Hi JustNick fans!  Summer is in full gear and it's the perfect time to share how fabulous the Swiss Cheese Background file is for making those summer layouts!  Christine joining you today with a summer layout about my boys!

There are a tons of ways you could use this file but I used it to have kind of a sunrise/sunset feel to it using lots of colors.  That was easily achieved by just adding a striped patterned paper behind the file.

I cut the file on a cardstock that was already embossed and it still cut super easy!  There are also tons of options for titles in the store and today I used the Summer Words file to cut out "summer."

I added some letter stickers to personalize the title to my layout and it was done!  One of the things I love about using background files like this is that you don't have to do a ton more to the layout - they give you a really fantastic base to start with and you can just add a little more!  As you can see I added a big circle and stitching to create a sun and a few little wood pieces and words - there is not a ton to this!  

What's your favorite background from JustNick? We can't wait to see more of what you are creating with the files!

Hello, everyone! Aurelie here today and I'm so pumped to let you in on my most recent JustNick design, using the Swiss Cheese Background cut file.

This layout totally ended up differently than I had first imagined it. First off, I pulled that grey piece of cardstock out of my scrappy stash with the intention of using it with the cut file as a mask. However, once I started to ink away to my little heart's content, my eyes always darted back to the leftover circles on my cutting mat... and boom! I left my one-quarter inked page on the far end of my scrappy table, and off I went pulling some of those leftover circles from my cutting mat and gluing them through the mask and onto my red piece of background paper. And, to top it all off, totally inspired by some fellow scrappers, I decided that I wanted to make those circles pop off the page a bit more, so I circled them with a marker by hand. Super easy peasy! Here's a closer look of the effect:
