Hi there Just Nick fans,
Zsoka back with you today with a new layout.
You probably don't know this about me because I mostly do boy pages, but I've been in love with flowers ever since I was a little girl. They make me happy. I love to touch them, smell them and yes, even talk to them. A while ago I decided I will not deny myself the joy of using floral patterns and flowers on my layouts just because I don't scrap girls. They cheer me up. And Nicole does the prettiest floral cut files, doesn't she?! So today again I chose a floral cut file which is quite new still. I think this is my absolute favourite one right now!
Isn't it just fabulous?!
I decided to blow it up a little and turn it around so it's at the top of my page. I picked the gorgeous Oh My Heart collection from Paige Evans. I love the purples in this collection! I chose a purple paper for my background, then backed the flowers with different patterned papers from this collection. I hand cut some leaf shapes from different purple papers, which I then layered on the cut file for a bit of extra dimension. I glued some foam adhesive under the cut file so I can tuck my picture under it.
At this point I had no idea what photo I want to use. It happens very often that I do the background and then I find a photo. Mostly one that is already printed so I don't feel like I'm wasting anything ha! But then I realized I actually have a color photo in which I'm wearing some purple floral leggings! So I went ahead and printed out that one. I think it fits perfectly.
For my title I picked the cute wood veneer word LOVE which I believe is from Ashley Horton's first collection, Oakley Avenue. I glued this on top of a circle scallop wood veneer from the Paige Evans Take Me Away collection.
Other than this I only added a suede bow, a chipboard, a puffy sticker, a few buttons and some enamel dots. Generally I add more embellishments but I felt like the page was finished at this point. I didn't even add paint splatters which I do on most of my layouts!
I hope I could inspire you in one way or another! Thank you for stopping by today!
All You Need Is a Free Love Cut File! February 18, 2017 08:00
Hey everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm showing you all my layout using the fantastic Free Love cut file that is available for free until February 19th! Just use the code FREELOVE when you're at the checkout! For my take I decided to get in on the bling and I backed my letters with sequins and some large glitter and an iron-on sequin edging. I always love finding ways to incorporate unusual items and textures into my layouts and this method gave me a fantastic focal piece! I didn't really need to do much else since I already had so much going on but I did like putting everything on the diagonal. Just to make it a little more interesting. I added some punched out hearts for dimension and used some chipboard from Crate Paper Heart Day. Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to get this cut file while you still can!

Hi there. I'm rounding off the Love themed week today with a couple of cards using this week's Free Love cut file...
I adored the fringe look of this pattern paper so I decided to layer three strips over each other. It's a bit hard to tell in the photo but it has some fun dimension.
Then, I layered 3 medium sized LOVE cuts over each of the three strips and added embellishments...voila!
Get the Free LOVE cut file before it's gone. You have until February 19th. Just enter the code FREELOVE at checkout.

Hello JustNick Studio friends!
Marcia here today. Have you ever created a layout using a digital cut file and looked at the pieces remaining on your cutting mat and say to yourself, "That is too pretty to throw away!". I did that this past week with the Blocked Hearts Background cut file. I just couldn't throw away the scraps, so I decided to make another layout, very similar to the first.
This cut file is unique in that it has this big X that dissects the cut file. I wanted to play up that X by placing pattern paper behind only a portion of the cut file so that the heart pattern really popped and yet still maintain some white space. The subtle white on white heart pattern is beautiful, but the pink paper behind the heart cut outs takes your breath away. Here is my first layout using the positive pieces of the cut file...
My second layout is very similar, but uses the negative pieces of the same cut file. It's a bit more gluing, but well worth it. Here is a tip; It helps to leave the negative pieces on your cutting mat so you know where each piece goes...
My parents are adorable! 55 years of marriage and still going strong. On both layouts, I used washi tape to emphasize the X in the cut file. It is the perfect width for washi tape!!
I also used the Love Actually digital cut file for the "Love" and "XOXO" text
Here are a few more detailed shots...
These are the cut files I used today ...
So, next time you use a cut file, take another look at the pieces remaining on your cutting mat. Just maybe, they will convince you too that they are worthy of being scrapped and not end up in your waste basket.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you are interested in the YouTube video of the XOXO layout here is a link...

Donna here and I'm gonna be sharing my first layout for the month of February... didn't we just say hello to 2017?? Wow.. time flies surely fast.
For my page, I went to use the remaining set of photos I printed recently for a previous project (as in the last one I posted for Just Nick as well lol!). I didn't want the photos go to waste, so why not make another layout :)
I used the negative of the white cardstock as you can see here. Different patterned paper underneath made the cuts stand out. To make it more visible, I used a black pen to write inside the cut outs.
I cut the edges of the white cardstock approximately half an inch and used another paper as a mat or base to the whole layout.
I used one of the past Clique kits I have and some other Crate paper and Maggie Holmes in my stash
Cut file used: Love Actually
Thanks for dropping by!

I used the cute Pink Paislee 'Pen Pals' collection to create this layout, one of my favourite things to do is to back cut files with all different patterned papers, this range was ideal to do this!
The cut file that I used on this layout is the Cross My Heart Background cut file found in the Just Nick store. I cut it from white cardstock and backed different patterned papers behind it. Once I had all the papers backed, I used some foam/3D tape to adhere the cut file to the background paper. I really like the dimension and shadow effect it gives to my page.
I scrapped a photo from last year of my 2 handsome sons! They are mostly best friends! As an added effect, I used some foam Thickers for my title and to embellish further!
One of the Pen Pals chipboard frames was a perfect addition to frame my photo and draw the eye in! Puffy stickers and chipboard stickers are great embellishments to enhance layouts.
