Michelle here with a new layout featuring the Butterfly Background 2 cut file. As soon as I saw this file I wanted to use on it a layout as it is so pretty and whimsical. We recently had this family photo taken at my youngest daughters' 5th birthday party and I wanted a cut file that would frame my photo and add some background detail which the butterflies do perfectly. Here is my layout:
I wanted to make my layout as pretty and whimsical as possible so I added a bit of mixed media to my background patterned paper by using a Shimmers Raspberry Sherbert Paste-eez texture paste applied with a credit card as well as adding some mint and gold mist. I then added the Butterfly cut file cut out on white cardstock and then added some navy patterned paper to the larger butterflies. I love the way the butterflies look on the textured background and how the white pops on it as well. I then added some layers of pink, mint and yellow patterned papers and ephemera from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection and then matted the patterned paper background back onto some white cardstock and added some machine stitching to create more texture to my page.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope you have enjoyed my layout using this gorgeous butterflies background.

Hi cut file fans - Laureen here with you today to share a new page with you!
I was assigned to use any background from the store and so I made a page using the Star Background 2.
Okay - this page was a pain to create! It took ages, I originally used a modified version of the Quilted Background and already backed that with Crate Paper Poolside and then I was stuck. I didn't like the embellishments to use alongside the paper and then wanted to use some of the Shimelle Starshine collection - didn't match at all but for whatever reason I adhered everything down. I was telling myself - and Elsie also did - that I might like it the day after - not the case! So I tried to take it all off, didn't work, because I had to use the strongest glue I had - duuh! I cut the entire middle cluster out and just decided to leave it and go back to it a different time.
Said done, probably two weeks later I desperatly wanted to finish the page and found the blue star constellation by Dear Lizzy in my stash and knew it was perfect for my Starshine cluster. I then cut the Star Background 2 out of plain white cardstock and originally wanted to back it with the paper which - again - I didn't like.
I then used it as a stencil with embossing paste and really like the texture it gives!
For my title I wanted to use the quote or song or whatever it is saying: I thank my lucky stars for you but didn't find anything like that in the store. I then grabbed the Simple Set Alphabet and Script Alpha 2 and made my own sentiment using a combination of the letters and a few accent stars.
Here are a few detail shots for you:

No Rain No Rainbows August 09, 2016 05:46
Hey everyone, it's Cathy, and I'm back with another layout! This time I decided to use two cut files for my layout, the first one is No Rain No Rainbows, and the second is the Confetti background. I wanted to created a rainfall effect on my background and the Confetti background did the job perfectly! I backed the cut file with a piece of multi-colour paper and I really love the effect. It almost looks like a shower of jellybeans! For my title I used the Rainbow cut file and painted it a variety of colours using my watercolours. I then added white and black splatters and outlined the file to really make it pop off the page! I kept the embellishments minimal since I didn't want to compete with my awesome title and rain effect! I love how bright and cheery this layout turned out and I am super excited to see what other cut file combinations I can come up with using the Just Nick files! Have an awesome day!
Here are the cut files used for this project!
