Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique with you today. Last week my son and husband were celebrating their respective birthdays and I decided to scrap some of the photos I took straight away. The "Confetti Wishes" collection from Pink Paislee had just arrived on my doorstep and was still lying on my desk so all I had to do was print the photos and choose one of the many awesome cut files from the JustNick store. As I love to use background cut files I concentrated on those and in the end decided on the "Heart is Full Background" cut file. 

This is the layout I made:

and this is the "Heart is Full Background" cut file I used. Isn't is awesome?!

When I had my Silhouette ready to start cutting this cut file I was in doubt whether to cut it from white cardstock and fill all the hearts separately with patterned paper or cut it from a multi colored paper. I decided on this last option and added two large squares of patterned paper behind the cut file so the background wouldn't be so terribly white. I really love how this turned out. 

Here are a few close-ups: 

I love adding a bit of journaling, but often forget about it. For this layout I remembered to leave a bit of room for my text, which I had already typed and printed beforehand.

There are so many lovely die-cuts in this Pink Paislee collection but I didn't want to cover up the entire cut file and made sure not to add too many. 

Like always I wanted to add a bit of stitching to my page and used my sewing machine to stitch the outer circle of the cut file. 

Although this page has a lot of "pinks" in it for a boys layout I'm very happy with the result. 

Thank you so much for stopping by the JustNick blog today! For this cut file or any of the other awesome cut files, please hop over to the JustNick store!

Wishing you a wonderful and creative week!
