Hello JustNick Studio friends!

Marcia here today. One of the things I love about Christmas most now that my kids are adults are their homecomings around the holidays... and not just Christmas. Homecomings can occur any time during the year and I think they are always joyous occasions! So I thought I would scrap one of those homecomings using the Joyful title to show you it can be used all year around.

I cut the Joyful title out twice to make my title more interesting. I trimmed out the pieces I wanted by hand and layered them in some cases using pop dots to add dimension.

I also used pieces of the Star Background 2. I hate throwing scraps of paper away. When you cut out this digital cut file, you could use both the positive and the negative pieces! Because the Joyful title had stars, I dug out these stars I had cut previously. The color was a good match with the pattern paper. You can't go wrong with stars ... they are perfect for guy layouts when you don't want to use flowers.

Here are the digital cut files I used today...

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you capture some joyous moments this holiday season! Happy Holidays!

Hey Friends! Maryám here to share with you a layout using the "Star Background 2" Cut File. I had some stuff from the Glitter Girl collection over my desk and I thought the cut file will match perfectly with it.

Here is what I have created:

Once I had the cut file backed with all of the papers I put some foam dots behind of it because I wanted it to have a little bit of dimension.

Here are some close-ups:

I hope you liked my layout. Let me know if you have any questions.
Have a wonderful day!

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:

As a mom with three boys, I definitely have a thing for stars.  So when I saw the newest Star Background 2 from JustNick I was thrilled!  I had been wanting for awhile (like since February) to write about my youngest son's new bed and bedtime routine.  A star background gave me the perfect excuse to finally record that memory!

I am big on trying to record memories of moments that I know I will otherwise forget - this is one of those! I started with cutting out the Star Background 2 and then used that as an overlay over white cardstock.  I knew I needed to use something to ground the pictures and opted for the Stitched Circle.

Instead of leaving all of the stars white - I added some of them back into the overlay.  They are still there but a little more discreet and I like the way that breaks things up a bit!

I also went through and added in some star string art....connecting the points in the stars.  Again, I just did that to some.  The rest were left white or got a little wooden star added.  This is a really fun background that you are going to love - think of all the possibilities from camping to love to sports!  We can't wait to see what you create with it!
