Hi friends and happy Sunday!

It's Laureen here and I am excited to share a new layout with you!

I love quilts - that's a fact! I love the look of them and their designs and I also love to include them onto my layouts from time to time.

For todays layout I didn't have a specific theme to work with so I decided to incorporate the look of a quilt but without all the handcutting and fun.
Nicole has that awesome Quilted Background cut file in her shop which I haven't used until now!

I shrinked it a little in size to be able to use the design twice but underneath and the deleted a couple of rows, so that th design would only be on the right side of my layout.

The new Elle's Studio Family Fun collection is probably one of my favorite collection that came out this year - so I had to use it, because I absolutely adore the colors!!

I didn't want to handcut each of the squares out of the patterned paper so I simply copied one of those quilt fields and used the Outline feature to create a slight border around it and my patterned paper fit absolutely perfect and saved me a lot of time!

For more of a quilt look I used my sewing machine and stitched one border around the entire layout and then along the small lines within the cut file and love the extra little detail and texture that gives!

Thank you so much for looking!

xo, Laureen

Hi cut file fans - 

I hope you had a great week so far and are looking forward to the weekend and some crafty time - hopefully!

Today my task was to use any design from the store - not that hard right?! You think!

When you have access to all these amazingly beautiful files you have a hard time choosing, believe me. Then, once I found the design I wanted to use, the next question was to just cut it and back it or stitch it.

In the end I defintely wanted to use my Felicity Jane Emeline kit to go along with my picture and knew I would just back my cut file with all the different papers from the kit.

I just love the look of Quilts on layouts and why not use a cut file to achieve that look whitout all the cutting of fiedly tiedly small itty bitty pieces and then all the sewing.

The Quilted Circle Background was just perfect and easy - I modified it in the way, that it didn't cut my entire background, because if you know my crafting you may also be aware that I like my white space ;) Therefore I only let two rows of the Quilt and backed those with all the papers :)

First I started with the inner pieces of the circle and worked my way out. All there was left to do was to embellish around my picture and this layout was done!

Easy peasy - so go ahead and try to achieve a Quilt look for your next layout using a cut file ;)

Have a great day and onto the next time -

xx Laureen

Hi everyone, Michelle here with a layout to share with you today with Jillibean Soup.

 I was lucky enough to receive the fabulous Alphabet Soup II collection to create with.  Wow ... I just love the colours in this collection.  I decided that I really wanted to create a layout using the new 'Quilted Background' cut file using the 'Mixed Veges' patterned paper and then team it up with lots of pops of colour from this collection to create this vibrant layout of my daughter.  At school, when they have been good listeners they get to bring the Listening Bear home with them for some adventures before they head back to school the next day.  

The Pea Pod Parts Die Cuts were the perfect embellishments for my layout - I just love using the word sentiments in die cuts to help portray how I feel about my photo and I ended up using them instead of doing lots of journalling on my layout.  They are perfect for layering and I have done so in a visual triangle to balance out my page.

Thanks so much for visiting the blog today - I hope you are enjoying our design team collaboration with Jillibean Soup! Now for the fun stuff!

Hello folks! Donna here to share my first layout for the month of August.. and wow can't believe we're just a month away from the "-ber" months!

Okay...for this week, I used one of the newest cut files in the Just Nick store. 

Donna Espiritu, Just Nick Studio, fancy Pants Designs Millie and June, layout

I used Clique Kits August kit "Rio" featuring Fancy Pants Designs Millie and June collection

I just kept the bulk of the design elements in the middle of the page. This way, the focus is still on the photos

I used the squares to place some wordarts

I hope you liked my page!

I am thrilled to be returning to the JustNick Studio design team.  I absolutely LOVE working with Nicole's cut files.  Thanks for having me back!

I love using quilt-inspired designs on my projects so my first instinct when I saw the new July files was to use the Quilted Background.  

This layout you see here was not my original plan.  Let me walk you through the thought process of how one thing led to another...

I decided that I wanted to use the file to piece together a background, instead of cutting it out of one piece and using it as an overlay so I cut 4"x4" squares and placed them next to each other across and down the CAMEO mat.  I cut each piece out and as I was pulling it all off the mat, I was really digging the leftover 4"x4" pieces so, onto the paper they went. I kept the other pieces and I am sure you'll be seeing them on another layout VERY soon.

Next, I laid the squares down, overlapping each other and angled just a bit.  The rest was easy - I added some layers behind and above my photo, added embellishments and mist splatters and then added my title.  

About me: I was born and raised in the Lone Star State and live in Cypress, Texas with my family – hubby, 2 daughters, 1 bonus son, and 2 rescue dogs. I lead marketing and thought leadership initiatives for a major tech company but my real passion is playing with paper, glue and scissors. I love to scrap the daily adventures of my family and I aim to capture the essence of whatever it is they are doing. It’s those little details that I love! My signature style includes lots of pattern mixing, matching, and layering in fun and interesting ways. I also design for Shimelle.com and Gossamer Blue.
