Hey everybody it's Cathy here, back with another layout for JustNick Studio and Scrapbook Circle! The Scrapbook Circle kit for March was loaded with bright colours and funky designs. I really wanted to showcase all of those fun papers and colours so I chose the dreamcatcher background 1. There were lots of awesome spaces to back with papers! I used a small star stamp to create a fun pattern around where my cut file would rest and then popped my file up on some foam for added dimension. Since all the products worked so perfectly together embellishing was a piece of cake! A big thank you to Nicole and Scrapbook Circle for this awesome team up!

Hi friends -
I hope you had a GREAT christmas! Can you believe that the year has almost come to an end?! I for sure can't! Time flies when you're having fun - or are in the hospital for the first half of the year.
I had a great time this year in the amazing Just Nick Team and can't wait to see what next year brings and what great cut files Nicole comes up with - I bet you are as excited as I am!
Today I have a Holiday project for you - I was able to use any design from the store and decided to go festive and scrap a picture of me and my mom at a christmas market.
I just got in the Merry and Bright collection from Fancypants when I started this project and knew I would use it for my layout.
Looking through the cut files I saw the amazing Holiday Tree design. I wasn't quit sure what do with it, but started by cutting it out of regular cardstock.
Then I had the idea to color the design with watercolors and did that - absolutely love the look! I popped everything up on some foam squares and adhered it down to a patterned paper from the collection.
A little embellishing around my picture, some ink splatters and this page was done!
I hope you enjoyed todays post and I will catch up with you in the New Year!

Enjoy the Moment for Fancy Pants Week! May 26, 2016 07:00 1 Comment
What a fun week so far, right? I absolutely love the Attwell collection we received from Fancy Pants for our team up. I thought the colors would work really with a kraft cardstock base and I also decided to use some relatively new cut files, that are in the shop.
Here is the page I created:
I absolutely love any cut file I can use as a background and incorporate lots of different colors and patterns. The radiate file was so fun to use! I chose to cut it with kraft and layer on top of kraft. It creates a really neat dimensional look. To add the pattern papers, I just held the negative of the cut file and cut around it. Super easy and it fits perfectly behind the cut file.
The fun was figuring out how I wanted to spread out the patterns and give some good balance.
How fun are those tags? By layering them under the photo, it helped to create my visual triangle with the color scheme. I'm all about visual triangles. Perhaps a bit obsessed.
Here are a couple more close ups...
I love how most of the pattern papers have a solid color on the other side. One of them worked perfect to create my title as the color went with the design.
I added some faux stitching around the cut file to help ground the overall design.
Thanks for swinging by today! I hope you are enjoying the focus and fun on the blog, this week, as we party with Fancy Pants Designs!

This week we have teamed up with Fancy Pants and are sharing projects that we created using Nicole's amazing cut files with Fancy Pants' bright, colorful Attwell collection.
While there are many more bright, cheery colors in this collection, I stuck with the blues, black and yellow to coordinate with the suits the kids are wearing. I used the yellow for a pop of color to make the picture stand out; there are plenty of elements in the Attwell collection that support that desire!
A couple of weeks ago, the Fancy Filigree background was released. It is such a versatile background! You can use it as a lattice background with the innards removed, as I have done here, or you could fill them with other patterned papers.
Or you could cut a few of the "O" innards from patterned paper and layer them with the "x" remnants of your background cut as I have done here! I love the look that it creates! I scattered a through of them through out the layout.
When it comes to digital cut files are you more of a background cutter or an embellishment cutter? I like both. The collection that I'm using really determines what files work for me more than I have a preference for one or the other.
Thanks for stopping in today! Be sure to come back every day this week as see what the other talented ladies on the team created with Just Nick cut files and Fancy Pants goodies!

Hi everyone! Donna here to share with you my newest page using Just Nick Studio cut files
First thing I did was brush several shades of purple, lavender and blue on the background (gelatos). After the surface has dried, I brushed gel medium all over the background. I placed the Fancy Filigree background cut file to the wet gel medium and brushed some more gel medium on the cut file
For more texture, I used a stencil and whipped spackle after the gel medium dried. Using the shapes from the cut file as template, I traced this over different patterned papers and placed them in random spaces.
Before placing the photo, I gathered lots of light pink thread and adhered it under the photo. Then clustered little bits of ephemera pieces to the right side of the photo
I used different shades of Faber Castell PITT pastel pencils to darken spaces of the cut file background and doodled around the pieces of patterned papers with black pen to make it stand out.
I had a lot of fun making this page. Would you try this kind of background technique on your next layout? Let me know when you do!
I used Clique Kits May kit "Northern Lights" featuring Atwell collection by Fancy Pants Designs

Hello JustNick friends!
Marcia here today. School is winding down here in the states and another of my nephews is graduating! I just received his grad party invite in the mail along with a photo and had to use the new Dreamcatcher_1 digital cut file to scrap it.
I placed my title on the left side of my photo as I did not want to cover up too much of my dreamcatcher. Of course my title had to contain the word dream! To keep the dreamcatcher from being too busy I limited myself to just 3 different pattern papers. I am using the fabulous Fancy Pants Designs Attwell collection. I thought that feather pattern paper in the collection was perfect for the dreamcatcher.
Here is the Dreamcatcher_1 cut file I used...
I wanted to share one more layout with you today using the Bits and Pieces Heart Background digital cut file. The new cut files were so awesome I couldn't wait to scrap with them. I created this one on International Scrapbook Day using my May Clique Kit featuring the Basic Grey Urban Luxe collection and the Fancy Pants Designs Attwell collection.
I pieced the inside of the heart with different pattern papers keeping to a cool color scheme with blues and purples along with some white and black.
Here is the Bits and Pieces Heart Background cut file I used.
Thanks for stopping by.

Wow! What a great weekend that was celebrating iNSD 2106 and Mothers Day! I hope you all had a great weekend and were able to use the 30% off discount to get some great files from Just Nick to celebrate!
I used two Just Nick files to create the above layout along with some great goodies that Fancy Pants sent some of the team!! Be sure to check in later this month for some great inspiration using Nicole's great files and this collection, Attwell, from Fancy Pants!
My background was created using the Bits & Pieces background file. It's tough to tell that the background shape is a "bits and pieces" heart. I tried to get some of the patchwork squares to stand out by outlining them with pen. The idea is there, it's subtle. I might need to go back and stitch around the heart to make the shape pop a tad... I can't decided whether I want it obvious or subtle. I thought I liked it as is until looking at the pictures online... Hmm.... What are your thoughts?
The striped alpha is the other file I used here. I used some of the puffy letter stickers that come with the Fancy Pants collection to begin the title and then the striped alpha to complete it. As the layout is already rather busy with the colors and patterns, I decided not to back the letters as I had originally intended.
Love those puffy stickers, flair and washi from Fancy Pants! The little bits and pieces from Fancy Pants went very well with the bits and pieces that I used to fill in the digital cut file background with. To fill the background, I ungrouped the overall file and then colored the bits to decided which colors I would use where. Once I decided upon a pleasing presentation I then grouped red in one corner, yellow in another and the feathers in the bottom, left corner. I then put 6x6 pieces of paper on my mat and cut the "innard" bits and pieces. It saved a lot of fussy work to back the main file!
Thanks for stopping in to visit today!

Hello JustNick friends!
Marcia here today. It's Spring and I have been out cleaning out my flower beds to prepare them for planting this year and my husband has already put my water fountain out. He gave me this fountain as an anniversary gift over 15 years ago. I could probably count the material gifts he has given me over the years on one hand, but when he does buy me something, he knows my heart. Keeping this fountain running is a labor of love for him, a gift he continues to give me each year.
That background paper is so beautiful, but I did not want my photos to get lost. Framing them with the Spiral Background cut twice from white cardstock really helps keep them from blending into the background. The spirals are so similar to some of my floral die cuts too.
Some black Stems really pop against all that vivid color.
Here are all the cut files I used today.
Thanks for stopping by.

As soon as I saw the awesome Pinwheel background cut file I just knew I wanted to team it with the Fancy Pants Designs 'Be Different' collection! That 'Rawr' flair is the inspiration behind this layout!
My 2 boys are my world, they are the subject of most of my layouts! My eldest received a selfie stick and so this photo is the result of the two of them having some fun using it to take selfies!
The other super cool cut file I used was the All Boy set, I cut the word Cool with some patterned paper and cut the star with black cardstock.
I am loving long titles where I can use many different alphas at the moment...it really makes a great impact on your layout!
