Give Thanks - Valeska Guimaraes November 5, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

Valeska here with you!

So happy to be here on the blog again sharing a new layout. 

This time I really wanted to cut my cut file as big as possible, highlighting the words, being the main focal point on my 12x12 page.

I chose the special and beautiful Give Thanks cut file.


I cut it in a white cardstock and used the outside of the cut and discarded the inside. We usually do the opposite.

Then I chose a green paper to backed it from the beautiful collection Peaceful Heart from Jen Hadfield.

I used  3D foam stickers to to add depth to the green paper, making it lower than the white cardstock.

After placing the green paper below the white one, I cut only the inside of the word Thanks in golden paper, to make it even more highlighted.

I splashed in golden watercolor and added butterfly die cuts from the same collection.

To finish, I placed my photo on the top left of my layout and placed flowers and branches from the collection.

I really wanted to enhance my cut file and decided not to add anything else, making the page as simple as possible.

I hope you enjoyed and were inspired to create simple and special projects for you, using cut files that make your projects even more beautiful, like the ones from JustNick.

Thank you for stopping by.

Hello Friends!  So much to be thankful for this past year, and Thanksgiving time is definitely a way to express that with the beautiful Fall cut files JustNick has.  I used the Leaves 6 cut from white cardstock, backed with solid cardstock.  And then used the Give Thanks cut file digitally to create a background that I printed onto my pattern paper.  I use Photoshop Elements to change the color of it, make it smaller, and create the background.

I created a circular cluster of the leaves, then added in my photos printed into circles to fit right in with the design.  I stapled the white cardstock cut leaves to the solid colored cardstock for a unique look and added texture.

Before I adhered anything down, I penciled where my journaling would go, and sent through my typewriter.  Finished with beautiful Fall embellishments.

These leaves are gorgeous!  Use them as I did and maybe give creating a digital background a try if you are able to.  So many ways you can use JustNick files other than cutting them!
