Summer Circle Background Layout! | Morgan Langley July 18, 2017 07:00
Hello friends! It is Morgan here and I am excited to be sharing my layout I created using the "In the deep end background". This file was so easy and fun to work with!
I cut the file on white card stock first and then taking papers from the 6x6 "Oh My Heart" collection I cut small pieces to fit into the squares around each circle as well as the middle piece. I grouped all the pink patterns together, all the greens together, etc. Then I laid out the file on my page and marked where each colored circle was for my splatter paint. I matched the splatter paint with the color of circle that would be on top.
Next I fussy cut the larger flowers from the 12x12 "Oh my Heart" paper pad and layered them behind the circles still matching the colors. I added smaller flowers with bunched thread and sequins into the center of some of the smaller circles.
I cut three photos into circles to fit inside the cut file and love how they flow into the layout. I used my type writer for my journaling about this summer day at my grandparents house in Ohio.
Thank you for reading about my crafty process! I hope you try and incorporate this file into one of your own beautiful creations!

I am grateful to GOD first and foremost for all his blessings, and to Nicole for inviting me to be part of this amazing group of designers. My love for photography and memory keeping introduce me to scrapbooking, and I have been hooked on this craft for many years. I especially love working with cut files, so getting to work and share my projects with Nicole's designs is just a delight.
For my first project, i chose to work a monochromatic design with lots of texture -aka stitching- and a few of the store cut files.
For this layout, i chose the gorgeous Floral Burst Background to create the background for the layout. So I used the cut file to create the large hand stitched flowers in the page. To add more texture and dimension to the page, some string art was used to fill the inside of each petal on the flowers.
It did take some time to complete the designs, but i find hand stitching relaxing!
To create the title of this page, i chose the Enjoy The Moment cut file, and cut it twice from white cardstock. The two cut-outs were glued together, and then attached to the bottom of the page using some foam dots (i love the little shadow under the title!)
The picture of my daughter holding the littlest one (that is how we call the little cousins around here), was framed with some leaf cut outs created from vellum and white cardstock using the Stem cut file. A few pieces stickers, and ephemera pieces from the Rose Quartz collection -Prima Marketing- and Gather collection -Crate Paper- frame the picture.
What can i say? I love this page! It is full of texture, dimension and cut files, not to mention a black and white picture ;)
Don't forget to check the cut files used in this layout in the JustNick store, there are lots of designs available (all beautiful, of course!). I am a comment away if you have questions on how this layout came together, and/or you can always find me on Instagram - @tachita55 - !!
See you all soon!
Thanks Dad! - Cathy Martin June 20, 2017 05:00
Hey everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm back creating a masculine themed layout! Fathers Day was just a few days ago and I was really happy to get some fantastic photos of daddy with the kiddos! I had been in a scrap slump, but after Sunday I had renewed energy to go and get some of those photos on a layout!
One of my favourite types of cutfile in the JustNick shop are the ones that are lots of shapes attached together. They are perfect for backing with patterned paper! I found one that I thought was fun and whimsical and would work well with my idea. I'm a sucker for circular patterns so this one worked out great! Usually I cut them using white card stock, but unfortunately I am completely out! (I know, how does that even happen right?) So I decided to use a light yellow patterned paper. Needless to say after my Silhouette was done cutting I turned the cut file over, and ended up using the other side instead! You can check out my Youtube video to see what I'm talking about and see how my idea evolved!
Have an awesome scrappy day everyone and don't forget to grab a cut file while you're here!
