JustNick Cut File Store

Hi Just Nick friends!  It's Jaclyn here to share a new scrapbook page I've made using the In Bloom cut design.

I selected this design in particular, as I knew it would make a fun graphic pop against the painterly lines of my background patterned paper.  With a colorful, and somewhat busy backdrop, I quickly decided that the cut file should be cut from black cardstock.  Doing so, ensures that the designs are not lost amongst the layers and colors of the page, as well as reinforcing the triangular placement of elements.

  

I cut two of the single floral designs, one slightly bigger than the other.  The biggest of the two florals is tucked along the left side of my photo and accented with a chipboard flower underneath.  The open spaces left in the petals and leaves, allow for a peek at the layered elements below.

The smaller of the two single florals is nestled along the right bottom corner of my photo.  It's placement helps accent the page title.

The duo of florals sits along the upper right edge of the page.  Again, it is accented with chipboard flowers, but this time they sit on top of the cut design.  A couple of fussy cut butterflies add even more texture and interest to this section of the page.

Cut file used: 

In Bloom

I hope this layout inspires you to use your Just Nick designs to make a statement on your next scrapbook layout!

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!

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.

See you all soon!
