Summer Circle Background Layout! | Morgan Langley July 18, 2017 07:00

     Hello friends! It is Morgan here and I am excited to be sharing my layout I created using the "In the deep end background". This file was so easy and fun to work with!  

     I cut the file on white card stock first and then taking papers from the 6x6 "Oh My Heart" collection I cut small pieces to fit into the squares around each circle as well as the middle piece. I grouped all the pink patterns together, all the greens together, etc. Then I laid out the file on my page and marked where each colored circle was for my splatter paint. I matched the splatter paint with the color of circle that would be on top.

 

     Next I fussy cut the larger flowers from the 12x12 "Oh my Heart" paper pad and layered them behind the circles still matching the colors. I added smaller flowers with bunched thread and sequins into the center of some of the smaller circles. 

     I cut three photos into circles to fit inside the cut file and love how they flow into the layout. I used my type writer for my journaling about this summer day at my grandparents house in Ohio. 

     Thank you for reading about my crafty process! I hope you try and incorporate this file into one of your own beautiful creations! 


Matariki |In the Deep End Background | Michelle Whorwood July 11, 2017 07:00 1 Comment

Hi, Michelle Whorwood here!  I am super excited to be back on board with the Just Nick Design Team for a second term.  The Just Nick cut files are just my favourite cut files to work with and today I have another layout featuring two more cut files from store.  

I really enjoy creating layouts with circle cut files as they are super fun to create and I enjoy embellishing in and around the circle designs.  Using a cut file such as the new cut file in store in the In The Deep End Background makes creating easy as you have a design to work with already. When I saw this in store I couldn't want to use it!  I decided to cut it out on some yellow cardstock for a change from white and then I backed several of the circles with patterned papers.  I then added my photos of my youngest daughter on a recent school trip to celebrate Matariki here in New Zealand. 

I kept round elements by adding in some more circle embellishments within the circles of the cut file themselves and then also added some embellishments on and around my title and photos.

I cut my title out of patterned paper using the Handcut Letters cut file which is a fun alpha set which I have outlined in black pen on my layout to highlight it more on my busy page. I then added a couple of hearts with foam dots for more fun and interest.

I finished off my layout with some hand cut scalloped borders to frame the top and bottom of my page and some splatters of paint and mist.  I hope you have enjoyed my fun circle style layout.  Do you enjoy creating with circles as much as I do?
