JustNick Cut File Store

Hello friends! Happy National Scrapbook Day. It's design team member Lee-Anne here sharing a layout I created combining two Just Nick cut files to make an entirely new design.

In Silhouette Studio, the software for Silhouette Cameo, I ungrouped or released the compound path and traced one of the heart designs (the top right heart) of the Basic Hearts cut file and enlarged it. I also traced the Borders 1 cut file, replicated it three times, one below the other, widened it slightly and placed it on top of the heart shape, grouped it and clicked "merge". This creates a heart shaped outline with the Borders 1 cut file filling the inside of the heart shape. I grouped the two design together and clicked "crop". This puts the two designs together. I cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo on white card stock and backed it with patterned papers. 

With several colors of embroidery floss, I decided to hand stitch some plus signs for texture around the layout and around the heart I hand stitched and alternated colors that coordinated with the papers.


Combining cut files into one cut file is a fun technique and you can get very creative. I encourage you to give this a try with any two cut files in the store.

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!

Hi everyone, 

This week we are sharing projects using FOUR cut files! I loved this challenge. I loved going through all the beautiful designs when choosing what would work best for my layout. I also kept in mind that a cut file doesn't have to remain in it's original state. :) You'll see what I mean in a minute. But, first, let me share with you my page:

If you have followed me at all here, it should be no surprise that background cut files are my favorite. I absolutely love using them to showcase lots of color and pattern. It really does help with adding other embellishments because there isn't much else that needs to be done!

I also used a scallop border cut file but, I trimmed it down to fit over and ground the clipboard for my journaling.

I used two different texts. Well, one is text and the other is an alpha set cut file. LOVE the alpha! So fun and unique.

Design wise, I tried something with layering my title over the text 'captured'. It worked! I really like how it turned out and you can still read the words but, not be overwhelmed.

I say, the more cut files the better! Layer them on! Trim and re-purpose! Have fun! Now, go grab some cut files and challenge yourself to using 4! Or 5... or 6... 

Cut files used: Starburst Background 1, Borders 1, Capture This, Handcut Letters
