JustNick Cut File Store

Moments | Sheena Rowlands November 24, 2021 07:00

Hi there x

Sheena here again and I am sharing my latest 12x12 layout featuring a gorgeous Just Nick Studio cut file.

Moments.

 

When I saw this Divided Florals cut file, it immediately reminded me of a wedding bouquet so I printed off a few photos from my Brothers wedding in black and white, to scrap with it.

  

Using white cardstock I cut the file and backed the flowers with plain cardstock only using adhesive in the centres to give a more 3D look.

 

Using mainly Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection I set about adding my 3 small photos between the cut files which I adhered down using foam pads.

 

This Divided Florals cut file is so beautiful the page needed very little embellishment so I added a few layers behind the photos and see vellum leaf sprigs around the edges.

 

I hope you feel inspired to create using some of the fabulous cut files available in the Just Nick Studio store, there is a file for every occasion. Keep on checking back as new cut files are being added all the time.

Till next time x


LOVE YOU by SOPHIE DELORME November 23, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a colorful layout to share !

 

 

I used two cut files from the store: Piece of the Pie and Stems 5.

 

 

 

I cut the Piece of the Pie cut file on white cardstock and filled the inner pieces with two black and white photos and patterned papers from the beautiful Bungalow Lane collection from Paige Evans.

 

I did a chain stitch with different embroidery threads around each pieces, cut the white cardstock to an 11 ½ inches square and backed it with an orange cardstock.

 

 

Then, I created three floral clusters in a tone-on-tone manner on the yellow, orange and blue pieces, and added the beautiful Stems 5 cut files to them. I love that they stand out so well, cut in white, on the colorful clusters !

 

 

I cut my journaling into strips and placed them in the right lower piece of the pie.

 

 

My title comes from a mix of American Crafts and Pinfresh Studio stickers.

 

 

I added numerous Pinkfresh Studio Crystal gems as the finishing touch.

 

 

 

How I love how it turned out !

 

This Piece of the Pie cut file is such a great start on a page ! And the cute stems are the perfect addition to floral and leaves clusters !

 

I hope that you felt inspired by my page today,

 

Have a great crafty day !

 

Sophie xx

Halloween Snapchat | Sheena Rowlands October 27, 2021 07:00

Hello there x

Sheena here again sharing with you my latest 12x12 layout featuring lots of the great Halloween cut files available in the Just Nick Studio store.

Now my children are grown we don't tend to do so much at Halloween but I do love a photo filter & I have plenty of fun photos I can scrap. I had such fun making this scrapbook page & loved mixing up lots of different cut files together.

Halloween Snapchat.

 

After adding paint to my background cardstock I machine stitched some strips cut with the Boho Borders 1 cut file over the top.

The Spiderweb 2 cut file was perfect to create a base for both of my photos.

After using ephemera from Simple Stories Spooky Nights to embellish around my photos I cut ghosts from vellum using the Ghostly cut file and bats from cardstock using the Halloween Icons 3 cut file to add around the layout.

I finished the whole page off with my title in the centre back filling the word Halloween from the Happy Halloween 3 cut file.

I hope you feel inspired to create using some of the fabulous halloween cut files available in the Just Nick Studio store.

Till next time x 

 


Awesome Boy | Sheena Rowlands October 9, 2021 07:00

Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I'm sharing with my latest 12x12 layout featuring a really great cut file from Just Nick studio. When I saw this cut file in the shop I knew exactly the photo I would use with it.

Awesome Boy.

I wanted to use the All Boy cut file to make a statement title to compliment this statement photo of my Grand Pup looking really cool!

I resized the words to fit down the length of the layout and split the word awesome into 2 halves. I cut them and an arrow, all from white cardstock and backed them with Cocoa Vanilla Studio - Legendary collection patterned papers.

After attaching the A4 photo to the background patterned paper, the words were adhered overlapping the photo.

To finish the layout needed very little embellishment so I added a scattering of stars and some word stickers.

I hope you feel inspired to create and check out these cut files and more in the Just Nick Studio shop.

Till next time x


HIKING MEMORIES by SOPHIE DELORME October 8, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with this new layout to share!

 

 

I used the “Delightful Doily” cut file quite new in the JustNick Studio store, the “Happy Words” cut file along with the Pinkfresh Studio collection “A Day of Splendor”.

 

 

 

I cut three Doilies on white cardstock with my cutting machine and backed each of them with different patterned papers. I also created big paper brads with a tool from my stash from Imaginisce and put them in the center of two of the doilies.

 

 

I arranged the cut files in a horizontal row and put my black and white photo, a bit crooked, on the left side of my 12x12 layout, overlapping two of the doilies.

 

I used letter stickers for my title and the word “Memories” from the cut file “Happy Words” which was released a few months ago.

 

 

I did an offset cut and cut in on velum. I mounted the word on adhesive foam before placing it on top of my photo.

 

Then, I decorated along the doilies line and around the photo with different die cuts and frames, all coming from the same Pinkfresh Studio collection.

 

 

Finally, I handwrote my journaling directly on the page and stamped the date.

 

Here are a few more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy with the result! Doilies can be used in so many ways! They can also be used as stencils with modeling paste of ink blending. The possibilities are endless!

 

I hope you liked my page today,

 

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you again soon!

You are my Happy Place by Sophie Delorme September 22, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with this autumnal layout to share!

 

 

I used the beautiful “Fantastic Fall Leaves” cut file for this page, along with the Felicity Jane “Julia” collection.

 

 

I created a mixed media background by applying watercolors in the shades of pink, yellow and green to match the color scheme of the collection.

 

I let it dry completely.

 

In the meantime, I cut many leaves from the cut file on white cardstock. I machine stitched in the center of many leaves with different colors of thread. I bent the edges and arranged them in clusters around my black and white photo.

 

 

I fussy cut a few florals from a patterned paper and placed them amongst the leaves. I made sure to adhere only the center of the leaves and flowers to create a lot of dimension.

 

 

I placed my title on the top left side of the photo. I handwrote my journaling on a pocket card and added a beautiful gingham tag next to it.

 

 

Finally, I added plenty of beautiful green crystal gems from Pinkfresh Studio as the finishing touch!

 

I took a ton of close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy with the result! I used the cut file as if I had numerous die cut embellishments! Simple but adorable!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you today !

 

Thank you for stopping by, I will see you again soon !

Beautiful Friends by Sophie Delorme August 27, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a sweet layout to share !

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Script Alpha” and “Labels 3” that were released a few weeks ago.

 

 

 

I cut the frames in a few different sizes on white cardstock with my cutting machine and carefully stitched on each frame with white thread.

 

I used a collection from Felicity Jane called “Ginny” for this page.

 

I used a soft pink cardstock for my background and added a few splatters of white acrylinc paint on it. I cut the upper and bottom part of the cardstock and placed it on a patterned paper. I made a zigzag stitch on the top junction of the papers.

 

I added different patterned papers in 3 of the frames, my photo in the bigger one, my journaling printed on velum in the lower frame and created a simple shaker with the smaller frame right next to my title. I popped every frame except the velum one with adhesive foam.

 

 

 

For my title, I used the Script Alpha cut file and created the word “friends” and did an offset cut that I cut on velum for a beautiful and soft look. I also added adhesive foam to the word to make it stand out.

 

 

I stamped the world “Beautiful” directly on my background, nested between the letters of “Friends”, with black ink.

 

Finally, I decorated the page with a few embellishments from the sale collection.

 

I LOVE the soft and sweet look of this layout. I hope you do too !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These frames have so many possibilities ! You can use them for your photos but also, like I did here, for your journaling, to include patterned papers or even shaker elements to your design!

 

I hope this was inspiring for you today ! Thank you for stopping by !

Natures Sunshine | Sheena Rowlands August 11, 2021 07:00

Hi there, Sheena here again x

Today I am sharing with you my latest 12 x 12 layout featuring a lovely summery Just Nick Studio cut file.

Natures Sunshine.

When I saw this Sunshine cut file in a recent release I knew I wanted to use it so got creating straight away.

I chose one of the sun shapes and duplicated it, changing the size of a few of them till I had 5 ready to cut. I then cut them from a single sheet of white cardstock.

Whilst the cardstock was still on my cutting mat I painted them. This way I could keep track of all the pieces and also it was easier to have them tacked down even though it does look quite messy!

Once the cardstock was dry I carefully lifted off the pieces I wanted to use and attached them to my background patterned paper using foam pads.

I've used the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sunkissed collection for this layout.

Not wanted to cover too much of the suns, I added my layered photo to the bottom left with a few Sunkissed flowers to embellish it and added a little detail to the top right to balance this.

Using the Sunshine cut file again I cut the word out twice in yellow and white cardstock and also a small offset in a blue cardstock. These were all adhered together before adding to the page.

I hope you feel inspired to create and check out these cut files and more in the Just Nick Studio store.

Till next time x

 

 

 

 


Live in the Moment by Sophie Delorme August 10, 2021 07:00

Hello Just Nick friends!

 

It’s Sophie here today with a new layout to share !

 

 

I used two new cut files from JustNick: “Live in the Moment” and “Summer Icons”.

 

 

 

The collection used to create my page is “Summer Farmhouse” from Simple Stories.

 

I cut the “Live in the Moment” title on white cardstock and then did an offset cut and cut it on patterned paper. I added adhesive foam behind the title for more dimension.

 

 

I used the beautiful flowers, clouds and beach umbrella from the Summer Icons that I backed with patterned papers as well. I arranged them around my black and white photo, adding dimensional foam on the back of a few of them.

 

 

I teared big chunks of patterned papers that I layered on the bottom of the layout to ground everything, and handwrote my journaling with a white gel pen.

 

 

I painted very softly around my photo with watercolors, and added beautiful Pinkfresh Studio crystal gems as the finishing touch.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how the title stands out beautifully on this page !

 

I hope you feel inspired by my creation today, thank you for stopping by !

Summer State of Mind by Sophie Delorme July 6, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today to share a colorful summer layout !

 

 

I used the Wavy Background cut file as a stencil !

 

 

I cut it and put it on a thick white cardstock. I used yellow, red and blue Distress Oxide inks and applied them with my ink blending tool on the cut file.

 

I removed the cut file, and added a little bit of water on the background to water down  the inks and add colorful splatters.

 

 

I used the beautiful Echo Park Paper “A Slice of Summer” collection for this page.

 

I centered two photos of my little Sabrina on my background, adding tissue papers and adhesive foam behind them.

 

I created a floral cluster on the bottom right corner of the photos, and put a chipboard sticker on the top left.

 

 

I used a piece of patterned paper for my title, that I cut and stitched on a piece of velum and centered it above the two photos.

 

 

I hand wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

As the finishing touch, I scattered beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Jewels around the page.

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so happy of how it turned out ! This was seriously easy to create ! Why don’t you try using a cut file as a stencil for your next layout ?

 

Thank you for stopping by,

 

I will see you again soon !

Magic ! | Sophie Delorme June 17, 2021 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today and I am sharing a 8,5” x 11” layout !

 

 

I rarely do this size of page ! I used the beautiful “Floral Burst Background” cut file.

 

 

I backed each petal with patterned papers from an exclusive Hip Kit Club kit from March 2021. I added adhesive foam behind it and placed it on the right side of my page.

 

 

I machine stitched around my white cardstock with yellow thread and backed the whole page with a soft blue patterned paper.

 

I printed my photo in black and white so that both my photo and the beautiful cut file would stand out.

 

I added a floral cluster with die cuts from the same kit on the bottom of the cut file, placed a few phrase stickers on the top left where I stamped the date, and handwrote my journaling.

 

Here are a few close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simple and sweet !

 

I hope you can find some inspiration with this page today !

 

Until next time,

Sweet Bloom | Sophie Delorme May 28, 2021 07:00

Hey JustNick friends!

 

It’s Sophie here with a new layout to share!

 

 

I used the beautiful Butterfly Border cut file for my page.

 

 

I cut it on white textured cardstock with my cutting machine. I separated it in two parts; the top three butterflies are attached together as well as the bottom two.

 

I used a beautiful Mintay Paper collection named “Beauty in Bloom” on this page. I backed each butterfly with papers from this collection.

 

I traced a smaller butterfly by hand on velum, cut it and placed it on each cut file butterfly. It adds dimension in a very soft way. I also hand stitched on the body of each butterfly and created a little embroidery floss bow.

 

 

For my background, I added a few touches of pastel watercolors.

 

I created my title with some Pinkfresh Studio alphabet dies.

 

 

I embellished around my photo with flowers cut out of a few patterned papers and handwrote my journaling on a journaling card.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a soft and delicate page! This cut file is so perfect! It looks like the butterflies are flying away!

 

I hope you felt inspire today! Thank you for stopping by!

Dream Big by Sophie Delorme April 28, 2021 07:00

Hey friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

 

It’s Spring time and it is the theme of my page !

 

I used the new Spring Floral 1 and Spring Floral 2 cut files.

 

 

 

I decided to place them as three flower bouquets hanging down above my photo.

 

I cut them on white cardstock and backed them with the beautiful Echo Park Paper collection named “Salutation no.1”

 

 

I used a thick white cardstock as my base and played with watercolors to create a little green and blue mixed media background beneath were I planned to place my photos. I also added many tiny colored splatters that matched my color scheme.

 

I printed my photos in black and white. They are cute moments between Sabrina and our dog Fiona playing together during the pandemic lockdown. I added adhesive foam behind my photo and a strip of blue patterned paper to ground it.

 

 

I created a little floral cluster on the right lower side of the photos as a recall from the bouquets, and added a journaling card for my handwritten journaling.

 

I decorated the three bouquets with flowers and leaves die cuts from the same Echo Park collection and punched three bows out of patterned paper placed at the base of each bouquet.

 

 

Finally, I scattered many beautiful Pinkfresh Studio Crystal Mix as the final touch.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I looove this Spring feel so much !

 

I hope you felt inspired by this layout and those gorgeous cut files ! Check out the store for many more beautiful cut file ideas and inspiration !

Stay Amazing by Sophie Delorme April 6, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

I used the beautiful “Stay Focused” cut file that I cut on white cardstock with my cutting machine.

 

 

 

I backed this cute camera with aqua cardstock and some patterned papers printed at home from a Felicity Jane digital collection.

 

I made sure to pop some elements of the cut file, like the lens of the camera, with adhesive foam for more dimension.

 

 

Before adhering it to my page, I created a light watercolor background and added a few splatters of watercolor paint in colors that matched my paper collection. My photo was quite neutral so I printed it in color. I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind it and a teared piece of pink polka dot paper that I tucked under the photo, on its right side.

 

I also fussy cut two white frames from the same Felicity Jane collection and placed them on the left side of the photo.

 

My title is a mix of the same “Stay Focused” cut file (for the word “Stay”) and a Simple Stories Cardstock sticker for the word “Amazing”. As you noticed, I did a little bit of doodling with a fine tip black pen on the word stay and on the camera.

 

 

Finally, I simply added a few fussy cut flowers and leaves around the photo and cut file, handwrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I could inspire you today and that you like this page !

Love You | Heart to Heart cut file | Sophie Delorme March 24, 2021 07:00

Hello !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

My assignment this week was to create a more masculine layout.

 

 

I used the “Heart to Heart” background 2 cut file for my design and a sweet photo of my teenager holding our dog.

 

 

I used a thick white cardstock for my background and played with Shimmerz paints and watercolors to add some blue mixed media where I planned to put the cut file.

 

I cut the cut file on white cardstock and backed the hearts with different patterned papers from the Pinkfresh Studio “Be You” collection. I also hand stitched around a few hearts with blue embroidery floss.

 

 

I added adhesive foam to the back of the entire cut file before adhering it to the page. I also added tissue paper, adhesive foam and a chipboard frame to my photo.

 

I teared two strips of patterned paper that I put on the bottom of the page to ground the whole design.

 

I added my title, fussy cut leaves out of patterned paper and a few other embellishments and hand wrote my journaling.

 

 

Here are more close-ups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I could inspire you with this page today. There are so many options of cut files in the Just Nick Studio store and many of them can be used for more masculine pages.

 

Thank you for passing by today and happy creating !

Dream My Little Angel | Sophie Delorme March 12, 2021 07:00

Hello Crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !

 

 

I used the Fall Foliage 2 cut file for this page.

 

 

I started with a thick white cardstock as my base, and applied an Inklingz from Shimmerz Paints using the packaging technique where I planned to put my cut file.

 

I cut the cut file on white cardstock and placed it to create 2/3 of a wreath on the left side of my page.

 

I backed the leaves of the cut file with the beautiful Felicity Jane digital collection named Hanna. I put adhesive foam behind the cut file before adhering it to the page. I love the subtle dimension it creates, and the soft effect of white on white. Perfect for a winter page !

 

 

Then, I backed my photo with tissue paper, patterned paper and adhesive foam, and I fussy cut plenty of floral ephemeras from the same Felicity Jane collection to embellish my page.

 

 

My title is a mix of Thickers and stickers from my stash.

 

I hand wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

 

This layout came together in no time at all ! Using a big cut file really dictates the design of the page and makes it a very easy process !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that I inspired you with this page today,

 

Thank you for passing by !

LOVE YOU / Mandalla Heart / Sophie Delorme February 5, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share.

 

 

I focused on the beautiful Mandalla Heart 3 cut file that will be in the Just Nick Studio store very soon if not yet !

 

 

I cut the heart quite big to be able to fit my photo in.

 

I thought to leave it all white this time, to make it look like a beautiful soft lace that embraces the sweet photo of my daughter and our dog.

 

I used the Pinkfresh Studio “My Favorite Story” collection to create this layout. I used a striped patterned paper for my background that I cut in a 11 inches square, and backed it with a beautiful soft green floral paper. I added a blue patterned paper to the center of the heart to make my photo stand out.

 

 

I hand stitched with blue thread the junction of the blue paper with the cut file, and also hand stitched a few X’s around the edge of the page. I adore that subtle addition it gives to the page !

 

 

I backed my photo with tissue paper and pink patterned paper and embellished around it with a few floral clusters.

 

I wrote down my journaling on a piece of white cardstock on which I added velum paper and a beautiful pink puffy frame.

 

 

Finally, I added a few white Nuvo Drops as the finishing touch !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! Even though the Mandalla Heart Cut file is plain white, I think it is still the focus on my page and I totally adore it !

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page in some way today !

 

Thank you for stopping by !

Enjoy The Moment | Sophie Delorme January 22, 2021 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

 

It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share.

 

 

I used two different cut files for this page. The first one is called “Rustic Winter Frame” and the second one, for my title, is called “Enjoy The Moment”.

 

 

 

I decided to enlarge quite a bit and cut the Rustic Winter Frame on white cardstock. I cut out the inner piece of the frame on watercolor paper, added a little bit of mixed media on my background with watercolors and, once dried, stitched the beautiful frame on the page. As you noticed I also backed the fine line around the frame with blue cardstock that matched my color scheme.

 

 

Then, I added dimensional foam to the back of my whole background before adhering it to a beautiful patterned paper from the Pinkfrech Studio collection named “Oh what Fun !”. I love how it brings depth to the frame and direct the attention to my photo.

 

I created a beautiful floral and leaves cluster on the lower left of the frame, where there already is a bunch of leaves from the cut file. I added ephemeras from the Pinkfresh Studio collection and also punched leaves out of colored cardstock.

 

 

I cut the cut file title on green cardstock and did an offset cut on white cardstock. I adhered the two of them together and added some Glossy Accents (from Ranger) on the green cardstock to make it shine.

 

 

Finally, I added a few Nuvo Drops here and there around the page and hand wrote my journaling.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out !  I hope you do too !

 

Thank you for stopping by today !

 

I will see you very soon !

Picture Perfect by Sophie Delorme November 9, 2020 07:30

Hello everyone !

 

It's Sophie here and I am very happy to share this lovely layout with you today !

 

 

I used the beautiful Botanical Wreath that just arrived to the store in October.

 

 

I cut the wreath on my cutting machine and used only the 2/3 of it.

 

I started my page with a thick white cardstock, on which I added a bit of water-colour paint behind where I planned to put the wreath. I did little splatters of blue water-colour and some gold color shine as well.

 

I backed the delicate wreath with patterned papers from the beautiful Jen Hadfield collection named "The Avenue". I added some fussy cut leaves, flowers and chestnuts from the same collection.

 

 

I added adhesive foam behind the cut file before adhering it to the page. 

 

The photo is from me and my son, documenting how tall he his at 16 years old, and how time flies by.... 

 

My title is from a pocket life card, and I also created a label on which I stamped "Time Flies" with blue ink.

 

 

Finally, I created other leaves with an exclusive stamp set from Scrapbook and Cards Today to add to the floral clusters, and sticked down little golden puffy sticker leaves from Jen Hadfield.

 

 

I hand wrote my journaling and stamped the date.

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love how it turned out !

 

Isn't this cut file just breathtakingly beautiful !??!

 

I hope I inspired you to get crafty today, thank you so much for passing by !

Too Cute To Spook | Sophie Delorme October 26, 2020 07:00

Hello friends !

 

It’s Sophie with you today with this lovely Halloween layout of my little girl enjoying giving treats last year !

 

 

I used two Just Nick cut files for this page: “Pumpkin Patch”

 

 

And “31” for my title.

 

 

I started with a thick white cardstock for my background, where I added a few watercolors behind the title and on the lower part of the layout.

 

 

I decided to use a beautiful collection from Simple Stories named “Happy Haunting” for my page. I teared a big chunk of patterned paper to “ground” the pumpkins and I backed each of them with different patterned papers and black cardstock for the eyes and mouths.

 

 

I added adhesive foam on the back of the cut file before adhering it to the page.

 

I also backed my title with adhesive foam. I love the extra dimension it gives to it.

 

 

I drew a spider web that connects my title to the photo and pumpkins.

 

Finally, I embellished the page with flowers, bats and a pumpkin cardstock sticker.

 

 

 

 

 

I handwrote my journaling and added a few white nuvo drops as the finishing touch.

 

 

I love the end result and the color scheme of my page.

 

I hope you do too !

 

Thanks for passing by today and I wish you a lovely crafty day !

My Little Sweet Heart | Sophie Delorme October 2, 2020 07:00 46 Comments

Hello all !

 

It's Sophie with you today sharing an adorable layout using the beautiful Whimsical Frames cut file.

 

 

Here is the cut file:

 

 

I cut the right upper frame three times with my cutting machine on white cardstock, and backed the centre of the frames with a photo of me and my little girl Sabrina, and some patterned papers from the Felicity Janes digital kit named "Amber".

 

Before adhering the frames to my page, I played with some water-colours to create a soft and subtle mixed media background that matched the color scheme of the collection.

 

 

I added adhesive foam under the frames for more dimension. I chose my title, which is a combination of some American Crafts Thickers and Pinkfresh Studio Mini puffy alpha stickers, and centered it just above my photo.

 

 

I fussy cut embellishments from the Felicity Jane collection like the leaves, the pumpkins and the beautiful hearts, as well as a subtitle. 

 

Finally, I added a paper bow, created with a punch, on top of the first frame, as the finishing touch. 

 

 

I love how it turned out ! These frames are so delicate and plenty of tiny details !

 

Remember, you don't always have to necessarily put a photo in a frame. You can embellish them with patterned papers or die cuts, ephemeras, etc. 

 

Here are more close-ups of the layout:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that you found inspiration in this layout !

 

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great crafty day !

Hello everyone and happy fall !

 

It's Sophie here and I am sharing a beautiful autumnal layout about my little girl and our dog. 

 

 

The assignment today was to create a page using a cut file like a stencil. When I saw the gorgeous Mandalla 3 that just arrived in the store, I NEW I had to use it in some way !!!

 

 

I cut it on white cardstock, put it on water-colour paper and applied white textured paste delicately on it with a palette knife. I removed the cut file and let my background dry completely before adding water-colours that matched my color scheme. I used the beautiful "Forever Fall" collection from Simple Stories.

 

 

I placed my photo on the right lower corner of my layout, to really make the mandala stand out from the page. I layered tissue paper, adhesive foam and a few patterned papers behind it.

 

 

I embellished around my photo with stickers and fussy cut flowers from the same Simple Stories collection. I also teared a strip of patterned paper for the bottom edge of the page.

 

I used a Simple Stories foam sticker for my title, and adhered it so that it starts right in the centre of the beautiful mandala. 

 

 

I handwrote my journaling directly on the background and added plenty of blue, white and pink Nuvo Cristal Drops as the finishing touch.

 

 

Oh how I like the end-result ! This Mandalla cut file is just fabulous !!! Using cut files like a stencil is another beautiful way to get creative and it gives a completely different look to them !

 

Here are more close-ups:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired to use this Mandalla cut file and get your creativity going !

 

Until next time,

 

Sophie xx

 

 

 

 


BEST FURRIENDS LAYOUT | Sophie Delorme June 26, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends !

It's Sophie here today and I am sharing a cute layout highlighting the special bond between my little Sabrina and our dog, and I found the PERFECT JustNick Cut file for that ! 

I used the Cut file named "Paws to my Heart Background" that you can find in the store right here.

I've got so many photos of our dog... that as soon as I saw this in the shop, I new I had to use it !

So I started with a white cardstock background, adding just a few watercolor splatters on it in a rainbow order. I cut the cut file on white cardstock twice, to get a second layer of hearts. I backed the cut file with the beautiful paper no 06 from the Paige Evans Bloom Street collection. Then, I painted my second layer of hearts with watercolor to mimic the rainbow scheme of the patterned paper, and adhered it a little offset from the white hearts underneath. I love the result ! It's like having new embellishments, made out of the cut file..!

 I added adhesive foam behind the cut file and sticked it down to my page.

 I backed my photo with some tissue paper and a pink layer of another Bloom Street patterned paper and arranged it on the upper left side of the layout. 

 I embellished my page with other goodies from that same collection, and used a Flutter Phrase Thicker for my title.

 Isn't this cut file adorable ?? I am very happy with the end result ! I hope you like it too ! Check out the JustNick store to see more amazing cut files. Trust me, you  will get inspired on the spot !

Here are a ton of close-ups. Feel free to comment or ask any questions ! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 I wish you all a great crafty day !

ALL FLOWERS LAYOUT | Sophie Delorme June 10, 2020 07:00

Hello everyone ! My name is Sophie Delorme and I am more than thrilled to share my very first layout for JustNick with you today !

 

 

I created a page featuring my little girl and our dog Fiona enjoying the early days of spring. I used the gorgeous Cut File called "Loopy Circle Background" for my page, that reminded me of little roses.

I started by applying watercolors on thick white cardstock that matched my color scheme as my base for my page.

I backed the cut file with different lovely patterned papers from the Jen Hadfield "Hey, Hello" collection, and used some goodies from that same collection as well as from the Heidi Swapp Storyline Chapters collection. I added adhesive foam in the back of the cut file before adhering it to ma page.

 

I fussy cut plenty of flowers from the Jen Hadfield patterned paper called Yellow Roses to embellish ma page. 

My title comes from the Heidi Swapp Planner Mini Stocker Book. I wrote down my journaling on little stripes of paper and added the date. I applied a few Nuvo Crystal Drops here and there on my page as the finishing touch !
And here it is ! I love the end-result and hope you do too ! That cut file is so beautiful and easy to use !
Here are a few close-ups.

 

 

 

I hope you felt inspired by my page today, thank you so much for stopping by !

Fly | Vicki Parker May 1, 2020 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today with my latest layout which I hope you will find inspiring in some way!

 

I used an older cut file called Up in the Air, which you can find in store here

 

I started by cutting just the top left balloon three times - one big and the other two smaller. I used one of the Paige Evans Bloom Street papers to back all three balloons and then added a little bit of subtle watercolour to each to add a slightly more 'grungy' feel. I also put a very light blue wash over the background cardstock so that it gave the impression of sky.

I also painted the baskets of the balloons in coordinating colours rather than leave them white.

I layered up my photo with some pocket life cards and then used some Bloom Street florals to embellish, together with a PinkFresh layered sticker and some Bramble Fox clouds.

Finally, I added by title using the Vicki Boutin Let's Wander Thickers which I adore and will be sad to run out of! And that's it! I do hope you like it - thank you so much for looking. See you next time!

 


Bloom // Sarah Bargo March 18, 2020 07:00

Hey paper peeps! Happy Wednesday! I don't know about you but I am super excited for springtime to get here! Spring makes me think of flowers and I looove gardening and flowers so much that I started a garden journal!  Come on I'll show you the first spread I have in it :) I used the gorgeous Bloom cut file!

These pages are being put into a vintage garden book, so the pages are about 6x8 inches. I cut the "bloom" word about 7 inches long, then I just put it vertically along the photo. Looks so fancy I love it! 

I cut the word out of pink watercolory print paper! Looks so delicate and pretty like a rose :) I found this photo of these gorgeous roses on Pinterest just to showcase them as my favorite flower! I bet they smell like heavennnn..

Maybe someday I'll have my own beautiful roses! Do you keep a garden journal? I can't wait to fill this up with pages and pages of pretty flowers! 

You can find this gorgeous cut file here! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! 


Mixing Cut Files // Sarah Bargo March 6, 2020 18:23

Hey paper peeps! Sarah here with a fun way to use a variety of cut files all at once! Recently I went to Arizona to see my family, and I wanted to scrap my photos asap so I didn't forget anything.. so I created a mini album! And for the first time ever, I made a 4x4 album and it was SO MUCH FUN!! All of the pages were 4x4 so I cut a bunch of different papers and cut files and just went to town and ended up with all of these cute little pages! Come on I'll show you some!

On this one I actually combined 2 cut files! These are the ones I used:

 

I just cut a folder out of patterned paper and then layered a flower right over the top of it!

I wanted to put the month "February" on a tag as the front cover, so I used the Month Script cut files!

 

And created this cute little cover tag:

Then I used the adorable flamingo in "Take Me to Paradise" to create this!

He's so cute I just love him! 

Then I used these:

 

to create these!

The folders are the perfect size to use as a full 4x4 page, and the "Summer Cards" are the perfect size to trim a little and lay it over top of a 4x4 page! 

 A pretty word looks perfect layered directly on top of a photo! 

I hope I have inspired you to create something fun this weekend :) I can't wait to finish creating my pages, then I can put them all together and have this chunky little stack of memories!  

Thanks so much for stopping by! xoxo


Something to Remember | Vicki Parker December 27, 2019 07:00

Hi everyone, it's Vicki here today sharing my layout using the Fallen Snow cut file available in store here.

 

 

 

I have lots of bauble stickers and acetate pieces from a recent Hip Kit and I wanted to use them up, so I thought this would be the perfect excuse - lots of hanging things! I started by adding some drips of a blue Shimmerz paint down the page and painting the snowflakes lightly in the same colour.

 

 

I stuck the cut file to the top of the page and then using foam, I raised the snowflakes before sticking them to add some dimension.

 

 

I then pulled out the baubles and added them to the top or from the bottom of the paint drips to look like they were hanging from them.

 

 

I also used some acetate snowflakes to add to the theme. My photo was mounted on some blue cardstock and tucked into a snowflake. And that's it, the final layout - I hope it gives you some inspiration for using this cut file on a winter layout. Until next time...

 


Fly High / Leslie Berner August 6, 2018 07:00 1 Comment

Hello!
It's Leslie on the blog today and I hope I find you all well!
 
We have some gorgeous cut files to work with this month and I was immediately drawn to the Butterfly Background 3 design. I love the way the butterflies seem to almost flourish around and off the page. 
I cut two copies of the cut file, I used one for the base of my butterfly cluster whereas I cut out the inside of the wings of the butterflies of the second copy. 
Here you have a closer look at how I did this.
 
I decided that I wanted a lot of layers to make up the butterflies, so I traced around the butterflies and cut out each butterfly from a different patterned paper from the Jen Hadfield, Patio Party collection. This gave the butterflies three layers, however I wanted to tone down the bright colors of the patterned paper butterflies a bit, so I backed the top layer of the butterfly cut file with some tracing paper, and that gave the perfect hazy look I wanted to create. 
Here you can see the all the layers.
The tracing paper tones down all the colors a lot so I had to add some color to the background, and what better way to do this than with some Heidi Swapp Color shine! I used the Hot pink and the Butter, and basically just sprayed it straight onto the background paper, this added just the right amounts f color in the right spots. 
To bring in some more color, I dug through the Patio Party ephemera pack and knew straight away that I wanted to use those beautiful florals. I also did some fussy cutting from one of the patterned papers to add to the floral clusters. 
I first had the idea that I wanted my title to be, 'Fly my pretty!', but then I didn't have enough of those gold thickers, so I changed the title to 'Fly High'.
Oh, and before I forget, I did some hand stitching through the centers of the butterflies, I thought that they needed a spot of pink!
Here is the final layout. 
I hope that you find inspiration and make the cut files work for you, like I did with this beautiful one! By using my craft knife and cutting out the centers of the butterfly wings I made the cut file my own and I loved the effect that the tracing paper gives. 
Here is a link to the Process Video!
Enjoy!
 

 

 

 


Hey girl - Johanna Valayer July 27, 2018 07:00

Hello everybody,
I am back today for a new layout, this time it will be a traveller's notebook layout ! I am totally in love with this format, even more since I have discovered the ring version. To document that yummy waffle plenty of fruits and ice-cream, I have decided to use the "Funky rectangles background" cut file. I love using background cut file because I think that it directly gives something to the layout ! What do you think ? 
 In order to make this layout I first sized the cut file for my TN by cutting 2 columns of rectangles. I Backed it with a colorful paper, I love the result with all the rectangles and this is why I just added 2 die cuts words in the center to not cover it entirely. 
Then, I made 2 clusters of embellishments around my photo. I used die cuts and faux-leathers embellishments to add a bit of texture. I also attached one of the die cut to the photo, I love making that ! Finally I add some glittery pink splatters and a little stamp and that's it ! 
If you want to try this amazing cut file out, you can directly click on it : 

 

I hope that you have enjoyed this layout, and thank you for stopping by xx

 


Adorable Keychains! | Morgan Langley June 26, 2018 07:00

     Hey crafty friends! Today I am using the cut files a little bit different and incorporating these wooden beads I found at the Dollar Store to make these adorable keychains or charms or a mini album or scrapbook! 

     I used the cut files "Spring Doodle Flowers", "Cactus Jack", and some extra hearts from "Hearts 2" that I used in my last mini album project. 

I tied a knot at the end of my embroidery floss, strung my beads, decorated my 1 1/2 end circle with the cut files, paper punched holes in the bottom and top of the circle to string it onto the floss, and then tied on the keychain loop or mini binder ring! 

 


You Wonderful Thing - Cathy Martin June 16, 2018 07:00

Hi everyone!  It's June, can you believe it?  I know some kids are already out of school, but here we still have a little ways to go, but that doesn't mean I can't break out all the fun summer colors for a layout!  For this one I decided to use the Love Background file.  I cut it from a phrase patterned paper and then backed the hearts with various patterns.  I also put some yellow ink on my background to make my cut file pop!  I grabbed a ton of different washi tapes and created a border for my layout that helped ground the layout but also give it a ton of pop and pattern!  There was already so much going on that I didn't have to do much in the way of embellishing.  I love the little metal "love" paper clip tucked into the cut file as well.  Just a little extra something to add a fun element!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have an awesome day!

 

 


Accordion Mini Album! | Morgan Langley June 9, 2018 07:00



Hello Summer | Jen McMurtrey June 5, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

With school letting out this week for my kids, it only seemed appropriate to do a project about summer. For this layout, I chose the Summer cut file and used some of my Crate Paper stash that I have been holding onto for far too long.

To begin, I isolated the "Summer" sentiment and cut it using the same flower patterned paper as the background. I then backed it with the wood grain paper and adhered it to the right side of the layout.

The puffy "hello" and chipboard border were added to complete the title.

I stuck with one photo and embellished using a bow, chipboard, die cuts, and stickers. The date was typed on a tag that I cut down to size.

Last were some paint splatter and puffy star stickers.

Thank you so much for visiting today. This fun file and many others are available in the JustNick Shop. Be sure to visit the blog daily for loads of inspiration from the design team.


Happy Girl - Cathy Martin May 25, 2018 08:13

Hi everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout!  So on my last blog post I used the Funky Floral Background and I cut it out of white card stock and created a stencil with it.  Now since I used white card stock I didn't want to throw away the floral background, so I kept it, and this week I'm using it as my background file for my layout!

Since it was already sprayed in a rainbow of fun shimmery colors I didn't have too much work to do.  I simply popped it up on foam and picked a funky watercolor inspired striped background.  Since my last layout featured my daughter and I, I used a photo of my husband and daughter this time.  I like the juxtaposition of using the same cut file twice to create layouts with different main subjects.   Of course since there were so many bright fun colors being used it was easy to embellish the layout, and I had no issue using whatever icons I wanted!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look, and I hope I've inspired your creativity.  As always, have an awesome day!

 

 


Friendship | Morgan Langley May 22, 2018 07:00

Hey guys! Today I am sharing a layout that is a little different for me! I love watercoloring, but I usually keep it simple with a few splatters here and there. For this one though I cut the different stems from "Stems 2,4, and 5" (three cut files) and water colored away! I did a rainbow of coloring and mixed shades and amounts of water to get the look I wanted. While the paint was still wet I did splatters of darker/lighter colors or just water drips to make the paint spread. I love the way it turned out and it was SO fun and care free! 

I added super minimal embellishments with some corresponding sequins, flowers, little birds, ladybugs, snails, etc. Then I used mixed letter stickers to create my title!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Pick up these unique stem cut files yourself and see what you can create! It's always fun to try something new!

 

 

 


Let's Celebrate Mothers - Cathy Martin May 12, 2018 07:00

While I find it easy to take selfies, I find it can be a bit trickier to get a good picture of me with one of my little rugrats, so when I do get a chance I take what I can get!  As much as I love documenting my children's moments, as well as my own, it always makes me smile when I can scrap a picture with us together.  I want them to remember me, and it's important for us moms to sometimes get out from behind the camera and get in those pictures too!

For my layout I decided to cut out the Funky Floral Background cut file.  I cut it out of white cardstock because I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to do with it, but after it was all cut out I decided to use it as a stencil.  This is another favorite technique and since I cut it with white paper I can still use the cut file on another layout!  I sprayed over it with several different color mists, creating a bit of a rainbow effect.  I'm not much of a rainbow girl, but I was soooooo happy with the end result.  In order to showcase as much of the background as possible I used a large acetate sheet as my title so that you can still see behind it!  For having no ideas when I started I am thrilled with the result! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look-see today!

 

 


2 Girls & 2 Trikes | Cathy Martin April 28, 2018 08:00

Hi everyone!  I'm excited to be back with another layout for JustNick and this layout is very special to me because it's the first one I have done using pictures from my childhood of my sister and I.  The picture isn't very good quality, since it's a scan from an original photo from the 80's.  Now because the picture isn't the best quality, I had to keep it small, so I needed a big, fun, bold background to take up the rest of the space!  I ended up choosing the Sunburst Circle background cut file, because it reminded me of bicycle tires.  Since the picture was so vintage I decided to go full on vintage with my paper choices and embellishments.  I absolutely adore the final layout, and I hope you like it too!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

 

 


Lovely | Jen McMurtrey April 25, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

We are celebrating all things "backgrounds" this week on the blog, which happen to be my favorite cut files to use. One background can have so many variations and be used in countless ways.

For this project, I using the Under the Cherry Tree Background file with the Webster's Pages My Happy Place collection.

 

 

As usual, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with the file but knew I wanted to use it. After I cut it out using white card stock, I decided to remove the frame around the branches so the limbs are more fluid with the paper. Next, I used watercolors to paint the branches to match the colors they were laying on.

I loved the way the paper curled after it was painted, so I only tacked the branches down in a few places with glue.

The photo was printed in black and white and matted on a neutral-toned patterned paper. The pink flowers were fussy cut from another piece of patterned paper.

Last was the Thickers title and hearts to match. I kept the embellishments simple so they did not detract from the painted branches.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I hope you are inspired to create! Please visit the JustNick Store for this and many other fabulous files.


Party Every Day! | Morgan Langley April 7, 2018 07:00

Hey guys! Thank you for stopping by to continue celebrating Just Nick's 3rd birthday! Today I am sharing a layout I created using the "Party Hats" cut file! 
I starting by cutting the striped hat on white card stock and watercoloring the paper! I wanted do a rainbow looks so I started with pink instead of red, and then went to orange, yellow, green, blue and purple adding some dark and light shades of each. Then I stitched with shades of that same color along the stripes and added a coordinating pom pom on top! 
On my white background I used the packaging technique to make a color coordinating base for my party hat! I also added some splatters of watercolor. 
I added my title with kraft colored chip board letters and the celebrate letters from the "Turn the Page" 2x2 album. Next I took my mini heart punch and punched color coordinating hearts for each party hat section. I added some buttons, acrylic pieces, flowers, and puffy stickers and loved how this colorful layout turned out! 
Make sure to head over to the Just Nick shop to get 50% off your order to celebrate its birthday! Follow me on instagram @morewithmorganl !

Happy Birthday | Jen McMurtrey April 5, 2018 07:00

Hello JustNick friends!

It's all about celebrations on the blog this week, so naturally I had to create a birthday-themed layout!

For this project I used the Banner Essentials and Let's Party cut files with the Pink Paislee Confetti Wishes collection.

I began by using the pink patterned paper and splattering gold, black, and white paint on it.

While the paint was drying, I used the Let's Party file to create the clusters of balloons in various sizes. Each of the balloons was backed with patterned paper from Confetti Wishes. Additionally, I used the numbers from Banner Essentials to cut 1-5, which I welded prior to cutting. I enlarged the number three and cut it out using patterned paper to make it more prominent.

Because there are so many patterns and colors on the layout, I stuck with a black and white photo so it wouldn't clash.

I clustered several die cuts and chipboard embellishments around the photo for added color and dimension.

Last was the gold Thickers title with gold circles and hearts throughout the project.

In the bottom-right corner I added Abby's initials and the date followed by a doodled border around the layout.

The finished layout is bright and cheery and captures the fun we had that day.

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you are inspired to create. Be sure to visit the JustNick store for these and many other wonderful designs!!


Hoppy Easter - Cathy Martin March 28, 2018 08:00

Hey everyone!  March is winding down and with Easter only a few days away I thought I would share a hoppy layout with you.  Whenever I make a layout about Easter I always think of fun colours and florals, so I really wanted to incorporate lots of fun patterns in my page.  I used the Half Shell Background 2 and cut it out of white cardstock.  It just screamed EGGS to me!  I'm not even sure if the cut file is supposed to be eggs, but I thought it was a perfect fit, and it had lots of spaces for me to back with lovely papers.  I used a combination of papers and products from Paige Evans Turn the Page as well as lots of stuff from my stash.

 

 


40 | Crop Circle Background | Michelle Whorwood March 22, 2018 07:00

Hi everyone, Michelle Whorwood back here again with a new layout featuring one of the fun background cut files in store, the Crop Circle Background.  It is a super cool circle design that can be used on multiple of scrapbooking themes. 

Here is my layout 

I cut the cut file out on an ombre style patterned paper as it gave the file interest, and colour without being too busy!   I then themed my embellishments. to match in with the colours in the cut file which is another popular technique right now! 

Here are some close ups:

I hope you have enjoyed my layout share today! 

Take care
Michelle


Stitched Clouds | Morgan Langley March 21, 2018 07:00

Hey guys! Today I am sharing a layout I created using the "Cloudy Day" cut file! 

First I cut my file on card stock, adhered it, backed it with pattern paper from Maggie Holmes "Carousel" collection and then stitched around the clouds! Hand stitching is time consuming, but I love the look it creates! 

Then to embellish! I used stickers and pieces from the same collection and added some sequins and buttons. I liked how the kites in this collection coordinating with the airy clouds! 

Thank you for stopping by and check out the store for some new spring cut files for all your scrappy projects! 


Come on Down | Jen McMurtrey March 7, 2018 07:00

My oldest daughter has had some grand adventures at only 22 years old, and I love being able to capture many of those moments for her. Just last week, she and her girlfriends flew to Los Angeles for a few days and were able to sit through a taping of the Price is Right. How awesome is that?!

Naturally, I had to put a page together as soon as she was posting pictures on social media. I used the new Doodle Daisies 2 file from the JustNick shop to create a fun layout.

This year is all about stash busting so I used a Hip Kit from July for this project. To begin, I welded the daisies together and then duplicated the file so it took up most of the 12 x 12 cutting mat. I cut the file on a watercolor patterned paper from the Hip Kit. After it was cut, I adhered it to the pink patterned paper, decided I wanted it smaller, and cut the entire thing down to 8.5 x 11.

Next, I matted the photo on more patterned paper and began embellishing.

The paper ephemera and wood stars and arrows added just the right amount of color.

Next was the title, which consists of puffy letter stickers and a sentiment from the kit, followed by a bit of journaling along the right side of the page.

 

I love how quickly this project came together and the overall fun vibe! Be sure to pick up this month's new files in the shop, as well as visit the blog daily for loads of inspiration from the design team.


Happy Cards! | Morgan Langley March 4, 2018 07:00

Hey crafty friends! Today I am sharing some fun and simple cards I created using the "Love you More" cut file! 

I used the Pink Pasilee "Turn the Page" collection for simple embellishing and they are ready to send a positive note to a friend or loved one! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and make sure to check out this adorable cut file in the Just Nick shop! 

 


You Make My Heart Smile - Cathy Martin February 25, 2018 07:00

Hey all, it's Cathy and I'm back with another layout to share with you!  This time I decided to use a cut file as a mask and use some spray mist to spray over it.  This isn't really a new or different technique, but it's one that I've used several times before and I love the end results.

So for my layout I used the You Make My Heart Smile cut file.  This file actually comes with several different phrases and I cut 3 of them out, though I only used 2 for my page, but I just tucked the other one aside for another time!  I used a spare piece of cardstock that I had laying around, since I wasn't worried about keeping the file after I had sprayed it, though you could cut if from white cardstock and then keep the altered file for another project, kind of a two for one deal!

Since my spray title took up one side of my layout I used a bunch of patterned paper strips to fill the other side.  I dug into my stash and scraps and used up some older papers that I had been wanting to use for a while.  This was a great way to really use up lots of papers that are just laying around. I didn't need much in the way of embellishments since the title and papers were already so bold!

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look, and don't forget to check out the shop for lots of amazing designs!

 

 


Tug At My Heart - Cat Martin February 16, 2018 15:45

It's a week of love here on the JustNick blog, and I'm definitely feeling it!  I really wanted to use some older products along with some new products to finally scrap some photos that I have been setting aside for quite awhile!  I used the very cute Heart Strings background cut file, as it was the perfect one for tucking photos in!

I didn't cut it very large, because I wanted to have some room for embellishments, but since I cut it out of navy blue paper it still stands out, and it matches well with the Main Squeeze collection from Crate Paper!  I love how this layout turned out.  It's a Valentines Day layout that is slightly different than usual layouts! 

Thank you so much for stopping by, and have an awesome day!
