Hi there!

Nathalie with you today, bringing you a bit of inspiration using the lovely JustNick Studio cut files.   The weather has finally changed here in Canada, and Spring is in full swing.   This is time for new beginnings, clear starts which inspired me to create this page about my little Goddaughter.

 

 

I had been eyeing the Mandalla background 1 for a while now, and decided to use it to create the background for this page. I chose to only cut a circle shape filled with the cutfile, so that it would pop off the page.

 

 

The negative part of the cut out was backed with the Royal paper from Maggie Holmes Flourish collection, and then followed by a large circumference of hand stitching -this just enhances the circle cut out-.

 

 

The cut out was then propped on the layout using a bit of foam squares.   I placed the picture in the lower corner of the layout, and create a large cluster of flowers (all from the Flourish collection) around its bottom corner.

 

 

 

To create the title of this page, I used the  Free Spirit cut file to cut the sentiment twice from white cardstock.   Then the two cut outs were glued together, and a bit of gold watercolor was added on top of the words.   These were then glued to the top of the circumference of the circle cut out.

 

 

 

Love how fast an easy was to put this page together.  The delicate background brings lots of elegance to a simple every day picture.  Hope this inspire you to check all the JustNick Studio digital cut files.  There are so many new designs being added every week.

 

XOXO

Hello Friends and Fans!

It is Background week here at the Just Nick Studio blog! There are so many beautiful designs to chose from, but i think every layout that i have created lately carry my creative wish for Spring, which means, I used a lot of bright colors to create this page using a kind of "fallish" background from the store.

 

 

 

For this page, I shrunk the 12x12 Leaf background to fit at about 6x12 in.  I simply moved the limits of the lines so that the entire cut file fit the new size, and then cut it out of white cardstock.

 

 

 

While the cut file was being cut, I created the background using some VIcki Boutin acrylic paints and crayons.  But then decided to bring life to the white cardstock, and chose to apply a combination of gold and iridescent paste on top of the leaves.

 

 

 

 

To bring more of Spring to the page, i chose Maggie Holmes Flourish collection, and added a few of the IN BLOOM die cut images to back some of the large floral ephemera pieces.   A bit of vellum was used to back these florals which add to the softness of the page.

 

 

All the florals encase a picture of my sisters with my kids and my niece and nephew.   I just added a few embellishments and a title to this page, and call it done!

 

 

 

Just loved the final look of the page.   The die cuts are nicely accented by the colorful background and ephemera pieces.   Now if only Spring would show up!!

Remember to stop  by the JustNick Studio store to check these and the many new cut files available,

As always let me know if you have questions on how this came together.
