BUT FIRST COFFEE | Nathalie DeSousa November 5, 2019 07:00

Hello there!

Nathalie with you today with a new layout that is all about my devotion/addiction to coffee.   Every time i get a new coffee mug, i always take a selfie with it, and this new mug is probably a new favorite and large enough to hold 2 cups of coffee at once :)  .. So, just imagine how happy it made me to see the new Just Nick Studio cut files, just perfect for this page!

 

 

 

 I started by creating the mixed media background of this page using VIcki Boutin Art Crayons and Pinkfresh Studio Liquid watercolors. While the background dried, i started working on the title for the page.

 

 

 

I used the But First Coffee cut file to cut the title of the page from white cardstock.  First, i set the machine to cut the "But FIrst" part of the title four times from white cardstock so i could stack them together, and create my own dimensional alphas.

 

 

I chose to stitch the "coffee" part of the title; for this, i first added an offset to the word -on my Silhouette Studio platform-, then set the inner lines of the word as a perforated line, and then send it to cut from white cardstock.  This is an easy way to obtain a stitching guide without having to pierce the holes.  I then used some embroidery thread and Espresso Liquid Watercolor - Pinkfresh Studio - to detail the word.

 

 

 

To continue the circle shape of the background (mug ring marks) i cut a circle frame from white cardstock using the Infinity Hearts cut file.   I used it to frame my picture and continue the look of the background.

 

 

To embellish my page, i chose to add embellishments from Pinkfresh Studio's Office Hours collection and Citrus Twist Kits.  I made sure that the embellishments stayed within a small color palette and had a circular shape.

 

 

I hope this inspires you to check the new cut files available at JustNick Studio - if you are a coffee lover, then you must get the cut file--, there is always something for everyone.   Remember you can always contact me with any questions!

 


FUN IN THE SUN | Nathalie DeSousa August 10, 2018 06:30

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today bringing you a Summer/sunny layout.   Summer is slowly coming to an end, so why not bottle those happy, fun memories of the season in a bright and colorful page using a few of JustNick Studio cut files.

 

To start this page, i used some Vicki Boutin Art Crayons to create the ink/painted look on the background.  

 

The background cut out was created by welding a few of the Sunburst Background 2 a few times together.  The paper that backs the center of each sun image comes from Fancy Pants' Poolside collection, and brings that sunny feeling to the page.

 

 

 

To create the title of this page, I pulled the Fun in the SUn cut file, and cut it from white cardstock.   To continue the Summer feel of the page, I used Fancy Pants  Hello Sunshine collection to back the letters iin the title.   The colors and patterns in the title balance the sunburst background.

 

 

 

Having a large and colorful title takes care of a lot of the embellishing on the page, so a few die cuts, sticker and stamped sentiments complete this page.

 

 

Love how this page just screams Summer Fun! Love the combination of cut files and fun summer patterrns.

 

Remember to stop by JustNick Studio to check for these and many new cut files available.   There is so much inspiration waiting for you!  As always, I am a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.

Enjoy The Moment | Nathalie DeSousa March 20, 2018 07:00

Hello Friends and Fans!

 Nathalie with you today bringing you a bit of Spring ( trust me we have seen too much snow and cold here in Canada) to your day.   There are so many  new designs available in the  Just Nick  Studio store, that it was so easy to create this page.

 

 

Since i wanted to break from all the snow, i chose to use vanilla cardstock as the base for this page. Next I used  the Pretty Pinwheels background to create the background of this page.  All the pinwheels were backed using papers from Studio Calico's Bookmarked kit (March 2018), and a bit of foam adhesive.

 

 

 

Before adding the background to the page, a little bit of Vicki Boutin's art crayon was added around the placement of the picture.  Then the piece of the background was attached on a bit of a slant so that there is a bit of movement to the page.

 

 

 

To decorate the picture, i added a few elements from the kit, and a few fussy cut floral motifs from one of the papers included in the kit (I love them!).   Then just added a few lines of journal at the bottom of the picture.

 

 

 


The title of this page was created using the Enjoy The Moment cut file and a few of the kit's papers.   The two cut outs were glued together with a bit of an offset, and then propped on the page with some foam adhesive.   Just a few drops of gold ink, and a few fussy cut butterflies finish this page.

 

 

I love how this page turned out, and how easy it was to put together using a few of the store's cut files.   Stop by the Just Nick Studio store to check the weekly new designs and all the previous ones, too.  As always let me know if you have questions on how this came together.
