I thank my lucky stars for you August 11, 2016 07:00 4 Comments

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:

Hey there friends!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am excited to be bringing you a new layout that I created using some of the brand new cut files in the Just Nick Store!

I created a travel layout as soon as I saw the 'Around the World' cut file..... it went perfectly with the Starshine collection from Shimelle! I only used the plane from this set and cut it out on vellum.....

I absolutely love this Striped Alpha Cut file set! It looks great with a paper backed behind it for some extra pop of colour! 

I added some embellishments, machine stitching and some splats of mist to finish off! 

Thank you so much for joining me today! Be sure to check out the Just Nick store for all the awesome new cut files.........new ones are added all the time so check them out!

Happy cutting and creating!

Tarrah x
