Hi everyone! It's Cathy here and I'm up on the Just Nick blog today with a layout about being grateful for the small joys in life. Sometimes when everything is getting overwhelming it's nice to take a step back and think about all the small simple things that can be enjoyed. Whether it's the crisp smell of the cool air, laying down in a beautiful pile of leaves, or wrapping up in your favorite cozy sweater, these little things that sometimes seem so silly can be a huge help in keeping you grounded.
For my layout I chose the Leaf Circle Background cut file. I loved how it could be interpreted as a leaf, or a petal, or even a feather. I cut it out of teal cardstock just for a bit of a change-up from my usual white cardstock. I backed it with paper starting from the center ring and going outwards. so that it was the same paper on each ring all the way around. I used a mixture of old and new papers to back the cut file and then it was time to decide what to do for a background paper. Originally I wanted to use a patterned paper, but after trying to decide for over an hour I gave up. I ended up finding this dark wood grain and I really liked how it paired well with the dark colors in the photo. To add a little extra detail I painted tiny white dots in acrylic paint around the outer perimeter of the cut file.
For embellishing I primarily used products from the Turn The Page collection. It paired well with the colors I was using and many of the phrases were perfect for the mood I was trying to set. I also used some wood veneers to add an earthiness to the layout and I found some older burlap embellishments from the Craft Market collection from Crate Paper to top it off. I added some Heidi Swapp color shine in two different pinks to break up the large space between clusters.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my project today! I think it's important for us as memory keepers to not only document family and events, but to document our lives and our ups and downs as we go through life!

It Won't Rain All The Time - Cathy Martin July 26, 2017 06:00
Hello hello hello! It's Cathy and I'm back showcasing another layout featuring one of Nicole's amazing cut files! I find that the trend of plus signs seems to come and go, but I for one am a big fan! I really loved all the Positive cut files in the shop, so I chose the Positive One file. I did a little revamping with the file while I was in the Silhouette software. I duplicated the file so that I could shrink it down and have lots of plus signs. I then deleted random signs here and there, just to add a bit of visual interest.
My next step was to back my pluses with lots of different patterned papers from my stash as well as some from 6x6 paper pads. I used a combo of newer papers from the Little by Little collection along with some papers that have been floating around my stash pile. I left some of the pluses blank and then put another piece of white card stock behind the whole thing. I added some details around the white ones with some ticking and then got to embellishing!
I am so flippin' happy with how this layout turned out. The story behind my layout is about my son and his dealings with expressing and recognizing his emotions, and I just love the juxtaposition of the happy plus signs with the overall story of the layout!
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look today!
3 x Christmas Cards | Tarrah McLean November 19, 2016 07:00
Hi Just Nick fans!
I decided to create 3 Christmas cards for this week:
The first card I created, I used the Ho Ho Ho title from the Holiday Sentiments cut file set, cutting it from white cardstock and using foam tape to pop it up a little bit!
This cut file set is so versatile, as you get all of these cute titles for your holiday/Christmas projects in the one set!
The 2nd card I created, I used the 25 frame from Holiday Overlay 1 cut file set! I cut the 25 frame from white cardstock again and backed the frame with some red Christmas themed paper. I then used foam tape to raise the whole thing on top of the green Christmas themed paper.
Frames with images or words are great to use on cards, you can cut them from paper or cardstock for a fun look.
The 3rd card I created, I used the Holiday Tree Background. I cut this tree and the frame that its attached to with the green Christmas paper. I adhered it to a white cardstock background and added some Holiday themed embellishments to finish off my card.
The Holiday Tree background can be used for either a scrapbook layout or for cards too, you just need to resize the image accordingly!
Hope you enjoyed looking at my Christmas cards today! Thanks so much for stopping by the Just Nick blog!
