Let It Snow And Best Day Ever January 25, 2016 07:00

Hello friends! It's Lee-Anne here and today I am sharing two layouts using three Just Nick cut files.  I also wanted to show you how to use the Little Black Dots Background Cut File as a "stencil" in two different techniques.

For the first layout, I cut out the Little Black Dots Background Cut File with my Silhouette Cameo on a 12 X 12 sheet of white card stock.  I used the negative space and dabbed the inside of the circles with an embossing dauber and then added some embossing powder in aqua, navy, and gold and heat set it with my heat gun until they were dry.  I added some of the positive circles from the cut file of the white card stock and adhered them to the background to give more texture and dimension.  I thought it made it look like snow.  I also cut out some snowflakes from the Snowflakes cut file in white vellum and aqua dot vellum, adhered them to the background and added some sequins or flair buttons to the center of the snowflakes.  I also cut out my title, the Best Day Ever cut file and added a flair button to the center of the letter D and a sequin to the center of the letter "A".  

I really had fun with this layout.  

For the second layout, I cut the Little Black Dots Background on another sheet of white card stock and used it as a stencil with some modelling paste.  Once the modelling paste was dry, I spritzed it with some Heidi Swapp Gold Colorshine Mist. I wanted to achieve the look of snow and give the layout some dimension.  Then I added my photos and patterned papers on top and cut out some vellum snowflakes on my Cameo with the Snowflake cut file on white vellum and aqua dotted vellum and added a sequin to the center of them.

 

 

Cut files make great stencils for mixed media projects.  I hope I inspired you to use your cut files in a different way.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out these and many more cut files in the Just Nick Store.

Meet our August Guest Designer - Rory Villancourt August 14, 2015 07:00 2 Comments

I came across our August Guest Designer's work on YouTube and fell in love! Please welcome our August Guest Designer - Rory Villancourt
Hello I am Rory a Family first, scrapbook addicted, dog loving, bike pedaling, photo clicking, nature lovin', simple things enjoying, Canadian Girl.
We gave Rory some bucks to spend in our store and make a few projects - check out this first project that she created!
Here is what Rory had to say about her page:
​​​I had all kinds of fun using the Sunny Days cut files for this 8.5 by 11 layout.  The cut shapes layer so nicely together.  I outlined all the files with white cardstock so they would stand out and clustered them around the page.  A few embellishments was all it took to finish it off.  This layout is the first selfie of my daughter and I in her new place.
 
Rory decided to use the Best Day Ever cut file to create this wonderful page!
Here is what she had to say about this page:
My second layout is all about the title.  It really was the Best Day Ever!  I took this photo just minutes after my daughter got the keys to her new home.  That's why I chose this cut file.  It's big and bold on the page.  I also love the look of a cursive font mixed with a blocky one.  I outlined the title cut file with white cardstock so I could pop it up on the page.  I like the shadows and that way could keep the dimension of the cut.  I love the skinny font of the words best and ever.
I had some Serious fun Guest Designing and making  layouts with these Just Nick cut files
