Hello JustNick friends!
Marcia back today with some St Patrick's Day inspiration. My daughter and a friend were lucky enough to spend a few weeks traveling across Europe a few years ago. Ireland was one of her favorite places. She said the people there were so friendly. I thought it would be fun to scrap the selfie she sent me from an Irish pub on her first night there.
Have you seen the new Crop Circle Background? It has a Celtic vibe to it, so I wanted to use it for my background. I cut it out of a gold metallic cardstock ... because Leprechauns like gold, right? I love how intricate this is.
I decided to mix some fonts to create my fun title. The Outline Alphas look amazing when backed with a variety of green pattern papers and I combined it with the Type It Font cut out in a black cardstock for contrast.
Big titles are awesome when you don't have a lot of photos and your camera phone photos aren't as high a quality. Here is more of the Type It Font for 'warning'
Here are the cut files I used today
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have an awesome St Patrick's Day!
Autumn leaves and pumpkins please | Laureen Wagener September 13, 2017 07:00
Hi friends -
is it too early to scrap fall yet? I don't think so! It is never to early to bring on my favorite half of the year!
This week we are focusing on words/ sentiments over on the blog!
I didn't want to simply use a premade sentiment from Nicole, so I decided to create my own two words to use as die- cuts on my page!
That way you can easily transform your own ideas into a cool design element for your next layout.
I used the Script font cut file to create the words "autumn" and "pumpkins" to later create a title for my page. I welded the letters together and then changed the color of the outline to an orange, because orange = fall ;)
Luckily you can send designs from your Silhouette to your printer, so I printed those two words onto some smooth white cardstock and placed that cardstock piece onto my pix scan mat. I took a photo of it, loaded it into the sofware and created a larger outline for my words, and then simply cut them - and that way you can easily create your own die- cut words for your next project.
For the rest of my page I combined a bunch of fall- ish cut files and used tons of leaves and stems and a pumpkin and cut that out of patterned paper to create my cluster/ overwhelming design going on at the bottom ;)
I hope you enjoyed todays inspiration ;)
Making memories with you | Laureen Wagener May 04, 2017 07:00
Hi friends -
today I have a fun layout to share using one of my favorite scrapbook collections and a super fun cut file!
One of my favorite collections still is the Fancy Free collection from Paige Evans and Pink Paislee that came out last year!
Now ever since then Paige's collections include at least one paper that consists of a bunch of squares and different patterns.
For my layout today I decided to use that paper and create a huge title with it!
Paige always creates super cute layouts using one of the papers and forming a title - by cutting a letter out of each square. Missy Whidden also shared a lovely page recently, so I had to create a layout like that.
I wanted to use a cut file I have never used from Just Nick, so I cut my title using the Handcut letters 2 cut file. Such a fun and beautiful font!
Searching pinterest for quotes is always a great idea - that's how I found my title quote
Making memories with you is my favorite thing to do
Now, not all the words would fit onto my page, so I used some white foam letter thickers for a few words.
Because the page was filled with my title I only used a few wood veneers and layered one behind each of my three photos.
Now go and grab your favorite Alphabet cut file from Just Nick and create a bold, vibrant title!

Hi cut file fans - Laureen here with you today to share a new page with you!
I was assigned to use any background from the store and so I made a page using the Star Background 2.
Okay - this page was a pain to create! It took ages, I originally used a modified version of the Quilted Background and already backed that with Crate Paper Poolside and then I was stuck. I didn't like the embellishments to use alongside the paper and then wanted to use some of the Shimelle Starshine collection - didn't match at all but for whatever reason I adhered everything down. I was telling myself - and Elsie also did - that I might like it the day after - not the case! So I tried to take it all off, didn't work, because I had to use the strongest glue I had - duuh! I cut the entire middle cluster out and just decided to leave it and go back to it a different time.
Said done, probably two weeks later I desperatly wanted to finish the page and found the blue star constellation by Dear Lizzy in my stash and knew it was perfect for my Starshine cluster. I then cut the Star Background 2 out of plain white cardstock and originally wanted to back it with the paper which - again - I didn't like.
I then used it as a stencil with embossing paste and really like the texture it gives!
For my title I wanted to use the quote or song or whatever it is saying: I thank my lucky stars for you but didn't find anything like that in the store. I then grabbed the Simple Set Alphabet and Script Alpha 2 and made my own sentiment using a combination of the letters and a few accent stars.
Here are a few detail shots for you:
