JustNick Cut File Store

By the Sea | Niki Rowland July 23, 2018 07:00

Hey there Just Nick fans, Niki back with you today and today I've used the 'By the Sea' cut file from the store to document my daughter's trip to the sea with her school friends. I love this picture of them with their dresses all tucked into their underwear, soooo cute (I wonder what age you need to stop doing that?)
I've used the sun, shells and 'by the sea' words from the By the Sea cut file. I arranged the different elements onto a white background and sent it to cut. Rather than the individual pieces I wanted to use the whole sheet as a background.
Once cut I backfilled the sun with yellow paper, the shells with a few different papers and the 'by the sea' words with blue paper. I trimmed down the background and mounted it onto a paper that reminded me of the sea.
Once backfilled, I then stuck back in place all the little bits from the letters and the sand dollar shell - this is a great little tip to keep the cut files looking how they were intended to look.
I then added my photo on the left side along with loads of embellishments which I love to pile on. I added lots of little details along the bottom too where the words and shells are.
I then added these acrylic words by a UK company called Bramblefox as they were TOTALLY perfect for this layout. I don't have many sea photos so just had to get these used here.
I balanced out the large photo cluster on the left with a smaller embellishment cluster on the right. I've mostly used one of last year's collections for this layout (Carousel by Maggie Holmes) so it feels great to use up some older stash too.
Thank you so much for joining me today with this very summery layout, happy scrapping xx
