I selected this design in particular, as I knew it would make a fun graphic pop against the painterly lines of my background patterned paper. With a colorful, and somewhat busy backdrop, I quickly decided that the cut file should be cut from black cardstock. Doing so, ensures that the designs are not lost amongst the layers and colors of the page, as well as reinforcing the triangular placement of elements.
I cut two of the single floral designs, one slightly bigger than the other. The biggest of the two florals is tucked along the left side of my photo and accented with a chipboard flower underneath. The open spaces left in the petals and leaves, allow for a peek at the layered elements below.
The smaller of the two single florals is nestled along the right bottom corner of my photo. It's placement helps accent the page title.
The duo of florals sits along the upper right edge of the page. Again, it is accented with chipboard flowers, but this time they sit on top of the cut design. A couple of fussy cut butterflies add even more texture and interest to this section of the page.

I hope this layout inspires you to use your Just Nick designs to make a statement on your next scrapbook layout!
Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!

Hello JustNick friends!
I tend to scrap smaller photos and square them but today I have a 8.5x11 inch layout using a 4x6 inch portrait photo. I struggled for a while shuffling things around my layout then I decided to use a frame with the ability to embellish it so it became the centre piece of my layout.
These frames are just gorgeous! I chose the portrait one to use on my layout (keeping in mind your photo with the heart on the inside of the frame). I resized to fit my photo using a multi coloured aztec paper from the Good Vibes collection by Simple Stories (all product for this is using this collection).
Firstly I created a border to contrast against the white card stock.
Once I had fixed my photo into place to the inner cut file frame I attached it to the centre of my page. I left the sides of the photo and frame untaped so I could tuck embellishments under.
I add the die cut FAB as my title to the top centre and finished off with a cute kissing emoji.
Under the photo frame at the bottom of my pageI added another row of super cute stickers and die cuts from the collection in keeping with the theme of my photo and layout. I added some messy machine sewing to add texture.
In designing the top and bottom of my layout first it allowed me to visually see my frame and how I would place my embellishments.
I have tucked die cut floral bunches under both sides of the inner cut file frame, I added a word sentiment stickers to both floral bunches finished off with a heart die cut. I played extra hearts over the cut file hearts with foam tape to add height.
I can't wait to use the other shaped infinity hearts frames on my layouts because it certainly added a real factor to my photo and layout!
Thank you for stopping by today and happy creating!
You are my Happy - Rachel Lowe May 16, 2018 07:00
I hope your having a wonderful week so far.
Today I have a fun layout all about my green fingers NOT lol!
I have used two cut files on this layout:
I have used Crate Paper Good Vibes collection.
I firstly cut a cactus with matching pot which I have foam taped and added machine sewing for texture. Once I had glued my cactus I added cactus stickers from the collection but foam taped then in place so it created a 3D effect.
As it was a feature of my layout I then added a chipboard bird, word stickers/chipboard, heart and enamel pendant.
I then re sized my title to fit my layout. I cut two more hearts and attached them over the heart in the title, added a row of machine sewing down the centre to create a 3D heart.
I have used three paper layers to mat my photo (of the only green things I don't kill lol!) and added some messy machine sewing to the outer pieces of paper. I attached my photo with foam tape and tucked in the paper layers a floral die cut and to finish a die cut bow.
I then typed some journalling and finished it off with another enamel pendant.
Of course a had to add a light splatter of black color shine!
Don't be afraid to mix up your layouts with larger features, photos in unusual places on your layouts or adding to your cut file, it all makes for a individual and unique layout.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Until the next time take care.

Hello JustNick friends happy Friday!
Today I have a 8.5x11 inch layout for you using two JustNick cut files.
I firstly resized the Flowers in Bloom background cut file down to fit my intended 8.5x11 inch layout cut in white cardstock. I have used Flourish collection by Crate Paper. I chose a ombré paper so the blooms have varying colours for impact. You could individually back your blooms in different colours/patterns if you do not have such a paper.
I then created a polaroid frame from a paper piece and added black machine sewing around the edge. I then attached my photo.
I used the Blessed cut file from card sentiments 3 to create my title and cut it in black cardstock and attached.
I then added some of the gorgeous embellishments from the collection. I wanted to ensure there was balance between my background and embellishments so was careful to not over dot it and make my layout too busy.
Here are some close up photos of this layout.
Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful creative week!
You Are My Happy - Rachel Lowe: February 22, 2018 07:00
Hello Justnick friends I hope you are enjoying the wonderful month of LOVE layouts!
Today I have a 8.5x11 inch layout using Crate Paper Good Vibes collection and two Justnick cut files.
Firstly I sprayed black colour shine lightly over my white background paper.
It is so easy to re size your cut file to work with your design. I re sized the Heart Strings background fit my 8.5x11 inch layout design which I cut in a solid colour. I then machine sewed over the hearts for texture and around the border strip.
I sized my title You Are my Happy cut file so it would fit with my photo mat (I created a polaroid frame and added machine sewing around it). As my paper had dots on it I added black Nuvo Jewel Drops to add depth.
The rest of my layout was all about birds and floral blooms which I created two features. I used foam tape on the birds so I could tuck the floral blooms under.
I used the Nuvo Jewel Drops in the centres of the flowers, birds eyes and tail.
I adore this photo of my youngest boy and I, don't be afraid to use pink or girly inclined collections, often they can work beautifully!
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful creative week!
Sweet Layout by Rachel Lowe: January 17, 2018 07:00
Hello everyone today I have a sweet layout for you!
I have used two cut files from the JustNick Store which are just a bit gorgeous!!!!
I decided to make a 8.5x11 inch layout and cut the XOXO to fit the dimensions. I love white on white and if your cut file is thicker it will stand out beautifully.
I then cut a Boho Floral (3) and again sized it to fit proportional with my layout. I cut one in white and one in patterned paper, I love to add layers to blooms and this is a great way to do that. I only used several dots of glue between the white and patterned paper cut so I didn't lose the layering effect. I paper backed the larger bloom. To finish off adding centres to the smaller flowers. I attached to my page with foam tape to create a 3D effect.
I added some machine sewing to three edges of my white background paper to add definition.
Lastly I added some very cute embellishments from my chosen collection Main Squeeze by Crate Paper.
Here are some close up photos for you:
Thank you for stopping today and I hope this layout has inspired you to create your own 'sweet' layout using these wonderful cut files.
Thankful for You Layout and card by Rachel Lowe: November 22, 2017 07:00
I love owls and this owl cut file is just so cute! I have used Bella BLVD Mind Your Manners collection to create my layout. I cut my owl with white card stock and then ungrouped the owl and used patterned paper to fill my owl. To finish it off I have machine sewn the wings.
I then chose the Card Sentiments 3 for my title and a card I knew I wanted to also make.
I decided to make a shaker pocket using vellum on the lower half of my layout. They are simple to make, cut your vellum paper the same size as your background paper, sew around the three edges leaving the top open. Add your sequins or similar (I have also add some small cork hearts) and then sew up the top.
I then added a bright coloured patterned paper piece to the top of my layout ensuring it covers the top of the vellum. I added a scallop border also between the pattern paper and vellum. I then attached my owl with foam tape. I then tucked my photo slightly under the owl. I have used the Thankful card sentiment enlarging.
I have added some typed journalling and finished my layout off adding a die cut owl and word sticker bottom right of the layout.
Now its time to shake!!!!!!!
I have used the exact same process to make my card just on a smaller scale. I have used the Grateful card sentiment and added inside my card. I used brighter coloured sequins on my card and added a die cut flower inside. My sequins are from Speigelmom Scraps and they are just gorgeous.
Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful scrappy week!

Hello, Just Nick friends! It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today as we round out the week inspired by everything circles! I dug deep in my stash for a Just Nick background file with circles at the center of the design. I loved the top row of joined circles within the Bubbles Background. and chose to isolate that portion of the file for my page design.
I cut several rows of the joined circle border from a wide striped patterned paper. Grouping like colors of the border design and stacking them vertically on my page background creates a fun effect. I adhered each piece with a bit of temporary adhesive, later securing them more permanently with machine stitching. This also allowed me to fold each border along it's sewn seam to create lots of interest and dimension on my background.
There are a huge variety of circle inspired designs in the Just Nick store. I hope you've been inspired you this week, to use one (or several!) of those designs to create your next page or project!

Most favorite person | Laureen Wagener June 26, 2017 07:00
Hi there cut file friends!
It's Laureen back with you to share a new project I made!
Now, I have lately come around some changes in the way I scrapbook and see things regarding scrapbooking and have found myself absolutely enjoying to scrap in a different format from time to time.
Doesn't matter if it's 6x8 for telling my stories or 8,5x11 or 9x12.
I am just really liking the change - because scrapping in 12x12 became kind of boring and I had a feeling that all my recent layouts looked similar.
Don't get me wrong I still scrap 12x12 but will throw in some other formats for the fun of it from time to time ;)
Now what I love about cut files is the great variety - the ones from Nicole always come with a PNG version, so you can also print them. I love how Nicole Martle always does that and decided to try it out for todays project.
I used the file "My most favorite" and filled it with a pattern in Silhouette and simply send it to my printer :)
I also used the gorgeous florals from "Boho florals" and kept embellishing to a minimum, because I used a gorgoeus specility paper from the Take me Away collection as my main focus.
I hope you have a great day!

Life is Amazing. June 3, 2016 07:00
Isn't life amazing? I saw this cut in the store and knew I had to use it with a specific picture I had of my cute niece feeding a ground squirrel. What this picture doesn't show is just how "popular" she was with her pickle sunflower seeds! This squirrel was the boss! Letting ALL the others know-these were HIS seeds! ;)
I always seem to cut all my cuts in white so that I can add color if I would like. For my background cut I used an altered version of the new Shattered Polygon:
and for my title I used Life is Amazing, there are layers for this wonderful cut, I decided to use one and paint it with my water color:
I just love when you create a layout that makes me happy--don't you?
