Hi Just Nick friends!  It's Jaclyn joining you today to share a pink and girly page featuring the equally feminine Floral Swag 2 digital design.

Oftentimes when I cut a digital file on my silhouette I will default to using white cardstock.  I do this because, white allows for the ability to add color through inks or paints and provides a nice contrast against bold and busy patterns papers. However, when I decided to use the Floral Swag 2 design, I knew that cutting it from plain white just wouldn't do - so I opted for a simple patterned paper instead.  Cutting it from a subtle polka dot pattern with splashes of pink, feels a bit unexpected and kicks up the design a notch, I think!

This pretty cut file nestles nicely in between my rows of photos.  It's placement is strategic, as it draws your eyes to the photos, page title and journaling, seamlessly.

I used a few additional Just Nick designs to embellish my floral swag.  I pulled the brush script 'you' from the Simple Sentiments file to create my page title.  Cutting this pretty word design from black really allows it to pop off the page.

I also cut some additional pink florals from the Stems for Stephanie file to layer atop the swag, creating even more depth and dimension. A sprinkle of ephemera diecuts and three dimensional embellishments really make this piece special.

I loved the challenge of mixing a brand new design with some of Nicole's older and well loved files in my digital cut library.  I hope it's a challenge you will try too!

Hi friends - Laureen back on the blog!

Today I was assigned to create a project inspired by Spring and I immediatly knew which photo to scrap.


It was my birthday on the 16th of April and we went to the zoo where they had beautiful trees in full bloom all over the place and my mom and I took a few pictures standing by one of the trees. So of course it had to be one of those pictures - because trees in bloom are always screaming: IT'S SPRING!


I scrolled through my cut files from Just Nick and found the beautiful Floral Swag cut file and noticed I had never used it before.
I wanted to make this the focal element of my page so I enlarged it as much as possible and cut it out of the beautiful Pink Paislee Oh my Heart paper.



The open space in the cut file was backed with vellum, as I like the softened effect that gives. Now I've been a bad girl and just noticed as I am writing this post, that I used a few additional cut files that aren't for sale yet. You will be able to snag them next month ;)


I adhered a strip of a wooden paper, because the page looked super naked without it. On top I stuck down my cut file element on some foam squares. I really like the effect that gives - as if the picture is peeking out of the florals.



I embellished with a few chipboard flowers and scattered tons of enamel dots around my page. I am really loving that look lately and may be doing that for several new layouts.

I hope you like todays inspiration!

Onto the next time - happy crafting!

xo, Laureen
