I'm doing another twist on backgrounds.today. I decided to create a page using just the negative cuts from the Doodle Flower Background cut file. Take a look...
To create this page, I enlarged the cut file so that the larger middle circles measured approximately 2". I did that so the flower petals would be large enough for my 2x2 photos and my 1.5x1.5 photo.
I then ungrouped the file and removed elements that I didn't want to cut, only keeping a few of the circles and petals and arranged them so that they were in rows next to each other so that I could cut enough petals.
Once I had them all cut, I arranged them in the same placement as the enlarged cut file, moving them around to ensure all the petals fit. Then I stitched around the base of the petals and inside the middles. And there you have it! A layout created using the negative elements of the cut file.
Mother's Day gift May 02, 2016 07:00
Hello and happy Monday! Jaclyn here to kick off a week of projects inspired by some of the most amazing women in our lives...MOMS!
I'm always looking for a unique and special gift each Mother's Day to convey to my own Mom just how much she is loved and appreciated. While just the right store bought gift could certainly do the trick, I knew something handmade would be most cherished and appreciated. I reached for my crafting supplies and Just Nick cut files to create a pretty and meaningful shadowbox that my Mom can display in her home.
The Doodle Flowers cut file is quite fun and whimsical. However, when it is cut from white cardstock and layered atop a coordinating background, it takes on a much more elegant and sophisticated vibe.
Accenting some of the flowers with buttons creates lots of pretty texture and added dimension, while still keeping the focus on the intricate cut designs.
I printed my quote on the background cardstock, but wanted to place emphasis on the word 'Mother'. I used the Outline Alpha to cut out the letters I needed, once in white and another time from a soft metallic lavender cardstock. The lavender letters are adhered below the white, slightly offset, to create a shadowed effect. I used my favorite floral from the Doodle Flowers to represent my 'O' in the word mother. Backing this design with color and pattern allows it and the remainder of the title piece to pop - ultimately becoming the focus of the entire design.
With limited supplies and pretty cut files, a special Mother's Day gift comes together quite quickly and beautifully!
Don't forget to come back by all week long for more inspiring posts and projects celebrating Moms!

Hello everyone! Donna here to share with you my take on the Pinkfresh-Just Nick team up!
I used the LIFE NOTED collection from Pink Fresh Studio
I used watercolors, gelatos, Tombow markers and Promarkers to color the cut flowers. I also doodled some dots and little hearts using a black pen to make the flowers stand out over the light background
I used one of the papers in the collection where it has the word LIFE and placed that to the right side of the page. I wrote my journaling in between the letters and used the yellow alphas as subtitle.
All week long we will be hopping with the team from Pinkfresh Studios! Leave a comment HERE and you could win a goodie bag from Pinkfresh Studios - head over to the Pinkfresh Studio blog and leave a comment for a chance to win $25 gift certificate to the JustNick Store!

A Day at The Public Market March 25, 2016 07:00
Melissa here with you today and I'm sharing a layout that I've grown quite fond with. I just love Nicole's cut files push me creatively. I'm finding I try new techniques and different ways to layer and it's just so much fun. For this page, I cut out a bunch of the Doodle Flowers and layered and layered and layered and layered.
I used papers from the Finders Keepers collection by Amy Tangerine and I think the colors worked so well with, not only the photo but, also the layering I wanted to do with the flowers.
Have you ever been to the public market in Seattle? It is quite possibly one of my favorite places. I love the vibe! The smells and colors are a photographers dream. I'm not a photographer but it seems easy to get a really cool photo. Check out all those yummy veggies??? I love living relatively close to a place like this!
But, let's get to the cut files I used. These flowers are absolutely fantastic and are so perfect for layering! Here are a few close ups. You may also notice I snuck in a piece of another background cut file. I saved it from another project and I'm glad I did. After spraying it with some orange mist, it added the perfect touch to ground the overall design.
You might wonder how in the world to adhere down some of those narrow parts. Well, I didn't. I just focused on getting the larger parts down and then by tucking them under the photo, I know they are going to stay down. Personally, I love that some of the ends stick up. So much fun dimension!
Now, go grab your cut files and have fun creating!
