Heart - Leslie Berner February 20, 2019 07:00
Hi scrappy friends! It's Leslie on the blog today. I used the cut file called My Heart.
I only use the word "Heart" and copied it unto my page 5 times, staggering them and then welding them together. This is what it looked like in my software.I used plain white smooth card stock.
I decided I wanted to do some backing. and backed three of the "Heart" words with patterned paper from the Paige Evans Whimsical collection. I backed the first, third and fifth word.
The rest went pretty quickly, I fussy cut one of the big floral clusters from one of the other patterned papers from the collections and nestled my photo between the cut file and the floral cluster.
Next, I scattered some of the enamel shapes around the layout and added some small chipboard pieces that fit into the little open spaces. Lastly I splattered some black Heidi Swapp color shine in the top right hand corner and added a roughly drawn border around the edge of the layout.
Here are some close ups.
Here is the final layout...

Happy Girl - Cathy Martin May 25, 2018 08:13
Hi everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout! So on my last blog post I used the Funky Floral Background and I cut it out of white card stock and created a stencil with it. Now since I used white card stock I didn't want to throw away the floral background, so I kept it, and this week I'm using it as my background file for my layout!
Since it was already sprayed in a rainbow of fun shimmery colors I didn't have too much work to do. I simply popped it up on foam and picked a funky watercolor inspired striped background. Since my last layout featured my daughter and I, I used a photo of my husband and daughter this time. I like the juxtaposition of using the same cut file twice to create layouts with different main subjects. Of course since there were so many bright fun colors being used it was easy to embellish the layout, and I had no issue using whatever icons I wanted!
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look, and I hope I've inspired your creativity. As always, have an awesome day!
Let's Celebrate Mothers - Cathy Martin May 12, 2018 07:00
While I find it easy to take selfies, I find it can be a bit trickier to get a good picture of me with one of my little rugrats, so when I do get a chance I take what I can get! As much as I love documenting my children's moments, as well as my own, it always makes me smile when I can scrap a picture with us together. I want them to remember me, and it's important for us moms to sometimes get out from behind the camera and get in those pictures too!
For my layout I decided to cut out the Funky Floral Background cut file. I cut it out of white cardstock because I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to do with it, but after it was all cut out I decided to use it as a stencil. This is another favorite technique and since I cut it with white paper I can still use the cut file on another layout! I sprayed over it with several different color mists, creating a bit of a rainbow effect. I'm not much of a rainbow girl, but I was soooooo happy with the end result. In order to showcase as much of the background as possible I used a large acetate sheet as my title so that you can still see behind it! For having no ideas when I started I am thrilled with the result!
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look-see today!
2 Girls & 2 Trikes | Cathy Martin April 28, 2018 08:00
Hi everyone! I'm excited to be back with another layout for JustNick and this layout is very special to me because it's the first one I have done using pictures from my childhood of my sister and I. The picture isn't very good quality, since it's a scan from an original photo from the 80's. Now because the picture isn't the best quality, I had to keep it small, so I needed a big, fun, bold background to take up the rest of the space! I ended up choosing the Sunburst Circle background cut file, because it reminded me of bicycle tires. Since the picture was so vintage I decided to go full on vintage with my paper choices and embellishments. I absolutely adore the final layout, and I hope you like it too! Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hoppy Easter - Cathy Martin March 28, 2018 08:00
Hey everyone! March is winding down and with Easter only a few days away I thought I would share a hoppy layout with you. Whenever I make a layout about Easter I always think of fun colours and florals, so I really wanted to incorporate lots of fun patterns in my page. I used the Half Shell Background 2 and cut it out of white cardstock. It just screamed EGGS to me! I'm not even sure if the cut file is supposed to be eggs, but I thought it was a perfect fit, and it had lots of spaces for me to back with lovely papers. I used a combination of papers and products from Paige Evans Turn the Page as well as lots of stuff from my stash.
You Make My Heart Smile - Cathy Martin February 25, 2018 07:00
Hey all, it's Cathy and I'm back with another layout to share with you! This time I decided to use a cut file as a mask and use some spray mist to spray over it. This isn't really a new or different technique, but it's one that I've used several times before and I love the end results.
So for my layout I used the You Make My Heart Smile cut file. This file actually comes with several different phrases and I cut 3 of them out, though I only used 2 for my page, but I just tucked the other one aside for another time! I used a spare piece of cardstock that I had laying around, since I wasn't worried about keeping the file after I had sprayed it, though you could cut if from white cardstock and then keep the altered file for another project, kind of a two for one deal!
Since my spray title took up one side of my layout I used a bunch of patterned paper strips to fill the other side. I dug into my stash and scraps and used up some older papers that I had been wanting to use for a while. This was a great way to really use up lots of papers that are just laying around. I didn't need much in the way of embellishments since the title and papers were already so bold!
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look, and don't forget to check out the shop for lots of amazing designs!
Tug At My Heart - Cat Martin February 16, 2018 15:45
It's a week of love here on the JustNick blog, and I'm definitely feeling it! I really wanted to use some older products along with some new products to finally scrap some photos that I have been setting aside for quite awhile! I used the very cute Heart Strings background cut file, as it was the perfect one for tucking photos in!
I didn't cut it very large, because I wanted to have some room for embellishments, but since I cut it out of navy blue paper it still stands out, and it matches well with the Main Squeeze collection from Crate Paper! I love how this layout turned out. It's a Valentines Day layout that is slightly different than usual layouts!
Thank you so much for stopping by, and have an awesome day!
Starburst Layout! | Morgan Langley January 23, 2018 07:00
Hey crafty friends! Today I am sharing a fun layout I created using the "starburst" cut file and a sparkler picture I had from New Years!
I turned the cut file vertical and backed it with papers from Pink Pasilee's "Turn the Page". It was easiest to use the white stars that the cameo cut out as templates for backing, cutting them a little larger and then gluing them behind. I added ephemera from the collection, splatter paints, sequins, and fussy cut stars from the 12x12 pad and the 6x6 pad.
I love these positive speech bubbles from the 6x6 pad and thought they went perfect for this New Year's spread!
Thank you so much for stopping by and make sure to check out this fun cut file on the Just Nick Studios page! Follow me on instagram @morewithmorganl for more layouts!
Let it Snow - Cathy Martin December 27, 2017 07:00
Hey everybody! It's Cathy here and I'm back with a layout inspired by a winter scene. I used the Frosted Windowpane cut file and created a layout about the lovely calmness of a winter morning. This cut file is just lovely and I cut it out of white cardstock. I decided to just back it with one colour of paper, but it could be backed with a multitude of papers as well to create an amazing ombre effect!
Since this cut file goes in the corner of a layout it was easy to figure out how to design my page! I just cut another paper on a diagonal and placed it in the opposite corner. I also cut out a paper frame to encase my entire layout. Overall I love the fun and whimsical scene created using this file along with embellishments that emphasized my theme! Thank you so much for stopping by!
14 Days of Giveaways - Day 13 | Morgan Langley December 13, 2017 07:00 2 Comments
Welcome to Day 13 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-14, 2017 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!
This cut file was SO fun to use! I cut the tags different sizes using a mix of kraft, white, and patterned card stock. Then I backed the cut outs with another scrap of paper and was ready to add some stitching accents!
On some of the tags I used a ruler to mark straight, different sized lines with a pencil and then stitched them, some I stitched around the image, others I stitched snowflakes, and a couple I did some french knot stitches!
I put thread or bakers twine through the hole of each tag and put adhesive so they would stay in position on my layout!
For my background I just sewed on some scraps of Christmas paper with my sewing machine using a mix of white and red threads. I added my photo and some wood snowflakes and Christmas trees and then the layout was complete!
Thank you for stopping by and make sure to get this file (HOLIDAY TAGS 2) today FREE with the code TAGFREE at checkout! Come back tomorrow for the 14th Day of giveaways!
14 Days of Giveaways - Day 7 - Cathy Martin December 7, 2017 07:05 2 Comments
Hi everyone I'm up on the blog today and I'm using this gorgeous Joyful cut file! Just for today you can get this cut file for free by using the code JOYFREE2 This really is a very lovely cut file, and even though it's part of Nicole's Christmas giveaway I decided to use it for a slightly different layout. I used it for a winter layout, with a picture that was taken at the end of January. Even the word Joy can be versatile, and if there is something that I cannot say enough about Nicole's cut files it is that they can be used in soooooo many ways!
For my layout I used a combination of products from the Snow and Cocoa collection as well as the Turn the Page collection. It might seem like a bit of a strange pairing but there were some overlapping color schemes that helped me bring in more colors than just pink and teal. I used the offset feature in Silhouette Studio to create an outline for the cut file. I then used patterned paper to cut out the outline and white paper for the middle. Propping it all up with foam gave just the right amount of dimension and interest! I am so happy with the simplicity and sense of wonder and joy that comes across through all the elements.
Thank you for joining me today and I hope you go and grab your free cut file, and don't forget to stop by each day for the next 7 days for more cut files and inspiration!
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!
Colorful Watercolor Polygon! | Morgan Langley November 16, 2017 07:00
Hey Spidey! - Cathy Martin October 27, 2017 06:00
Hey everyone! It's almost Halloween! I love this holiday, and I love the versatility of making layouts for it, because you don't just have to go with traditional colors and icons. For instance in the layout I created using the Hey Spidey cut file, I went with blues, reds, black and lots of other colors to create a Spiderman themed layout. I had a 12 x 12 paper that had various comic book panels and I used it to back some of the cut file, as well as a few other papers from my stash. I didn't over-embellish my layout either, since it really didn't need it, there is already so much going on that a minimal approach worked well. You could, in fact, use any cut file to create a Halloween themed layout! Thank you so much for stopping by, and have an awesome day!
Hello Fall! | Morgan Langley October 2, 2017 07:00
Hello crafty friends, Morgan here! I can not believe it is already October! For my layout today I used the "Bare Tree" cut file and made the tree not so bare by using the leaves included in the file and adding them onto my tree!
For my background I added some light pink, yellow, and orange watercolor splatters and cut my leaves from different colored card stock. Some of the leaves have more intricate pieces so I used the "double cut" feature on my Silhouette Cameo to get clean lines. Then I backed them onto white card stock to make them thicker and more durable for stitching. I stitched around them using corresponding thread colors. I love what paper embroidery adds to the layout!
For my photo cluster I used various Dear Lizzy ephemera and some of the cut file leaves that I hadn't yet stitched behind my photo. I also added in some floral pieces I had and a cute flair button with a wood grain background. I love how cute that little bunny piece is and thought it went in nicely!
Thank you for reading! Make sure to check out Just Nick on Instagram to see more fun posts using the fall cut files and follow me on Instagram @morewithmorganl for all my crafty updates! Also make sure to go to the Just Nick store to get some of these beautiful files!
Live Today - Cathy Martin August 11, 2017 07:00
Hi everyone! I can't believe we are almost halfway through August! Where oh where has the summer gone. Well I know for myself I am still going to be scrapping fun and bright layouts for just a little bit longer before I switch and start focusing on the awesomeness of autumn scrapping. With that in mind this week is circles week and we are focusing on cut files that are circular. This, for me, is seriously no problem, I LOVE all of Nicole's circular cut files!
For the layout I created I chose the Floral Ring 3 cut file, and I cut it out in a very primary, bright blue. Now here is where the challenge is because this colour of blue is not one that I would usually use, but I really wanted to give myself a bit of a challenge as well as get a chance to use up products that would match well with the blue that I chose!
After much hmming and hahing and not being able to make a decision on patterned paper I finally was able to back the cut file and choose a background paper that really went well together. I used products from Pinkfresh Studio and Pretty Little Studio to finish off the layout!
Thank you all so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out my process video to see how it all came together! Thanks so much for stopping by and have an awesome day!
Dream Today - iNSD 2017 May 6, 2017 07:00
Hello hello hello!!! It's Cathy here and I'm so excited to be participating in the celebrations here on the JustNick Blog! We will have several different designers posting through the day and there will be a free cut file to go along with the posts! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the page to get your code :)
So for my layout I actually used 3 different cut files! I used the Dreamcatcher 1 cut file, the Feathers 2 cut file, and the Sweater Weather cut file. I decided to finally get in on the dreamcatcher fad, you know, considering that it's almost over! Well let me tell you, this turned out even better than I expected, and although I had to be patient when it came to cutting out the feathers and gluing everything down, the actual design came together super quick! Don't forget to pop over to my YouTube channel to see my process video!
I did a little mixed media behind my dreamcatcher before I glued it down, and I love the addition of the white feathers with my patterned paper feathers. It really brought a level of dreamy whimsy that I had wanted in my layout! If you haven't tried a dreamcatcher yet then I suggest you grab yourself the feather and dreamcatcher cut file and get to work, you won't be disappointed!
You can grab the Dreamcatcher 1 cut file for FREE using the code: DREAM2FREE at checkout now until May 7, 2017 only!
Little Magic March 22, 2017 07:00
Hello hello hello it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout! I don't know about you but even though it's still bitterly cold and gloomy in my region of the world I can't help but long for the beautiful colours of spring! For my layout today I was inspired by all the fun and colourful scraps that I have in my stash. Some are relatively new and some are from years ago, but either way I loved combining them together to make this fun image! I used the Rosette Background 2, and originally I was using it as intended, as flowers, but once I was all done backing it I really loved how much it looked like wonky bubbles, so I decided to document my daughter's bubble blowing adventure last spring. Backing the cut file with multiple papers was a wee bit time consuming, but I just love the end result! Thanks so much for stopping by and if you go to my Youtube channel you can check out how I made my layout!
Follow your dreams | Geometric Background 2 |Michelle Whorwood March 16, 2017 07:00
Michelle here with a new masculine layout featuring the Geometric Background 2 cut file. This type of background is a perfect one for layouts of the boys in our lives and I wanted to utilise the different geometric shapes in the file to make little mini pocket style elements within the grid shapes. I also wanted to share how you can adapt the cut files once you have downloaded them in the Silhouette software to make them your own and to work with your design. This is the original file:
As you can see the original cut file is more A4 size and I wanted to widen the windows on the right hand side so I could fit my square photo and have more space to fit my embellishments. To do this, after I traced the file, I right hand clicked on it to ungroup (release compound path). I then dragged the outer border to fill my 12 x 12 inch space on the Silhouette software. I then dragged the rectangle shapes out to meet my new enlarged border. When I was happy with their size and shape, I regrouped the cut file and proceeded to cut it out. This is the finished layout:
I cut the file out on white cardstock and layered it back on white cardstock and filled in most of the diagonal negative spaces with patterned paper. I added my photo to the largest rectangle shape and added some fringing to the bottom as it was a square photo and didn't actually quite fill the shape - the illusion of another line on the cut file is actually a white border on my photo and added some embellishments to the other negative spaces.
I then added the large title wood veneer and the little frames which hold the initials of my son, Liam's name and matched diagonal slope of the cut file and finished off with some sequin stars and small word phrases which matched the sentiment of my layout.
I hope you have enjoyed my layout I have shared with you today? Do you alter cut files to suit your style or to fit the type of layout you are doing? Maybe you would like to try this technique one day if you haven't already?
Thanks Michelle xx

Hey everybody it's Cathy here, back with another layout for JustNick Studio and Scrapbook Circle! The Scrapbook Circle kit for March was loaded with bright colours and funky designs. I really wanted to showcase all of those fun papers and colours so I chose the dreamcatcher background 1. There were lots of awesome spaces to back with papers! I used a small star stamp to create a fun pattern around where my cut file would rest and then popped my file up on some foam for added dimension. Since all the products worked so perfectly together embellishing was a piece of cake! A big thank you to Nicole and Scrapbook Circle for this awesome team up!
All of Me Loves All of You February 3, 2017 06:00
Hey everyone! Cathy here with a fun lovey dovey layout for you all. I absolutely love the All of Me cut file and I knew immediately that I wanted to see it in black with gold ink splatters on it, so with that for the basis of my layout I set out to find a picture of my husband and I! I ended up printing one that wasn't the best quality, but that I loved anyway, so I just kept it black and white and made it a very small photo, that way the title could really take centre stage. I love the idea of adding other textures on my layouts so I used some beautiful striped ribbon to compliment my page. I fussy cut out a cute little bird from the Maggie Holmes Gather collection. I loved how well those Pinkfresh Studio hearts from the Indigo Hills collection matched with all my colours so I added lots of those too! I absolutely love how well a tiny photo tucks in around my big title, it brings a feeling of cohesion and unity to all the elements going on in my layout. Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out my process video on my YouTube channel to see how this layout came together and to see what happens when you have a terrible accident while scrapping!
Follow Your Heart it Knows the Way January 27, 2017 07:00
Hey everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout! This time I'm using the fantastic Going My Way background cut file. I mean, who doesn't love arrows! I love how these arrows are all intersecting, it's such a funky looking cut file! I cut it out of white cardstock and put it over a woodgrain background. I just love the look of a white cut file over top of woodgrain paper :) I can't get enough of it, and these arrows fit perfectly with my theme! I also used lots of the older Crate Paper Journey collection as well to really accent my theme! Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop over to my YouTube channel to see how I made this layout!
Ho Ho Ho - Cat Martin December 29, 2016 07:00 1 Comment
Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday celebration, and cheers to us fast approaching a new year! I don't know about you guys but I will definitely be glad to see 2016 go in some respects, but in others I was so happy for many of the experiences gained during the year. I am loving my time here on the JustNick design team and I adore her files, so I'm so glad to share another one with you all today! So even though Christmas is done, that just means for me that it's time to get scrapping all of those wonderful photos and memories while it's still wintery white outside. I absolutely adored the Holiday Tree cut file when she put it up in the shop and I knew I needed to use it asap so I decided not to wait until next Christmas and to use it for a holiday photo now! My original plan for this layout was to use a picture of my son and to use a gray/brown wood grain paper as my background, but after stumbling on this funky turquoise Websters Pages paper I changed up my game plan and used a picture of my daughter instead. I love the funky, eclectic look of the layout and all the bright fun pops of colour and bling throughout!

Hello Awesome August 12, 2016 07:00
Me by Tarrah McLean July 13, 2016 07:00
Tarrah here with you today! I am super excited to be staying on the Just Nick team for another term! Huge thanks to Nicole for having me on the team once again! I absolutely LOVE cut files and include them on 90% of my layouts!
We were all asked to create a layout about ourselves...I recently changed my profile picture on Facebook to one of my favourite photos of myself (there aren't too many of those I can assure you ;)) so I decided to print it out and use that one for my page.
I'm not normally a flower person if you know me and my style but I had that gorgeous Illustrated Faith 'She Blooms' paper left over from my May Hip Kit and decided the Doily Background cut file would work perfectly with the paper! I cut it out with my Cameo and turned it around until I was happy with how it looked on my layout!
I added lots of different types of embellishments like, chipboard, wood veneer, puffy stickers, flair and enamel dots to help the cut file pop off the page and by using a black and white photo it makes the colour pop too!
Thanks so much for joining me on the Just Nick blog today!

Help me welcome Marcia Dehn-Nix to the team!
Hello, My name is Marcia. I am married to the most wonderful guy and we live in Minnesota (where winters are way too long and summers are way too short). We have three adult kids. Our oldest just finished college and got married! Another is studying to be a Vet. My youngest is not sure what he wants to do but is working toward a Math/Physics degree.
I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years. My scrapbooking evolved out of a love for photography. In fact, I used to be a wedding photographer! Besides my love for all forms of paper crafting, I have a soft side when it comes to cute, furry animals. My family fosters kittens and puppies on occasion for a local rescue. Currently in residence is the family dog Satchel, and 3 cats; Delta, Spook, and Xena (my latest stray acquisition). I do have a 9-5 job working as a software engineer. Yup, I am a nerd too.

Meet Jaclyn Rench ! June 5, 2015 07:00 2 Comments
We are happy to share with you another talented lady to join our team in 2015.
I'm Jaclyn Rench, a stay-at-home mommy to three awesome kids and wife of 13 years to a super supportive husband. By day I spend my hours kissing boo-boos, refereeing squabbles, planning playdates, packing lunches, shuffling children from here to there, and trying to figure out what in the heck to fix for dinner that is healthy AND something my kids will eat! Once my kids are tucked into bed, however, you can find me at my crafting desk into the wee hours of the night and early morning, documenting the stories and memories that come out of those non-stop busy days. I hope someday my scrapbooks will give my children a good reminder of the memories of their childhood and a sense of just how much they are loved.

Meet Aurelie Cormier June 4, 2015 07:00 8 Comments
Help me welcome Aurelie Cormier to the team!
I originally hail from Cheticamp, a beautiful Acadian village right on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, NS. Studying in Moncton, I quickly fell in love with NB and have been a permanent resident since 2005. I now reside in Dieppe with my husband, Mathieu, our six-year old son, Louis-Olivier, our one-year old daughter, Éloïse, and our cat, Caillou. Since 2007, I am a public servant by day and a full-fledged scrapper by night.
Scrapbooking has become an integral part of my life. I try doing something scrapbook-related every day, may it be working on a layout, browsing through online galleries or reading scrapbook magazines. Published in a few editions of Canadian Scrapbooker and most recently in France's own Histoires de Pages, my style has been known to be called "rustic", which is fine by me as it enables me to relish in fattening things up with layers, dimension, tearing and texture. Other than scrapbooking, I have rekindled a romance with reading through a monthly book club I joined at work in February 2012. I also tutor, teach voice classes and sing most weekends at a few church services around the area.

Meet Lee-Anne Thornton June 3, 2015 07:00 4 Comments
Meet Lee-Anne Thornton!
I am married to my best friend Rick and have three great kids, a son who is 15, a daughter 28 that is married and a son 30 that is married. Both of my married children live about 200 miles away. While my 15 year old son is at school, I love to scrapbook in my studio.
I began my wonderful scrapbooking journey in 2001 and it's been quite the ride! In the past 3 years, I have been honored to be published in several scrapbooking magazines including Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine and Scrapbook And Cards Today and have served on a variety of design teams.
My other passions besides scrapbooking are cooking, baking, photography, flowers, animals and going to the mountains near where I live. I am very excited to be asked to join the first ever Just Nick Design Team and to put my much loved Silhouette Cameo to work!
Here is a sample of Lee-Anne's work using one of our cut files:

Meet Guiseppa Gubler! June 2, 2015 07:00 4 Comments
Let's kick things off by announcing our first DT member - Guiseppa Gubler!
Usually when I throw out my name Guiseppa, most people never forget who I am. I think having a unique name has been fun and really helpful in many aspects of my life, including scrapbooking...like I said, most people never forget the name. I have been scrapbooking for about 20 years now.
I jumped on the scrapbooking band wagon when it was so new, so I have seen a lot of changes in the industry. I spend a lot of time scrapbooking (one of the benefits of having children in school all day). I have now created over 80 albums since I began. I like to think of myself as a clean scrapbooker, but I love dimension on my pages and find my self going through huge amounts of foam adhesive. I enjoy scrapbooking so much that about five years ago I dove into the design team world. I have been published in many print and online magazines. My all time favorite tool is my Silhouette Cameo and that is why I thought it was a good idea to have the chance to design for JustNick!
I have been married to my number one supporter Sam for nearly 18 years and we have 3 children; Braden age 18, Janica 16, and our little Angel Sterling passed away eight years ago from "The Bubble Boy Disease." Never has scrapbooking meant so much to me as when he passed away. I have all of those wonderful memories of him preserved through scrapbooking. When I am not scrapbooking, I enjoy spending time with my family. You can often find us in the mountains camping, hiking, fishing and exploring on our 4 wheeler. I also enjoy reading and traveling. Just over two years ago I became a Zumba Instructor. I enjoy keeping in shape as well as helping others to do the same all while dancing...so fun!
I'm excited to share with you one of my favorite passions with JustNick's fabulous designs!
