blooming good start!
