Good morning! Nicole here to share a quick and easy project using our Basic Block Background and Word 4 cut files!

I haven't had a lot of mojo lately. Life just gets busy and sometimes sucks the scrappy life out of you, so I wanted to create a really simple page with no stress!

The Basic Block Background is super simple to fill. Those basic rectangles are clean and graphic and heck - you can use a lot of scraps to fill this one in if that's your plan!

I added a really simple title using the Word 4 cut file set and a lot of fussy cut flowers. Cutting those by hand relax me :)

Cut files used:

Word 4

That's it for me today! I will be back later in the week to share  a FREEBIE and a new Guest Designer too! Please stop by!

Hi Just Nick Fans!

Michelle here with a new layout to share with you all today.  I have used two cut files on my layout, firstly the gorgeous Delicate Butterflies and also the Word 4 cut files which I used to create my title. 

I new as soon as I saw this cut file I knew it would be perfect for these photos of my daughters entering the wearable arts competition at our caravan.   Yes my girls outfits are made out of paper!!  I really love the vintage vibe of this cut file which I cut out on a floral patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection.  As the name would suggest, this is a very delicate cut file - I would definitely recommend cutting it out with a sharp blade and not having a too sticky mat as it is very fine.  I really liked how the butterflies flowed down the page and I was able to tuck my photos in and around the file this helps your eye wander down the page from the first photo to my second photo too. 

Next, I wanted to add a second cut file to my layout - and the Word 4 file worked perfectly for a fun title, and adding it on the larger butterflies added an extra layer of dimension to my page too.  I first cut out the outline in some teal coloured cardstock so that it matched the colours is in the embellishments and the cut file.  Then I cut it out on white cardstock to fill in the file and make it pop off the page.  

I really enjoyed cutting out these files and using patterned paper added some interest and variance in colour to the butterflies and of course made it super easy to embellish with more of the Maggie Holmes collection.  

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  Do you cut files with mainly cardstock or do you use patterned paper as well?

Hi everyone,

Michelle here with clean and simple layout featuring the Word 4 cut file.  I really wanted to keep my cut file the main focus of the page so I decided to cut it out LARGE!  I am really happy with the way this turned out.  

First, I cut the file out on patterned paper so it gave me the green/blue outline and then I recut the file out on some cardstock, I first, made the cut file ever so slightly bigger so that it fit easily in the negative space of my outline.  I decided to keep my photo neutral and print it out in black and white and I love the softness of it agains the bold title!

I next added the globe to the middle of the 'O' as this is a photo of a recent overseas holiday it fit the theme really well and added some extra embellishments to the top!

I kept the rest of the embellishments quite simple as it is really all about the cut file here. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, have you gone BOLD and BIG with your cut files and maybe created a title that is the main focus of your page?  I hope I have inspired you to do this one day on a layout. 

Til next time xx
