Hi JustNick friends!!

It's Monique here today sharing another "Valentine's" layout, this time one with my kids in it instead of my hubby. I totally love the new "Heart Background 6" cut file and knew I had to use it. I chose the Heart Day collection from Crate Paper that I bought ages ago and of which I had 90% left (I love it too much to use it, how silly is that?) and an awesome journaling card from Paper Issues.

The new "Heart Background 6" cut file:

Before I used this cut file I copied it 3 times, so I had 4 of it, placed them in a square and welded them together. Then I resized it to fit my 12" x 12" sized background paper. Doesn't it look great?! 

I created two clusters on my page: one with the photo in the left bottom corner:

I matted the photo on three different pieces of patterned paper, added a little card with an acrylic heart stapled to it, added a text sticker and a puffy heart sticker and of course a bit of machine stitching:

The other cluster I placed in the top right corner. This cluster consists of the fun flamingo journaling card, two paper clips, an acrylic tag, two die-cut hearts and two puffy hearts. I finished the cluster off with another machine stitched line:

At the top and bottom of the layout I added a strip of light pink washi tape with golden hearts. Love washi tape! 

When my page was almost done, I added little golden enamel hearts and glued these randomly in the hearts of the cut file.

After adding a few light pink paint splatters I decided my layout was done! Hope you like it!

Did you see all the gorgeous love themed cut files in the JustNick store? These will look good on any project!! Can't wait to see what you'll create with them!
