JustNick Cut File Store
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 !

Hello JustNick friends! Nicole here and today I'm creating a layout using the gorgeous new Rustic Ring 2 cut file. As soon as I saw this cut file, I knew it needed paired with the new Jen Hadfield Peaceful Heart and Paige Evans Bungalow Lane collections! here a look at my completed layout and the file:
I just love these clusters of leaves and florals! I backed them using papers from Peaceful Heart, Including backing the circle with the pink and white check. I auditioned many papers from both lines and felt the blue fit the best. It was a nice bold, yet soft, contrast. I felt like the project was missing more of the pink, which then lead me to placing the blue piece on a diagonal. To make this feel more "home" feel, I added stamped stitch lines around the edges of my papers.
I then added a cluster of elements on the bottom left. I loved the "how lucky" and house ephemera. I felt they were perfect for this spread documenting my thanks for my son and how positive his attitude and mindset always is! I felt this space also needed more florals, so I cut several from a sheet of patterned paper.
I then added my photo to the right cluster and brought in the same elements of florals, die cuts and a banner.
Lastly, I added my title around the outside of the frame and two small paint and sequin splashes on the top right and bottom middle of the spread. I felt those two areas needed a little something without taking the focus away from the rest of the layout.
Thanks so much for joining me today! Click HERE to head on over to the shop and grab this file! Be sure to tag us on social media so we can see how you're using the files!

This is such a fun, easy cut file to play with and it makes the PERFECT large title. Instead of creating a traditional Thanksgiving layout with turkey and all the trimmings, I chose to create a gratitude layout.
This cut file is cut out of white cardstock about 10.5 inches tall. I backed the cut file with patterned paper from the Bungalow Lane collection.
On each side of the cut file, I adhered a 3x4 photo and a few embellishments. The journaling is on a tag tucked behind the photo in the upper right corner.
I'm so happy with how this project came together! If you'd like to see how this project came together, you can find a full process video HERE.
I can't wait to see what you create with the Thankful cut file. Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with family and friends.
Happy ! by Sophie Delorme May 10, 2021 07:00
Hey friends !
It’s Sophie on the blog today with a new layout to share !
I used the beautiful Spring Stained Glass cut file for my page.
I cut it on white cardstock. I backed the flowers with Paige Evan’s new collection “Wonders” and the rest of the cut file with velum. I made a chain stitch all around it, added adhesive foam behind it and centered it on a beautiful Wonders patterned paper that couldn’t be more perfect for this circular design !
I printed my photo in black and white to make it stand out around all those springy colors, with a layer of tissue paper behind it.
I embellished around the photo with floral and leaves die cuts from the same collection, added a chipboard sticker for my title and a few Pinkfresh Studio crystals mix.
Here are more close-ups:
I love how it turned out ! This cut file is a must have ! Perfect for any spring themed layouts !

TOGETHER RIGHT NOW by Sophie Delorme September 11, 2020 07:00
Hello JustNick friends !
It's Sophie here today and I am sharing a colourful layout with you !
I used one of the newest cut file in the shop called Boho Florals 3:
I started my design with a white background, playing with mixed media, applying some Distress Oxide inks diluted with water using the packaging technic on my water-colour cardstock.
I cut the cut file on white cardstock as well, and backed it with the beautiful Paige Evans collection named "Truly Grateful" from Pinkpaislee. I carefully stitched the flower with white thread and mounted the centre piece of the flower on adhesive foam for a little extra dimension.
I adhered the cut file on the colourful part of my background to make it stand out.
I put layers of tissue paper, adhesive foam and patterned papers behind my photo and adhered it on the right side of the cut file.
I fussy cut plenty of beautiful flowers and leaves from the Truly Grateful patterned papers and added them to the cut file, and around my photo.
The words of the title are stickers from the same collection.
Finally I wrote down my journaling and added the date !
This page came together easily and quickly, and that's what I like so much about cut files ! Isn't this floral cut file a pure delight ?!
I hope I have inspired you to use it in your own way !
Here are more close-ups.
Thank you so much for stopping by,
Until next time,
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 !
Photo Memories | Kelly Barron May 11, 2020 07:00
Hello friends! Today I have a TN spread to share using the super cute camera from the Photo Memories cut file.
For this particular spread, I wanted to use the cut file as a divider and a place for my journaling. I cut the file on white cardstock and then backed it with bright patterned papers.
To back the cut file I used my silhouette to cut the outline only. Remember that if you do this you need to flip the image to ensure that you cut out the patterned paper correctly.
I used a digital template to print out my photos and then printed it out as one big photo. To keep the page from looking a bit flat, I added a few puffy stickers to add a little dimension. My goal is to keep the album interesting without making it too bulky.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope that this has inspired you to create!
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!
Love Spring | Vicki Parker March 31, 2020 07:00
Hi lovely friends, today I am sharing a colourful spring layout with you.
I used the fabulous Chasing Rainbows cut file available in store here:
I started by using the inverse of the cut file so that I had just the inside rainbow pieces. With watercolours, I painted them in rainbow colours - one colour for each colour in the rainbow. I then backed all of the arcs with foam and stuck them to the layout slightly off the page and cut off the excess.
I then used the same watercolours to add some paint around the arcs to add that extra watercolour effect - I also painted some at the bottom of each side to look like drips.
It gave a nice 'messy' watercolour effect that I was really happy with. I then built the layout using lots of the Paige Evans Bloom Street collection from Pink Paislee and some fabulous acrylic umbrellas from Bramble Fox.
I hope this inspires you to do a rainbow layout for yourself and I'll see you next month! Thanks so much for looking x
Cute Friendship | Claudia van Rooijen December 31, 2019 07:00
Hello friends! Claudia here with you with the last layout of the year - I truly can't believe how fast this year has flown by!
Today I'm sharing a layout I created using the Rosette Background cut file and the beautiful Pick Me Up collection by Paige Evans / Pink Paislee from a few years ago.
As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to use this beautiful ombre paper with the cut file - I really love this color!
Since the collection has a lot of fun colors and I wanted to bring most of them in, I decided to pull out some black and white photos to create a nice contrast. I thought these photos of my cats Joey and Mickey were adorable so how could I not scrap them?
I've been really loving shaped paperclips these days - they are a great way to add interest to any project and I always love an extra touch of gold!
I added some layering behind one of the photos and for the other one I simply used a die cut frame and added some foam tape behind it to add some more dimension to my layout.
The 'Cute' letters are actually from an older Maggie Holmes collection but I figured they would still work quite well with the layout since I wanted to add a little bit of black to it to create more contrast.
Lastly I pulled out this colorful triangle paper from the collection and used it as a border for my layout.
Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you enjoyed seeing the layout. I wish you all a very happy and crafty new year! :-)

Hello JustNick friends! It's Monique here with my very first layout for JustNick for 2019. The assignment for this week was to create a project about our goals for 2019 or to create an "about me" project. I don't normally have goals for any new year, but there's one goal I always set myself (and never manage to achieve) and that is to stop postponing things! I'm such a procrastinator!
So here's a layout about me with my goal for ALL of the years:
I love the cut file I used for this page: "Loads of Love":
Isn't this cut file awesome?! It's so versatile! In this case it stands for "loving my life". I used Paige Evans (Pink Paislee's) Pick-Me-Up collection. I love how colorful this collection is, which is very "me". I added a few bits and pieces from other collections/manufacturers as well, like the little piece of paper with the text, which is from Simple Stories, the green puffy sticker, which is from MAMBI and the white puffy sticker which is from Pinkfresh Studio.
Here are a few close-ups:
Thank you so much for stopping by today to have a look at my page. If you want to check out this cut file or any other "LOVE" cut file in the store, just click HERE.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy 2019!!
THANKFUL FOR THIS BOND | Nathalie DeSousa November 22, 2018 07:00
Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to all our American Friends!
Nathalie with you today with a new layout that celebrates the sweet and special bond between humans and pets. We love our baby so much, and he loves us just as much that i decided to pull a few of the beautiful JustNick studio cut files to create this new page.
I wanted something soft for the background, so i decided to hand stitch the Heart Strings Background with white thread, and then back the heart spaces with colorful hearts cut from the new Whimsical collection.
The curvature of the lines brings so much movement to the layout; and the space created with the stitching was the perfect spot to add some sentiments using the collection's rub-ons or stamped images -that correspond to respective heart color-.
To create the title of this page, the Gratitude cut file was used to cut the word 'Thankful' from white cardstock. This was propped on some foam adhesive onto the layout's background.
Once the picture was placed on the page, i used a few of the Whimsical collection flower ephemera to create clusters around the page. To bring more of the cool tones to the page (tried at best to tone block the clusters), I had to use the Stems 2 cut file to cut some extra leaves from white cardstock, These were then colored with watercolor so that they take the hues in the hearts.
This page is so full of texture and movement. The color of the hearts bring plenty of color and interest to this page,and i just love how it all works together! Remember to stop by JustNick Studio store to check all these cut files. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Have a blessed day!
Go See Do | Rachel Lowe July 25, 2018 07:00
Hi Justnick friends Rachel here!
I have a fun travel layout for you today using this gorgeous cut file which I over sized!
I have scrapped the first page of an album I will be creating of our trip to Croatia, I wanted to create a bright and sunny layout so chose a bright yellow and white striped paper to cut my chosen cut file.
I sized my cut file taking into account the size of my two photos and that I cut the white card stock down to 11x11 inches to I could have a contrast paper (the boat paper fab for my them as a border).
As my cut file is my title and large adding more words or sentiments was going to make it too 'busy' so I have added text to my photos (I use Aviary App) instead.
I placed my photos in the 'spaces' to the left and right of my page, then it was fun time, adding all the gorgeous embellishments. I have used Paige Evans Pick-Me-Up collection. As always I have foam taped some elements so my layout has some height variation.
It is ok to cover some of the title, I just did it in a way that still makes it easy to read.
I have 'framed' my photos by adding embellishments to ensure the eye is drawn to the photos.
Thank you for stopping by today! This is a simple layout but has lots of impact due to the over sized cut file and lots of bright colours.
See you soon x
Everyday....... by Rachel Lowe July 13, 2018 07:30
Hello Justnick friends!
I am so thrilled to be staying on for another term with Justnick and sharing my creations with you!
So here is my first layout of this term.
As most of you know I LOVE background cut files, they add so much texture and visual impact to a layout and I Love white on white even more!
And this is my chosen cut file.
I re sized the quilted circle background cut file to 10x10 inches. My trick to ensure my white on white cut files stand out, I cut two and glue one on top of the other. It really is worth the extra piece of paper for the over all effect.
I have used Turn the Page collection by Paige Evans. I knew I wanted to create a self motivational layout or 'notes to self' as I call it so firstly I cut some quotes from one of the papers and my layout went from there.
I have only paper pieced five of the squares as to avoid my page becoming too 'busy'.
I matted my cut file on several papers, cutting them larger each piece until my layout was 12x12 inches. I then added machine stitching borders around each paper piece.
I embellished each of the quotes to make a little feature of each.
I matted my photo on a and agin added some machine sewing around the edge. I added a quote sticker under my photo which I attached with foam tape to add more height to my layout. I then attached my main title 'everyday' attaching slightly over my photo.
To finish off my layout I fussy cut some butterflies from one of the papers and then attached to my layout in a circular fashion.
And there you have it one textured and pretty layout! And one I will need to revisit and remind my self of the importance of goals, dreams and never taking this wonderful life for granted!
Thank you for stopping by today and having a look. See you again soon!
LOVE YOU | Nathalie DeSousa June 14, 2018 06:30
Nathalie with you today bringing a new layout that combines a few of the Just Nick Studio store's beautiful cut files to create a page all about how much i love my baby (and yes, he is our doggie!)
To create the background of this page, the new Funky Floral Background 2 was used. I isolated just one of the images, and then resize a few copies of the image to create the cascading flower look of the background.
To bring color and dimension to the page, I chose to back all teh flowers with papers from Paige Evans Pick Me Up collection, and then fold the emds of the petals, so that they create the illusion of real petals on the page.
To frame the picture in this layout, first i layered a few pieces of paper behind it, and then used the Ring Around My Heart background cut file to create a small cut out (from white cardstock and one of the collection's papers) that could be used as a layer/frame around the picture.
To create the title of this page, I chose to cut the "Love You" sentiment from the You Make My Heart Smile design from two different papers from the collection. Then glued them together with an offset, and prop them up with some foam adhesive on the layout.
Just love how easy and and colorful this page turned out. I love the cascading florals in the background and the color combination of the rest of the cut outs created with the beautiful Just Nick Studio cut files.
Stop by the JustNick store to check these cut files and the many more designs available.
Thanks for stopping by!
Thankful for Mom | Morgan Langley May 6, 2018 07:00
Hey crafty friends! Today I am sharing a post for mom's week on the Just Nick blog using the "floral frames" cut file!
I love ALL the beautiful floral cut feels in the shop and all of them make great spring layouts! I started by cutting my frames and backing them with patterned papers from the "Turn the Page" collection. I love how much color this adds. I also watercolored my plain white background before adhering the frames with the packaging technique and some splatters! I tried to match the paint to colors in the collection!
Celebrate today | Laureen Wagener May 2, 2018 11:17 1 Comment
Hi you guys and welcome back to the blog!
Today it's my turn to share a new layout with you and I am totally in love with my project! I went back to the basics for this one, just to what I started with - cut files and simple backing!
I am totally crushing on the new Medallion cut file and used it for my project.
I cut it out of white cardstock at almost 12".
For my papers I decided to make a small dent in my hoarded Fancy Free stash.
I am still so loving this collection and it is still one of my all time favorites. It's so fresh and fun and just lovely!
I backed every open space of the cut file with a different pattern which was a little time consuming but so so worth it!
Then I grabbed my picture and started embellishing the entire page.
I kept my embellishments to a minimum to have the cut file plus all the colors and papers be the star of the scene!
It wouldn't be a Laureen layout without some spray mist, so I sprinkled some black Heidi Shine to finish off my layout.
I am totally going back to create these layouts more often! While scrapping I noticed how much I am missing these classic "old- school" cut file backing, playing with patterned paper layouts.
I hope you enjoyed todays post!
Have a great day,

Never stop smiling | Laureen Wagener March 31, 2018 08:02
Hi cut file friends,
I hope you are doing great and will have an Easter weekend full of fun and good weather!
I have a new page to share to put you in the mood for spring to really kick in - featuring lots and lots of flowers!
I started by choosing a background paper and found a pretty old but lovely striped ledger paper. I knew I would use a larger cut file on top of it. I prepped the background with white acrylic paint and used different spray mists on top of it.
Then I cut out the Flower Power cut file out of some white cardstock and adhered vellum behind the floral openings in the middle.
I then simply added my picture and my title on top. I used floral embellishments from the Pick me Up collection by Paige Evans and scattered them around my photo and layout.
And easy as that, this page was done! Nothing too fancy here, just bright and cheerful to get over the wintery weather!
Have a happy easter and a great weekend!

Hey | Maryám Pérez March 29, 2018 07:00
Hello Friends! Maryám here and today I'm going to share with you a new project using the Basic Flowers 2. This is the flowers week here at the blog, so that's why I decided to use the cut file I mentioned before.
What I did was cut the flowers several times and each one has a different size. Once I have them all cut, I curved the edges of the flowers and I adhered them together. Each flower has three layers.
Here you will be able to see more details.
Here are some close-ups:
You & Me | Jen McMurtrey January 27, 2018 07:00
Hello JustNick friends!
The project began with my duplicating the file in several sizes and cascading it down the page. I cut it on white card stock, backed it with a floral-patterned paper (Paige Evans' Turn the Page collection), and splattered it with ink.
I continued with the same file and used the offset feature on my Silhouette to create the next set of hearts. Once this was cut, I used several of the patterned papers and backed the heart clusters in a rainbow-like color scheme. This piece was adhered to the white card stock over the previously cut hearts with foam squares.
My photo was next and it was backed with patterned paper and placed on top of the hearts. Since the layout was already very bright, I printed the photo in black and white.
Embellishments were next and I clustered several of the floral die cuts from the same Paige Evans collection around the photo. I placed my title next and also added some bunches of white thread for more texture.
I journaled a bit below the photo and placed puffy flower stickers and enamel dots on the page.
At the last minute, I added the gold washi tape down the left side to anchor everything.
Thank you for visiting today and I hope you are inspired to create! Be sure to visit the JustNick shop for this and many other files for your projects.
SWEET GIRLS | NATHALIE DESOUSA January 1, 2018 07:00
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!!
Nathalie with you today, bringing you the first project of 2018 (can you believe it is a New Year already!).
I have had this picture in my scrapbook file for a while waiting for the right cut file, and when i saw the new Magic Carpet Background, the idea popped into my head.
To create this background, I isolated only the full images of the cut file, and then copy them in a tile formation. Using the Silhouette software, the image was moved until it matched the angle of the picture, and then set to cut from white cardstock.
Each image was then backed by a different paper from the Paige Evans' "Turn The Page" collection (one of my fave collections from 2017!). Using a bone folder, the centers of the motifs were slightly creased as to create the dimension in the background.
Just a few embellishments were needed to complement and frame the picture. I wanted the picture to balance the background, so I chose to keep it Black and White so that it stands out from the colorful background.
The title of this page was created using the "Girl Power" and "Lower Case Alpha" cut files from papers from the collection. Each letter and word was cut twice, and glued together, a bit of foam adhesive adds the dimension to the word "sweet".
I hope this serves as inspiration for the start of a new year! Stop by the Just Nick Studio store to check these and all the cut file designs available.
Remember i am a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.
See you all soon!
Shaker Tags | Maryám Pérez November 30, 2017 07:00
Hello, Friends! Maryám here to share with you two shaker tags I made using Just Nick cut files.
I love shaker cards, but I wanted to do something a bit different that's why I chose tags. The steps are basically the same as a shaker card, the only difference is that you have to cut the tag two times because with the second one you will back the first tag (the one which has the shaker pocket).
Here are the final tags.
And some close-ups:
Here are the cut files I used. From the first set I only used the tags and from the other, I used one bird and a heart.
That's it for today, friends! Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day!
Small Joys - Cathy Martin November 20, 2017 07:00
Hi everyone! It's Cathy here and I'm up on the Just Nick blog today with a layout about being grateful for the small joys in life. Sometimes when everything is getting overwhelming it's nice to take a step back and think about all the small simple things that can be enjoyed. Whether it's the crisp smell of the cool air, laying down in a beautiful pile of leaves, or wrapping up in your favorite cozy sweater, these little things that sometimes seem so silly can be a huge help in keeping you grounded.
For my layout I chose the Leaf Circle Background cut file. I loved how it could be interpreted as a leaf, or a petal, or even a feather. I cut it out of teal cardstock just for a bit of a change-up from my usual white cardstock. I backed it with paper starting from the center ring and going outwards. so that it was the same paper on each ring all the way around. I used a mixture of old and new papers to back the cut file and then it was time to decide what to do for a background paper. Originally I wanted to use a patterned paper, but after trying to decide for over an hour I gave up. I ended up finding this dark wood grain and I really liked how it paired well with the dark colors in the photo. To add a little extra detail I painted tiny white dots in acrylic paint around the outer perimeter of the cut file.
For embellishing I primarily used products from the Turn The Page collection. It paired well with the colors I was using and many of the phrases were perfect for the mood I was trying to set. I also used some wood veneers to add an earthiness to the layout and I found some older burlap embellishments from the Craft Market collection from Crate Paper to top it off. I added some Heidi Swapp color shine in two different pinks to break up the large space between clusters.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my project today! I think it's important for us as memory keepers to not only document family and events, but to document our lives and our ups and downs as we go through life!

Awesome Girl - Cathy Martin September 25, 2017 07:00
Hi everyone, it's my turn up on the blog today and I'm continuing to work with the All Boy cut file! On my last blog post I used several of the words that came with the cut file, but so as to not waste a single bit of paper I added the word "awesome" before I sent the file through my Silhouette. I didn't know what I would end up doing with it, but I knew that since it was something I could use for almost any layout I decided to cut it. I'm so glad I did, because I used it for this layout! A layout that is definitely All Girl :)
I backed the cut file with bright, bold and fun papers from my stash ( I have some drawers of papers that I keep specifically for the purpose of backing cut files) and then I chopped the word in half so it would fit on my page better, since the background paper I had chosen had an illustration in the lower left hand side. I decided to go for a funky, whimsical, and slightly minimalistic feel, and I experimented with my photo by cutting out my daughter from the background. This is a new technique for me, though I know it's been around for quite awhile. I am super happy with the results!
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look-see today! You can also check out my Youtube channel to see my process video too!
Rooting for Our Home Team | Jennifer McMurtrey September 5, 2017 07:00
Hey everyone! It's Jen today sharing one last summer layout before I go into full-on fall mode - you've been warned! LOL!
The story behind this layout is kind of funny because we live in Washington state and have never been to a Mariners game. While we were in California in June we had tickets to see the Angels and they just so happened to be playing the Mariners. Because it was only a few days until the Fourth of July, the stadium was handing out these fun hats to everyone as they came in the doors. My son Caleb had several on his head at once and I snapped this cute photo of him.
I cut the file using patterned paper from the Paige Evans Turn the Page collection and used the negative as a stencil of sorts for my watercolors. I adhered white cardstock to a piece of patterned paper and then painted the main focal area of the layout.
Once the watercolors had dried, I placed the stars over the top and adhered with foam dots. Next, I used some of the negative star cuts and placed them within the larger stars.
With the stars in place, I laid my photo over them and again used foam dots to adhered it to the page.
Next, I used a tag, chipboard stars and die cuts from the same Paige Evans collection. My final step was to add a puffy sticker, enamel dots, and the title using items from Pinkfresh Studio along with a bit of journaling.
I love being able to use cut files to personalize my projects, and I love the fun element they add to the layout! Be sure to visit the JustNick shop for this and many other great cut files!
Thank you for stopping by!
Smile Forever | Maryám Pérez August 3, 2017 07:00
Hello, Friends! Maryám here to share a layout with you today. I love to take photos and specialty when we go to walk or a trip. For today's project, I'm using one of the photos I took in a walk to a park near of our house. I wanted to do a colorful background and to try to challenge myself to don't use only white backgrounds in my layouts, and I think I did it!
Here are some close-ups:
For my title, I used the Outline Alpha and I backed it with a polka dots paper, and over it, I put a silver glitter word that says "forever".
I also created 3D flowers, and How I did them? I cut 3 layers of each flower, but I changed the size of them, so all of them were different.In that way, I was able put them over each other.
Here are the cut-files I used:
I hope you liked this layout, and don't forget to visit the shop to get more cut files. Thanks for stopping by.
See you soon.

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!
