Michelle here with a new layout to share with you. This week some of the design team have all been sharing layouts featuring 'words'. For my layout I decided I wanted to combine several word cut files and create a wall paper effect down the right handside of my page. I did this by setting out the cut files I wanted to use on my Silhouette template as this gave me the perfect spacing for my page.
I really like using lots of words on my layout to convey the theme or feeling I have about my photo. I first used the Marquee Alpha cut file to create the 'HELLO' and then combined it with the Girl Power cut file. I really liked the mix of fonts and flowers on this set so I ungrouped the file and rearranged it on my page. I then cut it out on wood grain patterned paper and added it to my page in the negative spaces I added some embellishments to my page. I then added my photo to the left of the word wallpaper and added some more embellishments as well.

Thanks for visiting the Just Nick blog today! I hope you have enjoyed my layout showcasing some of the word cut files in the shop - we are super lucky to have so many amazing word cut files to choose from here.
Taking Some Notes September 07, 2015 07:00
Well, it's that time of year again! Back to school! I am a teacher and I absolutely love my job. I feel like the new school year comes at the perfect time - no matter how much I loved a prior class. My classroom is all sparkly clean, all the labels look new and everything is fresh and ready. I thought, since this week is all about back to school projects, I would share something for a teacher or a student - an altered composition book. And, I used the perfect cut files!
Fun, right? And it's super easy to create one of these. This is a standard, hard cover composition book. You can find them at just about every retailer that sells school or office supplies. They usually have a marbled design. I use Mod Podge to adhere the paper on the front and pack. Then, I use a strong adhesive (like my ATG or Glossy Accents) to attach everything else.
For this book, I did the usual patterned paper cover and then, I used one of the background cut files and the marquee alpha to complete the design. It can be a little time consuming putting on the paper, trimming it down to size, etc. but, just look at the final product!
These are such perfect gifts and can be personalized so easily.
I love how the alpha pops on top of the burlap!
Now you have the perfect idea to give to your childs teacher this school year OR maybe surprise your little student with something just for them! And use some fabulous cut files while you're at it.

Happy Friday! It's Jaclyn here today, to round out the last of the summer-y themed projects on the blog this week.
Summer for me and my kiddos means countless hours at the local community pool, so it was an obvious choice for me to scrap some of those memories. I've been eyeing the Marquee Alpha for awhile. Once I saw Nicole's page that she shared on the blog on Monday, I knew I'd need to give it a go!
It was just the pop I needed to draw some serious attention to my title, amongst a page with lots of photos and lots of journaling.
Isn't the detail in this font amazing? Even when it's sized down to just an inch and a quarter high, as I've done for my page title, it still makes a strong impact on the page.
To add even more dimension to these fun title letters I cut one set of each letter from my pattern paper and three additional sets of the title letters from kraft cardstock. Adhering each of the three kraft layers on top of one another and finishing off each letter with the patterned paper version creates lots of dimension. In fact, the letters almost feel and look as if they are chipboard, which in this case, coordinated perfectly with the other chipboard elements on the page.
I know you have lots of summer photos and memories to capture! So, what are you waiting for?! Hop on over to the Just Nick store and show us what you make with them!
