Hi everyone.  Heather Leopard is here doing what I love most...playing with background cut files! This one in particular is the Nordic Background.

I altered this cut file just a tad, removing the x's that are part of the cut file so that I could hand stitch them instead.  Then I enlarged it to cover the entire page, removing the lower portion since that was going to be covered by patterned paper.

Next, I separated the cut file and traced the outline of one of the snowflakes and offset it just slightly, making it a tad bit larger than the background cut.  I cut the outlined snowflake out of different patterned papers and adhered them here and there to the back of the large cut file.

That's just my way of using cut files (like Nordic Background) to make unique layouts.

Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. I love living in a place where I can enjoy the 4 seasons. In Minnesota, you can always count on snow and cold temps in the winter. You may think that hibernating is the best way to get through ... but there is lots of fun to be had outside still. My sister-in-law's family like to skate and play hockey on a pond in their backyard. I love this picture of them doing what they love together. When I saw the Nordic Background digital cut file I knew it would make the perfect backdrop for their family photo. It adds a cozy feeling, just like a warm sweater. Here is my layout ...

Isn't that cut file amazing! Take a closer look.

This quote I fussy cut out from a journal card ties in with the sweater theme perfectly too; ' We Go Together Like Winter and a Sweater '  ...

Here are a few more close-ups ...

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Holiday and I hope 2017 brings peace and prosperity!
