Hello Just Nick friends, it's Jaclyn here today. This week the Design Team is zeroing in on the many words and sentiment designs available in the Just Nick store.  This was a fun challenge for me, as I love typography and making my titles stand out on a page.

Spring is in full bloom here in Ohio and even though my allergies might not agree, I am enjoying the pretty blossoms that are popping up all over my yard.  Since many of these flowers only last a short season, I can't resist capturing them on film.  These pretty pictures were inspiring me, so I went to my Just Nick library to pair with them, the perfect title.

The brushstroke style of letters featured in the Good Vibes file immediately caught my eye.  There are four different sentiments included in this cut design. I chose the word 'Bloom', as it was a perfect match to the story I wanted to tell.

As you'll note, the sentiments in this file are encompassed within a circle.  I chose to eliminate the circle portion of the design, as did so simply by 'releasing the compound path' on that portion of the file and sizing the remaining text accordingly.

I couldn't make a flowery, spring-like page without including some of my favorite Just Nick floral designs.  I cut a few different shapes and sizes of the Doodle Flowers out of neutral patterns and sprinkled them throughout my design.  Layering and embellishing each flower gives them presence but still allows the pictures and title to take center stage.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!

This week on the blog we are focusing on using sentiment and phrase cut files.  I created this boyish page, so I wanted something to go along with the theme, and I thought the hashtags cut file was a good match. But this file could be used with so many type of page.

Hashtags 1

 

I used the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection for this page.  On the background, I cut out a large diamond shape from a piece of patterned paper with diamonds on it. I wanted to mimic an argyle pattern, so I machine stitched and hand stitched some larger diamonds to the right.  

 

 

I fussy cut out some of the smaller diamonds and scattered them on the page.

Just a few layers around my photo and some splatters on the background, too.

 I also used the negative space of the diamond to write my journaling and scattered a few more embellies around the page.
