Hello Just Nick friends, it's Jaclyn here today. This week the Design Team is zeroing in on the many words and sentiment designs available in the Just Nick store.  This was a fun challenge for me, as I love typography and making my titles stand out on a page.

Spring is in full bloom here in Ohio and even though my allergies might not agree, I am enjoying the pretty blossoms that are popping up all over my yard.  Since many of these flowers only last a short season, I can't resist capturing them on film.  These pretty pictures were inspiring me, so I went to my Just Nick library to pair with them, the perfect title.

The brushstroke style of letters featured in the Good Vibes file immediately caught my eye.  There are four different sentiments included in this cut design. I chose the word 'Bloom', as it was a perfect match to the story I wanted to tell.

As you'll note, the sentiments in this file are encompassed within a circle.  I chose to eliminate the circle portion of the design, as did so simply by 'releasing the compound path' on that portion of the file and sizing the remaining text accordingly.

I couldn't make a flowery, spring-like page without including some of my favorite Just Nick floral designs.  I cut a few different shapes and sizes of the Doodle Flowers out of neutral patterns and sprinkled them throughout my design.  Layering and embellishing each flower gives them presence but still allows the pictures and title to take center stage.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!

Hello! It's Lee-Anne here and since it's officially Spring in my area, I wanted to share a layout of my favorite season.  

For my layout, I began with a 12X 12 piece of white cardstock that I added stripes of distress ink and then I cut the Woven Background on another piece of white cardstock and added it on top of the striped cardstock.  I really thought it looked like a garden trellis and would look good with my flower theme.  

Next, I cut the Fancy Floral, Good Vibes and Round And Round cut files on some patterned paper, added some foam squares to give more dimension and placed them on top of the Woven Background. Finally I added my photo, my title in mini stickers and some enamel dots.

Here are the cut files:

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out these and many more designs in the Just Nick Digital Cut Files shop.  Happy creating!

Hello everyone,

Melissa here with you today and I'm sharing my page created as part of the team up with Page Maps. I was sent a sketch that had me using three photos. Two were stacked on the left and one was to the right. I chose to use two photos and title card for the other photo spot. 

I love using sketches as road maps, especially Page Maps! I've always loved how my projects turn out with Becky's sketches.

Anyway, here is the page I created:

 

I used two cut files for this page. The first one is a background circle file. I cropped it to make it more narrow. I like the look of the half circles around the edge. I also used the circle with the words 'Just Shine'. I love that sentiment with this page. (Links for cut files are found at bottom of post.)

Here are a few close ups to give more detail of what I did with this clean and simple page...

I hope you have had a chance to see what the team did with the sketches. If not, head over now and view them on the March Page Maps page.

Thanks for swinging by!
