 Hey all Rachel here again. I have a fun layout to share today and although it seems busy using a large cut file in a darker colour ensures it will look fab and visually interesting.

I have used two cut files, the gorgeous Doliy 2 and Love List.

Firstly I cut 9x9 inch Doliy 2 cut file in black. I used two different flowers papers to fill the dolly, the larger floral paper in the centre. I left the scallop edge unfilled. I then foamed taped the paper pieced doliy to the centre of my 10x10 inch white cardstock. I then used another floral paper as my outer page border.

I added a circle of butterflies around the doliy, this adds to the kaleidoscope look which I was aiming for. For my photo I cut the silhouette of my daughter and attached slightly off centre. I then added some small flower embellishments around her again adding to the kaleidoscope effect.

I chose 'sweetheart' as my title from the Love List cut file. I used the off set button to cut an outer 'shadow' and then cut the word in a striped paper. The off set tool is fabulous and I recommend you have a play with it.

To finish off I added a sub title and a peacock just because I love them. I added some black machine stitching to add contrast and texture against the white and florals and last but not least a splatter of black colour mist.

Only Amy Tangerine can do these colours and busy patterns and make them so fabulous.

I love how this layout turned out, busy but beautiful!  Thank you for looking and these cut files are in store now.


Thanks Dad! - Cathy Martin June 20, 2017 05:00

Hey everyone, it's Cathy here and I'm back creating a masculine themed layout! Fathers Day was just a few days ago and I was really happy to get some fantastic photos of daddy with the kiddos!  I had been in a scrap slump, but after Sunday I had renewed energy to go and get some of those photos on a layout!

One of my favourite types of cutfile in the JustNick shop are the ones that are lots of shapes attached together.  They are perfect for backing with patterned paper!  I found one that I thought was fun and whimsical and would work well with my idea.  I'm a sucker for circular patterns so this one worked out great!  Usually I cut them using white card stock, but unfortunately I am completely out! (I know, how does that even happen right?) So I decided to use a light yellow patterned paper.  Needless to say after my Silhouette was done cutting I turned the cut file over, and ended up using the other side instead!  You can check out my Youtube video to see what I'm talking about and see how my idea evolved! 

Have an awesome scrappy day everyone and don't forget to grab a cut file while you're here!

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!

Hi cut file fans - Laureen here with you today to share a layout I made with one of the new cut files that has just been added to the shop yesterday!

They are all so lovely and I had a hard time choosing one! As you may know, I absolutely love to back cut files with patterned paper and that's what I did for this layout as well.

I used the Spacey Circle Background 2 and cropped it diagonally so the background would not be too busy - so I just had a long strip on the top and bottom to frame my page.

Here is the page using lots of yellow - which is my absolute favorite color!

 

And here are a few close- ups of the new file and the details of the page.

Dandelion WISHES April 28, 2016 07:00

Happy Friday eve everyone.  Heather Leopard is here to put a little SPRING in your step...

Once I selected the photos I wanted, I designed the rest of the layout around the title. Usually my title is one of the last things I think about but for this, it was the first. 

I created the word "dandelion" in Silhouette Studio using a free font I downloaded from the Internet called Modesty. For the larger WISHES word, I used the Shattered Alpha cut file and then backed it with coordinating papers.

With such a large, bold title, I decided to keep the rest of the layout a little more siple than I usually do, adding a few frames, rub-ons, chipboard and a little splatter mist.

Thanks for stopping by today.  How do you feel about bold title?

Hey everyone! I am excited to be back on the blog today, sharing a project made with this inspiration piece I found on Pinterest:

I love a good quilt. I wish I had the patience to make my own :) When I saw this quilt on pinterest, I instantly thought of the Positive backgrounds available in the store. I chose to use Positive Background 1 for my project.

I cut the file from some scrap cardstock and used it as a stitching template, rather than using the actual paper cut on my project. This took a little love and patience, but I like how it turned out :) I stitched the + signs with various colors of embroidery floss and then added some watercolor paint along the inside and outer edges of the + signs, adding some trimmed out + signs to some of the middles with patterned papers.

I really like how that turned out! Although I love using the cut files with paper and for paper, it's fun to use them in a different way too. I next cut a title using some words from the Hashtags 1 cut file and Capture This cut file. I cut the TODAY word 5 times and layered them together for a thicker look.

That's it for me today!! Please come back tomorrow for a special guest and there may just be a freebie in it for you :)
