And this is the cut file I used:
Don't you agree it's awesome?! I adore it! I decided to cut this cut file from a sheet of white cardstock and leave it as it is. For the background of I used a sheet of "mustard" colored paper with white horizontal stripes and I think the stem with the flowers look great on top of this.
This time I chose to use two small (Polaroid) photos, sized 6 cm x 9 cm and placed these on the right side of the stem of the flower.
On the left side of the stem I added a few die-cuts, like the girl die-cut, because she looks a bit like my daughter. At the bottom of the stem I adhered a pretty striped bow.
Below the photos I wrote a few lines of journaling and above the photos I added the title, a few extra embellishments and three fabric flags at the top of the page.
Of course I added a bit of machine stitching and a few drops of white paint. I love how this turned out.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you and yours are all well & safe and that maybe you'll have some time to yourself to scrap! For now I wish you a very happy Easter!

Hey paper peeps TGIF woohoo! Today I want to share with you a fun and simple layout I did using the Doodle Flower Cluster cut file!
One of my favorite parts of spring are the beautiful flowers everywhere, and this cut file reminded me of that! :)
Plus the curly Q's remind me of my niece's adorable pony tail! So cute!
One thing I love about using cut files is how versatile they are! You don't have to be a mixed media artist to use them, just simply lay one on top of some patterned paper and badda bing you have an adorable layout!
I ran a strip of mint green ledger paper through my typewriter first because I love the way typed words look! Then I just laid the cut file over top, super easy peasy!
If you've been feeling a little down lately with all of the weirdness going on or whatever storms you may be going through, just remember, April Showers bring May flowers! xoxo
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello friends! It's Kelly, and today I have a new layout to share using three different cut files from the store.
To begin the layout, I cut out the Floral Cluster 2 cut file and then backed the large flower in a paper that coordinated with the paper layers behind my photo. I lightly outlined around the circle in pencil, and then chose an acrylic paint in a pale green and painted around the cut file.
Then I chose a few papers that coordinated to cut out additional flowers using the Build a Flower 1 cut file, layered them, and used an enamel dot for the center.
After I layered the flowers, I cut out leaves using the Bloom cut file and placed them around the flowers. I did lift the edges of the leaves with foam dots to create a bit of visual interest.
To finish the layout, I scattered gold and black star sequins around the cut files. I love the way that this layout came together using these cut files. Make sure you stop by the Just Nick store and check out the latest cut files.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day!

Hey friends! It's Kelly and today I have a layout to share using two cut files from the store. This week we are continuing to focus on using words on our projects. There are some great files to choose from in the store and I am sure that you will be able to find something that you like for your project.
I used Felicity Jane papers and embellishments to create this layout. I did add some foam underneath the title to give it a bit of dimension.
Since my title contained several different patterns, I backed the florals with vellum.
The leaves of the cut file are dainty so I added just a tiny bit of wet adhesive to glue them down. I don't mind that they are not 100% stuck to the page because it adds a bit of dimension to the page. The layout will be protected in a page protector so I don't worry about them getting messed up.
I love how this layout came together. Using a word file not only helped me create a beautiful layout, but it was a great starting point for my journaling. Be sure and check out the Just Nick store for more great words to use on your projects.

Hello friends! Today I have a layout to share with you using this gorgeous new Floral Cluster cut file.
I thought that this sweet photo of my daughter and one of her friends would be perfect to use with this cut file.
I chose to back the flowers with solid papers and a subtle print for the leaves.
To add dimension to the cut file, I backed it with craft foam. I love the subtle shadows that it creates on the page.
One of my tricks when working with cut files is to tuck the photo under part of the cut file. To me it helps to bring the page together and makes it more cohesive. I kept the embellishments to a minimum because I thought that my cut file did all of the work for me on this layout. I did however add some machine stitching to the sides of the layout, and added a few iridescent sequins around the page.
Be sure and check out the JustNick shop for this gorgeous cut file and many more that were just added to the shop. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day!
First Day of Summer | Monique Liedtke August 5, 2019 07:00
Hello JustNick friends! This week the team is sharing summer layouts and here's the one I created. I used the brand new "Flower Bud Background" cut file and the "Henley" collection from Felicity Jane.
The photo was taken on the very first day of summer. It was a beautiful day here in the Netherlands and my daughter and I decided not to waste this opportunity to grab an Frappucino and sit on a sunny terrace in the market square while enjoying the sunshine and do some "people watching".
This is the cut file I used: "Flower Bud Background". I sized it to 8" x 8", flipped it horizontally so the most buds are on the right side and placed it on my background at a bit of an angle:
I cut off the stems with buds that were behind my photo and adhered these at other places on my page. I also turned them around so I ended up with two different colors:
Behind the cut file I adhered a piece of 8" x 8" white cardstock, also at a little angle, which is obvious in this photo:
After adhering the photo, die-cuts and whashi elements I added a little machine stitching, hand journaling and a few drops of silver colored Mr. Huey's spray ink.
Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my layout. Don't forget to visit the JustNick store. There are so many awesome cut files for your summer layouts to choose from! Don't forget to share yous projects with us on our facebook page or on Instagram using the hashtag #justnickstudio.
I like fall most of all | Laureen Wagener October 13, 2017 07:00
it's Laureen here!
Have you enjoyed fall themed week so far? I have had a blast looking at all the gorgoeus projects!
Today it is my turn and I used the "I like fall" cut file - because it is just the most gorgeous ever!
I decided to finally stitch again - and so I did cut the words out of patterned paper, adhered them down and then stitched around them!
I really kept this page super simple except for the stitching, because it was just already such a big statement that I couldn't overpower that with more embellishments.
Instead I just used a couple of small pictures of pumpkins and created a banner on the top and then just used a few embellishments
like a flair and acetate pieces!
I hope you enjoyed todays layout!
Happy crafting -

You Are Pretty Much My Most Favorite | Jennifer McMurtrey September 14, 2017 07:00
It's words and sentiments week on the JustNick blog and the design team has created some beautiful projects.
Today I'm sharing a layout that uses the My Most Favorite and Lattice Flower Background files with a photo I pulled from my oldest daughter's Instagram account (that's where I get some of my best material).
This project began with the wood grain background paper and yellow paper from Felicity Jane. I cut the large Lattice Flower Background and adhered it to the background paper using Tombow Mono glue. Next, I pierced the paper within the negative spaces of the flower and then hand stitched with white, pink, and turquoise embroidery floss. With the large yellow flower and stitching complete, I added the smaller pink and blue flowers to the center. These were cut using WRMK patterned papers.
Once the stitching was complete, I printed my photo and backed it with more patterned paper from Felicity Jane. Prior to adhering the photo to the page, I created a banner with white string, tags, and tassel a embellishment (all from Felicity Jane) and stapled it all in place with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.
I cut the sentiment next and have to admit that I did so three different times before I finally settled on the black card stock. For some reason, I just couldn't get the look I wanted and stuck with black to tie in with the black and white photo.
I followed the banner with several stickers and die cuts from Maggie Holmes that I clustered on the top and bottom right corners of the photo.
Last, I created a visual triangle with the gold stars to complete the project.
While my scrappy mojo has escaped me as of late, I am pleased with how this turned out and hope to keep the creativity flowing.
Please be sure to visit the JustNick shop for these and many other awesome cut files.
Autumn leaves and pumpkins please | Laureen Wagener September 13, 2017 07:00
Hi friends -
is it too early to scrap fall yet? I don't think so! It is never to early to bring on my favorite half of the year!
This week we are focusing on words/ sentiments over on the blog!
I didn't want to simply use a premade sentiment from Nicole, so I decided to create my own two words to use as die- cuts on my page!
That way you can easily transform your own ideas into a cool design element for your next layout.
I used the Script font cut file to create the words "autumn" and "pumpkins" to later create a title for my page. I welded the letters together and then changed the color of the outline to an orange, because orange = fall ;)
Luckily you can send designs from your Silhouette to your printer, so I printed those two words onto some smooth white cardstock and placed that cardstock piece onto my pix scan mat. I took a photo of it, loaded it into the sofware and created a larger outline for my words, and then simply cut them - and that way you can easily create your own die- cut words for your next project.
For the rest of my page I combined a bunch of fall- ish cut files and used tons of leaves and stems and a pumpkin and cut that out of patterned paper to create my cluster/ overwhelming design going on at the bottom ;)
I hope you enjoyed todays inspiration ;)
Some people | Laureen Wagener January 26, 2017 07:00
Hi friends -
it's Laureen back with you and I am excited to share my layout for today.
For my layout I used the "Some people" cut file which I had in my library for ages but never got around to use it - until now.
I used my Silhouette to draw it out for me shifted to the left edge and then began piercing holes - a whole lot of tiny holes. After that I used my watercolor pencils in orange, yellow and a nude to fill in the cut file.
Then I searched for thread in matching colors to go along with the colors.
I wanted to trash this a MILLION times during stitching - all those itty bitty spots and it didn't look like anything I had imagined.
After I finished all the stitching I acutally began liking it - this layout really grew on me. Before I started I already knew I would use a big picture on the right and create some sort of border in the middle to cover up the edge of the picture.
I fuzzy cut a lot of florals from the Felicity Jane Maggie kit and layered them in the middle of my page.
At first I thought I would use other embellishments from the kit as well but nothing really felt right so I didn't use any extra embellishments - but I think because of the large amount of stitching and the big picture no embellishments were needed.
I truly hope you enjoyed todays inspiration and bring out your needle -
have a great day!

Choose Happy | Laureen Wagener November 10, 2016 07:00
Hi cut file fans -
I hope you had a great week so far and are looking forward to the weekend and some crafty time - hopefully!
Today my task was to use any design from the store - not that hard right?! You think!
When you have access to all these amazingly beautiful files you have a hard time choosing, believe me. Then, once I found the design I wanted to use, the next question was to just cut it and back it or stitch it.
In the end I defintely wanted to use my Felicity Jane Emeline kit to go along with my picture and knew I would just back my cut file with all the different papers from the kit.
I just love the look of Quilts on layouts and why not use a cut file to achieve that look whitout all the cutting of fiedly tiedly small itty bitty pieces and then all the sewing.
The Quilted Circle Background was just perfect and easy - I modified it in the way, that it didn't cut my entire background, because if you know my crafting you may also be aware that I like my white space ;) Therefore I only let two rows of the Quilt and backed those with all the papers :)
First I started with the inner pieces of the circle and worked my way out. All there was left to do was to embellish around my picture and this layout was done!
Easy peasy - so go ahead and try to achieve a Quilt look for your next layout using a cut file ;)
Have a great day and onto the next time -
