Hello crafty friends...happy Saturday!  Majken here...thanks for joining me today.  We are so close to spring, and today I've created a layout using the new Floral Umbrella cut file - it's so beautiful, I had to cut it as soon as I got it!  Here is my layout:

I cut out the cut file using white textured American Crafts cardstock and started backing it with patterned papers from the Dear Lizzy She's Magic collection.  I backed the umbrella with the blue paper with the pink pattern, and then I started backing each of the flowers with different colors. 

I tested the backed Floral Umbrella on different papers, including white cardstock, but ultimately I tried a dark blue textured cardstock and the colors just popped!  So I trimmed it down slightly and backed the blue cardstock background with the rainbow stripe paper.

Our sweet kitty Oreo sleeping was the perfect photo to put among the pretty flowers.  After layering some ephemera and stickers around the photo and layout, I used some buttons for flower centers, alpha stickers for the title, and scattered some clear enamel dots around to look like water drops.

Here is the lovely new cut file I used:

Go grab this and many new and pretty cut files in the JustNick shop!

Have a great day.

Majken

Hi JustNick friends! It's Monique here sharing a layout I made with this super cute "Floral Umbrella" cut file. When Echo Park's collection "Alice In Wonderland" was released I was one of the first to buy it. But when it arrived I didn't know what to use it for and it ended it up in my pile of scrapbook papers. This cut file made me think of that collection straight away, so I looked for some fun photos and got started. Here's what I made: 

Isn't this cut file just perfect?!! 

I enlarged the cut file a little and adhered lots of different patterned papers behind it: 

I just love how this looks already! Now the fun part started! Don't get me wrong, I love backing cut files as well, I just love building my page more. I contemplated whether or not I shoud add watercolor paint behind the umbrella, but decided against it and to go with a clean white backgroud with only a couple of paint drops. 

The place of the photo strip was easy, that had to come left of the umbrella shaft with a journaling card on the right. Next I only had to add some die-cuts and stickers. When I was done I decided to add a blue cardstock behind my page to add a bit more color. 

Here are a few close-ups:

Of course I machine stitched around my page, on the cut file and a bit here and there on my layout.  

I really love how this turned out. If you decide to use this cut file as well I would love to see it! Please share it on Instagram using the #justnickstudio hashtag or on our facebook page

Hi everyone, it's Vicki back with you today after a bit of a break due to medical reasons. I am so happy to be back and playing with the gorgeous cut files that I've missed so much. This layout is made using a brand new cut file.

 

 

It's called Floral Umbrella and can be found in store here.

 

 

I started by backing the cutfile with various papers from the Cocoa Vanilla Happiness collection. I didn't do all of the flowers because I wanted some to reveal the mixed media beneath them.

 

 

The used the packaging technique to add some mixed media using some Lindy's Magicals beneath the cut file.

 

 

I added in my photo and some fussy cut butterflies to the layout. Then finished off with some nuvo drops to emulate enamel dots and a puffy sticker title.

 

 

I hope you find some inspiration from my layout. Remember you can find all JustNick files in the store here. Until next time....
